Hitch racks are one of the most efficient and safest ways to transport your bike from one place to the other. There are several types of hitch racks, but one of the best types of hitch racks support the wheels and have no contact with the frame. The RockyMounts WestSlope 2 Bike Hitch Rack is a budget-friendly rack that can carry up to 2 bikes. The frame body of the WestSlope is sloped to create a tiered mounting arrangement that eliminates handlebar interference between the two bikes. The wheel hook is soft and the ratcheted swingarm provides a secure fit with no frame contact. It has a carrying capacity of 80 pounds, or 40 pounds each, and it can carry tires up to 3.0" wide and diameters ranging from 20" to 29". It will fit wheelbases from 34" to 48" and the rack folds flat against the vehicle and tilts down 30° so you can access your hatch easier. The rack will fit both 1.25" and 2" hitches with an adaptor sleeve and anti-wobble bolt.
Note: This rack will not work with fender equipped bikes.

A decently built rack that was easy to install. After reading some initial reviews I felt like this was a bargain, especially at the introductory price. However, a few things about this rack have left a sour taste in my mouth. First, after sitting out in one day of heavy rain, this rack began to rust. A review on bikerumor (https://bikerumor.com/2019/03/19/rocky-mounts-westslope-hitch-mount-rack-carries-bikes-high-w-compact-size/) had mentioned this problem, and that Rockymounts was taking steps to make sure this didn't happen to other racks. It looks like they didn't. Check my photos. Another annoying thing about this rack is that you have to find your own straps to secure the arms against the rack when it is flipped up and not in use, otherwise they slap the back of your car whenever you hit the brakes.
In summary, don't buy this rack even if you are on a budget, spend $50-100 more and buy a nicer one, it'll be worth it.
Purchased this for local transport. Assembly was straight forward and the rack is easily mounted on the vehicle. We have MTB and all road bikes and both types are easily loaded and held securely in the rack. The bike in the photo below has a 45” wheelbase for reference.
