sport rider

The Sport Rider platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry 2 bicycles on the rear of your vehicle. This versatile rack is easy to use, and it features locking frame hooks and adjustable wheel hoops so you can quickly load and unload your bikes. The included adapter sleeve enables the rack to fit both 1-1/4" and 2" hitch receivers. An anti-rattle system tightens the rack's shank to your hitch receiver to prevent it from rattling around inside the tube.

Locking, Ratcheting Hooks


The Sport Rider uses locking frame hooks to secure your bikes. These ratcheting, cushioned hooks easily adjust along the vertical mast and lock securely in place. The release buttons allow each hook to slide up the ratcheting arm for bike removal. The hooks function independently, which means you can position them to carry bikes of different heights.

Adjustable Wheel Hoops

Sport Rider 2 Wheel Holders

The wheel hoops accommodate bicycles with wheelbases up to 60" by sliding along the horizontal arms. They secure in place with easy-to-use hand knobs, and the Velcro-like hook-and-loop straps fasten the wheels to the hoops.

Sport Rider 2 Hitch Bike Rack

If you want to carry a fat bike on the Sport Rider, you can replace the rack's wheel hoops with specifically-designed fat bike hoops (sold separately).

Folding, Tilting Design


The rack tilts, with or without bikes loaded, for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. Simply remove the pin from the base and tilt the platform down.


The rack also folds up against the back of your vehicle when it's not in use. To raise the rack, just lower the mast flat against the tray and then lift the rack up toward the back of the vehicle.

Easy Installation with Locking Hitch Pin

The rack easily installs in the hitch with the locking hitch pin. Just slide the shank into your receiver, insert the hitch pin, and attach the lock pod. The locking pin works as an anti-wobble device to eliminate sway and rattle in the receiver.

hitch adapter

A removable adapter sleeve is included so the rack can be converted for use with 1-1/4" hitch receivers. The sleeve attaches to the shank with a single screw and can be installed or removed quickly.

Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

The Sport Rider comes with locks for both the rack and your bikes to deter theft. The lock cores in the frame hooks hold the bike down on the rack and prevent them from moving. Also, the lock pod attaches to the hitch pin to secure the rack to your vehicle. These locks are conveniently keyed alike.

Add-On Adapters

 Hollywood Racks Wheel Hoop Adapters

If you want to use the rack to transport a kid's bike with 16" or 18" wheels, wheel hoop adapters (sold separately) are available.

If you want to transport one recumbent delta trike or one recumbent tadpole-style trike with the Sport Rider, you can use the HRTRK-ADP adapter (sold separately).

Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount - HR1000Z

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (111 Customer Reviews)

This hitch bike rack makes it easy to take 2 bikes to the trail. Ratcheting hooks hold bikes securely by the frame and lock to deter theft. Wheel hoops adjust for different wheelbases. Anti-rattle, locking hitch pin reduces wobble and sway.

- HR1000Z

Pros: Great rack for our two bikes! Fits nicely into the class 1 trailer hitch on my wife's Nissan Altima. Easy to use and holds bikes securely even on highway and gravel country roads. Locking bike arms and locking hitch bolt are a nice feature to deter theft. Would buy again! Cons: Locking bike arms work well overall but require just the right touch to make them go up when you want to take your bike off. Hitch bolt is longer than it needs to be, but not too difficult to use.

Still working great after a year. Easy to take on and off. A few cosmetic rust spots, but no issues with durability so far. Would recommend and buy again!
Benjamin K - 05/14/2021

Thank you for your review. Cover any bare metal with anti-corrosive paint to keep the rack looking fresh and lasting longer.

I would have given this bike rack a 5 star except for two issues. 1. the instructions to put it together are hard to understand but keep in mind I do not following them anyway but it was simple to put together 2. When it tips away from the vehicle with the bikes on the inside the pickup the end gate will hit the bike peddles, a fix for that is to extend the main tube from the receiver hitch accordingly. I did not try it on a SUV with the hatch. I think that would work fine. I also like the way it folds up when there is no bikes on it so it is out of the way (see picture) It is a well made bike rack and I would definitely recommend it

- HR1000Z

Great bike rack, easily assembled, fits our two bike perfectly. Sturdy, easy to load and unload bikes, love the tilt feature. Happy to be able to lock the bikes and the hitch lock. Haven’t used it on a drive yet but I’m sure we will be pleased!

