Video Transcript for Swagman XC 2 Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Swagman XC Platform Style 2 Bike Rack for 1 1/4 and 2 inch hitches. Part number S64650. The Swagman XC provides a stress free way to transport your bikes. Each bike is secured at both wheels and at the frame providing a more stable and safe ride. The cushion hooks are adjustable for a variety of different size bikes and ratchet down for a nice tight fit. The wheel cradles are adjustable along the platform to accommodate different wheel bases.

It features a 4 inch shank rise to give you a little more ground clearance here at the rear of the vehicle. It has a weight capacity of 35 pounds per bike and the whole bike rack has a powdered coat finish to resist rust and corrosion. The Swagman XC2 will accommodate a wide variety of bikes, mountain bikes, road bikes, Sally's bike, Jimmy's bike and even grandpa's bike. Now that we've gone on some of the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. We've got our adapter on there for our 2 inch by 2 inch receiver. If you wanted to take off the adapter, you can use class 1 and 2 1 1/4 hitches.

What we'll do is we'll place it into our receiver and we'll push it all the way in to line up with our pin holes, that looks pretty good. Then we can take our included anti rattle bolt and clip and thread that through. Now the nice thing about this anti rattle is it going to help reduce the play and most of the wobble within our hitch and our bike rack as you can see all of that there. Let's go ahead and finish tightening that up and put our clip in place. As you can see most of the play and the rattle is gone. We've got it in a stow position here.

This is a going to be a great space saver when not in use. Let's go ahead and get ready to load our bike. First thing we want to do is lower our two arms down. You want to come over here to this pin, go ahead and pull up and lower it down to realign the pin holes right here and just simply slip that back in to lock it in place and we'll repeat that same step on this side. Now this is the platform position of the bike rack, but before we grab our bike I'd like to show you that we can get into our rear hatch.

You can simply pull this pin down here to fold down our center mast and as you can see gives us the opportunity to remove any cargo, gear or groceries, anything we might have with us on our trip. Now we can raise our center mast back up to get ready to load our bike. We want to make sure that our frame hooks are all the way up and out of the way. We'll also want to make sure that our wheel cradles are slid out and loosened up ready to receive our wheels. Now we can grab our bike, insert the front wheel in the wheel cradle and the rear tire in the rear wheel cradle and we'll bring down our first hook. Now we can tighten up our wheel cradles. Now if we are just transporting one bike, we are going to lower down our frame hook on top of the other one but let's go ahead and load up one more bike, take it out on our test course and see how it perform. Here on our test course let's go into our slalom, this is going to show side to side action such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then on to our alternating speed bumps, this is going to show a twisting action such as going over pot holes or or uneven pavement. Then finally onto our solid speed bumps, this is going to show an up and down action such as coming in and out of the driveway, or out of a parking lot and that's going to complete our look at the Swagman XC Platform Style 2 Bike Rack for 1 1/4 and 2 inch hitches, part number S64650. .

We love our swagman! It is very easy to use. Installing it on our car, loading and unloading our bikes is now a simple task. We used to worry about traveling a distance with bikes on the back of the car - it is no longer a concern because they are very secure with this bike rack. Dealing with etrailer has been a pleasure as well! Efficient, professional and helpful! It is so nice to deal with a true customer service business rare find these days! Thank you!! 574429

Does the job well....easy to use, holds the bikes securely. And, it is lighter weight than my previous one, easier to mount/dismount to/from the car and to carry back and forth from its storage place. I did add some padding to the hooks that hold the top bars of the bikes, to protect the bikes' finish better. 574692

Great product, arrived on time and easy to set up. needed for a 3000 mile trip and bikes stayed in place from time loaded until removed. All was easy to use. Used on Nissan Frontier, wish bikes sat 1 inch farther away so tailgate would lower with inner bike removed. Great carrier for the price. 574303

We haven't used the rack much but when we did, it was great to be able to attach it in the receiver and load the bikes and take off. easy to adjust to the bikes and load and unload thanks to it, we are able to go places that suits our needs for biking. I most definitely would recommend it. 574099

Easy to put on and take off. Holds two bikes. A little shaky, but I don't drive far with the bike on the back, so works well for me. 575298

I have been looking at this product for months. Looking at the reviews and comparing it to other products. I decided on this one because of the ratings and the price. Everything about this product is spot-on with regards to description, installation and quality. If you don't have a bike carrier and need one, don't hesitate. I wished I had bought this one before my trunk mounted carrier, scratched up my car's paint. 572218

