Video Transcript for Reese Tilting 3 Bike Rack Review

Randy: Hey guys, it's Randy here at Etrailer.com today we're going to be taking a look at a three bike rack from Reese. This bike rack offers really easy installation and it also offers really easy loading and unloading of the bikes. Basically it's a really simple and straightforward rack. It has just a single cradle here for each of our bike positions, you can see that here. And it's just going to use two hook and loop straps to come around and secure either our adapter by like this or the top tube on our bike.Now unlike bike racks that offered dual arms, this is going to help us when we need to load smaller frame items. The mountain bike that we have mounted up here, you'll see us load that up a little bit later, and basically it goes on with zero interference.

A lot of other bike racks that have the dual arms, we genuinely have to kind of pivot and move that bike rack to get it past either the large straps that hang out or the anti sway cradles that hang down.Now with the setup being like this, it doesn't offer any anti-sway, so the bikes are going to move forward and back. You could always take a strap around and kind of bring them together a little bit to try to eliminate it, but it's just going to be a nice basic, easy way to get your bikes to your favorite destination so you can enjoy them. You don't have to worry about trying to load them up on your roof or take them apart and shove them in the back of the vehicle where it might take up space.Now with checking out the reviews and in our experience here using it around the shop, this is a really heavy duty rack, it's very sturdy. The weight isn't all that much. It's about 30 pounds, so it's relatively easy to install it, especially with this single mass design that comes up.

It balances out pretty well as you're getting it installed. The rack itself is going to have a capacity of a hundred pounds. So you're going to be looking, you know, 33.33 pounds per bike and that should cover most of the range except for maybe like the heavier electric bikes or something like that.For security, while a cable lock isn't included, we have plenty available here at Etrailer.com you can see there are holes designed in here and also here so we could route that cable lock down and through, in and around all of our bikes and make sure that stays safe and protected. Also to increase visibility so people will know, maybe you don't have your bikes loaded up, we've got to reflector right here, so in the evening if lights hit it, it's going to shine and indicate that you've got something additional on the back of your vehicle that they need to be wary of.Now we do have the option to tilt this rack away from our vehicle with the bike loaded, but it is a very tough thing to do, once she get the weights of the bike on there. It's kinda gonna be a lot of weight as it tilts away, so just keep that in mind.

If you plan on doing that and it's extremely likely as it tilts down, your bike tires are going to wind up hitting the floor. So what we'll do is just pull the pin here. It's going to be the same if we want to tilt it away unloaded, and then you'll have to pull back on that mast to get the weight off the pin. Then at that point just kind of tilt it down.It's going to allow us to get stuff in or out of our back hatch or it looks like the spacing is going to be enough there. If you we're using this on a truck, you could probably open your tailgate.

