Hello. didn't know which forum to put this under so I thought that I would post it in a couple forums. I currently have a bike carrier that is fairly adjustable to allow for odd sized frame tubes. The problem is that our bikes keep getting scrapped up, even gouged. There must be a better bike rack. I am looking to buy a 4 bike hauler, and am considering a platform type, hitch mounted. Will this be the best choice to keep the bikes apart? I've been taking pedals off as necessary, but then kick stands get in the way. So then I took a pool noodle, cut it into various lengths, hollowed them out and then attach them to the areas that are or might contact the adjacent frame. Then I try to tie the bikes together so that they move less. This has worked pretty well, but it takes 30 minutes to load 3 bikes! Any suggestions?
