Swagman XC2 Wheel Mount Bike Rack Review

Video Transcript for Swagman XC2 Wheel Mount Bike Rack Review

Today we are going to be showing you part number S64650, the XC2 Bike Rack from Swagman. It has easy loading, with up to two bikes carrying capacity. It has a new, push-button ratchet arm that easily adjusts to secure your bikes. The ratchet arms have a soft, frame-friendly coating to protect the bikes finish. And it easily adjusts to different bike frame sizes with a simple movement of the wheel holders. The XC carries a wide variety of bike frames without the hassle of removing wheels. And the rack folds up for easy storage or when not in use on the vehicle. This can be used for both 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch applications. Right now, you see it on the 1-1/4 inch version. Now, to make it a 2-inch, you have to put these pieces on. They fit on like so, and then you just simply put this bolt through. Now, it does not come with this, so you are going to have to have the right Allen key to tighten this down. Now it is ready for 2-inch applications.

OK, as you can see, we have it installed onto an average 1-1/4 inch receiver, and this one would be a Class I receiver. Next, we are going to show you how this tightens up to the hitch. And it uses an anti-rattle bolt, which bolts into the side. Now, this does not come with a tool to tighten it, so you are going to need a wrench or a socket to tighten it down. The next feature we are going to show off on this rack is how the arms fold. You see these three pins here: To control each arm, you pull the pin out and the arm moves. With the center arm here, this one also has a pin. You pull out the pin once again, this makes it easier to get to the bikes. Our next feature is going to be the wheel wells themselves. You will notice that the wheel wells have these turn knobs here. That is what makes these wheel wells able to move back and forth. Just loosen it up and you can move it to where you need it onto the rack and just tighten it down when you are ready. Now, to ensure that these wheel wells do not come off, when you put this together there is actually this tiny screw up here which keeps these from falling off. OK, and finally, with the center bar, we actually have the hooks that push the bikes down and lock them into place with the wheel wells. You can maneuver them by pressing it in to lift back up. And when you are ready, they lock into place like so, just simply by pushing them down.

Next we are going to go ahead and load a bike on here. Be sure the wheel wells match up and tighten them down. Then you go back to your hook and you simply push it down. Your bike is now secure and ready for travel down the road. As we stated before, this fits a wide variety of frames. We happen to use an alternative frame in this case, but I do want to stress that it does fit regular frame bikes as well. And that about does it for part number S64650, the XC2 Bike Rack from Swagman.

Order this bike rack for use on a 2014 Subaru Forester with a factory 1 1/4" trailer hitch. The rack appears to be solid and capable of holding two front suspension mountain bikes. One bike is a 15" men's bike and the other is a 19" men's bike. The rack went together easily and fit into the hitch with no problems. We ordered an anti-rattle locking hitch pin with a cable to lock the bikes and the rack to the car, but the locking hitch pin was too big to thread through the rack. etrailer sent another locking hitch pin in a very easy return process. The new one worked perfectly. We did find that when putting the bikes on the rack, we had to take off the ratchet arms and then slide them back down the center post. We used old socks on the pedals of the bikes to avoid any damage to the car or bikes, and old washcloths between the ratchet arms and the bikes as well since other people reported damage to their bikes' finishes. We also used velcro straps to secure the wheels to the wheel hoops for extra security. All in all the rack seems to be a great product. 86737

HICan you open the rear lid of your Subaru when the bikes are mounted on this XC?Also, does this vertical center console fold down?And, are there any problems with this XC?Thanx

We have sent an email to AV about your first question. We can answer the latter, and yes, the center upright mast can fold down flat on top of the tray arms. The tray arms can also fold up. You can see an illustration of this in the instructions we have linked on the page.

I own a 2005 Jeep Wrangler X with 31x10.5x15 oversized tires and wheels. I installed B6196001 HighRock 4x4 Oversize Tire Carrier by Bestop to carry larger spare tire. I needed a bike carrier that would carry our two crusier bikes and clear my spare tire. After measuring, I ordered: -> S64650 - Swagman 2-bike carrier -> 80300 - 7" Hitch Adapter 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver -> RM-061 - Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches Our order arrived very quickly, etrailer.com upgraded the shipping. All these products arrived well packaged and without damage. In 15 minutes I had every thing assembled, installed on my Jeep and bikes loaded. The bike carrier is very well constructed, finish is excellent and easy to adjust. When adjusting wheel loops and loading bikes, make sure you pay attention to bike pedal position. I chose this extension because I did not want to use the adapter that comes with the bike carrier, I wanted as few parts as possible to keep rattles to a minimum and gives me more options for towing. The anti-rattle bolt/pin firmly secures the bike carrier to the extension and the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch keeps the extension adapter from rattling in the receiver. Road tested approximately 25 miles over rough city roads ( including railroad tracks ), county roads and highway. Bikes traveled very well without any rattles. I can remove my complete setup quickly, fold and put in rear of Jeep if desired. I am very well pleased with my purchase. Note to etrailer: Please consider offering Roadmaster Quiet Hitch in black to match receiver and accessories. Paul In the Land of Oz . . . Just South of the Yellow Brick Road! 33947

