    New Bike Racks

    Just bought a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen. Looking into bike racks for this vehicle. I want to stay away from roof racks (I'm sure I'd be that person in the insurance commercial who drives into the garage with the bikes on the roof). I'm more inclined to have a hitch added to the car and go with a hitch rack.

    Can anyone give me some thoughts on which 2-bike hitch racks are really good and which to stay away from? Would like something that is really secure for highway trips, but is still easy to get the bike on and secured.

    Thanks for your input!

    Dana

    Are you looking for a platform or regular rack (one that hangs the bike)? You can't go wrong with brands like Thule, Yakima, Kuat, Saris and Inno.

    The Yakima Double Down Ace is a popular and dependable rack that works well.
