sport rider

The Sport Rider Special Edition platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry 4 bikes 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. 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 make the rack easy to 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

wheel hoops

The wheel 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.


Fat Bike Wheel Cradles

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


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.


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

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.

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.

Kevin B.

5/18/2015

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?



by:

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!



by:

This gets carried on a 2010 Touareg (gas).

I've
never owned a bike rack. This one is awesome. It holds 2 kids bikes and 2 adult bikes no sweat. Though, one of the kids bikes is a bit small and we have to strap it down extra to make sure it won't go anywhere, and make sure it's loaded in between other bikes to sandwich it in place. It won't be a problem when the little guy gets the next size up.

This carrier is HEAVY. I'm no slouch, and I still will install it in 2 pieces rather than carrying the mondo unit assembled out to the car.

Lowering and raising is easy, but may require 2 people depending on if you have bikes loaded or not, or how strong you are.

Flipping up for empty carry on the back of the vehicle is easy.

Everything feels well made and no-nonsense.

The ratchet action of the vertical pieces is great, and sometimes too great.. so don't over-do it or you might struggle to free your bike from its clutches.

No noises while driving, seems very rigid/solid overall in the Curt hitch we picked up here on etrailer.com

Overall, as a first time bike rack owner, I love it.



by:

Great prices and loads of information on the website to assist in making a decision on what bike rack to buy for my needs. The rack arrived quickly after ordering.

My Hollywood Rack has worked out even better than expected. I am unsure if this is true for other SUVs, but on my BMW X3, the rear hatch opens with the Hollywood rack in the up position while not carrying bikes. This is a huge bonus as I was not expecting this feature and have left my bike rack on the car full time over this spring and summer knowing I could easily get access to the back of my SUV. I am in an apartment building where several people have car bike racks that require them to lower the rack every time they want to open the rear hatch in their vehicles. One of the main reasons I went with the Hollywood Rack is two of my bikes have fenders and a majority of racks do not work with bikes with fenders as they clamp onto the tires. The no-rattle system is excellent and the bike rack does not tilt right or left in the hitch mount like some of the super expensive racks I see in the apartment garage. The overall build of the rack is sturdy. I am very pleased with my Hollywood Rack and the purchases I have made through etrailer.

This rack is incredibly solid/strong and holds bikes securely. Easy to modify if using different bike sizes. Like the modular feature of using only part of the rack for two bikes but quickly can connect the back section to add 2 more bikes. It’s very intuitive. Have never seen any other Hollywood racks over the year and it far exceeds my expectations.
I did call the company with a suggestion to create a hole or bracket to keep the hitch pin when it’s not on vehicle so it wouldn’t get lost. Don’t hesitate to buy one.



by:

Such a fabulous bike rack!! The rack is simple to mount onto the van’s hitch. It’s easy to add or take off the outer rack either before or after putting it on the hitch. The two part design is a great feature for taking a bike to the shop for repair, for when it’s just the two of us, or we can quickly add the second half for two more bikes. It folds up against the back of the van easily and securely. When needed it holds four adult bikes without any problems. Bikes are SO enjoyable to load onto this rack - way better than racks that support the bike by the frame. I have a Y frame bike so it was always challenging to load it onto a traditional rack. The tire supports move to accommodate any size bike. Bikes that have the lower frame get mounted closer to the vehicle for each section of the rack. The rack is stable when driving, even when fully loaded. The locking feature is nice, especially for when we’re away from home and the bikes stay on the rack overnight. Be careful when lifting as the rack itself is heavy.

Id buy it again in a heartbeat! Were about to take our third trip to the beach a 900 mile round trip with four bikes using this rack. Weve owned it for at least two years and it has stayed in great working order. The tire adjustments are still easy to use as are the locking mechanisms. We use it throughout the summers for day trips and its so simple to use our kids can get the bikes loaded.

I've been using a Yakima RidgeBack 4-Bike for many years however I needed to find a bike rack that would transport my wife's new Trek Verve +2 Lowstep E-Bike. Since it is a Step-through and weighs 52 lbs. with the battery, I was uncomfortable hanging the bike off the RidgeBack. I typically only transport 2 bikes however occasionally need to pack up 3 or 4 bikes. After much research, I decided on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE4. I loved the fact that I could take off the extension and make it a two back rack and appreciated the price. I was however concerned the E-Bike might be too heavy as the specifications note a 50 lb. per bike limit so I reached out directly to Hollywood Bikes. I asked if they thought it'd be alright to place the E-Bike closest to the vehicle with the battery removed. I heard back from them within 24 hours and they agreed, with the battery removed it would be fine. I ordered the SE4 on Monday morning and it arrived Thursday. It was well packaged and easy to assemble using the instructions. I had absolutely no issues and it went together perfectly. The rack is of very good quality and sturdy even when loaded up. I really like that the bikes can be locked down and everything, including the supplied cable is keyed alike. I was able set it up for only 3 bikes as that is all we're taking to Florida next week. I'll follow up after our trip.

