A hitch rack would not be recommended here. • Consider whether or not the vehicle with which youll be transporting your bike is leased or owned outright by you. In case any damage occurs which hopefully will not if you choose the right rack you will be responsible for the repair costs on a leased vehicle. Score another point for hitch mounted. • Realistically determine whether or not you can lift your bicycle with one hand and how high you can lift it by yourself. Hitch mounted bike racks are easiest.
