SportRider SE Hitch Bike Rack

The Sport Rider Special Edition platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry up to 4 fat bikes on the rear of your vehicle. This versatile rack is easy to use, and it features locking frame hooks and wheel trays specifically designed for fat tire bikes, so you can quickly load and unload your bikes. A locking hitch pin with an anti-rattle system tightens the rack's shank to your hitch receiver to prevent it from rattling around inside the receiver.


1400 SE 2-Piece

The Sport Rider SE consists of a two-bike base unit and a removable two-bike extension unit, allowing you to use the carrier as either a two- or four-bike rack. The 2 pieces also make the rack easy to handle and install because you can slide the base into your hitch and secure it before adding the extension.


Locking, Ratcheting Hooks

1400 SE Hooks

Constructed of rugged steel with a sleek black powder coat finish, the Sport Rider SE uses locking frame hooks to secure your bikes. The ratcheting hooks are easily adjusted along the vertical mast and lock securely in place. The push buttons allow the hooks to slide up the ratcheting system to allow for bike removal. The lock cores keep the hooks from being moved up or down on the mast to deter theft. The hooks are different sizes and each one functions independently, meaning that each two-bike unit can hold 2 bikes of the same or different heights.


Adjustable Wheel Holders

1400 SE Wheel Holders

The wheel holders are wider than standard cradles and will hold tires up to 5" wide. These holders accommodate bicycles with wheelbases up to 60", and you can adjust the wheel hoops by sliding them along the horizontal arms. They are secured in place with hand knobs. Velcro-like hook-and-loop straps secure your bike's wheels to the holders.


1400 SE Wheel Holders

The rack also comes with 4 sets of standard-size holders, giving you the option of carrying 4 fat bikes, 4 standard bikes, or up to 4 of both.


Folding, Tilting Design

Sport Rider SE Tilting Spring Pin

The rack tilts, with or without bikes loaded, for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. Simply remove the pivot pin, pull the bottom quick-release spring pin, and lower the rack.


Sport Rider SE Folding Spring Pin

The rack also folds up against the back of your vehicle when it's not in use. To raise the rack, just pull the upper quick-release spring pin and lift.


Easy Installation with Locking Hitch Pin

The Sport Rider SE easily installs in your hitch with the included locking hitch pin. Just slide the shank into your receiver and insert the hitch pin. The frame hook locks and the hitch lock are conveniently keyed alike.


1400 SE Anti-Wobbles

An integrated anti-wobble handle on the front of the base unit tightens the rack's shank to your hitch receiver to prevent it from rattling around inside the receiver. You don't need to pull out a wrench every time you install the rack on your hitch - just turn the easy-to-access handle to keep the rack from rattling. A second lever secures the two-bike extension to the base of the rack.


The included 8' long cable attaches to the hitch pin to help secure 2 bikes to Sport Rider rack. The extension cable can be added to the 8' cable to help secure 4 bikes to the rack.


Add-On Adapters

Sport Rider SE Cargo Carrier

If you want to carry both 2 bikes and extra gear, an add-on cargo basket (HR1485 - sold separately) is available.


 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 (HRSW-ADP-2 - sold separately) are available.


If you want to transport 1 recumbent delta trike or 1 recumbent tadpole-style trike with the Sport Rider SE, you can use the HRTRK-ADP adapter (sold separately). Or if you want to transport 1 standard bike and either 1 recumbent delta trike, 1 recumbent tadpole-style trike, or 1 adult trike, then you can use the HRTRK-ADP-2 adapter (sold separately).


Note: The trike adapters can only be used with the Sport Rider SE's two-bike base unit.

Video Transcript for Hollywood Racks Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Today on our 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Rack for Fat Bikes. That's part number HR1400-FB. So, I've already got it loaded up just to give you an idea of what it looks like and how it's going to hold our bikes. Now not only does it hold fat bikes, but it's going to hold your standard bikes as well. So, you're going to get a set of cradles that'll hold both bikes.Right away, one of its best features is it can be tilted away, excuse me, from the vehicle with bikes loaded so it can access that rear hatch. Now how you do that is you remove the snapper pin here and you can kind of lift up on the rear-end of the bike rack to pull that out.

