The Sport Rider SE2 platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry 2 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.

Locking, Ratcheting Hooks

ratcheting hooks

The Sport Rider SE2 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.

Hollywood Racks Trail Rider Adjustable Wheel Holders

If you want to carry a fat bike on the Sport Rider SE2, you can replace the rack's wheel hoops with fat bike hoops (sold separately).

Folding, Tilting Design


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


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

Add-On Adapters

Sport Rider SE 2-Bike Add-on

The Sport Rider SE2 is expandable and adaptable. If you want to carry 4 bikes, a two-bike add-on accessory (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 (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 SE2, 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).

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

Was a little concerned when I tried to pick up the shipping box and felt the substantial weight, but realized that to have a sturdy and stable rack, the materials have to be heavy. The assembly and adjustment process was easy and our bikes fit perfectly. The fold back feature allowed the hatchback to open fully with bikes attached. Took our Lexus RX out for a test drive over some bumpy roads and speed bumps and everything was rock steady. Excellent product! Very happy! Highly recommended!

We’re very happy with our rack after 1 year. Would make the same purchase again.

This bike rack is second to none especially in this price range. I MHO I think this item is superior to many other brands out there and I’m referring to the well known brands as well. I was impressed with the way it was packaged from the factory and by etrailer. The instructions were clear and it assembled easily. I took my time and probably completed it in under an hour. I didn’t think to take pics with the bikes on the rack but I wanted people with Jeep Wranglers to see how this looks. Notice that I also have a Yakima Back Swing on the Jeep as well. I’ve purchased things from etrailer in the past and can speak of the quality of the products they sell and of course the customer service.

No complaints.

Love the hitch and bike rack. Adjustable everything and extremely stable. No vibration and very little movement of bikes. Easy to install and remove. Rack is heavy for an average person to lift when removing but that's because its made of good quality steel. No rust, dinks, or scratches in over a year and I use it almost everyday (winter, spring, summer, and fall - weather permitting)! Yesterday I transported two bikes 140 miles (highways and byways) to a 16 miles trail - no problem. Excellent customer service - knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. Five stars all around.

- HR1450Z

The Hollywood Sport Rider SE2 is exactly as described. The videos make it very easy to install. The only thing that is a struggle is releasing the hooks if they are pushed down snuggly, which is how they seem to be most effective. It is clearly indicated on the directions that they will be difficult to release if they are locked snuggly. Otherwise, thrilled with them.

- HR1450Z

First I want to thank the folks at etrailer for getting my changed order implemented quickly. I changed from the HR1455Z-E (80 lbs per bike) to the HR1450Z (50 lbs per bike). It also arrived early which helped. The Hollywood rack is really heavy-duty and went together easily with the very good included instructions. It carries my Ebike and analog bike together very easily. My big complaint is the length of the rack from my 2019 RAV4 causes it to scrape heavily on my driveway and other driveways, even without the bikes loaded. I’m still pondering what to do about it. I’m using it with the Curt hitch I also bought from etrailer.

- HR1450Z

Good value for the money. It's held up well attached to my Subaru Outback - even while kept on my car during New England winters. I do have a bit of surface rust in some areas due to the salt on the roads, but I'd buy it again if I needed another rack.

- HR1450Z

A great, simple and sturdy bike rack with all the features that I wanted/needed. After a year of ownership, I especially appreciate the dual-pivot that allows for both "folding up" and "leaning back" when attached to a vehicle. I have absolutely no complaints and would highly recommend this bike rack.

- HR1450Z

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.

- HR1450Z

This bike rack is so well made. It is sturdy and keeps our bikes secure and safe. Works so well, even with our lift gate. Totally recommend it.

- HR1450Z

Great Product from etrailer.com I am quite pleased with the quality of the product. It is was easy to assemble and install. We use it to carry 2 upper scale bikes and did not want to carry them in the bed of my pickup because we did not want to damage the bikes or truck bed. I have no problem loading the bikes by myself. Another plus is the locking hitch and also locking cable for bikes. So easy, safe, and secure makes this product is a great choice.

- HR1450Z

Got this rack for transporting my e-bike. It holds it very securely. Have to remove the clamp adjusters so I can manhandle the beast onto the rack. Holds both my bikes perfectly. Have dealt with etrailer in the past and have always been pleased. Great service!

- HR1450Z

I have used both this and the add-on luggage rack for over a year. I am very pleased with it. The biggest plus are the safety and security features. The minuses are the weight - it can be a two person job attaching it - and the adjustments can be finger pinchers (so be careful).This is definitely a serious heavy-duty rack.

- HR1450Z

I use this on a 2016 CRV. It folds back enough to open the tailgate. It is well made and sturdy. It should last a long time. It holds my 29er Mtn bike very securely. This rack comes with a hitch pin lock and a cable lock for the bike. Both locks heavy duty.

