    Swagman xc safe for carbon frame? cheapest rack that doesn't contact frame?

    I was reading swagman doesn't recommend using it on a carbon frame? there probably isn't much to worry about but im thinking better safe then sorry. whats the cheapest hitch rack that doesn't clamp down on the frame then? I saw in ebay completed listings a sportworks transport sold for like $80! too bad theres no current listings. I could get a used saris thelma 2 bike for around $220.

    I just put a small towel between the frame and hook. I dont see any scratch so far, been over 3 mth with swagman xtc2. Happy with it.
