Today we are going to review the Element bicycle rack from Softride, part number SR26248. A few quick facts about this bicycle rack are it is designed for a 2 inch receiver hitch and also for a 1-1/4 inch receiver hitch with the included adapter. And for a 1-1/4 inch receiver hitch, you can only use it on a class II receiver. The Element bicycle rack does come with two anti-rattle devices, one for the 2 inch version and one for the 1-1/4 inch adapter bar. The best part about the Softride Element is that it features a tilting parallelogram design. That basically helps keep the arms, that hold the bikes, level at all time. It also makes things a lot easier to load up when it is at a lower point towards the ground. The arms that hold the bicycles do fold down for easy storage and also are adjustable from a narrow stance to a little bit wider stance. That way, you can accommodate kid bikes as well as adult bikes. The cradles that actually hold the bikes are made of a rubber material that gently support the frames and also have groves built in them to accommodate the cables that are on a lot of bikes. And also the cradles come with rugged tie-down straps that hold the bikes in place while you are going down the road. 0:58
