Best Bike Option for F150

Kevin R from Medina, OH on 5/14/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We are not the biggest bikers but we do want to ride on several trails in our area. We did not need a $500 carrier. Just wanted to drop them in and go. This was the best option. I still use a ratcheting strap through the frames but that's quick. Probably not needed but a little extra precautions never hurt. I think it's a great product. Cross country drive you may want something more.

Pros: Easy, quick, does the job

Cons: Feeding straps through tailgate awkward with one person
