    I'm looking at some of the dedicated bike carriers and the ones that appeal to me are those that
    support the bike by providing a slot for the tires to rest

    But that brings to mind any one of dozens of hitch-mounted basket-type carriers that are used by
    fishermen, campers, and such. One of those, some sort of insert with a tire-width channel to
    stabilize the wheels, a couple of bungees to hold the bikes down.... Also it would seem to have the
    additional benefit of providing a few inches of crumple zone before the bike becomes a
    thousand-dollar bumper shield.

    Anybody tried it?
