Video Transcript for Reese Explore 4 Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Reese tilting 4-bike rack for 2" hitches. Part number is 63124. The Reese Eclipse is a hanging-style 4-bike rack. It's got very sturdy construction and it's a really good cost-effective solution to transport all different types of bikes anywhere you might want to go.Another great thing about the rack is that it is approved for use on motor homes, fifth wheel, and bumper-pull campers. Now it is designed to work with all different types of bikes, whether that's mountain, road bikes, women's bikes, children's bikes. Rather than having the traditional two arms that come out, we're just going to have one center cradle in all four positions for our bike to rest down and on.

Here you can see we're using a bike adapter bar. That just helps us maintain the levelness of our bike. If we weren't using that, we could still put it underneath our tube here. But you could imagine that back end would be kicked up a little bit higher than the front, and it's not going to allow them to sit as even as with the bar.Also to help increase visibility you'll see here on the back we've got a built-in reflector. As lights hit that, people will be able to see that and determine that you do have a rack on the back of the vehicle.Now all along the top section here you're going to see six oblong holes.

These are designed so we can pass a cable lock through and around each of our bikes, and then reconnect it at the back. This will allow you to lock the bikes to the rack. By using a cable lock you're able to secure the bikes to the rack so you won't have to worry about them disappearing. Now with bikes loaded we are able to tilt the rack away from our vehicle. Now when you do this with this type of rack, you want to keep in mind your bikes are probably going to make contact with each other, and it's likely the larger bikes will touch the ground.

So while you can do it, if you have higher end or nicer bikes, not something we necessarily recommend.You're also probably going to need two people to do this if you have it fully loaded. We'll have AJ come in and help us out. He's going to lift on the back of the rack slightly. That's going to help us remove the pin. As you can see, you just want to guide it down pretty gently until either one of the tires on your bikes makes contact with the ground or it rests on that rubber gasket or that rubber piece there.

As you can see, full access into the hatch. Now that's going to save you a lot of time and a lot of headaches as compared to unloading all of the bikes and tilt it away. But remember those things that we talked about. Then to bring it back up, just going to reverse the process.Now when not in use, the shank of the rack will also fold up against the mast so it's not sticking out there. This is going to allow you an easier time storing it. Now to install the rack we need to line up the threaded hole that's here on the left side with the pin hole in our hitch, so we'll just be sliding that in. Then we'll thread in our provided anti-rattle bolt. This should be threaded in from the left side. You want to be sure that you've got your lock washer on there when you do it. We'll get that ran down hand tight. Then we're going to tighten it with a 24mm socket. We'll want that to be nice and snug. Then we can install the clip. That's just going to slide right in.Now a couple things I like. You can see the steel cable here. That's going to help ensure we don't lose our pin. As the rack comes down, it's going to rest on the rubber portion right here. That'll help make sure that we don't have any scratches or anything on that powder coat to help resist corrosion for a long time.Now in all four of our cradles you can see we've got the V-shaped rubber that's in place here. That allows the top tube of our bike to rest down and in. We're not going to have to worry about damage. Also, that larger groove you see on the bottom can help accommodate your brake and shifter cables.Now the cradles, the main portion of the rack, and the shank going into your car have all been treated with a nice powder coat finish. This should help to resist corrosion for a very long time.Now to get your bike installed on the rack you're of course going to want to remove the hook and loop straps, get them open. Then we're just going to place the top tube of the bike into the cradle. At that point we'll bring our strap through the ring on the other side and pull it down tight just like that. We can do the same thing for our other one.Now the cradles and straps have been designed to work with the smallest top tubes on the market all the way up to 2-1/4" in diameter. Now at this point you're ready to load up the rest of your bikes. You do want to keep in mind the rack has a 120 pound maximum capacity so you want to keep your bikes to about 30 pounds a piece. The heaviest bike should go in the front. As you go back you want those to get lighter. We found it's generally best to alternate the direction of the handlebars, so we have this one loaded this way. Our next one we would load that way.Now we can take just a second and compare the Eclipse to another very, very similar bike rack. In this case we're going to go with the Swagman Trailhead. Really good, well built bike rack just like what we have here with the Eclipse. It has a dual-arm setup and some pretty big cradles on it with rubber straps. Now those cradles are going to offer anti-sway control. This rocking motion that we have hr with the bikes will be eliminated slightly using that setup. But it can be harder to get bikes loaded up on there. Especially with when you've got the smaller areas like this, it's going to offer you a little bit more of a challenge. It's a 4-bike hanging-style rack just like what we have here. Tilts away from the vehicle very similarly to what this is going to do.Now a few other things to keep in mind. The Trailhead will work with 1-1/4" or with 2" hitches, where the Eclipse is going to be limited to just the 2" hitch. The weight capacity on that Trailhead is a little bit higher. Where the Eclipse is at 30 pounds per pike, the Trailhead's going to be at 35. Now that's really only going to come into effect probably if you've got ebikes that you're trying to load up. Then the last thing would be that while we can tilt this one away from our vehicle with the bikes loaded, it's not going to be something we can do with the Trailhead.Now one area I think the Trailhead does have an advantage over the Eclipse is going to be in the shank design. With the Trailhead, it comes up about 3" as it comes back. That's going to help to give us more ground clearance. That can be especially important if your hitch is very close to the ground. Now in another area where the Eclipse is going to have an advantage over the Trailhead is that we're able to use it with fifth wheel and bumper-pull campers. With the Trailhead, it's not approved for use on those.The Eclipse also receives really positive customer reviews. It's like Daniel A. said: "I was thrilled with how well packaged the rack was and I had no trouble assembling it and putting it on my vehicle. It fits great. The bikes I have fit on the rack well. It's one men's mountain bike, one women's 10-speed, and one child's bike. The child's bike is a close fit but it all works well. Great product." After one year out he said, "One year out and this product is still as great as it was when I first got it. No complaints here."Here on our test course we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or a pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, parking garage, or driveway.That'll complete our look at the Reese Explore tilting 4-bike rack, part number 63124.

