Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle.

Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.

This stylish rack from Kuat carries up to two bikes and fits 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers. Constructed with rigid 6061 heat-treated aluminum tubing, it is one of the lightest bike racks in its class, weighing less than 13 pounds. Innovative anti-sway cradles fit up to 3" diameter frames. Its convenient hand tightening cam system eliminates the need for tools by tightening the bike rack inside the hitch receiver using a large turning knob. The folding design of this bike rack allows for both easy storage and full access to your rear cargo area.


Durable dual-strap cradles provide extra support for bike frames (shown on the Pearl model)

Each cradle has two straps that secure your bike by the top tube and the down tube or seat tube. The cradles fit up to 3" frames.



Large turning knob shown on the front of the hitch barAnti-wobble piece shown extending from the hitch bar

The Beta uses only a convenient hand knob to tighten the rack inside the hitch, unlike other racks that require a bolt and wrench.


Compact folding design allows for convenient storage

The rack tilts forward, away from your vehicle, when you remove the pin at the base, allowing easy access to your vehicle's cargo area. The arms fold down and the hitch bar rotates 270 degrees, parallel to the upright bar. This folding design makes the rack very easy to store.

Video Transcript for Kuat Beta Folding 2 Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Kuat Beta Hanging Style 2 Bike Rack for inch and 1/4 hitches. Part number B202-114. The Kuat Beta Hanging Style 2 Bike Rack is a great choice for your class 1 or class 2 trailer hitch receiver. If you'd like to upgrade your shank and make it work with your 2 inch by 2 inch receivers you could pick up the Kuat Bike Rack Shank Adapter, sold separately with part number D101. It secures our bikes in 3 locations. We've got 2 straps for our top tube and then 1 for our seat post tube.

This one's going to be our anti-sway strap. It's going to help prevent sway in our bike when we're on the road. The straps are very easy to use. Put them down through the buckle, pull it nice and tight, and you're all set. I've gone ahead and removed a bike so we can take a closer look. The straps themselves rotate to work with different bike styles.

The cradles are made out of a rubberized material so they won't harm or scratch our bike. They also feature grooves to help accommodate our lines and cables. They'll also accept bike frames up to 3 inches in diameter. The anti-sway cradles are also adjustable for different shapes of bikes. The dual arms are 8 inches center on center apart, which is actually a shorter distance than most hanging style bike racks.

This is going to help eliminate the need for a bike adapter bar. It's going to work with most women's, children's, and bikes of alternative frame styles. When not in use the dual arms fold down for compact storage. Simply pull out the pin, rotate it down, put it back in to lock it in place. Now, this would be ideal for parallel parking or pulling in your garage overnight. If you need to get into your rear hatch, no problem.

