Strengths:    Light, easy on, easy off.

Weaknesses:    Serious design flaws. Horrible for non-standard bike frames.

Bottom Line:   
The rack is well made, light, and fairly sturdy. But the anti-swing downtube strap is located directly under the arm, not to the side. Meaning its in the wrong place to hold it tight.

Strengths:    Looks, flexibility, and most importantly it holds the bike(s) very firmly with no sway whatsoever. Excellent customer service.

Weaknesses:    Plastic componetry.

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike rack. It holds the bike(s) firmly, easy to install the rack (after you've done it a couple of times), easy to put the bike onto the rack and it is easy to adjust. The only thing that I would improve upon is the use of the plastic screws used to tighten the arms. One of mine stripped on the second time I used the rack, but I called Saris and they sent me replacement screws right away. They have great customer service.
