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

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

This bike rack is just plain awesome. We bought it for our 2013 Ford Fusion and couldn't be any happier. It carries 2 bikes easily, and loading/unloading of the bikes is a snap. Pros: The rack comes with a bolt to secure the rack to the hitch receiver. It is not necessary to actually bolt the rack (a standard pin is sufficient), but when you take the time to bolt it, the rack is rock solid to the car. No swaying, no rattling, no bouncing, it quite literally becomes one with the car. Once the bike is in the rack, and is secured with the upper bar, there is no question that the bike is safe. We own some pretty expensive road bikes, and never once have we worried about them coming loose or getting damaged. Additionally, the bikes never touch each other OR the car. Cons: On the 2013 Ford Fusion, you can't open the trunk of the car if there is a bike in the rack closest to the car. It is possible to release a pin and swing the bike rack down a bit in order to open the trunk, but I find that much more difficult than just removing the bike... a task that takes just seconds. There is also no way to lock the bikes to the rack in order to prevent theft. When faced with a situation that calls for a lock, we usually just add a bike lock to the bikes themselves, and make sure that it loops around the rack in some way. It wouldn't stop a thief, but it would slow them down. Overall, I'm thrilled with this bike rack. For the money, and for the peace of mind, you can't go wrong. 321539

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.

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.

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 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

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.

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 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

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

Overall I really like it and am very happy with it. Loading and unloading is much smoother than other racks I've used in the past. The instructions could have been a bit better. It never told me to install washers, only showed a picture, so I had to redo the fasteners, but not that big of deal. Overall it was a pretty straight-forward install. I wish the extension part that attaches to the hitch was normal size. Because of it's smaller diameter, I'm relying on the spacers to fill the void, so it's not as snug as I would like, but again, not that big of deal, just a tad wobbly. The pin that goes through the hitch to hold it in place, um, I'm not sure if I like the fact that it's threaded. Only because if it's not lined up perfectly, it's difficult to thread by hand. Also, the pins that hold the folding bars in place, they sometimes get stuck, I'm talking about the little spring loaded bearing that is supposed to go through the holes, it's not as easy to do as I would like, but meh, another small detail. I like the ratchet system that holds down the bikes, pretty nifty, I just hope they last a long time. I can see them wearing out sooner than I would want them to. I've had three or 4 bike racks, and so far this is my favorite one. They hold our two beach cruisers perfectly. I'm excited to acquire more attachments that go with the hitch. Thanks again, cheers!!. 479750

This does an ok job carrying mountain bikes. Very easy to mount/dismount the bikes, and the unit holds them securely. Cons: 1. If you have two identical bikes (frame size and style), it can be challenging to figure out how to place them. Even though the two hooks are different lengths, they aren't different enough, so the top hook ends up hitting the bottom one's mount before it snugs onto the bike. Only way to work around this is to have the bikes offset in a less than ideal arrangement, where the hook for one of the bikes is on a sloped part of the top tube instead of a flat area. 2. The hitch pins Swagman uses to hold the upright and folding tray holders in place are made out of cheap steel that rusts quickly. The little spring loaded balls have already corroded to the point that they no longer protrude, so the pins tend to fall out of their holes from road vibration. 409408

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

I needed a rack to hold two bikes on a 2005 Honda CRV. This rack is perfect! Since one bike has the dropped crossbar, I needed a rack that would carry both styles, this rack does that. Also, the spare tire and hard cover make clearances an issue. Using the etrailer questions page, I was able to determine the dimensions and clearances of the bike rack to make certain is was correct for my application. I placed the order, had an immediate confirmation and the rack was shipped the next day. It arrived as scheduled in perfect shape. The directions are a little vague and do not match the hardware, but it is not an issue. This is very simple to assemble. I like the fact that the weight of the bikes is supported in the hoops, then the clamps secure the frames, a very secure system. The hoop locations are adjustable, it took me a couple of tries to find the ideal configuration for holding our bikes. Also, the rack can be folded down (with the bikes removed) to allow the rear door to opened without removing the rack from the car. Etrailer is great to deal with and I got a great price with free shipping. 47052


Comments
Would the ratcheting arm work on a traditional, old-fashioned girls bike? It looks like the angle and the distance it would have to go down would not make it very stable.
-- comment by: Jenny H - 05/08/2014

Depending on the bike frame, it may not go down far enough. The solution is a bike adapter bar that would give the hook a different tube to grab on to. Check out part # S64005.

