    How does this mount work?

    Found this on Craigslist for $35. Price is right but I'm pretty new to this and I can't figure out from the pic how it works. Little help??

    Haha. Thank you. I do understand that part. But how do the bikes go in? How many bikes??

    Is this a good set up that won't tear up or leave markings on my frames?

    Looks to me like a 4 bike unit. Can it hold a 22" and 13" mountain bikes?

    Just want to make sure it will suit my needs.

    Thanks guys

    The cradle points looks to be made of metal, so it might/will scratch your frame. As for what size will fit, depends on the shape of the frame. The bikes go into the cradles and the rubber strap goes over them and snaps in place like a belt buckle. The two prong fork part holds the seat tube so the bike won't sway. It will not work for every frame.
    You can buy rubber/foam mats or use old tubes and glue them in the cradles to support the frame so as not to scratch them.

    Ok. Well the bikes are a 13.5 (iirc) Felt Nine 70 and a 22" airborne Zeppelin Elite.

    I would think the zeppelin might be the problem child for this mount.

    I would guess you would need to pull the front wheels for this mount?

    Seem like a good deal for $35?

    Here are some better pics. How does this mount work?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1348546417.906712.jpgHow does this mount work?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1348546436.349793.jpg
