Any feedback? Sick of loading and unloading my canal bike. I need a universal one as I’ll be getting a new vehicle sometime in the next year or so. 
 

this for one of those three speed women’s touring bikes. Townie brand.

Just bought one from Dicks, holds 2 bikes goes in trailer hitch no complaints

I have a really nice one that goes in the hitch from my last truck. It was like $500. Things really nice.  Think it’s four bikes.

Hitches are bolted on. Remove it when you junk the car.

 

is this a sedan, with a trunk?

 

I had one of those nylon strap with the foam rubber type jobs. Worked fine, short money.

I bought a Yakima spare tire mounted bike rack for my jeep in 2011 for about $180, it held 2 bikes and worked great.. It was sturdy and well built, had a built in cable lock, folded down to the spare tire when not in use, didn't obscure vision when backing up.... A part fell off while I was driving back in February, one of the arms that held the bikes (no bike on it when it fell off)  ...I checked the Yakima website for a replacement but no luck so I shot an email to customer service... they replied that it had a lifetime warrantee....  the model was discontinued so they shipped me the latest version which is ~$400.  not sure if anything they make suits what you're looking for but customer service like that is amazing.

That’s basically what I’m looking at. A little beefier for around $80.
