sport rider

The Sport Rider Special Edition platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry 4 bikes on the rear of your vehicle. This versatile rack is easy to use, and it features locking frame hooks and adjustable wheel hoops so you can quickly load and unload your bikes. An anti-rattle system tightens the rack's shank to your hitch receiver to prevent it from rattling around inside the tube.


1400 SE 2-Piece

The Sport Rider SE consists of a two-bike base unit and a removable two-bike extension unit, allowing you to use the carrier as either a two- or four-bike rack. The 2 pieces make the rack easy to install because you can slide the base into your hitch and secure it before adding the extension.


Locking, Ratcheting Hooks

ratcheting hooks

The Sport Rider SE uses locking frame hooks to secure your bikes. The 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

wheel hoops

The wheel hoops accommodate bicycles with wheelbases up to 60" by sliding along the horizontal arms. They are secured in place with easy-to-use hand knobs, and the Velcro-like hook-and-loop straps fasten the wheels to the hoops.


Fat Bike Wheel Cradles

If you want to carry a fat bike on the Sport Rider SE, you can replace the rack's wheel hoops with fat bike hoops (sold separately).


Folding, Tilting Design

tilting

The rack tilts, with or without bikes loaded, for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. Simply remove the pivot pin, pull the bottom quick-release spring pin, and lower the rack.


folding

The rack also folds up against the back of your vehicle when it's not in use. To raise the rack, just pull the upper quick-release spring pin and lift.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle System

The rack installs in your hitch without the need for tools. Simply slide the shank into your receiver until the welded stop plate contacts the hitch. The stop plate saves you from getting on your hands and knees to align the pin holes while inserting the hitch pin. Once the pin is in place, attach the lock pod. Lastly, use the integrated anti-wobble handle on the front of the shank to tighten the rack inside your hitch receiver and prevent it from rattling.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

The lock cores in the frame hooks hold the bike down on the rack and prevent them from moving. Also, the lock pod attaches to the hitch pin to secure the rack to your vehicle. These locks are conveniently keyed alike. For extra protection, the 8' long security cable wraps through the bike frames, connects to the hitch pin, and is secured to the pin by the hitch lock. The extension cable can be added to the 8' cable to help secure 4 bikes to the rack.


Add-On Adapters

Sport Rider SE Cargo Carrier

If you want to carry both 2 bikes and extra gear, an add-on cargo basket (sold separately) is available.


 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 SE, you can use the HRTRK-ADP adapter (sold separately). Or if you want to transport one standard bike and either one recumbent delta trike, one recumbent tadpole-style trike, or one adult trike, then you can use the HRTRK-ADP-2 adapter (sold separately).


Note: The trike adapters can only be used with the Sport Rider SE's two-bike base unit.

I am very pleased with this rack. As you see in the picture I only assembled the 2 bike option. We bought the 4 bike option to be able to carry the grandkid's bikes when needed. This rack easily accomodated my Surly Big Dummy (60" wheelbase) and my wife's Xtracycle RFA electric bike. The only drawback is that it is a little bit clumsy to get the back bicycle onto the rack. Hopefully I will get the hang of it. The Rack is extremely stable. The hitch tightner works fabulous!

Just received my rack and assembled it. I had a small issue with the bolt of the second rack but got it through eventually with a little hammering. Loaded all four bikes on the rack today and took it for a test drive. Very strong and steady. It looks really nice and so far I like it.

Rack is still solid and I like it very much. No issues at at all.

This rack has all the bells and whistles of a much more expensive rack at a significantly better price. My 14 year old son put it together easily from the pictures (I had a harder time following the instructions) but between the two of us it didn’t take more than 30 minutes. It is super solid, holds the bikes very securely, and I love the built in locks for each bike, which you pay a lot more for with other brands. It’s just really solid and well designed. The photo shows the 2 rack configuration on my 2018 Honda Pilot. The rear door is able to open without having to put the rack down. My son and I are exploring the great mountain biking around Fort Collins and it’s great to have the bikes on in a minute and go. Thanks Noah for making this suggestion!

