Hello all NSMBers,
I've had a roof rack (Yakima High rollers) for a couple years now, however after moving into a place with underground parking, it's become a huge annoyance having to take bikes off before going in the parkade. It's time to look at a hitch rack.
I've got a Mazda 3 hatch, and we have a dog that resides in the back, so we need quick access to the hatch so the pooch can get in and out with the bikes ON the car.
Has anyone got experience with these racks and how easily they tilt down with bikes loaded for access to the tailgate?

It would be nice to have the same key system as the Yakima roof racks we've got, however ease of tilt will likely be the biggest deciding factor.
BTW- North Shore Bike Rack is out because we've got road bikes we want to carry sometimes as well.
