Self loading bike rack?

Hi - I came across a self loading, hitch mounted vertical rack. It seems like a better option for my recumbent trike and family bikes than buying a trailer. It's from Bike eRack in Canada. Anyone have one?

At US$2500+ you should be able to afford a real ad.

And use something more substantial than two bungie cords to secure your bike to the rack.

That's the Self-Loathing bike rack.

It looks heavy. So if you plan to take the rack on and off the vehicle, then consider how you will deal with it's weight. Otherwise, in typical BF fashion, I don't meet the criteria of your question but am adding my 2! <grin>

Anyone have one?

You need an electric hoist. Problem solved!
