Hitch Rack Questions

I just bought a Thule Hitching Post 2-bike rack and I have a couple of questions:

1. Is there any danger of using this rack, with its rubber attachment straps, on a Carbon Fiber frame?
2. Do users of this rack remove when not in use? They stick out in back a lot.

Thanks!

I see no reason you cant use the rubber straps on a carbon frame.

If you dont like they way it looks...remove it. I do.

If you are talking about the Thule T2, the bike is attached to the rack by the wheels. An arm goes over the front wheel and the rubber strap holds the rear in. the holder. I fold mine when not it use and remove it so it is not out overnite.
