Brother-in-law has a Yakima Stage 2 as the wheelbase on his Giga is enormous.
Great bike rack but a touch unwieldy as you said

That looked pretty nifty until i saw its 30kgs... Jesus :oops:

My cheapie even with my german ball clamping contraption is half that. Takes my 1220mm wheelbase Orange with ease and would take something at least 100 longer.

The ST rack has a very thin hitch pin that was supplied with it, also the stabiliser acts as security as it needs to be fully loosened to remove it.
I think I've mentioned it before, but its a half inch pin as opposed to the ⅝" that come with most tow hitches. Mitch (I assume) said he just bought a locking one off ebay

If I get the 'some thieving cnut' feeling, I back my car against something and stealing the rack without stealing the car would be a miracle.

My ISI is 2013, was one of the early ones.

Nearly 10yrs old and was $500 back then, the replacement for my ST would be $2000 buckos, though I only paid $1200 back in 2019. Still don't want to lose it to some meth chunt.

Sorry, got computer issues. Turned it on tonight to find it had downloaded a Windows Security update and gave me the dreaded Blue Screen Of Death.
Currently updating all drivers, Bios and deleting the update :rolleyes:

There was no method to my measurements, the steel box section were offcuts and took me about 30mins to knock up.

105cm wide and 125cm long.
