SportRider SE2 Hitch Rack for Fat Bikes

The Sport Rider Special Edition platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry 2 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.


Locking, Ratcheting Hooks

1450 SE2 Hooks

Constructed of rugged steel with a sleek black powder coat finish, the Sport Rider SE2 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 the rack can carry two bikes of the same or different heights.


Adjustable Wheel Holders

1450 SE2 Fat Bike 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 inches, 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.


1450 SE2 Wheel Holders

The rack also comes with 2 sets of standard-size cradles, giving you the option of carrying 2 fat bikes, 2 standard bikes, or 1 of each.


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 SE2 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.


1450 SE2 Anti-Wobble

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 the bikes to Sport Rider rack


Add-On Adapters

Sport Rider SE 2-Bike Add-on

The Sport Rider SE2 is expandable and adaptable. If you want to carry four bikes, a two-bike add-on accessory (HR1475Z - sold separately) is available.


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 one recumbent delta trike or one recumbent tadpole-style trike with the Sport Rider SE2, 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).

Video Transcript for Hollywood Racks Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2019 Chevrolet Colorado

Today, on our 2019 Chevrolet Colorado, we're gonna be doing a test fit on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2-bike platform rack for fat bikes. Part number HR1450Z-FB. This 2-bike carrier comes with four cradles that'll fit your fat tire bikes up to 5" wide. You can see we have two different cradles on, so in addition to the four cradles you receive for your fat bike tires that are at 5" wide, you will get the regular cradles that will fit normal bike tires, up to 3" wide.The bike itself is held at three different points of connection. We have two hook and loop straps. One that's on the back wheel right here, and we also have another one that's on the front wheel.

Those two straps pull down on the tires, and pull them down into the wheel trays. Then the third point of connection, we have this padded frame hook that's putting downward force on top of the bike. Those three different points of connection really make it pretty stable. If it seems a little loose, then you just see if you can push down a little bit more. If not, then you're gonna be good to go.It's a very stable bike rack.

It's gonna hold your bikes very well. The hooks also have locks on them, on this side right here. So when you finally get your bikes loaded, you're ready to hit the road, if you're gonna leave your bikes unattended for a long period of time, you would just take your included key, lock that up, and you can't press the button to unlock it.One thing I do want to point out is that this does have a tilt away feature. There's two different pins we got to remove. First we'll remove this snapper pin right there.

Then we're gonna pull on this pin on the back. Then we'll let it tilt away. Now normally this would give you access the bed of your truck if you need it. However, we did find that with this model, it does make contact with the pedals right there. You could adjust the pedals farther down, but it would still make contact right there.

But it's still okay to go ahead and lower it down. You can rest it on there if you want to, and just grab whatever you might need.To tilt it back up, just reverse the process. Grab ahold of the bike rack, and push up until it snaps into place. Locate that snapper pin, and reinsert it. You might want to lift up on the back of it to get that snapper pin back in place. Let's go ahead and remove the bike. You'll want to start with the hook and loop straps. That's always the easiest, just to tear those off and pull them out. Do that on both sides. I do want to point out the the straps are significantly longer on these fat bike wheel trays, because the tires are bigger so you need a longer strap. Now when it comes to the hook, you want to make sure you have a grip on your bike. We're gonna press down and lift up on that handle. Now we can remove it. Something I always like to do is go ahead and replace these straps, so you don't have the really long straps flopping around. Something could catch on it. It could break it off, and you don't want to have to buy new straps.Now let's take a few measurements. I'm gonna come over here and grab my tape measurer. First we're gonna measure from the bumper of our Colorado to the outermost point of our bike rack. This is gonna give us an idea of how much space we've added onto the back of our vehicle. We've added on about 29" to the back of our vehicle. For our ground clearance at the back of the bike rack, it's about 25" to this cradle and this part right here. That's plenty of space. The truck sits higher than most vehicles, so you're not gonna have any problems with bottoming out. Then the closest point of our bike rack is about 8". That's plenty of space, and it's locked into place, so it won't jump up and make contact.Now we can fold this up to create more space. First we're gonna fold down this arm right here. There we go. Now we're gonna come back to this pin and pull it. Then we can lift up on it. Now if we measure again, we've only added on about 15 1/2", so you'll want to keep this in mind for any tight parking situations such as in your garage, or in a parking garage, or just on the street, maybe at the store.Now let's come down here and take a look at how it connects to our hitch. We have standard 5/8" pin that comes with the bike rack. We have a lock on the other side. The anti-rattle system starts back here with this handle. When we tighten that down, that's gonna pull the pin backwards and kind of jam it in the hitch pin hole, to take out the shake and play. Like I said, the lock on the other side is there for a safety precaution. It's also keyed alike with the hooks.Well, that's gonna do it for our look at the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2-bike platform rack for fat bikes on our 2019 Chevrolet Colorado.

