BikeWing T4 V-shaped hitch bike rack

The Vme BikeWing T4 hitch-mounted bike rack lets you carry up to 4 bikes by the wheels on V-shaped support arms. It has adjustable, anti-sway cradles that let you transport bikes of most sizes and frame styles. The construction is tough yet lightweight and the rack is easy to set up and store. The rear section of the T4 also detaches from the front section for simple conversion into 2 independent 2-bike racks.


V-Shaped Support Arms

BikeWing T4 V-shaped hitch bike rack

The BikeWing T4 features 4 removable support arms - or wings - that form 2 "V's". The V-racks distribute weight evenly, holding your bikes by the wheels - not the frames. This ensures level transport and it also eliminates the need for bike frame adapter bars normally required for mounting women's, children's, and alternative frame bikes on a hanging-style bike rack.


BikeWing T4 with removable, V-shaped support arms

The support arms can be removed if you need access to the rear cargo area of your vehicle or for storage. Simply pull the pins at the base of the rack to remove the arms. The pins are tethered to the base so you won't lose them.


BikeWing T4 with support arms detached

The base of the rack can be left in your hitch without interfering with your vehicle's rear hatch.


Adjustable Wheel Cradles and Sway Stops

BikeWing-2 with adjustable sway stops

The upper wheel cradles adjust independently so that your bikes hang level on the rack. With your bikes in place adjust the lower sway stops so that they are flush against the bottom of your tires. This Zero-G bike freeze system eliminates all bike motion and prevents any contact between your bikes frames and the rack. To secure your bikes to the rack pull the rubber strap on each cradle and sway stop over the wheel and hook the tightest hole around the peg at the end of the cradle.


BikeWing-2 cotter pin

To adjust each cradle for the proper spacing and height for your specific bikes simply remove the cotter pin, pull out the cradle, and replace it in the desired hole. To adjust each sway stop simply unscrew the knob, slide the sway stop to the desired position, then re-tighten the knob.


BikeWing-2 rubber straps and foam pads

The cradles and sway stops are coated with rubberized nylon to protect your bike wheel surfaces from scratches and scuffs. This coating also provides friction to help grip the wheels on your bikes.


BikeWing-2 frame-protecting foam pads

Foam pads on the support arms help keep your bikes stationary and rattle-free during transport. The pads slide up and down the support arms to accommodate different bike sizes and protect the paint from scratches.


2 Independent 2-Bike Carriers

BikeWing T4 2 independent racks

The rear section of the BikeWing detaches from the front section for conversion into 2 independent 2-bike racks. Remove the pin at the center of the base, remove the back half of the rack, then slide it into a 2" hitch and secure it with the pin.


BikeWIng-2 tilting

The 2-bike version also tilts down with your bikes loaded for access to your cargo area. Just remove the pin from the center of the base and insert it into the lower holes. Then lean the V-rack forward until it rests on the pin.


Compact, Folding Design

BikeWIng-2 adapter for 2 inch hitches

A removable pin lets you fold the V-shaped arms into the rack when you're not transporting bikes. You can also fold the rack up against your vehicle. This is great for parking in places where space is limited, such as a parking garage.


Anti-Rattle Connection to 2" Hitches

BikeWIng-2 adapter for 2 inch hitches

The rack installs into any 2" hitch. 2 NoMotion anti-wobble hitch pins help to reduce noise and movement of the rack in your hitch and at the junction where the rack separates. The pins thread into cylindrical anti-rattle devices already installed in the rack's shanks. You can also add padlocks with a 1/4" shackle (ML312D - sold separately) to each Silent Hitch Pin to secure the carrier to your vehicle.

Video Transcript for Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 4 Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 four-bike rack for two-inch hitches, part number B01458. The Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 four-bike rack is an inexpensive choice that can carry up to four bikes at the rear of your vehicle or your RV, motor home, or fifth-wheel, and it can split up into two separate bike racks as well. So you can have two individual two-bike racks. And with the one closest to the vehicle here, this can actually tilt away when it's in its two-bike form. It can carry a wide variety of bikes like you see here, primarily because it grips it by the tires, which also eliminates the need for any bike adapter parts as well.The mounts for the wheels are all adjustable. For the hooks that hold the top part of the tire in place, you pull the pin on the side here and you can adjust it accordingly to fit whatever bike you're gonna be hauling.