After setting up my new bike rack, I found that the "universal tow hitch adapter" that's used for bigger tow hitches such as my Toyota Tacoma didn't seem to compliment entirely. Attached pictures, you will see that the locking bolt and along with the cotter pin to secure the locking bolt onto the tow hitch doesn't quite reach through all the way across. Therefore, I wasn't able to insert the cotter pin through the locking bolt and couldn't safely secure my bike rack to the tow hitch of my Tacoma. I know the Toyota Tacoma is a very popular vehicle and I recommend all future orders be replaced with a much longer locking bolt (at least 1/2 inch longer) to accommodate truck owners like me. On the contrary, the bike rack does manage to fit onto my Mazda5 Minivan when utilizing the smaller tow hitch (without the universal tow hitch adapter for Class 3 Receiver). The bike rack is very versatile when loading bikes of various sizes and folds up to stow away very conveniently. Overall, great product!! 513894


Comments
The problem youre experiencing is occurring because the factory hitch on the Tacoma has an extra piece of reinforcement wrapped around the mouth of the receiver tube. This extra piece of metal adds about a 1/4 inch of width to the receiver, which is why the pin wont go in far enough for the retaining clip to fasten. Swagman doesnt offer a longer standard hitch pin, but they do offer a locking model that would be long enough, part # S64029

I received this rack as promised and immediately took it on a camping trip. The trip was 150 mi one-way so it got plenty of testing time. It performed flawlessly! The construction is very well thought out and well-made. I really like that it requires no additional straps...just the ratcheting hook is all that's necessary to hold the bike very secure. I put two bikes on it as the pics show. Another note...my truck has a dual rear exhaust but I had no issues with exhaust heat on the tires. This is a great product! 25734

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

This product was purchased to transfer a BMX bike to school when dropping off a high school student. Works well. The upper arm easily rachets up/down to secure/release the bike. The latch release may be tricky for those with finger dexterity issues. The hex head screw holding the adapter used to mount on a 2" receiver, was extremely tight and bit dificult to remove. Additionally, (and initally) I was unable to install a hitch lock because it would not penetrate the bike rack. Didn't realize an insert could be removed from the interior of the rack that is inserted into the hitch receiver. At this point, my only concern is the theft prevention of the racheting arms or the mounts the tires sit in. Not sure who would want to steal them but they are very easy to remove. With that said the, the rack is well worth the price of $160. 149033

I had to trade in my car and was unable to get my Yakima rack out of the receiver. It went with the car but It was OK as I had developed arthritis in my wrists and hands and after careful reading, reviews, etc. , I decided I would opt for the Swagman XC 2 for my Prius C. I had no problem putting it together- it was a breeze. I promptly put my Cannondale on-board- no problem. I headed down back roads to my favorite trail at deliberate speeds of 50-55 mph. Some bounce but not much. This reasonably priced product is perfect for my needs. I did add a bungy around the seat post for my own peace of mind. I may see if I can loosen up one of the top grips as it is super tight and hard for me to squeeze- but that may just be me. Lifting the bike onto the the Swagman was a breeze. Haven't tried it with two bikes yet but I don't anticipate any problem. Thank you etrailer for your excellent service, 2nd time around and for all the available installation tips and product reviews. 398956

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.

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

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 bought this rack and a hitch from Etrailer to carry bikes on the back of a 2015 Mazda 3 hatchback. The Etrailer website was GREAT in helping to pick the products. The rack arrived on time as promised. I opted for the XC2 over the slightly more expensive XTC2 because I didn't like the XTC2's plastic straps (in my limited experience, similar plastic straps end up stiffening and breaking over time). As long as the 'hooks' are pushed firmly down on the bikes, the bikes are held very steady. I like that the 'hooks' are held down by a ratchet mechanism rather than the tightening knobs that many competing racks use. The hatch door can just barely be opened when the tower and wheel racks are in the upright (folded up) position. Of course, with bikes on the rack, the hatch cannot be opened. It rides very well on smooth roads. It seems to wobble quite a bit when I jiggle it by hand, which makes me wonder how it would do on rough roads, but the construction seems strong so I won't worry about it. I think any hitch mount will wobble just as much. So far, I've made one 100 mile trip and I'm completely pleased. One more note: the tire racks have hand knobs to tighten the racks into place. At first they were really hard to tighten and didn't seem to hold well. Then I discovered I had put the tire racks on upside down, hence the knobs were on backwards. For some reason it makes a BIG difference! Once on correctly, the knobs worked perfectly. Read the instructions :-) 332048