- HR1000Z

Installed the HR1000 and the Drawtite hitch. Was very easy. The photos and videos on etrailer website were great, being able to refer to them for any questions during the assembly. The rack works great and we are able to open the hatchback on the rear of the prius without even having to tilt the rack and bikes back. VERY pleased.

- HR1000Z

Love the rack. It requires no ropes, bungees or towels to keep the bikes from rubbing together. Easy to load and unload. The bikes are secure over bumpy roads

- HR1000Z

Great bike rack and customer service was excellent, the best!!! Had to ship out a new wheel hoop and itnwas.done immediately. Great company

Fast shipping...meticulous packaging...solid well-built product

Great! Easy and secure travelling with my standard and electric bikes

- HR1000Z

Great Bike rack for the price. Once customized for your bikes no need to adjust again. It has simplified our bike outings. I highly recommend this bike rack.

- HR1000Z

This bike rack works fine. It solidly supports two bikes with no abrasions or other damage to the bikes. It is very stable on the back of the car and does not sway in corners or over bumbs in the road. It is relatively easy to mount on the car. Bikes go on easy although I do have to lift the forward bike fairly high to clear verticle bar. Occasionally I struggle a little bit releasing and sliding one of the lock downs that go over the frame of the bike. Overall, I have been very happy with it and it is a big improvement over my last bike rack where the bike frame was the only supported area.

- HR1000Z

Ordering was a breeze, shipping was both free and fast, arrived when it was supposed to, customer service was VERY responsive. The whole process went great.

excellent - exactly what I wanted and expected

Great online video showing how to install it yourself.

- HR1000Z

Quality customer service from the moment the order was placed to receiving the bike rack. Communication from etrailer was exceptional, knew what was happening every step of the way. This bike rack is sturdy, easily assembled and worth with the wait! Definitely recommend this product.

- HR1000Z

Decent rack and good value. Good service from eTrailer. I've had the rack for about a month and generally it has worked well for me. I was able to get it installed fairly easily and the range of positions and ability to use it with my bike that has fenders were pluses for me. Bikes have remained securely in place while driving. Critiques that led to my giving it a 4 was that I have found it a little fiddly when changing between the different positions, particularly when trying to tilt the rack away to open the rear hatch with two bikes mounted. Also, I would have liked some type of welded loop to attach the optional cable lock, which I also purchased. The hitch lock has worked well.

- HR1000Z

We received the bike rack faster than we expected. I had good service with questions by telephone and placed my order online. The directions to put the bike rack together we're fairly easy. The bike rack does have some wobble in the hitch mount so my husband used a shim and now it doesn't wobble at all. Our hitch is a 2 inch hitch. It is very easy to load the two bikes. We use a couple of Velcro strip tie downs as additional security attaching the bike frame to the center stand post. We purchased the Locking hitch pin and the Locking cable HRLHPTC that go with the Hollywood Rack Sport Rider 2. It comes with four keys keyed-alike. We are very happy with our purchase.

- HR1000Z

Very well packaged! Not a scratch on the bike rack, very impressed.

- HR1000Z

Rack came well packed and in perfect condition. The instructions are clear. Fits snuggly in 1.25" class one hitch with no wobble. The instruction say to have hooks secure frame at lowest point. I have two crank forward bikes with step through frames. The hooks won't go low enough to secure them at the desired point, so they touch where the frame is on an angle with a swim noodle for extra height and padding. Without the hooks attached and the upright bar lowered, my bikes are very easy to load. I really like that the rack and bikes can be locked and are keyed alike.

- HR1000Z

Very sturdy. Also easy to fold when not in use. Highly recommended.

- HR1000Z

Product arrived as described. With two beach cruiser we needed a rack that would hold heavier bikes, it was nice to find one well constructed, well engineered and easy to use. It is well within the weight restrictions for a class one hitch, wi both bikes on it. The customer service at etrailer.com has been exceptional! Thank you for getting us out there.