Great Product, Heavy Duty, easy installation! I added brackets to the ends to allow for Break and Running lights, as the bikes will be covered, blocking the Vehicle. Uncovered Bikes work well with out additional lights. 637178

After looking at many bike carriers & getting totally confused I.called Adam at e trailers he was very helpful & fixed me up with the exact carrier for my tow behind trailer this bike rack is very well built & will carry my wife's & my e bikes with no problems or worries going down the road if I was to change anything the Velcro straps that go around the tires & wheels need to be about 3 or 4 inches longer not a big deal but would make this rack a 6 star rack instead of a 5 star if ever confused about which one to purchase with so many on the market call Adam before you buy 639559

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


Unlike other product descriptions and instructions, etrailer.com's instructions were clear and well illustrated. I was easily able to follow the instructions and assemble the bike rack in less than an hour. I was most pleased with the customer support offered by etrailer.com. I was unsure of the best bike rack for my needs (an ebike) so I called the support number and had a well informed representative guide me to the "best fit" rack for my car and bikes. It makes such a difference to get it right the first time and having someone to talk to makes all the difference. 646975

I received my Hollywood rack in good order. I live in Canada so having to return anything is a real hassle. I like dealing with etrailer because they do their own research on product quality and don't try to sell anything that won't work for me. I narrowed my search down to two racks and I chose the Hollywood for my 60# fat tire electric bike with 20" wheels. Once I cranked the handle, there was absolutely no wobble whatsoever.I mounted it onto my Kia Sorento with the Curt class III 2" hitch.(Also purchased from etrailer.) 633381

Owned my Hollywood bike rack for a year now and hands down this is one solid unit.--has many adjustments for small and large bicycles .---The easy on and off clamps are failsafe.---The fold-up locking pins are a cinch while folding the rack into a smaller footprint.---- The included bike and hitch locks are a real plus and the built in hitch clamp removes 100% of rack sway. Overall a high quality rack for a real fair price.----Gordon Lehman 576997

Shipped on time by etrailer, setup was easy and was installed in less than an hour. Drove from Quartzsite, AZ to Benson AZ, with two 70 pound (EACH!) electric bikes. I had the rear camera on and watching. No shaking or shifting. One of the ebikes was a woman's bike. I reversed the position of the frame hooks so the shorter of the 2 ebikes hooked to the low frame on the the woman's bike. Worked perfectly! Overall, an excellent experience. 612722

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


Just purchased a Hollywood Sport Rider SE-2 From etrailer.com. Am quite pleased with the quality of the product , the easy assembly, and installation. Plan to use it to carry 2 bikes from home to wherever, did not want to carry in the bed of my pickup as did not want to damage bikes or truck bed. I am old guy and have no problem loading bikes by myself. And another plus is locking hitch and also locking cable for bikes. So easy, safe, and secure makes this product a great choice. Another great choice would be etrailor.com , The ease of navigating this site, ordering process helpful and caring staff is why I will order from this site again. Thanks etrailer.com 130476

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


This product met my expectations. It is extremely well engineered,high quality and very easy to assemble. I like the simple design and that it is very solid when attached to the car thanks to the 2" hitch. This was the one thing I was concerned most about but not any more it is a solid attachment. It is very easy to load bikes and lock down boys and girl frames no problem also like the way it folds up into a compact package which is easy to Cary and store. This will really make transporting our bikes from place to place a whole lot easier . If you are looking for a sturdy bike carrier this is the one to buy. Maybe a little pricey but once you get it installed and use it you will forget about what it cost. 186310


Comments

This bike rack is fantastic very good quality and exceeds my expectations. Only one slight flaw,the fabric tie downs for the wheels are poor quality, I had to call the company for 3 replacements which the company replaced very quickly for me at no cost, however the new straps could still be of better quality. Still a great product and Co. To deal with, I would buy another one if I had to.

