Yakima HoldUp Hitch Mount Bike Rack (Black) (2 Bikes) (2" Receiver)
After trying my bikes on a friends HoldUp, I liked the fit w/ my bikes & bought one.
Upon closer scrutiny, I have these 3 comments for the unsupervised "fresh outta college" kids that designed it:

1. Put the red release button on the outside of the arm where it will never touch the frame (thereby releasing) any bike in transit it's trying to hold.
2. Don't bother including a 6" long wrench of stamped 3/16" steel to tighten the hitch bolt to 100 ft.lbs. If you were paying attention in class this means 200 lbs of force to fully tighten the hitch bolt and if one is that strong the wrenches ergonomic wrench design will crease your hand from 2000 psi contact pressure.
3. Adding a bottle opener does not make up for 1 & 2.

Overall I am pretty happy with the Yakima Holdup bike rack. Loading bikes for a ride has never been easier! I also like that it folds up and out of the way. As a bonus, I can still open the hatch of my Prius with the rack up in the stowed position. :) It's a bit heavy, which you'll notice when you first install it, but I feel that my bikes are more secure compared to other racks. I also wanted to avoid the less expensive racks that suspend the bikes from their frames. The locking pin that secures the rack is attached by a plastic press-fit anchor. The plastic anchor is junk and easily falls out when the "ears" wear out. I secured the locking pin with a simple 15mm screw and locking nut. If you can swing the price you'll be happy you did with the Yakima Holdup.
