I think they work fine for race BMX bikes - I see several North Shore racks in the parking lot of the track, anyhow. The 4 bike platform is good for now - my wife won't race, so it's just my bike and one each for my two boys. If we all started running cruisers as well we'd have a problem.

And definitely no issue with 5 or 6 bikes from a class III or IV hitch.