A year later and my Sport Rider SE4 is still working great! Use mainly for two bikes but have hauled four several times.

I was looking for a 4 bike hitch mounted rack of this style. My main goal was to have it fit my 05 Jeep Wrangler with 31 x 10.5 tires. I wanted to make sure the rack would rest in the folded up positon when not in use. I also wanted the flexibility to have only a 2 bike mount for when I ride solo.

I emailed etrailer and they were quick with a response and included a video as well. I placed the order a week ago Saturday, and my rack was delivered ahead of schedule. I was blown away by the service I received from etrailer, and am very pleased with the rack. I found it easy to install and it totally does what I need it to do.

Thank you etrailer. Keep up the great job.

Scott

I love it. It is a breeze to put it on and take it off. When it is on, I feel secure knowing that everything is locked to my vehicle. The rack itself when not in use tilts up and fits perfectly against the spare tire on my Jeep.



by:

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.

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.



by:

This rack has all the bells and whistles of a much more expensive rack at a significantly better price. My 14 year old son put it together easily from the pictures (I had a harder time following the instructions) but between the two of us it didn’t take more than 30 minutes. It is super solid, holds the bikes very securely, and I love the built in locks for each bike, which you pay a lot more for with other brands. It’s just really solid and well designed. The photo shows the 2 rack configuration on my 2018 Honda Pilot. The rear door is able to open without having to put the rack down. My son and I are exploring the great mountain biking around Fort Collins and it’s great to have the bikes on in a minute and go. Thanks Noah for making this suggestion!

Just received my Hollywood Rack last week and put it together and used it this weekend. The rack seems solid, easy to load bikes and the rack seems to secure the bikes well to the rack. I have not driven far with 4 bikes yet but with 2 bikes I've had no issues at all. Looking forward to years of service with the rack.

The rack arrived on time and in good shape from etrailer.com, no problems at all.

All is well. Thank you!



by:

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.

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



by:

This bike rack came quickly (thanks etrailer!) and was easy to put together. Just purchased an e-bike and needed a rack that would hold one. We put both my road bike and the e-bike on the rack and both fit perfectly on my 2019 Subaru Outback. I like that everything it adjustable for any bike.

The rack is heavy and I was concerned about putting it on the car and taking it off myself but I managed. I like that you can tilt the rack to make it easier to get the bike on. We have a driveway with an incline so we were concerned about how low the rack was but we were able to go down and come back up with and without bikes on. (Just went super slow)

I had never bought a Hollywood rack before so I was a bit nervous but now I’m a huge fan!

eTrailer is an excellent company to do business with.



by:

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.



by:

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!



by:

So far I am very impressed with the quality of this rack. The box arrived undamaged and the rack was in perfect condition. The finish is very nice and robust powder coat. Assembly was a breeze with the included instructions. As other have mentioned it is very strong and a bit heavy.. I am 6'2 200lbs and have no trouble handling it at all by myself as long as I do it in 2 pieces. The rack is very easy to separate into 2 pieces. I haven't used it yet buy I have no doubt it will work splendidly. I hung it using a hitch mount bracket that I ordered from Amazon. I was able to hang it underneath some 12 inch shelves and all I had to do was reverse the 2 bike rear section to allow the rack to clear the shelves. Fits like a glove.

Excellent 4 bike platform rack in a 2+2 configuration

Very sturdy rack. Assembly instructions could have been better though installation was straightforward. Encountered a small issue with the placement of 4 bikes (17" MTB, 15" WMN MTB, 13" MTB and 24" dialed kids) because of the geometry of the bike's top tubes but after figuring out optimal placement and sizing the width of the wheel holders correctly, bikes were generally easy to get in and out.

Installed on back of '17 Highlander XLE attached to an etrailer Hitch Receiver (Item # e98844). Folds up nicely when not in use. Not getting access to truck might be an issue for some buyers but not a concern for me. Comes down to the price/feature/quality conundrum and there really isn't too many in this price range that offers a 2+2 configuration and highly rated by buyers.

Great delivery service from etrailer.



by:

Just received my rack and assembled it. I had a small issue with the bolt of the second rack but got it through eventually with a little hammering. Loaded all four bikes on the rack today and took it for a test drive. Very strong and steady. It looks really nice and so far I like it.

