Designed for two or three bikes stowed at the rear trunk of your car with rubber cradles that protect bike frames while holding them securely. The FitDial hub adjustment system secures for a perfect fit to your vehicle trunk, quick installation and an push-button for attaching and detaching carrier arms, as well as twisting them to the side then down so they are out of your way when not in use. They also feature soft rubberized cradles that lock down bikes while still allowing complete adjustment along the bike arm, and no-sway Cages that drastically minimize frame movement to keep your bicycles from colliding.

First off, the Thule Vertex XT Hitch Mount Bike Carrier is very nice looking. As hitch racks go this thing looks really sleek and nice on the car. The curves texture is a nice touch and accents the car nicely. The unit is well made and feels solid and  it's pretty heavy. It came with everything you need, including a nice strap to hook the bikes/tires together. Installing and putting the rack together is pretty easy, but be sure to read the manual carefull. The rubber bands that hook around the bike are easy to put on and seem to hold the bikes in place properly. We really liked the lift handle for titling down the arms and the bottom one for tilting down the entire rack. It was easy to use and much more elegant than push pins. The built in lock and easy leaning mechanisms makes this  Thule easy to use. This is our favorite bike rack for the hitch.

The Yakima products ridgeback hitch bike rack is a heavy duty one. This thing weighs close to 40 pounds. We really liked the easy strip connectors. A little disappointed with the quality as the decal was peeling off the hitch before we even used it. Just cosmetic but you'd think for this kind of money it would last a little longer. Installation was incredible. We completed it within 10 minutes and it was very easy to line up the hitch and tighten. Even Fat Bikes fits easily on the bike rack, and you don't see that often. The only thing we noticed that if you own a full suspension mountainbike you can only use the straps on the far end, so keep that in mind!

The Yakima Products Holdup is a fast, secure, and convenient hitch-tray bike loader. Its StrongArm pivoting wheel hook secures your bike without contacting the frame and the side-to-side adjustability reduces the chance of bike-to-bike interference. And we all hate scratches from other bikes while on the road or bumpy roads. The Bike Rack is very well built and fits securely without any movement.We were very pleased with the Yakima Holdup 2 because of how easily the bikes fit in and don't rub or cut into each other and how the trays are adjustable to avoid handlebar/seat conflicts with other people's bikes. The need to use a wrench to screw on and off the hitch pin on the Yakima might get annoying over time. The arms work well and the locks are great. The unit comes with a locking pin, from what I read, it can easily be defeated but it should provide some protection from a thief without a toolbox so it remains safely.

The bike rack is easy to assemble, under  10 minutes  and does not need any mechanical expertise. It appears to be well built and fitted well to the hitch. The bikes are easy to mount on to the rack. We were able to mount the bikes without the need for an adapter. It allows easy access to the trunk by folding out. Also, when the bikes are not on the bike rack, it folds flat and does not stick out too much (i.e. You can close the garage door with the bike installed without bikes). The construction looks very sturdy. The connectors turn allowing us to position all 4 bikes. A great rack for a great price.

This Tyger Deluxe 4 Bike Carrier Rack is rock solid, the clasps hold bikes firmly in place, the hitch attachment (even for a 2-inch hitch) is solid metal, and the fact that extras like the hitch lock, lock, and straps are included is an additional plus.The setup was very easy, we just love the 2 locks and the 2 straps. And also all the tools were included. Another plus on the bike rack that it's very easy to adjust the angle of the bikes. We really liked that it tips forward and allows you to access the trunk, Easy does it. Super value considering this Bike Rack as it comes with a hitch lock, bike cable lock, and safety straps. This is just all we need.

This Tyger Auto Deluxe Black 3-Bike Trunk Mount Bicycle Carrier Rack is super easy to install (it comes in complete assemled) and remove as needed. It felt very sturdy on the car once attached. The rubber straps that hold the bikes on the bike rack work well and did not scratch the bike frames. The con we already saw was that there is no way that this rack can carry three bikes without them bumping together and tearing each other to pieces. The spaces in between de holders are very small as you can see on the picture above.

The Heininger Flat Rack 2 bike rack is basic and simple to utilize. Load two bicycles in seconds. The strong locking wheel ties make securing the bicycle simple to work. The transporter modifies in width to suit most normal bicycle sizes. Intended to rapidly append and disengage on a 2-inch or 1/4-inch recipient hitch, Flat Rack creases up neighboring the guard for reduced moving when it's on the auto, or simple stowage in the carport when it's most certainly not. Lightweight and simple for anybody to move. Included with your buy is a Threaded Hitch Lock with 2 keys to avoid theft.

The Allen Sports Deluxe 2 Bike Hitch Mount Rack can carry up to two bicycles. The hitch insert--which fits 1-1/4- and 2-inch receiver hitches--is easy to operate and super secure for your bikes. Just attach it to your hitch, then use the tie-down cradle system to individually secure and protect the bikes. The carry arm accommodates a wide range of frame sizes and designs, so you can carry your kid-size mountain bike or adult road bike with equal confidence. And you don't have to remove your bikes to access the back of your truck or SUV, as the rack tilts back for easy lift-gate access and folds out of the way completely when not in use.  Also equipped with a no-wobble bolt to keep the rack from moving inside the hitch, the two-bike carrier is colored with a black powder-coated finish.

The low platform design, sturdy construction and 110lb capacity of the BUZZRACK Approach make it a perfect choice for hauling heavier bikes like downhill or e-bikes, but it still accommodates bikes of almost any frame design or wheel size. Quickly adjust the wheel trays to carry women's, kids', road, mountain, full suspension and 29er bikes. Secure the bikes with no-fuss ratchet straps on each wheel and an anti-sway strap at the front. Then close and lock the padded frame clamps and you're ready to go. Need to get to the back of the vehicle? No problem. The rack tilts down for quick, convenient access to the rear hatch or tailgate. And with no bikes attached, the bike platforms fold to the center for easier parking and storage.