Product is easy to load bicycles and holds them very well,I do add an extra strap around the cycles for my own piece of mind. 574859

Perfect for our needs. We’ve been using for a year. The two hooks secure the bikes well and are easy to loosen and tighten, and the rack was easy to adjust to fit the different wheel bases of our bikes. Also, this summer when our rear tire imploded while driving on the highway with a car full to the brim with our belongings, the bike rack held steady. That was nice. 572057

The Swagman Bike Rack: It works fine, but just fine - not great. When I installed it the first time, one of the plastic tightening knobs broke. I called Swagman and they sent me two extras for free. So no real complaint there. The most noteworthy problem with this bike rack is that it is difficult to put on and take off the car. I think it is meant to be a permanent rack. So I left it on the car. There were a couple months when I didn't use it. It was easy to get around and didn't cause any problems getting into my Prius hatchback. So it was easier to leave it on then to take it off. But..... then it rusted. I sprayed with silicon and WD40 and got it back into easy working order, but it took a couple weeks of having to use a mallet to move the sliding rods up and down. Still, for the price and if you perhaps cover it with tied down heavy duty garbage bag to protect from the rain, it works great. On a positive note, the construction does allow for ease in adjusting the wheel holders to accommodate all different size bikes and they never rusted and remain easy to adjust. If you park in a garage.... I would recommend. If not, WD40 and silicon protect right out of the box and as a normal maintenance. 434037


Comments

I still keep it on the car, but no longer garaged but parked under an opensided carport. I back in so that the rack stays dry. Still some rust developing but I keep on top of it with a light brushing and wd40 or silicon. If you dont do this, it makes it very difficult to move the locking bars up and down. But it has been a year out in the elements and I think it is holding up very nicely. The locking pins provide quick and easy capability to fold down the bars and racks so there is never a problem accessing items in the hatchback. I recommend this product.

I am very pleased with the bike rack. I like it's simple design and it is not so heavy to make it difficult to take on and off the car. It was simple to assemble, however I did have 3 washers I could not determine where to use. The bike rides well on the rack with minimal shaking. Taking the bike on and off is much easier than the roof rack that I have used for years. Good rack and especially for the price. 565490

Excellent product, excellent customer service, fast delivery. I ordered this bike rack for my Jeep with an oversized spare tire. After discussing it and getting help from someone on the phone reference and extension for the rack to go past the tire I got the product number and ordered at 5pm. To my very big surprise I found out via e-mail that the product had been shipped at 8pm three hours later the same day. Amazing! I think it was 3-4 days later the bike rack arrived. I put it together in about 20 minutes with the easy directions included. Good to go!! Very pleased! 566642

We bought the Swagman bike rack to replace a bike rack that also attached to a trailer hitch. The old rack was still in good shape but we aren't in as good shape as we once were! This rack allows me to load the bike by myself because I only have to lift one wheel at a time to a much lower height than with the traditional bike rack. This rack is very well made. The bar that holds the bike in place works very well. It saves on time and work because no bungee cords or straps are needed to secure the bike. Would highly recommend this product. 430525

I couldn't be happier with the price, service and quality of the bike rack I purchased through etrailer.com.

Set up and used the new bike rack for a trip shortly after receiving it. I liked how it balances two bikes with minimal movement which was a big improvement over my previous rack. I also liked how well it supported the bikes in transit with two contact points for each bike. I'll be taking it on a much longer trip next month and will be in a better position to comment after I have more experience. 564153

This is an excellent product at this price point. I wanted a bike rack that could carry two bikes, that I could put in the hitch myself and didn’t cost an arm and a leg. This carrier is perfect. It was easy to put together, it is easy to adjust to your bike and holds the bike(s) securely. I am very pleased with the quality. The carrier is solid; while I can get the carrier into the hitch, it is still heavy. Good motivation to stay strong! I hesitated over the fact that you have to have a separate means to lock your bike and/or the carrier. Because I use the carrier infrequently, this has not been an issue, I just use the lock I already had to secure the bike to the carrier. A thief would have to lift the carrier out of the hitch with the bikes attached. Since the carrier is very solid, this would be an interesting sight - someone carrying the carrier with the bikes attached. 528613

