With a lot of research I was finally guided to this rack by my bike manufacturer. This rack is awesome and a great deal. I was able to install 4 cruiser bikes with ease and they do not touch each other nor does the paint get damaged by the rack hold downs. It can also accommodate the weight of steel cruiser bikes with different style frames. It can also be used as a 2 bike rack by removing the last section, very simple process with adjustable wrench. I am petite female and although it is heavy at approx. 65 lbs. I was able to install it myself. Just use proper lifting procedures so as not to strain your back. Will be taking it on a road trip soon and will report back if possible.
