    Choosing a hitch mounted bike rack for 4 bikes

    I'd like to purchase a hitch mounted bike rack that can hold 4 bikes. I'd like to be in the $250 and under range as my maximum (assuming something is to be gained by spending that much) and there are a variety of options. Thule, Yakima, Saris, Allen to name a few. Most of them seem pretty similar in overall features and functionality.

    Reading some reviews, I've seen people comment about the quality of the cushions that rest against the frame and locking pins (primarily for rack that fold down and out of the way.

    I'm having a hard time figuring out what's really the best way to go, so I was hoping folks here could help me narrow down or point me to a particular offering that is better than all the others.

    I bot a used hitch bike mount for 4 in brand new condition with the keys, locks and all extra accessories for $100 off CL. It was a Bauer, and it swings out. I see plenty of good deals out there on CL. Good luck!

    +1 on looking at your local CL. Bike racks come up for sale often and you can maximize your money.