Now, please note that when you are loaded with all four bikes, it is gonna be quite difficult. I recommend getting a second set of hands to do this as it is going to be heavy. And as you can see, we can open up that rear hatch to remove any cargo, gear, groceries, anything we might have with us on our trip. And to put it back in place, again, a second set of hands is always best. Just left it up until it snaps in place and then we can replace that snapper pin.Real quick, before I go into how it holds our bikes, I'd like to mention that this can also be converted down to a two-bike rack.

You can see this little pin here in the center. If you loosen up your anti-rattle knob at the very back, this can be pulled out and then it's a two-bike rack. This is gonna be less weight for you to carry. It's gonna give you more clearance and it's less of a hassle to drive around with with just two bikes. So, a nice feature there.Now, there frame hook comes down on top of our top tube putting down pressure to the front and rear cradles and then a hook and loop strap keeps our bike in place.

Let's go ahead and take it off. We'll undo our straps first and then we can lift up on that frame hook. Now, Hollywood Racks does give us the option to remove a Phillips-head screw from behind the center mast which allows us to then completely remove those frame hooks, allowing us to make it easier to take that bike off. And when that's done, we can actually fold it down to the right and then we have nothing in the way. For demonstration purposes, I'm going to go ahead and keep that in place.

You can still remove it just . Excuse me. You can still remove it this way, but it makes it a little bit more difficult. And then what I like to do is just replace those hook and loop straps. That way, they're not hanging around or on the road. Then we'll grab some measurements.So overall, to our Grand Cherokee, we've added about 48 inches. If we we're to remove the two-bike extension, we just have the two-bike, it'd be about 29 and a half inches. Now, our closest point is going to be about eight and a half inches here. At the very back for our ground clearance, about 27 inches. And then on that two-bike, about 24 and a half inches.Now, the nice thing is these centers masts do fold down for storage. Just remove that pin, then you can reinsert like so. And with them down, you can get into that rear hatch without anything interfering. Now, you can stow it like this while you're driving around town if you'd like but I recommend folding it up which is going to give us more clearance at the back. So, this is how it stows. You pull that quick-release pin. We'll fold it up and as you can see, it's going to give a lot more room back here. This is ideal for pulling in your garage or in a tight spot. Grab a few more measurements here.With it folded up, we're about 16 and a half inches here and our closest point is gonna be . If we we're to go forward, I'd say it's about . About here, I'd say about seven inches and then our ground clearance underneath our shank here is about 18 inches. Now, it's meant for two inch by two inch receivers only. The pin and lock is included. It's also keyed alike to our frame hooks, so we don't have to carry around a bunch of keys. Once the pin and lock goes through, we come back to our anti-rattle lever. This is going to remove all the play and rattle from out bike rack so it's a nice solid ride for our two bikes or our four bikes. As you can see, give it a good shake there. I'm shaking the whole Jeep, so it's nice and solid.Well that being said, that's gonna complete our test for the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE platform-style four-bike rack for Fat Bikes, part number HR1400-Z-FB on our 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Great rack for Fat Tire Electric Bikes. I transported 2 Rad Rovers and 1 Trail Viper from Florida to Michigan and back with no issues. The only recommendation I have is they should add a Tail Light option to the Rack since most vehicles brake lights will not be visible if you have the bikes covered. I added my own trailer light kit and it worked great. See Photo. 500151

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


I was nervous buying a rack costing half as much as a premium brand. I was afraid I was buying something flimsy or cheaply built. Not the case. I took four bikes 1000 miles and it worked perfectly. It’s heeeeaaavyyy.... once you get it in the hitch, though, that’s a good thing. The bikes were secure, and it has a tightening system to hold it firmly in the hitch: there was very little wobble. I’ve never used the higher prices racks like the Kuat, so I can’t compare them. What I can say is that this rack is solid. If you can get over NOT buying the name brand, like Thule, Kuat, etc, you can save a lot of money and feel confident your bikes are safe. 681713