Another great feature is the bike rack tilts away. Simply pull the pin and clip out from down here, bring the pin down, put it through here. That way when we tilt it out it rests on the pin, and then as you can see, got plenty of room to remove any cargo, gear, groceries, anything we might have with us on our trip. The whole thing is made out of an extremely lightweight aluminium construction with a gunmetal gray powder coated finish. It's going to resist rust and corrosion. It has an 80 pound weight capacity. We'll go ahead and give you some measurements just to help you determine if it's going to be the right fit for you. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest portion of our center mass measures about 10 1/2 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside of our cradle arms measures about 30 inches. Our customers are comparing this to the Swagman Trailhead Hanging Style 2 Bike Rack for inch and 1/4 and 2 inch receivers. They both have narrow dual arms, which means they're going to work with many styles of bikes, like your women's, children's, and bikes of alternative frame styles. They both tilt away so you can access your rear hatch. The Kuat uses ratchet strap style straps whereas the Trailhead uses rubberized stretchable straps. Both of them secure our bike the same way. Now that we've gone over the features I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. Right away one of the key things you might notice here is its folded compact design. When it's not in use this is the way you can store it in your rear hatch or in your garage. When you're ready to use it, you can pick it up. It's lightweight. You can pull the pin on bottom, rotate the shank around, line up the pin holes on top. We'll put that through, clip it onto the other side, and then we can feed it into our receiver tube. We can line up our pin holes and then we'll take our included pin and clip, push that through, and put the clip in place. Then we can make our way back here to this knob. By tightening this up it's going to help reduce all that rattle and play within our receiver and our bike rack to make for a nice solid ride for our 2 bikes. In preparation for loading up our bikes we'll need to raise up the dual arms. We can take out the pin and clip here, raise it up realigning the holes. Put that back in, and now we can undo our straps. Just press in on the black tab button and take those out. Now we can load up our bikes. It's recommended you load up the heaviest bike first. We'll just come back, work our way to the back, and set it in place on the cradles. Now in positioning our bike we need to make sure that our seat post tube is nice and snug up against this cradle here. This is going to be our anti-sway cradle. We can rotate the strap around and tighten it up like so. Then we can just continue by doing the other 2 on top. With both bikes loaded up we can now adjust our tension knobs. We've got 1 here at the top and 1 here at the bottom. We can go ahead and tighten these up, and what these are going to do are help prevent any excess rattle or wobble that we might have up here in the dual arms and the center mass. With everything tightened up and both bikes loaded we can now take it out on our test course and see how it performs. This is our test course. Let's start with the slalom. This shows side to side action such as turning corners or evasive maneuvering. Then on to our alternating speed bumps. This shows twisting action such as hitting curbs, potholes, road debris, or uneven pavement. Last of all, the solid speed bumps. This shows up and down action such as driving through a parking lot or parking garage, or driving in and our of the driveway. That's going to complete our look at the Kuat Beta Hanging Style 2 Bike Rack for inch and 1/4 trailer hitches, part number B202-114.

Good bike rack but difficult to keep two bikes from rubbing together and scratching. Very light and seems to be very durable. 561081

Still works great and have found new ways to keep bikes from rubbing each other.

My Kuat bike rack is just right! It is lightweight, easy to put on and off the car, and it stores in the trunk of my car. I can open and shut the trunk easily with the bike rack on. The rack has a sharp, modern look and holds the bikes securely on the car. I really could not ask for more. Thank you! 546301

My only complaint is that the clip on the pin is really hard to push through...there's gotta be another way... 319796


Comments

We had to buy a Kuat pin lock as a work around for the pin not fitting over the bar and that has worked great. I think Kuat either needs to fix the pin problem or sell the rack with the lock.

I love this rack. It is heavy duty but still light. I am impressed with the design of the anti-wobble feature, the folding mechanisms and the straps. I saw a comment somewhere that you can't drop the rack while loaded. It might not be recommended but I do it every time I load my bike and forget that my Chevy Sonic hatch is still up. I do it with only one bike on it and lower it slowly and it works fine. This is no fault of the rack but I did run into conflicts with loading my 29'er and my fat bike at the same time. They both have slanted top tubes which put the tires and bars in the same spot. It looks like I can rotate one of the pads and strap it to the down tube though. I am very happy with this rack. 185441

This is my first bike rack, but for the price I don't know if you can do any better. The rack is light and easy to use. The rack is completely stable at all speeds, and even when I drive fairly aggressively. The anti-wobble features work as well as you would expect. The rack has also done no noticeable damage to my bike, with the exception of the size sticker that is on the upper part of the seat tube. This is a sticker that I planned to remove anyway, so no worries there. One word of caution though, and this goes for any "hanging" bike rack: if you have quick-release wheels, make sure the quick release lever is fully tightened and closed. On my way home the other day the vibrations of the road loosened the lever on my rear wheel and the wheel came off when I went over a small bump in the road at speed. The drive chain and my cable lock kept the wheel from smashing into the road. Now I know to check the tightness on the levers not just before I ride, but also before I transport the bike. 188949

