This Curt bike rack makes it easy to carry 2 bikes on the back of your vehicle. The platform-style rack is easier to load than a hanging rack because you don't have to lift your bikes nearly as high to get them into place. Ratcheting hooks and wheel hoops accommodate 2 bikes of most shapes and sizes. The entire rack tilts down for easy access to your cargo area, even while the bikes are loaded. And you can choose between 2 different ways to fold the rack up for storage on your vehicle when it's not in use.


Ratcheting Frame Hooks

Each center mast has 2 ratcheting hooks that move up and down independently of one another. This allows you to carry up to 2 bikes of different heights or with different frame styles. The hooks firmly grip your bikes by the top tubes, and they are cushioned to protect your bike frames from scratches and scuffs. Once you slide the hooks into position, just lock them in place.


Adjustable Wheel Hoops

Curt platform bike rack cradles

Sturdy, adjustable wheel hoops let you carry bikes of different lengths. Use the built-in knobs to loosen the hoops. Then slide the hoops to the desired position along the platform base and tighten them into place.


Tilting and Folding Design

Curt platform bike rack in tilted position

The entire rack can be tilted down - away from your vehicle - so that you can easily access your rear cargo area, even when your bikes are loaded. Just pull the pin at the base of the rack to tilt it down.


Curt platform bike rack storage options

There are 2 ways that you can fold up the rack to store it on your vehicle when it's not in use. Option 1 lets you fold the cradle arms up towards the upright mast. Simply remove the pins and fold up the arms. Then replace the pins to secure the arms in the upright position. Option 2 lets you fold the rack up against the rear of your vehicle. First, lower the center mast by removing its pin and clip at the base and then fold the mast down forward. Then remove the pins from the base of the rack and fold up the carrier.


Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin and Adapter Sleeve

Curt platform bike rack anti-rattle hitch pin

This rack comes with an anti-rattle hitch pin. The threaded pin holds the bike rack in your hitch, and it reduces noise and movement of the rack inside your hitch. An adapter sleeve is included as well, which allows the rack to fit either a 1-1/4" or a 2" hitch receiver. Because this bike rack has a threaded shank, it is not compatible with standard hitch locks.

The rack carries the bicycle safely and securely, as advertised. However if some other method had been provided instead of pins that must be removed and reinserted to tilt the rack or fold the rack, I would have given the rack a higher rating. The pins work ok, but this feature could have been more user friendly. Also, I was concerned that I could carry my Bike Friday NWT, a bike with a very low crossbar and 20-inch wheels. I submitted the question of fit to etrailer and received a prompt assurance the the rack would work. It does, however the hoops that capture the wheels allow the wheels to settle deeper than if the bike had larger wheel (26" or more). My bike has fenders and I am planning to trim about an inch or so from the rear end of the front fender so that it doesn't hit the hoop. The technical team at etrailer are excellent. I have especially valued their installation videos when purchasing other products. etrailer gets the full 5 stars.

After a lot of research, I purchased this for my 2018 Jeep JL. According to what I read, it would fit my vehicle. I got it assembled and on the hitch. I really liked it. Loaded bikes, perfect. Then came the bad news. I tilted out the bikes to access the back end. It doesn't work. The lower part of the rack interferes with the spare tire and you can only open it a few inches. That was the whole reason I purchased this unit. So now I am stuck with a rack that I will have to completely remove each time I need to access the back end.

Hi Jenny. Thank you for reaching out. I have attached several pictures. You can see that while it does tilt out, the fixed piece that goes into the receiver does not move and only allows the door to open slightly. This is a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sport JL with standard spare. I estimate that I would need to add a receiver of about 6 inches before the tire would clear that ”L” shaped piece. Let me know if you have additional questions.

With how the back door swings open on the Jeep I know of a few options on a rack that would allow it to open. You can add a part like part # Y02483
Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches
$398.95
that would allow the rack to swing to the side. It is a pricier option. You could switch out to a different rack like part # HRSR1
Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount
$169.99
that mounts around the tire.

Happy it arrived earlier than expected. Assembly was easy. I installed just the inside platform since I only have one bike. Took bike on 250-mile drive to the Anthills trail in Houston, TX and had no issues. Over the engine and road noise, I could occasionally hear the rack creaking as it bounced up and down on rough roads. I'm using the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" along with the Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap for Hitch-Mounted Accessories - 61" x 1". The stabilizing strap does provide peace of mind. I'll probably get something to strap the wheels to the wheel hoops in the near future as an extra precaution.

Been working flawless, no issues. The bikes stay solid in place at highway speed or otherwise. Takes a little muscle to hook it to the car hitch because of the weight, but was not unexpected.