Sturdy bike rack, easy to put together except for one part. The Allen bolt set screws. I made a call to the manufacturer, they asked me to send a picture of my problem. The returned my call within 30 minutes and told me to tap the shaft on the ground a couple times. This slid the steel piece inside into position, so the holes lined up for the set screws. See the attached picture. 124242

As usual, I ordered this late one night and it arrived from etrailer within less than a day of shipping. I purchased after reviewing photos and videos of the rack on the website. It's a good, solid bike rack. The bike rack is easy to assemble and attach to the car. Adjustments for bikes is easy and the rack seems stable. Probably about 1/2 inch of sway to the left and right and the same fore and aft during transport. It does seem to fit closely to the car, but pedals clear the bumper and have enough room to move without hitting the car. I would turn the bikes so that the derailleurs are outboard, but I wanted to show how much clearance the bikes have from the bumper, turning them out would give more room than shown. 106132

It would be best to switch those bikes. You always want to keep the heaviest bike closest to the vehicle.

Well constructed carrier, easy to use, and hitch tube has rise to avoid bottoming. Only problem is the rack is too close to the car for some bikes, you must have the crank closest to the car up to avoid hitting the bumper and also the trunk can hit wider handlebars when opening and closing. 90664

I have a heavy, long wheelbase curvy framed cruiser with a 3" wire rear tire, wide cranks, and huge handlebars - no other affordable racks I've seen specs for would handle my bike safely and without a high potential for damage. This one works like a charm. Even a somewhat larger bike would fit without much trouble. Placing the bike in the "outside" position is trivially easy. The "inside" position can cause some problems with my vehicle - the pedal ends up in the license plate "well" - but that's OK. Haven't made my long trip yet, but everything about this rack inspires confidence. It's easy enough to install that I won't think twice about popping it on for a quick run out to a nice riding location. 60656

The whole experience is worth 5 out of 5 Stars! Everyone I spoke with at E-Trailer was very helpful and the product that was recommended fits fine and is a good value. There is only one thing about the Swagman XC bike rack that I'm not happy with and that is the ratchet locking on the clamp down arms. The release mechanism is hard to activate so if someone with out strong hands - like my wife for example - tried to release the arms to remove the bikes they would have lots of trouble. Swagman may want to consider changing this locking mechanism to a hand wheel so strong hands aren't required for release. I'm enclosing photos of the rack installed on my 2005 Acura MDX. 56281

What a great company-what a great bike rack! I ordered my rack Saturday and it arrived Thursday. etrailer upgraded my already free shipping at no cost. Easy to assemble, easy to install, we got off of our butts and took the first of many family bike ride in the mountains. I can get my big cruiser bikes off and on in 1 minute and they are very secure while driving. No hassle, peace of mind, a high quality rack and built to last. I would recommend getting the anti-sway locking hitch pin, I am ordering one today. 50564

I really like this bike rack. Easy to assemble. East to mount on my 2004 Chevy Tracker. I also found it easy to mount my two bikes. I was concerned about clearance from the spare tire, but as you can see there is plenty of clearance. In fact the bikes don't touch anything else. I also purchased the velcro straps to secure the bike wheels to the wheel mount. 46343

The assembly instructions could have been a lot better or the photos could have been large enough to actually see them. The rack looks good and fits nicely on the back of my CRV. I was worried that my Townie wouldn't fit because of a longer wheelbase and odd frame but the rack adjusted easily to the bike. 46329

I received this rack as promised and immediately took it on a camping trip. The trip was 150 mi one-way so it got plenty of testing time. It performed flawlessly! The construction is very well thought out and well-made. I really like that it requires no additional straps...just the ratcheting hook is all that's necessary to hold the bike very secure. I put two bikes on it as the pics show. Another note...my truck has a dual rear exhaust but I had no issues with exhaust heat on the tires. This is a great product! 25734

