sport rider fat bike

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


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

ratcheting hooks

The Sport Rider SE uses locking frame hooks to secure your bikes. The 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

1400 SE Wheel Holders

The wheel hoops are wider than standard cradles and will hold tires up to 5" wide. These hoops accommodate bicycles with wheelbases up to 60" by sliding along the horizontal arms. They are secured in place with easy-to-use hand knobs, and the Velcro-like hook-and-loop straps fasten the wheels to the hoops.


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

tilting

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.


folding

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.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle System

The rack installs in your hitch without the need for tools. Simply slide the shank into your receiver until the welded stop plate contacts the hitch. The stop plate saves you from getting on your hands and knees to align the pin holes while inserting the hitch pin. Once the pin is in place, attach the lock pod. Lastly, use the integrated anti-wobble handle on the front of the shank to tighten the rack inside your hitch receiver and prevent it from rattling. A second lever secures the two-bike extension to the base of the rack.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

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. For extra protection, the 8' long security cable wraps through the bike frames, connects to the hitch pin, and is secured to the pin by the hitch lock. 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 (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 (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.

We were excited to purchase this product. After LOTS of research, this massive rack appeared to check all the boxes: 4 bikes, regular or fat tire, RV-approved, tray-style, hitch mount, well-rated and affordable. After waiting a month for delivery, it finally arrived. My husband and I assembled it, not too difficult and directions were clear. We used it the very same day and headed north to camp for the weekend in the RV, 4 bikes included. Mind you, in addition to this rack, we own a Saris 2-bike hitch mount tray rack, and a "4 bike" (but not really) hitch mount crossbar rack, neither of which completely met our needs. Though this rack seemed like it had it all, in reality the mechanics of it are cumbersome and difficult to operate. We are sad and will have to live with it at this point I suppose b/c I'm sure there's no shipping this monster back. I like the ease and style of our Saris rack much better; on-loading and off-loading bikes is a cinch. On the Hollywood rack, the M-shaped frame levers are EXTREMELY difficult to slide up and down, as are the tire trays to move back and forth. There is a great amount of finagling needed to get bikes on and off this rack. Though I am patient, my husband hates it, swears and expected greater ease for the money. Because the M-shaped levers are stacked, one has to be very planful about the order and direction bikes are loaded on to this rack. If you don't need RV -approved, I might advise looking at the Kuat instead. 854689

Sturdy, stable, secure but pretty heavy and the hooks that are supposed to slide up and down to secure over the bike bar are difficult to slide. I never worry about the bikes once loaded, though. 798108

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

Does everything I wanted in a new bike rack: folds, tilts, holds bikes upright and converts from 4 to 2 bikes. Also has locks incorporated into frame with additional locking heavy duty cable. 614994

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 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 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 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 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

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

Review from a similar 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

Review from a similar 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

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

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.

Review from a similar 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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


Wanted to provide some feed back after using my 4 bike hollywood rack/cargo carrier for awhile. Bike rack is great. I have been able to haul kids bikes along with ours. No criticism other than I would use something other than hook loop system for tires, but it works. I have only recently tried to use the cargo carrier. A little disappointed. The way it is shaped really limits what I can put on it. Why do they not make them a standard rectangle? I can't fit a cooler, tote, or even my equipment bag because of the narrow 12 inch center section. I can't find a tote that will even fit in the 15"x17" sides. Cargo carrier is currently useless. If I could do it again I would have only bought the 4 bike rack. I know it will not make any difference but I like to express myself at times. Have a great day and put in a good word to the Hollywood engineers on their next cargo design. :) 477405


Comments
Chris, thank you for your review and business. The reason there is a narrow section in the cargo carrier/bike rack is to allow for clearance and loading of the bikes.

Do you mean the picture where the pedal of the bike is clearing the top of the cutout? As in the pedal would only hit it if it were in the down position? I would rather have the space and back the pedal above it myself. I am still going to vote that it is unnecessary.

