I need to find a good 2 inch hitch bike rack for my Dual Suspension Mountain Bike & Hard Tail bike. I want to have two bikes or more loaded up but mainly only two.

I'm seeking something that is under $250.00

Also something that will be very rugged and safe for my frames.

Sunlite has the best "cheap" hitch racks. They have the features of the more expensive brands without the name. (SunLite is the house brand for J&B Importers - one of the largest bike parts distributors in the US)

I have the 4 bike version of this rack purchased through walmart.com:

Allen Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack, 522RR Deluxe 2-Bike, 1 1/4" - 2" - Walmart.com

I have a friend that has used it for two years to carry his Cannondale CAAD-9. I've used one for months to carry my Motobecane Fantom 29 mtb, and over spring break I loaded my 29er and my wife's Jamis Boss Cruiser on there and we went on a road trip that took us about 150 miles from home and back, so we could ride our bikes on Sanibel Island.

I'm getting rid of my two bike Saris trunk rack after only one month. I get very nervous traveling anywhere with this assembly. I'm going with a Swagman bike rail rack. A little costly for the hitch and installation, but worth it in the long run. Bikes just stand right up. I would never recommend a trunk mount for 2 bikes.