Also, there is this nice rubberized nylon coating here, and that's gonna help protect the frame of your tire once it's being held into place. And of course, we have these straps here.At the base we have these pegs with these turn knobs here that can be adjusted up and down as needed for your tires as well. To help protect the frame we have these pads here that can be adjusted up and down as necessary also. So if your bike we're to make contact, it won't get damaged.With all four bikes, it has a carrying capacity of 160 pounds, so that's roughly about 40 pounds per bike. So with the mountain bike, the alternate frame bike, the road bike, and the kids' bike, it should work fine.

It does have a fat tire adapter kit as well, part number BMP038.And while this doesn't come with any locks per se for either the bikes or the bike rack itself, there are options on etrailer.com that you can find, such as cable locks for the bikes here, or there's a hitch style lock from Lets Go Aero that you can find on etrailer.com as well.Now we're gonna show you how to separate them. To do that we're gonna move this anti-rattle bolt towards the center here. We'll pull the pin, then take our 15/16 socket and loosen up the other side. And we just simply pull it out of the shank there. I'll set this off to the side for now.

And then we'll come to the inside here and remove our anti-rattle bolt. Grab it, and now if you want to use the other half we just pulled out as a bike rack itself, you need to install this on the inside there.When split up into two separate bike racks, the second bike rack pretty much installs exactly the same way as the other in that you simply put it into the hitch and tighten it down with the anti-rattle bolt.Now, when reviewing customer comments and questions about this bike rack, one comment that came up is that it was too close to their RV and would actually make contact should it be jostled back and forth. There's a couple solutions to this problem. First off, you have to take a look at your hitch on your RV. Now, if it comes with a factory-installed hitch, it may sit too far underneath and behind the bumper, to where this would make contact with that.

Try out a hitch extender, perhaps, to work it out with this bike rack, although the weight capacities may be affected by that.Now, we mentioned earlier how this can tilt away from the vehicle. And a reminder, it has to be in this two-bike configuration in order to do this. This is the portion that we left inside the vehicle. So what we're gonna do is remove the pin at the base here and replace it into this area here. It's important to remember to hold onto the bikes themselves while you're doing this, 'cause you don't want it falling down on you while this is happening. So we'll pull the pin, bring it down to its other section here. All right, then we can let the bike rack come down gently. It's gonna want to come crashing down. And now we have full access to our rear hatch to get what we need.We've went ahead and removed the rest of the bikes so you can see what the bike rack looks like with nothing installed on it. Now, right now it's gonna be what we call in the loading position, meaning it's ready to have the bikes installed. And so it can also fold down flat so we can gain rear hatch access when no bikes are installed. Remove the pin, and then begin to fold it down. I'll reinsert the pin at the base here and clip it back up. There we go. And with it folded flat, now we have full hatch access to get what we need. Also, when it's flat like this we can fold it up against the vehicle for those close-quarters situations such as parking or putting it in your garage. Simply pull the pin at the base here and push it up.In some cases it may make contact with the vehicle. However, with our arms here we can adjust these up to make sure that that doesn't happen. So now it doesn't make contact. Reinsert the pin, now we're ready to go.When comparing this with other products, one that comes up is gonna be the Reese Q-Slot Platform-Style two bike and four bike rack, part number PS63138. They can both separate into two-bike racks each, and the biggest differences between these two, the weight capacity for the BikeWing's gonna be a little bit greater at 160 pounds. But with four bikes, the Q-slot is rated only for 140 pounds.Now, it may be a little bit easier to load up the bikes for the Q-Slot, as it's the traditional platform style. However, in some cases, since it grips it by the frame, you may need a bike adapter bar. With the BikeWing, that eliminates that need.How this attaches to the hitch, we're gonna have another anti-rattle bolt at the base. Once that's tightened down we'll take out the shake and play in the shank and make for a smoother ride. Now, before we start loading up our bikes, you want to make sure that they're at least in a decent position to receive all of them. And remember that you can adjust all of these if need be. We'll first grab our mountain bike, because you want to put the heaviest bike closest to the vehicle and work your way back to that.And to make this a little bit easier on us, we're actually gonna remove our arms out on the end here, just so they're not in the way. Now, with the arms removed, it's gonna make getting to our bike rack just a little bit easier. Because with this, you do have to be a little careful. Take our strap, run it through, and tighten that sucker down. Also at this point, that's when we would make any adjustments with our padding here to make sure that if our bike does make contact, it at least is gonna have some padding to protect it.Now with our mountain bike installed, we can repeat this process for our other three bikes. Now that we have all four bikes installed on our vehicle, now we're ready to take it out on our test course and show you how it looks. First we'll take it onto our slalom course, and this will show you the side-to-side action, such as making turns or evasive maneuvers. Finally, we're at the solid speed bumps, which simulates going into your driveway or parking lots.And there you have it for the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 four-bike rack, part number B01458.

