I bought a Thule 916XTR T2 platform hitch rack. The big advantages are that this Thule rack has built-in locks, is a breeze to use, can carry any bike including dual suspension mountain bikes, does not scratch the bike and looks really cool. The downside is that it costs about $400! www.thule.com/en-US/US/Products/Bike-Carri
What sold me on this rack was that it could carry bikes with large diameter wheel and swoopy frames. I can also remove any bike in any order. This rack can be expanded to hold 4 bikes.
We got my daughter a Swagman hanging rack that was self locking. www.swagman.net/products/single-arm-xp-rac
We paid about $80 for this rack. She has a bike that can hang from a rack. The disadvantage of this rack is that it takes some time to screw the knobs down. This rack works well for certain bike.
I hope you can find something that works for you. Thule and Yakima make really good bike racks.
