Video Transcript for Swagman Fork Down Roof Bike Rack Review - 2013 Nissan Xterra

Today on our 2013 Nissan XTerra well be test fitting the fork-style roof-mounted bike rack from Swagman part #s64710. With our roof-rack system already installed onto our vehicle, well place our bike carrier directly onto our crossbars. To secure the front part of our carrier well feed the U-bolts underneath our crossbar and up through the holes in the platform. Well secure the front part of our carrier by installing wing nuts on each U-bolt and tightening them down. Well move to the rear. Well feed the U-bolt through the top of the carrier making sure that it goes around the crossbar. Well install the wing nuts and tighten them down securing the rear part of our bike carrier. Now we need to make sure that the skewer is open and that the rear wheel strap is undone. Well grab our bike; place it onto the carrier dropping the front forks down onto the skewer.

Well secure it first by tightening the skewer and then move to the rear and secure our bike by tightening down the wheel strap. With that done, our bike is all loaded up and were ready to hit the road. That completes todays test fit for the fork-style roof-mounted bike rack from Swagman, part #s64710 on our 2013 Nissan XTerra.

Goes together quickly, appears that it will fit my needs in terms of being cross-compatible on a variety of vehicles. Fit on a Subaru Outback factory crossbar and transported bike locally with no issues when I got it out to set up and test (not quite warm enough to ride much yet where I live). Instructions are not super, but the assembly is pretty straightforward so that is not a problem. At the price point, if this rack indeed holds up to swapping onto multiple vehicles and lasts me a few years, I'll be thrilled with the purchase.


Comments
Update to my review. Does not quite fit on Whispbar Aero...maybe if I muscled the u-shaped screw part of the mounting brackets a little so theyd be wide enough to fit over the crossbars, but not going to try that and then have it not fit my Subaru racks. Still stand by my four stars at this price point but would be irritated if it were yakima or thule expensive.
-- comment by: JH - 03/30/2014

The Whispbars are pretty wide, in fact they are the widest bar we carry. Glad to know you are still happy with the rack.

I like the fork-mount design in general for roof mounted bike carriers, and this product gets the job done. (We have 3 attached to the SportRack SR1002, and this seems to work well for us.) However, the assembly instructions were not well written or well illustrated. For example, there is a short carriage bolt that one basically has to guess about where to install, and also you may have to insert some of the bolts backwards from the instructions so that they don't interfere with quick release that clamps onto the fork.



- S64710

I purchased two of these racks, along with another rack that is meant to hold bikes with both tires still installed. I am extremely happy with all three of them. This rack specifically is very sturdy. Installation was sort of a pain, but that was mostly due to me installing it on the top of my 2004 GMC Yukon XL...it is so high that it was a little hard to install. But now that it's installed, it's actually very simple to take the bikes on and off. I've made one round trip with these racks, so I've put the bikes up there and removed them twice. Both trips (about 100 miles each way) they bikes were super sturdy and I had no concerns about them falling off or anything like that. I would definitely recommend this rack if you're looking for a fork down roof mounted bike carrier. In fact, I will very likely get another one when we add another bike to the family. I think I'll be able to fit four racks on the top of my Yukon easily. One last note - I was initially concerned about the height of my vehicle when bikes were on top of them. I brushed a couple of tree limbs when pulling into my camping spot, but it was no big deal. I think the total height of my load was about 10 feet, which was lower than the camper that I was pulling.

by:

Just finished mounting the bike carriers to my 2003 Escape. The assembly went well except that I had to remove 1/4" from the u-bolts on the end opposite the quick release to keep them from damaging the roof. I'm looking forward to taking our bikes on a camping trip this week. See the picture of one bike on the Escort. Thanks for prompt delivery, communication, and packaging.

by:

etrailer and their associates were awesome. I ordered 2 of the swagman fork mount roof racks and they were easy to assemble and worked great. Also on this order part of my order wasn't going to be in on time so they were a great help in cancelling that part and getting the rest of my order to me in time for my trip. I will for sure be shoppinion with etrailer for any future needs.



- S64710

The rack is fairly easy to install. Unfortunately the rack easily bent the first time I used it as the metal runners are made out of thin metal. Hopefully the rack will continue to function and not bend anymore.



- S64710
by:

Driving from Chicago to LA currently and the bike rack is great. Attached to my aero bars easily and very secure. Would definitely buy again and I would use etrailer to do so.



- S64710
by:

Excellent rack for a reasonable price! They even included some extra parts.



- S64710
by:

The rack was pretty much as should be expected at this price point. It works, but not great quality. For one, the paint easily chips off. Another, the rails are a bit flimsy and twist when you tighten the rear wheel firmly. The directions don't explain a number of small items (which make for a better installation) such as make sure the lever is positioned on the outside for easier installation of the bike, why is there one different bolt, whether the bikes should be mounted forward, backward or it doesn't matter, the rails have a right (and less right) way of going together, the strap for the rear tire "will" fall off of the rack if you forget to reinsert it after taking the bike off of the car. Despite these shortcomings, the rack works well at an inexpensive price...I think a pretty good value



- S64710
by:

Assembles and attaches to rack easy enough and seems sturdy. Bought two to go with a new rhino rack. Don't plan to leave these on the rack all the time only when we need to move the bikes around. Put the bikes on and drove around a bit and no issues, time will tell. I have a comparable thule rack and these are functionally the same and the cost is significantly less. Can't really lock it to the rack unless you use a cable or something and maybe the longevity is not as good as the thule but otherwise these are great for what we need them for. No brainer.



