I'm going to step up here so we can talk about our rack and how it's attached. The nice thing about this bike rack is that there's no frame contact it's being held in place just by the tires themselves so if you have a more expensive bike or you don't want any of the paint to get damaged this is a great bike rack for you.

As you can see we already have a bike loaded up on our Inno Multi Fork, so you can an idea what it would look like with your bike. To start off we'll go over how it attaches to our rack. At the back you'll have this strap, it secures into the bracket right here, and release with the button. It also has a button on the other side, so if you've got a bike with taller wheels you can adjust it so that it sits a little higher. I don't if it's by design, or it just is a happy accident, but there's a hole on this side of the strap, and then a little notch on the other, so you can pull it down like that, which I think is kind of cool, it's kind of nice. It gives you a nice grip around the strap so you can get it on there pretty tight.