NO MORE hanging bikes that get damaged and wiggle all around This bike rack is perfect. There is a cheaper model but you cannot lock the rack to the hitch with a wrench. I keep a ratchet type wrench in the trunk. this locking device keeps rattles to nothing at all and makes it very difficult to steal There is a more expensive model but all you seem to get for the money is rubber tie down straps. They will eventually rot away. There are better fasteners for the wheels and very inexpensive. I have this same model at our home up north and I wish I had bought one years ago. Other company tray type racks can cost a fortune and do no better job than this. I also use a strap to trunk lid and there is no wiggle or jiggle and bikes do not get scratched at all.. So easy to place bike on rack, slide down clamp to lock bike and drive away safely Do not for sliding hook down too hard or it could be a little difficult to release, but not impossible Very happy with this bike carrier Just get one! 452928

After much research I chose etrailer.com to purchase my trailer hitch and bike carrier. I chose etrailer based on price, the associated product information (including awesome installation videos) and free delivery. The delivery was very prompt and the packaging was just right. Total installation time was about 2 hours but would have been much less if removing the muffler hanger had been easier (more about that later). The hitch fit perfectly with all of the holes lining up exactly right. The hitch is very heavy-duty (over 120 pounds) so it does require two people to lift it into place. The bike rack (Swagman XC 2 Part S64650) is exactly what I needed. Assembly on that was simple and it works perfectly with the Curt hitch. Regarding the muffler hanger. It is a rubberized hanger that is impossible to lift off the bracket...until you apply some WD40. Then it merely slides off. That little gem of information would be a welcome addition to the installation video. If there were more stars to give I would gladly award them to etrailer.com and the products I purchased. I wouldn't consider anyone else. 407147


Comments

We are very pleased with the products. Last February, we attached the bike rack to the hitch, added a bike and drove from Colorado to Florida and back with no issues. It was solid and secure. I drilled a hole through the clamp riser so that after attaching the bike and securing with the clamp, I could run a bike lock through that hole to keep anyone from moving the clamp and taking the bike. Just an extra measure of security since the bike remained attached to the bike rack overnight and out of sight while we were traveling. I also added some reflective tape to the bike rack just to provide extra visibility. Next year we will be taking two bikes to Florida. Ill let you know how we do. Thanks for following up.

I have to say this was an easy product to setup / install. It only took about 20 minutes and setup exactly how the website review showed in the video, this was my first hitch / bike rack install and was very easy to install. The bike rack is great quality and seems very sturdy. The entire process from customer service to the install was painless. I recommended this product if you are in the market for a bike rack. 548339

We just purchased the Swagman XCS64650 bike rack. I anticipate we will love it. I was able to assemble it without any problems. The instructions and video were helpful. However, I must say it would be beneficial if the pictures showing where the bolts and associated washers go were bigger. I was able to sort it out and I am not that mechanically gifted. 66402


Comments

I anticipated we would really like the bike rack we purchased. After a year, we really, really like it. We relocated from Maryland to Washington state and the bikes rode in the rack without any problems. We are in our 70s and like the fact it is very easy to mount the bikes in the rack. I would highly recommend this rack to anyone.

I returned my swagman hanging rack in exchange for this great, affordable platform model. It couldn't be easier to install and load bikes. I added additional reflector tape that I found at Home Depot. I also bought the recommended anti-rattle hitch lock. The Bolt sticks far out, however, and could be hack sawed off, if someone really wanted it. But it does the job nicely. Also, if someone really wanted, they can remove the entire rack minus the bar that feeds into the hitch by unscrewing 2 allen bolts and pulling a pin. I don't quite understand that part of this, otherwise excellent design. I'm actually not that paranoid or worried about it. Basically, if someone really needs this off your car, it's theirs. Pretty stoked I read all the reviews and settled on this solid rack. It stores pretty easily. Not overly cumbersome. 181183

Purchased 3 items from etrailer (Swagman-S64650, Hitch -24902, Anit-Rattle Lock -S64029)- Product review below etrailer review (both get similar star rating) Decided to use etrailer based in their support videos and upfront information. For example: on some products I reviewed they provided (in the title info ) Class I or II. For other retailers you had to dig deep into description. Being a novice at the ratings it not only educated but prevented incorrect part ordering. I will not hesitate to use etrailer based on the above and AFTER the purchase support Now to the bike rack. Easy to follow instructions. Easy to assemble. Loading/unloading bikes is simple. Compact when folded- One item note: Universal Foot-UF (connects rack to hitch) does not fold. For UF dis-assembly need to remove thread lock bolts. 547048

Easy to use. Exactly as I thought it would work. The only thing that I would say is that I find the instructions on how to put it together out of the box a little lacking. So it takes a little guess work, but not difficult to do. Very solid and stable product. Easy to use. Great price. 145350

I LOVE both the Draw-Tite Hitch and the Swagman Hitch Bike Rack. I have used them numerous times over the past year and they performed flawlessly.I have highly recommended both of these products, and etrailer.com, to my friends and family.You can be sure that when I am in the market for these types of products again I will most assuredly buy them from etrailer.com.

