Also it's difficult to load 4 bikes trying to figure out where all the pedals should go where they don't hit the bikes. Sometimes, I'll load a bike and a pedal hits a frame.

Clarification: I have a 4 bike rack where you have to hang the bikes by the top tube. I'm sure a TRAY rack would be much easier and secure.