Such a fabulous bike rack!! The rack is simple to mount onto the van’s hitch. It’s easy to add or take off the outer rack either before or after putting it on the hitch. The two part design is a great feature for taking a bike to the shop for repair, for when it’s just the two of us, or we can quickly add the second half for two more bikes. It folds up against the back of the van easily and securely. When needed it holds four adult bikes without any problems. Bikes are SO enjoyable to load onto this rack - way better than racks that support the bike by the frame. I have a Y frame bike so it was always challenging to load it onto a traditional rack. The tire supports move to accommodate any size bike. Bikes that have the lower frame get mounted closer to the vehicle for each section of the rack. The rack is stable when driving, even when fully loaded. The locking feature is nice, especially for when we’re away from home and the bikes stay on the rack overnight. Be careful when lifting as the rack itself is heavy.


Comments
Id buy it again in a heartbeat! Were about to take our third trip to the beach a 900 mile round trip with four bikes using this rack. Weve owned it for at least two years and it has stayed in great working order. The tire adjustments are still easy to use as are the locking mechanisms. We use it throughout the summers for day trips and its so simple to use our kids can get the bikes loaded.

I've been using a Yakima RidgeBack 4-Bike for many years however I needed to find a bike rack that would transport my wife's new Trek Verve +2 Lowstep E-Bike. Since it is a Step-through and weighs 52 lbs. with the battery, I was uncomfortable hanging the bike off the RidgeBack. I typically only transport 2 bikes however occasionally need to pack up 3 or 4 bikes. After much research, I decided on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE4. I loved the fact that I could take off the extension and make it a two back rack and appreciated the price. I was however concerned the E-Bike might be too heavy as the specifications note a 50 lb. per bike limit so I reached out directly to Hollywood Bikes. I asked if they thought it'd be alright to place the E-Bike closest to the vehicle with the battery removed. I heard back from them within 24 hours and they agreed, with the battery removed it would be fine. I ordered the SE4 on Monday morning and it arrived Thursday. It was well packaged and easy to assemble using the instructions. I had absolutely no issues and it went together perfectly. The rack is of very good quality and sturdy even when loaded up. I really like that the bikes can be locked down and everything, including the supplied cable is keyed alike. I was able set it up for only 3 bikes as that is all we're taking to Florida next week. I'll follow up after our trip.

A year later and my Sport Rider SE4 is still working great! Use mainly for two bikes but have hauled four several times.

I purchased a Hollywood Sports Rider SE 1400 bike rack and a trailer hitch for my new Subaru Ascent. To my amazement it was on my doorstep in 2 days! I landed up assembling it even though it will be springtime before we are able to use it. The construction was very precise and things fit together easily! It is VERY sturdy and when bikes are not on it, my rear gate easily clears the rack so I can access the back of my car. It was a good value for the cost. I am happy with the product and the service!

It’s the only bike rack we’ve ever owned, but we really like it. It can fit 1-4 bikes (2 with training wheels if you’re careful), easy to get the bikes on and off, multiple locks to discourage theft, tilts out of you way (up and down depending on what you need). Definitely recommend it.

I've only just received my HR1400 Hollywood rack, assembled it, installed in on my car, and loaded it with 4 of our bikes, but I'm very impressed so far. It's exactly what I was hoping for. It is heavy, but it's extremely sturdy. I found it very easy to mount on my car and remove when I do so taking advantage of the fact it breaks into 2 pieces (which it does very easily). I'm looking forward to using it on our next outing. By the way, etrailer.com rocks! You had the best price on this rack and it was sitting on my doorstep 2 days after ordering (ordered Wed afternoon and delivered Friday). In addition, I had no issues with the packaging or the contents being damaged as a few others have mentioned in reviews.


