Sport Rider 2 Hitch Bike Rack for Fat Bikes

The Sport Rider platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry 2 fat bikes on the rear of your vehicle. This versatile rack is easy to use, and it features locking frame hooks and wheel hoops specifically designed for fat tires, so you can quickly load and unload your bikes. The included adapter sleeve enables the rack to fit both 1-1/4" and 2" hitch receivers. An anti-rattle system tightens the rack's shank to your hitch receiver to prevent it from rattling around inside the tube.

Locking, Ratcheting Hooks


The Sport Rider uses locking frame hooks to secure your bikes. These ratcheting, cushioned hooks easily adjust along the vertical mast and lock securely in place. The release buttons allow each hook to slide up the ratcheting arm for bike removal. The hooks function independently, which means you can position them to carry bikes of different heights.

Adjustable Wheel Hoops

Sport Rider 2 Fat Bike Wheel Holders

The wheel hoops are wider than standard cradles and will hold tires up to 5" wide. They accommodate bicycles with wheelbases up to 60" by sliding along the horizontal arms. They secure in place with easy-to-use hand knobs, and the Velcro-like hook-and-loop straps fasten the wheels to the hoops.

Sport Rider 2 Fat Bike Wheel Holders

The rack also comes with 2 sets of standard-size cradles, giving you the option of carrying 2 fat bikes, 2 standard bikes, or 1 of each.

Folding, Tilting Design

HR1000 Tilted

The rack tilts, with or without bikes loaded, for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. Simply remove the pin from the base and tilt the platform down.

HR1000 Folded

The rack also folds up against the back of your vehicle when it's not in use. To raise the rack, just lower the mast flat against the tray and then lift the rack up toward the back of the vehicle.

Easy Installation with Locking Hitch Pin

The rack easily installs in the hitch with the locking hitch pin. Just slide the shank into your receiver, insert the hitch pin, and attach the lock pod. The locking pin works as an anti-wobble device to eliminate sway and rattle in the receiver.

hitch adapter

A removable adapter sleeve is included so the rack can be converted for use with 1-1/4" hitch receivers. The sleeve attaches to the shank with a single screw and can be installed or removed quickly.

Add-On Adapters

 Hollywood Racks Wheel Hoop Adapters

If you want to use the rack to transport a kid's bike with 16" or 18" wheels, wheel hoop adapters (sold separately) are available.

If you want to transport one recumbent delta trike or one recumbent tadpole-style trike with the Sport Rider, you can use the HRTRK-ADP adapter (sold separately).

Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

This rack is being used on a 2017 Kia Forte with a class 1 trailer hitch. For those who aren't familiar with the make/model, it's equivalent to a Honda Civic or a Toyota Corolla. A compact car. I have two trek mountain bikes that weigh around 35-40 pounds each. I emailed asking for recommendations, and this is the rack they recommended. I was initially hesitant as I'd intended on going with the hanging style rack and not a platform rack as I was worried about it being awkward and heavy to handle, but I'm glad I listened to their recommendation as it wasn't nearly as heavy and awkward to deal with as I expected. The weight limit of this bad boy is 50 pounds PER BIKE. Most other bike racks compatible with a Class 1 trailer hitch have a weight limit of around 35 pounds per bike, which I probably could have gotten away with, but etrailer told me that this would give me some head room and I agree with them. Now for my lengthy experience and opinion.

Installing for first time:

You will need a ratchet socket set with a 13, 17 and 19 mm socket along with a Philips screw driver. They include an Allen wrench that you'll also need. There is an installation video on[line] for this bike rack that I HIGHLY recommend watching and if you can, have that video handy on your phone along with the installation instructions, and have that video running AS you install, pausing and playing as needed. That, along with reading each corresponding instruction made installation a LOT easier. Installation into our trailer hitch took my wife and I about an hour.


Putting the bikes on the rack is super easy once you figure out how far apart the tire holders need to be for each bike. It's a simple matter of lifting the bike into the tire holders, sliding a hook attachment onto the middle pole and onto the top tube or whatever spot is convenient on your bike to hold it in place, simply locking the hook with a key, and then wrapping an attached velcro strap around each tire. While the video doesn't show this, for the inner bike, I leave the vertical post folded down, lift the bike into place and very GENTLY lean my bike against the car trunk, THEN lift the vertical post, pull the bike upright and slide hook into place. Outside bike is even easier, just lift bike into place, pull down hook, lock hook, and attach Velcro straps and you're good to go.