Just be careful the first time and then again this is where that buddy will come in hand, probably helping to lift back up on those bikes. You can see that lanyard on the pin is helpful in helping you hang onto your pin, but sometimes it gets wrapped around the rack and makes it a little tough to use, and then in that case with our pin back in, we're ready to head down the road. Now while we've got all of our bikes loaded up here, we're going to head out to the test course so you can get a good look of what it's gonna look like on the back of your vehicle and the movement that you can expect from it.Now on the slalom course you're going to see as we shift side to side, the weight kind of causes the rack to move a little bit. Our customers have said the same thing, they do enjoy how even though it does move side to side, there's really no danger of our bikes coming off or any issues like that. We'll go into our alternating speed bumps next. That puts a little bit of a twisting action on the rack, like if you hit a curb or a pothole. Then we'll go right into the solid speed bumps. That's going to show the up and down movement in the rack, and in both of those it stays pretty steady.Now, of course with your bikes unloaded, you can also tilt your rack away. It's going to be a much easier process than with your bikes loaded, so that's just going to come down. Again, gives us great access into that rear cargo area. I think with this coming down as far as it does, you really shouldn't have any issues getting larger items loaded or unloaded. And then to bring it back up, we're just going to reverse that process. Slide our pin through and then just re secure it with the clip.Now a couple of measurements that are generally important to our customers are going to be how much room that you're going to need behind your vehicle, so let's say you wanted to park in your garage, but you didn't want to remove the rack each time. And in that case, from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the rack, it's going to be about 39 and a half inches. Another one to be concerned with is the proximity of the center mast here to the rear of your vehicle. It looks like here we're at about 12 and 7/8's 13 inches, so really as long as your hitch pin hole doesn't fit or it doesn't sit rather further than that underneath the back edge of your bumper should be in really good shape and in most instances, the hitch isn't going to be that far under it'd be really tough to use.The cradle configuration is pretty bike friendly. You can see on each side we're going to have these rubber bumpers for your top tube to sit down and in, that helps to some road shock and also protects the finish. And then we've got the two nice thick wide hook and loops there, one here and one here and it really does, that'd be from about as small as you want it to go, so even some of the larger tattoos on bikes, we really shouldn't have issues getting them to fit in. Now this is an excellent middle of the road type of rack as far as capacity with the three bikes. This is also going to come in a two bike version. It's designed for use on inch and a quarter only hitches and it does come in a four bike version so it a little bit longer, hold four bikes, but it's only available for two inch hitch configurations, so if you need dual use, if you need to use it for both vehicles, this is going to be a really good choice.Swagman also has one called the XP. It's a four bike rack as well. It's only going to be designed for two inch hitches, so you can't use it in the class two hitches, but it does have a lock on that rear knob as you tighten it down. I think this one's a little bit easier to use because we don't have the knobs to deal with and the plates at each section, but they're both really good racks and they would serve you well, especially if you've got that two inch hitch, XP might be a good option as well.Now to begin your installation, you first need to decide which of the shape configurations that you're going to use. In our case, we have a two inch receiver tube, two inches by two inches, so we'll leave the two piece adapter on. If you have an inch and a quarter class two, remember this is not designed for a class one hitch, but if you have a class two hitch, simply going to use the provided tool and we can take out the bolt. That'll then allow us to take the adapter off. Once that's off, we're left with an inch and a quarter shank to be able to slide into that hitch.Once you've got it configured the way we want, we can just slide that into our receiver tube opening there. And we're going to line up the hole with our hitch pin hole. We can thread in our anti rattle bolt. Now for this you are going to need a 19 millimeter or three quarter inch wrench or socket. If you don't already have one, we do have a kit that's already set up, we'll give you a ratchet handle and the socket. Then you can just leave that in the back of your car. It makes it easy anytime you want to get it installed. The other side, just slide on our clip, a little tight that way, we're just going the other way.And you can see, we've got a really nice solid connection point here. And at that point we'll be ready to load up the bikes. Now to get our bikes loaded, we need to undo the hook and loop straps that we have here on the top, and then the top tube on our bike will sit right down in that cradle. Bring your straps back around, get them nice and secure. Then we can move on to the next two bikes.Now you can see with our bikes loaded a few tips for you. You always want to start with your heaviest bike first and then get them lighter as you come back, and you can see with the center mass design like this and really for a lot of bikes on bike racks like this that aren't a platform style rack, if you're using the kid's bike, the area here can be pretty narrow. And also with a woman's bike, that frame tends to drop down that you could put it up on here, but your back wheels going to be kicked way up in the air, so we recommend using a bike adapter bar on those types of bikes or even alternative frame style mountain bikes, just so you can have everything sitting nice and flat and level.Now in my opinion and a lot of customers as well, it's a great bike rack. It's going to be something that it's going to get the job done and it's going to get it done without a lot of hassle loading, unloading, stuff like that. This would definitely be a bike rack I would own. I generally keep just less expensive bikes. It's not a major hobby of mine or anything, just trail riding every now and then and it's not something that I'm too worried about my bikes finish. If you're looking to protect the finish of your bike or you don't like the idea of them making contact together, a platform rack's going to be a better option, but to get three or four bike style platform racks are typically gonna weigh a lot. They're typically get also going to be much more expensive, so definitely something to consider there. All in all, it's going to be a great bike rack, gets excellent customer reviews, fits most vehicles. Remember not a class one hitch, but class two, three, four and five, it's gonna work out really well for.

