    Hitch rack - Hanging

    I have a 16" Guardian and I was wondering if I could use a hitch rack that the frame hangs from given the top tube shape. I really don't want to spend 300+ on a rack, and it appears that all the good platform rack that fold up run at least that much.

    I need something that can fold since I don't plan on taking the rack on and off.

    Thanks.

    After using hanging racks for years, I picked up a platform rack on craigslist for a road trip. I'll never go back to a hanging rack. It's not a Thule or Yakima, but it's not a bad either, particularly for the price. I found it for $40, but even at full price it's a pretty good rack. Take a look at the Bell Up-Right https://www.amazon.com/Bell-Right-3-Bike-Hitch-Rack/dp/B00FEQLVWQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1473606630&sr=8-1&keywords=bell+rack+hitch
