Need an on-the-spot bike carrier but don't want to carry a full-sized rack around? Turn to the Allen MT-1 ultra-compact
one-bike carrier, which folds up small and fits in almost any bag, including your backpack. Ideal for traveling,
commuting, and other occasions when a portable bike rack might come in handy, the rack is small yet secure, with three
padded legs that rest against your vehicle and three adjustable straps that secure to your car's hatchback or trunk
gaps. Just as importantly, the rack holds your bike in a safe position thanks to the tie-downs and padding, which
combine to keep your bike from rocking or making contact with your vehicle. And when you're done using the rack, simply
fold it up and store it inside the included carrying bag. The one-bike rack--which sports a gray powder-coated
finish--is designed to fit sedans, hatchbacks, minivans, and SUVs.
About Allen Bike Racks Started out of founder Dick Allen's garage in 1967, Allen Sports is committed to producing the
highest-quality, easiest-to-use bike, parking, and storage racks on the market. Dick Allen, a onetime aerospace
engineer, opened Allen Sports after building a prototype bike carrier in his Lincoln, Massachusetts, shop in his free
time. The bike enthusiast tested the trunk-mounted carrier--made of electrical conduit, metal strapping, and fire hose
casings (for padding)--on weekend excursions. Shortly afterward, Allen took his design to consumers, moving from local
to national sales by 1971. Today, the company owns more than three dozen patents and operates three warehouses
nationally, two factories abroad, and sells products in more than a dozen countries around the world.
