Since purchasing my two Aventon Levels I knew I would need a hitch mounted carrier sooner or later. With very kind input, pics, and measurements from one of our EBR board members (Man Without Shadow), I ordered this $115.00 carrier from Walmart. My expectations are wildly exceeded and I am impressed. This carrier is rated at 200lb capacity and will secure my Level Step Thru models easily. It appears to be powder coated, double reinforced (where needed) steel. Assembly time was 1 hour. It is lightweight, secure, and collapsable for easy in vehicle storage. You can quickly load and off-load two bikes in less than five minutes. It tilts so you can access the trunk. Heavy duty carriage bolts and pins. The Walmart rack goes in and out of stock quickly, but it is available from other vendors too. YMMV.
