When it comes to traditional bike racks, there's always a trade-off between ease and access. Roof-mount racks don't block your trunk, but they can agitate your hernia every time you hoist your bike skyward. On the other hand, hitch-mounted bike racks are gentle on your back, but they block your rear cargo area. Luckily, the Advantage SportsRack glideAWAY2 Deluxe 4-Bike Rack is anything but traditional, giving you both sweat-free loading and unobstructed access to your cargo area.
The idea behind the Advantage SportsRack glideAWAY2 Deluxe 4-Bike Rack is simple yet elegant. It mounts right in your 1.25" or 2" hitch, and its accordion-style base pulls up to 23" away from your bumper so you can reach your gear in the back. More than just convenient, its protective cradles and lengthy saddle straps hold your Huffy stable while you drive and protect its finish.
Unlike flimsy plastic bike racks, the Advantage SportsRack glideAWAY2 is constructed from sturdy steel and finished with a black powder coating to fight off rust, corrosion and the rest of Mother Nature's minions. And, it's backed by a 2-year warranty.

I like the rack, now that I have it assembled. The pull out arm is a great feature and my kids' 20"/24" bikes fit. The directions, however, left a little to be desired-- no inventory list with pictures and one dark picture for the entire assembly process. For those not tool, nut and bolt savvy, the written directions were like reading Greek. I was sold by AutoAnything a special lock specifically for this rack --which did not in fact fit the SportsRack. Rack gets a 4, service a 1.
