Swagman Race Ready Adjustable Wheel Cradles

The Race Ready lets you transport 1 bike on your roof rack crossbars. This rack has an upright arm with a locking, adjustable clamp that holds your bike securely by the front wheel and a wheel cage that stabilizes the front wheel during transport. It secures your front and rear wheels with ratcheting straps that slide along the wheel tray to accommodate bikes of different lengths. It clamps to most crossbars, and the upright arm folds down for storage when not in use.


Padded, Ratcheting Hook

Swagman Race Ready Adjustable Upright Arm

The ratcheting hook on the upright arm holds your bike firmly by the front wheel - no frame contact. The padded hook won't scratch or scuff the tire, and the built-in lock secures the bike to the rack.


Wheel Cage

Swagman Race Ready Wheel Cage

It includes a wheel cage that stabilizes the front wheel to prevent shifting during transport.


Folding Design

Swagman Race Ready Upright Arm Folds Down

Both the upright arm and the wheel cage fold down when not in use. This improves overhead clearance so it's easier to park in your garage with the rack installed.


Sliding Wheel Straps

Swagman Race Ready Sliding Wheel Straps

The sliding wheel straps let you quickly secure your front and rear wheels to the carrier. These straps slide along the wheel tray so that you can carry bikes of different lengths.


Easy, Clamp-On Installation

Swagman Race Ready Adjustable Upright Arm

The Race Ready clamps easily to most crossbars - no tools required. Remove the hand knobs and lower clamps on the front and rear crossbar mounts, position the rack on your crossbars, then replace clamps and tighten the hand knobs.

Rack works well and is very dependable, even for long trips. However, using it for a fat bike has the disadvantage of lifting a bike that heavy onto my wife’s SUV roof. 665295

Ask the Experts about this Swagman Roof Bike Racks

  • Can the Swagman Race Ready Roof Bike Rack Be Secured to the Crossbars
    The Swagman Race Ready Roof Bike Rack part # S64705 does allow you to lock the bike to the rack but not the rack to the vehicle. That said, I do have a very similar bike rack which will allow you to lock the bike to the rack and the rack to the vehicle. For this, you'll want to use the Yakima FrontLoader Wheel Mount Bike Carrier part # Y02103 with the Yakima Same Key System part # Y07202.

  • Swagman Skyline Roof Bike Rack Availability
    We do carry the Swagman Skyline roof bike rack part # S64705. This is a great wheel mounted carrier that can fit round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars that aren't wider than 3 inches and spaced wider than 30 inches.

  • Can Swagman Race Ready Bike Rack Attach to Alternative Frame Bike
    The picture of your bike's crossbar did not come through but since the Swagman Race Ready Roof bike rack # S64705 actually grabs the front wheel and does not touch the bike frame at all the frame design would not matter. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Maximum Bike Wheelbase Swagman Skyline Roof Mounted Bike Rack # S64705 Can Accommodate
    According Swagman, their Skyline # S64705 Roof Mounted Bike Rack you referenced will accommodate bikes with wheelbases up to 52 inches. The bike rack is compatible with vehicle crossbars that are 3 inches or less wide and whose bar spread (center to center distance between front and rear crossbar) is up to 30 inches. If the rack is being installed on a large SUV, you might benefit from a tire step like part # TH2100 that would make accessing the roof much easier. You can see a...

  • Replacing a 10 Year Old Roof Mounted Bike Carrier
    I contacted a few manufacturers and we couldn't find a match for your rack. In this case, I would recommend buying a new carrier. A particularly popular, new rack is the Swagman Race Ready, part # S64705. This rack offers an integrated wheel mount with lock and is low framed so it is easy to load. I've also included a link to all roof-mounted bike racks that include locks so you can peruse all of your options.

  • What Is the Highest Weight Rated Roof Mount Bike Rack
    I can confirm that the weight capacity of the Malone Pilot TC ST Roof Bike Rack part # MPG2103 is 33 lbs.

  • How To Carry 5 Bikes On a 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI
    You are definitely on the right track to carrying 5 bikes on your 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI. I recommend to use the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7309 which is a concealed 2" hitch for the Golf GTI. You can then use any 2" hitch compatible bike rack that you'd like but you will need to stay under 300 lbs which is factoring the weight of the rack itself and the bikes. I recommend to carry 3 bikes on the hitch and 2 bikes on the roof. For the rack, I recommend the Saris...

  • Will Fat Bike Adapter TH5981 Fit a Thule Criterium Bike Rack
    I can only confirm that Fat Tire Adapter Kit # TH5981 fits the Thule ProRide bike rack 598003. I wish I had better news for you. There are some roof mount bike racks that are designed for fat bike use such: RockyMounts TomaHawk # RKY1222 RockyMounts BrassKuckles # RKY1201-FB Rhino-Rack Hybrid for Fat Bikes # RRRBC050-FB Swagman Race Ready # S64705 I have linked videos below of some of these racks.

