Expert Answers about Hitch Bike Racks


  • Will Thule 4-Bike Carrier Fit 2006 Jeep Wrangler With Rear Mounted Spare Tire
  • The only way to know if a bike rack like part # TH957 or # TH956 will work on your 2006 Wrangler is to take a quick measurement. You will need a tape measure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel. Place the straight edge vertically against the back of the spare tire, letting it extend below the trailer hitch receiver opening. Then measure from the center of the hitch pin to the straight edge. This will give you the distance you need to clear the spare tire. The Thule Parkway,...

  • Can the Saris Freedom SuperClamp Hold a 20 Inch Kids Bike and Adult Bike Side by Side
  • The hooks on the Saris Freedom SuperClamp bike rack # SA4025 are on different tracks, though they are on the same arm, so that they do not interfere with each other and so that you can have different sized bikes loaded next to each other. Take a look at the picture I have included showing the different tracks for the hooks. The arms the hooks slide up and down on can only pivot so far so you would need to slide the wheel trays appropriately so that the arm is in a good position for the...

  • Will the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack Fit a 2016 Honda Fit
  • Yes, the Kuat Sherpa bike rack, # SH12P, will work with a 2016 Honda Fit with a Class I trailer hitch installed such as # 24920. The bike rack is Class I compatible and it will clear the rear of the Fit.

  • Will 27.5 Bike Tires Fit the Saris Thelma Bike Rack
  • I did some checking and it looks like the Saris Thelma # SA4239B is only going to work with 700c, 26 inch, and 29 inch tires so it is not a match for your 27.5 inch tires. I recommend using the Kuat Transfer, # TS03G, which works with bike tires from 20 to 29 inches. It also does not touch the bike frames at all. I have linked a video review of this rack for you.

  • Will Yakima FullTilt Hitch Bike Rack part # Y02463 Fit Factory Hitch of a 2016 Toyota Highlander
  • Any of our 2 inch hitch bike racks would fit your hitch just fine. The Yakima racks like the FullTilt part # Y02463 have a hitch pin design that would work well with your factory hitch on your 2016 Toyota Highlander. This is a great rack that would work well for you that we would recommend highly. The anti-rattle wedge would lock the rack into the hitch tube very securely but I would still recommend you line up the hitch pin hole too. I attached a review video for you to check out as...

  • Will Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack Fit Curt Hitch on a 2016 Prius 4 Touring
  • The Kuat Beta part # B202-114 would have no problem fitting the Curt hitch part # C11426. The distance the Beta has from the hitch pin hole to the upright mast of the rack would be more than needed to clear the bumper of your Prius. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well.

  • Replacement Padding Option for Upright Bars of Highland Sportwing Bike Rack
  • We don't have replacement foam padding for your Highland Sportwing but I do have a solution for you. We had a customer come back and say they were able to use 1-3/8 inch inner diameter foam padding with there Sportwing to add additional padding so you could do the same to replace the pads of your rack.

  • What are the Differences Between the Thule T2 Classic and T2 Pro Bike Racks
  • The Thule T2 Pro part # TH9034 is essentially a refined and upgraded version of the T2 Classic part # TH9044 which has been around a while and has been a very popular rack for us. The upgrades are mainly focused on the front-mounted HitchSwitch lever which allows a single person to easily tilt and fold the rack and the new AutoAttach system that allows the rack to be secured easily without any tools. The Classic requires a wrench to tighten the hitch pin. You would simply slide the rack...

  • Replacement End Cap Recommendation for a 2 inch Hitch Yakima Holdup Bike Rack

  • Fit of Thule T2 Pro TH9034 on 2006 Nissan Murano and 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • To determine if the Thule T2 Pro # TH9034 would be compatible with your Murano, you'd need to measure straight rearward from the hitch pin hole until the rear bumper is cleared. If that dimension is less than 6 inches, the T2 Pro would work fine with your Murano. I'll link you to an FAQ article that shows how this is done. The hitch needed for your Santa Fe will depend on whether it's a Sport or an SE/Limited model. For an SE or Limited model, use the Hidden Hitch # 87637 or # 87634...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Platform Style Bike Carrier For 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The Thule TH916 bike carrier has been discontinued and is no longer available, but we do have options for your 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. We offer the Thule T2 classic, part # TH9044. This rack has the same styling as the older version but the color has been changed to black, and it no longer features the cable lock as you mentioned. It does have a Snug Tite hitch lock included to secure the bike rack to your Outback. The newer version of the T2 is the T2 PRo, part # TH9034....