We've been using this bike rack with a 1.25" Draw-Tite receiver hitch (also purchased from etrailer) on a 2012 Prius C for a month with no problems. As shown on the pictures, it fits two bikes very well, even one with a baby carrier. I chose this model based on recommendations from etrailer that it can be easily detached from the car without tools. True to their word, it is very easily detachable from the hitch and folds up nicely to fit in your garage/closet/storage area. Basically, it uses a hand tightened ball bearing mechanism to secure itself into the hitch receiver, and then uses a 3/8" hand locked pin as a safety device. You can install and de-install this rack in just a few minutes. During driving, there is little noticeable vibration from this rack, even on rougher roads or speed bumps. The only downside is that the holes on the receiver hitch do not align perfectly with the holes on the bike rack (see picture). I believe a few other reviewers also noted this issue. There is enough room to fit the safety pin, but not quite enough to fit a 1/2" hitch lock. I called Kuat to ask them about this and the rep told me that not all hitches will line up with this rack. Kuat, coincidentally(?), sells a hitch lock that is also 3/8" (same size as the safety pin) and still fits. 418549

Very light and just what we need for our Subaru WRX Sti. We have yet to put it to a test, though we set it up and like the tightening feature. You can eliminate the rattle that has occurred in past racks by tightening down the thumbscrews. 130322

Well, weve owned this rack for about a year and is still solid. We took it from MA to Fla with two fairly heavy mountain bikes on it and couldnt even tell it was back there. The swing down feature is nice, though it is unassisted meaning you will be presented with the full weight of the bikes when you pivot it down. We had no problem with this, though.

I've owned just about every major type of rack over the years based on vehicle application. Needed a hanging rack for my new 4Runner and the KUAT Beta delivers. It is light weight, highly engineered and uses qualitative materials. The positive pins are quick and easy giving me a piece of mind over cam lock mechanisms. Two anti wobble mechanisms are built in and they are solid. I am jazzed that the rack is made of aluminum and weighs less than my bike - unlike many others that are 2x that weight. It folds flat for easy storage too. Excellent design / job KUAT. Etrailer's service is tops too! 502046

This hitch totally fit my needs. It is super light weight and fold up to store very easy in the back of my CR-V or on the shelf in my garage. It holds the bike securely and the price was absolutely right on. I use it on my Honda CR-V. 715636

by:

A relatively light weight rack at 15 lbs but feels a bit heavier in hand, seems well built with one major flaw. The hitch pin hole is completely off center and does not line up with the hitch hole. This makes you only able to use their proprietary super skinny hitch pin. The rack does not include a locking pin- only a cotter pin secured hitch pin. You can purchase a kuat lock for way too much money but they are out of stock online on most retail sites. 695800

I was looking for a light weight bike rack for my 2015 Honda Accord. Your videos stated that the Kuat Beta was light and easy to install. You were right. I opened the box, read the instructions, and had it installed in about 10 minutes. I don't use a rack lock. It is so easy to pop on and off the hitch that I keep the rack in my car trunk. 667075

Fantastic bike rack. Love the ratcheting straps. Solid and lightweight enough for me to detach from the hitch. Only thing is I wish there was a built in lock to deter thrives from taking the rack. Other than that, easy install into the hitch. Definitely need a u-bar for mine. 655627

I'm completely happy with this rack! It arrived fully assembled and took only a minute to install. Super easy, super light, and super sturdy. I do use a short strap to secure the bike frame to the rack when I'm only hauling one bike because there's some sway. But not a big deal. Highly recommend. 506478

I wanted to let you know (and please pass this along to others at etrailer.com) how pleased I was with the service and the finished product I received at etrailer. I brought my car in for a trailer hitch and a new bike rack (Kuat). I was immediately impressed with the customer service! Every single person was friendly and professional. It seemed to me that every employee enjoyed their job and this great attitude was generously shared with the customers. I was also impressed with the overall HUGE operation that etrailer has. Most of all, this is just to say THANKS for a great experience. 463369

I have this rack on a 1-1/4" hitch fitted to a KIA Soul. It's my first hitch/rack so I don't have anything to compare it with but I find it very easy to use. It has loops on it that allow the rack to be locked to the hitch - peace of mind when left on the car. One of the best things about it is its ability to swing away from the hatchback door. That has been useful frequently. I also use the rack as a bike stand to work on the bike. If you're new to bike racks like this, be advised that you may want to secure the front wheels of the bikes; they tend to move around a LOT if untied. I think this would go for any rack of this style. 427154

