Video Transcript for Swagman Upright Roof Mounted Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at our Swagman Upright Roof Bike Rack, part number S64720. The Swagman Upright's the perfect solution for carrying a single bike on the roof of your vehicle. It's ideal because you don't have to remove the front tire, which will allow it to accommodate a wide variety of bikes. The bike sits here in our wheel tray, and is held in place by this upright arm which clamps around our bike frame. Two cinch straps are included to better secure your wheels to your wheel tray. The universal clamps allows your bike rack to mount directly to your round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory roof rack systems. You won't have to worry about your bike turning up missing. The knob in our upright arm free-spins when locked, preventing anyone from loosening the clamp around our bike. The wheel tray itself is adjustable to accommodate a maximum wheel base of 54 inches.

Simply loosen these 2 bolts here. You just need to be sure that you have a minimum cross-bar spread of 28 inches. It features a nice black powder-coat finish, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. It has a weight capacity of 35 pounds. It also features a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. So I want to make sure that we have the front portion of our bike rack, which is this right here, going to be facing forward.

We've already got some roof rack system installed on our vehicle. Let's go ahead and place it on top. When setting it in place, we want to make sure and favor one side. Whichever side we want to access the bike from. With that being settled, let's go ahead and grab one of our clamps.

We're going to go underneath our roof rack system here, and then up through the provided holes. Just like that. With that being done, let's go ahead and grab one of our thumb screws and put that on top. Grab another one and do the same thing right here. We don't want to tighten that down all the way. We'll go ahead and grab another one of our clamps.

So then we'll just repeat the same process over here. Bring our clamp underneath, and up through the provided holes. All right, now with both of those in, let's go ahead and tighten them evenly. No reason to over-tighten. Once they're nice and snug it provides a good fit around the roof rack system. That's just about right. Now here at the rear, this one's going to attach a little bit different. We've actually got a plate that's going to go underneath our low-bar, so our clamp is actually going to come down through the top with the provided holes. Just like that. So then we'll take our plate with the flat position pointing upward. Go underneath. Then we'll take our thumb-screw, and screw that on bottom. Now with one started, we'll take our other one and put that on the other side. Then we can tighten those down evenly. All right, that seems pretty good. We'll also want to be sure that we have our cinch-straps in place so we can hold our wheels to our bike rack. So we'll grab one and run it through the provided slots on the bike rack. We'll bring it through, and then through the other side, and then that one's ready to go. We'll do our other one up front. You want to make sure that your upright arm is completely loosened up, ready to receive your bike tube. Now we'll grab our bike, and come up, and set it in our wheel tray. You make have to adjust your crank back a little bit. We'll raise up the upright arm. We'll roll our bike forward. We'll get it placed where we want it, and then we'll push it just like that until it gets around the jaw, and then we can tighten that down. All right, that feels pretty good. We'll grab our keys and we'll lock that down. That way nobody can undo it. Now we'll move on to our front strap. We'll run that through our cinch. Pull that nice and tight. If we need to we can adjust a little bit so the cinch doesn't touch our wheel and scratch our finish. Just like that. Now for our final strap back here. All right, then we're ready to hit the road. Now as you can see with our bike all loaded up we've still got plenty of room on our roof rack system for other Swagman accessories. With it loaded up, let's go ahead and take it out on our test course and see how it performed. Here on our test course, let's first go into our slalom. This is going to show side to side action, such as going around corners, or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed-bumps. This is going to show a twisting action, such as going over potholes, or uneven pavement. Then finally onto our solid speed-bumps. This is going to show an up and down action such as pulling in and out of a driveway, or out of a parking garage. That's going to complete our look at the Swagman Upright Roof Bike Rack part number S64720. .

This Swagman bike rack is exactly what my family needed. Great quality at an affordable price. We go biking weekly in our Scion XB and with 2 on the roof and 2 on the hatch its perfect. Thanks to the folks at etrailer for a smooth purchase and fast delivery. 101882

UPDATE**** Its been over a year using this rack and if I had the chance to go back in time, I would have spent the extra $$ on another brand. These work, BUT they do not feel secure. The bikes rock back and forth no matter how tight you secure it. One lock will not lock and the other is sketchy at best. The downtube clamps scratch the bikes paint and the tightening mechanism stripped on one of my units. My kids walmart bikes are one thing but my Trek road and mtb deserve better. You get what you pay for.