I was a little worried when the package was given to me from the UPS driver, as it looked really beat up and bent from their rough handling. However, when I cut away all the damaged cardboard, the bike rack was in perfect condition. It's more heavy duty than expected. Final assembly was quick and easy, with just four items to insert and tighten. I immediately loaded my two mountain bikes and went for a test drive. It's impressive, especially considering the price. There's a little wobble on turns, but nothing significant. I think I could drive across Europe with no problem. Excellent value. 209857

I have honda sport fit 2008. I bought a trailer hitch from you, now I want to purchase bike rack for hitch, will the 63120 work? Or another at a similar price?ThanksPete

The bike rack will fit into the hitch, but we have not tested the rack with a Fit. The rack measures 11-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole to the upright bar. If you measure from the hitch pin hole on your hitch straight back, and the bumper does not stick out further than 11 inches, this rack should fit fine.

I love this rack. Works great with my 2014 Yaris. Simple and effective. My only small criticisms of this rack are 2 things... 1: the velcro straps are starting to fray out, but I singed the edges with a lighter to prevent it from spreading, but they still hold solid. 2: it wobbles upon my hitch receiver but I'm not sure if thats fault of the rack or fault of the receiver (Curt brand receiver installed at my local Uhaul) but all around it's a great rack, would recommend for the price. I wasn't a fan of the pin that is provided that holds the rack in place at the tilt joint, but it's a standard Class 1 hitch pin, so I put in another one. The one that is provided is good and strong but I simply don't prefer that retainer style. Another thing to consider is that this rack only holds a bike in one place. You'll need to secure the bottom end of the bike as it hangs if you drive on highways a lot and/or in windy areas, as the bike will swing back and forth. I simply use my cable bike lock and secure it around the main vertical support of the rack. Easy, safe and effective solution. 400216

The installation of my hitch and bike rack took about 1 1/2 hours by myself. Everything fit very well and is tucked up under the car nicely. One thing that might have helped make the installation go faster is if thr fishing wires where a little longer and if you clean off any caulking that might be on the car frame. Great installation videos. 557725

I wanted to buy a bike rack for my husband for his birthday, but was nervous to pick something without his expertise. But etrailer.com provided an incredible amount of good information and recommendations that were even specific to my car, which helped me not only narrow down the type of rack I wanted but order the exact pieces that fit my little hybrid car perfectly. I have a 2010 Honda Insight and used this Reese 2 Bike Rack w/ Frame Mount with the CURT 1 1/4" Hitch Receiver, the latter which I had installed professionally for about $90. I easily assembled the bike rack on my own, and attaching it to the hitch takes about 20 seconds, which is so awesome for throwing the bike on and then removing it altogether for using the car for non-cycling errands. Together they still allow for the hatchback door to open even when loaded, but the tilt is a great feature too if we needed to really move a lot of gear in or out of the hatch. My husband just loaded his bike onto it and headed to the mountain for the first time and he's beaming. Thanks to etrailer.com for all the great info and great products. 515766

Really nice bike rack. It was much more sturdy than it looked in the picture online. I've never had a rack / carrier that tilts down for loading and that's really sweet now that I have it. Note: The extension to the receiver is long enough that I don't have to tilt the carrier to open my hatchback. 321959

We just received the unit so have not tried it on the road. I've installed it and loaded the bike. It is quite wobbly in the reciever which I rather expected but because it extends so far out behind the car the movement is pronounced. The whole thing is heavy and sturdy. I can open the rear hatch of my Subaru Outback without lowering the new hitch. It is easy to install. I will not leave the hitch in place if I am not hauling a bike because of the wobble and the extension but it will be fine for occasionally carrying the bike locally. It is a good value for the money. etrailer asked me to do the review before I was even aware the rack had been delivered much less tested. I wish they would give me more time to evaluate. However I like this company and use it often for trailer parts and informative product reviews. 465297

This is my third purchase from etrailer.com. So far I am very happy with the products they provide. They are of very good quality at a fair price. Delivery is always fast. The last purchase was a dual bike carrier for 1.25" hitch. The product is great looking and functions as it should. It is of a strong build and very easy to assemble and use. 386578