  • The hooks on the Saris Freedom SuperClamp bike rack # SA4026 are on different tracks so that they do not interfere with each other and so that you can have different sized bikes loaded next to each other. The arms the hooks slide up and down on can only pivot so far so you would need to slide the wheel trays appropriately so that the arm is in a good position for the hooks to clamp down on both bikes. This amount of adjustability will make this rack compatible with an adult bike and...

  • Will Thule Vertex Bike Rack TH9029XT Fit and Clear the Rear Spare of a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Yes, the Thule Vertex 4 Bike Rack # TH9029XT that you referenced is going to fit your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and would clear the rear spare tire as long as you have the stock tire size. I attached an install video that shows this rack installed on a very similar 2015 Wrangler and it cleared the spare easily. You would also need a hitch if you do not have one already. For that you would want the Curt # 9883544 which has an unbelievably great price and is confirmed as a fit. If...

  • How to Attach a Womens Bike to the Pro Series Eclipse Bike Rack 63124
  • The best way to attach a womens bike to the Pro Series Eclipse bike rack part # 63124 is going to be to use a bike frame adapter bar like the part # UB01 which connects at the steering stem and seat post to provide a horizontal attachment point for the rack. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2010 Jeep Wrangler to Clear Rear Spare
  • The Thule T2 Classic part # TH9044 would fit well on your 2010 Jeep Wrangler and would clear the spare without any problems. It has a distance of 19 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest bike rack so it would clear pretty easily actually. The Yakima TwoTimer part # Y02468 would also clear as the same dimension on it is 17 inches, but since the T2 only touches the bikes at the tires I would recommend this rack much higher than the Yakima. I attached a review video...

  • Trailer Hitch and Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for a 1994 Toyota Corolla
  • For your 1994 Toyota Corolla Wagon the Curt Hitch part # C11283 is a confirmed fit that would work well. If your hooks are on the outside of the trailer frame you would need to remove them to allow this hitch to install, but that wouldn't really be a big deal. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review video...

  • Will Swagman XC Platform Bike Rack or XTC-2 Platform Bike Rack Accommodate Women's Trek Shift 2
  • Either one of the bike racks you referenced, the Swagman XC # S64650 and XTC-2 # S64670, will work well for your wife's Trek Shift 2 bike. The wheelbase of the Shift 2 size 13.5 is just over 42 inches. This wheelbase is well within the wheelbase range of either bike rack. Additionally, in my research I found the wheels on the Shift 2 women's bike to be 2 inches wide. The wheel hoops of the XC will accommodate wheels up to 3-1/2 inches wide and the XTC-2's wheel hoops will accommodate...

  • Recommended 2-Bike Hitch Rack for Use on Back of 35-Foot RV
  • The Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack # TS02G is not designed for use on the back of an RV, but only on standard passenger vehicles (cars, trucks, SUVs). A bike rack meant for use on the back of a trailer or motorhome will be constructed to withstand the extra stresses found at the rear of such vehicles. There is more motion at the rear of a trailer than at the rear of a car (due to the longer distance from the rear axle) and this creates the forces that could damage a standard bike...

  • Recommended Best 2-Bike Rack for a 2011 Volvo C70 Transporting 2 Step Thru Bikes
  • I can help you pick out a bike rack that will be compatible with your Curt 1-1/4 Class I hitch # C11065 on your 2011 Volvo C70. The first thing we know is that from the center of your hitch pin hole to the edge of your bumper will need a rack with at least an 8-1/2 inch clearance. The Thule # TH990XT won't be able to work for your C70 but I do have several solutions for you. The Saris Freedom SuperClamp # SA4025 will fit your Class I 1-1/4 hitch and provide the bumper clearance you...

  • Recommended Trike Bike Rack for a Schwinn Adult Trike on a GMC Yukon XL
  • I have just the bike rack for you! The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000R-TRKADP will work for either a 1-1/4 Class II hitch or a 2 inch hitch to transport your husbands Schwinn Trike. For added security I recommend the anti-rattle hitch and cable lock # HRLHPTC. If you plan on riding with him we also have a 1-Trike 1-Bike Rack from Hollywood # HR1450R-TRKADP2. This rack fits a 2 inch hitch receiver and will come with the anti-rattle and cable lock included. You will want...