Bike rack works as described. Holds the bike firmly. I use on the back of my travel trailer. I have not taken on extended road trips yet but has performed well thus far. The bike rack is long. I have only put 3 bikes on the rack and do have some concern about putting 4 full size adult bikes with the weight being so far out from the bumper of the trailer. Cool feature is coming apart into two bike racks. 616845

The hitch took about 40 minutes to to assemble and install. Directions are OK but better pictures would help. My daughter took three bikes on it and said it worked good. You just have to be careful with the ground clearance as it does stick out quite a ways. Over all it can haul a lot of different frame sizes and is good for a family. 544287

Rack was approved for RV use form the manufacturer. Assembled and installed but the handlebars ends were only 2 inches form the back of the RV. (RV back is flat, receiver did extend behind the back by about 3 inches). Found the rack had considerable movement. I could lift the rack up and down causing the handle bars to move from to back (with considerable up and down movement) by more than 10 inches. This would have caused the handlebar ends to strike the RV. I suppose all the pivot points in the rack to allow it to fold introduced too much "slop" in the rack that allowed all the movement. Very disappointed with what I had hooped was a RV approved rack that also folded out of the way. Thanks etrailer for an (almost) painless return process. 417155

This hitch is fantastic. I would say it is minimalist - no unnecessary bulk - which I like. It comes apart easily, by pulling out a hitch pin. Then you have a 2-bike rack. Put it back together and it's a 4-bike rack. So easy to use. It's plenty sturdy. Love it. 587955

This bike rack works great. I used this on the back of my fifth wheel last weekend to haul two mountain bikes. Have not used the extended section to haul 4 at the same time, and I probably won't put all 4 on the back of my camper due to concerns of putting that much weight and sway at the tail end. That being said, I like the fact this rack gives me the option, which I likely will put all 4 bikes on the truck or SUV. The wheel mounts hold the bike very secure and the design gives you dozens of possible adjustment points to fit different size bikes. Do plan on spending an hour or so assembling the unit when you first receive it. And plan some time for adjustments the first time you set up your bikes. Because I have several different sized bikes (small kid, small adult, large adult), I can see that I'll likely leave the wheel mount cradles in the locations I have them and develop a routine placement for which bike goes in which location. If you're always hauling the same 4 bikes, that shouldn't be too much of a problem. The anti-rattle hitch pin works well. The trade-off, however, is that it adds the necessity of a wrench and a few extra minutes to un-mount the rack from your vehicle. Not a big deal, but certainly not as convenient as pulling a pin from a standard hitch pin. 424380

After a year using the BikeWing hitch rack on our small motorhome on many trips, and also on our Jeep Cherokee, we're very satisfied. Now we're starting to use it on our motorhome with a Roadmaster spare tire carrier, and it's still working well (see photo). The flexibility to use the full two wing configuration or a single wing, plus ability to fold up (and easily remove the wings if desired) when not carrying bikes has all come in very handy. With our vehicles, we are not able to use the furthest inside rack due to lack of clearance to the vehicle, but that's never been a problem since we've only been carrying two bikes, with the option for a third if needed. The only downside to this rack for us (thus 4 stars instead of 5) is that it takes a little more effort to load/unload bikes than do the wheel-tray type racks. But the RV capability, good value and overall flexibility make up for that for us. One unexpected benefit of this rack for us is that it makes a great garage centerline indicator when viewed with our motorhome rear camera while backing into our RV garage (which has a centerline stripe on the floor). 512861

