    3 bike rack for Explorer - Kuat Transfer or Swagman XTC4???

    Hello everybody. I've never used a bike rack before as I've always transported my bikes in the back of a truck/SUV. I need to carry 3 bikes and it looks like these 2 fit the bill. Any thoughts, or anything else I should consider?


    Thanks,

    Steve

    You should add the 1up to your list.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. After watching videos of all the racks I'm considering, the 1up seems to be the easiest and best built rack out there. It's expensive, but in the end, it appears to be worth it.