Best Bike Rack Hitch Carrier for less than $150.00....EVER! Unfortunately, our area was flooded by Hurricane Harvey not long after I ordered this bike carrier. So it sat in storage until 2 weeks ago. I was finally able to put it together and use it immediately. Simple to put together and even simpler to load bikes on to. took me 15 minutes to put together. Can load 2 bikes onto the rack in less than 30 seconds. That is NOT an exaggeration either. I was worried that once I got the bikes loaded that they'd rock and shake during travel but that was not the case. Loaded 2 bikes onboard and they stayed secure during the whole trip to our start point. Again, the carrier was quiet as a church mouse. No rattling what so ever! No noise at all!! And the cushions on the clamps that hold the bike in place are gentle enough not to put any marks or scratches on my bike frame, which was definitely another concern! All in all, this was one of the best purchases I've made in the last 18 months. If you're considering this carrier and still not sure, take my word and this review, 'Buy it. You will NOT be sorry!' 546249

Rack was easy to assemble and holds the bikes well. even the comfort bike fits. Only problem I had was that the 2 inch adapter was installed and the bolt holding it was really tight. If you don't have quality allen heads it could be hard to remove. This could have been an isolated instance. 87648

Rack has worked great over the past year. I have hauled bikes around the states without any problems. I like that I can put a lock on the release lever for the arm that goes up and down.

I bought this rack to carry one mountain bike and one hybrid path bike on my Sienna van or my 4Runner. I wanted something easier than my hanging bike rack. I received the rack in good condition with slight damage to the inner box but the shipping box was in perfect condition. Very quick delivery. The rack is mostly put together when you receive it. I just installed the bicycle wheel rings and the receiver bar. Each of the hex bolts on the receiver bar have lock washers for very secure attachment, though you need to have a hex wrench to tighten. The wheel rings move smoothly on the support bars and tighten with knobs that have secure nylon locknuts inside to prevent loosening. By the way, the two Phillips head screws go into the ends of the support bars as stoppers ( wasn't explained in the brief instructions). The fit and finish of the rack was better than expected and easy to use. I did have to spend some time, with a helper, to figure out how to position the bikes for the best placement on the rack. It was a bit of a puzzle, but I figured it out. Make sure you put the tallest bike next to the hatch with the derailure inside. This protects the back windshield from the handle bar and moves the pedal further from the door. Now, removing the bikes and replacing them back on the rack should be very quick and easy. To easily remove the holddown clamps, simply push down the top while pressing on the latch. The rubber on the holddown clamps tend to rub off on the bicycle; so, I treated it with 303 protectant and have a layer between it and the bicycle. Also, on the holddown clamps there are holes to allow you to lock each of the latches, however I typically use a cable and lock. 223265

I have a very expensive, very heavy Thule hitch rack. The Swagman beats it, hands down. Im contemplating selling my Thule and buying another Swagman for my other vehicle. The only issue encountered is properly staggering the hold-downs and keeping handle bars from hitting the glass on my van and SUV. Very easy to use and keeps the bicycles from hitting each other.

This is my first time ordering from etrailer.com, but I must say their customer service was excellent. They called me and left a message regarding my shipment, that was a good surprise. The product was tracked the whole way and showed up sooner than expected. As far as the swagman xc2 bike rack, I have assembled it, and found that very easy, diagrams could be a little larger though. I put it on my 2016 Toyota Tacoma, and everything was adjusted to my, and my wife's bike fine. The parts look well made, and we plan on going on a bike trip this weekend. The only concern I have is, that the hitch pin for my Tacoma is a little larger than the hole in the bike rack. I had to get a smaller pin. The rack is secure, but the pin is a little smaller than the hitch holes, which makes the rack move inside the hitch more than I would like. Hope this helps someone. 254689