Overall, a great solution if you're carrying different sizes and/or types of bikes. Solid, versatile, and can be broken down and put away in even the smallest of trunks. If you use with a fat bike, get the fat bike kit AND ask for an extra set of straps (comes with only 2 straps but 4 are needed to fully secure a fat bike). The bottom tube does not have any rise and it sticks straight out of the back so ground clearance can be an issue going up or down driveways. This is probably not an issue with SUVs or trucks but cars and minivans need to take proper precautions when using this rack. Especially, if you are carrying more than 2 bikes. 589547

**I have not actually used the rack yet** That being said, I am pretty impressed with the build quality and options I have with this rack. I am an avid mountain biker and spent $600+ on my current hitch mounted Thule T2 with the extension to carry 2 additional bikes. That rack is extremely heavy, does fold up, and works very well, however it is not rated for behind RV/Travel Trailer use, so I had to find something else. The BikeWing T4 is much lighter than my Thule, it is more versatile since you can remove the wings, move the pegs for the tires, fold it up, angle it down, use it as a 2 bike rack, 4 bike rack, or even 2 separate 2 bike racks. Pretty cool! My biggest issue was that the wings hit the spare tire when folding it up, so in order to fold up the rack when its not in use, I have to remove the wings on the side of the spare tire. That is no fault of Lets Go Aero though. I did install my 29er on it to see how easy it would be and it was pretty easy. It took roughly the same time maybe a few second longer than my Thule takes. Overall I am extremely impressed with this rack to the point I am considering selling my Thule and using this on my camper or with my truck when not towing the camper. 551052

We've had this over a year now, and the main purpose for purchasing this was to use it on the back of our fifth wheel camper. We have been happy with it so far for various reasons. 1 - I like how you can use the 2 or 4 bike configuration depending on how many bikes you need to take along. 2 - It holds the bikes very securely. There are 2 rubber straps and 2 bars per wheel of the bike so there is very little movement and holds the frame of the bikes very still. We have loaded bikes with minimal clearance between parts, and there was no evidence of them touching after hundreds of miles. You also won't get the spinning wheels as you go down the road as with the hanging racks. 3 - It is RV rated. There are not a ton of options out there that are rated for going on the back of an RV. From our experience it has earned that. 4 - It is highly adjustable. It takes a little effort to get it adjusted properly so everything fits nicely, but it at least can adjust to fit our bikes. It can even adjust down to fit my 5 year old daughters bike with training wheels. The only thing I would add to this bike rack is an easier way to secure/lock our bikes. At this point we've been just locking our bikes together, figuring it would make it super difficult to remove all the bikes at once and get away without being noticed, a deterrent to keep the honest honest. A built in way to lock it all to the frame would be a nice addition. We would definitely purchase this bike rack again. It is price competitive with the "big names" and holds our bikes very securely. 547694

Has carried our bikes well . We are only able to get 3 on it on our 5th wheel secondary to the ladder rack position. 706904

Overall I've been pleased with the product. Bikes are easy to strap down and remain secure for the duration of the trip. I routinely carry our bikes 300+ miles without any issues. If you carry the same bikes all of the time it only takes a few minutes to have them loaded and secure once the carrier is initially adjusted. If you carry different bikes it takes a few more minutes to adjust the carrier but is still quick overall. Load the bikes in order from heaviest to lightest with the heaviest being closest to the vehicle. I suggest taking a couple of pictures once the bikes are loaded and then always put the bikes on in the same order and orientation. 687035



- B01458
by:

Good product overall and well made. Very versatile to accommodate whatever style of bike that you have. Easy to set up and not overly heavy to lift. Only complaint is the large amount of play in the upright arms. Wish they wobbled less and thus the bike handle bar wouldn't want to rub or bounce up against the camper. 683752

Excellent product, does exactly what we need and it stout. I do not worry about having 4 bikes mounted to it. 669583

Produce easy to assemble and looks good and will do what I needed carry a mens and ladies bike with the option of 2 additional kids bikes. Recommend taking the time before you want to use the carrier to fit the bikes on the carrier. On my 2019 Forester I do not have a little of clearance between the bike pedal and the tailgate. I am also as a 2nd bike mounting a Cannondale ladies frame with wide tires. It is a challenge getting the mounting right so there is no chance of the bike pedal contacting the car and insuring the 2 bikes do not interfere with each other. 658068

by:

overall this bike rack has worked out well. we needed an extended piece for my Toyota RAV4 b/c of the spare tire on rear door. otherwise it's impossible to get a second bike on b/c there is no room b/t rack and spare tire. i like the ease of attaching the rack on and off- I keep my tool inside car for convenience. Adjusting the pins and hooks are also simple, the bikes are always stable when latched on with the bands. it's nice that the two racks can be separated to use on another hitch. very handy. the rack itself is easy to break down quickly if needed. 628772

