I have a solution for you, but the Yakima HangOver # Y02484 is designed only for bikes with suspension forks. Since you'll be carrying a couple different types of bikes, I recommend using a platform rack like the Swagman Semi 4.0 # S64698-99, which will allow you to carry both adults bikes and kids bikes. Additionally, since it holds the bikes by the wheels, you won't need an adapter bar for the kids bikes and it will protect any carbon frame mountain bikes from getting scratches on the frames. Platform racks are also especially easy to load, so it really is a great solution and what a lot of customers prefer to use when possible. The Semi 4.0 fits in 2" hitch receivers, the same as the HangOver does, so as long as your vehicle has a 2" hitch receiver it's a great choice.

I've linked a review video of the Semi 4.0 for you to have a look at, as well.
