It's great that I can get replacement parts and not have to buy a new bike rack every other year. I highly recommend Allen for quality and service.
Works well....BUT...does NOT have the elastic that the original strap has. Be aware of this prior to purchase. You WILL be retightening these straps....often....
The same as with the Bottom Straps
Perfect solution for added stability. Took only a few minutes to add straps, synch up to our 2002 Civic and hual our bikes out to the lake for an evening ride.
I like the rack a lot. This is my second rack. Polyester straps seem to last about +2 years, whereas the rack for many more. I will re-strap my rack when the time comes.