Really happy with product . Like that u can use it as a two bike rack when u don't need to haul four. Very sturdy after a years use would recommend to anyone 603461



- B01458
by:

Really like the product. Once put together, easy to hitch up and load bikes. I bought this unit as it was specifically rated for use on my RV. Unfortunately I am only able to get 3 bikes on the rack because the mechanism closest to the rear of the RV is only inches away and will not allow a 4rth bike to be placed. That is the main reason for 4 stars, otherwise would have given it 5. 595466

We purchased this bike rack to use with our class b motorhome. The bikes ride very securely once loaded. The ease of use is not great for our cruiser style bikes. It is difficult to position these bikes so they don't rub. 569097

I haven't actually used this product yet but its built well and was easy to assemble. My bikes were easy to put on this rack. It was one that was approved to be used with an RV and it will easily hold my 4 bikes. I like the fact that I can use half the rack and only carry two if I want. There was a strap missing and I called etrailer and had the strap within two days. Great customer service !! 559273

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


I was impressed with the shipping box that it came in. Very strong and no dings from UPS either... When I opened the box I was even more impressed of what I saw! Very nicely made and Very easy to install, you don't even need to read the instructions. In fact, it was faster to install this bike rack than it did to open the box. My advice is if your thinking of getting this you better hurry before the price goes up! 189250

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


Customer service from etrailer was outstanding. The original bike carrier I order was similar to this one but was on back order from the manufacturer. I received a call from Carla right away letting me know it was on back order but there were some other carriers that she thought would fit my needs. I ended up purchasing the Aero VeeMe and am very pleased with it. Shipping was extremely quick. The product is lightweight and easy to assemble. The bike is suspended by the tires. Its perfect for my women's mountain bike since it is very adjustable and it eliminates the straight bar attachment needed with a standard bike rack. I was able to assemble the rack, put it on my Jeep Wrangler, make adjustments and get my bike loaded without any assistance. The instructions even give suggestions on how to best secure the bike with the bungie cords. This is an excellent product especially for the price. Note that if you have a spare tire on the back of your vehicle, you may not be able to carry 2 bikes. On my Jeep Wrangler, I can only carry one bike because there is not enough clearance between the carrier and my spare tire for the second bike. Its not an issue for me since I only transport my bike but it is something to consider if you are need to transport more than one. In addition, I cannot open the back tailgate when I have the carrier attached. Again its not an issue for me but something to keep in mind. 180033

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


2010 Ford Fusion + Hidden Hitch 1 1/4" + VeeMee V2 = too close to trunk Not impossible but to use; but, we're removing the pedal of the inside bike nearest the trunk. Scratched it up during mounting or removing the bike otherwise. Wish it had 2-4" more inches clearance. Also, we bike camp and with a rack on the bike, the inside bike is best mounted by: 1) hooking the front wheel on it's arm 2) removing the rear horizontal carry arm (the part the rim rests on) 3) positioning the rear wheal and then replacing the carry arm and pinning Easy enough with the little clip pin retainer and a second set of hands. Overall a very good rack, great service from e-Trailer, just not the best fit with the Fusion. Tom 196836

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


We bought this hitch to use for a bike rack. It was easy to install taking me about one hour with no help. It hangs just below and underneath the bumper fascia so it doesn't stick out to become a trip or bump hazard. We also purchased the Bike Wing 2 bike rack; its RV rating was the deciding factors. It was easy to assemble taking 20 minutes, the most time consuming part being where to place the bike supports and padding. Most importantly the bikes don't make contact with each other or the car. We are definitely happy with both the hitch and bike rack and have no regrets. 512397