I ordered my hitch and rack on Saturday and they arrived on th following Wednesday. I took them to a friend of mine on Sunday and with his tools and equipment within an hour we had both mounted on the van. The hitch he did 98% by himself as he didn't have a large hoist and he worked from a creeper under the car. Every thing went perfect and I would recommend ETRAILER to anyone. 20111

Installs easily, like the bolt that locks carrier to receiver to control "rocking" motion. Bikes load/unload fast and easy. However square tubing that inserts into hitch seems a bit lightwieght, allows bikes to sway back and forth during transit. Overall I am satisfied with product.14635

The instructions were a bit difficult to follow, needs to have more pictures and larger pictures where you can actually see the details. However, I sill was able to put it together in about an hour. Works great, much better than the "hanging" type of bike rack I was using before. Much easier to take the bike off and put it on. With this rack I can actually put my wifes womens bike on the rack. The hanging rack doesn't allow for the curved bars on the womans style bike.12176

Good product, however I like the rack. It is quick and easy to use. However, you cannot mount a 53cm and 58cm bike at the same time. To solve the problem you would need the long hook to be about two inches longer so it would slide down further on the ratchet bar or the notches on the ratchet bar would have to go to the top of the bar. If you turn the back wheel mounts up-side down you will gain about an inch of travel on the long hook and possibly enable the short hook to reach the notches on the ratchet bar.3377

Great Bike Rack This rack works great for vehicles with hitches - 1 1/4 or 2 ". I like that the bikes are supported from the bottom and it is quick to load or unload bikes. It is also convenient that the empty rack can be folded down for access to liftgate or trunk. The rack lock (64029) is also a nice item.3283

Nice bike rack Would have given all excellent grades however, there were a couple of small issues for me. First, the instructions are very general and could have been better detailed with instructions as to where the locking washers are to be installed for example. Second, I have a 2010 Camaro and can only fit one bicycle on the rack. There is not enough clearance for the pedals between the rear bumper and inner hoops. Perhaps there may be an extension I can purchase for the receiver bar but that may be a safety issue. All things considered for the price and the functionality the XC-2 is a great bike rack. I have used other racks and the Swagman XC-2 is the best I have ever used. Loading and unloading a bike takes about 10 seconds and the bicycle stays very well secured.3096

Well made and priced right! This is my first bike rack and after watching the video, decided to purchase. Once you get the rack set up to fit your bikes and find out which bike to load first and which direction so as to fit your vehicle, I can load both bikes in no more than a minute! No straps or bungee cords, just set them on and clamp down. We took a 200 mile trip and they never moved at all. Several of my friends have seen mine and also bought for their bikes. I couldn't be happier!!!2643

This product took about 30 minutes to assemble. I give the product 4/5 rating because I foresee issues with the oval wheel wells in the future. The wells are strong and durable but weight of the bike and the pressure of the top hook place pressure on the wheel wells and cause them to torque. Not sure how that affects the rack, but it cant be good. Overall a great product for the money.123190

This product is very sturdy and surprisingly well made and easy to assemble. The upper arms ratchet downwards to secure the bikes firmly without damaging their finish. The bikes don't shake or swing when going down the road. Its exactly what i was looking for while being 1/3rd the cost of some brand name units. While i think this has an excellent value for the price, if i had to do it over i would pay the $50 extra to get the next model (XTC-2) because that model has wheel ties a well as the upper arm for holding the bike in place. I don't expect these arms to come loose any time soon but it cannot hurt to have additional straps as a backup.111925

This carrier is a replacement for an older version of the same Swagman carrier. There are several improvements from my old unit. The new unit has higher ground clearance, the unit is bolted to the car hitch to eliminate any sway in the carrier, there are screws on the crossbars to keep the saddles on the bars should they come loose, and the ratchet hold downs have been redesigned and are easier to install. I am very pleased with this carrier. 111108

Recently bought two touring bikes and needed a way to carry them. Didn't want a "hanging" style rack and decided on this rack after reading the reviews. Seemed an excellent mid-range priced rack. While the drawings on the installation instructions are on the small side, they are nevertheless clearly understandable. An easy 30 minute job. Haven't driven down any rough roads yet and I don't expect any substantial "rattle" issues. This rack was for a Nissan Juke and the bikes are Treks. An 18 and a 16.5. The clamp on the womens 16.5 comes close to the sprocket, but I don't believe this will ever be an issue.104167