It's also to leave the rack on the car when not using. Simply fold down vertical pole, remove pin from lower hole at platform base, swing the platform vertical, and place pin in upper hole locking it in place. I also like removing the hooks and storing them in my tire compartment since for me it's easier to lift bikes into place without the hooks in the way, but you can leave hooks attached if you want. The rack also can be swung down away from the car for easy trunk access, though for me the rack is far enough away from the car that I don't usually need to do this unless I'm putting a lot into the trunk.

Removing/storing/Reinstalling bike rack from car:

For the few times I've had to remove the rack, I like to remove the rack itself from the tongue first and then remove the tongue from the hitch instead of trying to pull the whole thing from the hitch. I find it less awkward this way. I stand the platform itself on end in my apartment storage unit, and then I store the tongue as well as the hooks in my tire compartment so they're out of the way of stuff I need to put in the trunk. However, this thing stays out of the way on the car so well that I will more than likely leave it on as long as I can until the first predictions for the 1st snowstorm come in, as I imagine that road salt/chemicals probably aren't good for this rack. For re-installing onto car, I simply reverse the process, installing the tongue into the hitch first and then lifting into place/bolting the rack itself into the tongue.

Observations when using:

The only negative I can say, and this is being REALLY picky is that the ENTIRE assembly does bounce/twist/sway a LITTLE bit when going over hard bumps, but I suspect that's by design. It's the same idea as buildings designed for earthquake. You don't want the steel frame assembly to break during the quake, so you design the building to bend and say so there is LESS of a chance of that happening. Same concept here I'm guessing. There is less of that sway when only one bike attached, and I've never seen any movement when nothing is attached. There's a certain 13 mm bolt you can tighten to lessen the sway, but you will need to loosen that bolt again when you fold up the rack if you tighten it too much. Also, being really picky, it would have been nice if they'd had rubber click-type straps instead of Velcro straps but not a big deal since the straps aren't load bearing, they're simply an added redundancy to keep the tires in place.

Overall thoughts: I can't say enough good things about this rack. While my initial investment was pretty pricy (between the rack and the hitch, this cost me around $xxx), I can say it's going to pay for itself in the long run. I've had trunk racks in the past, and the convenience of this rack BLOWS trunk racks out of the water. Plus, no more worrying about trunk rack hooks damaging my finish or rusting if I accidently leave the rack out in the rain, and no more tightening and retightening straps every time I put bikes on trunk rack. It's nice to have the convenience of being able to take a mere 2 minutes to plop the bikes on the rack and head on out. This rack was one of the best decisions I've ever made and I have no regrets about getting it, and etrailer was awesome to deal with and I intend to do business with them again when I can.

For the sway, I would make sure that your anti-rattle locking hitch pin is tightened. You can also use a stabilizing strap like item # 18050
Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap for Hitch-Mounted Accessories - 61" x 1" - Qty 1
for extra protection. An accessory you might consider for an easier loading experience is the hitch aligner item # e58ZR
etrailer Hitch Pin Alignment Collar for Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers - 1-1/4" Hitches
which makes it simple to line up the hole on your rack with the hole on your hitch receiver.

Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

Upon initial install everything looks great. Well built and fairly easy to assemble. There was some damage to the shipping box and one of the slides for the wheel bracket was cracked. I have purchased this rack for recumbent bikes. We own 2 bikes a long wheel base rans and a short wheel rans also. Once the initial setting of the wheel holders it should be easy for the future. The old rack I had purchased years back would not fit the long wheel base recumbent. This new rack will do the trick.

The product has been 100 with no issues.

Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

After a lot of research and some expert advice from etrailer I chose the Hollywood Rack Sport Rider Bike Rack for two bikes. We are using it for two e bikes and switch the rack between a 38’ Fleetwood RV which has a 2” receiver and a Fiat 500 Pop with a 1 1/4 “ receiver. We cover the long distances in the RV and switch down to the Fiat to transport bikes to local trails once we are in camp. Perfect for our needs. As always etrailer was most helpful with answering questions and providing advice.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

This bike rack works fine. It solidly supports two bikes with no abrasions or other damage to the bikes. It is very stable on the back of the car and does not sway in corners or over bumbs in the road. It is relatively easy to mount on the car. Bikes go on easy although I do have to lift the forward bike fairly high to clear verticle bar. Occasionally I struggle a little bit releasing and sliding one of the lock downs that go over the frame of the bike. Overall, I have been very happy with it and it is a big improvement over my last bike rack where the bike frame was the only supported area.

