airmech, not sure if yours is missing but, from what I've read, there should be a sticker warning that any mod, like your bike rack/hitch, may void the frame's warranty.
Putting such a setup on an ultralight frame bumper is an accident waiting to happen.
If you don't believe me, do a search on it, at any RV forum and you'll find lots of warnings and pics of such bumper failures.
The only way to safely do this, is to have a receiver welded and braced to the frame and bumper.
But this will void the frame warranty unless it has already expired.
As an avid cyclist, my bikes are too valuable to put somewhere I can't see them.
Especially on a weak and poorly welded ultralight bumper.