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

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

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 Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


Lets be honest, there are better looking racks. But I work at etrailer.com and can use pretty much any bike rack in the world. When it came time to go on an adventure race I chose this rack to get my teams bikes there. When we got home one of my team mates bought one because he was so impressed. When it came time to go on a 12 hour road trip with my family I chose the Hollywood. It is a star. Not a Marilyn Monroe, more of a Sylvester Stallone. The thing is solid and it works really well. It is heavy, but any 4 bike rack is going to be on the heavy side. The option to remove the 2 bike extension is nice because it makes the rack easier to handle when you only need 2 bikes. The antirattle knob snugs the rack up in the hitch super tight. Having the cable lock and hitch lock included and keyed the same makes it easy to lock the bikes up when you stop for dinner. The folding feature uses pins and clips instead of the switches found on some other racks. The pins and holes were a bit tough to get aligned at first. I had to ask my wife to lift up on the end of the rack just a hair to get the pin started. She got chain grease on her and I quickly learned that asking for her help was not a good solution to my pin alignment problem. So I grabbed my drill and a bit that was sized the same as the pin hole and cleaned out the holes. About one minute later the pin was sliding in and out perfectly and my wife will never get greasy again. In a nutshell this rack is not the lightest, not the easiest and not the prettiest, but I love it. It is easy enough to use that it is not a hassle, it locks to keep the bikes safe, is a great price for the features and it is solid, very solid. You can see in the pictures that I have used this rack extensively and it still is working great. 102588

Hi, my question is whether you have any frame damage on your biks after your long trips. Vs. going with the t2 or hold up style.

Nate, I have used the rack on a few long trips, to Colorado, Wisconsin and to our adventure race. So far there has not been any frame damage. The hook that comes down on the frame has a pretty thick pad. One of the wheel clamp racks would prevent the possibility of frame damage, but I think it will be a long time before the pad on the Hollywood wears out and it is an issue.

Are there any issues with putting carbon fiber frames on this rack?

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

I bought a truck and went to a tailgate pad. I sold the rack. It worked well. Thanks

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Great! Still no issues Ill note its very hard to tilt and untilt the rack with two or more bikes, but I suppose if you have 2+ bikes you should have 2+ people to help do the lifting. I still havent tried the additional 2-bike extension.

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


Excellent bike rack, very well made easy to put on and take off. I use a rubber mallet to tap the pieces that need adjusted when changing bikes or tightening the anti-sway inside hitch mount. 911277

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


I've owned the carrier for 1 year now and it continues to prove to be a great purchase! The 2 bike portion stays on our SUV year round but when there is a need to transport 3 or 4 bikes at one time, the extender easily attaches and gives us the ability to do so. Definitely a quality product for the price! 898250

  • 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.

  • 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 # S64FR 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Can the Yakima OverHang Carry Heavy Downhill Electric Mountain Bikes
    I have a solution for you, and while you could use the Yakima HangOver 4 # Y02484 on a van without any issues, it only has a capacity of 37.5-lbs per bike. For this reason, it's not going to be able to be used this to carry bikes your downhill electric mountain bikes that are 48-lbs. Instead, I recommend using the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HR1400Z or the Sport Rider SE for Fat Tire Bikes # # HR1400Z-FB, which can carry bikes up...

  • Is There a 4-Bike Hollywood Racks Platform Rack that Can Reduce Down to a 2 Bike Rack
    Hollywood Racks makes really great 4-bike platform racks like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bikes # HR1400Z-FB but there isn't a way to convert the Trail Rider # HR200Z to a 4 bike rack as it is not expandable. So best option currently would be the # HR1400Z-FB. With this rack you could reduce it down to a 2 bike rack if ever needed.

  • Would Swagman XTC4 Have Clearance to Fold Up in Hitch of 2013 Ford Flex
    In order for the Swagman XTC4 bike rack part # S64665 to have clearance to fold up when installed in a vehicle hitch there needs to be less than 3-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear edge of the rear bumper. If you have that clearance on your 2013 Ford Flex this rack would easily fit and fold up. The Hollywood Racks like the # HR1400Z-FB are pretty similar in overall design to the Swagman racks but they are made just a little more solid. They don't move as much...