Rack is still solid and I like it very much. No issues at at all.

I was a Thule rack owner at one time, but needed to upgrade to a tray rack that could hold 4 bikes. I was skeptical about anything other than a Thule. Even though the Thule was much pricier, I wanted to stick with what I was comfortable with. I was convinced after discussing different options with a customer rep that this rack would be just as good and perform to my expectations...

This rack has exceeded my expectations (more to follow). My Thule rack was very mobile while driving even when I would tighten the receiver pin to the rack. It would sway every time I would hit a bump, turn a corner or accelerate/brake hard. The other downfall was my former Thule would not tilt down to allow access to my cargo area of either one of our SUVs. It was also a bit heavier as well.
However...this Hollywood rack has been performing better than I expected. I would definitely advise anyone who is looking for a quality bike rack that can convert from 2 to 4 bikes to seriously consider this rack. Here are the following reasons:

1: This rack barely moves when you tighten it to the receiver. It is solid. It only moves slightly, and even then I have to really watch the rack in order to catch it moving.

2: The receiver pin, vertical clamps, and bike cable are all keyed alike (4 keys)
3: Rack is heavy duty but light enough for a small female to handle and install on a vehicle.

4: Assembly is easy enough for a grade school child to perform. Took me all of 30 minutes including finding parts my daughter was "stealing".

5: The product was shipped in the product box which was inside of another heavy duty cardboard box.

6: The tilting rack clears enough room for my cargo door on my VW Touareg.

7: The bikes are held on very securely and do NOT move once locked into position.

etrailer has excellent customer service.

I researched bike racks that can carry four bikes for a long time before settling on this rack. I was very nervous about this one given the price is about $400-$500 less than other comparable racks. However, I am very pleased with this after our first weekend using it to haul all four of our family's bikes.

Assembly was relatively straightforward. Upon opening, I was very pleased with how "solid" all the parts are. I would have preferred some exploded drawings or some with a wider perspective of the rack as sometimes it took a few minutes staring at the drawings to understand the next step. I was able to put the entire rack together in about an hour or so. I used my own ratchet set and wrenches rather than the wrench included. You'll have a much easier time if you use quality tools rather that the basic wrench included. We went ahead and put all the bikes on the rack prior to our first trip so that we could take the time to adjust where all the tire supports should go. This process took a bit of time (probably 30 minutes or so for four bikes).

Our first trip with the bikes was great. Since we took the time to adjust all the tire supports after initial assembly, it took no time at all to get all the bikes on the rack. We drove about 30 miles for our first outing with the rack. The bikes rode very well with little movement on city streets and on the highway. We had no issues with the bikes rubbing each other or getting scratched due to movement as we have had with other racks that "hang" the bikes rather than set them in a tire support. We were hauling one men's bike, two women's bikes adult bikes and one kid bike with 20" wheels in the photos I have included in the review.

We have a 2018 GMC Yukon XL. We were able to completely open the window on the back hatch without tilting the rack downward. We did have to adjust the handlebars on the bike closest to the car to get full clearance. With the rack tilted down, we are able to get the back hatch open almost 75% of the way open. The only issue with tilting the rack fully loaded is it is very heavy, so you'll need two people (one to pull the pin and one to lift the rack). Removal of the rack was easy. It's heavy, but I was able to lift it without separating the rack into two pieces without any problem. You could separate the two and lift each separately to lighten the load.

I am very pleased with this purchase and cannot believe the quality for the price!



by:

I am very pleased with this rack. As you see in the picture I only assembled the 2 bike option. We bought the 4 bike option to be able to carry the grandkid's bikes when needed. This rack easily accomodated my Surly Big Dummy (60" wheelbase) and my wife's Xtracycle RFA electric bike. The only drawback is that it is a little bit clumsy to get the back bicycle onto the rack. Hopefully I will get the hang of it. The Rack is extremely stable. The hitch tightner works fabulous!



by:

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.

Love our new Hollywood rack! It was easy to assemble. It looks really solid and secure while driving. Bikes are quickly and easily loaded. Can’t wait to try it out with the cargo tray. One minor suggestion, please make the Velcro tire straps a little longer. They barely fit around the bike with the 3” tires.

  • Can Any 2 Inch Cargo Carrier be Inserted into the Back of Hollywood Sport Rider 2-Bike Rack
    When in 2-bike mode the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z is designed to only accept its cargo carrier and is not confirmed to work with other cargo carriers. That would make your best option # HR1400Z-85 which is the 2 and 4 bike version of the Sport Rider with the cargo carrier.

