Approved for use on cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, and motorhomes - not approved for fifth wheels, travel trailers, or flat-towed vehicles

The Sport Rider Special Edition platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry 2 fat tire electric bikes on the rear of your vehicle. It features locking frame hooks and heavy-duty wheel holders with welded gussets to reinforce the rack so it can handle the extra weight of your electric 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

hooks

The Sport Rider uses locking frame hooks to secure your bikes. These 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 secure in place with easy-to-use hand knobs, and the Velcro-like hook-and-loop straps fasten the wheels to the hoops.


Folding, Tilting Design

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.


folding design

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 rack easily installs in the hitch with the locking hitch pin. Just slide the shank into your receiver, insert the hitch pin, and attach the lock pod. The locking pin works as an anti-wobble device to eliminate sway and rattle in the receiver.


hitch adapter

A removable adapter sleeve is included so the rack can be converted for use with 1-1/4" hitch receivers. The sleeve attaches to the shank with a single screw and can be installed or removed quickly.


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.

So far, pretty darn good. Materials are solid, overall is well built, instructions could be a bit better but most aspects are pretty intuitive. Using with 2 good sized ebikes, have taken them on a couple of small (1/2hr) trips, works well. I have the wide tire stirrups, and they fit my 5" tires very well. The multiple locks (hitch pin, both ratchets, cable lock) are really appreciated, and they are all keyed the same. Ratcheting system works as advertised and provides a secure hold down for the bikes. One modest worry, it uses a 1 1/2 hitch tube with a 2" adapter. Like all of these kinds of set ups, this adds some greater wiggle in the hitch connection, so the whole system with the weight of the bikes bounces side to side a bit. They do provide a screw in hitch pin with lock that reduces, but does not come close to eliminating this. I'm adding 2 tie down straps to each side to steady it further. Would be better if they made a full 2" hitch style. 819631

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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

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

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

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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

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

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


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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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


Comments
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.

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

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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

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

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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

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

Review from a similar Sport Rider SE in Hitch Bike Racks


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

  • Is Adapter Needed with Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Step-Thru Frames
    The padded ratcheting hooks on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2 Electric Fat Bike Rack # HR1465Z-E that you were looking at can slide up and down the length of the vertical mast, so they should be able to grab onto the frame of a step-thru bike like yours. With that being said if the step-thru is more dramatic than most you may just need to add an adapter bar like # HRBA-PRO to create a horizontal attachment point for a secure connection. In either case I think a better option...

  • Recommended Hollywood Racks Bike Rack for Use on Motorhome
    You could use the Hollywood Racks SportRider SE2 # HR1465Z-E on the back of your motorhome but you're correct that the Hollywood Racks RV Rider # HR1600 is going to stand up much better over time to the rigors of travel on a larger motorhome. For that reason I do recommend going with the # HR1600 The RV rider has a slightly more sturdy design to help with this application, so it's a much better choice for carrying your bikes on the rear of a motorhome, 5th wheel or flat towed vehicle.

  • Travel Trailer Approved Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry 2 Beach Cruiser Bikes
    For a bike rack that's approved for use behind a travel trailer, I recommend the Swagman Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack # S44FR. It can fit 2 bikes weighing up to 45 lbs each and can easily accommodate bikes with up wheelbases of up to 52" and 3" inch wide tires, so it will work great for safely transporting your two cruiser bikes. The Dispatch is designed to handle the extra bounce and sway that travel trailers put on a hitch-mounted bike rack. It has a 5" higher clearance than...

  • Could Hollywood Racks E-Bike Rack Fit 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler
    Probably not but you'd need to take one measurement. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your Jeep Hitch out to the furthest point on the rear spare. If that measurement is less than 7-1/2 inches the Hollywood Racks E-Bike Rack # HR1465Z-E would fit without interference.

  • Recommended Platform Carrier for RadRover E-Bikes with Fenders
    We've got just what you need! I recommend using the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 Fat E-Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HR1465Z-E since it is specifically designed to carry heavy e-bikes with fat tires. Because this secures the bikes via the frames, it won't effect the fenders on your bikes, but you will need to use a frame adapter bar like the # HRBA-PRO on the bike with the step through frame. The SportRider SE 2 has a massive 80-lbs per bike capacity and can handle...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation For Juiced Fat Tire E-Bike
    There's actually a version of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider for fat bikes that was designed for heavier E-bikes like what you would need with part # HR1465Z-E which would work perfectly for you as it has an 80 lb per bike capacity and can fit tires up to 5 inches in width. This was most likely what was recommended to you.

