Hey there @TheYuens!

I see that one of our users @OldGuyot was able to answer the first part of your question.  Removal is not a difficult task with hitch racks!  To answer the second part of the question, i'll link you to a previous conversation where @REI-JohnJ gave some great advice on hitch carriers for heavier bikes.

You might also take a look at the Yakima Ridgeback hitch rack or the Thule Helium Pro hitch rack.  I like the Helium bike rack because as its name suggests, it is very lightweight!

Before you settle on a rack, be sure to know what size hitch receiver you have.  Some racks are offered in 1.25" or 2".  However, some racks are only available in one or the other.

Hope this information helps!
