Thule Vertex Bike Rack - 2 Bike $259.95
Free some space in your trunk for a cooler full of beer, a tent, and your XL grill when you strap two bikes onto the Thule Vertex Bike Hitch Rack. The extra trunk space will be much appreciated, and your bikes will be just as safe in the rugged Hold-Fast Cradles as they are locked away in the back of your car. The Vertex's arc design and Anti-Sway Cages prevent your bikes from crashing into each other or into your car, and the Hitch Switch lever lets you tilt the rack down for easy access to your camping and party supplies without having to remove your whips. The Vertex fits easily onto 1.25in and 2in hitch receivers, too, it's compatible with almost every hitch setup out there, and you can switch it between trucks and cars without having to rig up some crazy and questionable mods.

Sturdy, but not perfect
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I am impressed with the quality and durability of this product. I was surprised at the size of it...it seemed huge and heavy when I first took it out of the box, but this is the first bike rack I have purchased so maybe that is normal. The rack comes ready for a 1.25 receiver, and has a 2" adapter. The whole apparatus is inserted into the receiver hitch with one short bolt that only bolts on one side. I am not sure why they designed it this way, but it seems a bit unstable and insecure. I went ahead and bought a locking bolt that goes all the way through. This is my only complaint.
Worth every cent. You get what you pay for. I did my homework and know Back Country only sells top quality merchandise. This bike rack is no exception.