Very very good bike rack! Stable, durable, pretty light, easy to use, folding, adjustable for different types of bicycles, different types of frames, wheels, tyres and different sizes. Keeps the bikes fixed and horizontally. Safe! We have been using it since June 2013 for two bikes with problematic frame shapes (one is a 29er) It's mounted on our SUV non-stop (usually folded and it doesn't bother at all), we did very long road trips with the bikes on (like Seattle-Yellowstone and back) and once, on a very rugged off road, I even hit pretty hard the ground with the rack and nothing happened :) it's very solid.101339

So far, I've used this carrier only for short trips around my area, so I don't have any long-distance trips to report. It works great. I chose this style because I like having my bikes supported by their tires. I feel there is less chance of damaging them in transit with this method. It was very easy to assemble. I have a torn rotator cuff, and my wife weighs a lightweight 95 pounds - both of us were able to install this rack to our Kia Soul's hitch without help from the other. In other words, it's very easy to use. My plan is to use it as a 1-bike carrier primarily, so I only installed the parts for 1 bike, and I store the rest of the components under the cargo floor of my car. This way, the rack looks cleaner and weighs a bit less when we go to move it from house to car. If we rent or borrow a bike for my wife, it will take me about 5 minutes to add the rest of the equipment. (If you want to use this technique, DON'T put the stop-screws in the main rail, or you won't be able to slide the second bike supports on.)99805

I want to add that I was really impressed with etrailer.com. What excellent customer service you have - under promise and over deliver should be your motto. 94954

Great product assembly was very easy and everything fit together very well. Rack was also delivered in less than one week. After my first use I wonder why I waited so long to get rid of my clunky trunk mounted rack. Highly recommend this rack for ease of loading and unloading. The ratchet arms hold the bike securely while transporting to your favorite riding location.93141

I purchased this product based on the idea that I did not want to scratch my bikes or vehicle. So far it looks like it will do the trick. my wife & I only ride occasionally and wnted something that was functional & relatively easy to use. I think the design (tires in a holder will work fine and keep any parts from rubbing together.92729

Rack was easy to assemble and holds the bikes well. even the comfort bike fits. Only problem I had was that the 2 inch adapter was installed and the bolt holding it was really tight. If you don't have quality allen heads it could be hard to remove. This could have been an isolated instance.87648

Friends of ours have the same carrier on seeing theirs we started looking and I bought from etrailer. Product came very well packaged and protected. Very easy to put together directions were very good. Held our bikes very good, we have townys and from their shapes makes it hard to find a carrier for them but this does a very good job they are very secure. We mounted to a 2004 Pontiac Vibe.

Two bike carrier arrived very quickly (within 5 days). I am a 66 year old, single, not very mechanical woman. The bike carrier was easy to put together. It only took me about 45 min. Probably could have done it quicker but see the not very mechanical reference. The only negative I could find, the instruction picture could be bigger. It took me awhile to figure out where the washers went (they don't show up very good in the small picture, finally got a magnifying glass). Tried it out and it is sturdy, easy to load, and easy to store. I would definately recommend it for anyone.86446

I feel for the price this product is excellent. It is a little cumbersome to fold down out of the for back hatch access though it can be done. I now use my side doors much more to access the back:) I haven't had the chance to put my bike on it yet so cannot comment on the actual usage part. I have a beach cruiser so am very curious to see how this holds it. So far I like it.84165

This is a very high quality bike rack but I'm marking this a 2/5 because I'm very disappointed for one major reason: the threaded hitch pin/anti-rattle bolt does NOT prevent rattle. The bolt itself easily slides right through the hole and does not require tightening, and therefore the entire rack rattles. I'm desperately trying to find a solution and I'm very dissatisfied. I'm driving a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium and I'm using the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch (http://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Hitch/Ford/Focus/2012/24872.html?vehicleid=2012306671).81983

I really like this rack. It is easy to use, folds up small, and keeps the bikes very steady. Plus, it is RV rated, which we will use often. I do have some recommendations. When assembling it the first time, the square brackets that hold the wheel ovals on the frame were tough to compress with the plastic hand-knobs. I opted to use pliers to try to torque the brackets down enough to keep the ovals from sliding on the frame. This caused a problem because one of the knobs broke. What I would suggest: 1. larger more sturdy hand knobs. 2. compress the square brackets before putting them over the frame tube. 3. Improve the plastic/metal connection between the plastic knob and metal nut.76356

Great product with excellent shipping! This makes it so easy to carry your bikes, easy on and easy off and it could not be faster. I was amazed. When I ordered it I was a little concerned that it may not work for my wife's bike, which is a hybrid with a sloping center beam, almost like a touring bike. No worries there though, it works flawlessly. I swapped out the screw in coupler (the pin in the hitch) with a locking kind and now don't even worry about theft. eTrailer had this thing at my house in two days. Unreal.

