Better than carrying bikes on your back.
Sure, you could ride all the way across the country like it's no big deal, but maybe the family couldn't quite keep up. Instead of towing them all, just toss the family's bikes onto the Yakima Full Tilt 5 Bike Rack. The Full Tilt comes fully assembled, so you won't waste time swearing, bleeding, and generally failing to put things together—just use the AutoPin to easily position the rack into your hitch receiver, spin the tool-free SpeedKnob to lock it down, and use the removable and replaceable ZipStrips to secure your bikes to the rack. Fully padded arms prevent scratching and an anti-sway cradle keeps your bikes from smashing into each other, and there's also an integrated Same Key Lock System that uses one key to lock the bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. You can tilt the rack backwards using the UpperHand lever, and fold it flat for easy, low-profile storage if you left the bikes at home. There's even a built-in bottle opener, so you can enjoy some grown-up refreshment (and the kids can have a root beer) after riding from New Hampshire to California and back. Or, you know, around the block.

Great Dad Gift
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I did a lot of research before buying the Yakima. This rack is great and convenient for hauling 5 bikes. It's the second rack I've owned, and it's a clear improvement over my old one. I love the easy tilt feature and the fact that it locks to the vehicle. Bikes are easy to mount, although I wish the zip tabs were a bit easier to use and attached to the rack. I'll be surprised if I don't lose a couple before the end of the season. The bike cable lock is a nice "psychological deterrent", but it's a tad short with 5 bikes.
I totally recommend the Yakima fullTilt
