I have had my '05 2,5i Limited for about two weeks now and am in the market for a hitch mounted bike carrier. Does anyone have any opinions? This would be for moderate use at most and I only need capacity for two bikes. How is the one offered by Subaru (is it made by someone like Thule) have also looked at and am leaning toward the BVG Evolution XE. I am looking for ease of use (my wife will be using it a lot by herself that is why hitch mount is necessary she is only 5'1" on a good day and putting bikes on the roof is a near impossibility without major vehicle damage). I also want something that folds so the hatch is still usable with it on. Any opinions on the Yakima or the Thule. Want to keep the price under $200. TIA for the info

I purchased a Thule hitch-mount bike rack from Sears for around $130. i love it, and it folds down partially to allow the hatch to open. Takes about 10 minutes to assemble, and works great!
