Comparison Of Bicycle Hitch Racks

1upUSA Aluminum Quik-RackIf you want a speedy set-up, try the aluminum Quik-Rack from 1upUSA. With a lifetime warranty and solid aluminum construction, this rack comes fully assembled. It holds your bike securely by the wheels and folds down to fit back in its reusable box. When you purchase the rack, it comes with a single tray only. Add-ons are separate. Although it has an anti-theft security bolt to keep the rack from being stolen, you will have to lock your bike to the rack itself. As of 2011, it costs about $300.

Swagman XC Hitch RackIf you need to carry multiple bikes but have to stick to a budget, the Swagman XC hitch rack does the job of the more expensive racks at a fraction of the cost. It slides onto your receiver and carries two bikes. If you have a class III hitch, you can add another module to carry up to four bikes. The XC accommodates all bike types, including Y frames and kid's bikes, through its adjustable wheel hoops. Soft grip arms hold your frames without damaging the paint and it folds up easily when not in use. Compact and lightweight,chinese 125cc dirt bike parts , its telescoping tubes adjust side to side to hold a variety of bike sizes from kid's to large mountain bikes that weight up to 50 lbs. each. A pull-pin release lever allows you to tilt the rack up or down to open your trunk. As of 2011, you can buy the Versa for approximately $270.

Thule Ridgeline Four Bike Hitch RackAmong racks that accommodate more than four bikes, the Ridgeline Four ranks high. It offers a Stinger Swinger hitch that converts quickly from a two inch to a one and a quarter inch right out of the box. Quick release levers allow for access to your trunk whenever you need it. Its cradles hold your bikes securely and the anti-sway device prevents bikes from rubbing together. Although designed to carry four bikes, reviewers found that three bikes fit easily. Adding a fourth required significant adjustments. It should not be used as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