Comments
Ive owned this rack for a year now and I still love it. I would definitely buy it again if I ever had the need. Clearances are fine on my vehicle. I have no issue with the Velcro-like straps. The only issue I have is that I cant open the back of my car when bikes are loaded. But honestly, I dont find that to be a huge deal.

I was looking for a 4 bike hitch mounted rack of this style. My main goal was to have it fit my 05 Jeep Wrangler with 31 x 10.5 tires. I wanted to make sure the rack would rest in the folded up positon when not in use. I also wanted the flexibility to have only a 2 bike mount for when I ride solo. I emailed etrailer and they were quick with a response and included a video as well. I placed the order a week ago Saturday, and my rack was delivered ahead of schedule. I was blown away by the service I received from etrailer, and am very pleased with the rack. I found it easy to install and it totally does what I need it to do. Thank you etrailer. Keep up the great job.


Comments
I love it. It is a breeze to put it on and take it off. When it is on, I feel secure knowing that everything is locked to my vehicle. The rack itself when not in use tilts up and fits perfectly against the spare tire on my Jeep.

Bought the rack to use with my 2014 BMW X1, thanks Mathew for your help, we loaded it up with 4 bikes ( one of them a heavy cruiser ), drove the car to mammoth Lakes which is 300 miles away. I was averaging 65 to 70 miles per hour, the bikes stayed secured and no noises. Great product !

The rack is awesome, and works great. It's just a little heavy and bulky. I was able to fit 2 adult and 2 kid bikes after some trial and error to get them all to fit. I did not need any adapters for the kid bikes.

Great communication from seller. Fast shipping, particularly since it's free. Item arrived and was in good shape. Heavy and awkward to carry so be careful how far you have to lift it. Don't ask your wife to pick it up. Not very difficult to put together, although slowed down by cumbersome instructions with poor pictures and it took time to identify each part as the correct one. Good quality unit, although some packing styrofoam was glued to bars leaving several stretches of white, sticky goo on the upwards facing bars where the tire holders slide. Makes adjusting the tire holders more difficult. Overall a good product and handles the 4 bikes well. Will see over time how it holds up to consistent use.

I bought a truck and went to a tailgate pad. I sold the rack. It worked well. Thanks

Lets be honest, there are better looking racks. But I work at etrailer.com and can use pretty much any bike rack in the world. When it came time to go on an adventure race I chose this rack to get my teams bikes there. When we got home one of my team mates bought one because he was so impressed. When it came time to go on a 12 hour road trip with my family I chose the Hollywood. It is a star. Not a Marilyn Monroe, more of a Sylvester Stallone. The thing is solid and it works really well. It is heavy, but any 4 bike rack is going to be on the heavy side. The option to remove the 2 bike extension is nice because it makes the rack easier to handle when you only need 2 bikes. The antirattle knob snugs the rack up in the hitch super tight. Having the cable lock and hitch lock included and keyed the same makes it easy to lock the bikes up when you stop for dinner. The folding feature uses pins and clips instead of the switches found on some other racks. The pins and holes were a bit tough to get aligned at first. I had to ask my wife to lift up on the end of the rack just a hair to get the pin started. She got chain grease on her and I quickly learned that asking for her help was not a good solution to my pin alignment problem. So I grabbed my drill and a bit that was sized the same as the pin hole and cleaned out the holes. About one minute later the pin was sliding in and out perfectly and my wife will never get greasy again. In a nutshell this rack is not the lightest, not the easiest and not the prettiest, but I love it. It is easy enough to use that it is not a hassle, it locks to keep the bikes safe, is a great price for the features and it is solid, very solid. You can see in the pictures that I have used this rack extensively and it still is working great.

Hi, my question is whether you have any frame damage on your biks after your long trips. Vs. going with the t2 or hold up style.
-- comment by: nate - 05/07/2015


Comments
Nate, I have used the rack on a few long trips, to Colorado, Wisconsin and to our adventure race. So far there has not been any frame damage. The hook that comes down on the frame has a pretty thick pad. One of the wheel clamp racks would prevent the possibility of frame damage, but I think it will be a long time before the pad on the Hollywood wears out and it is an issue.

