Seeking suggestions for bike bags

We’re looking for a bike carrier for 2 e-bikes. Our vehicles has a 2” hitch. Both bikes weight 60# each. One is a step through frame the other is standard frame. What carrier would you recommend?
@KindredSpirit Thanks for reaching out!
We have a couple of hitch mounted bike racks that are rated to carry bikes that weigh up to 60 pounds:
All three of these options come with integrated locks, tilt away when loaded to give access to the rear of your vehicle, and secure your bikes without contacting the frame. The Kuat rack comes with a built in repair stand feature for working on your bike at the trailhead. Both the Thule and the Kuat racks are fairly heavy, at 52 pounds, while the Saris weigh in at 35 pounds.
Hope this helps! Feel free to let us know if you have any other questions!
We've got the 4-bike version of the Saris that John mentioned, it's quite nice can't go wrong with choosing that one, we love it! I'm sure the others are quite lovely too.
