The bar works fine, it would be nice if it was a little more adjustable, given that on my bike, it didn't fit nicely around my headset, and ended up holding the bike by the stem. It's more of a peeve than a genuine issue. On the plus side, this had the benefit of not allowing my handlebars to turn when on the bike rack.
I've racked up close to 150 miles with my bike on the rack, and I've had no cause for concern regarding the crossbar, it has always kept it's position on the bike.
I'm not sure how long it will last, given that it is two overlapping halves held together by an elastic strap, which isn't an issue when it is holding a bike, as the saddlepost, and the stem/headset stop the two halves extending, but I think the elastic may snap in a few years time.
All in all, it's excellent value, and I haven't had any problems so far.
I recommend this product!
I like:cheaper than other bars., bike feels secure when lifted by the bar., no issues in ~150 miles of use.
I don't like as much:doesn't have a lot of potential for adjustment, unsure how long the elastic will last.

How many bikes will one hold? If I need to carry two bikes, will I need to buy two of these?

Yes, the bar fits between the saddlepost, and the stem of one bike, allowing you to hang the bike from your rack, using the bar.

Bike size??

It does not say on the packaging what size frames...
It extends to match the frame you attach it to. I haven't come across any adult frame it doesn't fit.
