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.

I purchased this product for both long and short trips. I now wished I'd spent more money on a Thule rack instead. This one is cumbersome to put on and take off the vehicle, it shakes too much while traveling, and because of that, the bike frame gets the paint rubbed off because the cheap foam that is supposed to protect the bike didn't last one month intact. I'm giving it 2 stars because it does transport the bikes safely. 555175

I have used this rack for about a year. I am very happy with it. With experience, it has gotten very easy to mount the rack on the car and particularly easy to load bikes on the rack. The sway of the rack while we are driving is quite minimal. I like the way the rack folds down to allow access to our Subaru Outback trunk; though I don't even need to lower it to open the rear gate enough to squeeze in to quickly get something. My only disappointment is that the safety clips on many of the pins are very difficult to release if I don't have a screwdriver handy (and that risks scratching the paint). 540589

Perfect bike rack for my Wife and Myself. My wife and I own both beach cruisers and mountain bikes. The frame geometries on them are very different and the rack accommodates both. What's more is my Wife's bike frame on both of her bikes is a mixte, which makes using a hanger rack impossible. This rack is easier on the bikes anyway. The rack itself is very well made and looks like it will last a long time. One of the best things was the price and no shipping charge. I saved more money on a better rack than what I could get at the bike shop. Actually, the hitch AND rack together were cheaper! 494302

I’m giving 5 stars for this product new and set up out of the box. Easy to set up, heavy duty and better quality than I expected. I mounted a 2” hitch to my Grand Caravan and this unit uses a shim to gap up from 1 1/4”. That could be my only concern the more I use it. (Concerned about wear on the shin). I’m also very excited that it easily fits my LWB recumbent. My bike has 52” centers and this can easily accommodate 60-65” centers. So far, really impressed for the money. 475564

Great entry level rack for our two bikes Mens Mtn and Womens Cruiser. Love ratcheting adjustable lock downs. Its not pretty but does the trick for local transport. A little sway/vibration on uneven pavements. Overall very pleased after one year.

This bike rack sways and wobbles because the insert to the hitch is very small, there is a plastic adapter so it fits in the receiver which I hope it will not crack or break because that will only mean one thing.....garbage! I only drive a 8 mile round trip to my usual bike trail-head so I am okay with it, but I don't think I would go on a long trip with it, seems a bit flimsy and not sure how well it will hold up wobbling for hours. I am also having difficulties moving the top bars up and down (they hold the bike securely in place) and one of the locks do not work. But then again the cost was much less than others so maybe that is the trade off. For now, it is serving its purpose. It was easy to put together, I like the compact feature so I can store it easily when not in use. 469926

Ordered and received and 1 1/4" etrailer hitch for our 2007 Forester on the advice of a co-worker, to find it fit like a glove! Arrived less than one week after we ordered it. Every single bolt center, thread pitch, exhaust and fuel vapor canister mount location was taken into account, and the offset angle of the rigid hitch frame allowed for installation exactly as shown in the installation instructions and it mated exactly to the car frame! Nice. Next was to purchase the ultimate goal, a solid durable, bike rack. We ordered the Curt 2-Bike Platform rack from etrailer. I think this is equally as impressive as the hitch was. Assembled smoothly, all the hardware was correct, assembly instructions were simple and complete, all the parts appeared to be thoroughly powder-coat painted, and like the hitch before it, it fits perfectly and the tilt-out angle makes cargo space access as easy as we had hoped. Kudos Etrailer!! You have impressed someone who is not easily impressed. I would and will recommend your products to anyone who asks. Thank you!! 520405

After reading the good reviews on this product I decided to purchase it. After my first drive with my bicycles mounted to this I could tell I was not going to be satisfied with the product. First off it moves around while driving A LOT. Second I tighten all of the knobs down as tight as I can possibly get them on the 4 tire hoops and the 2 frame hooks and by the time I get where I am going they have all loosened up and the bikes are not secure anymore. The only redeeming thing was the quality of customer service from etrailer. 376933

I had purchased the older model a couple of years ago and have been happy with a lot of highway miles hauling two mountain bikes weighing @ 30lbs each. Fast forward, someone rear ended me. Rack was bent, but saved my car. Bent rack back to usable, however I don't trust it since it was bent. Purchased newer model and so far, its very nice and sturdy. Only time will tell if it holds up to hopefully many more bike trips. Usually 2-3 times a week @ 1-2 hr trips. Purchase with confidence. Also shipping was super fast. Tx 428580

Thank you so much for your review. I hope everyone is ok! Just a quick note for future customers ? when your vehicle has been involved in an accident, the manufacturer recommends that you replace the hitch or hitch accessory due to potential unseen damage resulting from the collision.