  • Can a 1-1/4 inch Hitch on a BMW 535ix Carry a 3-Bike Rack
  • Class I hitches can't handle the additional leverage and weight of the third bike since they are designed for lower capacity vehicles. Class II 1-1/4 inch hitches can carry three bikes though. If you check the hitch of your BMW 535ix and it says Class II or has towing capacities higher than 2,000 lbs trailer and 200 lbs tongue weight that would indicate a Class II hitch. Since I don't know the year of your vehicle I can't check to see what hitches are available. If it is Class II the...

  • Advise for Quicker Hitch Pin Removal/Install for a Yakima DoubleDown part # Y02424
  • Threaded hitch pins like what the Yakima DoubleDown part # Y02424 have do an excellent job securing the rack to the hitch but they do make for a somewhat longer install/uninstall. A ratchet with the right socket on it would make getting the bolt in and out the easiest. The socket size needed would be 15/16.

  • Options for Carrying 2 Bikes on Travel Trailer
  • I do have a solution that would allow you to carry your bikes without using the front receiver. Stromberg Carlson manufactures the Bike Bunk, part # CC-275 that would attach to the A-frame of your trailer. The bike bunk provides a 2 inch receiver with a 100 lb weight capacity, which means that the weight of the bikes and the rack needs to come in at 100 lbs or less. The Kuat Beta, part # B202-114 would be an excellent choice. The rack only weighs about 15 lbs, and has a maximum capacity...

  • Fit & Compatibility of Kuat Sherpa S101 Hitch Rack with 2015 Toyota Highlander & 2008 Infiniti G35
  • Your 2015 Toyota Highlander should have a 2-inch Class III type hitch like Draw-Tite # 75896. Your hitch should have a sticker on it that tells you these details. When we installed this hitch on a 2015 Highlander we found that the hitch pin hole was very close to the rear edge of the bumper cover, which is great news for you. This excellent clearance means you have a great match in the Kuat Sherpa # S101. This 2-bike hitch rack will fit nicely on the Highlander even when folded-up into...

This hitch racks fits both Class I and Class II 1-1/4-inch hitches and also 2-inch Class III hitches. And since it includes two sets of wheel hoops you have the ability to customize the rack for the specific bike wheelbase you have. The black wheel hoops provide a fit for up to a 52-inch wheelbase bike; if you need more space for a longer wheelbase you can simply...

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Sport Ride SE with Cargo Carrier fit a 2016 Toyota RAV4
  • As long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2016 Toyota RAV4 the Hollywood Racks Sport Ride SE with Cargo Carrier and Bike Expansion part # HR1400-85 would work well. Tongue weight is the vertical weight that is put on the hitch from either a trailer or accessory like a bike rack. When you are just using the cargo carrier without the bike rack portion you would end up having a 220 lb capacity. When you are also using it with the bike rack portion of the rack the tongue weight...

  • Availability of Bike Racks That Will Tilt With Bikes Loaded for 2015 Subaru Forester
  • We have a number of bike racks that are designed to allow you to keep the bikes loaded while they are tilted down or swung away to allow access to the cargo area, but most of the hanging style racks require the bikes to first be removed. The majority of the bikes that can be tilted while loaded are platform-style racks. My favorite platform-style bike rack is the Thule T2 Pro Bike Platform Rack for 2 Inch Hitches # TH9034 because the rack is easy to use and tilt down. This rack will...

If you are not towing you can use part # HE6007 in your trailer hitch and the # HE1011 can be used with that. This lightweight 11-lb rack will carry 2 bikes with a total weight capacity of 60-lbs.

  • Using Front Mount Hitch On 1995 Ford Camper Van For Platform Bike Carrier
  • You aren't crazy at all. Many people use the front hitch on their vehicle for carrying cargo but there is a bit of caution you need to be aware of. If you block the airflow to the front of the vehicle it can cause the vehicle to overheat and that would be a real problem. Also, you do not want to install anything that blocks the headlights or turn signals for obvious safety reasons. Plus, you do not want to put anything on the front that would impair the driver's visibility. The...

Our most popular swing away bike rack is the Thule Vertex Swing 4 # TH9031XT. I like this rack because it is easy to operate the swing away function, offers great features, and won't break the bank. A spring pin and hand knob are all that is needed to operate the bike rack's swing away feature for ease...