We installed our E bike rack very quickly using the direction sheet included. All the parts were easy to locate and connect. The hardest part was figuring out which bike would fit best first on, but once that was figured out, it is so easy to load and secure the bikes. We have had two other bike rack systems over the years and this product overall deserves a five star rating! 664469

Simple and strong... I waited too long to buy this item. Real necessity if you are going to try and be active with an electric bike. The best way transport 2 heavy electric bikes. I was sent 2 of the same sides of the fat bike conversion kit. I am waiting to get the correct left hand side to complete my experience. 667604

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


Received the hitch very quickly. Everything was in good condition. Easy to put together and adjust. I would have preferred that the latch that comes down over the bike frame was the type that use a key lock, but considering the price, this will work. Using the tilt feature, I am able to open the rear hatch of my Outback even with my 29'r Cannondale on the mount closest to the car. I used the rack on 30 miles of back country, rough roads. By the nature of the way racks are mounted, they wiggle around a bit. Glad I got the 2" model. I think the 1 1/4" with a sleeve to fit a 2" would end up fatigued if used on rough roads. 107714

Comes with a hitch lock AND cable lock long enough to wrap around bikes and then to be fed through the designated hole in the base of the rack. Four keys are given that open both provided locks, so there is no worrying if it is the correct key when you pull them out of storage. I have a heavier enduro mountain bike and my rack/hitch holds it without shaking and rattling, but also holds road bikes just as well. And if I ever meet two other people who would like to tear it up on the trails with me on a regular basis, I know I can come back here and buy the attachment for an additional two more bikes. A year later and it's never been removed, is rust free, and working like it did on day 1. By going through etrailer.com and not the car dealer to buy the hitch, install that myself, then buy the rack in store and install that too, I saved hundreds! Their products are quality at a fraction of others' prices, with great installation videos that helped me get 'er done (I'm definitely not a mechanic). Couldn't recommend this rack/etrailer.com more. 556616

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


Pro: Holds a heavy cargo bike with a long wheelbase. Con: The foam padding on the arm holders broke apart on our first road trip and scratched both bikes. Very cumbersome to adjust wheelbase. Heavy with cheap velcro straps and foam padding. I've owned several racks over the past few decades and this by far the worst. The only benefit is that it can accommodate a heavy bike with a long wheelbase. It's been over a year since I purchased this so maybe there are other nicer options out there that will fit a cargo bike. I would recommend looking at other products. Though Etrailer customer service and transaction was very good. 365819

The HR1450E bike rack is a bit heavy, and it's a bit big and it takes a few minutes to unfold and fold it open and closed.. BUT it is truly the best rack I have ever used. I love it! When you are done securing your very expensive bike's to the rack- it is not going any where! and it's easy to lock the whole thing up and go in and have lunch on the road. I recommend it! 332239

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


We had shopped many of the well known brands of Bike racks and was able to use etrailer to view videos on each one of the products. We found this very helpful to actually see how it fit on the car and also how well it did or did not function in use. We ended up choosing the Hollywood brand, a two bike model that has the ability to expand. It was important that it tipped and folded flat so we shopped for those qualities as well as durability. We live in Colorado, use the rack almost every weekend and have a variety of weather conditions. After 2 weeks we are very happy with our purchase. It is sturdy, fits my Jeep Grand Cherokee perfectly and is easy to fold and tilt. I am small in stature so being able to maneuver around the rack and load and unload the bikes was important for me. Great rack and met all our needs. Note to buyers, if you have a newer vehicle with the backup object detector, the buzzing when you back up can make you a little crazy. 369377

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


This product was perfect for my heavy e-bike (Stromer ST-1) and was capable of holding 2 of them at 55 lbs each. The instructions for assembly were straight forward and all parts were easily identified. Once assembled, the rack was easy to attach to my hitch and easy to take off. I loved the fact that it folded down to allow the tailgate to open. I would definitely buy again, and, in fact, will have to do so since I lost my home in the recent Northern Cal wildfire and the rack was in the garage!! I will be ordering exactly the same product. 454968

I did a lot of research looking for the right bike rack that would hold 2 e bikes securely. The bikes have fenders, so a lot of the other brands wouldn't work where the hook grabs the front tire. This rack is great. Well built, solid and easily holds our 2 e bikes. Great features on the rack as well, tilt and no wobble, along with the locks and cable. Instructions were good and an easy project to put the rack together. Rack was shipped in a good protective box and arrived on time. 495795

