    Tray style hitch racks that do not touch the frame - question

    Just a quick question about these types of racks.



    Is it necessary to have the arm over the front tire, or can the bike be the opposite way, with the arm over the rear tire? Everyone I see has it over the front. Does it matter?

    According to the instructions it does matter. Why I'm not sure, maybe the rear derailleur interferes with the wheel tray.

    I'm sure someone more experienced will chime in.

    Yep, according to the manual for mine, it says to put the front wheel where the wheel hook is. I tried it in my driveway backwards, and the bike seemed just as stable as the correct way. I was just wondering if it mattered or not?
