Need a decent bike rack

Post by mmezest1997 on Sun Aug 11, 2013 11:56 am

We have 4 bikes that we have to transport to and from. Yesterday we borrowed a Thule 4 bike rack to go to the Soldier's Ride and spent over an hour trying to get the bikes on the rack. We had to strip one bike of both wheels and some of the bikes ended up getting scratched up in the course of the ordeal. I was looking at a Hollywood bike rack, but it appears that they don't ship over here. (looks like this: http://www.amazon.com/Hollywood-Racks-HR1400-Platform-Receiver/dp/B000QJC4AY/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER ). Any ideas or suggestions?

Are you looking for a roof rack or a trailer hitch or the hatch mount kind?

Prefer a hitch mounted rack for four bikes. The one I looked at (in the link above) doesn't ship to APO Sad

Backcountry has the Thule T2 and the add on to carry 2 more bikes. They ship to APO and give us a discount with the code.
