Bike Rack

I'm looking for Hitch-mounted bike rack for my pickup truck. Would also like it to have ability swing out so I can access truck bed without having to unload bikes.

Recommendations?

TIA!

Stu

I think you are saying you have a pickup truck and want a receiver hitch bike rack that can swing out to the side allowing you to open the tail gate of the truck while the bikes are still on the rack. Likely a hanging style rack.

There are lots of good receiver hitch racks out there by Yakima, Thule, Saris and other brands. I have occasionally seen one that had the ability to swing out to the side, but those are rare.

If nobody responds, you could check out the product lines by the companies I cited above.

Your summary of my need is correct. I'll check those brands.

Thanks!

I almost bought one at an REI garage sale this winter for my 4runner. They are pricey but this one was slightly used, more than 1/2 off in mint condition. So I decided to go for it but the thing weighed a ton, I couldn't believe it. I put it back, way too heavy. I want a good one but not at that weight. It would have been a hassle to put on and take off, so I left it for another. I don't like a rack on my car 24/7, 365.
