Ordered the Curt (~$150 delivered). We plan to use it for a Bike Rack (1UP, USA) and later may add an extender for a second bike. No wiring or ball will be needed or used by us. Should be delivered this afternoon. I don't ride bikes anymore; however, my wife and son do. We have a 2013 Outback with the full hitch, so if we ever need to tow, we will use that.