Very solid and well made. Does not rattle or shake, even in 4-bike mode. The pin and anchor arm system is simple and robust, but the arms are sometimes difficult to release and the pins can be hard to remove with bikes on. The rack works well overall but definitely does not have the ease-of-use features that come with some higher-end racks.


Comments
I recommend upgrading to bike rack part # HR4000
Hollywood Racks Destination Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount
$339.99
. The Destination rack uses rotating frame holders to secure your bikes. The rubber padded holders rotate 360 degrees, and move up and down the center mast independently, to accommodate frames of various shapes and sizes. The holders have padded ratcheting straps to secure your bike by their frame.

I just used this on my 2012 Honda Pilot for a road trip over 700 miles. I hauled my 29er along with my kids bikes (a 20" & a 24"). It works great for hauling different sizes of bikes together. It was rock solid and the bikes were absolutely stable and secure. It takes a few minutes to figure out the best configuration for your specific bikes when you first set it up but once you have a system its super quick and easy. This rack is heavy and solid and should last forever (except for maybe the velcro straps which do seem sufficient for now and would be easy to replace if needed). Even though it is heavy I am still able to carry it around and install/remove it by myself (5'4-130 lb woman). I love that the locks were included making this a great value. I also love that its two separate parts so I can use it as a 2 bike carrier or a 4 bike carrier when needed. Many times I am only hauling one bike and dont need a ginormous 4 bike carrier. Etrailers shipping was super fast!! The only thing I can criticize is the terrible instructions but if you look at the pictures on the box you can figure it out fairly quickly, it really wasnt difficult. Overall, I am very, very happy with this bike rack!

The quality of the trailer hitch and assembly is excellent. Very happy with the quality and the purchase price. Given I was installing on a 2004 Honda Odyssey in 2015, I did have difficulty with the pre-drilled holes and threads on the frame of the vehicle. I made several attempted to clean the threads but was unsuccessful. I eventually took the hitch assembly to a local installer and they put it on for $[...]. The instructions provided for self installation were very clear and straight forward. I use my hitch assembly to haul bikes around to various triathlons. I purchased the bike carrier separately and it slides right into the hitch opening and locks on.

Ordered this to replace my Kuat Transit 3 since I now have 4 bikes. I could not have been more pleased. I shopped around for different brands and features and the Hollywood Sport Rider 4 checked all the boxes. The ability to convert from a 2 bike to a 4 bike rack, lockable, solid mounting system, and of course priced affordably, made this a perfect choice. Install was easy and smooth. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a convertible bike rack.


Comments
After a year of use, I can honestly say that this was the best choice I could have made. Ive used it to carry all 4 of our bikes, converted it to carry 2 with ease, basically what I needed and looked for when I was deciding what bike rack to get. The tension system works great and the track does not dance around like most racks, even when hauling all 4 bikes. I also like the staggered system when all 4 racks are used 2 on one level, rear 2 raised slightly above. This helps with some ground clearance if the need should arise. All in all, Completely satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend to anyone who asks.

We love the Hollywood bike rack that we purchased. We even got the extension so we can carry 4 bikes. It has lock features and cable to secure the bikes. Easy to put on and off the hitch. We have used it several times even traveled to Maryland and back with our bikes. We would highly recommend this particular rack to anyone. Well worth the money! Sturdy and reliable!!!

Great bike rack, significantly cheaper than other tray-style mounts. This rack does carry a kids 16" bike (must buy the adapter from e-trailer), which is one of the reasons why we went with the Hollywood Rack. For the adult bike, we used a foam noodle on the top post to prevent damage to the gear cables. There was some paint damage to the rack that I am assuming occurred during shipping that I'll need to touch up with a can of spray-paint, but other than that, I am pleased with the rack!