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


I cannot say enough about the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 that I purchased over a year ago - it handles a total of 160 pounds for our 2 eBikes that weigh 80 pounds each. I have not seen any other such rack on the market that even comes close to handling eBikes with this much weight. The attached picture shows how these two bikes travel on the back of our truck. The racks hold the bike sturdy while traveling on a major highway at 65mphs. Even on bumpy dirt roads, this rack holds the eBike in the same position until they are removed. The other great feature is the quick flexibility, of the tire and frame holder, to make adjustments for one or two eBikes being transported. The tilt down feature makes easy loading/unloading of the 80 pound bikes for one person. It's also nice to be able to leave the rack in place by flipping it up when not in use, or leaving it horizontal when opening the tailgate of the truck. And when it does need to be removed, it's so simple to unlock it from the truck hitch and remove with minimal effort. After one year of full outdoor exposure (rain, snow and sun), there is no sign of any rust or defect on the rack, or the locking mechanism. I highly recommend this particular rack if you intend to transport any type of heavy duty eBike, you'll be glad you did when you don't see any wild movements while traveling down the road. 468152


Comments

Totally worth the investment, as I can now port this rack from my pickup truck, to our 5th Wheel hitch, and our Volvo HDT RV towing vehicle. To get the rack to fit on the 2 RV rigs hitches, Ill have to obtain a hitch reducing sleeve that I know eTrailer also stocks. This racks just keeps paying for itself over and over again.

Thanks for your follow and reply. Very happy to hear that you are pleased with this bike rack, but I did want to let you know that Hollywood racks only rates this rack for use behind a driving vehicle and a motorhome. It is not rated for use on a towed vehicle, or on an RV. If you would like to consider a different bike rack the Swagman Escapee # S64693
Swagman Escapee 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount
$399.00
is a great choice because it is rated for use on RV's and trailers. It does offer many of the same features as your Hollywood Racks, but is has a 60 pound per bike weight capacity, and may not be compatible for bikes with fenders.

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


Rack is great, the quality control is not. The rack is straightforwardly engineered- there is no exotic workmanship or hardware to be found, which is fine by me, since replacement parts should be easy to find/make. Heavy and strong with a higher weight capacity than most. Highly adjustable to different bike sizes. Folds up pretty compactly considering its size. Included locking hitch pin and cable is nice. Anti-wobble mechanism works very well and is super easy to use. ISSUES: tilt-down feature did not tilt bikes far enough away to be useful (on my '98 4Runner anyway). Directions could be better thought-out, illustrations were small and overly dark. QUALITY CONTROL ISSUES: 1. the anti-wobble handle was installed facing the wrong way. Had to be re-intalled in order to function. 2. The anti-wobble "U" shaped bracket inside the hitch was oriented the wrong way. Had to be removed and re-oriented. 3. One of the pins did not have a tether (all the others do, which prevents you from losing them.) The first 2 issues were easily fixed, and the 3rd I can figure out something, but come on, it's a $300 rack, inspect it already. Despite this, very happy with purchase. 143334

This is one solid, high capacity rack. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it's pretty darn heavy being all steel. The fit and finish is top quality. If you've watched the assembly video, it's a cinch to put together. All the bolts are metric (made in China like everything these days), so you need to right sockets or end wrenches, but they give you the SAE equivalents when that works. I also want to mention what a pleasure it is to deal with etrailer. These guys are top notch. My order shipped the day it was made, and they follow through. 425065

After a year of use, my opinion has changed. This is a solid rack that will haul heavy ebikes anywhere you wish to go. As I write, we are heading home from what will be a 1600 mile trip to Colorado with the bikes.

Very sturdy, well-made rack. It is easy to assemble, but e-trailer has a good assembly video available, if needed. This rack is rated to be able to carry two 80 pound bikes, and I was unable to find any bicycle rack that was comparably rated. The racks that I could find that were close, as far as weight carrying capacity, were hundreds of dollars more. So far, I am very satisfied with this purchase. 454779

I was referred to this product by someone who had purchased it previously and has two electric bikes. He had forewarned me of the poor instructions for assembly and he was correct. It is lighter than my previous bike rack and easy to handle and install. Basically it is the best bike rack I have ever used and continue to use as I get ready for the coming bike season. Sturdy, reliable, easy to use, and secure - Thank you 336110

After a year - the more I use it the more I like it. Believe it or not, if your bike rack is easy to use - the more adventures you will take your bike on. Never a second thought - I just install it on the Mini RV and I am on the road to my next exciting Electric Bike Ride.

