Approved for use on cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and motorhomes - not approved for fifth wheels or towable campers

Recumbent bike riders used to struggle when searching for a hitch-mounted rack that suits their needs. All it took was a little ingenuity to create the XC-Extended rack - the perfect solution for carrying recumbent bikes. This platform-style, hitch-mounted two-bike carrier transports bikes with extra-long wheelbases - like recumbents - with all the convenience of a standard platform rack.

Swagman XC-Extended XC wheel hoopsSwagman XC-Extended XTC wheel hoops

This rack comes with black XC wheel hoops, which provide a stable base for mounting your bicycles. The XC hoops adjust with a hand knob and slide along the arms of your rack to accommodate bikes with wheelbases up to 52" and tires up to 3-1/2" wide. The bonus with this bike carrier is that silver XTC wheel hoops are also included to give you that extra length required for carrying a recumbent. Simply swap out the XC wheel hoops with the XTCs and you will add 14" to the maximum wheelbase capacity, for a total of 66". The XTC hoops hold tires up to 2-1/2" wide and include rubber straps to secure your wheels to the rack.

Swagman XC-Extended measurements with XC wheel hoops installed

When the XC cradles are installed traditionally, they measure 65" outside to outside and 37" inside to inside.

Swagman XC-Extended measurements with XTC wheel hoops installed

The XTC wheel hoops - when installed traditionally - measure 81" outside to outside and 51-1/2" inside to inside.

Swagman XC-Extended with XTC hoops positioned for maximum wheel base capacity

To stretch the wheelbase capacity a few more inches, mount two XTC wheel hoops at the end of each arm on the same side of the bike carrier. Doing this increases the maximum wheel base capacity to 68".

Swagman XC-Extended bike rack ratcheting arms

Regardless of which wheel hoops you use on the rack, the upright arm offers the same great features. This arm includes a pair of ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes securely in place to prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact during transport. The hooks feature soft padding to protect your bike's frame, are offset so that you can carry two bikes of the same size simultaneously, and can be locked with a 1/4" padlock. Fold down the entire upright arm by pulling a pin at the base; this enables you to reach all the gear in your vehicle's rear cargo area obstacle free.

Swagman XT-Extended bike rack baseSwagman XC-Extended with arms folded up

You can release the side arms of the rack by pulling pins at the base, then fold them up for convenient storage.

Swagman XC-Extended threaded hitch pin and clip

The bike rack includes a threaded hitch pin and a clip that work with a built-in anti-wobble device in the shank to eliminate rattle in the hitch receiver during transport. You can replace the pin and clip with Swagman's anti-rattle lock (S64029; sold separately) to lock the bike carrier to your vehicle.

Product was delivered as ordered. It was about 1 1/2 weeks later than the original estimated delivery date. Little information was available during the delay, so I had to call twice to get an update on the delivery. Friendly operators, but doesn't change the actual versus expectation gap. 789813

Rack arrived a day earlier than promised. Very easy to assemble. I did not need the extensions, but glad I have them for the future. The sleeve that fits the 2" receiver is a little loose so whole rack is wobbly, but should be able to correct with some sort of shim. I mounted on front of truck (because I pull a travel trailer) so clearance between inside bike pedal and truck grill really close. I wrapped pedal in towel to (hopefully) to prevent damage to truck grill. Very easy to load bikes on and off. Ratcheting clamp hold the bikes down well. There is a hole for a lock on the ratcheting clamp. So far, very happy with my purchase. 707955

This bike rack comes with a threaded hitch pin to help keep the rack from wobbling inside the hitch receiver, but if youre still seeing too much play, the Quiet Hitch # RM-061
Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches
$43.17
anti-rattle device is another great option to remove slack between the shank and receiver. You could also try securing the top of the bike rack to your tow loops with a ratchet strap like part # 317-402400

I love this trailer. Only one problem is that the 2" adapter is a bit loose in the hitch. Planning to add a shim to correct that. I have a recumbent and the adjustment wheel brackets work perfect. I highly recommend it to other "bent" riders. 94172

I have two long wheel base recumbents. Would they both fit on the Swagman S64650 EXT? Wheel base is about 70 Thanks, Dale
-- comment by: Dale - 08/21/2013

The maximum wheel base is 66 inches, so your recumbents may be a bit long. Hollywood Racks, part HR1000R, will accommodate up to a 74 inch wheel base and it is a similar design as the Swagman.