Bought to use for a trip from upstate NY to Daytona Beach FL Attached to my 2” receiver hitch on my Dodge Caravan CV. Easy to set-up and hitch. Mounted two bikes no problems! Tilt and fold-up features came in handy for opening the hatch during the trip and keeping rake on but out of the way while in Daytona. Made the trip both ways and way unnoticeable while driving. Would definitely recommend this product!!

I am impressed with etrailer. I received my bike rack very quickly and I really like the product. This rack is manufactured by Curt and it's heavy duty. I used a Curt 5th wheel hitch in my pick-up and it worked awesome. This bike rack worked perfect as described, I fine tuned the adjustments and we really happy. Good job etrailer!

I installed this rack on a 2015 BMW X3 with a Curt 2" receiver. The installation went OK except that the spring retaining clips in several cases need to opened with a screwdriver vs by hand. Here are some of my comments. First is the retaining bolt was very difficult to install with the wrench provided (see Photo) you can not turn the bolt very far with any wrench. I used a driver and a 19mm socket. I then bought one to have in the car. Second, our bikes have different cross bar heights, so it was not possible to put the larger bike on the inside closest to the vehicle (see Photo). The clip the holds the bikes in place could not go down enough with the larger bike on the inside so switching them solved that issue. Third the draw bar portion does not have a stop to help line up the holes for the retaining bolt. This was solved by putting orange tape on the bar to help with alignment. A good feature is that with the bike retaining clips all the way down the back hatch can be opened without any adjustment to the rack. Also the rack did not impact the foot opening switch for the back hatch. The rack did very well in our first test drive.

It is working great! We took it on a week long trip and it performed great. The 2 reciever keeps the rack a lot more stable than the 1-1/4

I made two different purchases from etrailer and George J. I am extremely pleased with my trailer hitch receiver. It is exactly what I need to transport our bikes from point A to B. I also bought a bike rack that I am extremely happy with. It is sturdy and easy to use. The etrailer website is very user friendly and I appreciate the videos that help me get a clear picture of various products. The company communicates clearly and keeps me updated on shipping and delivery and they follow through on their timelines. I will definitely use them again!

The rack is well made and solved the issue of other racks positioning the bike wheels too low to the ground. Our Prius is quite low. All the parts were included and we were able to follow the instructions to put it together with a minimum of expletives. The order came very quickly in 3 days instead of the 10 that was predicted.

So after one year of use, I have to say that this bike rack is worth every penny. It is the most thought trough design possible. Clearly the designers use their own product themselves. This is so easy to use, stores in a small space, makes bringing our bikes a fun easy add on to any weekend. I am glad I picked this bike rack, I would order again, but don't think I ever will need to, as it seems to be well made. I highly recommend it to people who want an easy, quality, bike rack. I have had cheaper bike racks, and again I am so glad I picked this one. Worth every penny.



- C18085
by:

It's a fair priced quality bike rack. It is easy to assemble, fast shipping & clear instructions. The only thing that I was concerned with is it seems to sag a little on the right side when it's loaded (I would've gave it 5 stars if it wasn't for this issue). Maybe, I need to strap it to the receiver hooks. I was a little disappointed that it was made in china unlike my curt reciever. I guess that's how it is in a globalized society.

Have loved the rack for our bikes. Only problem is getting a replacement pin that holds it to the hitch on the car. We traded in the car the hitch was on and I left the pin in the hitch. Not easy to just find the screw/pin to replace but have it in the works. Love the rack though.



- C18085

Just assembled the bike rack and so far so good. It was missing a small piece of hardware for the anti-rattle, but I just went and picked one up at the hardware store, so no big deal. We haven't put the bikes on it yet, but it seems like it'll be very sturdy.



- C18085

This is a sturdy and safe bike rack. We've used it for long and short drives to bike paths, and love it! I have a 2016 VW Jetta with a dealer-installed tow-hitch which the rack attaches to, and we've had no issues. The rack holds the 2 bikes securely on high speed roads, as well as on lower speed off-road byways with gravel and unexpected rough terrain. The "tilting" feature comes n very handy for trunk access. I highly recommend this Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack.

  • Use of Curt Support Strap With Bike Rack
    If you have a Curt Class I or Class II 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver, you should use the Curt trailer hitch support strap with a cam buckle, # 18050 for any non-trailer loads, like a bike rack or cargo carrier. While required by less manufacturers now than previously, a support strap is still recommended on some hitches and always a valuable added component for stability.

  • Can a Bike Rack Be Used on the Front of a 2008 Ford F-350 While Towing
    Yes, the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack part # C18085 will be sufficient for use on the front of your 2008 Ford F-350 with a front mount trailer hitch.
