Video Transcript for Swagman Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Speaker 1: Today in our 2014 Subaru Crosstrek we're doing a test fit of this Swagman G10 Platform Style Two-Bike Rack. That part number is S64682. Now we already have our bike secured down. I'm first going to show you one of the key features of this rack. If we come around here behind both of our bikes we're going to have our black handle. If we lift up slightly on our bike rack and pull up on that spring load lever.We're going to be able to tilt our bike rack away from our vehicle with our bikes fully loaded.

In this position we're going to gain full access into our back hatch area to get anything in or out that we may need. What's great about this is that we can stand in between our bike rack and our vehicle to get out larger items. We're not going to have to worry about removing our bike rack or our bikes just to gain that access. Then to put our bike rack back. We simply lift up until that secures in place.Now how our bike is secured down.

At the front and back tire we're going to have cambuckle straps. Push in on the tab on the side and pull that through. We do the same thing at the front. Here on the center we're going to have a frame hook. This is going to hold our bike down into our wheel cradles.

What's great about these is that they do have locks on them. We're not going to have to worry about an extra bike cable lock. We'll push on the hooks and lift straight up. Then whenever we need to tighten it down we'll simply ratchet it down and push. Then again lock it in place to prevent any theft or tampering.

We'll take our bike off and set it off to the side.With our bike out of the way we'll take a few measurements to see how our bike rack works with our vehicle. Starting off we're going to take an overall measurement. That'll be about 25 inches. Ground clearance we'll be about 18 inches. Our closet point is at our handle back here at about 10 inches away.Now we have a few different positions we can put the rack into. The first we're able to fold our mast down. We're going to pull up on these spring loaded bevel on the side. Our mast folds down. We can lower those hooks. In this position, once again, we're going to gain full access into that back hatch area. We won't have to worry about removing our bike rack once again. Close that up. Our last position we'll come to that same lever where we tilted. We can fold our bike rack up against our vehicle. This is great for close quarter situations like parking. Whether that's in your garage or in a parking lot.We're only adding about 15 and a half inches at this point. The ground clearance of about 12 inches. Our closest point looks to be our cradles sitting at about 2 inches away there. But we're not going to have to worry about that moving since at our hitch we're going to have our anti-rattle bolt. Keep in mind that this hitch does work with both inch and a quarter, and two inch hitches. My anti-rattle bolt is included with a lock. The lock will prevent any theft or tampering. Once again, anti-rattle bolts, is going to keep a lot of shake and play out of the bike rack so nothing moves and you have an overall smooth ride.That's going to be our completed look. The Swagman G10 Platform Style Two-Bike Rack. Part number S64682 on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek. Speaker 2: Here it is on our test course. We'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action which simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Next we're at the alternating speed bumps, which we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pot hole or driving over uneven pavement . Finally we have the full speed bumps. Where we'll see the up and down action which is just like driving out of a parking lot, garage or driveway.

I like the hitch/rack. Its easy to operate and safely holds two bikes. I use it often though i dont leave it on the vehicle. It is much more functional and useful that a hanging bike rack. My one complaint is that, even with the tire slot adjusted all the way to the end of the base, the upper locking arm does not go all the way to the seat stem. There's about a 6 inch space so that if someone really wanted to take the bike they could unfasten the tire straps and move the bike forward. As a result i always have to use the provided cable. 486584


Comments

Great. I stand by my original review. Im still concerned that someone could take the bike if they really wanted it. I use the rack on all the time now. My only additional concern is its showing some signs of rust but this doesnt appear to affect the performance/functionality

William - 03/19/2019

For the arm fitment issue that you expressed last year one thing that you might try is switching the hooks, there is a long and a short one, so that may help with getting the arm in the correct position on your bike. As far as the surface rust, that is somewhat expected after continued exposure to the elements.

This is a very high quality rack. It is very sturdy and folds down easily just by pulling a handle, there are no pins to remove. It comes with both locks on the rack and an anti-rattle hitch lock. It even came with a cable lock as well. The 2" adapter allows us to use it on both our RV and our car. Unlike other racks, the adapter is steel and is screwed on, not some flimsy plastic just stuck on the end. I would definitely recommend this rack. 505712


Comments

Good rack, but developed a sag. After traveling cross-country with the rack on our RV, the rack developed a 10 degree list where the fold-down lock is loose. It still works, but the bikes are leaning backwards and rock back and forth a bit.

