"Yep.  There's no greater irony than to be cut off or sworn at by someone driving a big SUV with a bike rack on the back, loaded with high-end bicycles.  Avid cyclist, indeed!"

Saris trailer hitch mount bicycle carrier

This is the older style Saris bike rack that mounts into a Reese-type trailer hitch.  The hitch size is 1.25 inch.  The bike carriers are loosened with a hex key wrench and fold down when not in use.  Includes a hitch pin that may be locked into place.  This hitch is heavy, too heavy to ship.  Looking for a buyer someplace in the Chicagoland metro area for delivery.Something like $40-$50 might be a fair price, depending on buyers examination.See More