Great bike rack. Very light, but strong, and folds up very compactly! Easy to store and carry down to car from apt. on 11th floor! Good looking, sturdy, and color matches VW grey. Bike rack tightens easily so no rattle (and no tools; uses a handle on bottom to turn and tighten). Also tilts back to get access to hatch (you just have to take your bike off first). Definitely recommend it!!! 384574

Arrived in two days so I can was very pleased. I put this rack on my Infiniti G37x sedan. Purchased this model because the aluminum frame is light weight and won't rust like steel in the rain. It took about 15 minutes to install and also fold up quickly when removed or placed in trunk. The rack locks in tight with no wobble or movement. I can also access the trunk with bikes mounted on rack which is nice. Note to buyers: you will need to purchase a hitch lock and bike lock as it doesn't come with the Kuat rack. This seems pretty consistent with similar rack options. 269001

We hauled our bikes around the eastern provinces of Canada last summer and they rode great on the rack, even on rough roads. The rack is easy to mount on the hitch and it swings down easily for access to the hatchback.

I have had the Kuat bike rack for a year now and can't be happier.

Ask the Experts about this Kuat Hitch Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2019 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • There is definitely a trailer hitch that is designed to fit your 2019 Mazda 3 hatchback, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24984, which is a Class I hitch that has a 1-1/4 inch receiver and is a bolt-on installation so no drilling is required in your Mazda. I have added a link to the installation instructions of this hitch for you to check out. Since this is a Class I hitch it does require a Class I compatible bike rack and for this I highly recommend the Saris Freedom EX # SA4412F...

  • The technical reason that the Kuat Adapter Sleeve, part # D101 will not work with the Kuat NV 1.0 is that the end of the shank on the Kuat NV 1.0 doesn't have an additional length for this adapter to attach correctly, and allow for the cam ball to operate, plus leave the hitch pin hole open. I've included a picture of the adapter installed on a Kuat Beta, part # B202-114 to help illustrate the difference in the rack's structure. I've also included a picture of the Beta's shank without the...

  • Weight of Swagman Trailhead, Swagman Titan, Thule Roadway and Kuat Beta Bike Racks
  • The Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack # TH912XTR weighs approximately 35 lbs, the Swagman Titan 2 Bike Rack # S63400 weighs approximately 33 lbs and the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack # S63360 weighs about 27 lbs. These are each quality bike racks and should be manageable but if you are looking for a truly lightweight, easy-to-use hanging bike rack you may also want to consider the Kuat Beta which weighs 12.6 lbs. It is available for 2 inch hitches # B202-2 and 1-1/4 inch hitches # B202-114. Additionally,...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback to Carry Bike Rack
  • There is absolutely a trailer hitch that fits your 2019 Toyota Corolla hatchback, the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11567. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver so it will work perfectly with your Kuat Beta 2-Bike Rack # B202-114, which is rated for use with Class I hitches. Just keep in mind that Curt, the hitch manufacturer, does require you use Stabilizing Strap for Hitch-Mounted Accessories # 18050 with all accessories in order to maintain the lifetime warranty on the hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Availability for a 2018 Chevrolet Cruze
  • We do have some trailer hitch receivers available for your 2018 Chevrolet Cruze hatchback! Both the Draw-Tite # 24951 and the Curt # C11458 are confirmed fits. They both have the same weight ratings, but in comparison the Draw-Tite has more of a difficult installation while the Curt requires a support strap # 18050 for all non-trailer loads per the warranty. Please note that any Class I trailer hitch (which both are) can only carry 2 bikes due to the add torque from the weight of any...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota Prius Eco
  • If you have a trailer hitch such as # 24966 on your 2016 Toyota Prius Eco I recommend the Kuat Beta # B202-114. This rack is aluminum so it is light weight (12.6 pounds) and easier to use and store. It comes with anti-sway cradles and built-in anti-rattle to limit the movement of the rack in the hitch. With a hitch rack you won't have to worry about anything scratching the vehicle. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. If you are looking for a trunk mount rack the FullBack...

  • Lightweight Platform Bike Rack for a 2017 BMW 5 Series
  • You're in the right direction for the Class I hitch, as the Thule DoubleTrack Pro, part # TH9054 is a great choice for a lot of different bikes. The DoubleTrack is fairly easy to load and the unique way that the frame clamps are mounted on the bike rack allows for you to mount in a variety of ways to the frame. I also appreciate that the DoubleTrack has an integrated lock system and its anti-rattle and sway is outright impressive. Kuat makes an excellent rack with very similar...