Product is exactly as advertised, Very securely packaged and extremely easy to assemble (less than 15 minutes).

Bikes rode securely and were just as easy easy to get out of the rack as they were to put them into the rack. I'll look forward to the warmer weather when I can start doing more trail riding. 61741

Bike rack appears to be well made. The instruction are somewhat vague. I had washers left over and nothing in the illustrations showed where they are used. Durability is still to be determined.

I was fully prepared to have a difficult time assembling this bike rack from some of the other comments about confusing or missing directions on how to construct. I was puzzled - as I've never assembled anything that was easier or more straight forward. You may think I'm highly advanced or being egotistical - but my take is you'll find this assembly easy - and you'll be relieved. As for the bike rack itself - you'll thank God for who ever engineered this thing many times over. I went by a park recently, before my shipment arrived, and saw a mom & daughter trying to load their bikes on the traditional carriers out there. With frames slanted every which way and their bikes being damaged in the process - I was sold before mine even arrived. I talked to them about the alternatives - but sadly they looked at me like what they were doing was the only way and what was I talking about. I now have the bike rack and I haven't installed a bike yet [will this weekend as I carry 2 over the pass into Eastern Washington]. The rack is so compact and simple behind my car that I hardly notice it's there - and when I do I am amazed by the design simplicity. I'm really going to like this thing. Buy it - everyone will think you're a genius and you be gratefull everytime you pass jumbled bikes or the harness with 50,000 straps.55595

I purchased this bike rack with the hitch for my Hyundai Sante Fe. I had originally tried the strap style bike rack and it did not work well with the small spoiler in the back of my SUV. The hitch and rack system is very secure, the bikes didn't move at all as we drove. The rack is much lighter than my neighbor's (which has the center bar style), so I can maneuver this easily myself. One great feature is that when the rack is empty, the center bar folds over and you can get into the back hatch of your SUV. Very easy to set up, use and remove. High quality and good value - I highly recommend this product!52261

I needed a rack to hold two bikes on a 2005 Honda CRV. This rack is perfect! Since one bike has the dropped crossbar, I needed a rack that would carry both styles, this rack does that. Also, the spare tire and hard cover make clearances an issue. Using the etrailer questions page, I was able to determine the dimensions and clearances of the bike rack to make certain is was correct for my application. I placed the order, had an immediate confirmation and the rack was shipped the next day. It arrived as scheduled in perfect shape. The directions are a little vague and do not match the hardware, but it is not an issue. This is very simple to assemble. I like the fact that the weight of the bikes is supported in the hoops, then the clamps secure the frames, a very secure system. The hoop locations are adjustable, it took me a couple of tries to find the ideal configuration for holding our bikes. Also, the rack can be folded down (with the bikes removed) to allow the rear door to opened without removing the rack from the car. Etrailer is great to deal with and I got a great price with free shipping.47052

I very highly recommend this carrier. Good build quality, assembles fast, adjusts for each bikes tire size, bikes are securely held tight in place with the two padded ratchet hold down hooks. Bikes load very fast with this carrier. To further stabilize the bikes I'm using one strap #18050 for the top and two straps #Y8890156, one for each side. Note the video and picture under comments with these straps for suggestions on usage of them. Combined with these straps, the bikes are held quite securely on our 2002 Honda Civic. This is a fantastic carrier at a great price from a very reputable company, thank you etrailer! 36563

Rack assembles just as pictured. My only concern is that the manufacturing tolerance is too loose where the vertical component of the rack slides onto the square tubing that connects to the hitch. This loose tolerance allows the entire vertical section, with the bikes mounted, to rotate too much from side to side. It concerns me enough that I'm looking for some way to shim the square tubing to tighten the fit. In contrast, the tolerance at the hitch end is nice and snug.35117

Very pleased with the construction, better than I expected at this price. I knew I wouldn't be getting the high-dollar-brand functionality, but I'm happy with the amount of quality here. Before ordering I was concerned with the side-mounted wheel cradle "loops": the pics make them look a bit flimsy. But, now that I have hefted them I'm not worried about loading my good bikes on them. They are solid. (I will, however, warn the kids to never stand on them.) Practical design makes loading bikes quick and efficient. I haven't road-tested it yet, but mine is fully assembled and mounted, and passes the grab-and-shake test.112388