Looks great on top of my TL. Straps could have been made better but overall a good purchase 521434

The rack instruction were fairly simple, the pictures helped a lot. It took 2 try's to get everything lined up so the bike would fit. At first I had the front of the tire tray and the front of the rack lined up and my bike didn't fit, so after taking it all apart and moving everything forward everything lined up nice. It does say that it fits tires up to 3" I'm running 2.5" tires and it dosent fit in the tray completely. That's really my only complaint! 371779

I can add my name to the list of people that were skeptical about the price but pleasantly surprised. This is a nifty little roof rack. I bought one for a 25 pound mountain bike and it has served me very well as an occasional user. It is certainly easy to use and assemble. My only minor quibble is that the arms that clamp together onto the bike frame don't move smoothly. You have to do some wiggling and pull them apart a bit to get them open, then clamping them down is easy and they hold firmly. I tried it out at 55 mph + and was nervous the first time but everything worked the way it was supposed to. I have left it on my car for about 5 months (I don't use it often) and no signs of wear or rust so far. 151930

So far good for the money. This bike carrier is clearly not as good quality as most of the Thule or Yakima or other higher-end racks, but they work. It's a bit of a contraption. More parts to put together and the parts are definitely flimsier than the better racks. The lock mechanism should have been left off an replaced with a more solid knob imo. All that said, I have not had any problems at all so far. I've carried the bike over bumpy roads, curvy roads, highway, city streets, all without incident. I did not experience bikes tilting or anything like that. One thing to look out for is that the clamp has to fit around your down tube. The bike I mainly carry (Trek 7.3) has a fairly large down tube, and the clamp barely fits over it. The clamp might not fit on a bike with a larger tube. I would also suggest replacing the screws that hold the two halves of the bottom rail together. I am certain they're going to rust quickly. That's probably true of the other exposed parts as well. Works similarly to the better carriers, just that all the parts are lower quality. After springing for all Thule parts for the other parts and a kayak carrier I had to cut costs somewhere. So far it's working out fine. 201874

This product is easy to install on manufacturer's roof rack and easy to use when mounting bikes. One word of caution - using the provided tie-down straps on the bike wheels is essential for safety. I made the mistake of forgetting the straps one windy road trip day. At highway speeds, the bike eventually came out of the frame lock. 73606

I have 2 carriers on my roof rack, mainly used for traveling long distance. Ive found it helpful to use a bungee cord between the 2 bikes for extra stability at highway speeds.

For the price, this bicycle carrier well exceeded my expectations. It is very easy to use and quite stable. I carry my Cannondale Adventure 3 bike on it. I actually mounted it in the bed of my Nissan pickup. I made 2 simple cross bars to attach to the cargo tie-down rails on the floor of the truck. It is very secure and can be removed and installed very quickly. 146993

Purchased three of these at the last minute for our trip which is in total 3000 miles. Price was amazing as they were on sale for under $40 each. Easy to put together and mount on truck cap. Metal track is lightweight and bendy, but I already knew that from other reviews and it didn't cause any issues. Very easy to clamp bike in and nice that the clamp locks. The straps to tie down tires are a bit cheap so I purchased some 11" giant twist ties that are rubber coated from Home Depot. I used both the straps and ties and there was no way the tires were coming out. I had read about the end caps on the track coming off so I glued them on as I was mounting them. After 3000 miles I haven't lost a thing. The only thing I did notice was that one of the forks on a rack had some side to side movement up by the clamp so the bike would rock a bit more side to side than the other two. It looks like the rod slides in and out of the clamp. I think I will just use some JB Weld on it and it won't move anymore. Overall these are great bike racks and for the price they are amazing. I would definitely recommend. 418565

Received the bike racks a few days earlier than expected. Was able to install this afternoon. Works great. Well worth the money.. easy to install.