- HR1000Z

My wife and I are in our 70's and we have e-bikes, so we need to be able to load them easily. This is the perfect solution for us. We don't have to lift the bikes very high, and the way they ride is perfect for preventing damage to the bikes. Kimberly at etrailer.com was very helpful and answered all of our questions. It was also delivered very quickly.

- HR1000Z

The Hollywood bike rack works perfectly for short haul and long trips for my two bikes on our 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid. Easy assembly and setup. Dave from Siesta Key FL.

- HR1000Z

For the price I paid, I am very happy with the bike rack. After a year of frequent use, it works just as well as it did the first day. In retrospect, I wish I had paid a little extra for a model that does not require the removal of pins to tilt it up and down, but again, for the price I paid, I am very happy.

- HR1000Z

The product is well made and can accommodate the longer wheel base of my day 6 bike.

I am still using it regularly and love it. I have posted a response to your inquiry on my previous review. I think you will like my statements. Thanksfor the follow up and yes, I am a happy customer.

put the bike rack together but haven't used it yet. nice design. been using the saris trunk mount rack I bought from you in 2017. new one looks a lot easier to use thank you

- HR1000Z

Great bike rack! Good quality and easy to put bikes on. Another quality product from etrailer.com!

- HR1000Z

The first time I used it, the foam of the top racheting bars has ripped and the short 5 mile trip caused the paint on the top bar to be scratched thru to the metal. Very disappointing. I may try to duct tape the foam back together. But to be safe, you should put some cloth or material where the top locking hook and the bike make contact. It's a hassle, and I'm annoyed by the damage to my bike, so I rate this as 3 star, since it did seem sturdy.

  • Will Bikes With Fenders Work on Hollywood Racks HR1000Z Sport Rider 2-Bike Rack
    Because the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000Z 2 bike rack holds the bikes by the bottom of the wheels and the frame top tube, the fact that the women's bike has a fender will not affect the fit to the rack in the slightest. If the women's bike has a step through frame, you might find it easier to use a frame adapter bar like part # HRBA-PRO. The adapter bar spans the distance between the seat post and the handlebar gooseneck, providing a level surface for the racks bike retention hook...

    I have a possible solution for you. First, though, the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack for 2 Bikes, part # HR1000Z, will not work with your ElliptiGO 8C. The reason is because your bike doesn't have any tubes to latch onto, and the wheels are not large enough for a wheel-mount. Instead, you will need to use a fork-mount on your roof. For a single one of these, we have the SeaSucker Talon Roof Bike Rack, part # 298-BT1004. This uses suction to attach to your roof, so you won't...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Toyota Camry for Bike Rack
    The trailer hitch I would recommend for your 2015 Toyota Camry to carry the Hollywood Racks # HR1000Z would be the Draw Tite part # 36540 which is a confirmed fit and would work well. I prefer this hitch over the Curt hitch for your vehicle as it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap like the Curt does with a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached an install video for the hitch plus a review video for the bike rack on a similar 2015 Toyota Camry.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Nissan Xterra to Carry a Day 6 DreamE Electric Bike
    I would recommend going with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider, # HR1000Z, for your Day 6 DreamE electric bicycle, as long as the wheel base on the DreamE is not longer than 60 inches. I did a bit of research and could not come up with a definite number for your bikes wheel base, but I believe it is somewhere around 51 or 52 inches.

    The main differences are the weight capacities, shank sizes, and straps.

With that being said, I recommend using the Hollywood Racks RV Rider # HLY64FR instead. This has a lot of the same features as the Sport Rider # HR1000Z that you were looking at, but it uses clamps as opposed to hooks to secure the bikes....

  • Which Hollywood Racks Platform Bike Rack Could be Expanded to 4 Bike Rack
    The # HR1000Z is not expandable to a 4 bike rack. The Hollywood bike rack that is expandable is the SE2 part # HR1450Z which you'd need the expansion kit part # HR1475Z for. Not all of the Hollywood Racks are reinforced enough for carrying 2 more bikes which is why the # HR1000Z does not have that capability.
