No, I haven't. I don't ride that bike very often and the brakes on it now are ok. Though, I did think about doing this a couple of weeks ago. One of these days I will give it a try.

Check out the Thule Raceway Platform. I didn't check to see if it will work with your car or not. But it holds the bikes up by the wheels. Oops, you said you want a hitch. There are quite a few out...

The broken plastic piece is still very common today on those old cantilevers. We used to replace them all the time. It's one of the first things I check when a bike with those come in. Now, we just...
