Putting a hitch on my 2009 focus.

I wasn't sure where to post this at, but I figured someone would be able to help in this forum. I want to have a hitch installed on my car so I can lug my mountain bike around. I don't want to carry around a whole lot of weight on my car, since the focus obviously wasn't made to do so. I guess my main question is, with a class I hitch, what is a safe amount of weight to carry? The bike racks usually weight around 30lbs, and my mountain bike weights about 26-27. I just don't want to put to much stress on my car.

Thanks in advance.
