    Carrying 5 bikes

    I need a solid set up for 5 bikes,i sometimes use a car topper so I could only carry two bikes on top if needed,and off hitch.
    Want quick and solid,dont want to take off wheels.Two bikes would be for kids 10-13.

    There are tons of 4 bikes platform/tray style hitch racks. Thule T2 Pro is my favorite. Yakima has announced a 6 bike hitch rack, and Let's Go Areo has a solution for 6 bikes too.

    Yakima hitch rack https://www.yakima.com/fulltilt

    I've found on my kids' bikes the frames are designed for hanging racks (until it's time to upgrade). Could go platform 3 bike and 2 on the roof.

    I own a Recon 5 bike rack, and it is worth every penny. It'll out live me too.

    Good info, i think im gonna replace my north shore 6 with a recon 6. Some downhill forks are just a pain with my NS and wont hang straight. Glad to hear the recon is worth the $

    I can't seem to find any news on the Yakima 6 bike rack. Do you have the link?

    Also, I too will probably upgrade to the Recon Rack 5. I just sold my Thule Pro T2