Loving my hitch! It allowed me to have multiple options available to carry stuff. My Hollywood bike rack is great. When tilted back, I can open the hatch. EZ on and off with bikes, EZ rack on and off. I have added a cargo tray and a hitch ball to my accessory inventory. I purchased all from Etrailer. You guys have everything and the website is very good. The descriptions, pictures,videos pretty much answer all questions about the product. I now have a utility trailer. My Honda CRV can now haul stuff like a truck... I purchased the hitch basically to carry a bike rack but it has turned into something much more versatile! Thanks!

I have never used a trailer hitch before so this was all a new experience. The directions for assembly and use were easy to follow. The rack is a bit heavy, but very sturdy. We used it for the first time yesterday on a 50 mile trip down the highway. Nothing moves while you're driving and you really can't tell that its on the back of our little SUV, Honda CR-V. I am very pleased with this rack and feel that it will last a long time due to it's quality parts.

- HR1450Z

This bike rack is a 5 star rack. Very easy to put into the hitch. Tightens down so the rack has very little movement. Folds up very easy against the back of the car when the bikes are off the rack. Was very easy to adjust the rack for a different temporary trike.

Still very pleased with this bike rack. I would give it a 10 star rating if they had 10 stars..

AWESOM bike rack, can't imagine why anybody would use anything else. Easy to assemble and very sturdy and of course ETRAILER was great with ordering and shipping.

- HR1450Z

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.

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.
Larry T - 04/18/2016

installation was easy, it wasn't quick but it wasn't complicated and I took my time double checking everything. loading and unloading the bikes is also pretty easy my kid can do it. I took it on a short drive yesterday, it was our first time using it, it does move and shake a bit, I tried to adjust the anti-rattle hitch but the tightest position puts the handle down or pointing down to the floor which Im afraid it might hit or kill the clearance of the rack, I'll try to play around with it to keep it up right and nice and tight. Other than that this bike rake looks really good on a black car and it feels very solid.

- HR1450Z

Took about 30 minutes to assemble. Tested bikes on rack. Liked how firm they feel on rack. Good design. Very satisfied.

We ordered the Hollywood Rack Sport Rider SE2-2 Bike Platform rack with a 2 inch hitch from etrailer. The rack was delivered very quickly, much quicker than we'd anticipated. It served us beautifully and confidently on our drive from the Hudson Valley NY to Sarasota FL. We are especially pleased with the ease of mounting and securing the bikes on the back of our Honda CRV. We have since recommended this rack and etrailer to friends who are looking for quick, reliable service with help finding the best bike rack for their vehicle. Thank you, etrailer!

the rack continues to be a reliable, portable system on or CRV. I wish there were a way a bag or velcro strap to secure the lock to the rack when the rack is in storage. This is something Ive manufactured myself, but having it come with the unit would keep me from worrying about losing it. I agree with othe comments that the 2 inch hitch is a solid attachment. We had ours installed at the local trailer rental place.
Donna S - 01/17/2018

This is very well engineered. Lots of thought put into design. No wobble. We have an ebike & regular bike. We take the battery off the ebike when we transport the bikes. The rack folds up against the SUV when not in use. Very happy with this rack.

This is a really beefy bike rack. Its adjustable to fit any size bike. Really well thought out! I have a heavy e-bike & my husband has a regular bike. Very happy with this bike rack!
Maria W - 09/16/2019

- HR1450Z

The rack arrived in an amazingly short time after we placed the order. We have just finished the assembly process. Admittedly, non- mechanically inclined people, we found the assembly to be fairly easy due to good instructions and not too many parts to deal with. We love the crank that tightens the rack in the hitch. The fact that the tires sit in slots and the bikes are clamped into place makes us feel much more confident that we're not going to lose a bike somewhere along the road. We do not plan to keep the rack on the vehicle when it is not in use so we did have to find a fairly large space to store it in our garage. It will get its first use this weekend and we are really looking forward to putting it to use.

The rack is everything we hoped it would be. We couldn’t be happier.
Scott a - 08/30/2018

It took a bit of time to install the bike rack but the instructions were straight forward to follow. It helped to have the required tools. The rack fits a standard two inch trailer hitch and is very heavy duty and strong. All the locks work with one key which is terrific. The only drawback with my Sienna is the bike handle bars prevent the tail gate from fully opening. Also the basic support piece that enters the hitch itself projects straight out and can scrape on a moderately steep incline such as a driveway. Not a big problem. I especially like the ratching hold down hooks and the Velcro tire tie downs. And of course with the bikes removed it folds up neatly against the back of the van. I looked at a lot of racks and I have one I replaced. This one is the best.

- HR1450Z

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.