Ordered the Swagman G10 to replace my old Swagman hang style bike carrier. I was looking for a carrier that I can use on my SUV with 1 1/4" receiver and my truck with a 2" receiver. I received my G10 last week, item was well packed and arrived without any damage. Assembly was fairly easy, a bit heavy when completely assembled. After a little trial and error, the bikes were positioned correctly. Kind of difficult to mount the bikes with the hooks in place on the fold down ratchet bar (easier with the hooks removed). The rack and bikes have plenty of clearance from the ground for those steep driveways. Really like the locks on the ratchets, along with the cable and hitch lock, looking forward to walking away from vehicle without worrying about my bikes getting stolen. Overall very satisfied with my G10, looking forward to many years of use from it, like my old Swagman. 357058

Swagman G10 Rack is an excellent product. It's easy to install and easy to use with the Curt Hitch that fits perfectly for my KIA Sorento 2016. The bikes are held steadily on the rack, even a Townie Electra with its low&wavy top frame tube. I also want to point out the great service provided by the etrailer staff. I spoke with Gwendolyn, and interacted with George and Sherry, and each of them truly wanted to make sure that I get the best rack for my needs, and at every point of the purchase they provided excellent support. 442897

I have been very satisfied with this rack. Assembly on arrival went well with clear instructions and a complete set of well-fitting parts. Installing the rack on the car is easy; requiring j=only that the 19mm lock bolt be installed and tightened to secure it. I installed it today and timed the operation at just over 2 minutes. Installing bikes is easy too, and with the wheel boots adjusted and the clamps ratcheted down and locked, the load is very secure, stable and theft-proof. I timed the loading of two bikes today too, and it took just under 3 minutes. Installed, loaded and ready to drive away in 5 minutes….that works for me! On our Subaru Outback the tilt feature allows the back hatch to open with two bikes on the rack. The one trick I had to learn was placing bikes to take advantage of the long and short bike frame clamps. Loading one “ladies style” and one standard bike, the standard bike has to go on first but can’t be clamped until the “ladies” bike is loaded and secured with the short arm clamp. Best to have a second person hold the first bike for a minute. All in all, I highly recommend this rack! 524262

Far and away the best value in a heavyweight capacity hitch rack, I bought the Swagman G10 because I have a 50+ lb. e-bike, and I didn't want to pay $700 or more like some other brands. I was not disappointed. The etrailer review was spot on in every way, and the product was exactly as advertised and reviewed. I would give it a 5-star rating except for two small issues. First, it wobbles a bit more when loaded than I would prefer. Not excessively, mind you, and we are talking about almost 100 lbs. of bike hanging off the hitch, but the rack is bolted to the hitch (the rack's hitch pin is also a heavy-duty bolt) and still sways a bit on turns. Secondly, the rack was a tad difficult to assemble. It is an awkward and heavy contraption, and the assembly images in the instructions leave a lot to be desired. Both of those complaints are minor, and for the money, I would recommend this rack to anyone. 406742


Comments

After a year of use, the rack still performs ok, but I am a bit disappointed in a few things. First, this rack does not like being left out in the rain. After only one time being left in the rain, there are some noticeable rust stains. Also, the end cap fell off on the road, so when the rack is flipped up in the stowed position it literally catches rainwater and holds it more rust. Also, the latching mechanism is not operating as smoothly anymore, and the sliding hold-downs key locks got gummed up and I had to spray lubricant in them to get them to work. I sprayed silicone to keep water out and they work OK now although still a little gummy. Finally, when my bikes are loaded, the rack noticeably sags. I am willing to cut the rack a bit of slack here, since I load the rack with two e-bikes and its at or above the advertised limit, but the sagging has gotten worse over the past year. Overall, I would still recommend the rack for light or occasional use, but I am going to be looking for another rack with much better durability, strength, and resistance to the elements.

Thanks for the follow up. This bike rack is rated for up to 45 pounds per bike, so if your e-bikes weigh more than that you are over the weight limit. You may be able to reduce the weight on the e-bikes depending by removing the battery (if possible). If not I have included a listing of our e-bike compatible bike racks for your reference.