Product was excellent. I mounted it on my rack on the back of my RV. Consequently, I had to modify the mounting slightly since the mounting did not include rails. But, the mounting was easy to the base of the rack. The bikes mount easily and securely in the bike rack. Great Product! 816435

We have used the Swagman Roof Rack a number of times when we have needed the additional bike carrying capacity. It took a couple attempts to get the initial spacing of the bike rack properly balanced on the van’s roof rack as recommended by the instructions. But it was easy to do and once set was very easy and quick to put on and take off. The rack works great, the bike is easy to put into place and secure. The bike and rack are very stable and quiet and haven’t required any mid-trip adjustments. We always put the cheapest bike on the roof (lol) but do use a bit of duct tape to protect the finish just Incase. We are very satisfied with the rack and consider it quite a deal for the money. 751538

It's a little bit of an ordeal getting it mounted and taking it off the roof rack...not difficult but tedious. And, as others have said the quality isn't perfect, BUT for the price I don't think you'll find better. I've put three bikes on top of our Chrysler minivan with these and driven a couple hundred miles each way with no problem. Bikes are secure and never tilt or anything. 671011

Ask the Experts about this Swagman Roof Bike Racks

  • How Many 26 Inch Bikes Fit on 2012 Toyota Sienna Roof Rack?
    The Upright Roof Bike Carrier # S64720 will each take up about 10-12 inches each in bar space for a practical fit. Each carrier will take up about 7 lbs which you will need to add to the rack capacity along with the bike weight installed. For your 2012 Toyota Sienna, the rails are typically 50 inches and have a total capacity of 165 lbs. So, I think you'd be comfortable with 4 bikes, but if you wanted things tight, you could fit 5. You can mount them forward or rearward alternating...

  • Replacement Locking Knob for Swagman Upright Roof Bike Carrier
    To replace the locking knob on your Swagman Upright Roof Bike Carrier # S64720, you will just need the Replacement Locking Knob # P1030. This will work perfectly on your bike carrier and will include 2 keys. The Replacement Locking Knob # P1040 that you referenced is designed for XP Series bike carriers from Swagman and will not fit your Upright model. For the replacement rubber jaw, you can use part # P311.

    Normally I would be able to confirm this just by looking at the crossbars, but the OEM bars for your Audi Q7 look a little more squared than the typical OEM crossbars so you'll need to take a few measurements just to verify. The Swagman Upright Roof Bike Carrier # S64720 will fit with max crossbar dimensions of 3-1/8" wide x 1-7/8" tall. As long as your OEM crossbars don't exceed either of those then you're good to go!

Since the bikes will be close together, I would not recommend the Swagman # S64720 roof bike racks.

First, you will likely have to alternate the directions the bikes are facing. The outer two would face forward and the center one would face backwards. This will allow the bikes to be closer together. The other issue to look at is the weight capacity of the factory roof rack. this information should be on the roof rack itself or in the owners manual. Provided...

  • Roof Frame or Wheel Bike Rack for a Rhino Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack
    I have a few solutions for you, but the Swagman Upright, part # S64720 is not compatible with the Rhino Rack 2500 series roof rack. The Upright only works with square, round and some factory bars. Instead, I recommend the Thule ProRide XT, part # TH598004. This rack is a frame mount clamp that will fit to the channels of the RhinoRack crossbars, part # RRVA118B-2 that you have, and provide a good, solid mount for your bikes. It doesn't include locks, but they can be added as part #...

  • How to Best Attach Thule Peloton Bike Carriers to VW Factory Roof Crossbars
    Thule used to offer an adapter to allow their roof-mount bike racks to attach to factory roof racks like that on your 2008 Volkswagen Jetta but they no longer do, so a new rack will be your best option and we can help you to choose one.

  • Roof Rack and Bike Rack Recommendation for a Pop Up Camper
    If you can't move your current crossbars closer together you would need to install a second set of the SportRack Crossbars for Pop Ups part # SR1020 that are close enough that you could mount a bike rack to it. Then you could use the Sportrack Bike Rack part # S64720 on it.

  • Will the Swagman Roof Top Bike Carrier Hold a 2-1/2 Inch Diameter Bike Frame on a Subaru Outback
    I spoke with my contact at Swagman and the jaw on the Swagman Rooftop Bike Carrier, # S64720, that you referenced will not hold your 2-1/2 inch bike frames. We do have a number of other rooftop bike racks that will work for you. I would recommend either the Thule UpRide, # TH599000, or the SportRack Roof Bike Carrier, # SR4883. The Thule Big Mouth will accommodate bike frames up to 3-3/8 inches in diameter and is one of our most popular rooftop bike racks. The SportRack bike rack...

  • Installing Multiple Bike Racks on Vehicle Roof
    If the crossbars on your roof are long enough, and the total weight of the bikes you're carrying and the weight of the bike carriers don't exceed the weight capacity of the vehicle roof or the roof rack, you can certainly carry more than one bike.

I've linked you to additional information about roof racks.