I have included a link to a video review of this bike rack for you. For a very light bike rack that also holds 2 bikes and that will fit 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch trailer hitches I recommend the VeeMe, # VME-V2. This bike rack weighs just 12-1/2 pounds and it holds the bikes at the wheels so it is compatible with many...

Now if you check out the picture I attached that shows where this dimension is taken you will see that the knob of the Thule Helium part # TH9042 would easily fit because of the contour of the bumper. Long story short...the Helium will fit and work well for you.

  • Can Thule T2 Bike Racks be Used in a 1-1/4 and 2 Inch Trailer Hitch

The T2 is actually now available in some different versions since the 917XTR is being phased out. There is the T2 Classic # TH9045 and the T2 Pro, # TH9035. The Classic is more like the 917XTR but the Pro is an all-new design. I have linked a video review of this bike rack for you. The new versions also would need to...

Your 2009 Mini Cooper convertible can be fitted with a 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch # C11130 if it is the S-Series, or part # C11160 if it has the single exhaust and is NOT an S-Series nor a Works series.

Instead check out the Softride Dura Parallelogram # SR26247 which can tilt while keeping the bikes upright so that you can access the rear cargo area of the vehicle.

  • Hitch Pin Hole Dimensions for Kuat Transfer and Sherpa Hitch Rack on Subaru OEM Hitch
  • On the Kuat Transfer hitch-mount bike racks # TS02G and # TS03G the center of the hitch pin hole on the shank is only 1-3/4-inches from the forward-facing end of the shank. This placement results in not enough shank material being inside the hitch tube on your Subaru OEM hitch. The racks will fit into the hitch but the OEM hitch design means potential instability and hitch damage from the weight of the loaded bike rack falling entirely on that fairly small length of receiver tube.

  • Does the Swagman Chinook Sit Higher than the XTC-2
  • On the Swagman Chinook # S64683 I calculate the distance from the top of the shank that fits into the receiver to the bottoms of the insides of the wheel trays to be approximately 5 inches. On the XTC # S64670 it is closer to 4 inches but that is deceptive since the wheel hoops don't have a bottom. Ultimately they are pretty close so if you like the Chinook it would not be much harder, if at all, than the XTC.

This bike rack measure 12-1/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier but the nearest bike will be a little closer.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2012 Kia Optima with Trek Bikes
  • I will be happy to help you find a trailer hitch and bike rack that will work on your 2012 Kia Optima to transport your bikes. Lets begin with the trailer hitch. The one I recommend for your Optima is the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch # 24853. I like this hitch because it is a budget friendly option and the warranty for this rack does not require the use of a support strap for non-trailer loads, like the Curt hitch's warranty requires.

One of the options Is to use a fixed ball mount with an extended shank to allow room for the bike carrier.

  • Towing a Trailer and Carrying Bikes at the Same Time with a 2012 Toyota RAV4

I checked the 2012 Toyota RAV4 owner's manual and for the V6 with tow package the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle is 350 pounds. This is important because the combined weight of the trailer's tongue weight and the weight of the loaded bike rack cannot exceed 350 pounds. The weight of your 2004 Starcraft 2107 trailer is 1,758 pounds. That would...

The trailer hitch I recommend if you do not have a hitch is the Hidden Hitch, part # 87697. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2 inch receiver opening. To protect the bike finish I recommend the Swagman Semi 4.0 bike carrier, part # S64698. This bike rack holds the bikes secure on the carrier with the wheel mounts so the bike frame is not touched....

  • Lightweight Bike Rack Recommendation to Make Installing and Removing Easy
  • The easiest to install and remove bike racks are the light weight ones. The # TH934XTR is a great rack but it weighs right at 40 lbs. Our lightest 4-bike carrier is the Saris Bike Porter 4-Bike Rack, # SA404B, at 23-1/2 lbs. This is an entry-level bike rack with basic features. This bike rack will fit Class II and higher trailer hitches and you can add a hitch lock, # SA3022, and a cable lock, # SA981. For an even lighter bike rack that is loaded with features but only can carry...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation Approved for Use Behind an RV
  • I have a very similar solution I can provide, but the Hollywood Rack bike rack part # HR200 is not rated for use behind an RV. Instead the Swagman part # S64663 has been reinforced for the rougher ride quality at the rear of a trailer or RV so it would be a great option for you to consider. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Swinging 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying Carbon Bike and Cruiser with Fender
  • For your carbon road and mountain bikes a wheel mounted rack like the ones you mentioned are going to be the best possible option for the platform style of bike rack. Now your wife's cruiser bike that has a front fender and rear rack is making everything difficult as typically this configuration can only be carried with a frame mounted bike rack. If the fender was metal and very securely mounted to the fork of the bike then one of these racks could potentially work, but without seeing it...