For now I'm giving this 4 stars, though it could well deserve a 5. Ordering, delivery of the bike rack was smooth and easy. It took me 45 minutes to assemble and install the rack by myself (I am only semi-handy, good at following directions and using basic tools, but not capable of major modifications on my own). I found the instructions clear and the process straight forward. All the parts fit smoothly and didn't require extra greasing or adjusting. The metal is treated and high quality, so with reasonable care (i.e., not leaving out in the rain continuously), it seems it will last a long time. I love the clean, simple, minimalistic design. No need for additional bungees or straps to keep bike parts from wandering or spinning. The rack seems adaptable to a variety of bike sizes and combinations with minimal effort, though it likely will take a little testing to find the best positions for your particular bike combos. It is relatively easy to get on and off, and very easy to move the center post for access to the back hatch. Further bonus - it works fine with my canoe strapped to the roof. Possible cons (too soon to know for sure): Unfortunately, it's been raining nonstop, so I have only briefly road tested the rack. It does bounce and move around in the receiver a bit more than I'd like, so I may have an additional set screw hole drilled into my receiver to help stabilize it, but I'm going to wait and see. The bike travels very smoothly on the highway in the test runs I've made and doesn't affect the handling of the car (Subaru Forester). I do live down a gravel road with a gravel driveway, and the bike wobbles noticeably at slow speeds and on the gravel road. Also, security. I'm not usually in a situation where I need to worry about securing my bike or rack with a lock, but I can see that this could be a concern. For short trips, you can easily fold up the rack and place it inside the vehicle. I think you could lock the bike to the rack. But if you need to leave the rack with or without bikes attached outside the vehicle, then yes it could be a security issue, as the pin isn't made for locking. 257686

Just got our bike rack installed on our rv. Very simple to install. I didn't need the instructions, I just looked at the picture on the box. It is a very sturdy rack...hardly shakes or vibrates. That was an important feature. I've purchased several products from etrailer and have never been disappointed. I shop around, but always end up buying from etrailer. I highly recommend etrailer. 217243

This is our second rack. We have another one on our other Toyota Corolla. When we got a newer model Corolla I ordered both hitch and rack from etrailer. I love the way this allows the bikes to be behind the airstream of the car, not as much drag, to reduce gas mileage. It actually only drops the gas mileage by one mile/per gallon. Much better than any other rack &/or accessory we've used. We use a cable and key lock to security secure it to the car. then we can use a regular bike lock to lock the bikes to it. The only drawback is there is a little trouble getting into the truck with our mountain bike, straight, handlebars. Only a slight inconvenience to have to adjust the bar/bike a little to get the truck open. Love it. 137428


Comments

No complains about the Bike [rack] at all..But I have to tell you a story to keep this from happening to you. I had the trunk lid open and the inside bike wasnt secured, just leaning. Suddenly the bake fell into the trunk. The handlebar just touched the very bottom of the back windshield, not even a half inch anlong the edge, but it broke the whole window out. My fault for not watching andor not taking precautions to keep the bike secure.

This product is very sturdy and surprisingly well made and easy to assemble. The upper arms ratchet downwards to secure the bikes firmly without damaging their finish. The bikes don't shake or swing when going down the road. Its exactly what i was looking for while being 1/3rd the cost of some brand name units. While i think this has an excellent value for the price, if i had to do it over i would pay the $50 extra to get the next model (XTC-2) because that model has wheel ties a well as the upper arm for holding the bike in place. I don't expect these arms to come loose any time soon but it cannot hurt to have additional straps as a backup. 111925


Comments

I have used this product probably 2-3 times a month since purchasing it and its not showing any sign of wear yet. in Retrospect, my initial thought that i would need to tie the wheels down seems overly cautious as i have not had any mishaps or near mishaps.

The carrier arrived in great shape, well packaged. Assembly took about 15 minutes & instructions were simple & easy to follow. the carrier is well thought out & will handle a wide variety of bike styles. My wife & I have Schwinn cruisers & the clampdowns handle her step-thru ladies bike very well. The carrier will handle racer-style & mountain bikes, as well. Very quick to mount carrier on my truck & it is very easy to load & unload the bikes at your destination. Bikes are held rock-solid, with no damage to their finish or to your vehicle. Great product at a very, reasonable price! 560107

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • What are the Differences Between Swagman XTC-2 S64670 and Swagman XC-2 S64650
  • The Swagman XTC-2, part # S64670, offers a few things that have been improved over the Swagman XC-2, part # S64650. The most noticeable is the two-tone color scheme. Beyond the aesthetics, the XTC-2 offers re-designed and improved wheel cradles that are stronger and position the bikes higher up to provide more ground clearance. The wheels hoops on the XTC-2 also have stronger, more durable clamps for adjusting the wheel hoops. Finally, the wheel straps are a better, heavier design. They...