  • Best Value Bike Rack That Allows For Rear Cargo Access In 2015 Honda CR-V
    The Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style part # S64650 will fit the 2015 Honda CR-V as long as you have a hitch on your vehicle. However, the Swagman XC 2-Bike rack is not a tilt-away rack so you need to remove the bikes from the rack to get into the rear cargo aera of the CR-V. Instead, I recommend Swagman XTC-2 TILT 2-Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches part # S64671 for the 2015 Honda CR-V because it tilts away with or without the bikes loaded for rear cargo access in the...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Use With Womens Natko E-Bike
    We definitely have bike racks that will be great for your Natko E-Bike but the Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack # S64650 only has a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike and according to my research your bike can weigh somewhere between 50 lbs and 80 lbs. I do appreciate the photo as it was helpful in determining the right rack for you, and since your bike has fenders and a step-through frame you will need something that can accommodate that along with the weight. Here are the most economical options...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Subaru WRX with Torklift EcoHitch Installed
    For your 2018 Subaru WRX the TorkLift EcoHitch part # 306-X7257 (2 inch hitch) is a great hitch option as it can hide behind the bumper panel when not needed. 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...

  • What Prevents Shank of Swagman XC Bike Rack from Wobbling in 2 Inch Hitch Receiver
    The Swagman XC # S64650 features a steel adapter sleeve as shown in the provided photo. With the adapter sleeve in place, the rack can be used in a 2 inch hitch. When the Allen bolt is removed and the sleeve is slid off, the rack fits into a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The rack includes a threaded anti-rattle hitch bolt, but a locking version is sold separately as part # S64029. The anti rattle hitch bolt uses a threaded bolt along with a threaded insert that's installed in the bike rack's shank....

  • Lock Recommendation for Swagman XC Bike Rack
    I spoke with my contact at Swagman to see what size padlock shackle you would need for the hooks on the Swagman XC # S64650 and she actually advised against doing so. She said that the holes in the hook assembly are there to hang the assembly for when it gets the powder coat treatment and haven't provided the best security when customers have tried using a padlock. Instead you need to use the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable # S64031 to lock both the bikes and the bike rack. If you already...

  • Comparing the Swagman XC Part # S64650 and the Swagman XTC Part # S64670
    The main difference between the Swagman XC part # S64650 and the Swagman XTC part # S64670 is the wheel hoops. The wheel hoops that come with the XC can accommodate a bike with tires up 3.5" wide and spaced 51-1/2" apart on center (wheelbase). The Swagman XTC can accommodate a bike with tires up 2.5" wide and spaced 66" apart on center (wheelbase). Therefore, if you have a bike with a longer wheelbase >66" then you are going to want to use the XTC but if you have a bike with a shorter...

  • Difference Between RV Approved Bike Rack and Bike Rack for Standard Car Truck or SUV
    Both the Swagman Dispatch # S44FR and Escapee # S64693, as well as the Swagman XC 2 bike rack # S64650 are actually RV approved bike racks, so if you need a rack for use behind your motorhome, you can definitely use the # S64650. A vehicle is an RV if the horizontal distance from the rear axle to the hitch pin hole, tow ball, or back of rear bumper (if no hitch receiver or tow ball is present) is 72" or greater. The longer the distance, the higher the leverage. This is directly related...

  • Question About a Product
    The Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style part # S64650 can be used on a woman's bike frame. It is generally easier to use an adapter bar like the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # 64005 because it helps with positioning the bike in the center but can be used without. For the lock use the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable for Swagman Bike Racks part # S64031 this will lock the rack and the bikes to the vehicle.

