    Thule T2. Hands down the best rack I have used.

    I just install the 2" 3 bikes version a week ago. It hold my 26" and my son 24" very securely on the highway. It's also one of the best looking rack I can find. Do spare another $20 for a hitch lock.

    Sorry About not getting the pics up for my hitch install on my xA

    I just got the the Thule Ridgeline and it is awesome. It is easy to use and the rack is locked to the hitch, while the bikes get locked to the Rack with a built in cable lock.

    Thule Roadway is pretty much the same thing without a lot of the nice accessories. Just a little cheaper.

    Did you get the Curt hitch? I love how it looks on my xA.

    Yakima Hold Up. It folds in and up nice and small, and the dark gray color really looks good. No problems and concerns for it either.

    I got my hitch from u-haul but I installed it myself. They can do it for I think $30 or so. Muffler shops can do it too. Most of the time it is a simple bolt on. Just call around to muffler shops and find your local u-haul or truck accessory shop and they can get you set up.

    Scion Xa is simply a bolt on deal.

    I just got done a 300 mile road trip with the Thule Ridgeline. I love the rack.

    I'd vote for the Swagman XC. It is similar to the Thule at a much lower price point.

    Ditto for the Yakima Holdup - fabulous new design that's simple, compact, fast, light, and zero adjustment. See my review.

    I got my hitch from eTrailer.com and installed it myself. It may take an hour or two to bolt it on, but the instructions are very clear.
    It's not slow, it's doing more MTB time.