Best for the price I was searching for a 2 bike rack to fit into my class 1 hitch and really came down to the $180 Thule 912 or this one. I know Thule is a solid company but this was a bargain for the price so I gave it a try. Overall it's a decent rack, and I trust it with my $2000 stumpjumper. My only gripe is that it has some movement while in the hitch, which can be solved with some shims from home depot or lowes. I think the cars behind me saw the rack shake a bit were scared it would fall off because they drove bus lengths behind me. Cushioning where the bike touches the rack is adequate but nothing like that of a Thule. So, if you want to spend $100 more for better straps, cushioning, and anti rattle.. go with a Thule. If you want an economical solution which works just as well (just need shims so the rack doesn't shake while driving) then this is completely ok. Also I would highley recommend a locking pin. 1809

I love it it is perfect for my car It is easy to put on and take off use it several times a week put it on in the morning and hit the trails after work. It does have some bounce when I hit a bump too fast but not enough to be a concern for the bikes falling off 403534

very easy to assemble, long enough extension tube so you dont have to buy a 7" extension tube, i had a hitch put on a 99VW golf and it sat back quit a ways, but this cleared the bumber, no frills basic bike rack, just what i wanted 618082

by:

Well built product, bikes fit really good. My only complaint is the the bar to fit into the receiver slot on the vehicle is or has just to much play in it, need it to have a shim to stop it from lose fit. 617484

For a little over $100 (shipping included), this product along with a stabilizing strap, hitch lock, and $1 bungee cord provide a perfectly acceptable solution for transporting modern bicycles. Most solutions offered in retail bicycle shops would have easily been 2 1/2 to 3 times pricier. I ride a couple times a week and typically travel about an hour each way on notoriously bad Western Pennsylvania roads to favorite trail heads. Bicycle rides with a minimum of swaying and bouncing, and the rack assembly is heavy enough to discourage theft of the rack while parked at trail heads. I'd be comfortable using this set up on longer trips and think it plenty secure. As a bonus, it's portable enough that I take the rack off and store it in the back of the vehicle when I'm not using it. I recommend this product for single bike transport on lightweight SUV's with the single qualifier that the $10 stabilizing strap be purchased with it. If you can get to $100 in merchandise, the supplier I used (Etrailer) will pick up the shipping. 615035

Purchased this hitch and love it! Put it together in 10 minutes and on the car took no time at all. Heavy and well made. I have a Ford Edge and I can lift the back with the rack on because it is far enough away from the car. With one bike we can lower the rack if we want to get something like a suitcase out that is a little larger. Recommend it highly and the price is outstanding. Very little wobble or swaying at all.

This is a good bike carrier but it has several drawbacks. There's a lot of play in the carrier when loaded. Bike and carrier wobble more than I was comfortable with. The addition of the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch anti rattle device fixed this problem. The biggest drawback is that this is a 2 bike carrier and neither I nor the bike mechanic could figure out how to mount the second bike. It works great with one bike but good luck mounting the second bike. 528966

I was looking for a good solid bike rack that had good reviews.I could not see myself paying 300 dollars for one,so I started researching and found this one.Bike rack is very well built and seems to be of good quality.The only con would be a little bit on the heavy side.Although in saying that I also consider the sturdiness of it as well.I believe it should serve me well and is a good value for the price. 519068

We have only used this a few times for short distances, but it works very well in that regard. It seems a little heavier than necessary for the job, and perhaps too tall. On our Prius C it puts the bicycles up well into the airflow, promoting drag. Despite the weight, it is fast and easy to install, quick to attach bikes, gentle on the bike frames, and the fold-down feature is great for accessing the hatch-back on the Prius. 440351

This is the second hitch and Rack I have bought from etrailer. The first one is still in use after several years. The directions for installing the hitch were very thorough. I suggest downloading the directions from their website and printing them in color, rather than using the b/w ones they send. The carriage bolts used to mount the hitch make getting that first thread to bite hard. The fishing wire they include to fish the mounting bolts is clever. Overall very pleased. 427711

The bike rack doesn't fit in my new Drawtite #24812 hitch. It's too long, and pushing it in until it stops reveals only about 1/4th of the hole to put the pin in. 417666

This is one of the least expensive 2-bike racks on etrailer. You get exactly what you pay for - a no frills rack that will carry your 2 bikes. The drawbar on the bottom fits very solidly in the receiver. The vertical L-shaped support wobbles side-to-side a few inches in either direction. This is more than I expected but the bikes still come nowhere close to scratching the car. I'm going to try to find a way to tighten the rack before driving any far distances. Aside from that, best price you can get for a rack that gets the job done. 411524

