Alright...I purchased a Raxter Tarsus 1.25 and so far I am digging it. Crazy light, crazy low profile, and KISS approach.
I bought it because I can take it on-off the car so easily due to it having a "push button" hitch pin. AKA push down and pull and the bike is off the car in less than 2 seconds. With this design comes some inherent wobble since it isn't bolted or wedged in.
With two bikes on this results in some concerning wobble. They aren't going anywhere, but I worry that that much play over miles and miles may cause damage to my hitch or to the rack. Literally the far outpoints of the rack have at least 3-4 inches of vertical movement. Is this just paranoia that this may cause damage?
I can easily order a threaded pin setup for like $10, but that defeats part of the reason why I purchased this rack.