Ordered it on Monday and it was here on Wednesday! I was able to put the 4 bike rake together by myself in about an hour. Easy to assemble and all the parts were included. Make well and is very sturdy. The back two bike section comes off every easily when not needed. The tilt down feature is easy to use and I was able to open the hatch door on my 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee 657156

Very sturdy bike rack. Just takes sometime to get every bike set-up on the rack. Could be a little more user friendly. But for the price it will be a great rack for our family of 4. 565169

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


Nice, solid bike rack. Props to e-trailer for the free shipping as this thing was heavy. The bike rack was fairly easy to assemble. the only issue I had was that one of the stop screws that prevent the wheel platforms from sliding off wouldn't go in all the way. Not sure if the hole wasn't drilled properly or if I cross-threaded the screw, but I could only screw it in halfway. It's secure (and no one will ever notice), it was just a minor frustration when putting the rack together. The bikes are extremely stable on the rack and the rack is extremely stable when properly attached to the vehicle. They aren't budging. It took a few tries to figure out the proper configuration for all 4 bike, but once I figured out that puzzle, loading and unloading is a snap. The 3rd bike is a bit tricky to get on. I'm happy with this purchase. It was more than i wanted to spend on a bike rack, but I'm glad I went with the higher quality. 145072

My husband gets frustrated very easily so imagine my surprise when this was installed with no complaints. It's very user friendly and I'm able to access the trunk without a problem. We have a Subaru outback. The bikes are secure and the rack easily adjusts to different size bikes. I love that you can adjust the rack to be smaller to carry 2 bikes. Everything about this rack is quality and easy to use. 216417

Hey Nicole, any issues with the rack clearance with a bike mounted touching the rear bumper? I have a 15 Outback. Thanks

Tony,We dont have any problems. There is a bit of space from the back bumper to the beginning of the rack. My initial thought was, why do they make the rack extend out so far? Then I realized it was necessary so you can fit between the car and rack. Once its tilted we have enough clearance to open the hatch. We have a 2011 outback

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


I have yet to use this rack, but I did want to offer some preliminary thoughts. First, etrailer shipped it quickly. The packaging was good with no damage to the rack despite some holes in the boxes. Etrailer also honored their price guarantee. The instructions (see link below or use http://www.etrailer.com/instructions.aspx?pn=HR1400 ) are not very good. The diagrams could have shown a better “exploded” view and detailed the parts better. The parts themselves are NOT labeled (well some have “L” or “S”, but you can see there are no parts S or L). Step 1.(3.) has you insert pin H6 and install clip R (a cotter pin) through the pin. Nope! Pins H6 and H5 are attached receiver tube H and neither uses a cotter pin - they both have attached clips. The cotter pin "R" is only used in Step 4. There stop screws (Figure 2c) but the instructions don’t tell you to use the included washers, washers also not detailed in the parts list. The multiple “L” pins have index guides that need to be aligned with the index holes on order to remove and insert them. So if you can’t get that “L” pin out, it needs to be rotated. There are other examples, but you get the idea. I ended up with and extra washer (a heavy washer) and a ring but I think everything is put together correctly. BE CAREFUL! If you get careless placing a bike between the vertical post and the car, and the bike slips, the bike’s handlebars could break the back glass on an SUV type vehicle. I learned this from experience, but fortunately I didn’t break the glass. The instruction say to position the bike’s frame so the hook rests on the lowest point of the top tube. This makes sense but forced me to rearrange the wheel holders because our bikes are so different and I wanted each bike set up in a certain slot. Other than that, everything feels solid and I look forward to using this for years to come. 297586

