First-time Bike Rack Buyer...Raxter?
Just purchased a new bike and decided that it is finally time to buy a proper bike rack.
I am looking for a hitch-mounted, 1.25" compatible "platform-style" rack. I would prefer to stay away from the type of racks that hold the bicycle by its top tube. The rack will be going on my 2011 Prius.
Since I am just getting back into cycling, I am not sure what my needs are just yet. So, I would like to be prepared in terms of bike capacity, but I would not like to overboard either.
So far, I am seriously considering a Raxter Thorax 1.25" rack since it can hold 3 bikes. I can also get a fairly good price for it, which helps tremendously:
