Working very good I like it, 705147

I don't know what I can say good about this Thule EasyFold XT 2 E-Bike Platform Rack that hasn't already been said before. The designers of this rack knew what they were doing. As the old saying goes, "They Built A Better Mouse Trap"! It's light weight but sturdy, secure, fender friendly, compact, portable, easy to install, no assembly or tools required and easy to load bikes on . I was reluctant in purchasing this rack because of the initial cost but after much research I come to the conclusion as with many other purchases, that in most cases you get what you pay for. I really like the one person ease of loading and solid method of securing the bikes, the built-in 3 security locks using the same key, the fold-up compactness for storage and the ramp to aid in loading our 63 lb. E-bikes. If your spending $4,000 to 8,000 for E-Bikes don't cut corners. Keep them save and secure going down the road. I highly recommend this Thule Hitch Bike Rack for E-Bikes. 691640

This super bike rack arrived on time, and will become a major means of transporting up to two fat tire ebikes as well as other bikes. I'll keep you posted as I hook it to a trailer hitch I'm having installed on my 2009 Honda Accord. 681731

I purchased these for a different Thule rack than they originally were intended for and they worked perfectly. My main concern was that they would fit the buckle and were long enough, they checked both boxes. Now I am able to put a bike with any sized tires on my rack with plenty of strap to spare. etrailer was great, the order was processed quickly and arrived within a few days. 100% satisfied with the entire experience. THANKS :) 559338

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Two E-Bikes With Fenders
  • The Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B you referenced is a fantastic bike rack, but since you have electric bikes with fenders you will need to go a different direction. The reason is the NV 2.0 is a wheel-mounted bike rack and the clamps will not mount to the frame, they are designed only to clamp to the front wheel, and fenders will interfere. The bike rack I highly recommend for a pair of e-bikes with fenders is the Thule EasyFold XT 2 E-Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 because it is a frame-mounted...

  • Differences Between Thule EasyFold and EasyFold XT
  • The Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 is the latest version of the Thule EasyFold TH9032 and there are a few upgrades to what is already considered by many to be the best bike rack available, due in large part to its quality of life features. It still has the same 65 lb per bike capacity and can work in 1-1/4" or 2" hitches. The EasyFold XT # TH903202 can handle 3" tires or up to 4-11/16" tires with Fat Bike Straps # TH985101 while the EasyFold TH9032 was limited to 2-1/2" wide tires. The...

  • Will Thule EasyFold X2T Bike Rack Handle 2 RadRover e-Bikes
  • The Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 that you referenced is an excellent rack but based on my research it looks you would have to probably remove the batteries on your e-bikes for this to safely support them. The EasyFold XT features a weight capacity of 65 pounds per bike and from what I found your RadRover bikes weigh 68 pounds. If you are able to remove the batteries to get them under the carrier's capacity then this is a great solution. Since your RadRover...

  • Distance to Closest Part of Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack and Correct Fat Tire Adapter for E-Spec
  • When we measured the Swagman E-Spec 2-Electric Bike Platform Rack # S64689 we found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack was 10-1/2 inches. I have added a photo showing you this measurement, which is from about the 2:30 mark of the linked video review of this bike rack. In regards to fat tire wheel holders there is a specific adapter you will need for the Swagman E-Spec # S64689, which is the Fat Tire Adapter Kit for Swagman # S64679....

  • Does Thule EasyFold XT 2 Require Fat Tire Bike Straps for 3-1/2 Tires?
  • The Thule EasyFold XT 2 # TH903202 can fit tires that are up to 4-11/16" wide with Fat Bike Straps # TH985101. The EasyFold XT is one of the best bike racks available due to it's ability to transport many different types of bikes and the quality-of-life features it offers. This rack can carry bikes with wide tires and has a 65 lb per-bike weight capacity; it also has detachable arms that can be repositioned to hold bikes of different heights by the downtubes, a hand knob to tighten the...

  • Will the Thule EasyFold XT Work with RadRover Electric Fat Bikes
  • Yes, the clamps on the Thule EasyFold XT 2 E-Bike Platform Rack part # TH903202 will work with the frame on your RadRover Electric Fat Bike. However, you will need to position them so that they attach to the top tube. In order for the EasyFold XT to work with the 4-1/2" wide tires you will also need the Fat Bike Straps part # TH985101. With the correct positioning of the clamps and the Fat Bike Straps, the EasyFold XT will be an excellent choice for your RadRover Electric Fat Bike. The...

  • Electric Bike Rack with Ramp Needed for Two 65 lb Bikes to Use on a 2013 Dodge Durango
  • We have the perfect solution for you! The Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 is the ONLY bike rack that has all of the features that you mentioned and more! It comes with a weight capacity of 65 lbs per bike, has a tilting feature, and also includes a self-storing ramp to help with the loading and unloading of the bikes. It comes with straps that are compatible with 3" wide tires, but you can get the Fat Bike Straps # TH985101 which then allows it to accommodate tires up to 4-11/16" wide. A...

  • For your electric bikes with 4 inch tires, the Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 will require the use of Fat Bike Straps for Thule EasyFold XT # TH985101 while the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Electric Fat Tire Bicycles # HR1455Z-E will not because this rack can accommodate tires that are up to 5 inches wide.

  • Recommended Class III Hitch for 2018 Subaru Forester for Hitch Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack
  • For your 2018 Forester we do have both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitches from several makers. We always recommend the larger and higher weight capacity Class III hitch when the option exists because this size offers broader compatibility with hitch accessories and does not cost much more than the Class II models. Installation on your Forester will be pretty much identical regardless of hitch class or brand so you might as well get the most for your money. The hitch I recommend...

  • Recommended Hitch Rack for Electric Fat Bikes
  • Most e-bikes do typically weigh a good bit more than the standard bike weight of 30-35-lbs and most bike racks are limited to this 35-lb weight for each bike. Since the Green Bike USA GB500 weighs 57-lbs you will definitely need a higher-capacity rack like the Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack # TH903202. This rack directly accepts tires up to 3-inches wide and it can be fitted with Fat Bike tire adapter # TH985101 which lets it hold tires up to 4-11/16-inches wide. Thule...

  • Differences Between the Thule EasyFold and Thule EasyFold XT TH903202
  • The Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 is just simply the latest version of the original Thule EasyFold 9032 which has some additional/improved features. The old carrier is referred to as the Thule EasyFold whereas the new carrier is referred to the Thule EasyFold XT. There is currently no such thing as the Thule EasyFold XT 2. The first improved feature of the EasyFold XT is the ability to carry bikes with larger tires. The EasyFold XT will accommodate bikes with tires up to 3" wide whereas...

  • Fat Bike Straps # TH985101 will allow a bike with tires up to 4-11/16 inches wide to fit the EasyFold XT, # TH903202, but not 5 inch wide tires. There are other bike racks that will accept fat bike tires up to 5 inches wide right out of the box: Thule T2 Classic # TH9044 or # TH9045 RockyMounts MonoRail # RKY10007-05 RockyMounts BackStage # RKY10002 Yakima HoldUp EVO # Y02479 or # Y02480 Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2-Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # HR200Z-FB Hollywood Racks Sport Rider...

  • Recommended 2-Bike Hitch Rack for 55-lb Diamondback Lindau Electric Bikes
  • Thule's EasyFold 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 is my go-to rack for electric bikes. It is packed with beneficial features that make using it a breeze and it also offers exceptional flexibility, making it quite possibly the last bike rack you ever need to buy. The EasyFold works with wheelbases up to 48-inches, offers a 65-lbs-per-bike weight rating, works with tire widths up to 3-inches (and up to over 4-inches with optional fat tire kit # TH985101) and it includes locks for the...

  • How Far Does the Thule EasyFold XT Stick Out From the Back of My Vehicle?
  • Since the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 does not actually fold up towards the vehicle it sticks out 35" from the center of the hitch pin hole even when in its most compressed form. Considering the Thule T2 Classic # TH9044 sticks out 36" from the hitch pin hole the difference in the footprint when carrying bikes is going to be very negligible. When comparing the T2 Classic, that carrier folds up towards the vehicle whereas the EasyFold XT folds up lengthwise as you noted. The T2 Classic...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Toyota Tacoma That is Easy to Use
  • There is one bike rack that will accommodate most of your needs and is by far the easiest to use, the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202. This is beyond the price point you wanted, and you will not be able to clear the tailgate but since you mentioned having a bad back, and are concerned about the weight of the carrier and lifting your bikes up, as well as anchoring each bike on its own (including one with fenders), the best option for your needs truly is the EasyFold XT # TH903202.