Ask the Experts about this Reese Hitch Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • RV Rated Bike Rack to Prevent Bikes From Swaying
  • The Reese hitch mounted rack you purchased, part # 63120, is a stable rack that gets bikes from one place to another but it's a very basic, entry level rack. It doesn't have anything built in to keep the bikes from swaying back and forth so it's best for short trips to the park or beach but not really for long trips. Additionally, even though it's rated to be used on a trailer (probably why your R-Pod dealer suggested it) the bikes are going to move even more which is what you're dealing...

  • Will Reese 2 Bike Folding Rack # 63120 Prevent Bikes From Swinging During Travel
  • The Reese 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack # 63120 referenced in your question does use rubber pads and heavy-duty fastener straps that attach to the bike frame for a secure connection. As long as everything is tightened down properly, this should do a nice job of preventing too much movement with the bikes during transport. With that being said, it's not going to do as good a job of keeping them stable when compared to a dual-arm carrier like the Swagman Trailhead # S63360. The dual-arm...

  • Reducing the Movement in Hitch Receiver when Using an Adapter with the Pro Series # 63120 Bike Rack
  • The Reese 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack w/ Frame Mount Cradles # 63120 does not have a 2 inch receiver option, but I do have a few things that you can use to reduce the amount of play you are seeing in your bike rack. The best solution is to use an anti-rattle device like the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches # RM-061-125. This will help to put pressure on your adapter to decrease movement. You can then use a support strap, like part # 18050, to help keep your...

  • 2005 Acura TL Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation
  • Yes, the Reese Bike Rack part # 63120 that you referenced has 11-1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole to the upright mast of the rack. That would be more than enough clearance to clear the rear bumper of your 2005 Acura TL with the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24755 installed.

  • What Bike Racks Are Good Fits for 2012 Toyota Prius C
  • The 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack with Frame Mount Cradles # 63120 will fit your 2012 Toyota Prius C as long as you have a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver installed on your vehicle. If you need a hitch receiver, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24971. A link is included on the product page providing instructions on proper installation of the hitch receiver. The first thing you are going to want to look at, however, is the owners manual for your 2012...

  • What 1-1/4-Inch Hitch-Mount 2-Bike Hanging-Style Carrier for Use on 2012 Hyundai Elantra Sedan
  • The Hidden Hitch 1-1/4-Inch trailer hitch receiver that we offer for your 2012 Hyundai Elantra Sedan, like all other hitches available for your vehicle, is a Class I receiver rated for a maximum tongue weight of 200 lbs. This means that the weight of your carrier and your bikes together must remain within this tongue weight limit. You will need to choose a Class I bike carrier intended specifically to fit your hitch. The link provided will take you to our product page for all available...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2013 Nissan Altima Coupe for Use with Hitch Bike Rack
  • The light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches that we offer for your 2013 Nissan Altima Coupe, Draw-Tite # 24801 and Curt # C11357, are limited to carrying 2 bikes regardless of the bike rack's own bike capacity. This has to do with the hitch; Class I hitches simply cannot handle the load of more than two bikes. Between the two I suggest the Draw-Tite. While there are hitch adapters like # HTAD that allow installing a 2-inch rack like your Kuat NV into a smaller hitch, these are not a viable...

  • Platform Style 2 Bike Rack to be Used on Rear of Jayco 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I have a solution for you, but the Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 is not rated for use on the back of a 5th wheel or towed trailer because of the extra movement that occurs at the back of those applications. Instead, I recommend that you go with the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers # S64663 which is also a platform rack like the XTC-2 and has the same 35-lbs per bike capacity. The great thing about this rack is that it can be attached to either a 2" hitch or the...