We have two oversized heavy comfort e-bikes that need a stronger rack. The etrailer product fit the bill perfectly. It fit great on our 2011 GMC Terrain and works a treat. I'm not a mechanical guy, but even I was able to read the instructions, watch the youtube videos, and install the rack with a torque wrench as per specs. We have had some nice trips with our bikes. Our bikes were made by Day 6, and the owner of the company personally recommended your product. Thanks for the quality item. 252860

It was very difficult for me to shell out the big bucks for the Hollywood Racks Electric Bike carrier after I had spent close to $4k on two electric bikes. But a year later, I am glad I bought this carrier. The framework is designed for the extra weight of electric bikes so it is very sturdy, but the greatest feature is the loop mechanism inside the hitch receiver bar. This loop is tightened up around the hitch pin which results in a rack that absolutely does not move in any direction. Your rack and your expensive bikes are rock solid on the back of your vehicle. 570885

We started putting it together and noticed "on the instructions". Not to be used on a towed vehicle" This was the reason we purchased it in the first place. We put it together anyway, the reason being, we might be using it around our area and would keep it than for just that purpose. I have a women's bike and my husband purchased an electric bike with a low step through. With both bikes needing to use the lower bar, it would not work. It would be helpful to put this warning on your instructional video to save $ and not waste time: Not to be used on a towed camper or car. 156008

The HR1455E is a solid bike rack for carrying my Rad Mini that has 5 inch tires. Took it up and down mountain roads and watched for any movement from my rear camera from my Sprinter motor home. There were none, it worked perfectly. 445548

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


The carrier is rock solid, the anti rattle device works perfectly and after i drilled out the missing holes, the storage cart is very useful. I have confidently hauled my bicycle for a 1000 miles with little paint rub. However, the setup of the wheel rests is an exceptionally frustrating experience. I do not remember if i wiggled or sledge hammered them into position. I do remember lifting my 50 pound bike up into them at least 5 times before being correctly distanced. The tilting function should be avoided unless you like the sight of blood. If any bicycles are on the rack they must be lifted with one hand while pulling the safety pin. As soon as the pin clears the entire rack pivots toward the ground. the spring loaded catch is just a phrase. My feelings are that you adjust this rack for your bicycles and never change it, and always remember to put everything you want into the trunk before mounting the bicycle. 571386

Strong well made, well designed item. Don't waste your time looking for other bike carriers for ebikes. This is it! Shipping was fast and easy, and assembly was very simple. I was a bit concerned if it would work/fit on our LandRover Discovery II with its outside spare tire mounted on the back, but no problems. The rear door opens fine. Great product! 276715

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


This is an excellent e-bike rack. I have used it for my older 55 lb. IGO e-bike mounted on my 2016 Honda CRV. It is a very heavy duty and a well-made bike rack. I only need it for carrying one bike so I left one wheelset off. I like that I can open the rear door without having to take the bike off the SUV. Even when the bike is off the rack and the rack is folded up, I can still open the rear hatch door while on the vehicle. The anti-sway adjustment works perfectly. It is fairly heavy weight wise for me as I am 72 years. The top clamp holds the bike very securely and is easy to use. It came with a keyed alike cable and hitch pin lock which was an extra greatly appreciated. You can't go wrong with this rack and I expect it will last for many years. 558858

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


Good recommendation by etrailer staff (phone) to meet some specific needs for an e-bike (heavier than usual bikes) traveling on two different vehicles. The Hollywood rack is quite sturdy, high quality, well thought out, and seems to be stable while driving. Took a while to assemble - instructions are difficult for what is otherwise a fairly straightforward design. E-bike is low step thru (girls style - no upper tube) and I was concerned if vertical holder would be short enough. One of the vertical hold downs is shorter than the other and it worked like a charm. Comprehensive locking system that is effective if you need to be away from the car for a bit. Rack is probably overkill if you are driving cross town to the trail but if you are planning more lengthy travels or bumpy roads this is the way to go. I'm looking forward to some RV road trips taking the bikes for multiple days. This looks like exactly what is needed. Only improvement might be more recline for opening rear hatches and doors - will have to remove bikes but not rack to get into back of Sprinter van. 151699

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


Product was just as the etrailer rep presented when he recommended it. Arrived quickly, easy to assemble and load. We drove 1700 miles through 4 states (Ohio, W. Virginia, Virginia & N. Carolina) so we saw our fill of construction and rough roads. This includes interstate & local back roads in each state. The bikes are 2 cruisers old style. They never shifted or loosened. I did have to add foam on the ladies bike as the chain guard protruded enough to contact the brace. This is a bike design issue. The only scrape was the handle to tighten the hitch pin, try not to leave it hanging down. The large handle bars did limit access to the rear window, but the tilt function solved that. Pins got tight in the heat & ocean salt, light oil solved that. Very good product, service and guidance. I'll use this vendor again for other such need. 283556

If you need customer care like I did you will be glad if you end up with Jennifer or Kathy, and happy you did business with this company.

