Helpful Expert Reply:

Between the two bike racks you mentioned the Yakima Ridgeback part # Y02458 is what I recommend. It has easier to use tilt mechanisms, easier to load frame cradles with more cushioning and in our experience is more stable in the hitch of the vehicle.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.

I attached test course and review videos for both racks for you to check out as well.
