Commuter 2 Hitch Bike Rack

The Commuter is the perfect option for bikers who want a functional, affordable rack that fits both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches, transports 1 or 2 bikes to the local park or trail, and easily stores in your trunk or garage between uses.


This lightweight rack weighs just 16 pounds and is simple to install. It slides into your vehicle's hitch receiver and secures with the included anti-rattle bolt, which prevents the rack from rattling around inside the receiver. Leave on the included adapter sleeve to fit the shank into your vehicle's 2" hitch receiver, or remove the sleeve to slide the shank into a 1-1/4" receiver.


Dual Arms with Cradles

Commuter Arms and Cradles

Dual arms support your bikes and better accommodate women's, children's and alternative frames. (An adapter bar [HRBA-PRO - sold separately] may still be required.) The arms easily fold down when the rack is not in use - just remove the tethered bail pin.


Soft rubber cradles with straps firmly grip your bike's frame. The cradles rotate and slide along the arms, so you can easily adjust them based on the type and number of bikes you're transporting. And you can use the integrated safety strap to help keep your bikes tied down.


Tilting Mast

Commuter Mast

The Commuter's upright mast tilts forward to allow access to your vehicle's cargo area. Once your bikes are unloaded, just remove the tethered bail pin from the base and tilt the rack away from the vehicle.


An anti-rattle hitch lock and cable lock set (HRLHPTC - sold separately) is recommended to deter theft of the rack and your bikes.

Video Transcript for Hollywood Racks Commuter 2 Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be talking a look at the Hollywood Racks Commuter. This is a folding and tilting 2-bike rack. It's designed for use with an 1-1/4" or a 2" hitch. Its part number is HR2500. Now tilting the rack away from our vehicle, very easy to do. Just remove the bale pin located here at the base of the mast and allow it to tilt away.

As you can see, this gives us good access into our cargo area and it's going to work for most vehicles. We're now just going to stand that mast back into its upright position. Here at the top we've got another bale pin. Pulling that allows us to swing our dual cradle arms up into position. Each arm will have the nice red reflector here on the ends. Makes it visible in the evening, adds a little bit of safety to it for us.

We're going to have rubber-coated cradles. These are going to have the nice flexible soft rubber bands. That's going to prevent any frame wear or any kind of scuffs. These are going to rotate around the cradle arm. It's going to help us to get on a wide variety of frame styles. Now outside to outside here on the cradle arms it's 14" so getting narrower frame bikes, things such as that, on and off the rack shouldn't be an issue.

Now that we've gone over some of the key features of the rack, let's show you how to install it onto your vehicle. Converting the Commuter from an 1-1/4" as you see here over to a 2" is a very easy process. We'll grab our rack and our black adapter. We're going to place that right over the small threaded hole that's in the shank. Want to get our holes lined up there. We'll place our Allen bolt in and thread it on down.

Now you want to get this snug but there's no need to overtighten it or do anything to torque it down too much. We're going to put our bolt right in there and cinch this right up against this receiver tube of our hitch, which is going to give us a nice smooth, steady ride for our bikes. Once we have that in place we're just going to slide it right into the receiver tube. We need to line up the threaded hitch pin hole here with the hole that's in the receiver tube. We're going to place in our anti-rattle bolt and thread that in. We just want to take this down to hand tight for right now. Then we can finish it off with our wrench. Now again, as we tighten this bolt down the shank's being drawn over against the receiver tube. As you can see right now, we're pretty free to wiggle that around and move it, but as we get some torque applied to that bolt you see all that play is gone. We'll then used to supplied clip. We're going to slide it through the hole that's in the end of our bolt just to give us a little bit of extra protection there. With everything secured our shank we're going to load up a bike. Place our bike right up into our cradles and then we can secure it using our straps. Now the straps, we want to have them secure but we certainly don't need to overtighten them. Stretching them too far could cause excessive wear. There we go; we've got that bike loaded up. I'll go ahead and load up a second bike and let you see what it looks like at capacity. Now as you can see on this hybrid-style frame there's virtually no upper tube for us to connect our cradle arms to. What we've done, we've brought in the Hollywood Racks bike adapter bar. This can be used in a wide variety of applications for women's or kids' frame bikes as well. The part number on that is HRBA-PRO. Here in the rear we have a steel loop. Attached to that's our integrated safety strap. This is designed to snake right in through our bikes, like here we'll go through the frame, the tire, and then through the front wheel on our second bike. We'll bring this up, back around, then we're going to go through the rear wheel frame and front wheel on our bike. To secure this all we need to do is first run it through the closer section of the inside gap, then the outside. We're going to cinch this down. This is going to keep our bikes from moving around a lot, and it's also going to protect them in case any of our straps fail or something like that. To secure your bikes we do have a kit available. It's a locking hitch pin bolt, as well as a locking steel cable that's designed to go through both bikes and also through the steel loop located here in the rear. Its part number is HRLHPTC. You can check that out on our website. The rack offers a black rust-resistant powder coat finish. It's going to give us a strong and durable, long lasting look on the outside. It's also made well enough to offer a 75 pound weight capacity, so we can get up to 37-1/2 pounds per bike on it. Hollywood stands behind their products and offers a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we've got our rack all loaded up we're going to head out to the test course and let you see what it looks like in action. We'll start by going through our slalom course. This simulates changing lanes or maybe some evasive maneuvers. As we make our way around the counter to the alternating bumps this is going to apply some torque to the rack. This will be like hitting to pothole or curb that we didn't see. As we get into our salad speed bumps it's going to simulate the up and down movement. This is going to be just like going in and out of driveways or parking garages. That will complete today's look at the Hollywood Racks Commuter tilting 2-bike rack designed for use in 1-1/4" and 2" hitches, part number HR2500. .

