dented car, tough fit for some bikes
Used the KingJoe Pro 3 on the back of a 2011 Subaru Outback with three bikes - 1 adult mountain bike, 1 adult small women's hybrid and 1 kids 24. The lower support area which meets the vehicle just below the license plate left a sizeable dent in the gate. The mountain bike fit fine but bikes with angled top tubes are tough. It's difficult to not have the handle bars from one bike sticking through the spokes of the other.
Does the job
Quickly straps to my 2003 VW GTI (Golf) and carries my bike with ease. PROS: Very sturdy, durable, well built, easily adjusted, easy to use, folds into self when you aren't carrying bikes. CONS: My full-suspension bike (Santa Cruz) won't slide past the first set of straps/mounts due to the suspension/frame design. Rack carries 3 Road bikes O.K., but 3 mountain bikes isn't easily done. I'm sure the construction would carry the weight, it's a matter of room when it comes to carrying them. Has plenty of room for 2 mtn bikes though. Overall, I would buy this again and recommend it.