  • Which Hitch Mounted Bike Racks Can I Use on My 2007 Toyota Prius Receiver Hitch
  • Yes, you will be able to use a Class I bike rack to carry two bikes on the Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch, part # 24808. When selecting a bike rack you need to be sure it is rated for a Class I hitch because Class II accessories will not fit in Class I hitches, the shank will be too long. You will also need to measure the distance between the hitch pin hole and the farthest rear point of the rear bumper once the hitch is installed to determine the best fit for a bike rack on your vehicle. Some...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2010 Honda Insight
  • For your 2010 Honda Insight I would recommend the CURT Class I Trailer Hitch, item # 11051, and a two bike rack like the Swagman XC2 Wheel Mount Bike Rack, item # S64650, or the Reese 2 Bike Folding Rack, item # 63120. The only hitch available for the Insight is a Class I hitch and the weight capacity of Class I hitches will not allow for carrying more than two bikes. Putting bikes on a rack farther out than where two bikes will fit can cause too much torque on the hitch or vehicle frame...

  • Reese Bike Carrier for a Class II Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • Yes, Reese bike carrier # 63120 will fit the Curt Class II trailer hitch # C12100 on your 2014 Subaru Forester. This bike carrier does have a 1-1/4 inch shank and it is compatible with Class I and II trailer hitches. Since you are using the Curt hitch with a bike carrier, Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050 for any non-trailer load for their warranty requirements. I have included a link that shows how the strap works.

  • Hitch Clearance for Bike Rack on 2011 Ford Fusion
  • We offer two Class I hitches for your 2011 Ford Fusion, the Draw-Tite # 24865 and the Curt # C11390. I reviewed the two linked installation videos for these items to compare their clearance dimensions and they differ by only 1/4-inch. The Curt hitch will provide approximately 5-1/4-inches of clearance from the hitch pin hole to the back of the bumper cover, while the Draw-Tite dimension is 5-inches. The clearance provided by compatible Class I bike racks will vary between racks. A new...

  • Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier Used on a 2012 Camry 2005 Altima and a 1994 Accord
  • The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, will fit each of your vehicles as long as the vehicles do not have spoilers. Thule does not recommend using this rack on vehicles with spoilers. According to Thule, the racks are not test fit on spoiler equipped vehicles, and a fit cannot be guaranteed. If you will be carrying any women's, children's or alternative frame bikes, I would also recommend the Thule adapter bar, #TH982XT, for womens and childrens bikes for a secure mount. If...

  • What Do I Need to Use Hitch 24733 with my 2004 Chevy Cavalier
  • The hitch, # 24733, includes all the mounting hardware you need to install the hitch to your 2004 Chevy Cavalier. In order to tow a trailer, you also need to purchase a drawbar, and the ball itself that sits on the drawbar. The drawbar for this hitch is part # 3592 and the manufacturer says to only use this drawbar and only in the rise position. This bar includes a hitch pin and clip. Your drawbar requires a ball with a shank diameter of 3/4 inch. I have added a page link that will...

  • Can a Class II Three Bike Rack be Used with a Draw-Tite Trailer Class I Hitch on a 2008 Rondo by Kia
  • The only hitches available for the Kia Rondo are Class I hitches, like the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Hitch, item # 24797. Class I hitches are limited to 2 bikes because of the torque applied to the hitch and vehicle frame by the weight of the bikes and bike rack and the distance they stick out behind the vehicle. The Reese Hitch Bike Rack, item # 63123 will not work in a Class I hitch because there is a stop located in the receiver that limits the hitch to the installation of Class...

  • 2008 Infiniti G35 Sedan Trailer Hitch Differences and Bike Rack Recommendation
  • All three of the hitches available for your 2008 Infinity G35 Sedan are Class I hitches. I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, item # 24831. The hitches all install in the same location at the center of the rear bumper on the vehicle, none are more hidden than the others, and all require trimming a small area of the fascia underneath the vehicle. Once the hitch is installed you will be able to simply slide a bike rack into the receiver and secure it with a pin and clip which is included...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit for 2012 Nissan Rogue With Spoiler On Rear Hatch
  • I do have a solution that would allow you to carry bikes with your 2012 Nissan Rogue, but the fact that the vehicle is equipped with the spoiler means that unfortunately you cannot use a trunk mounted bike rack. The mounting straps for the rack would need to pass over the spoiler, and the bike rack manufacturers have found that the spoiler is not strong enough to bear the weight of the bikes and the rack. Using a trunk mount rack would damage the spoiler. Your best bet would be to install...