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. 402592

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! 549522

Very nice, sturdy bike rack. I needed a new rack because my old one was leaving scratches on my new truck getting the inside bike on and off. The distance between my tailgate and this bike rack is clearly wider so no problems with this one. Interpreting the assembly instructions was a little challenging but I got through it. This thing does have some weight to it (I think 48 lbs.) so if you're a weakling you might have mounting problems. I was hoping to be able to hang this on a wall for storage but it may be too heavy for that. So, I have to figure out storage but that's not a major concern. Took it for our first trip this week and this carrier performed great. Getting the bikes off and on was pretty easy (once I figured out which bike had to go on which side and how they had to be oriented). Definitely a step up from what I had before and at a reasonable price. 444223

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. 544441

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

  • Carrying Two Fat Bikes with the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack with Adapters
    If the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack, part # C18085 can carry two fat bikes will be determined by the weight of the bikes. Each position is limited to 45 pounds, and the individual bikes in this position can't exceed this weight capacity, even with the fat bike adapters, part # C18091 equipped onto the rack. If you're buying for two fat bikes, you can save a little bit by buying the dual Fat Bike kit, part # C18085-FB. If you have heavier fat bikes, and this rack won't work for you, I recommend...

  • Can Curt C18085 2 Bike Platform Rack Carry 2 Women's Comfort-Style Bikes w/ Step Through Frames
    Because one of the hooks is longer, it is indeed possible to safely secure two bikes with the same frame height. The answer to your question will depend on the exact geometry of the step-through frames. The wheelbase of the rack is adjustable so that in many cases one bike can be slid one way, and one the other far enough so that the frame hooks will catch. If it won't, a frame adapter like # 64005 which spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and seat post would provide a secure...

    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. I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31008 because it is American made, no drilling is required, and only minor trimming is involved (see photo). In fact, hitch mounted accessories on the front of the vehicle would actually be more sturdy than those on the rear as the distance from the front axle to the trailer hitch...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 65 lb Electric Bike

  • Can the Curt Platform Bike Rack C18085 Work With Womens Bikes
    The Curt hitch you have part # C13119 would work great with the Curt Bike Rack part # C18085 that you are interested in. The arms of this bike rack would work great with a womens bike as it would be able to slide down far enough to allow it to reach the lower down tube that a womens bike frame would have. If you check out the picture I attached you can see a woman's bike on the rack. The pink bike on the rack is a woman's bike with a lower down tube.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Use at Rear of RV
    At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. The most similar bike rack to the Curt you mentioned that is...

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.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Kent Alameda Folding Adult Trike
    Curt bike rack # C18085 can't hold your Kent Alameda Folding Trike and there isn't an adapter for it but we do have 1 rack that is designed specifically for trikes including adult trikes. It is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Trike Carrier for 1 Trike and 1 Bike - 2" Hitches Item # HR1450Z-E-TRKADP3. The adapter to carry trikes is included. It is also able to carry a regular bike at the same time! So a little added bonus.

  • Platform Bike Rack for a Road Bike and Cannondale Tandem.
    I have two great options for you for your bikes, the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider, part # HR1000Z-R and the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack, part # C18085 .

  • Will the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack Work With a Bike Over 45 Lbs If the Other Bike Is Under 45 Lbs
    The Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack part # C18085 is only rated for 45 lbs per bike as you mentioned. I cannot recommend you use any bike that weighs in excess of this figure. The total weight of the two bikes cannot exceed 90 lbs but there is still a 45 lbs per bike weight capacity regardless of the total weight of the two bikes. If you are looking for a similar bike rack with higher weight rating, I recommend the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack part # SA4412B which has a 60 lb per bike...

  • Will a 29er with XL Frame Fit Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack # C18085
    Your 29er will fit the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack # C18085. But you may need to position the hooks so that the taller hook is on top. Another option is to use a bike rack that doesn't hold the bike at the frame. The BikeWing # LGA54FR holds the bikes at the wheels only. It will work with bikes that have a wheelbase of 22 inches to 50 inches. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Carrying Identical Bikes on the Curt Bike Rack # C18085
    For the item you have selected, there would not be a problem with having bikes with the same height frame. The hooks that grab the frames are offset by 3 to 3-1/2 inches so that each hook can be securely positioned on both frames. If I can be of further assistance let me know.
