How does the bike stay upright on the Free2Go?

The Free2Go bike rack works collaboratively with the bike to be transported safely. A Stabilization strap is used to hold the front wheel in parallel with the rest of the bike. This strap, in cooperation with the other straps ensures that the bike stays rigid on Base Mounts while the Base Mount Straps hold the bike down on the rack. The protective pads provided ensure the bike and car remain safe during travel.

How are the bike and car protected from each other?

Every bike rack on the market touches the car in some manner. Some touch the car in upwards of 6 places. Free2Go’s base mount unit screws into the two bumper ports. Free2Go provides foam protective pads which are consistent with those used on many bike rack models to attach to one or two locations on the bike. With the proper installation per the guide provided and the protective pads both the bike and the car will be transported safely. (See Free2Go instructions, sections 5 and 7)