So far I am very impressed with the quality of this rack. The box arrived undamaged and the rack was in perfect condition. The finish is very nice and robust powder coat. Assembly was a breeze with the included instructions. As other have mentioned it is very strong and a bit heavy.. I am 6'2 200lbs and have no trouble handling it at all by myself as long as I do it in 2 pieces. The rack is very easy to separate into 2 pieces. I haven't used it yet buy I have no doubt it will work splendidly. I hung it using a hitch mount bracket that I ordered from Amazon. I was able to hang it underneath some 12 inch shelves and all I had to do was reverse the 2 bike rear section to allow the rack to clear the shelves. Fits like a glove.

Pure awesomeness! But I’ll remind you now, lest you forget in your enthusiasm: the pin’s not stuck, you secured it down with that crank as one of the first steps. No hammer needed. Just sayin). I can’t wait for the next trip. No more fighting forever to get the handlebars untangled while I try to fit all the bikes on. Which I contend is IMPOSSIBLE on those stupid hanging rack types. No more wheels flopping in the breeze potentially scratching my car. No more removing the wheels because the bike shop sold me a carrier that was too low for my minivan. No more bikes bouncing up and down while I drive. No more scraping the exit curbs. AND I still have a decent view out of the back up camera/screen!! I was able to open the hatch with the bikes tilted. You have to hold the bike closest back a little. I let it do it by itself and the auto open forced it way through instead of stopping and it did scratch the car. But closing it, I stayed at the handle bars and gently pushed and it cleared fine. And it locks to the car. No more fear my rack will get stolen. And comes with another lock for the bikes. Sure a bottle opener would be a cool feature. I’ll rubberbad one on. It’s SO worth the money! Stop comparing and put it in the cart. By the way, the pics only show it set up with two racks. I love that I can customize it to the number of us going out for the day.

This is a great rack. Only comment I have is make sure to install the plastic bracket. Instructions I got did not mention it. I got the set for 4 bikes. When I tried it for first time it was real wobbly when I noticed that I did not install the plastic sleeve checked the instructions and was not there. Went back and checked the instruction for the 2 bike rack and was able to figure it out. Once I installed the rack is sturdy and worked great.. Rack is heavy trying to come up with a way to move around with ease. They sell a rack mover but casters are no good for going over grass.. I’m making my own.. will post pics when I finish it.

This rack works perfect with our 2015 Dodge Durango. I am able to lower it down and fully open the rear hatch which was the main reason I chose this rack. It is heavy, but the system to tighten it down in the receiver eliminates any play or wobble. I can load 4 bikes in less than 5 minutes!! I fabricated a bracket to also hold my kids trail-a-bike.

  • Can Any 2 Inch Cargo Carrier be Inserted into the Back of Hollywood Sport Rider 2-Bike Rack
    When in 2-bike mode the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z is designed to only accept its cargo carrier and is not confirmed to work with other cargo carriers. That would make your best option # HR1400Z-85 which is the 2 and 4 bike version of the Sport Rider with the cargo carrier.

  • Will Mountain Bikes, Hybrids, and Beach Cruisers All Fit on Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack
    It is much easier to load 4 bikes on a platform style carrier such as the Sport Rider, # HR1400Z. Platform style racks like this can accommodate all different bike styles even if they are much different sizes or styles. You should have no trouble using this rack with your mountain bikes, hybrid, and beach cruiser. The wheel cradles are adjustable for different wheel bases and the hooks travel up and down the center masts for different frame sizes. I have included a link to a video review...

  • What Prevents the Rear Portion of the Hollywood Racks Bike Racks # HR1400 From Getting Stolen
    The pin that secures the two pieces of the rack together to make it a 4 bike rack actually is threaded so that it there is no movement between the two pieces. In order for someone to steal the back portion of the rack he would have to have the right size wrench to un-thread it. Most bike rack thieves don't run around with sets of wrenches on them so the odds are that your rack wouldn't get stolen like this. Check out the review video I attached for this rack.