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


I debated between the HR1400 and Pro Series Q Slot and do not regret the HR1400. First, the package arrived one day early, but the shipping box was badly damaged. However, everything inside was packaged for the most part separately and nothing was damaged. So immediately put the rack together on my 1998 Dodge Pickup. The rack assembly was very quick and easy. I read a lot of reviews indicating the instructions are poor. They are not the best but honestly the rack was very easy to put together. Be sure to build the rack off of your hitch. Once built I was impressed!! Very sturdy and not a bad looking rack. I threw four mountain bikes right away onto the rack and they fit great. It did take me about 25 minutes to get the bikes on as you will find that you'll need to figure the best order for them to go on considering frame size etc.. I think if I were to do it again I would be able to do it in half the time. I took the bikes off the rack in about 5 minutes or less. I have not yet taking the bikes out as I just recieved the bike rack yesterday afternoon but was excited to build the rack and load the rack. But I can tell you that I see no problem with how it will travel down the road as this thing is solid! I did grab the rack while loaded with bikes and shook the hell out of it to see of the bikes would move. There was no wiggle or indication the rack or bikes were not secure. I choose the HR1400 because I need a rack that will fold up and also tilt. I also felt that the reviews were best on multiple websites not just etrailer. I also noticed that etrailer had by far the best customer service reviews which was important in case I had problems with the rack. You can not go wrong with the HR1400! You can not go wrong purchasing any equipement from etrailer.com as they did replied to a email very quickly amd sent out early. Believe me...this is an excellent bike rack. Safe riding! 499176

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


I have been looking for a platform bike rack that can hold 4 bikes, and I found etrailer the best place to search. Beside the wide selection, they have great videos, pictures, and Q/A sessions where a lot of information can be found. I chose the Hollywood HR1400 over the Swagman XTC-4 mainly due to its capability to tilt away from the car, and that the XTC would not properly close to the upright position on my 2013 Odyssey. The service from etrailer was excellent. I placed the order on Wednesday, and that very afternoon Bridget called me to tell me that the order was received, but a small problem is that they did not have the product on stock. Since I was going down to Florida for vacation, it was important to get the product within a certain timeframe (wanted to ship the product to FL instead of Canada, where I live). When I told Bridget my dilemma, she was very helpful, and ended up shipping the unit from a different warehouse in MO, and it only cost me $14 in shipping instead of free shipping. But, I got the product the following Monday! Great service! I just got home last night, and hardly could wait to assemble the rack today. The assembly was easy, it took about 30-35 minutes. The instructions were helping, but the product is self explanatory too. I loaded the bikes, and took a short ride. The rack is solid, which is what I thought the first time I assembled it. The bikes were not rattling at all. It is easy to fold it up and down. It actually is close to the car in the upright position, but it clears the bumper and the tailgate as you can see it on the pictures. I was a bit worried about ground clearance, since the Odyssey's hitch is kind of low, but there is no problem there either, as the rack has quite a bit of elevation from the main shank. Below some measurements for those who have the same car, and thinking of buying this rack (so far I did not find this information on the website): Ground clearance at main shank: 9" Ground clearance at the end of 4 bike unit: 18" Distance between bumber and closest part of rack when upright: 2" Distance between tailgate and closest part of rack when upright: 3" Distance between bumber and closest part of rack when folded down: 8" All in all, I highly recommend etrailer for your towing needs, they are a reputable and reliable company, I just wish we would have more like them on the web. I will definitely come back if I am in need of similar products, and will recommend to my friends. Great job Etrailer Team! 192302

You want sturdy? This is your rack. It is well built! Takes about 90 minutes for an ordinary woman to assemble. Plan on getting some time learning which knob or lever does what. Not hard, but don't be in too much of a hurry. It's on the back of a 2014 Subaru Outback in Texas. It clears the bumper fine and folds up nicely with the four bike extension on it. I do have to allow for more gentle driving to escape dragging on dips in driveways. Haven't taken my trip yet, but happy with the purchase and astounded by the helpful employee and faster-than-promised delivery. A totally wonderful experience. That almost never happens! 620168

Great communication from seller. Fast shipping, particularly since it's free. Item arrived and was in good shape. Heavy and awkward to carry so be careful how far you have to lift it. Don't ask your wife to pick it up. Not very difficult to put together, although slowed down by cumbersome instructions with poor pictures and it took time to identify each part as the correct one. Good quality unit, although some packing styrofoam was glued to bars leaving several stretches of white, sticky goo on the upwards facing bars where the tire holders slide. Makes adjusting the tire holders more difficult. Overall a good product and handles the 4 bikes well. Will see over time how it holds up to consistent use. 105153

