    did you guys see this?

    man, if they were to make a hitch rack like that it would be the smallest and lightest!

    That is cool, not sure I like all that stress on the crank and BB. However I'm no engineer.

    i had roof rack called the ackle bitter that held my bike by the cranks, no problems... that area is one of the strongest area on a bike, i would only worry if you had carbon crank arms...

    A little on the clunky side with all of the extra little pieces and folding out this and that.

    Then again, to have a rack that is so completely hidden and that slides right out from the car...that is pretty cool!

    And yeah, I'd rather have a clamp on the crank arm, then the other car rack norm (clamp on the downtube/top tube)

    i took a shuttle from moab to the porcupine rim trailhead and the van they used had the same concept. slide the crank into a sleeve and you're golden.

    i like how that thing pulled out of the bumper...pretty cool.