This is the best bike rack I have owned. All of my initial comments hold true. During the warm season, I just keep the rack on my car as it is fairly unobtrusive and easy to fold up. I do have to turn off my collision avoidance system when th ebikes are on it and I have to drive in reverse or my brakes lock up. The only minor issue I have is it is a little difficult to adjust the hooks on the rack. You definitely need to work at getting the ratcheted adjusters moving and firmly grasp the hook mechanism that goes up or down with both hands. But, overall I am very happy with the rack.

Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

The Hollywood HR1000R goes together easily and seems very sturdy. It is easily wide enough to hold two recumbent bikes with seats on and is long enough to accommodate two long wheelbase recumbents. The inside bike installs more easily with the vertical post folded, but once in place is held securely. The outer bicycle installs easily. It does project considerably from the rear of the vehicle and is certainly not light. Pictures show a Rans Stratus LE XL and a Rans V-Rex mounted. Etrailer delivered the order very promptly.

Works great. I only regret that I waited so long to replace a dangling bike carrier with the Hollywood HR1000R. It is much easier to load bikes on this rack and they are held more securely. Now that I have experienced the rack, I’d recommend it more strongly than I did at first.

Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

Love the sleek look and design of this rack. It is truly easy to use. However, the rack tends to move tremendously while much so that it makes me question whether my bike is secure on the rack. I wish there was a way to fix this issue. And sometimes I wish I would have went with a more sturdy rack.

The anti-rattle hitch pin reduces movement of the rack in the hitch receiver, but with your bikes on the bike rack with wind whipping around them it probably would benefit from a stabilizing strap like item # 18050
Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap for Hitch-Mounted Accessories - 61" x 1" - Qty 1
to keep the sway in check.

Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

Easy to put together. Easy to use. I would definitely recommend this rack to a friend. It perfectly fits both mine and my wife’s 29er full suspension mountain bikes. Stoked about this purchase. Solid rack!! Also, I can’t say enough about I called to get some info on another rack that they were out of and was recommended this one, that turns out was a better fit for my bikes than the one I was looking at. Also, I needed it to ship out quickly because I was going on vacation. They expedited the process and it shipped that day. Saved my vacation. I can’t say enough about the company or the rack. SOLID

So so glad I purchased this rack. After a year Im even more impressed with it. I use it spring, summer, and fall, and then put it away in winter. I keep it pretty lubricated and it hasnt rusted. Still sturdy. One of my favorite purchases of the year!

Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

I selected the HR1000Z-R based on this review: and have used the rack for over a month on an '09 Jetta wagon. It's been a slight disapointment and an overall 'meh' purchase. Sort of a 'guess it does the job' thing. If there was partial stars I'd give it a 2-1/2.

Assembly took about 30-45 minutes and the directions are fair but you may have to make a guess or two about some of the minor hardware. The hitch lock and the mast locks are keyed alike so you only need to keep track of one key.

We use this rack for both standard diamond frame bikes and for transporting a fully rigged Surly Big Dummy. The latter bike was the primary bike we needed this wider hitch mount system rather than a more prevalent unit.

The carrier scrapes when the car and carrier are loaded but that's more due to the Jetta's ride height and height of the receiver.

The anti-rattle system is a threaded hitch pin that you run through your receiver then tighten down with a wrench. That keeps it from being a quick mount/dismount but doesn't take more than a few minutes. It comes with a lock for the hitch pin as well. The anti-rattle part keeps the hitch side from rattling, but there's still some lash at the upward bend where the main folding mechanism connects. With lighter bikes, it's not as noticeable but you definitely notice it with the cargo bike and another bike mounted.

Both the main rail and mast use pins to secure the parts and allow for changing the form from 'folded away' to 'fully extended for use'. The main folding mechanism has a larger pin with a bale around it to keep it from dislodging during use. There's a smaller pin with a bale that can be removed to drop the assembly to allow access to the rear hatch. There is no assistance for the lift. The likelyhood of a person being able to lift the assembly and remove or add the necessary pin(s) with the rack loaded is pretty slim. Even more so if you have a cargo bike on there. This joint is also where the lash in the system comes from. There's enough room on the receiver side of the joint to allow it to fold easily, but there's not any sort of washer that takes out the slop. I'll probably have to look at a plastic washer or some sort of shim to take the wobble out.

