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. .

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

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

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


Comments
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

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

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 ordered two of these bike racks to mount on top of our pop-up camper. There aren't many good options for pulling a camper trailer and bringing bikes along, these seemed like a reasonably cost-effective solution. Although I have only used them on two trips so far (about 800 miles on the road) I am very pleased with them. Our bikes were secure the whole time. I did supplement the hold-down system with two ratchet ropes on the handlebars of each bike. Probably more out of paranoia than necessity, but one can't be too careful. I'm sure I would do the same with mounts costing 3x as much. 267028

I was very concerned about purchasing a carrier that was a fraction of the price of the well known name brands, but thanks to the reviews on this site I gave it a go (and at $47 not the largest gamble to take). I found the unit easy to assemble and install. I traveled 120 miles with it at highway speeds without any issues (I had no perception that the bike was there). My bike is a hybrid with a slightly odd frame shape, but dispite this and the main retaining arm attaching at a fairly low point on the bike frame, the hold on the bike was solid. Can't speak to the longevity of the unit, but it would seems the perfect choice for the occasional need at the very least (I'm not sure what would break or wear down). 94830

We needed something to hold our 2 cruiser bikes on an 8 hour drive from south texas to dallas and these bike racks have done that and then some. there was no rattling which i was expecting and although i don't know how a single person would be able to lift and remove their bike, my husband and i managed just fine. We now use these bike racks weekly to transport our bikes to the park. And if you are wondering about the install i did watch the video and it took like 20 minutes to build and install. They are on my van to stay. 225374

For the money this is an excellent product. I would however recommend using this rack for kids bikes or very light road bikes. The upright arms are a little flimsy. Also, the knob mechanism does not tighten unless you pinch the clamps together. This makes it awkward when trying to hold the bike upright all at the same time as squeezing the clamp together and turning the knob to tighten. Maybe I am doing it wrong? 125387

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.

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

    Since the 2 trailer hitches that we have available for your 2018 Honda HR-V are Class I rated, part # 24932 and part # C11416, you won't be able to carry more than 2 bikes with a hitch mounted bike rack.

If you have a roof rack on your vehicle, then you could look into rooftop mounted bike racks like the Swagman...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes with a Toyota Prius V
    What you have read is correct. The only hitches available for the Prius V are Class I. The bike rack and hitch manufacturers all agree that more than 2 bikes should be carried on a rack installed in a Class I receiver. Two factors contribute to this, the low 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the Class I receiver and the fact that any additional bikes after the second one would extend the load far enough rearward of the receiver opening that the extra leverage exerted could either damage...

  • Roof Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a Kids Bike with 20 Inch Wheels
    You may be able to use the Swagman roof mount bike rack, # S64720, with a 20 inch kids bike depending on the frame design of the bike. The isntructions, which I have linked for you, state that you need to get as close to a 90 degree angle as possible between the bike down tube and the support arm of the rack to carry the bike safely. You may not be able to achieve that with all frame types. I recommend going with a wheel mount rack like the Yakima FrontLoader, # Y02103. This rack will...

  • Can a Dual Hitch Receiver Be Used to Carry a Bike Rack and a Cargo Carrier
    Dual hitch receivers, like the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, # RM-077-2, are designed for flat towing a vehicle behind an RV and having the ability to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier in the top receiver. A cargo carrier and bike rack cannot be used together. For your situation I recommend using a roof mounted bike rack like the Swagman Rooftop Bike Rack, # S64720, which is one of our most popular roof mounted bike racks. If you do not have a roof rack on your 2010 Ford Escape,...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Red Strap Recommendation for Swagman Upright Bike Rack S64720
    The replacement straps you need for the Swagman Upright part # S64720 are the part # P168. The only way to prevent sun damage is going to be to remove the rack when not in use to keep it out of the sun.

  • 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 Many Bikes Will Fit on the Roof of a 2007 Toyota RAV4 with Factory Roof Rack
    You will most likely be able to get 3 bikes on the roof of your 2007 Toyota RAV4 but there are a couple of things to consider. 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...

  • Is a Trailer Hitch and Hitch Mount Bike Rack a Good Idea on 2013 Hyundai Veloster w/Center Exhaust
    To be perfectly honest a hitch mount bike rack is not the best idea on a 2013 Hyundai Veloster or any vehicle that has center exhaust. The best option if a hitch mount bike rack is what you want is to use one that is made all of metal. Aluminum bike racks, such as Kuat racks, dissipate heat better than steel. Plastic will melt. However repeatedly heating and cooling metal can damage it over time so I would avoid going with a hitch mount bike rack. The better option if you want to...

  • Bike Rack Options for a 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon
    According to Thule and Yakima, the 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon is not suitable for use with a trunk mounted bike rack because the rear hatch is not strong enough to carry the weight of the carrier and the bikes. This leaves a roof or hitch mounted system as your remaining options. I would recommend going with the hitch mounted option, which would involve installing a receiver hitch like the Draw-Tite Class II receiver, part # 36334. This hitch will fit your Outback as long as it is not...