I really like this product. First time using a platform rack and I can adapt it to both my Subaru Impreza and Ford truck. I did have to order a special hitch mount for the Impreza and get it installed first. I can load bikes without lifing overhead (shoulder injuries make it tougher). It is very stable and the fact that you can fold it in different directions and store it compactly is great. Well-designed product. The service from etrailer was outstanding so I could easily figure out what would work for my situation. 248906

We've only really used the trailer for one trip we took to Vermont last year. The trailer was hitched to my SUV for the entire one-week trip (about a 6 hour drive from home). We had rain on a couple of days, and I was disappointed to see the trailer already developing rust in a few spots by the time we got home. That surprised me, since it was undamaged and seems so well made. After all, my car doesn't rust after a single rain shower, so I'm not sure if it's related to the materials or the workmanship. Just be aware that you might experience the same eventuality. 694986

I really like the Swagman G10 Hitch Bike Rack. I have an e-bike that weighs about 50 pounds so I needed a rack that could handle the additional weight. It's also easy to install and can be easily set up for any bike. 691293

The bike carrier I ordered came 2 days after i ordered it with free shipping! I was suprised at how fast it arrived. I put it together in about 20 minutes. The quality seems legit. I chose this one over a comparable Thule due to the price difference & I don't think I could have made a better decision. My friend has the Thule I was interested in & honestly this one so far in my opinion is a better quality. 637875

Love this rack. It folds up very small and tilts away from my SUV so I can open the back hatch. My bikes are secure and held in place not bouncing around. I like that each hold down arm has a lock on it. Great product. I highly recommend. 560604

I really like the bike carrier. It is easy to put the bikes on and holds them secure. I also like that it can tip back to get things out of the back of our SUV. We hauled our bikes to Fort Myers Beach and back Michigan. Great product! 560552

I installed this on a 2013 GMC Acadia. It is very well built. It is very solid, super easy to use, and it does not rattle or make any noise at all. It allows access to the rear hatch without any trouble, and folds up nice if you are not carrying a bike. It looks like it would fit about any kind of bike. I would highly recommend this item. 555915

The item was perfectly packaged by the company, Swagman. It arrived much sooner that the seller estimated - always a nice bonus. I love this product, even more now that locks are on the hooks. My old one got bashed by a jerk in a parking lot, so I had to replace. VERY pleased all round. 546919

The order arrived on time, exactly as promised by etrailer. The link to check delivery updates worked fine & etrailer staff kept me fully informed. The Bike Carrier was well packed, each component was well secured to prevent damage. The assembly instruction are very clear and in less than 30 minutes, the Bike Carrier was ready for use. This carrier is a quality item, sturdy built, easy to use and has many options that I have not seen on other carriers that makes it safe and convenient. I'd give this product a 5-Stars and the staff at etrailer gets 5-Star for excellent customer care. Many companies have Customer Service department but etrailer truly care for its customers. If I ever need a component etrailer has, they are my priority vendor. Thanks etrailer for everything. 529356

Product was exactly as described and delivery was excellent! Assembly was very simple and the carrier is already on the vehicle.

First off; let me say etrailer's customer service was excellent! The Swagman G10 is my first bike rack (hitch) in my career of Life. So far looks like a solid product. I'm used to hearing the names Thule, Yakima, etc. but I was told Swagman is quality product by etrailer and I believe it! The assembly was fairly simple and straight forward. My only gripe is that the collars on the shank are still a little small so it moves around quite a bit when I'm driving in my Jeep (2"). Don't know how to solve that in a fashionable way where I'm not wrapping the collar with a bunch of electrical or duct tape. Overall I like it; it's my first rack so nothing to compare to.

I procrastinated for a long time on my decision. Researching bike carriers of all models and brands from expensive to cheap. Price was also a huge factor. I finally chose the G10. It has all the bells and whistles of the more expensive brands without costing 2-3 times as much. It carries my Kona '29er with ease. If you're in the market for a bike carrier at a reasonable price don't hesitate to buy it from these guys. Always receiving updates and was dispatched immediately and landed on my doorstep only a couple of days after with free delivery. 486532

A year on and still going strong. I enter MTB races throughout the Southwest region Colorado, Utah etc. Living in AZ there are trails everywhere so the bike is always on the back. Thousands of miles later I’ve had no issues at all. To say I’m happy with my purchase would be an understatement. I’ve recommended it to my friends and even complete strangers.

