What's the weight of that work of art?
Haven't weighed it, but it should be about 28, and that's being pretty conservative, even still it doesn't seem excessively light.

Where did your bike hitch?
This I do not understand. Is it where did I get my reciever/hitch? Subaru OEM, had em put it on. The OEM is by far the best because it has a neat cut-out for the exhaust, and allows a few after-market exhausts without having to go to rediculously long hangers that may cause you to scrape the exhaust. The OEM also is positioned just right, and I've never scraped the thule T2. Some of the "hidden hitch" recievers are terrible because they are too low and too far from the bumper, and they easily cause the scraping. The OEM is also very "out of the way" and doesn't protrude much, it's difficult to tell it's there from most any angle.