The crossbar has four loops to catch the wheels. The loops have velcro straps to secure the wheels to the hoops. The hoops' location is adjustable with a knob that tightens the mounting point on the crossbar. There's a plastic sleeve inside of the connecting piece to let it slide on the crossbar and keep the hoop assembly tight. The knob needs to be cranked down hard for the rear wheel of the Big Dummy. I can see some sag in the BD rear wheel hoop that I assume is from the weight + my failure to tighten it down far enough. Notice from the picture that the BD is biased far to the right. This is to get the top tube hook to land at the joint between the top tube and the seat tube.

The mast has a keyed pin that lets you lay over the mast for folding the rack away. One side of the mast has teeth for the top tube clamps. The top tube clamps are open hooks with a foam padding. If your bike has exposed cables on the top tube, the rubbing will eat your paint alive. We got around that by using some pipe insulation to protect the top tube. You'll notice in the stock images the hooks rise to two different levels. One is substantially higher than the other. This means that two standard, regular height bikes won't fit the rack. The only reason this is sort of acceptable is that the BD has a sloping top tube. I reversed the mast from the original position so that the lower hook was on the outside of the rack to allow ease of mounting the BD. Otherwise I'd have to fight the cargo bike into the car side hoops and beat up both the car and the bike in the process. I will likely modify the low hook by drilling out the silver rivets, raising the hook and drilling to remount the hook high enough to get two standard flat top tube diamond frame bikes to mount. I shouldn't have to do that.

There's already some light surface corrosion in places like the TT hook.

Condensed version (TLDR):
The rack can carry a Big Dummy, and it does that okay. The rack can't carry two adult sized standard bikes because one of the top tube hooks is too low to get the bike on. If you have bikes with sloping TTs, you may get lucky and be able to mount both bikes. There's some lash from the folding mechanism. Don't expect to actually get into the rear hatch with bikes mounted on the hitch, the securing mechanism is a purely mechanical joint that's fiddly to operate even with the hitch unloaded.
If you have a BD on here, it's going to hang way out to one side if you drive a smallish car. Otherwise the carrier works as advertised. Overall, it's fine I guess. It'll have to be since this seems to be the only ready solution. I'll go through and make some mods to get it to do what it should out of the box.

What can be done to fix the problems?

Folding mechanism lash: Add plastic washers to still allow the mechanism to fold, but take out the lash.

Raising and lowering the assembly while loaded: Add some sort of assistance (spring or gas shock) to raise and lower the assembly. Redesign the locking assembly from pins to an easier system. A friend has a Swagman (I think) carrier and it has a button on top that allows you to release the assembly, not pins that you have to fight to align while lifting up the assembly with the bikes loaded on it.

Top tube hooks: increase the mast height to allow the hooks to raise high enough to pick up larger frames.

Long winded, but hopefully this helps someone.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

This rack basically does the job I need it to, but it isn't perfect. The ratcheting mechanism on the center mast is not always eager to slide up when I press the button. The end caps through which the wheel straps thread are very loose, so I'm always a little worried they will fall out. Those nylon wheel straps pull on their plastic buckle at a weird angle that makes me wonder how strong the assembly is. These minor issues aside, I have no problems with the rack. For the price in comparison to some of the competition, it is a good rack.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

Easy to assemble. Used today for first time. Easy adjustment for fitting bikes. Bikes stayed in locked position with no movement.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

So far my purchase and assembly of my bike rack has been uneventful. After placing the order, I was notified that it may be several weeks before it will be available to ship. I was offered the opportunity to rethink my purchase and order a different rack. After reviewing the suggested substitution, I responded that I would be comfortable waiting for my original purchase to ship. Approximately a week later, I was notified that my rack is now shipping ahead of schedule. It arrived when promised. I was securely packed and was delivered with no visible signs of wear and tear on the packaging. When I opened it, I was pleased to see that all the pieces were packed well with Styrofoam and additional boxes to keep the parts intact and not scratched. I was very pleased with this; we all have received boxes that showed wear and tear when they were delivered and found the pieces in a jammed bundle in the box. Great to see that etrailer believes in great packaging. Assembly took about an hour. The instructions were good but not perfect. I haven't used the rack yet. Here in Wisconsin, the weather is not very inviting to pack up my bike and go riding on one of the great trails we have available. I'm confident that the rack will work well. If not, I will be back to let you know. Since I haven't physically used it yet, I won't be able to give it a five-star review. Again, I don't know why it wouldn't get one from what I've seen and heard on the website. Let's go biking!