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


I purchased this hitch mounted bike rack to fit behind an R Pod camper as well as to the hitch receiver of my truck. Before ordering, my questions were promptly answered. The bike rack was shipped to me within a week. Hats off to the support and shipping department personnel. The rack was simple to install on the camper's receiver. Adjusting the wheel supports for each bike took some trial and error, but once adjusted, the bikes fit very well on the rack. Once secured with the supplied bungee cords, the bikes are solid on the rack, without worry of them bouncing or coming loose. The anti-rattle bolt is a nice feature - it secures the rack to the camper very rigidly. I recently came back from a camping trip and was pleased with the rack's performance. You can have confidence knowing that your bikes won't be bouncing off the rack or dragging or the ground when driving in and out of parking lots. One slight inconvenience that I encountered was the handlebar width of the bike that is on the inside of the rack, closest to the camper. The handlebars on my mountain bike are wide and touched the back of the camper. I decided to turn the handlebars 90 degrees, so that they wouldn't contact the camper when in tow. Once arrived at destination, with an Allen key, I adjust the handlebars back to riding position. Overall, I'm very impressed with this bike rack. This is the third or fourth time that I order from e-trailer and cannot say enough about how pleasant they are to deal with. I would definitely recommend this rack and e-trailer. 283531

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


I just installed the bike rack yesterday. Works great. I did call and speak with the customer service center at LetsGoAero as the "No-Motion" pin/bolt that holds the rack onto the receiver was a bit stiff. They immediately said they would ship me a replacement. I also learned that when screwing the pin or bold, into a 1 1/4 inch receiver, you must install it from the passenger side towards the drivers side, as there appears to be a "stop" that prevents you from tightening the pin if you put the pin/bolt in from the opposite direction. Love the bike rack. Fits on both my R-Pod Travel Trailer and my Jeep Grand Cherokee! The long Shank makes all the difference, as I needed the clearance distance for the travel trailer. 571916

This bike rack is surprisingly lightweight and sturdy. I have yet to test the durability of the plastic components, but so far it has attached 2 road bikes securely. It did take some time to get the pins situated for 2 road bikes so definitely set aside some time to do this before using. The 2 best things about this rack are the portability and the fact that it can still fold out of the way for the rear hatch with bikes attached. Those were a couple of key criteria for me and this works well. We are able to carry the rack broken down easily in the back of a Subaru forester and assemble whenever needed. The downsides would be the number of pins to insert and adjust, the need to screw in the hitch mount, and also the potential durability issue for the plastic components and tightening wings. Overall I am pleased with the rack and would recommend to others with similar needs. 549899

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


We have used this product for one continuous year on our trip with the travel trailer. It holds two bicycles. We chose this after considerable research because it was stated it could be used behind a travel trailer, attached to the rear hitch receiver. I did move the spare tire into the truck bed so as to keep the weight on the rear hitch to about 80 pounds (the bike wing plus the two bicycles). So far, the bike wing has done well. The only negative is loading both bikes can take 10 - 15 minutes and they never seems to go on the same way twice. But that said, the bike wing does as what was advertised. 528286

It was easy to assemble. It fits both the 2" and the 1 1/4" hitch nicely and doesn't wobble. I like the feature to allows me to take of the arms for storage and to open the back hatch of the car. etrailer was great! It arrive on time and in good condition 437215

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


The Let's Go Aero VME-V2 is almost -almost -exactly as advertised. It assembled easily, installs easily, and sturdily carries a heavier than normal commuter cruising bike over speed bumps at least three times as high and four times as wide as those shown in the excellent videos developed by etrailer.com detailing it's assembly and reviewing it's ability to transport bikes. However, there are three problems with the VME-V2 bicycle carrier. First, when using the slots at the end of the V-wing arms to insert the bicycle-carrying hooks, the plastic caps won't fully seat in the open end of the arm. I solved that problem by using a circular file to create a semi-circular notch in the cap that fits across the hook inserted through the arm, and the arm then fits flush in the opening. Second, when the bike-carrying hooks are installed on both the side facing the car as well as the side facing away from the car, which is the configuration required to transport two bikes, the hatch on my 2016 Mazda CX-5 cannot clear the car-facing hooks to be opened. The solution is simple: simply reverse the hooks and insert them lower on the V-wing arm. The hatch can then clear the installed bike rack by about an inch and access to the rear storage area is available. The third problem is a bit more serious. When carrying two bikes, one would, logically, hang the first on the hooks facing the rear if the car, then load the second on the hooks facing away from the vehicle. However, with a full-size adult commuter cruiser that weighs about 43#, it becomes very difficult to hang on the hooks without banging into the back of the car and bumper, and possibly -perhaps even more probably than not -damaging the paint and finish. I couldn't hang the bike by myself in three tries without banging the handlebars and/or the pedals on the car. I finally got it on with my wife's assistance: with me having hung the rear wheel on the hoom, and supporting the front of the bike, my wife inserted the previously unclipped hook into the V-wing arm and clipped it in place and I lowered the bike onto the book It was a bit of a struggle that would be eliminated by lengthening (and dtrengthening) the arm that is inserted into the hitch and supports the V-wing arms perhaps 3-5", providing more clearance and easier access. I hope this helps those considering the VME-V2, and to guide the manufacturer into developing an improved product. ScupperFrank Miami, FL 2016 Mazda CX-5 CUV September 2016 295997