Lightweight and easy to attach and detach from hitch. Feels sturdy. The adaptor sleeve is now metal and four sided, replacing 3 sided plastic sleeve. Highly recommend. Came with instructions for old model which does not mention to orient lower beam such that it does not fold flat when tilted (one side of lower beam is angled). Suggested improvement: replace screw in hitch pin with a self locking (leveraged) pin. 739219

The bike rack came 5 days after I ordered it. Real easy to assemble. Looks sturdy enough. Won't know till the weather warms up a bit. Dan, the service rep, was extremely helpful/knowledgeable about the product. I explained that it was for a 2018 Subaru Forester w/ a 1 1/4" hitch. Wanted something fairly sturdy/reliable without paying a small fortune. Was told etrailer.com got very good feedback on this product. 472431

Fantastic customer service: The consultants are professional at etrailer and the very best... Contacted etrailer researching a hitch bike rack for my 1 1/4 hitch and specifications about the width of cradle on bike rack. CS and Pat are very competent, these consultants took my calls and with great care discussed my concerns, and answered all questions so that l could make an informed decision. I purchase the HR2500 hitch bike rack. My products arrived 4 days earlier than anticipated without any damage, and items were exactly what l ordered. The products are everything l desired and very well constructed. I am satisfied and happy with my etrailer experiences and bike products. No longer will my bikes look disorganized, bike frames on an angle, when attached to my car. etrailer met my bike transport needs! 427526

    According to my Hollywood Rack representative, the Hollywood Commuter 2 Bike Rack, part # HR2500 will be compatible with your Class A motorhome, as long as the weight of the bikes remains within the 75 lb weight capacity. However, Hollywood racks cannot be used on the rear of a towed trailer of any kind.

  • Can Anti-Sway Cradles be Added to the Hollywood Racks Commuter Bike Carrier
    The Commuter, # HR2500, is Hollywood Racks bargain carrier and it lacks a lot of the features, such as anti-sway cradles, that other carriers have. The 3-bike version you mentioned is a different series, the Traveler, # HR6500. The diameter of the arms on the Commuter are 1-1/4 inches whereas the carriers that use the anti-sway cradles are 1 inch. The anti-sway cradles will not fit the Commuter. The Commuter comes with a strap that you could use to secure the bikes and limit movement....

To add some locks to this bike rack you need the hitch lock and cable lock set # HRLHPTC. Some people do refer to their trailer as an RV (usually bigger trailers).

On Class I hitches we installed on the same generation Forester as yours we found that from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper is about 7-1/2 inches. The Commuter measures 10-1/4 inches from the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar so it sticks out far enough to clear the bumper. You will want...

This bolt requires a wrench or similar tool for installation and removal. It is not a lock, however. A determined thief could still steal the rack if properly equipped and motivated.

  • Easiest Way to Remove Hollywood Racks Commuter 2 Bike Carrier From Vehicle
    When you remove the rack from the vehicle, you really should remove the entire rack. You could remove the upright portion from the shank that slides into the receiver, but I would not recommend it. Having the remaining shank sticking out behind the vehicle could be dangerous to pedestrians or when backing your vehicle. Using a socket or ratcheting wrench would allow you to very quickly and easily remove the hitch bolt. I've linked you to a demonstration video featuring the # HR2500...

    There is a quick measurement you can take to make sure you have the clearance for anything to mount in your trailer hitch on your 2002 Honda CR-V. You will need a tape measure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel. Place the straight edge vertically against the back of the spare tire, letting it extend below the trailer hitch receiver opening. Then measure from the center of the hitch pin to the straight edge. This will give you the distance you need to clear the spare tire....

    The bike rack I recommend for your 2002 Nissan Sentra is the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack, part # S63360. I like this rack a bit more than the # HR2500 because it has heavy duty cradles and also features a 3 inch rise in the shank, which may give you a little more ground clearance at the back of your Sentra. Both racks have a tilting feature which allow you access to the rear cargo area of your vehicle, and both racks will fit a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and a 2 inch receiver with...

The Hollywood Racks Commuter 2 Bike Carrier also has a tilting feature so you can get into the rear hatch area with the rack still attached.

    For the hitch-mounted bike racks we offer like the Rola TX-102 2-Bike Rack, part # 59400, the bike tires will be higher than the shank of the hitch they are mounted in. I have attached a photo of the 59400 on the back of a vehicle.

This bike rack fits Class II 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch hitch receivers.

  • Hitch Recommend for Carrying Bike Rack on 2016 Toyota Prius V Does Not Require Stabilizer Strap
    The ideal solution for carrying the Hollywood Rack bike rack part # HR2500 with your 2016 Toyota Prius V is to use a trailer hitch that does not have the stabilizer strap requirement.