  • How Wide are Wheel Hoops of Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE
    The wheel hoops of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z can accommodate tires up to 3 inches wide. The rack is compatible with bikes with wheelbases up to 60 inches, weighing up to 45 lbs apiece. If you find yourself only needing to carry two bikes, the two bike extension is easily removable.

    When we installed hitches on a 2008 Toyota Sienna, we found that the receiver hitch pin hole was recessed under the vehicle by 3-1/4 to 4-1/2 inches. To see if the Hollywood Racks # HR1400Z rack will work on your Sienna, measure the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rear edge of the back bumper. If this distance is less than 6 inches, the rack will be able to fully fold, and will work great for you. I'll link you to an FAQ article that shows how to take that measurement.

  • Is a Bike Adapter Required to Load a Womans Bike on the Hollywood Racks SportRider SE
    A bike adapter bar is not normally required to mount a woman's bike on a bike rack like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z. The exception is if the bike has a very, very low step through frame with the top frame bar directly above the pedal crank. I have included a link to a video review of this bike rack for you.

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Fit Factory Hitch on a 2016 Toyota Highlander
    I do believe that the factory trailer hitch on the 2016 Toyota Highlander is a 2 inch and it would be compatible with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1400Z. You can measure the opening of your hitch receiver to be sure; either across or top to bottom the opening should be 2 inches.

  • Can 4-Bike Platform Style Bike Carrier be Used on a 2009 Subaru Legacy with Class III Trailer Hitch
    Yes, you can install and use a 4-bike platform style carrier with the Class III trailer hitch on your 2009 Subaru Legacy. The combined weight of the carrier and the bikes needs to be under the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. The 2 Class III trailer hitches we have for your Legacy have tongue weight capacities of 400 pounds. This is more than enough. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE, # HR1400Z, is a solid option. As a 4-bike rack it weighs 74 pounds and has a 200 pound (50...

  • Will Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Rack Clear the Bumper on a 2005 Toyota Sienna
    The distance from the center of the pin hole to the edge of the closest wheel loop is 12 inches on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE bike rack # HR1400Z. Based on the hitch install we did on a 2005 Toyota Sienna, the distance from the pin hole to the edge of the bumper was around 6 inches, so you should have enough clearance to use the Sport Rider SE rack. Double check this measurement on your Sienna in case there are any variances. I am including links to the installation instructions...

  • Can the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Carrier Be Tilted Down With Bikes Loaded
    I spoke with my contact at Hollywood Racks about the Sport Rider SE bike rack # HR1400Z. He stated that you can tilt the rack down with the bikes loaded. He also mentioned that it is most likely going to be a 2-person job: 1 person to hold/lift the bikes and 1 person to pull or insert the pin at the pivot point. I have included links to the installation instructions and a link to a video review of this rack for you.

  • Will the Hollywood Racks SE 4 Bike Rack # HR1400 Fold Up and Clear Spare of a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
    In the folded position, the closest part of this bike rack will be 6 inches away from the face of the trailer hitch receiver on the Hollywood Racks SE 4 Bike Rack, # HR1400Z. If you measure from the opening of the hitch on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler out to the furthest point out on the spare tire of your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the distance is less than 6 inches this rack would have enough clearance to fold up.

  • Platform Bike Rack for 2005 Honda Element that Allows Tailgate to Lower Fully
    It's pretty difficult to say sight unseen if the bike rack would interfere with opening the tailgate fully once it's installed. If you look at the photo I've edited for you, you can see the height of the angled portion of the shank, as well as the distance between the hitch pin hole in the shank and the closest obstruction. If you measure 8-1/2 inches rearward from the hitch pin hole, then 7 inches up, you'll be able to see where the closest part of the rack would sit in relation to the...

  • Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack Compatibility with 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Rock
    The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HR1400Z has a distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the wheel hoop of 7-1/2 inches. As long as you have that distance when measuring from your hitch pin hole past your spare tire, this rack will work well whether being used as a 2 bike or 4 bike rack. If you have long handlebars you will simply need to position them around the spare tire.

  • Can Hollywood Racks Bike Rack # HR1400 be Installed Initially as 2 Bike Rack
    Yes, you can use the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider part # HR1400Z as just a 2 bike rack and then later expand it to a 4 bike rack if you wanted to. I attached a picture that shows the rack split apart for you to check out as well.

  • Can Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack be Used on Front of GMC Sierra 2500HD
    The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack # HR1400Z can be used on the front of your GMC Sierra 2500HD but there could be some visibility issues with seeing out in front of you. The Sport Rider SE will extend 49 inches from the center of your hitch pin hole to the furthest edge of the rack so there will be 4 feet of limited visibility to the ground directly in front of you. The shank on this rack does have a 7 inch rise as well so what you can do is measure your tallest bike,...

  • Can 2002 Ford F-250 Tailgate be Lowered w/Hollywood Racks HR1400 Bike Rack Installed and Arms Folded
    I measured the Hollywood Racks bike rack # HR1400Z for you. The part that would most likely make contact with a tailgate is the bracket that holds the arm closest to the back of the truck. From the top of the receiver opening to the top of that bracket measures 10-7/8 inches (see picture). On your 2002 Ford F-250 lower the tailgate and measure from the top of the receiver opening on your hitch to the lowered tailgate. If less than 10-7/8 inches there won't be any interference.

  • Will a Step-Through Bike Fit the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1400Z
    Yes, your Jamis Explorer Femme will fit and be secure on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1400Z. The frame at the crank at 19 inches is not too low for the hooks. If you look at the rack closely you will see that one hook is taller than the other. What I would do is make sure that the shorter hook is put on the upright first followed by the longer one. This will ensure that the hook can go as low as it can to properly secure the step-through frame bike.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Nissasn Murano that Can be 2-Bike or 4-Bike Rack
    I'd go with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack part # HR1400Z. This is a 4 bike platform bike rack that can have half of the rack removed to leave you with just a 2 bike rack that would work well. Normally the bike rack setups like this are pretty expensive but this one is priced pretty decently and the Hollywood Racks are high quality racks and by far are the best bang for your buck. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Can 2-Bike Extension Be Locked to Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack
    The 2-Bike Extension on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack # HR1400Z referenced in your question will attach to the main assembly via a standard integrated pin. While the pin and extension piece cannot physically be locked to the main rack, there are a couple of features that will help deter theft of this piece and your bikes. The Platform Rack does include a hitch lock to secure the main rack to the trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle, along with an integrated...

  • Which Model of Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack is Offered
    There were some changes made to the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z in 2016. The pins to fold the rack and the hinge is now at the mast instead of the trays folding up are different. Locks have also been added to the ratcheting arms now. I went out to our warehouse to verify that all of the racks we have in stock now are the new version.

  • Will Hatch on 2018 Subaru Forester be Able to Fully Open with Sport Rider SE Bike Rack Installed
    I think that you'll have enough hatch clearance with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Bike Platform Rack # HR1400Z installed on your 2018 Subaru Forester, but since we haven't actually tested it out I honestly have no way to verify this for sure. I can say that typically the clearance boils down to the length of the handlebars so if your bikes have standard handlebar length I think you'll be okay since the hatch on a Forester is a little smaller. We have tested a few other bike racks...

  • Comparing Hollywood Racks and Curt Platform Bike Racks
    For platform bike racks you really can't beat the Hollywood Rack bike racks like the # HR1400Z. These racks are incredibly solid, well-made, and reliable. I wish the same could be said for the Curt platform racks but if there's a platform rack that's going to give someone fit and finish issues it's almost always a Curt. The # HR1400Z has a rise of 7 inches built into the shank of it so it's going to have the best ground clearance for this style of bike rack as well. I attached a review...