Good bike rack; especially for the price. The anti-rattle bolt mates with a nut that is welded inside the rack. On mine, the nut's threads were fouled, so initial install required excessive torque. But the bolt cut its way through, and is now successfully installed. Note: The nut for this anti-rattle mechanism prevents using a locking hitch pin. Note: You will see significantly decreased range with any rack installed unless you're driving very slowly. Even after considering these points, I would still recommend this product. And I would purchase the same one if I knew these things ahead of time. 5/5 stars 718629

Great value great rack. I will have to drill another hole for it it to work with J pin below. The rack has a screw already welded into it so the locking J-Pin wont work. Review the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches - 63201 696826

Another easy to install product that fit very well into the purchased receiver. Once installed and loaded with bikes, we drove approximately 400 miles before unloading the bikes and tucking the unit away. Reinstallation was quick adn efficient as was loading the bikes for the return trip. Well spent money. 219137


Comments
We repeated our trip from a year go and the bike rack still works very well. We did experience some spacing issues with a fat tire bike, but learned that if we removed the pedals and altered the positions of the bikes when loading, everything fit well. Very good investment and now when we take the bikes on vacation, it is saved money as the cost of renting bikes has been eliminated and in the second year, the money saved has exceeded the amount invested in this rack and the receiver.

still going. safety attachment for the tilt release pin didnt last long but not a problem. mounts and dismounts easily, hook and loop straps still work well. maybe side mounted reflectors/labels would be nice as it protrudes quite a bit and is somewhat unobtrusive when no bikes are mounted on it. still a happy customer.

The Pro Series 4 bike rack was an excellent choice for my needs. Sturdy construction, features that bike racks costing 4 times as much have and ease of assembly (under 15 minutes) made it a good buy. We will use it occasionally when we want to go riding with grandkids so it has to hold 2 adult and 2 kids bikes. I might need to buy an adapter bar once I see how the kids bikes rest on the cradle. I attached the rack to the car hitch and it felt very sturdy with minimal looseness. The tilt feature is great since it was installed on an Audi Q7. Deliver was quick(3 days) and phone service by Cathy was informative. Pictures and reviews were helpful for determining what bike rack would work better for our needs. For $119 I am very satisfied. 158973


Comments
I used the rack numerous times this summer. It is easy to install and remove. Pretty heavy construction and good locking mechanism. Did not need to buy the adapter bar as bikes fit fine without it but with some maneuvering of bikes. Still satisfied with this purchase.

Just a follow-up note concerning the bike rack: it is the easiest, most efficient bike rack that I have seen - simple, inexpensive, and faster loading than any of those of my friends. They envy this one.