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Carry Fat Tire and Regular Tire Bikes on Same Carrier
    The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 # HR1400Z you referenced is designed to fit bikes with tires up to 3" wide, so this would work just fine if you're carrying smaller tire bikes. There is also the # HR1400Z-FB which is the same 4 bike rack but with the fat tire adapters included instead of the standard wheel holders; this rack designed specifically for fat tire bikes with 5" maximum width tires.

  • Will Mountain Bikes, Hybrids, and Beach Cruisers All Fit on Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack
    It is much easier to load 4 bikes on a platform style carrier such as the Sport Rider, # HR1400Z. Platform style racks like this can accommodate all different bike styles even if they are much different sizes or styles. You should have no trouble using this rack with your mountain bikes, hybrid, and beach cruiser. The wheel cradles are adjustable for different wheel bases and the hooks travel up and down the center masts for different frame sizes. I have included a link to a video review...

  • Can the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Carrier Be Tilted Down With Bikes Loaded
    I spoke with my contact at Hollywood Racks about the Sport Rider SE bike rack # HR1400Z. He stated that you can tilt the rack down with the bikes loaded. He also mentioned that it is most likely going to be a 2-person job: 1 person to hold/lift the bikes and 1 person to pull or insert the pin at the pivot point. I have included links to the installation instructions and a link to a video review of this rack for you.

  • Upright Bar Height on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1400
    I spoke to my contact at Hollywood Racks and he informed me that the upright bar, or vertical support post, of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Carrier # HR1400Z is 30 inches tall. I asked about how tall the maximum clamping height is and he said about 39 inches. Check out the review video I attached for this product as well.

  • Can 2002 Ford F-250 Tailgate be Lowered w/Hollywood Racks HR1400 Bike Rack Installed and Arms Folded
    I measured the Hollywood Racks bike rack # HR1400Z for you. The part that would most likely make contact with a tailgate is the bracket that holds the arm closest to the back of the truck. From the top of the receiver opening to the top of that bracket measures 10-7/8 inches (see picture). On your 2002 Ford F-250 lower the tailgate and measure from the top of the receiver opening on your hitch to the lowered tailgate. If less than 10-7/8 inches there won't be any interference.

    The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE can handle bike tires up to 3 inches. This will work out well with your tire size of 2.7". I have linked the video for you to check out how the rack works and to get a good look at those cradles.

  • Platform Bike Rack Curt 18086 vs Hollywood HR1400 Comparison
    The two racks you referenced are very similar but they are two different racks made by two different companies. The Hollywood Racks part # HR1400Z uses different shaped wheel hoops that have a raised section and are a bit wider than the Curt. The Curt also has a bracket on the angled portion of the shank that's designed to connect the lower portion to the vertical portion. Aside from that and a few cosmetic differences the racks are pretty similar. I attached review videos for both...

  • Platform 4-Bike Rack that Will Tilt Away From Vehicle to Access Rear Cargo Area
    I do have another recommendation for you however the Swagman Quad S64692, does not tilt away from the vehicle. Instead look at the Holllywood Racks Sport Rider SE, part # HR1400Z. It's another platform hitch mounted rack that can be used as a 2-bike or 4-bike rack. The Sport Rider SE also tilts away from the vehicle to provide more room when accessing the rear of your vehicle. Check out the video I've attached.

  • How Wide are Wheel Hoops of Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE
    The wheel hoops of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z can accommodate tires up to 3 inches wide. The rack is compatible with bikes with wheelbases up to 60 inches, weighing up to 45 lbs apiece. If you find yourself only needing to carry two bikes, the two bike extension is easily removable. A cable lock and a hitch lock are included. I've linked you to a product demonstration video featuring the Sport Rider SE.

  • Hitch-Mount Platform-Style Bike Rack Recommendation for 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    First you will want to check the size and tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your Wrangler Unlimited since it could be equipped with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch or a 2-inch Class III hitch. There will be a sticker on the hitch indicating its tongue weight rating (the downward force on the hitch) and this rating must be enough for the weight of the bike carrier you select plus the weight of all of your loaded bikes. The linked article will help explain hitch capacity. Clearance...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Womens Beach Cruiser
    There are going to be bike racks that will work for your Schwinn Women's Sanctuary 7 Cruiser but no hanging racks because hanging racks have a maximum weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike and your Schwinn looks like it weighs 44 lbs. The most economical option that will work for a heavy beach cruiser and a children's bike is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack # HR1400Z. This has a 50 lb per bike capacity and you will need to measure the distance from the center of your...

