5 Star Construction & Features but...
October 13, 2016
I don't see any way to fit 3 bikes on the 9043 so-called 3 bike version. Two modern road bikes fit nicely (handle bars on opposite sides) in cradles 1 and 3, but cradle 2 is vitually useless. Hardware, straps, locks and moving parts are very well made, and it tightens firmly into my 4 year old 1.25" hitch. Easy to handle when installing and removing from hitch.
Pros:Stable, well constructed, reasonably light & easy to handle.
Cons:In reality, 3 bike model 9043 can only carry 2 road bikes - cradles too close together and arms too short.