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

I would have given this bike rack a 5 star except for two issues.
1. the instructions to put it together are hard to understand but keep in mind I do not following them anyway but it was simple to put together
2. When it tips away from the vehicle with the bikes on the inside the pickup the end gate will hit the bike peddles, a fix for that is to extend the main tube from the receiver hitch accordingly. I did not try it on a SUV with the hatch. I think that would work fine.
I also like the way it folds up when there is no bikes on it so it is out of the way (see picture)
It is a well made bike rack and I would definitely recommend it


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

My review is for the model that carries recumbent bikes. We love this model because it folds/tilts up close to the car when not in use. We spent a lot of time searching the Internet to find a relatively inexpensive model that had the tilt capability. If you couldn’t tilt it up, you wouldn’t be able to close the garage door or you would have to remove the carrier when not in use.

When closed, the carrier does not interfere with the operation of the hatchback (on a Dodge Caliber). We use it to carry a Day 6 bike and a recumbent bike. The slots for the wheels are adjustable for the different lengths. It is absolutely perfect for our purpose and looks stylish on the back of the car. I will try to upload a few pictures (which were taken when I had two Day 6 bikes loaded on it).

It was on back order at eTrailer, but we were happy to wait a few weeks for it. We were kept informed on the status of our order by regular e-mails. Once they received it in stock, the turnaround time to get it to us was very quick, only 2 or 3 days as I recall.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

Installed the HR1000 and the Drawtite hitch. Was very easy. The photos and videos on etrailer website were great, being able to refer to them for any questions during the assembly. The rack works great and we are able to open the hatchback on the rear of the prius without even having to tilt the rack and bikes back. VERY pleased.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

Pros: Great rack for our two bikes! Fits nicely into the class 1 trailer hitch on my wife's Nissan Altima. Easy to use and holds bikes securely even on highway and gravel country roads. Locking bike arms and locking hitch bolt are a nice feature to deter theft. Would buy again!

Cons: Locking bike arms work well overall but require just the right touch to make them go up when you want to take your bike off. Hitch bolt is longer than it needs to be, but not too difficult to use.

Still working great after a year. Easy to take on and off. A few cosmetic rust spots, but no issues with durability so far. Would recommend and buy again!

Great bike rack, easily assembled, fits our two bike perfectly. Sturdy, easy to load and unload bikes, love the tilt feature. Happy to be able to lock the bikes and the hitch lock. Haven’t used it on a drive yet but I’m sure we will be pleased!


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

We were looking for something to accommodate a Day 6 bicycle - longer and heavier (with an e-bike kit) than a regular bike, and without a crossbar. We didn't need the length of the recumbent rack, but it was on sale for less than the regular rack, and it also allows us to space the bikes out somewhat more. What a joy this rack is to assemble! Very solid, and everything just fits perfectly. But the rack and two heavy e-bikes make quite a load for our little Prius, so I added a couple of Curt cam buckle stabilizing straps. Now feels very stable, and relatively easy to lift and secure the bicycles.

GREAT bike rack. Very easy to use (even for a novice) and very sturdy/stable. It works well for my e-bike (which is why I chose it), and my road bike.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

Assembly and attachment to my car was very straight forward and easy. It seems to be a sturdy unit. It’s s going to be nice to have a bike rack that is made to accommodate a recumbent. In the past have always made due with a more universal type racks which to be honest were a little sketchy? I am trying it out this weekend a 400 mile round trip should be a good test.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

This bicycle carrier is working very well, carrying both my recumbent bicycle (65" spread axle to axle)and my wife's regular bike. The hitch attachment fits relatively tight with little wobble, which I appreciate. The carrier itself is well built and is easy to work with. As would be expected of a carrier that can handle two 50 lb bikes, it is a little heavy. The only down-side is that I am unable to open the back hatch door of my RAV4 with the bikes on the rack, even after tilting the rack back. I can live with that.... all in all, a good purchase at a good price.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

Great product. More stable than my prior swagman, which had a lower weight capacity & could not handle my tandem bike. This will handle my tandem. However, the bike does extend a bit beyond the dimensions of my Jeep; so I applied some reflective tape to the tire holders to ensure it is clearly visible to other vehicles.


Review from a similar Sport Rider in Hitch Bike Racks

I wish the frame hooks pivoted. It's very combersome to fit the front bike with the hook in the way. You need to first tilt the carrier down, the need assistance planting the bike.