  • Troubleshooting Wobble with Swagman XC Bike Rack
    For your Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style # S64650, the hitch pin that came with the rack or the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable # S64031 may need to be tightened. I recommend moving the rack up and down slightly as you tighten that threaded bolt. That should secure the shank to your hitch. The two set-screws you mentioned connecting the crossbar to the shank, will only tighten so much and you do want to be careful not to strip the threads. If you have wobble of bikes side...

  • Can I Use Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack S64650 For Adult and Kids Bikes
    Yes, the Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style for 1-1/4" and 2" Trailer Hitches part # S64650 will carry an adult and kids bike at the same time because of it's adjustable hooks and wheel hoops. If your child's bike wheel is 20" in diameter or larger the Swagman XC will work fine while carrying both bikes. If you are trying to carry a child's bike with a small wheel diameter I recommend Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 2 Bike Platform Rack part # HR1000Z which is very similar in design to...

  • Is Removing Swagman XC Bike Rack from 2018 Kia Soul Hitch Difficult
    Installing a Swagman XC bike rack part # S64650 from the hitch of a 2018 Kia Soul like yours is pretty easy. Basically you have to just remove the threaded hitch pin bolt (requires a wrench) and once it's out you simply just slide the rack out from the hitch. I attached a link to a review video that covers this as well. If you are also needing a hitch I'd recommend the Draw Tite part # 24915 as it's very easy to install, priced great, and is mostly hidden so it looks great too. I attached...

  • Trike Rack Adapter Recommendation to Carry Three Wheeled Bicycle
    We have bike racks that were specifically designed for carrying trikes like you have like the Hollywood Racks Trike rack part # HR1000Z-R-TRKADP but the Swagman XC part # S64650 would not work as the wheel cradles would not adjust far enough out to allow the fit.

The Trike Adapter for Hollywood Racks Sport Rider part # HRTRK-ADP-3 would not fit your Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style part # S64650 nor is there an option for this unfortunately.

  • Hitch For 2000 Honda CR-V That Will Allow Swagman XC Bike Rack to Fit
    The Swagman XC bike rack part # S64650 can fit your 2000 Honda CR-V and clear the rear spare if you install the Curt hitch part # 13314. With this setup you'd have about 4 inches of clearance between the rear spare and the nearest wheel hoop so you'd easily be able to fit two bikes in the rack.

  • Comparing Swagman XTC2 and XC Bike Racks
    The big difference between Swagman XC, # S64650, and the Swagman XTC-2, # S64670, is the XTC-2 is capable of handling bikes with up to 66 inch long wheelbases, while the XC can handle bikes with a wheelbase up to 51-1/2 inches. In my opinion, if given the choice between the Swagman XC, # S64650, and the XTC, # S64670, I would go with the XTC every time. The upgraded wheel loops and rubber straps better secure the bikes than the wheel loops alone on the XC. Additionally the XC can...

I recommend the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # SA4412B which is rated for 2 bikes at up to 60 lbs each.

  • Can a Regular Trailer Hitch Pin be Used with the Swagman XC Bike Rack
    The Swagman XC # S64650 can only be used with its thread hitch bolt. The weldnut inside prevents the use of a standard hitch pin. The benefit of the thread bolt is that it poles the shank tight to the inside of the receiver to reduce movement of the rack.If you where to somehow remove the weldnut and use a regular pin then you would also lose that anti-rattle ability. To make installing and removing the bolt easier I recommend using a ratchet with the appropriate socket. For a locking...

  • Why is the Swagman XC Not Okay to Use With an RV
    The reason why some bike racks and cargo carriers are rated for use at the rear of an RV or Trailer and others are not has to do with the fact that the ride is a lot more rough. Since there is more distance from the rear axle to the trailer hitch receiver on an RV or Trailer as opposed to a passenger vehicle, there is a lot more play. Because of this, manufacturers will test and approve which bike racks or cargo carriers can be used at the back of an RV or Trailer. The Swagman XC 2-Bike...

    It is not always permissible to mount one heavy bike of 60-lbs on a rack that can hold two bikes of 35-lbs each, such as the Swagman XC platform rack # S64650. Although this may seem counter-intuitive there is a good reason. With the total bike weight concentrated on fewer components there is risk of overloading them, items like the wheel hoops.