A year into its use and as good as new. Super sturdy and the bikes really feel secure. I've used it with 1, 2, 3 and 4 bikes and adapting configs is pretty easy. Fit really nice on my Pilot (shown mounted but folded in the pic). Oh, great support too when I first assembled it. I called up with a quick question and spoke immediately to a live knowleadgeble person. 266198

Just installed the 2-bike half on my hitch for the first time. The rack came in a gazillion pieces and took about an hour to set up for the first time, but I'm very happy so far. I don't have much to say that wasn't covered in other reviews but I'll note I had no problem opening the hatch on my CRV with the rack tilted down and loaded with and adult size bike. 655906

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


I've only just received my HR1400 Hollywood rack, assembled it, installed in on my car, and loaded it with 4 of our bikes, but I'm very impressed so far. It's exactly what I was hoping for. It is heavy, but it's extremely sturdy. I found it very easy to mount on my car and remove when I do so taking advantage of the fact it breaks into 2 pieces (which it does very easily). I'm looking forward to using it on our next outing. By the way, etrailer.com rocks! You had the best price on this rack and it was sitting on my doorstep 2 days after ordering (ordered Wed afternoon and delivered Friday). In addition, I had no issues with the packaging or the contents being damaged as a few others have mentioned in reviews. 122412

Ive owned this rack for a year now and I still love it. I would definitely buy it again if I ever had the need. Clearances are fine on my vehicle. I have no issue with the Velcro-like straps. The only issue I have is that I cant open the back of my car when bikes are loaded. But honestly, I dont find that to be a huge deal.

Great bike rack, significantly cheaper than other tray-style mounts. This rack does carry a kids 16" bike (must buy the adapter from e-trailer), which is one of the reasons why we went with the Hollywood Rack. For the adult bike, we used a foam noodle on the top post to prevent damage to the gear cables. There was some paint damage to the rack that I am assuming occurred during shipping that I'll need to touch up with a can of spray-paint, but other than that, I am pleased with the rack! 616089

Like the product very much but you cannot open the hatch with the bikes on. I have a Toyota Sienna and you have to lower the vertical bar also in order to open the back hatch. There is a tilting option but with four bikes and the weight of the rack itself, it would take two people to tilt the rack down. But even at the tilted angle with bikes on, you cannot open the hatch. Otherwise, no complaints. 132756

Hi Bob,We have a Toyota Sienna 2014. Can you open the hatch without the bikes on the rack? If yes, how would you do that?Thanks.

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


I really wanted to like this bike rack, but it presented too many issues to give it more than a 3 star review. The rack was packaged well enough(although one of the upright posts was scratched up somehow) and I thought the instructions were pretty darn easy to follow...not sure about some of these reviews listing assembly issues, there's really not that much to the assembly: slide some parts together, secure with nuts and bolts, and everything else slides on with clamps and cotter pins. It is HEAVY. When fully assembled for 4 bikes, this thing is not easy to move around. That being said, I guess heavy means strong. The first issue I ran into was with the 2 bike adapter. I could not get rid of the wobble between the main carrier and the 2 bike adapter. It says not to crank too hard, and I didn't want to strip it. But I cranked it pretty good and still there was play. Wobble between car and main carrier was fine...nice and tight. Getting the bikes on was a major headache. First, it is a very tight fit between bikes. Pedals hitting each other, hitting the upright posts, pedals getting caught in other bikes spokes, trying to fit bikes under raised clamps, etc. Biggest problem I encountered was with my kids bikes. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but I did not see any "minimum requirements" for bike/wheel size, only maximum. I have 2 kids bikes with 20" wheels, and they simply did not fit correctly. Not only did the clamps not come down far enough to secure the bikes, but the detailers on both bikes were coming into contact with the wheel holders. I ended up using mini bungee cords to secure up the detailers and I clamped down onto the bike seats instead of the horizontal post. I reached out to eTrailer seeing what they had to say, and they recommended purchasing several additional parts in order to rectify the issues...$90 worth of parts! No thanks. Unfortunately, I will have to make do...returning is not feasable with a 20% restocking fee. One more note...tilting the rack up against the back of your vehicle is nearly impossible with 1 person. The pin is up close to the vehicle, and you can't reach it from the back of the rack where you'd lift from. Kudos to eTrailer service(Bryan) for trying to assist. Very prompt and communicative. 500478

