nope none here. I had a Swagman XT but it was WAY TOO HEAVY DUTY for me. Nothing against the swagman but when your rack weighs more than the bike.. we got issues. lol

Also look into Kuat Alpha and Beta's. The beta holds two bikes and only weighs 11lbs. It also has a built in hitch tightener in the base. I think the Alpha's hold 3. Both come in 1 1/4" and 2" flavors.

When you guys installed the rack on the roof, how did it do with that chrome trim? Does the clip attaches to it? It looks very flimsy and I don't want to brake it. I need some kind of rack for the skies.

You put the clip over the chrome trim. Is it solid enough?

sure will hold. I am using clips from a Honda Civic too. Not the correct one but they do the job.

Ok, looks convincing . If you can carry those bikes, the skies will be nothing for that chrome trim .. I'll try to post a picture.

Not a bike, something a little different.