Overall, very pleased with this rack. Have had no major issues with it. Carry mine and my wife’s cruiser bikes which are fairly heavy. Very stable, not a lot of movement. Use it on my Acura MDX. With both bikes loaded, it tilts down far enough to to open the hatch which is very nice. Really like the security cable that comes with the rack. For the money, I don’t think you can go wrong. 486259

Very nice bike rack, assembly instructions are lacking but the assembly is fairly simple. etrailer free shipping is nearly as fast as that other online retailer, but etrailer is significantly lower in price. etrailers videos and reviews are the best on the internet 479836

I chose this model because of the tray style and locks on the bike hooks and the hitch cable and lock. I'm very pleased with how easy it is to assemble and to use. Having the support strap really helps stabilize the rack from the upper part of the upright ratcheting arm. The etrailer pricing and service are amazing! Pics and videos are very helpful! 477284

The product is very good. It is a lot heavier in weight for the back of our motorhome than we expected. Sets up easy, bike loading is easy. Locking mechanism was easy to use and one of the main reasons we purchased this product. The package had a hole in it so a few of the parts were scratched. This does not affect function, but was a bit annoying. 447751


Comments

We have used the Swagman bike rack on multiple camping trips now, attached to the back of our mini motorhome. The rack is sturdy, holds the bikes well and is foolproof from theft. We love it. The only comment I would add is to use cut pieces of a pool noodle for extra padding on the bike frame. Roads are bad and although the bike rack is very stable, there is still bouncing and the extra padding prevents damage to the paint on the bike frame.

It's a SNUG FIT! I couldn't find a bike hitch rack better than this Swagman G10. Price is very reasonable. I have a 2014 Hyundai Elantra sedan and this bike rack is just perfect. Clearance is spot on. I have attached some pictures for reference. Probably for some people it might be too close to the rear bumper but for me its perfect because I was looking for a hitch rack that does not stick too far out from the car and is foldable so I dont have to take it off everytime we want to go for bike ride. I also liked that this comes with keys and a high quality cable so you can lock your bikes in place and dont have to worry about the bikes get stolen. I received it very well packed also. Assemby was also a breeze. There where only 6 nuts and bolts you need to install and that is it! The reason why I gaved this 4 stars is because of the weight. It is on the heavier side and when installed on the small sedan with 2 bikes the rear suspension has dropped more than I expected. And also when I was installing this to the car's tow hitch and was tightening the anti-rattle bolt that has a lock included, the bolt snapped very easy and I was not even tightening it all the way. Im just glad this came with another simpler bolt that only has a lock pin. This one felt way more better in terms of quality. I just hope swagman re-designs that bolt in the future and make it more heavy duty. So far this hitch bike rack is working fine with very minimal movements. Thank you etrailer for the great customer service. Yvonne helped me alot and all my questions was answered in a very professional way. I highly recommend etrailer for everyone! 432549

This rack was received very quickly from etrailer. It is better than I expected. It was very easy to assemble. The rack is solid and does a great job holding my wife's bike and mine. We have older, heavy bikes. It was easily adjustable for our bikes. The unit tilts away from your car easily for trunk access. It comes with a locking hitch pin and a cable that integrates into the hitch lock to secure your bikes. That was a pleasant surprise. The bar holds also have integrated locks. It also folds up nicely and does not hang off the back of my Grand Cherokee too far. It weighs a bit over 50 lbs so you do not want to take it off between rides. The hitch pin is quite long. My Jeep has the plug receivers on one side and bumper facia on the other. The lock only goes in one way and does not quite fit properly but it works. Great product overall. 419694

Very nice rack, well made, only problem I've experienced is that the tire boots are hard to keep in place when carrying a very heavy bike. This problem was easily solved by using a ratchet belt to make sure the tire boots stayed in place. Still very pleased with the quality and performance of the unit. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a top quality carrier. 401168

This has been a good product. It went an entire trip across the US with and held my bike fine! The only issue I have of this product is that the tilt mechanism has stopped working as well. It sometimes has a difficult time locking into place. Other than that, great! 396139