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


This might be somewhat premature, but if I don't write it now, I won't write one at all. I noticed there are many complaints about assembly instructions. I wonder if they recently got someone to rewrite these because, even though I'm not a genius, I thought they were some of the best instructions I have ever seen. The one trick I would recommend is to tear off the "Parts Included" sheet and place it side-by-side with the instructions because the instructions constantly refer to part numbers and the parts themselves are unlabeled - you need a quick reference. Uninitiated, it took me 30 minutes; if doing it a second time, it would take half that. As for quality and materials, parts are all snug and tight and properly aligned (as a rule, I am generally ready with my drill to "fix" all the items that fail to line up). If this was a car, I would call it excellent fit and finish. It is as heavy-duty as most buyers state and I expect it to last a very long time. All adjustable parts are readily adjustable and lock down very tight and secure. I really like the design, which seems very well thought-out. And this is from one who constantly grouses about why they hire such stupid people to design things. As of this writing, I am thrilled and 100% certain we made the right choice to carry my wife's 65 lb electric along with my own standard model. Happy trails! 198390

This rack is strong, all metal, balanced really well, stable and holds two bikes perfectly. It folds up into a low profile without the bikes and can easily be moved away from my truck for easy entrance to the back. We have two electric bikes which are longer than average by quite a bit and the moveable wheel holders can be adjusted to the exact length needed. The bikes are held tight and move very little over bumps or poor roads. The lock is just the right length, simple and easy to use. The ordering - customer service and prompt shipping was very pleasant and quick, and the price is lower than the better known brands, but I believe it is a much better rack. The only thing that is a con for me is the instruction manual for assembly...not so great...took quite a while to put together, but, that being said, all the parts were there and every part lends itself to excellent stability and safety. I recommend this company and the product. Really glad we found it. 233196

After spending a decent amount of money on two ebikes, I was tempted to look for a "frugal" option for a hitch mounted bike rack. I am very glad that I bought the Hollywood HR1450E, as it was easy to assemble and is the sturdy option that the ebikes need. It is comforting to look in the mirror and see the bikes securely riding along without worrying about them. The approximate $200 additional spent compared to less sturdy options is a small price to pay for peace of mind. IMHO, I don't believe that a 1 1/4 " based rack could appropriately handle the weight of my wife's Trek Verve+ and my Electra Townie. Very pleased with the quality and engineering of this rack. etrailer delivery was quick. 550478

Put the bicycle carrier together this morning. It took 45-60 minutes for assembly (I'm slow). No extra parts! Yea! Seems really solid. If I can put it together, so can you! Assemble it in the hitch. Makes it so much easier! The only tools I needed was two crescent wrenches and a screwdriver. 398526

Ive owned this bicycle carrier for approximately a year now. I have it mounted on the back of my Minnie Winnie. Last fall we drove from Washington State to Las Vegas, and it performed perfectly! No problems at all. I carried an ebike and a regular bike. I have since taken it on several camping trips, and I never had to worry about the condition of my bikes. I highly recommend this product!

Review from a similar Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 in Hitch Bike Racks


Originally I was looking at a different model that felt would be the best for my application, (60lb) step-through with fenders, but found out it was not available and this was the only other rack that would do the job. It arrived very quick and it is heavy, I was very impressed with the quality of the product and that they provide the anti-rattle and locking devices with the rack. It took about 15min to unpack and assemble. The only issue I had was I didn't like the way it grabbed the frame on the step-thru, too low. The center support clamp was at the bottom too close to the crank and chain guard and would let the bike wobble a bit. This was easily fixed by utilizing a frame adapter bar which is usually used to hang an alternate style bike frame on a hanging rack but with 1 slight modification it worked for me giving the center support a high bar to clamp down on making the bike more stable and not crowding the 2 crank sets. After loading the bikes and driving around, I'm now happy I got this rack with it's 2" hitch mount and not the other smaller one with an adapter as I think this one is better suited to the weight of these heavier bikes. 425625

Very Happy with the choice. great product. Only thing Ive changed is the tire hold down straps. Replaced with rubber straps with quick hooks which I found easier to use.
