I've been researching hitch racks as well.<p>Thus far, my favorites are the Softride Access 4 bike hitch and the Thule Parkway 4 bike rack. I'm leaning towards the Softride because it appears to be easier to load and unload bikes - a plus if my wife happens to take her niece or nephew riding. The rack is spring loaded and will lower the bikes to the pavement so they can be easily removed. The Thule Parkway rack is had at a better price but doesn't have the assist feature.
Just picked up the Hollywood 4-bike carrier... works great with the 2" hidden hitch. It tilts down at a 45 degree angle with the bikes in place to access the rear compartment.<p>read about it here. <A HREF="http://www.hitchsource.com/roadrunner4bikerack2-p-27259.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.hitchsource.com/roa....html</A><p><IMG SRC="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a112/lazzerj/IMG_1222.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a112/lazzerj/IMG_1221.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a112/lazzerj/IMG_1216.jpg" BORDER="0">