This is a well-made and well-desiged rack. It took less than an hour to assemble and install the hitch. Assembly was easy and intuitive. The tilting mechanism and the retention bar design hold on to the bike securely, and allow for quick bike mounting and removal. Again, great design. The bike rack itself folds compactly for storage, or while still mounted on the car. It is robust but very heavy. The bar locking mechanism and the cable locks won't stop a determined thief with a hacksaw or cable cutter. For overnight parking at a motel in an unknown area the bikes will go in the room with me. 376871

I have had several bike racks over the years. This one for me has been the best one I have ever purchases. The ease of putting it on and taking it off is very easy and the way it folds for storage is great. Was also a great purchase from etrailer. 375863

Very well made rack. Very sturdy. Assembly and installation was easy. High quality components. My only reservation is the rack is a bit on the heavy side. I will be installing/removing it from the car when bike trips are not on the schedule so the weight may be an issue. Etrailer website is great. The video showing the rack on the same car I have (Equinox/Terrain) sealed the deal. Customer service A+. I'm a happy camper. ?? 333100

First, I would like to Thank eTrailer for their Great customer Service. They were very quick with info concerning my initial order and guiding me thru my options. My follow up order shipped out the next day. My Swagman G10 was just what I need to fit my Custom built Cannonade with a 66cm seat tube. Being 36" to the Top tube from the ground, not many Bike Rack manufacturers could accommodate this size frame. eTrailer guided me right to the Swagman G10 and solved all my problems. The G10 is built very sturdy and is adjustable enough to fit just about any Bike out there. My Bike is 66cm , my wife's bike is 52cm. Both fit just securely on the G10. 331799

Package arrived in good shape. well packaged,faster than expected.Only took a few minutes to put together.Tried it on the hitch of our 2017 Subaru Forester.The Swagman G10 2 bike rack allows full access to my rear hatch. Plenty of clearance even with both bikes on and the rack in the tilt down position.Only complaint its a little heavy, but that's why its well made. 322643

We have a Toyota Tacoma Pickup- with a cap- and can carry our canoe on top- and both bikes. We love the fact that the bike rack tilts back and we can open the back of the truck, put the tailgate down and retrieve items from the truck without having to move the bikes. We took a long trip with the bikes - the rack was stable all the way. The locks for the hitch and the bikes are a nice feature. Quality workmanship. Very easy to install. 299512

I bought this rack due to its ability to handle 2 bikes easily and securely, while also being compact. I really like how it folds up when you are not carrying your bike and it does not interfere with my hatchback door. It's compact design makes it easier to keep on the back without being a nussiance. The bike rides great and set up was a breeze. 273630

Recently ordered a bike rack and a class one trailer hitch for our 2009 Maxima. Not only did i receive a really great product, that worked as advertised. I also received some great help from the sales team to help me work though all the different styles and options, so i could make a decision. Even though i have done maintenance my whole career 30+ years, and i could have easily figured out the installation of the trailer hitch. The installation video was really beneficial. GREAT JOB ETRAILER :) 270865

Love the bike rack. Easy to use. Locks in the hitch AND individual locks for each bike. Car still fits in the garage with the rack folded up. Solid construction, good welds, no velcro or buckle weaves. Little sway noticed when loaded on the freeway. 267534

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Comparison of Swagman G10 and Swagman Chinook Bike Racks
  • The only main difference between the Swagman G10 # S64682 and the Chinook # S64683 bike racks are the design of the crossbars that the wheel cradles are attached to at the base of the bike rack. The Swagman G10 uses two crossbars in which the wheel cradles are attached directly on top of the bars.The Chinook model use one crossbar that the wheel cradles attach to and sit off the side of the bar.

  • Differences Between the Swagman G10 and Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Racks
  • The primary differences between the Swagman G10, part # S64682 and the Chinook, part # S64683 is the overall size and shape of the rack, as well as the bike dimensions that they hold. The Chinook is an overall smaller rack, and at 25 inches, is a little more manageable for garages and other tight situations, and at 6 inches may risk contact of the wheel trays with your vehicle's rear bumper when folded up. The G10 on the other hand sits 13 inches away from the hitch pin when folded...

The Swagman bike racks like the Chinook # S64683, G10 # S64682, and Semi 2.0 # S64686, are all very good racks that are compatible with both the 1-1/4 inch receiver on your 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback and your 2014 Ram 1500 with 2 inch receiver. Any of them can be used with a hybrid bike and full suspension mountain bike. They all use a hook to secure the...