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


I bought this to pair with a Bike Bunk so that we can take our bikes with us on vacation when towing a pair of jet skis. The design of this rack allows me to mount the bikes above the trailer storage box. It's also convenient that it has both the 1 1/4" and 2" hitch support, as we can stick it on the back of our little Scion xD or in the hitch of my Chevy Silverado with the camper shell on. Both of the bikes I mounted on it when testing were approximately the same length, so it took some fiddling around with the locations of the support pegs to actually support both bikes from the bottom as well as the top. It's probably not the rack's fault that our bikes are almost exactly the same wheelbase, but it still was kind of annoying having to take the bikes off and on multiple times to figure out where each mount needed to be. 512526

Really like this bike rack... I am using it on the front of my travel trailer with the Stromberg Carlson bike rack carrier. It is really solid, doesn't move at all when we are driving. Easy to put the bikes on even though they are a little bit high up ... just feel it is very secure. We had to play around with thr positioning of the bikes a bit so the wheels didn't hit the truck when we turn, but it was easy to figure out with a little adjustment. Very happy 445980

We are VERY happy with our "Go Aero BikeWing" bike rack. It is lightweight and easy to hook up to the trailer hitch. The bike connects to the the bike rack easily and securely. There is plenty of clearance between the bike and our trailer, and plenty of clearance from bike to the road. As we were driving down the road, we didn't notice any difference in towing our trailer with the addition of the bike and bike rack. We would definitely recommend this bike rack to others. 521389

We continue to enjoy our Go Aero BikeWing bike rack. Earlier this year we traveled over 4000 miles with the bike rack on the back of our trailer and my bike on the bike rack with no problems what so ever. The rack continues to be easy to put on the trailer, and the bike is also easy to put on the rack. We are very pleased with this company and the assistance they provided helping us ing the correct bike rack for our needs. It is perfect.

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


So far, this rack seems great. It was easy to put together and get connected to my car. I suggest getting small padlocks to secure all of the mount points and the hitch bolt. I like that it is very lightweight and takes about 30 seconds to load my bike. I have only put one bike on it so far so I can't comment on how easy it is to mount two bikes. I think it would pretty easy after the initial set up of the tire mount points. I am including a picture of my biggest bike on this rack. My BMC Trailfox is a 6 inch travel 29er MTB with 2.3 tires. The fork is a Fox 34. It fits just fine. A Fox 36 would probably be okay as well. I think a fat bike or a plus bike would not fit as the fork might be too wide for the mounting points. I have owned a Thule T2 Classic in the past. The T2 is slightly faster to mount a bike. That is the only real advantage I see. However, I find the bit of sway to be similar between both bike racks. The Thule weighs like 40 pounds. It was a pain to take off my old jeep. This one weighs 12 and disassembles easily. The Thule cost me $280. This one cost me less than half. I think this is a great deal and a very good rack. Overall, I am very happy with it. 406296

So happy Mike H. at etrailer recommended this bike rack! We tow a fifth wheel with our 2017 Ford Super Duty 250, 4 wheel drive, and this bike rack makes it possible to bring our bikes with us. We had tried a different rack to use behind the RV, against the manufacturers warning, bad decision on our part!! The Let's Go Aero Bike Wing-2 is everything they said it is. Easy to assemble, lightweight and securely holds our bikes mated with the Draw-Tite front mount hitch, also provided by etrailer. Ground clearance to tire, 15". Clearance between bumper to inner mounted bike pedal, 3+ " no worry of contact between the two! Overall distance from bumper to outer bike handlebar, 30". Visibility while driving with bikes attached, no problem!! Completely satisfied with this product and etrailer. 436840