  • For step through frame bikes like your Skeppshult Ladies Nature, the important measurement that is needed is from the ground up to the lowest part of the frame. On this bike, that appears to be directly above the pedals. If the distance from level ground to the top of the lowest part of the frame is 15 inches or more, it will hold the bike. Another option is to use the Rola NV2, # 59508. Instead of putting the strap around the top of the fenders, you could route them between the fender and ti

  • How to Lock Bikes to the Swagman XC Trailer Hitch Mounted Platform Bike Rack
  • To lock the bikes to the Swagman XC Bike Rack, # S64650, AND to lock the bike rack to the hitch you can use the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable for Swagman Bike Racks, # S64031. Or, another option is to just use a cable lock, # CAB-10, and wind it through the bikes and rack and tow loops on the trailer hitch.

  • Can Rear Door Open on 2007 Toyota Matrix With Swagman XC 2 Bike Carrier # S64650 Installed
  • With the Swagman XC 2 Bike Carrier, part # S64650, installed on your 2007 Toyota Matrix and the two outer arms in the down position, the center post can be lowered also and allow your rear door to open, but it cannot be used in that position while the vehicle is moving since the center post can not be locked in the down position. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Swagman bike rack and a link to a video review of the XC 2 bike carrier that will show how the center

  • How to Determine if a Swagman XC Bike Rack would Clear the Spare Tire of a 2005 Honda CR-V
  • In order to determine if you could install a Swagman XC Bike Rack on your 2005 Honda CR-V you will need to take one important measurement. You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin of your hitch out to the furthest portion of the spare tire cover. If that measurement is less than 10-1/2 inches then you could use the # S64650. The # S64650 measures 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin out to the nearest upright bar of the rack, so as long as you the measurement you to

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Ford Focus Se with Class I Hitch
  • It sounds like you need a Class I compatible bike rack for your 2008 Ford Focus SE. I would recommend the Swagman XC bike rack, # S64650, for your vehicle. This rack is easy to load the bikes onto, see video, it folds up compact enough to put in the trunk when not needed, and it holds the bikes securely keeping them from contacting each other or the back of the vehicle. One of my friends has this rack on his Focus. He uses it a lot and really likes it. I have added a link to all of the Cla

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for an EZ-Sport Recumbent Bike
  • To carry your Easy Sport Recumbent using the hitch on your 2005 Lexus RX330, I would recommend the Swagman XC Extended Bike Rack # S64650-EXT. This rack is an extended version designed to accommodate Recumbent bike. The Swagman # S64650-EXT will accommodate bikes with a wheel base of up to 66 inches and my research shows that the EZ-Sport recumbent bike has a wheel base of 62 inches. The weight capacity of this rack is 80 lbs. To determine if your bike will fit the rack, you will need to meas

  • How to Determine if the Swagman XC Will Clear Spare Tire on a 2004 Jeep Liberty
  • In order to determine if the Swagman XC 2 Bike Carrier # S64650 will install on your 2004 Jeep Liberty you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin out to the furthest point out on your spare tire. Next, you will compare that distance to the 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin that the # S64650 has to the first wheel hoop. If the distance you measure is less than that the # S64650 would clear the spare tire. If not, then you know it would not work for you. If you ne

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying Electric Bikes on a 2006 Toyota Prius
  • I think I have a hitch mounted bike rack that could work for you, but the Swagman XC Bike Rack # S64650 has a capacity of 35 lbs/bike and would not work for you. I would recommend you get a Kuat NV Bike Rack # N104 as it is the only hitch we offer that can almost handle the weight of your bikes. This rack can carry 2 bikes weighing 60 lbs apiece and should do well to carry both of your bikes. If at all possible I would recommend you remove the batteries of your bikes while they are being tran

  • Recommended 2 or 4 Bike Platform Type Rack for 2011 Chevy Equinox
  • For a two bike platform rack that is compatible with your Curt Class III Receiver, I can highly recommend the Swagman XTC-2, part # S64670. The XTC is an upgrade of the XC model you referenced, it has stronger wheel hoops with straps to secure your bike wheels. The XTC2 can also handle bikes with wheel bases up to 66 inches, while the XC is limited to 51-1/2 inches. Either rack would include an anti-rattle hitch bolt, but I recommend using a locking hitch bolt and cable lock combo, part # S64