  • Recommendation of Bike Rack for Beach Cruisers with Fenders and 3 inch Wide Tires
  • The Thule T2 Quick-Load 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack, item # TH9044, will accept up to 5 inch wide tires but, unless you have over 1 inch of clearance between the fender and the front tire on your cruiser with a fender, you will not be able to secure the bike safely. Another option for both of your cruisers would be the 2 Bike Carrier for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Trailer Hitches - Wheel Mount, item # S64650, as long as the weight of each bike is not over 35 pounds.

  • Advantages of Swagman XTC-2 Bike Rack Part # S64670 Versus the XC Rack Part # S64650
  • If I had to choose between the two, I would choose the XTC-2, part # S64670. Not only do the rubber straps you refer to further secure the bikes to the rack, but the wheel hoops themselves are much stronger. The rack includes a threaded hitch pin, but I would recommend the optional locking hitch pin/cable lock combo part # S64031.

  • Comparing the Swagman XC and XTC-2 Platform Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks on a 2004 Pontiac Vibe
  • There are several differences between the Swagman XC, # S64650, and the Swagman XTC, # S64670. First, the XC uses a different type of wheel loop than the XTC. While it is a solid and sturdy wheel loop, the ones used on the XTC are not only a different design, but a little more well constructed. Both racks use the same ratcheting hook assembly to secure the bikes at the frame. The ratcheting system is a secure and convenient method of securing the bikes. The XTC also includes a strap...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, and Curt Trailer Hitches for a 2010 Mazda 3
  • You have done your research. As you have seen, all of the hitches for the 2010 Mazda 3 are Class I trailer hitches. The Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch models do have the safety notch in them that prevent the insertion of a Class II accessory. This is so you will not accidentally overload the hitch. The Curt hitch does not have this feature. This notch and the capacity are what makes a Class I hitch a Class I. As you have said neither the Draw-Tite nor Hidden Hitch models require the use...

Any of the racks you are interested in should have no issues on the freeway. Stability: platform bike racks are going to move around. This is because of their design. You have long platforms extending out from the center of the hitch with weight on them. There is going to be some...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2002 Toyota Corolla for Use with a Swagman XC Platform Bike Rack

Curt trailer hitch # C11181 is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver so the two are compatible. This hitch does require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for use with a bike rack for Curts warranty.

  • Will a Hitch Mount Hanging Bike Rack Damage the Cables on a Trek Hybrid Bicycle
  • Using a hanging rack like the Standard 4 Bike Rack, # S64400, could put pressure on the cable. And while in transit the bike will move at least a little which will apply some friction to the cable. So while it is highly unlikely it will damage the cable, it is possible, but i have not heard of any problems like this occurring. This rack does have channels in the cradles to help protect the cables on bikes. You may want to consider a platform rack that secures the bike at the wheels...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Specialized Low Entry
  • The Specialized Low Entry you are planning on buying has an incredibly low cross tube on it. You can use the Swagman XC bike rack # S64650 with your bike but you will also need the adapter bar part # 64005 to provide a higher attachment point for the arms of the XC. The arms of the XC can go pretty low, but since the cross tube of the bike rack is so short it's hard to say for certain if the arm would line up properly with the bikes frame. The arms of the rack can go down to 15 inches.

  • Spare tire clearance for 2012 Jeep Wrangler with rear mounted spare tire.
  • The best way to determine if a bike rack will clear the spare on a Jeep Wrangler is to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on the trailer hitch to the back edge of the spare tire (see photo). We list this dimension on all of our bike rack product pages. We recommend measuring because this dimension can be different depending on the brand of the trailer hitch and the width of the spare tire. For example, we installed a Curt Class III trailer hitch, # 13432, and this dimension...

  • Long Wheelbase Bike Rack Recommendation for 62 inch Wheelbase Bicycle

Due to your bike length and wheel size you would want to go with a recumbent bike rack like the Hollywood Racks part # HR1000R. This can fit bikes up to 74 inch wheelbases.

If you check out the picture I attached of this hitch installed you'll see that the opening appears to be recessed behind the bumper a couple inches. Now the Swagman XC part # S64650 has a curve in the shank pretty close to where the rack slides into the hitch so it would be too close to call, but I have a better option all-around...

This is a great bike rack that has a similar platform-design to the Swagman # S64650 referenced in your question but with a weight capacity of 45 pounds per bike. This particular rack has a few really nice features, such as its ability to tilt down with the bikes still loaded for easy rear cargo access and the included, built-in...