  • Folding Platform Bike Rack that Fits 1.25 and 2 in Hitch of Motorhome and Car for Folding Bikes
    The ultimate solution is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider bike rack part # HR1000Z-FB as it fits both hitch sizes, is approved for use at the back of a motorhome which is rougher than a vehicle, and has bike frame clamps that are designed for attaching to alternative frame bikes like what you have. See the review video I attached for this as well.

  • Bike Rack Similar to Thule DoubleTrack that Can Carry Fat Bikes
    The Thule Doubletrack # TH990XT you have is only compatible with a max tire width of 2-1/2" and unfortunately doesn't have the ability to upgrade to cradles that fit with fat tires. With that being said, the Hollywood Racks # HR1000Z-FB is a similar bike rack that is compatible with tires that are up to 5 inches in width and would work great.

  • Lock Recommendation for Use with Hollywood Rack Bike Rack # HR1000Z-FB
    Wow, I am sorry to hear about that. Thieves are the worst. I'd agree that hook isn't hard enough to defeat. I'd maybe run a cable lock through the bike frame too and then back to the safety hooks of the hitch like with the # e98891 for added security.

  • Differences Between the Hollywood Racks Sport Riders, SE, and SE2
    The main differences are the weight capacities, shank sizes, and straps. We have 10 different variations of the Sport Rider on our site and Hollywood Racks is always updating their racks and creating new unique variations like with cargo carriers # HR1450Z-85 or fat bike loops # HR1000Z-FB. The Sport Rider is usually less weight capacity, can fit 1-1/4 or 2" hitch and is more affordable. Sport Rider SE usually has massive weight capacity and electric bike capability. Sport Rider SE2 is...

  • Does Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bikes Have Lock for Hitch Pin
    That is an excellent question and one I've often wondered myself. Unfortunately Curt decided to add locks for the bikes but not for the racks like the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bikes # C18085-FB that you referenced. Bike rack hitch pins have unique designs so only certain locks fit. Curt doesn't have a solution and we have yet to find a lock that will fit the end of their threaded anti-rattle pin. And there are no other threaded anti-rattle pins that can be used in it's place. If...

  • Hollywood Rack E-Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying Two RadRover E-Bikes
    We have just what you need. Hollywood Racks makes a rack specifically for the heavier E-bikes like your RadRovers with the part # HLY84FR which has an 80 lb per bike capacity and has wider wheel hoops to allow fat bikes up to 5" wide to fit too right out of the box.

  • Comparing Draw Tite to Curt Hitches for 2015 Volvo XC60
    For the most part the Curt # 13268 and the Draw-Tite # 75671 and # 76116 are going to be the same hitch; they're all square tube designs and provide you with a 2" receiver. I generally prefer Curt hitches when available since we've found that the powder coating on those hitches are a bit more durable over time and will hold up to the rigors of towing and travel. Even if it's just hauling around a bike carrier, it's still the best choice. If you're in need of a bike rack as well, the Hollywood...

  • Recommended Hollywood Rack for my Rad Rover Step Thru Fat Tire Bike
    I have a good solution but the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack for 2 Fat Bikes part # HR1000Z-FB is only rated to carry 45 lbs. per bike so it is well below what your application requires. Instead use the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes part # HLY74FR. It can handle 80 lbs. per bike slot and will handle up to a 5" wide tire. I understand that you are just over 80 lbs. with your bike and we can get around that by removing the battery from the bike during...

  • Bike Rack And Hitch Combo for 2 Fat Tire Bikes On 2007 Honda Civic Or 2006 Dodge Caravan
    For your 2007 Honda Civic I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch 1-1/4" Receiver Part # C11391. This is a great class I hitch and will allow up to 200 pounds total for the tongue weight capacity. This weight rating is the amount of weight that will load downward onto the hitch. It is definitely capable of carrying a bike rack with your bikes loaded. With your 2006 Dodge Caravan Curt Trailer Hitch 2" Receiver Part # 13389 is going to be the best option. It has a tongue weight rating of 350...

  • 2017 Subaru Forester Hitch Adapter Compatibility With Hitch Bike Rack
    Thank you for your question. Adding a hitch extender to your hitch receiver reduces the maximum tongue weight of your hitch receiver by 50%. That means the weight of your hitch bike rack and the weight of your bikes, when added together, cannot exceed that amount. The hitch receiver you have installed on your vehicle is a Subaru hitch receiver with a maximum tongue weight of 200lbs. With the Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # HTAD, your new maximum tongue weight would...
