    recommend a light weight/simple hitch rack

    what is a decent light weight rack for a hitch mount? I have a clunky one that i inherited and is just due for replacement. I dont want to spend a ton of cash on it, but something that offers a nice balance of durability, usability of the trunk and light in weight.

    thanks

    1Up is fantastic

    Super light weight, really easy to use. Not cheap, but worth every penny. 1Up USA

    the 1up was a bit out of the price range that i had wanted to spend. I'm sure it is worth the money though.

    I went with the kuat beta new for 180 shipped from etrailer. Light enough and simple to use when my wife rides with out me. softer on the pocket book. i didnt find many complaints so i would assume it is a safe bet.

    ^ Good choice as only you can decide how much to spend on a rack...