  • Recommended Light Weight Platform Style Hitch Bike Rack for a 2005 Volkswagen Touareg
  • I can help you find a bike rack that will be easy for you to install, load, and remove all by yourself.

The Swagman rack will weight about 30lbs total and folds up for easier removal and storage, which makes it very easy to do by yourself. If you are transporting alternative framed bikes, like many women's bikes are, you will need the use of a bike adapter...

I have a similar bike rack option for you to consider as well. Class I hitches can only carry up to 2 bikes at a time.

  • Compatibility of Saris Freedom 2 AS4412B-FB Fat Tire Bike Rack with 2006 Honda CR-V
  • To determine if the Saris # SA4412B-FB will be compatible with your 2006 CRV, you'll need to measure rearward from the hitch pin hole in the receiver tube till you pass the rear edge of the spare tire. If this distance is less than 10 inches, the rack should work well for you. When we installed a hitch on the 2006 Honda CRV, we found that the hitch pin hole to rear of spare tire distance was 8-1/2 to 8-3/4 inches. this means that the rack should fit fine, but on the bike closest to the...

The Trail Rider's generous weight capacity (100-lbs total, or 50-lbs per bike) indicates its sturdy build. And the 5-inches of rise in the shank give this rack better ground clearance than others.

  • In my opinion, if given the choice between the Swagman XC, # S64650, and the XTC, # S64670, I would go with the XTC every time. The upgraded wheel loops and rubber straps better secure the bikes than the wheel loops alone on the XC. The XTC can also handle bikes with a wider wheelbase, up to 66 inches. The XC can only handle up to a 51-1/2 inch wheelbase. These features are very useful and the extra security of the straps on the wheel loops add peace of mind and functionality. I have...

But the biggest selling point for this rack for me is the fact that it can swing out and away from the rear of a vehicle with bikes loaded for unrestricted access to the rear of the vehicle. So if you load your bike all up on the rack and then forget to throw something in...

  • Why Can't Thule Apex Bike Rack be Tilted While Bikes are Loaded
  • The problem is that on many tilting bike racks, such as # TH9025 as an example, the whole mast is tilting down changing the angle of the arms from being parallel to the ground to about a 45 degree angle. So if tilting with bikes loaded the bikes will want to stay straight up and down and will run into each other and/or the ground. It is very awkward to say the least. Take a look at the picture I included that shows what I mean. Like the picture suggests a Softride bike rack that tilts...

To see if the Hollywood Racks # HR1400 rack will work on your Sienna, measure the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rear edge of the back bumper. If this distance is less than 6 inches, the rack will be able to fully fold, and will work great for you. I'll link you to an FAQ article that shows how to take that measurement.

You don't necessarily have to use bike adapter bars. But there are some situations where using one is the only way to load certain bikes. Take a look at the video I have linked for some examples.

The 'foot' of the carrier that would need to clear the underside of the doors is only 4-1/2 inches tall, measured from the top of the bike rack's shank, so it will clear your rear swinging doors with absolutely no problem.

If you installed Draw-Tite hitch # 75876 then the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear of the vehicle is 5 inches on the 2015 Forester, see video link.

The reason some racks have lower capacities is the capacity of the cradles that hold the bikes. They individually have their own capacities. That is why a 4 bike rack will have a higher total capacity but then say it can only carry 35 lbs per bike. If you needed a hitch you would also want the part...

  • I can help you with the Thule Apex Swing part # TH9027 dimension you are looking for but I would recommend you go with the Thule Vertex Swing part # TH9031XT instead. The reason I say this is because the anti-rattle knob of the Apex is pretty difficult to use. Most find that it's pretty hard to eliminate all movement of the rack with it. The Vertex uses a threaded hitch bolt instead so not only does it remove movement better but it is also will not cause any clearance issues. Since the...