  • Would a Hitch or Roof Rack be a Better Option for Bike Rack on 2018 Honda Fit?
  • I recommend using a hitch and hitch-mounted bike rack on your 2018 Honda Fit for a couple reasons. The first is convenience; it is going to be much easier for you to mount your bikes on a hitch-mounted rack as opposed to a roof rack where you'd have to lift the bike on top of your car as opposed to simply placing it in the hitch rack. The other reason is cost; a roof rack will be far pricier than a hitch, and you can either pocket those savings or use it to get a premium bike rack. As...

  • Recommendation for a 2-Bike Rack to Fit a 2012 Toyota RAV4

The Malone PilotSolo 2 Bike Platform Rack, # MPG2109, will fit either 1-1/4 or 2 inch trailer receiver hitches and is one of our lightest platform racks that we offer that does not use the center mounting bar. This rack weighs only 30 lbs and includes both a hitch pin lock and locking cable to sure the rack to your vehicle and the bikes to the bike rack. The PilotSolo can carry up to tow...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Ford Escape
  • I can help you get exactly what you need, including a rack that will allow you to open the trunk on your 2016 Ford Escape. The hitch I recommend for you is the Draw-Tite # 75782; this is a Class III, 2" hitch that is going to give you the most options for a high-quality bike rack. This hitch will still allow you to use the hands-free liftgate option on your Escape, though you may have to kick just to the side of the receiver tube. I've added a link showing this hitch being installed on...

  • Additional Anti-Rattle Device Needed for the Swagman G10 # S64682
  • Glad to hear that you are happy with the Swagman G10 # S64682! The G10 does come with a threaded hitch pin that should be reducing the rattle/play between your bike rack and the trailer hitch receiver. If something doesn't seem right the Receiver Insert # P313 may need to be replaced due to damage. We do have some other products that do help to eliminate movement between hitch mount products and the hitch receiver. The most effective product that we have to accomplish this is the...

  • Can Swagan G10 bike Rack Fit into Hollywood Racks Valet Bike Rack Storage
  • The Swagman G10 part # S64682 that you referenced will fit in the Hollywood Racks Valet part # HRRV-1 that you referenced. I would not recommend loading bikes into the rack while in the Valet though as this will most likely cause the rack and valet to tip over. The best solution for bike rack storage that also allows you to load bikes is the wall mount Swagman X Mount part # S80940.

  • Will Kuat Pivot Work With Other Bike Racks
  • The Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender, Item # PV20B, was created specifically for Kuat bike racks but it can also be used with other bike racks like your Swagman G10 2-Bike Platform Rack, Item # S64682. The Kuat Pivot works with most 2 inch trailer hitches so long as you have least 9 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rearmost edge of the bumper. A locking, anti-rattle hitch pin is included. The Pivot also has a maximum capacity up to a 4-bike rack and...

The Kuat Transfer has the closest part of the carrier when folded up of 5 inches and when folded down 7-1/2 inches. I've attached a video of each rack on the same vehicle so you can compare the differences. They will have similar price when you consider locks, the quality and functionality of the racks are very similar, so based on...

  • Can Trunk-Mounted Bike Racks Allow Trunk to Open When on?
  • It is not a dumb question at all but the answer may disappoint you because no trunk-mounted bike rack, including the Saris Bones # SA805BL will allow you to open the trunk of your VW Atlas. What you will need is a trailer hitch, and the Draw-Tite # 76176 is the best option. It will allow you to mount a bike rack which will tilt down with the bikes loaded, and I recommend the Swagman G10 # S64682 because it has a long shank that will give you the best opportunity to open the hatch on...

  • Bike Rack for Electric Bikes on a Fifth Wheel Trailer and 2016 Ram 3500
  • You'll almost always be looking at heavier racks when you are working with electric bikes, purely becuase of the electric bike's weight. Additionally, you'll have heavier racks because you need to pick one that is recommended for use behind a trailer. This is because of the increased force that the rack experiences due to the movement of the trailer, and lighter duty racks can be shaken apart by these forces. Instead, I recommend the Swagman Escapee 2 Bike Rack, part # S64693 and...

As long as your beach cruiser weighs less than this and doesn't have a wheel base larger than 48 inches, this bike rack will work great. This particular bike rack also has spring-loaded levers...

  • Replacement Shank Insert Recommendation for Swagman G2 Hitch Bike Rack