Kuat has their Beta hanging style bike rack which carries up to 2 bikes weighing in at 40 lbs each but weighs in at a mere 12.6 lbs. This bike rack comes fully assembled and is ready to use right out of the box and is compatible with both a 1-1/4" receiver # B202-114 or 2" receiver # B202-2 depending on what you already have on your CR-V.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Ford Fiesta Sedan
  • The correct trailer hitch for your 2019 Ford Fiesta Sedan is the Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24910. This is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver just like the part # 24961 that fits the Hatchback model. If you plan on using this trailer hitch with a bike rack then I recommend using the Kuat Beta # B202-114 because it is comes fully assembled, weighs in at only 12.6 lbs, and has arms located 8" apart on center which greatly reduce the need for an adapter bar like # UB01 for bikes...

  • Lightweight Bike Rack to Use with Draw-Tite # 24956 Hitch on a 2018 Chevy Bolt EV
  • One of the best lightweight bike racks that we have is the Kuat Beta # B202-114. This has an aluminum frame that weighs only 12.6 lbs and it comes out of the box fully assembled. It has a 1-1/4" shank that is compatible with the Draw-Tite # 24956 on your 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV and it features arms that sit close together to reduce the need of an adapter bar like part # UB01. The Beta doesn't come with locks but those can easily be added with parts # H102-004 and # e98891. If you end...

  • What is the Best Extender for a Draw-Tite Hitch Installed on a 2017 Ford Fiesta ST?
  • The Brophy Hitch Adapter, part # HTAD, is 7-1/4" long and adapts a 2" attachment to fit into a 1-1/4" reciever that will give a bit of extra length to your bike rack and additionally get you further away from the fascia when you install your bike rack. When you use any hitch adapter, your tongue weight (TW), or the downward force that your reciever can support, is cut by 50%. For example, Draw-Tite's Sportframe Trailer Hitch, part # 24961, has a tongue weight of 200lbs. With an...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes with a 2018 Honda HR-V
  • Since the 2 trailer hitches that we have available for your 2018 Honda HR-V are Class I rated, part # 24932 and part # C11416, you won't be able to carry more than 2 bikes with a hitch mounted bike rack. All Class I trailer hitches are smaller so the extra weight from bikes sitting further away from the vehicle will cause damage to your bike rack, trailer hitch, and possibly your HR-V and bikes. We have 4-bike bike racks that are compatible with your Class I trailer hitch, like the Thule...

  • Best Lightweight Hanging Style Bike Rack for a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Although the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR and the Rola TX-102 # 59400 that you referenced are both excellent options, I have another solution that I believe fits your situation perfectly. The Kuat Beta is a great hanging style bike rack that comes fully assembled out of the box and weighs a mere 12.6 lbs. It comes in both a 1-1/4" version, part # B202-114, and a 2" version, part # B202-2, depending on what size hitch receiver is on your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon. The rack is made...

  • Tilting Bike Rack that Will Let Tailgate Down on a 2007 Honda Element
  • I do have a recommendation for you but I am not confident that the Curt rack, # C18029, will tilt down far enough to lower the tailgate on your 2007 Honda Element. But take a look at the Kuat Beta bike racks such as # B202-2 for 2 inch hitches or # B202-114 for 1-1/4 inch hitches. This racks tilt down much further so clearance for the tailgate won't be a problem. On your Element the 2 inch Draw-Tite hitch is # 75659. The 1-1/4 inch version is # 24720 (excludes SC models).

  • Recommended Bike Rack Compatible With a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon With OEM Hitch Receiver
  • I do have a solution for you, but from the research that I have done it looks like the OEM 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver that you have on your 2017 Subaru Outback is a Class I hitch; you can look on it to confirm if it is a Class I or not. In that case, my contact at Softride said that none of their bike racks are compatible with Class I receivers. This means that the Dura Parallelogram SR26247 (discontinued) is not compatible with your current receiver. Since you can only carry...

