Road Runner 5 Hitch Bike Rack

When it comes to transporting your bikes, the Road Runner bicycle rack speeds past the competition. It has all the standard features you'd expect from a hitch-mounted bike rack and includes plenty of extras that are sure to keep your bikes safe and secure. And unlike many other racks, the Road Runner doesn't require tools to install the anti-rattle device or additional bungees or straps to secure your bikes - it's all included and built in.


Anti-Wobble Handle

Road Runner Shank/Anti-Wobble Handle

An integrated anti-wobble handle on the front of the carrier tightens the bike-rack shank to your hitch receiver to prevent the rack 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. And you can tighten the thumbscrew on the back of the upright mast to help keep the mast from wobbling.


Dual Arms

Road Runner Arms

Constructed of rugged steel with a sleek black powder coat finish, the Road Runner features dual arms that 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 unscrew the hand knob on each arm, lower the arms into the brackets, and tighten the knobs down.


Anti-Sway Cradles

Road Runner Cradles

Rubber anti-sway cradles with straps firmly grip your bike's frame at 3 points to keep it from swaying front to back. This helps to keep your bikes from hitting each other and your vehicle during transit. 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.


Anti-Sway Bar

Road Runner Anti-Sway Bar

The Road Runner makes great strides to keep your bikes secure. An anti-sway bar folds out from the bottom of the upright mast to provide another tie-down point for the four bikes mounted outside of the mast. Four included straps secure your bikes to the anti-sway bar to prevent the wheels and the pedals from spinning, keep the front wheels straight, and minimize the up and down movement of your bikes - all of which will help prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact. This is especially helpful on lengthy road trips when you may experience crosswinds. And you can use the integrated safety strap to help tie down the bike that's mounted inside of the upright mast and closest to your vehicle.


The anti-sway bar is simple to use. Just lower and tighten the bar with the built-in hand knob. Then thread one of the safety straps through your bike's front and rear wheels and through a loop on the anti-sway bar before tightening the strap down with the plastic buckle.


Tilting Mast

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


Security System

Road Runner Hitch and Cable Locks

The Road Runner includes a hitch lock that secures the bike carrier to your vehicle's 2" receiver. The rack also comes with an 9' long cable lock that can be fed through a welded steel loop on the bike rack. The vinyl-coated, braided steel cable will deter theft of your bikes.


Both the cable lock and the hitch lock have push-to-lock bodies and are conveniently keyed alike. Keyhole covers on the locks keep out dirt and moisture.

So, one year in, this works well for the price. I have successfully hauled around 5 bikes a couple times now including a couple vacations. Bikes got there securely despite 4+ hours of driving at interstate speeds, including one harrowing stretch on bumpy roads with 70 mph speed limits (wow Texas, seriously?) where the car got significant amounts of "air" at random intervals. Getting the bikes on and off is still a major pain. I had to buy the adapter for 3 womens/children's bikes. My own full size mountain bike barely fits on, too, the pitch between the bars seems a bit challenging and requires me to contort the bike dramatically to get it on and off. If you are trying to actually get 5 bikes on here, figuring out the bike handle tetris game is not easy. Will take you a bit. It still takes me ~15 min to load 5 bikes up every time. On short trips I sometimes skip the tiedown through all the bike wheels and it's fine, although I wouldn't do it for long trips. My biggest regret here is not buying one where the rack will pivot out to allow access to the rear minivan hitch with the bikes attached -- this means this is the last thing to pack in the car and the first thing you unpack, every time on vacation. It requires planning and forethought. The rack does fold down nicely which we used extensively on vacation once the bikes were unpacked, just don't drive around that way. On my Honda minivan the bottom of this sags a bit when fully loaded with bikes, to the extent I scrape hard every time exiting my slightly inclined driveway. We found a few other low spots along our way, from restaurants to other businesses, that resulted in similar cringe-inducing moments. We drove it on the beach quite a bit, after a healthy wash with the pressure washer there is some mild rusting where the handles rotate, but the rack is otherwise in good shape.

Thank you for your review! I wanted to share the links to swing-away hitches and the bike adapter bars. These links take you to our ion of products, and hopefully you can find on e that is right for you.

Review from a similar Road Runner in Hitch Bike Racks


The bike rack is very sturdy andit is nice to findone that fits only a 2 inch hitch. My only complaint is with the directions. While they were to the point they were not very visual friendly. The manufacturer could learn a lesson or two from the way IKEA makes visual directions which are very clear and very friendly.