Very solid, ruggedly built receiver hitch rack. Spacing is good for four bikes. Design is best for road bikes or hardtail mountiain bikes with traditional diamond frame geometry. That's what I have, so it works well. May not be suitable for newer hardtail mountain bikes with more extreme frame geometry (can carry but bike will be nose down). Same for mixte frame (girls bikes, but they will be nose up). May or may not be a good fit for curved tube cruisers - depends on the design. Probably not suitable for full suspension bikes or bikes with radical departures from diamond frame design. But if you have a diamond frame bike with a traditional top tube, this rack is just what you need, and one of the most solid and easy to use racks you can get - just as good as the major brands at less than 1/3 of their price. Easy to install - insert in receiver then tighten the bolt with a wrench to secure the rack. Pivots down to allow tailgate to open on a van or SUV. May not fit on an SUV with tailgate mounted spare tire. A very good quality rack for traditional bikes. Couldn't be happier. 453864

The bike rack was very easy to put together and it fit my Jeep perfectly. I wish I had followed the advice that I read before ordering that suggested I buy the lock for it. Perhaps you could include it as part of the package and increase the cost accordingly. 140447

I'm from Canada, and strong well made products like this tend to be hard to find, and quite expensive. I bought this bike rack, and the to carry it. Both are extremely well made and were an excellent price. I would definitely recommend these products. Note that someone who is quite petit may find this bike rack a bit heavy to move around and mount into the hitch. 554382

We have been using this rack for almost three months now. It is sturdy and easy to get the bikes off and on. We have only used it for two mountain bikes (one mens and one womens - we have not needed anything extra for the womens one). Although this is a great product and is a great price and we use it A LOT we are disappointed that we did not realize that is does not tilt down if you want to leave it on your vehicle without bikes. (This was our mistake by not paying better attention when we purchased it). It does stick out very far and I have hit my head on it several times. It is a bit heavy for me to put it on the car alone (my husband has to do it). Again, this is a great product BUT if you want to leave it on without bikes get one that tilts down when not in use, I would trade this one in a heart beat for one that does if I could. 43269

Good, sturdy rack. Extremely fast delivery. Just installed and put four bikes on. Drove about 7 miles around the neighborhood hitting every bump and hole I could find. The rack swayed a little to each side with sharp turns but all stayed well secured. I'll probably put a shimmey on the inside the reciever to reduce the sway a little and tie wheels together etc... to make it more secure. I think it will suit might needs just fine. 570137

I can't say enough good things about this product. It arrived on time and in perfect condition. It was also very easy to put together and only took me about 10 minutes total. The quality of the hitch is top notch and should last a long time. It's very easy to get our bikes on and off the hitch and we can't wait to go on some bike adventures. 228678

Just finished putting together and mounting my new bike rack on the back of my Highlander. It took less than 30 minutes to assemble and mount on vehicle. I then placed my bike on the rack and took a brief drive with it . The only thing I noticed is that you may want to use a bunge cord to hold the front wheel in place to keep it from swinging when driving. I may also consider looking for a small padlock to replace the hitch pin clip for security purposes. The tilting feature, for ease of access in to vehicle cargo area is also a plus. While I have not used it yet for a 'road trip', I feel very satisfied with the quality, function and price of the bike carrier. 347119


Comments
I use the bike rack on our Toyota Highlander and have been pleased with it. At first I thought a 4 bike rack was more than I needed, but now am glad I bought it instead of a two bike unit. A couple of nuisance items, not a big deal: The threaded locking pin that holds the unit on the trailer hitch, slides in from the left. For a left handed person, it is less convenient than I would have preferred. I was also curious about it being metric instead of standard, again not a big deal. Also - the hole it slides in to is recessed making it difficult to tighten up with anything other than a socket with an extension. Thinking ahead, it is not much of a problem, but I have to be sure i have a metric socket plus extension with me when it comes time to remove. Having said this, there may be a security reason for this design.

You can't beat this bike rack for the price. Build quality is better than friends Yakima bike rack that was three times the cost. Reese products are great to begin with. Something else to consider...this rack has the longest horizontal reach receiver, 8.5" from pin hole to vertical upright, meaning I was able to leave our camp box on the RV bumper. The thread in hitch pin keeps it nice and tight too. This is also rated for RV use. Winner winner chicken dinner. 699659

The value is excelent. As other reviews have indicated it is a bit heavy but it is very sturdy. the other racks we have had were lighter but the bikes scraped into each other a took the finish off. The racks were for a Rave 4 the back door doesn't open all the way but there is enough room for access. I don't usually do these types of evaluations, actually this is the first, but I felt that the customer service, product, price, assembly, and the quickness of delivery were cause to write this. 210878

We purchased this bike rack last year and mostly use it on the back of our camper when we travel. It is an excellent product I never worry that it is doing its job.

