    What do you guys think of this Rack?

    Amazon.com : Prorack 2-Bike Hitch Platform : Automotive Bike Racks : Sports & Outdoors

    I was going to buy a Raxter rack but my budget has diminished a bit because I bought another bike and I still have to buy the hitch for my Mazda3 from e-trailer.

    Good reviews, good price wondering if anyone has one or have any negative/positive thoughts on it. Open to suggestions w/this budget in mind. The 1UP is awesome but out of range.

    TIA

    Sorry if the title was misleading

    Many people have that one and it's clones. That design is used by many other small players. Its a solid design. Only issue is the hook clamps down on the bike frame.

    What exactly is the issue with that? Seems to be padded and I'm sure you can put some extra padding on there too.

    Thanks guys! Yes, it looks padded on the arms that go on the frame and I was thinking of adding something extra. I shall pull the trigger soon

    I did a trip from MN to Moab. By the time we got there the arm had polished my buddy's raw frame to a mirror shine and my anodized black frame was showing some wear. On short trips it's of no issue but it's something to keep an eye on. One thing loved about it was how light it was and folded up quite small compared to the Kuat NV I have now.