  • Can Reese 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack Carry 1 Mens Mountain Bike and 1 Trek Road Bike
  • The Reese 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack # 63120 referenced in your question is designed to carry 2 bikes and can support bike top tube diameters of up to 2-1/4 inches. As long as the top tubes on your bikes do not exceed this dimension, this rack will be able to carry both of them. You will load the first bike on the cradle closest to the vehicle. You will then load the second bike onto the cradle so that the handle bars face in the opposite direction from the first bike. This is...

  • Keeping Bike Tires Straight when Using Reese Bike Rack 63120 on a 2017 Toyota Corolla
  • Yes, the Reese bike rack # 63120 will fit Curt trailer hitch # C11265 on your 2017 Toyota Corolla. This bike rack does not have the ability to keep the bike tires straight while driving. In order to keep the tires straight you can use hook and loop straps # SR26260. I have linked a video featuring these straps for you. Since you have the Curt hitch you will also need to use stabilization strap # 18050 per Curt's warranty requirements. I have included a link to a video showing how it...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for 2006 Honda Accord Sedan
  • Deciding how to carry bikes on a 2006 Honda Accord is tricky because your vehicle has a 2 bike limit when using a hitch-mount bike rack, however you can carry 3 bikes if you use a trunk mount bike rack. If carrying 3 bikes is a priority, for a 3 bike trunk-mount carrier I recommend the Thule Raceway 3 # TH9002PRO. This is my favorite bike rack because of the retractable cables and hooks that you use to anchor your bike rack to your vehicle. These cables will not fatigue like straps and...

  • Can a Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Be Used on a 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander
  • What you have heard is correct, none of the rack manufacturers recommend using a trunk mounted bike rack on your vehicle. In order for the top connecting straps to fasten to the top of the liftgate, they must pass over the spoiler at the top of the liftgate. The manufacturers have found that this spoiler is not strong enough to bear the weight of the rack plus the bikes loaded onto it. Attempting to install and use a trunk mount rack on the 2007 Outlander would most likely result in the...

  • Bike Carrying Solutions for 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible

Neither Yakima or Thule recommend a trunk mount rack for the PT Cruiser convertible. Your best bet would be to install a Draw-Tite Class I receiver hitch like part # 24759 and use it to provide an attachment point for a hitch mounted bike rack. The Pro Series 2 bike rack, part # 63120 is an inexpensive rack that works best...

  • Recommend Hitch and Hitch Mounted 3 Bike Rack For 2010 Ford Fusion
  • For your 2010 Ford Fusion, I recommend the Draw-Tite - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4, part # 24865. This is a quality hitch and has the lowest price point of all the hitches available for you 2010 Fusion. The only size hitch available for the 2010 Fusion is Class I, 1-1/4 Inch. With a Class I Hitch you will be limited to carrying 2 bikes because of the torque applied by the third bike, farthest away from the vehicle. That amount of torque could overload the hitch, even if you are within...

  • Will Reese Bike Carrier Fit a 1967 Volkswagen Beetle
  • If your 1967 Volkswagen Beetle has a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver at the back then you could use Reese bike carrier # 63120. If you do not have a trailer hitch you will need to have one customer fabricated for you by a machine/welding shop since there are no custom fit hitches available for the 1967 models.

This is a good, economic bike rack that will get the job done, just keep in mind that the maximum weight capacity of the bike rack is 66 lbs. If security is an issue for you, I recommend using the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # 63147, so secure your bike rack to your receiver, and the 10 foot Long Cable, part...

She stated that if your 2007 Chevy Cobalt has a floating spoiler (not fully connected to the vehicle and has a gap between the spoiler and the trunk), or an aftermarket spoiler, the Thule Speedway 2, # TH961XTR, will not fit. There is another option. You could install a trailer hitch and then a hitch mount bike rack. There are quite a few hitches available depending on the model Cobalt you have.

  • Weight of Reese 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Rack

This rack can't hold oblong or alternative framed (Women's, Children's, Step Through, BMX) style bikes, so you will need a Swagman Frame Adapter, part # 64005 in order to carry them.

In order to figure this out you can take a yardstick and hang it straight down the edge of your spare tire; then measure from the middle if your hitch pin hole out to the yardstick. If that distance is less than 11-1/2" then you would be able to use the Reese # 63120. Please keep in...