  • Recommended 4-Bike RV Rated Bike Rack For 2 Electric Bikes and 2 Mountain Bikes
    Depending on the weight of your electric bikes, the only other rack that can support the 4 bikes you mentioned, and is still RV Rated is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # HR1400Z which can support 4 bikes weighing up to 50lbs each, with tires up to 3" wide. Since the Thule T2 Pro XTS is no longer available, the Hollywood Racks # HR1400Z is going to be your best option. I included a video of the # HR1400Z for you to take a look at.

  • Best Bike Rack For 4 Bikes With One E-Bike For 2 Inch Hitches
    I like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 # HR1400Z. It's heavy duty and can hold bikes up to 50 lbs. This will fit in your 2 inch hitch and will get not only your ebike but also your other bikes to the trial no problem. Be sure to check out the video I've included to see how it works!

  • What Prevents the Rear Portion of the Hollywood Racks Bike Racks # HR1400 From Getting Stolen
    The pin that secures the two pieces of the rack together to make it a 4 bike rack actually is threaded so that it there is no movement between the two pieces. In order for someone to steal the back portion of the rack he would have to have the right size wrench to un-thread it. Most bike rack thieves don't run around with sets of wrenches on them so the odds are that your rack wouldn't get stolen like this. Check out the review video I attached for this rack.

  • Can Hollywood Racks Bike Rack # HR1400 be Installed Initially as 2 Bike Rack
    Yes, you can use the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider part # HR1400Z as just a 2 bike rack and then later expand it to a 4 bike rack if you wanted to. I attached a picture that shows the rack split apart for you to check out as well.

  • Is a Bike Adapter Required to Load a Womans Bike on the Hollywood Racks SportRider SE
    A bike adapter bar is not normally required to mount a woman's bike on a bike rack like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z. The exception is if the bike has a very, very low step through frame with the top frame bar directly above the pedal crank. I have included a link to a video review of this bike rack for you.

  • Will Hollywood Racks 4-Bike Platform Rack Fit 2011 Subaru Forester And Chevrolet 3/4 Ton Pickup
    The best way to see if you have enough clearance for the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack, part # HR1400Z, is to take a simple measurement. This carrier is designed for 2 inch receiver openings. You will need a tape measure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel. Place the straight edge vertically against the back of the bumper or spare tire if one is present, letting it extend below the trailer hitch receiver opening. Then measure from the center of the hitch...

  • Best Value Expandable 2/4-Bike Platform Hitch Bike Rack
    Swagman makes great bike racks but Hollywood Racks bike racks are built like tanks. They have the build quality and tight clearances that the super expensive bike racks have and cost less so anytime someone is looking for the best value from a bike rack I always recommend Hollywood Racks bike racks. So your best option is the Hollywood Racks 4 bike rack part # HR1400Z which can be used as either a 4 bike or 2 bike rack. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Comparing Hollywood Racks and Curt Platform Bike Racks
    For platform bike racks you really can't beat the Hollywood Rack bike racks like the # HR1400Z. These racks are incredibly solid, well-made, and reliable. I wish the same could be said for the Curt platform racks but if there's a platform rack that's going to give someone fit and finish issues it's almost always a Curt. The # HR1400Z has a rise of 7 inches built into the shank of it so it's going to have the best ground clearance for this style of bike rack as well. I attached a review...

  • Fit of Hollywood Racks HR1400Z 4 Bike Platform Style Bike Rack with 2008 Toyota Sienna
    When we installed hitches on a 2008 Toyota Sienna, we found that the receiver hitch pin hole was recessed under the vehicle by 3-1/4 to 4-1/2 inches. To see if the Hollywood Racks # HR1400Z rack will work on your Sienna, measure the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rear edge of the back bumper. If this distance is less than 6 inches, the rack will be able to fully fold, and will work great for you. I'll link you to an FAQ article that shows how to take that measurement.

  • Platform Bike Rack for 2005 Honda Element that Allows Tailgate to Lower Fully
    It's pretty difficult to say sight unseen if the bike rack would interfere with opening the tailgate fully once it's installed. If you look at the photo I've edited for you, you can see the height of the angled portion of the shank, as well as the distance between the hitch pin hole in the shank and the closest obstruction. If you measure 8-1/2 inches rearward from the hitch pin hole, then 7 inches up, you'll be able to see where the closest part of the rack would sit in relation to the...

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Se # HR1400Z Fit My 2020 Nissan Pathfinder?
    Yes. As long as you have 5 inches from the center of your hitch's pinhole to the outside surface of your rear bumper, the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 # HR1400Z will fit your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder. For a great compatible hitch, I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit # e98908. Since the distance between the center of the hitch's pinhole to the outside of the bumper is only about 4 inches, the etrailer hitch will work with the Sport Rider SE without any clearance issues.