Best bang for the buck you're going to find anywhere (5*). Fits my long wheelbase recumbent with additional kit (4*). Folds out of the way, very accommodating, I can fit my [email protected] on it with 4" tires (5*). Use the 3/4 hexed bolt for a sturdier connection (4*). If you're anal about your bikes finish, put a sock or sheepskin over the eva padded hook. It will scratch if you do not (3*). 676759

Bought this rack to transport a SWB and A LWB recumbent. Ordered it after reading some reports on it. We were in the middle of a move from Georgia to Wisconsin and had to leave one of our vehicles in Atlanta. I found a SWB in Tennessee and needed to transport it to Wisconsin with our vehicle when I flew back to Atlanta to drive the our vehicle home. I had the carrier sent to my friends home in Atlanta. When I arrived from the airport I was able to install the primary support into the 2" receiver and bolt in place. The bolt tightened down the support so there was no play in the connection. I then took off for Wisconsin with a stop in Tennessee to test drive/purchase the bike and take it home. I had a lot riding on the performance this bike rack. If it didn't work I would forego the purchase of the bike I had found. Got to Tennessee and purchased the bike. Took the components out of the book and assembled them onto the primary support member. Adjustment of the tire holders to fit the wheel base was easy and fast, actually did it in the dark with a flash light. Really liked the removable pins with the ball detents in them. That made the entire process very simple and quick.We had the bike on the rack in less than 10 minutes. I transported the bike more than 900 miles with it on the rack. It performed perfectly at speeds above the posted limits. I have attached a photo showing it in our driveway at home. The only concern I have with the rack is the attachment of the rack to the primary support. This is not a tight compression fit and it wobbles a little. This causes the bike to behave a bit like a rocking horse when it is on the rack. This connection condition, while not critical needs to be a little tighter to make it a rock solid mount. I highly recommend this rack, it performs as promised and is a great value. 124762

I purchased this hitch to haul bikes around. I purchased a similar hitch, from another company, a year ago at a much higher price. The etrailer is easily it's equal and less expensive. It is easy to assemble, though the written instructions need improvement. E.g., there are washers included for the bolts and other connections, but the instructions fail to tell you where to place them. 808089

The set up instructions were awful but the rack wasn't too hard to set up. There may be a better way to keep the rack from wobbling near the hitch but I haven't found out how yet. If the instructions were better maybe I could. It fits both my road and recumbent bikes as advertised. 792452

They explained what I need to measure on my brakes because I have a recumbent and a regular bike. It came with great instructions and it was easy to put together. It is well-built and easy to use. I always had a bike rack that hung and this is much better. I highly recommend it and once again the customer service was great. 720619

I bought the Swagman Extended platform rack because I have a very long recumbent bike. The bike fits onto the rack perfectly and very securely. The rack is solid and very well-made--there is nothing cheap about it. It is a quality product. When I had an installation problem, Jamie at etrailer was incredibly helpful--she even had a Swagman representative call and help me. Incredible customer service! Thanks Jamie & Ian. 571951

The unit is well engineered and the quality is excellent. Easy assemble and all the parts were there. I recommend this to anyone with a recumbent bike. With the unit collapsed, it doesn't have sufficient clearance with my spare tire to be able to open the rear swinging door. 2" more would do it. Spare tire size might be the reason. 431886



- S64650-EXT
by:

The product itself seems excellent--well-crafted, solid construction with quality materials. Time will tell of course, but it looks and feels good. It fits into the back of my tow hitch, and my long wheelbase recumbent fits on it using the extended wheel wells. I had one significant assembly issue, but figured it out. I was instructed to insert two screws into part of the item that had holes, but the holes were not threaded. For a few minutes I was afraid that the product was defective. Then I noticed that a solid block of metal with two threaded holes had slipped out of position, almost invisible. With some tapping from a wooden mallet and working it with a screwdriver I got the block of metal into position and completed the assembly. 403314

    The short answer is yes, the Swagman XC-Extended bike rack # S64650-EXT can carry a girls bike. The only time it is really a concern is if the bike has a very low step through type of frame. The important measurement that is needed is from the ground up to the lowest part of the frame where the hook will secure the bike. If the distance from level ground to the top of the lowest part of the frame is 15 inches or more, it will hold the bike. I have included a link to a video review for you...

  • Measuring a Bike's Wheelbase to Confirm Fit on the Swagman XC Bike Rack
    I have a solution for you, however the Swagman XC, part # S64650 will not fit a bike with a 69 inch wheelbase.

    The Swagman XC-Extended Platform-Style 2 Recumbent Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # S64650-EXT weighs 38 lbs.

If you would care to respond with the year, make and model of your vehicle, I can suggest alternatives that would allow you to carry all 4 bikes using the hitch and some roof mounted racks.