Don, thank you for your review. If your kids bike wheels are not fitting in the wheel holders, I would suggest getting the Hollywood wheel hoop adapter part # HRSW-ADP-2
Kids Bike Wheel Hoop Adapters for Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack - Qty 2
$40.30
. With bikes with alternative frames especially childrens bikes, the ratcheting arms do not have a top cross tube to go over. You will need an adapter bar such as part # HRBA-PRO
Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes
$34.99
to attach to the frame and give the ratcheting arm on the bike rack a contact point. This Hollywood rack part # HR1400 is 74 pounds as a 4 bike carrier. The lightest 4 bike platform rack we carry is the Saris freedom part # SA4414B
Saris Freedom 4 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount - Tilting
$428.95
. The freedom is 53 pounds.

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


I just used this on my 2012 Honda Pilot for a road trip over 700 miles. I hauled my 29er along with my kids bikes (a 20" & a 24"). It works great for hauling different sizes of bikes together. It was rock solid and the bikes were absolutely stable and secure. It takes a few minutes to figure out the best configuration for your specific bikes when you first set it up but once you have a system its super quick and easy. This rack is heavy and solid and should last forever (except for maybe the velcro straps which do seem sufficient for now and would be easy to replace if needed). Even though it is heavy I am still able to carry it around and install/remove it by myself (5'4-130 lb woman). I love that the locks were included making this a great value. I also love that its two separate parts so I can use it as a 2 bike carrier or a 4 bike carrier when needed. Many times I am only hauling one bike and dont need a ginormous 4 bike carrier. Etrailers shipping was super fast!! The only thing I can criticize is the terrible instructions but if you look at the pictures on the box you can figure it out fairly quickly, it really wasnt difficult. Overall, I am very, very happy with this bike rack! 163356

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


For the price I give it 5 stars although 4.5 is more realistic. So far, I have only used the two bike carrier and have travelled well over 500 miles. I have yet to attach the extended carrier and used it with all four bikes but I doubt that would change any of my opinions. I like that all of the locks are on the same key (hitch bolt, slide down locks and cable lock. I love that the cable lock was included. The hooks are well padded although I can see a bit of black rubbing off on my cross bar. This doesn't bother me. The Velcro straps work well, I just wonder how time and wear will treat them. The carrier is solid and doesn't have any movement up and down, but it does have a little sideways movement. This isn't a big deal to me. Getting the bike closest to the vehicle on the rack is challenging, but doable once you learn how. The ability to tilt the rack away from the vehicle is great and well as the ability to fold it up. It is solidly built and has significant weight to it. The adjustability of the wheel wells is very nice. You should be able to place any style and size bikes on it with no issues (except for fat tire). I've seen some of their older models and this one is much better. 695663

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


This rack works perfect with our 2015 Dodge Durango. I am able to lower it down and fully open the rear hatch which was the main reason I chose this rack. It is heavy, but the system to tighten it down in the receiver eliminates any play or wobble. I can load 4 bikes in less than 5 minutes!! I fabricated a bracket to also hold my kids trail-a-bike. 655410

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


thank you for the follow up. The bike hitch was delivered ahead of expectations and in good order. Given its weight the outside packaging (pictures attached) was damaged on the corners but the actual internal contents was well packaged enough that no damage to the product occurred. Have installed and used it on MTB trip already and it works great...love the optionality to have either a 4 bike to 2 bike setup. 352014


Comments
I have used the bike hitch a lot in both the 2 x bike and 4 x bike configuration. Both adult and kids bike sizes. Once you get the spacing setup loading and unloading is easy. Travels behind the vehicle really well and does not sway given the way it integrates with the locking pin system. Very happy with it.