The first box I received had been opened while in transit and the unit looked like it had been used. I contacted etrailer and they sent me a new unit right away and a UPS label to return the other. Without question. Now that's good customer service! The new one came and I was able to assemble it easily following the provided directions. Since it comes in 3 parts, it is very easy for me to put in the hitch on my car and then add the 2 'arms' one at a time. Being almost 60 and female, I was concerned about the weight of some of the other racks I considered purchasing. This one is easy to install and use! I did have to work with the adjustments of the brackets on the arms to get them just right for my bike, but once done, I haven't had to touch them again. I have only taken the bike loaded on the rack for short drives, but I feel comfortable enough to go longer distances, too. I would highly recommend this bike rack and etrailer! 551592

I haven't had a chance to actually use this, so this review will be for the assembly process. All pieces and hardware were present.

We use this rack on our R-Pod travel trailer and it works great. You will have to relocate the spare in this application. We also use it on our Jeep Wrangler and it works great there too stock size spare!. Its a bit more work to load the bikes than on other racks, but not a deal breaker. Bottom line: good product, good price.

We mounted it on the Stromberg Carlson bike bunk trailer rack for A-frame trailers. Which ends up quite high, for a good reason. To get bikes high above the propane tanks and the rear of your tow vehicle. Which means you need a big step stool, step ladder, or work off the back of a pickup truck. Memorize how your bikes go on the wing. To avoid having to keep adjusting the supports if you load your bikes differently for the next trip. 703702

  • Any tow bar, such as the excellent Blue Ox Alpha # BX7365, used to flat tow a vehicle like your (very cool!) 1995 Wrangler should be level or nearly so in order to operate best. Tow bars can be up to 3-inches higher or lower than dead-level on either end, strictly speaking, but they all will work better (less binding of the telescoping arms) when they are level. We offer high-low hitch adapters like # RM-076 and # BX88132, shown on the linked page and reviewed in detail in the linked...

  • Carrying a Womens and 2 Childrens Bikes on a 2013 Lexus RX 450h
  • Most 16 inch children's bikes and women's bikes need an adapter bar, like the Swagman # 64005, to be able to carry them level on a hanging bike rack. For that long of a trip I definitely recommend the bikes be as level as possible. The solution is often to use a wheel mount platform rack instead; however, they only fit as small as 20 inch wheels. With that being said sometimes the small bikes do fit hanging bike racks. It depends on how much space there is for the arms to fit under...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes On 2018 Ford Focus
  • I do have an option for you but the Lets Go Aero BikeWing 2+2 does not come in a 1-1/4" inch hitch version. I was able to find in your account that you have a Draw-Tite Class I hitch part # 24872 on the 2018 Ford Focus. Draw-Tite Class I hitches are designed to only accept Class I accessories. It is recommended to only carry 2 bikes on a Class I hitch because the bikes would be too far from the receiver. This produces excessive stress on the hitch which can damage the hitch, the vehicle,...

  • Folding Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Rear of RV
  • At the rear of a motorhome the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. We have the Lets Go Aero Bikewing part # B01458 which is RV approved...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch for Keystone Springdale Travel Trailer to Carry Bikes
  • There is a way for you to carry bikes with a trailer hitch on your 2016 Keystone Springdale 270LE, though based on my research it does have a square bumper, so you would need either the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch # E-100 if the bumper is 4" x 4" square or Ultra-Fab 2" Trailer Hitch # UF35-946401 if your bumper is 4-1/2" x 4". The reason you need one of those instead of something like the Ultra-Fab 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver for Trailer Frames # UF35-946403 is because of how recessed...

  • Why is Thule T2 Bike Rack not Rated for an RV?
  • The reason the Thule T2 # TH9044-TH9046 and other racks are not rated for use behind an RV is due to how rough the ride is compared to a car; the rack sits much further behind the axle which means a lot of movement. A potential solution for you is the Let's Go Aero BikeWing # B01458, which is rated for use with an RV and holds your bikes by the wheels. A hanging rack like the Swagman Trailhead # S63381 may also work if you alternate the way in which you load the bikes. When using a hanging...