- S64710
by:

Cheap, does the trick. No lock, Metal corrodes slightly after a year of use. The connection points to the rack are a bit harsh, just metal, so it’s a secure connection, but can damage a rubber strip on your roof rack if you have one.



- S64710
by:

The bike rack is very good for the price. How the rack attaches to the utility bars could be better; but will do the job. On the front of the rack there are two U bolts that wrap around the bottom of the utility bars. They could easily include 2 "weight distribution brackets" for the bottom of the front U bolts (like they have for the rear U bolt). I would happily pay a little extra. Even with that complaint the rack still attaches securely and will certainly transport my bikes with little drama.



- S64710

I have been looking for an affordable bike rack for quite some time. I kept thinking that I should just go for it and buy and Thule, but could never justify spending almost as much on a rack as I did on the bike! I finally decided to just go for it and try something, instead of continually putting it off. I am really pleased with my choice. The rack is great, the bikes fit perfectly on the two racks we bought (I'm 5'3" and my partner is 6'1" so we have very different sized bikes). I would give this 5 stars, except for the fact that the instructions for installation were very hard to follow. Once we figured it out, installation was SUPER EASY. The racks are sturdy, and we were able to travel 4 hours without any trouble at all. We have oval bars, and it fits just fine!

Quality product. Works as it should



- S64710
by:

Met all expectations! Great price and easily made the journey nice and secure atop my 2015 Subaru Outback. Pretty easy to mount up, I'm sure not quite as easy as the more expensive ones, but not difficult at all. For someone like me who will only occasionally use it, this is perfect.


Comments
it worked great, very please with it, until I just ran into a low clearance bar and bent it completely up along with ruining the cross bars. The rack did its job thought held onto the bike and worked great, just a bad driver decision.
Brian W - 08/05/2016



- S64710
by:

So far so good. Bike tray installation took a little bit of time, but wasn't hard, just time consuming. After install, I put my bike on it and took it for a test drive running errands for about two hours. Worked fine without any trouble and feels really solid. I've been a die hard Thule person but their prices for racks are just way too high. First time buying an "off brand" but for the price I think it was a good investment.


Comments
Still working great

Once I decided which ends get bolted together, it was quick going. This rack fits on factory cross bars for Dodge/Chrysler minivan (2016). I bought 2 of these and mirrored the fork clamp bolt (passenger side clamp on wrong for easy access) I plan to add plasti-dip to contact points w/cross bars to avoid damaging the finish. I think this will do the trick for vacation family bike hauling!



- S64710
by:

Just installed. Instructions a little "fuzzy". Set it up, installed bikes, did all adjustments. Appears to hold bikes firmly.

after initial install, product has performed flawlessly. have transported 2 bikes on several occassions in excess of 2000 total miles. bikes held securely. great value for the dollar.

Easy to install and remove. Fits perfectly and allows rear hatch to open fully on 2008 Grand Cherokee. Holds mountain bike securely even on long trips over varied terrain.

I bought three of these and have used them every weekend for about a month now. It serves its purpose well and is a good rack for the price. Bikes are very sturdy when mounted to this rack. Only downside is that it's not lockable, and it takes a few minutes to install/remove it. I knew this before I bought it though, and am overall very happy with the purchase... especially when I look at other fork mount racks that are three or four times the price of this one.



- S64710
by:

Works great on 2010 Mazda 5 with factory racks. I purchased two and it took about 40 minutes to install both: 30 minutes for the 1st one and less than 10 minutes for the 2nd one. Inexpensive and stable. Would definitely recommend and will probably purchase a third one.



- S64710
by:

The Rack came quick and described well. It is a very inexpensive rack, so that in mind. it has a bit of hardware and some minimal instructions and some extra pieces not described in the instructions. It is a great rack for the money. goes on easy, holds secure, looks pretty good, a great deal for the money.


Comments
it was great for what it was. my girlfriend drove it under a carport with a bike on it...woops ! it happens. anyway, turns out good that it was kind of soft metal because it bent and saved the bike and the roof of the car. otherwise we would still be using it. works great for road bikes.

  • Recommended Roof Mounted Bike Carrier for Factory Roof Rack on 2020 Toyota Prius Prime
    Although it's a pretty good entry-level roof mount bike rack, The # S64710 Fork Down bike rack wouldn't be a fit around the crossbars you specified. If you choose a rack at a slightly higher price point, you'll find that they attach to the roof rack via the top channels or grooves in the crossbar. The Inno # INXA391 Fork Lock would attach in this manner, so it won't matter how wide the crossbar is. The rack is compatible with bikes with a 9mm quick release skewer and will work with...

  • Disc Brake Compatibility of the Swagman ForkDown
    When a rack like the Swagman ForkDown, part # S64710 is marked for no disc brakes, it could mean a few things. The Rack's mounting bracket goes outside the fork, its mount shank doesn't have room for the disc brakes because it's too short, its fork mount is too short to accommodate most standard brake sizes, or the rack's clamp mechanism can bend or break the fork mount. For the ForkDown, it's all four. A comprable rack that is disc brake compatible is the SportRack Downshift Plus,...

But I tested a different end piece, # Y8820114, and it does fit Swagman bike rack # S64710. It threads on a little more snug than the original but it does thread correctly. The skewer itself cannot be replaced because it is held in its housing with a clip and there is no access to it.
