I need a bike rack that holds 4 bikes. One that goes into a trailer hitch. Whats a good one to get? I bought one by Bell and Im taking it back as its small and almost crushes the gears with all 4 bikes on it, plus it has velcro straps that hold the bikes on. Anything out there thats stronger than that? and a bit bigger?

Personally, I prefer Thule, but here is a good point to look for comparisons

My personal preferences are Saris (http://www.saris.com/c-16-.aspx), Thule (http://http://www.thuleracks.com/thule/carrier_bike2.asp?location=3), or Yakima (http://www.yakima.com/ProductCategory.aspx?id=7). They are all pricey, but you get a good solid product with a company that will stand behind them. I have used all of them at one time or another. Current rack on my vehicle is the Saris, current rack on wife's is a Yakima. There may be suitable "offbrand" racks out there but you waste your time trying to track them down and then if you need warranty service on them...
