Sport Rider SE2 R Hitch Bike Rack

Give your bikes the royal treatment by transporting them on the Sport Rider Special Edition platform-style hitch bike rack. This feature-packed rack allows you to carry one or two recumbent bicycles on the rear of your vehicle. The rack has extra-long arms to hold recumbents with wheelbases up to 74 inches long and wheel hoop adapters to accommodate the smaller front wheels on recumbents.

Anti-Wobble Handle

1450R SE2 Anti-Wobble

An integrated anti-wobble handle on the front of the carrier tightens the bike-rack shank to your hitch receiver to prevent the rack from rattling around inside the receiver. You don't need to pull out a wrench every time you install the rack on your hitch - just turn the easy-to-access handle to keep the rack from rattling.

Precision-Slide Clamping System

1450R SE2 Hooks

Constructed of rugged steel with a sleek black powder coat finish, the Sport Rider SE2 uses cushioned hooks to stabilize your bikes. The precision-slide clamping system allows the hooks to slide up and down the rack's upright mast. Just squeeze together the push-to-release levers on one of the hooks, slide the hook to the desired position, and release the levers. The hook secures in place and cannot move until the levers are depressed again. The hooks are different sizes and each one functions independently, meaning the rack can carry two bikes of the same or different heights.

Adjustable Wheel Holders

1450R SE2 Wheel Holders

The wheel holders accommodate bicycles with wheelbases up to 74 inches, and you can adjust the wheel hoops by sliding them along the horizontal arms. They are secured in place with hand knobs. Velcro-like hook-and-loop straps secure your bike's wheels to the holders.

The included pair of wheel hoop adapters easily attaches to the wheel holders to accommodate the front wheels of recumbent bikes or 1 kid's bike with 16-inch or 18-inch wheels.

Folding, Tilting Design

1450R SE2 Folded/Tilted

The Sport Rider's tilting design makes it easier to access your vehicle's rear cargo area and to load your bikes. The rack folds up against the back of your vehicle when it's not in use. And the arms fold up for compact storage.

Security System

1450R SE2 Hitch and Cable Locks

The Sport Rider SE2 includes a hitch lock that secures the bike carrier to your vehicle's 2-inch receiver. The rack also comes with an 8-foot-long, vinyl-coated, braided steel cable lock that deters theft of your bikes.

Both the cable lock and the hitch lock have push-to-lock bodies and are conveniently keyed alike. Keyhole covers on the locks keep out dirt and moisture.

Add-On Adapters

The Sport Rider SE2 is expandable and adaptable. If you want to carry two standard bikes in addition to your recumbents, a two-bike add-on accessory (HR1475 - sold separately) is available.

If you want to transport one recumbent delta trike or one recumbent tadpole-style trike with the Sport Rider SE2, you can use the HRTRK-ADP adapter (sold separately). Or if you want to transport one standard recumbent bike and either one recumbent delta trike, one recumbent tadpole-style trike, or one adult trike, then you can use the HRTRK-ADP-2 adapter (sold separately).

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry a Recumbent Bike and a Regular Bike on a 2000 Honda Accord
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack, # HR1450R, can carry one recumbent bike and one regular road bike at the same time without the need of an adapter. The only time you would need to add an adapter to this bike rack is to carry a trike. We may have a bike rack that will carry your recumbent bike and regular bike at the same time, but the Hollywood Racks SE2 bike rack is only designed to work with 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. The receiver on your trailer hitch is 1-1/4 inches an

  • Recommendations for a 2-Recumbent Bike Carrier For a Rans and a Bacchetta Sprada
  • For your Bacchetta Strada and Rans recumbent bikes, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sports Rider SE2 Bike Rack # HR1450R. It is a platform-style hitch-mounted bike rack that is made with recumbent bikes in mind. I did some research on your bikes and have found both will fit well within the maximum wheelbase dimensions (74 inches) as well as the maximum weight capacity (45 lbs/bike). This rack can also be folded up when not in use and can be tilted away from the vehicle for easier loading of

  • Comparing the Hollywood Racks SE2 and Sport Rider 2 Bike Racks for a 2011 Subaru Outback
  • The main advantage that the Hollywood Racks SE2 Bike Rack, # HR1450R, has over the Sport Rider 2 Bike Rack, # HR1000R, is its folding capabilities. The SE2 rack can fold up toward the vehicle when you are not carrying any bikes so you do not have the entire extension of a bike rack sticking out from your vehicle. It also has the ability to tilt away from your vehicle giving you additional room to access the rear cargo area. The Sport Rider 2 bike rack also folds up, but the extension from th

  • 2010 Honda CRV Bike Rack Options for a Rans Fusion Crank Forward Bike that Allows Rear Cargo Access
  • According to my research your Rans Fusion Crank forward bike can have an extended wheelbase and can be quite variable. So my recommendation for a hitch mounted bike rack that can adjust for the required wheelbase for your bike and tilt away from your vehicle allowing you access to the rear cargo area of your vehicle is the Hollywood Racks # HR1450R. This bike rack has adjustable wheel holders, and you can use wheel adapters like the # HRSW-ADP-2 if needed to accommodate your specific bike. I

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Recumbent Trike and Regular Bike
  • When used with the Trike Adapter, part # HRTRK-ADP-2, the Hollywood Racks SportRider SE2 Bike Rack you mentioned, part # HR1450R could indeed be used to carry your recumbent trike and one additional bike. The SE2 is capable of tilting rearward as shown in the provided photo, which would lower the lifting height and might be helpful in loading the trike.

  • RV-Mount 2-Bike Carrier Suitable for Use with Recumbent Bikes with 54-Inch Wheelbase
  • Motor homes require specially-designed bike racks that can handle the extreme forces found at the rear of such vehicles. Much in the same way that the last car in a roller coaster gets a much rougher ride than the first car, anything mounted at the rear of an RV will be subjected to forces that would damage a bike rack made for use on automobiles. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2-Bike Carrier for Recumbent Bikes that you referenced, part # HR1450R, is suited to your bikes dimensions, how

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 4 Recumbent Bikes
  • If you use a platform style rack such as the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450R, with extension # HR1475, you should not have problems loading the 4 recumbent bikes despite having wide seats. The bikes will alternate directions and you can move the wheel cradles left and right to compensate for any interference between the bikes, if there happens to be any. I would place the bikes with the wider seats in the first and last bike positions to minimize the potential of interference. T

  • Hitch-Mount 2-Bike Platform Carrier for Gold Rush Replica Easy Racer Recumbent Bike
  • The long version of the Gold Rush Replica Easy Racer is indeed a substantial 69-inch wheelbase bike, with a weight (not shown on their website for this version) of somewhere in the 30-40-lb weight range. (The medium length version weighs 27-lbs assembled.) We do offer a number of specialized 2-inch hitch-mount platform-style bike racks designed expressly for recumbent bikes like your Easy Racer.
