Question Bike rack

Recently bought and installed a hitch/towbar on my wife's car... now done that I thought it would be a good addition to get a bike rack to place on it since we might take some weekends off without rv, they got several models/brands... i need one for 2 ATB's which brands/types are good? www.hitchanything.com/Hitch-Bike-Rack/

i bought a mopar acessory one off of craigslist. Doesn't have a stupid cinch strap style so you know your bikes are safe. it has a metal plate that sandwiches the cross bar with some foam padding.

It also has a slot going through it, so when I get home I can make a lock for it (doens't make a difference if you don't have a hitch lock though!)

This is a good picture of what they look like, but they can be found for much cheaper than that. (mine was $40 from CL)

I have a Reese 4-place carrier that sounds awfully similar to the Mopar on described above.

Can put a ball on it and tow a small (1500 lb IIRC) trailer with it even. It's beefy.

If you find one on CL or somewhere, it's a good - if overbuilt - piece.
This is the Pub. Leave common sense at the door.