  • How to Carry a Dirt Bike and Mountain Bike on 2017 Nissan Armada
    You can carry a dirt bike and mountain bike with your 2017 Nissan Armada, though there isn't a single carrier for both options at the same time. In order to do so you will need a roof rack, roof bike rack and dirt bike carrier such as the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101. Then, for a roof rack, so long as you have the factory raised side rails I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack - Aero Crossbars - Raised, Factory Side Rails # MPG216. This is a budget-friendly...

  • Trailer Hitch and 4 Bike Carrying Recommendation for 2007 Lincoln MKZ
    Although they're a little different in design, the Draw-Tite # 24775 and the Curt # C11329 both have the same weight capacities and would install in the same manner. Either would work fine for you, and in this instance, you could choose the less expensive option and not feel as if you've sacrificed anything. You can use an adapter like # HTAD, but there's 2 problems with doing that. Both the hitch and bike rack manufacturers state that no more than 2 bikes should be carried in a bike...

  • Roof Rack and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2005 Fleetwood Bayside Pop Up Camper
    To carry bikes on the roof of a pop up camper you first need the camper to have a roof rack. You can install the Swagman Roamer LT # S80510. Then you'll need roof mount bike carries to go on the roof rack. The Swagman Race Ready # S64705 holds the bikes by the wheels without making any contact with the frame. It's also universal with a sliding rear-wheel holder so it'll be easier to fit bikes of difference sizes.

  • How to Carry 5 Bikes With 2016 Subaru Outback That Has OEM Factory Trailer Hitch Receiver
    So the factory trailer hitch on a 2016 Subaru Outback is a Class I hitch, and because of that, it is only capable of hauling a maximum of 2 bikes on a rack. In order to carry 5 bikes with your '16 Outback, you'll need to carry two bikes with a hitch rack and three more on the roof. So for a hitch rack I recommend the Swagman Trailhead 2-Bike Rack # S63360. If you are carrying bikes with a step-through frame or a small child's bike you'll also need Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005. Then...

  • Recommended Roof Rack Mounted Carrier for Fat Bike on 2015 Nissan Rogue
    The Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack # TH599000 will work with the Fat Bike Adapter for Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack # TH599100 for tires up to 5 inches wide. With this rack, I also recommend the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 2 # TH450200 to secure your investment. A great cost efficient alternative is the Swagman Race Ready Roof Bike Rack # S64705 which is compatible with fat bike tires up to 5 inches wide. I've attached the link to all your compatible options to assist.

  • Roof Bike Rack Recommendation Bike with 48 inch Long Wheelbase
    For a bike rack with a 48.6 inch wheelbase the Yakima Frontloader # Y02103 would be just little bit too short. For a better solution the Swagman Skyline part # S64705 can fit wheelbases that are up to 52 inches so it would be your best solution for such a long bike.

  • Recommendation for Carrying 4 Bikes with Pop Up Camper
    There are a few different options available for transporting 4 bikes with your pop up camper, depending on how your camper is constructed. First, if your camper features a steel, 4 inch x 4 inch square bumper, you can use a bumper mount hitch like the Ultra-Fab # UF35-946402 to provide a 2 inch receiver for an RV approved, hitch-mounted bike rack. You can use # UF35-946401 if you instead have a 4-1/2 inch x 4 inch bumper on the camper. From there, I recommend taking a look at the Yakima...

  • Recommendation For Carrying 5 bikes on 2013 Toyota Prius
    For your 2013 Toyota Prius, I recommend the Rola TX-102 2-Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # 59400 which has an integrated cable lock and is able to carry 2 bikes. This is the maximum number of bikes that can be carried on a Class I trailer hitch receiver, so a bigger rack really doesn't help you any. This rack has the anti-sway cradles and also is able to tilt away to allow access to your rear cargo area. I recommend the hitch lock # e98879 to secure the rack to your hitch. To...

  • Recommended Roof Rack, Bike Rack, and Roof Basket for 2004 Jeep Liberty
    The Swagman Race Ready Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount # S64705 is a great option to use with a compatible roof basket. Unfortunately the Curt # C18115-117 is not compatible with bike racks. I recommend using a roof rack like the Yakima MegaWarrior Extra Large Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07080. This carrier is 52" long x 48" wide x 6-1/2" tall and has an adjustable load bar. This system can lock to your crossbars using brackets # Y07064 and locks # Y07202. If you don't already have crossbars,...