Review from a similar Road Runner in Hitch Bike Racks


This is my second Hollywood 4 bike rack with a 2" hitch. The first one was purchased in 2002 and was destroyed in a vehicle accident in May of 2019. I must say the new one is just as good as the first one with improvements in the bike latching system. Nothing on the current market compares with the quality of this product. I know I will have many more years of use and durability. etrailer is a great company to deal with. I was kept abreast of the shipping and transit status of the HR400 from the time of order until delivery. I would definitely buy from etrailer again.

The threaded locking rod got bent backing out of driveway, I dont know if it can be replaced. Otherwise the unit is working fine.

Really easy to put together and mount to the car. Comes with locks for locking the rack to the hitch receiver AND a bike lock to secure the bikes to the rack itself. Would recommend if you're looking for a good quality bike mount for your hitch.

This rack holds the bikes very secure. I put 2 adult and 1 child's bike on it and could have put a 3rd adult bike no problem. I am happy with this product.

Review from a similar Road Runner in Hitch Bike Racks


Quality was great however I couldn't fit 3 bikes on this "4" bike carrier. First 2 bikes went on ok. Couldn't safely put third (smaller) bike on there even if I put it at the end and used it for 3 bikes. Tires were hitting brake lever and handlebar of other bike. Didn't want to take a chance that motion from travel would damage either bike. This is only a 4 bike carrier if you have the right 4 bikes. Had to eat return shipping. That's $[XX] I'll never see again.

Review from a similar Road Runner in Hitch Bike Racks


I did a lot of research on various websites before choosing the HR400. I wanted the strength of a full-size shank member designed exclusively for a 2-inch receiver. Hitch arrived within 3 days as promised. Assembly only involved inserting and tightening only one bolt, inserting hitch pin, then tightening "no-wobble lever". I used it to transport 2 bikes across town and I can report it was very solid, not a hint of wobble or noise. It's kind of embarrassing, but the biggest challenge I had was figuring out how use the nylon wheel strap buckles. I probably fussed longer with the buckles than I did with unboxing and installing the rack. Threading the nylon strap correctly through the plastic buckles is a snap once you solve the puzzle. (google it). The wheel straps are a nice touch and keep the bikes rock steady. For a short trip on smooth roads with only 2 (aluminum) bikes, I tried skipping the wheel straps and the bikes stayed reasonably solid. Probably would always use wheel straps if I had expensive carbon fiber bikes or if I was going on a longer trip with the possibility of rough roads. I am almost 70 and have no difficulty removing and reinstalling the rack. So far 5-stars.

Review from a similar Road Runner in Hitch Bike Racks


I spent an excessive amount of time researching bike racks. I had always thought THULE was the go to for bike racks but I had read some bad experiences so that made me look elsewhere. I specifically wanted a hanging rack so I came across this model. It is incredibly sturdy and well built. Literally no wobble at all. I have only hauled 2 bikes so far and they fit very easily. Plenty of room for 2 more bikes. I like the straps and I like the anti-sway bar. Additionally it’s not too heavy so it’s very easy to move around. The instructions are pretty bad but luckily it’s very intuitive so I as able to figure it out. Disclaimer- the only real comparison I have to this one is a trunk mounted rack and an old school rack from 20 years ago. But - I’m very happy with the purchase and it arrived quickly. Highly reccommended.

When I received this the box was previously open. It had been re-stapled and tape up. Even the packing material was broken up. But to my surprise. The bike rack was fine. The rack is very strong and can easily carry 2 bikes along with a heavy ebike. Looks like it will suit me fine.

I bought my first Hollywood rack 15 years ago and am still using it. I got a smaller hitch and needed a new rack - so of course I got a new Hollywood 4-bike carrier. It works great! When I've need parts or had questions, the company has been very responsive. I wish all companies made stuff this good!

  • Hitch Bike Rack with High Weight Capacity Suitable for Use on Motorhome
    Any accessory carrier such as a hitch bike rack or hitch cargo carrier that is to be used on an RV, either a motorhome, trailer or camper, has to be built with reinforcement to withstand the extra stresses found at the rear of such RVs. The extra stresses come about due to the typically greater distance between the rear axle and hitch tube on such vehicles, as compared to that distance on a passenger car. The greater the distance between the two, the more leverage and movement there...

    We can absolutely help you find exactly the bike rack they'll need to carry the whole family's bikes.

I recommend using the Draw-Tite Max Frame Class III Hitch # 76025 which has a 2" hitch receiver since it will mount behind the bumper and install mostly hidden on the vehicle; the only visible part of the hitch will be the receiver, which also means that there's not a visible...

    The bike rack isn't a vehicle specific item, but I can explain how to figure out if it'll work for you. To determine if the Thule Apex # TH9026XT is compatible with your Range Rover Sport, you'll need to find how how far the receiver tube is recessed under the vehicle.

If this distance is less than 7-1/4 inches, the bike rack will work just fine on your vehicle....