Had some doubts since it was lot less expensive than the Thule Parkway that I've used in the past. But I was pleasantly surprised. The construction is solid. The design is simple and effective. Biggest difference being the single support vs. double bar of the Thule. Used it this weekend on a long road trip transporting a mt bike. Solid! Key is to balance the bike on the rails. The bolting hitch pin work great. Zero rattle. The support bar does not tilt like some of the ones out there but not a big deal for me. The whole rack does and is actually a far better design than the Thule.....much stronger. Can't go wrong with this one. Or etrailer for that matter. 63984

Assembled and used the hitch over memorial day weekend. Attached to 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, carried 2 adult bikes, 2 children's bikes. PROS: - Sturdy - Heavy duty - Well made CONS: - Reflector on the end arrived broken - Weight. This thing is very heavy by itself. - Allen wrench included is useless; too small to be used to tighten the screws due to location - Tilt mechanism didn't tilt low enough to get my tailgate down; I removed the stop bolt to enable this. - When tilting down, the bikes obviously like to shift around, and depending on how they are mounted, this could (and did) result in some less than favorable 'handlebar-in-spokes' conditions. - Also when tilting down, it is pretty much a two-person job when bikes are loaded due to weight. One person supports the rack and the other pulls/inserts the pin. - Some slack is built into the hitch piece, the pivot pin, and the lock pin, so the bikes shake around side to side some. 1 layer of gorilla tape around the hitch removed some, but 2 layers was too much. - The pin that is included to lock the rack into your hitch is very strange. Its at least an inch longer than it needs to be for a 2" receiver, and for some reason its threaded for about 2" close to the non-pin end. The rest of the bolt is thinner as well. - Children's bikes may or may not be able to fit on here on the top rail of the frame. One of the bikes I had, I had to attach it to the bottom rail instead, since I couldn't get the frame around the mounting blocks. It still seemed to ride ok, its just a little worry-some. Overall summary: - This is a fine hitch, and most of the time it will be on the back of my fifth wheel trailer, so I won't need the tilt mechanism. If you are purchasing this mainly due to the tilt, I would look elsewhere, since it's pretty painful to use, even if your tailgate clears it. 198188

I am so excited to begin using this. Through the help of Etrailer.com, they were able to find me a bike rack and hitch that fit my Rogue. The employees were understanding of my budget and assured me that getting a hitch was a much safer bet. In a matter of a few hours I had fully installed a hitch and bike rack. What I love about this so far is that when I went to the store I was able to remove the pin and it gave me enough of an angle so that I could completely open my trunk without having to remove the entire product off the hitch. My only issue is that the instruction manual does not give you the tool size you need to tighten it to the hitch. Trial and error we found that a 7/8ths is what it needed. 546716

Well made bike rack. Took a trip to Florida from Missouri and it held my bike and bike trailer very well. I like that it has anti-rattle pin that comes with it. Had to purchase a separate lock for it but that is fairly And reasonably priced - so no big deal. Specialty pin that holds the rack in upright position has a wire holder (so You dont loose the pin). So this wire holder snaped off after couple of short trips as it wasnt welded strongly enough, but I was able to re-attach it with home made ring/loop and a self taping screw. Overall good product and highly recommend it. 302279

Unfortunately, I do not have any information on the longevity of the frame cradles. If any of your bikes have an alternative frame then you will want to use an adapter bar like the Bike...

  • 4-Bike Rack for 2014 Toyota Camry
    There is not an adapter available to allow the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 to be used with a 1-1/4" hitch, but there are economical racks available that will work for you. For a hitch, the Draw-Tite # 36540 fits your 2014 Toyota Camry and is a Class II, 1-1/4" hitch and the 4-bike rack I recommend checking out that will work with it is the Swagman Trailhead # S63380. This rack secures your bikes with anti-sway cradles that prevent your bikes from coming into contact with each other...

  • Will Reese Eclipse Bike Rack Fit a 2015 Toyota RAV4
    Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Tilting Item # 63124 will fit your 2015 Toyota RAV4 as long as it has a 2 inch hitch receiver opening. If the rack has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening then I recommend Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # S63380. This rack will work with 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitches. But, if the trailer hitch on your RAV4 is a Class I then it is limited to a maximum of 2 bikes. I have linked video reviews on both bike racks for you.

  • Will Reese Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a Curt 2 Inch Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Toyota RAV4
    I have included a link to all of the trailer hitches that are designed to fit your 2011 Toyota RAV4. If you do not see a video specifically on a 2011 for a given custom fit product it just means that we have not had the chance to install that particular product on that particular vehicle. Most custom fit products fit a range of model years and even other vehicles. The most popular hitch for your 2011 RAV4 is Curt hitch # C13149. We do have a video of it on a 2011 and I have linked it...