  • Can Sport Rider SE2 Carry 2 Electric Bikes that Weigh 72 Pounds Each
    I'm guessing the person in the message group is confusing the # HR1465Z-E Sport Rider SE2 with one of its other versions because this is one of the very select few racks that can handle the weight of your 72 pound bikes. The SE2 for electric fat bikes is tested and rated for bikes up to 80 pounds each. Most racks don't allow anything over 60. This is a tried-and-true rack that has the capacity you need, tilts away from your Highlander to access the cargo area, folds up to the Highlander...

  • Best Bike Rack For A Rad Rover 5 Fat Tire Electric Bike.
    I just got off the phone with a Rad Power Bike specialist to learn more about your situation and found a solution to your problem. The RadRover 5 weighs 69.9lbs with the battery installed. I along with Rad Power Bikes recommend that you do not haul your bike with a battery installed. The battery weighs 7.7lbs so you are sitting at 61.9lbs without any accessories and no battery. So now you have some options when it comes to bike racks. I always go for the highest weight rated bike rack...

  • Can the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2 Electric Fat Bike Rack Carry Mountain Bikes
    Your mountain bikes fit just fine in the Hollywood Racks SE2 # HR1465Z-E. The hoops are extra wide for fat tire bikes but they're also short enough that the diameter of the tires still hold the bike in place. Check out the video I attached that shows both a fat tire bike and mountain bike loaded together.

  • Recommended Hollywood Rack for a fat Tire E-Bike and a Regular Bike
    The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 Fat E-Bike Rack part # HR1465Z-E is a great bike rack to accomplish your goals. While the cradles are more heavy duty and wider they are perfectly suited for use with standard weight and tires of normal bikes. The thing I like about this option should you upgrade to a different bike should it have fat tires or be an e bike you will not need a different rack.

  • Recommended Fat Tire Bike Rack for 2015 Subaru Forester
    I have some great fat bike carriers that will work just fine on a 2015 Subaru Forester. The best one will really come down to the features the bike has such as fenders. If you do have fenders then I like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider part # HR1465Z-E but if not then the Hollywood Racks TRS 2-Bike Platform Rack part # HR3000 is my recommendation.

  • I Need A Bike Rack With A Bike Ramp That Can Be Used To Haul 2 Fat Tire Ebikes Weighing 64 lbs
    The rack you need is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 Fat E-Bike Rack # HR1465Z-E. This rack can hold up to 80 lbs unlike the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22B which can only hold 60 lbs and that will not work for you if your bikes weigh 64 lbs WITHOUT the battery. Be sure to check and see if your bikes are 64 lbs with the battery because if so, you can use the Kuat NV 2.0 with the Access Ramp # ANVBRB. Between this rack, the Thule EZ Fold XT # TH903202 and the Saris MTR # SA4032, they are the only...

  • Comparing Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE and SE2 Bike Racks for a 2017 Ram 1500
    The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1455Z-E is a little newer and the only thing that the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1465Z-E has over it is that it's compatible with 1-1/4" and 2 " hitches where the SE2 is only compatible with 2" hitches. Aside from that they both have the same weight capacities and dimensions, but the SE2 comes with bike and rack locks plus an upgraded anti-wobble system that I've used a number of times and really like.

  • What is Difference Between Hollywood Racks E-Bike Carriers # HR1465Z-E and # HR1460Z-E
    The difference is that the # HR1465Z-E has wider wheel hoops for carry fat e-bikes like what you have and the # HR1460Z-E has wheel hoops that aren't as wide for carrying standard width tires. The # HR1465Z-E fits tires up to 5 inches in width and the # HR1460Z-E fits tires up to 3 inches in width. Since your tires are 4 inches wide you'd need the # HR1465Z-E.

    The Gateway by Monday Motorbikes has 4 inch wide tires but I can't find information on the overall weight.

The Swagman Current 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # S64678 you asked about is rated for up to 60 lbs per bike so it very well could work depending on the Gateway's weight.
