Hitch Bike Racks and Women's frame bikes... Looking for help/advice
So, I ordered a (2") hitch for my car, and wanted a tray/platform style rack. So I bought a Yakima Holdup and I was pretty excited about it, until I realized that it won't work with our bikes (Trek Allant & Electra Ticino) because we have fenders:
So, I was thinking, well... I guess I'll go exchange it for the Yakima Stickup:
But then I read that these don't work for women's frames bikes. And installing the Yakima TubeTop adapter piece won't work, because apparently the downward force releases the mechanism.
I was trying to stay away from the hanging rack systems, because it doesn't seem as though the TubeTop adapter would be able to hold up the bike correctly.
Here is the bike in question:
Anyway, if anyone has any advice, I would be really appreciative.