  • Receiver Hitch and Lightweight Bike Rack For 2018 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo
  • The Draw-Tite Class I hitch part # 24922 is a great option for the 2018 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo as long as it is not considered a R-Line model and/or has an AdBlue Def Tank. We have had customers successfully install the Draw-Tite hitch on their Turbo convertibles however, if it is considered R-line it will not be compatible. You can look in the owner's manual for your particular vehicle to see if it's considered R-line and if it has a tank for diesel exhaust fluid. If your vehicle is R-line...

  • Can the Hands Free Lift Gate Still Operate When Trailer Hitch is Installed on a 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • Any trailer hitch, like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12108 that you referenced, will cause some interference with the hands free lift gate feature on your 2018 Toyota RAV4 because you are putting some metal in front of the motion sensor. You will still be able to activate this feature though with most trailer hitches by kicking straight out to either side of the hitch receiver. If you like the Curt trailer hitch design then I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Highest Capacity Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • There is actually only 1 trailer hitch that fits your 2020 Mazda 3 Hatchback so it definitely cuts down on what we need to filter through. The Draw-Tite # 24984 is a Class I trailer hitch rated for 2,000 lbs towing and has a 1-1/4" receiver rated for 200 lbs tongue weight. It is important to note though that your 2020 Mazda 3 isn't rated for towing so you really should only be using the trailer hitch for something like a bike rack. If you were planning on using this for a bike rack then...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2011 Toyota Prius to Carry a Bike Rack
  • The 2 trailer hitch receivers that will fit your 2011 Toyota Prius are the Curt # C11276 and the Draw-Tite # 24847. The best choice for you is the Draw-Tite option because when we installed it on a 2011 Prius we found the ground clearance to be 12-1/4 inches as opposed to the Curt's 11 inches. They both have a measurement of 2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge of the bumper so you will not have to worry about it sticking out. The other thing to note is...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Bike Rack for 2016 Audi A7

When carrying a bike rack Curt also requrires that you use a support strap, # 18050, in order to be in compliance with the hitch's warranty. I've linked our selection of bike racks that fits a Class I trailer hitch. I like the Kuat Beta # B202-114. The Beta is very light at 12.6 pounds...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitches for 2020 Infiniti Q50 for Bike Rack
  • Realistically the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11407 and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24931 that fit your 2020 Infiniti Q50 have only very slight differences, but I would go with the Curt for a couple different reasons. One of which is that the Curt has brackets which angle in a bit more, which means a slightly shorter tube so less is going to show. The Curt also has a collar around the receiver and the Draw-Tite does not. This is going to give it an added layer of protection...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2015 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
  • We carry one 2 inch trailer hitch receiver to fit your 2015 Subaru Impreza, the EcoHitch, part # 306-X7211. However, it only fits if your vehicle has the knock out panel on the rear bumper. If your Impreza doesn't have a knock out panel then you're going to need a 1-1/4 inch hitch which I suggest the Draw-Tite Sportframe Class I # DT24959 since you have the hatchback and not a sedan. This way you will not need the support straps like is necessary with the Curt. An option to use...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Chevrolet Malibu
  • If you like the Thule T2, but you aren't thrilled with the weight and size, I recommend looking at the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 bike racks. The Sherpa 2.0 is available in gray, # SH12G, pearl, # SH12P, and black, # SH12B. These bike racks weigh almost 20 lbs less than the T2 at 32 lbs and they are smaller in size. When folded, the T2 Pro measures 55" wide x 34" tall and the Sherpa 2.0 measures 42-1/4" wide x 27-3/4" tall (see photo). Kuat is a premium brand that competes with Thule when it comes...

  • Recommended 2-Bike Rack on a Mazda CX-3 with Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I do have some options for you, however the Yakima Ridgeback 2 # Y02457 will not work on your Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24933 because it's a class I trailer hitch and the Ridgeback 2 fits class II and larger. Both class I and class II hitches are 1-1/4 inches, but as you realized they are not identical. For a great class I hitch mount bike rack the Kuat Beta # B202-114 is a great choice. It has an anti-wobble hand-knob which makes it easier to tighten to the hitch receiver by hand instead...