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


The quality of the trailer hitch and assembly is excellent. Very happy with the quality and the purchase price. Given I was installing on a 2004 Honda Odyssey in 2015, I did have difficulty with the pre-drilled holes and threads on the frame of the vehicle. I made several attempted to clean the threads but was unsuccessful. I eventually took the hitch assembly to a local installer and they put it on for $[...]. The instructions provided for self installation were very clear and straight forward. I use my hitch assembly to haul bikes around to various triathlons. I purchased the bike carrier separately and it slides right into the hitch opening and locks on. 246026

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


Pure awesomeness! But I’ll remind you now, lest you forget in your enthusiasm: the pin’s not stuck, you secured it down with that crank as one of the first steps. No hammer needed. Just sayin). I can’t wait for the next trip. No more fighting forever to get the handlebars untangled while I try to fit all the bikes on. Which I contend is IMPOSSIBLE on those stupid hanging rack types. No more wheels flopping in the breeze potentially scratching my car. No more removing the wheels because the bike shop sold me a carrier that was too low for my minivan. No more bikes bouncing up and down while I drive. No more scraping the exit curbs. AND I still have a decent view out of the back up camera/screen!! I was able to open the hatch with the bikes tilted. You have to hold the bike closest back a little. I let it do it by itself and the auto open forced it way through instead of stopping and it did scratch the car. But closing it, I stayed at the handle bars and gently pushed and it cleared fine. And it locks to the car. No more fear my rack will get stolen. And comes with another lock for the bikes. Sure a bottle opener would be a cool feature. I’ll rubberbad one on. It’s SO worth the money! Stop comparing and put it in the cart. By the way, the pics only show it set up with two racks. I love that I can customize it to the number of us going out for the day. 503456

  • Bike Rack Solution for Carrying Electra Amsterdam E-Bikes
    The Kuat NV 2.0 part # NV22G-NA22G is a really great bike rack but it isn't ideal for bikes with fenders like your Electra Amsterdam bikes since the fenders would interfere with the arms that grab the wheels. So your best option is a platform bike rack that grabs the bikes by the top tube of the bike frame like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Bike Platform Rack # HR1400Z-FB. Hollywood Racks bike racks are made to be very solid and last a very long time. They are also stable in the...

  • Recommended Platform Style Rack for Carrying 4 Bikes With Toyota Sienna
    Fat bike tires are generally greater than 3-1/2 inches in width, while the # S64692 Swagman Quad you're asking about can handle tires up to 3 inches wide so the Quad wouldn't work well for your needs. No worries, though. We have the perfect bike rack that'll work just fine for you. I can highly recommend the # HR1400Z-FB SportRider SE. The rack can handle 4 fat bikes weighing up to 50 lbs apiece, which is an excellent capacity. Hollywood Racks makes an extremely durable bike rack, and...

  • Difference Between Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400-FB and # HR1400Z-FB
    Hollywood Racks basically just upgraded the old part number with the new # HR1400Z-FB by reinforcing parts of the rack to make it a bit stronger overall and made the mast square instead of round. Functionally it is the exact same rack but the capacity was increased from 45 lbs per bike to 50 lbs per bike.

  • Best 4 Bike Platform Rack Recommendation for Long Wheelbase Bikes with Fenders
    For bikes that have fenders you want to use a bike rack that grabs the bikes by the frame and not the wheel/tire. The Kuat NV part # NV22G-NA22G that you referenced is a great rack but it's not ideal for fendered bikes. Instead you'd want something like the Hollywood Rack Sport Rider # HR1400Z-FB which would be a great option. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well. It can also carry bikes with up to a 60 inch wheelbase too.

  • Carrying 4 Bikes on Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Rack using EcoHitch on 2014 Honda Civic
    Although the EcoHitch # 306-X7235 has a 2 inch receiver, the vehicle itself is rated for a Class I hitch with a very limited tongue weight capacity. Because of this limited capacity, all the bike rack manufacturers agree that no more than 2 bikes should be carried on a bike rack installed on a Class I rated vehicle. The # 306-X7235 hitch has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, which means that the maximum amount of weight the hitch will support is 200 lbs. The Hollywood Racks # HR1400Z-FB...