- HR1450Z

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

  • Trike Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Winnebago Fuse Class B Motorhome
    Assuming your 2018 Winnebago Fuse is equipped a 2 inch hitch receiver, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450Z along with the trike adapter # HRTRK-ADP-3. This motorhome approved rack (with the adapter) can accommodate 1 standard bike and 1 delta, tadpole, or adult trike, or 2 standard recumbent bicycles with a track width of up to 36 inches, so in that regard it will work well with your trike with a 25-1/2 track width.

  • Fitting an RV With a Trailer Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
    Generally speaking, RV rated racks are built to withstand the increased travel that the rack experiences when riding behind the RV. The distance from the axle to the hitch receiver is much greater than it is behind a car, causing far more bouncing and swaying when the rack is in use. Additionally, the suspension on most RV's is normally not enough to significantly reduce this travel, causing manufacturers to make racks that are significantly heftier than their passenger vehicle counterparts....

    We have not performed a test fit yet of the Hollywood Racks SE2, # HR1450Z, on a 2010 Toyota RAV4 so to determine fit there are some important measurements to look at. You will want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the spare tire. On the bike rack, the distance measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest wheel loop. The bike pedals and handle bars will probably stick out closer to the vehicle...

  • How Much Does Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Weigh?
    The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450Z is a 48 lb bike rack. This is heavier than some racks but it does feature a weight capacity of 50 lbs per bike, which is quite a bit more than many platform racks, and it can fit bikes with a maximum wheelbase of 60" and a maximum tire width of 3". The SE2 # HR1450Z uses padded hooks to grasp your bikes by the top tubes and adjustable wheel mounts with straps to secure your rear wheels. It has a pair of handy quick-release spring pins that...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Biria Easy Boarding Bikes
    I checked out pictures of Biria Easy Boarding bikes and they basically do not have any type of crosstube at all. So what you'd need to use is a bike frame adapter bar part # UB01 to provide the crosstube for the Hollywood Racks Bike Rack # HR1450Z. Later you will be able to add the carrier adapter pat # HR1485 as well.

  • Can the Standard Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Carry a 55-60 lb Bike if 2nd Bike is Lightweight
    I do see where you are coming from, but the wheel hoops for the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450Z have only been rated for up to a 50 lb bike. So it has less to do with overall weight as it does with the individual components for carrying each bike. I spoke with my contact at Hollywood Racks and he confirmed that if your bike is over the 50 lb weight rating then you would need to use a rack that is rated for heavier individual bikes like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE for...

    For a bike rack that can carry a trike and a bike at the same time we have the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Trike Carrier part # HR1450Z-E-TRKADP3. It really is the only option we have but it would work really well.

  • Comparing the Hollywood Racks SE2 and the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Carriers
    I would not be concerned about the Hollywood Racks Precision-clamping system failing. The hooks use a large spring to compress the hooks to the upright mast and provide a grip that is just as strong as the ratcheting hooks of the Swagman XTC-2 bike rack,# S64670. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack, # HR1450Z, that you referenced and the Swagman XTC-2 and comparable bike racks with a slight edge going to the SE2. The main difference is the folding ability of the SE2 and the...

  • Can I Attach a Bike Rack to The Back of A Cargo Carrier on My 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hitch?
    Great question. The reason you cannot attach a bike rack to the shank of a separate cargo basket is that they are not designed to work together. Adding another accessory to your cargo carrier reduces the tongue weight (TW) capacity of your hitch by half. The added length of the bike rack on the end of the carrier will allow greater leverage to be applied to the hitch tube, which causes the loss of capacity. Combination racks like the Hollywood Racks SE2 Bike Rack with Cargo Carrier,...

  • Can Step Through Frame Bikes Be Used on Hollywood Racks HR1450Z Sport Rider Bike Rack
    As it comes 'out of the box', the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1450z wouldn't work well with a bike that has a step through frame. However, if you used a bike frame adapter like # SA3040 which spans the distance between the seat post tube and the handlebar stem, providing a level spot for the bike rack's frame hook to attach, the bike will fit perfectly. Hollywood Racks confirms that this is an acceptable way for the rack to accommodate a bike with a step-through frame. I'll link...

  • Will Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Carrier Fit a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and 2006 Dodge Ram
    Your questions and concerns are very common and I will be happy to help! First, to determine if the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1450Z will clear the spare tire on your 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited you will need to take a measurement. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance needed to clear the spare tire. If this distance is less than 8-1/2 inches then the carrier will fit. I know on some of the hitches we have installed on Wrangler Unlimited models...

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack Hold Electra Townie Girls Bikes
    Another expert measured the lowest setting for the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider, # HR1450Z, cushioned hook and it will accommodate a frame tube height as low as 18 inches from the ground. I looked at some pictures of the Electra Townie bikes and it does not look like the frame is too low and this rack should work just fine. However I do recommend measuring from the ground to the lowest part of the top frame tube to be sure. If it is too tall at 18 inches then a similar bike rack from...
