I have the fork-mounted rack on our 9-5 SC, and a trunk-mounted rack on our 9-3 Vert. The SC's setup is by far the most secure and easiest to use, especially with my carbon road bike. The steel mountain bike is considerably heavier, but with both having the front wheel off is quicker. As I only have a 20 mile drive to the nearest off-road paved trail the front wheel goes in the back with the rear seats down, again much easier than fussing with the separate wheel-mount rack on the roof. The much heavier tow-mouned hitch stays in the garage gathering dust.
