It sounds like you're looking for something similar to the Curt 4 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount - Tilting # C18087, which can be used as both a 2 bike rack and a 4 bike rack as long as you've got a 2" hitch receiver on your vehicle. In order to carry any bikes with aggressive step throughs or kids bikes, you would need to use a bike adapter bar like the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005.

This Curt rack also tilts away from the rear of your vehicle to allow access to the cargo area, even with the bikes loaded, which is a great feature when taking the family out for a ride. This rack comes with locks for the bikes, and an anti-rattle hitch pin.

I've linked a review video of this rack, but if your vehicle has a 1-1/4" hitch, please let me know and I can work to find you an alternate solution to this.
