    Help Me Decide

    Narrowed it down to these two. I have to clear a 33x12.50 spare tire for both open and folded positions. I typically travel less than 1 hour each way to go riding with my son once a week or so spring/summer.

    1. Amazon.com : Swagman XTC Cross-Country 2-Bike Hitch Mount Rack (1.25 and 2-Inch Receiver) : Automotive Bike Racks : Sports & Outdoors $169.99 (free shipping). I would need to add a 7" hitch extension ($49.95). Holds 2 bikes. Besides the tire straps, it uses a padded ratchet arm on the frame. Tire trays can move side to side. About 33 lbs. Hitch extension lowers my 250 lb. tongue rate but still fine carrying our 2 bikes weighing around 30 lbs. each. Would want to purchase an anti sway bolt/lock for the extension to the hitch and for the rack to the extension ($25.95 + $28.80).

    2. Raxter Tarsus EL Hitch Mount Car Bike Rack $379.99 ($40 shipping). No hitch extension needed. Holds 2 bikes with the ability to add a 2 rack addition if I wanted. 43 lbs. Would need only 1 anti sway bolt/lock ($25.95). Holds bike only by the tires, no frame contact. Has an auto nesting feature which allows the bikes the ability to shift forward and rearward of each other to eliminate contact/tangle.

    Basically, the Raxter rack would be around $446 and the Swagman would wind up being around $280. What do you folks think?