  • Bike Rack Sways With 4 Bikes Loaded on Reese Eclipse Carrier 63124 on 2007 Honda Odyssey
    These two bike carriers are similar overall but differ in that the Eclipse uses a single arm, 2-inch shank and offers 8 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright mast. Your Translite uses dual arms, fits both hitch sizes and provides 11 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright mast. This additional 3 inches of distance will tend to allow the Translite carrier to flex a bit more under load. My contact at ProSeries advises that...

  • Can the Reese 4 Bike Rack # 63124 Carry 26 Inch Cruisers
    The Reese # 63124 bike rack should be able to handle your 26 inch cruisers with no problem. Since this rack uses hook and loop straps to secure the bikes to the rack, and the rack does not use anti-sway cradles that prevent the bikes from swaying back and forth and striking each other or the vehicle carrying them, this is a rack I would typically recommend for an occasional rider who is transporting their bikes short distances. The rack has a 120 lb weight capacity. If you will be frequently...

  • Parts Needed to Install the Reese Eclipse Bike Rack on a 2006 Honda Pilot
    You will not need any additional parts to install the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack, # 63124, on your 2006 Honda Pilot. I have attached an installation video we made on a 2007 Honda Pilot for you to check out. You will see that this bike is an excellent fit for your vehicle and offers plenty of clearance for the rear hatch. The only additional parts that you may want to pick up are the hitch lock, # 5200, a cable lock like part # e98891, and a bike adapter bar, # 64005. The bike adapter...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount 4-Bike Bike Rack that Wont Interfere with Opening Hatch on a 2010 Honda Odyssey
    First, it is not recommended on the Reese Eclipse bike rack to tilt it down with the bikes loaded. The rack was not designed for the additional stress. Although you would be able to open the rear hatch with the rack tilted down as shown in the video I have linked. This rack would not be the best option for women's bikes and bikes with alternative frames. This is because the cradles do not rotate to compensate for the slant in those style bikes. You would likely need to use bike adapter...

  • Lock Recommendation for the Hitch Pin of the Reese Eclipse Bike Rack
    What you will need is a Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 5200. The locking portion of this locking hitch pin will need to get removed and used on the hitch pin from your Reese Bike Rack # 63124.

  • Trailer Hitch & 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Tilting Rack for 2008 Nissan Rogue
    Since you need to transport 4 adult bikes, I recommend that you opt for a Class III hitch receiver as this will offer a higher tongue weight (TW) rating of up to 350 pounds and best handle the vertical load from your 4-bike carrier. The product page link provided will show you all three options for 2-inch Class III hitch receivers. A good cost-effective choice is the Draw-Tite # 75902 which installs without welding or drilling and includes all required installation hardware. I have included...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack that Will Clear the Spare Tire on a 2003 Jeep Liberty
    On the trailer hitches that we installed on 2003 Jeep Liberty models the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the spare tire measured from 10 inches up to 15 inches. You will need a bike rack that can clear that distance to fit with the spare tire in place. Reese Eclipse bike rack # 63124 measures 8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast so it would not work. The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR measures 13-1/2 inches...

  • How to Attach a Womens Bike to the Reese Eclipse Bike Rack 63124
    The best way to attach a womens bike to the Reese Eclipse bike rack part # 63124 is going to be to use a bike frame adapter bar like the part # UB01 which connects at the steering stem and seat post to provide a horizontal attachment point for the rack.

  • Are Extra Supports Needed for the Reese Eclipse When Used with Womens/Kids Bikes
    Yes, the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack part # 63124 should work just fine with your two adult and two kids bikes. However, because of the alternative frame on the womens bike, you will also most likely need to use the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # 64005. I have attached a photo of the adapter bar in use. In regards to the kids bike with training wheels, I don't see any issue as to why this would be a problem for the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack so long as the horizontal top...

  • How to Make a Reese Bike Rack More Stable in the Hitch of a 2009 Toyota RAV4
    Sounds like you will need an anti-rattle device to make your bike rack more stable in your Toyota's trailer hitch. I recommend the Pro Series Anti-Rattle Device for 2 x 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receivers, # PS63091. The Pro Series device will insert between the trailer hitch receiver and your bike rack. The adjustable bolt and jam nut will allow you to stabilize the bike rack and help eliminate the wobble in the trailer hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch Lock for Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack for 2 Hitches # 63124
    Hitch lock # e98882 would not fit properly with bike rack # 63124. The bike rack has a weldnut in the shank that will accept its own threaded hitch bolt. A regular hitch lock has not been tested or confirmed to fit in this bike rack. What you can do is use just the lock part of lock # 5200 and it will fit on the threaded bolt for the bike rack.
