Expert Answers about Hitch Bike Racks


  • Will Swagman Semi Hold Fat Bikes and Clear Spare Tire on a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • First, the Swagman Semi 4.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # S64696 is not compatible with fat bikes. It accepts tires up to 3 inches wide but not to worry because there are many other options that will work with fat bikes. The Saris Freedom # SA4412B-FB is the fat bike version of the Freedom. It will accept tires up to 5 inches wide. To determine if it will clear the spare on the back of your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser there is one measurement needed. On the hitch measure from the center of the hitch...

  • Tilting Hitch Mount Platform Bike Rack for Honda CR-V and Honda Ridgeline
  • We have not fit the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450 on a Honda Ridgeline or a CR-V as of yet. However, it does sit very close to the vehicle and often limits access to the rear cargo area. Another option you may like is the Swagman G10 # S64682. I have linked a video of the G10 on a 2014 Honda CR-V and you are able to access the rear hatch. It may be different for you depending on the model year you have. The G10 will hold 2 bikes up to 45 pounds each and includes a locking...

  • Difference Between Thule T2 Pro and T2 Pro XTS 2 Bike Rack
  • The Thule T2 Pro 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH9035 referenced in your question is a great platform rack designed for Class I and Class II trailer hitch receivers. Since the release of the T2 Pro 2 Bike Platform Rack, Thule has made some improvements and released the Thule T2 Pro XTS # TH9035XTS, replacing the original T2 Pro, which is why you cannot find it on their website. The T2 Pro XTS has a greater distance between bicycles of 12-1/2 inches when compared to the 11 inch measurement...

  • Can the Swagman XC Hold Fat Bikes on a 2011 Kia Sorento with 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • To be clear the Swagman XC # S64650 also does not tilt. With that said this is one of the highest rated bike racks. Out of the over 400 reviews it has a near perfect score. So that is saying something. As it comes it is not designed for fat bike tires but you could add wheel hoops # S64674 and they will accommodate tires up to 5 inches wide. Adding these will be good for 1 bike so if you have 2 fat bikes you would need 2 sets total. There are some racks that can be used with fat...

  • Will Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack Fit Curt Hitch of 2013 Mazda 3
  • Yes, the Swagman XTC part # S64670 that you referenced will fit and work well in the Curt hitch part # C11383 that you have installed on your 2013 Mazda 3. This rack is designed to fit 1-1/4 inch hitches like this and we have found works very well in them. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well.

  • Differences Between Hollywood Racks SE2 Racks HR1455E and HR1450E
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Electric Fat Tire Bicycles # HR1455E and the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450-FB are very similar bike racks but the key difference is that the # HR1455E is designed for E-bikes which are much heavier so the rack is reinforced more so that it has higher capacities. This rack has a capacity of 80 lbs per bike whereas the # HR1450-FB only has a 45 lb per bike capacity.

  • 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited Bike and Kayak Carrier Recommendation
  • For kayaks the best option is a roof rack carrier. The Thule Traverse Square Bar Roof Rack, which would consist of the parts listed below will be compatible with the glass roof on your 2013 Sonata. 58 Inch Load Bar, part # THLB58 Thule Traverse Foot Pack, part # TH480 Vehicle Specific Fit Kit, part # THKIT1577 For kayak carriers the Thule part # TH834 would work well as a J-style rack for each kayak. Now for carrying the bike I would recommend you use the hitch of your vehicle...

  • Recommended RV Rated Bike Rack For 2014 Mercedes Benz Sprinter
  • We don't have specific fits for a hitch mounted rack except for use with an RV. The Softride Dura Parallelogram # SR26247 you mentioned is not a confirmed fit for an RV. To keep your warranty valid, I recommend using the Swagman Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches # S64684 for the most clearance or the Swagman XP - 4 Bike Rack for 2" Trailer Hitches # S64940 for a 4 bike rack. I recommend using the locking anti-rattle hitch pin # S64027 with this carrier. There is not a tilting...

  • Will Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack Work with 2 Inch Hitch on 2013 Ford Escape
  • The Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 referenced in your question is a great option for transporting up to 2 bikes with your 2013 Ford Escape. It will slide into either a 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch trailer hitch like the one on your vehicle and has a weight capacity of 45 pounds per bike. A really nice feature of this bike rack is that it can be tilted away from the vehicle with the bikes still loaded for easy rear cargo access. The only other measurement you can look at to ensure...

  • Recommended Platform Bike Carrier For 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon That Allows Rear Cargo Access
  • We do offer platform-style bike carriers that will tilt away from the back of the vehicle with bikes loaded but the Thule Doubletrack, part # TH990XT does not have that feature. The center mast does fold down when the bikes are unloaded so you have access to the rear cargo area. The bike carrier I recommend is the Thule T2 Classic, part # TH9044. I have attached a link to an installation video of this bike rack on a 2017 Outback you can check out. As the video shows, the rack can be...

  • Can Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack Work With Bike That Has 2 Different Size Wheels
  • The Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack, part # SA4412B will work great with your bike. The wheel cradles have adjustable straps that can hold the wheels secure. The upright masts have soft rubber cradles that can hold the bikes by the top tube or down tube and will not scratch the bike frame. I have attached a link to a review video for this bike rack you can check out.

  • Yakima Dr. Tray 2 Bike Platform Wheelbase Range
  • I checked with Yakima and the wheelbase range for the Yakima Dr. Tray part # Y02474 is 48 inches and the minimum is right at 34 but there's a bit of wiggle room on that end. Tire width max for this rack is 5 inches.

  • Will VeeMe Bike Rack Fit a 2010 Scion xD
  • The Let's Go Aero Veeme part # VME-V2 can fit 1-1/4 inch size hitches like what you would have installed on your 2010 Scion xD so this rack would be compatible. I attached a review video for this rack as well. The only way you'll be able to lock your bikes to this rack/hitch is with a cable lock like our part # CAB-10 which will need to route through the bike frame and then back to the safety chain loops of the hitch.

  • Replacement Threaded Screw and Pin for Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR
  • If you are needing the Flat Cap Screw that holds the adapter on the shank of the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR, then you are needing part # 853-5787-02. If what you are needing is the replacement threaded pin for the Hitching Post Pro then you will need part # 853-5917. You can use the Ratchet with 3/4 inch Socket # PT20104-38524 to tighten the anti-rattle bolt down. This is a convenient thing to just keep in your rear cargo area so you don't have to go hunt down a wrench or...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack to Clear Spare Tire on 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
  • There are many hitch-mounted bike rack options for the Class II Trailer Hitch on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. For a hanging rack, I recommend the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack # S63360. This rack can hold up to 2 bikes of 35 pounds each. Anti-sway cradles will secure your bikes to the rack using durable rubber straps. The rack can tilt away from the vehicle after the bikes are unloaded for easy rear cargo access. The distance between the center of the hitch pin hole to...

  • Recommended Longer Threaded Hitch Pin for Pro Series Q-Slot Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack
  • I do have a solution for you, however there is not a longer, standard threaded hitch pin available that is compatible with the Pro Series Q-Slot Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack # PS63134 referenced in your question. I recommend using the Saris Hitch Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock # SA3022. This is a threaded hitch pin and lock that is compatible with the threaded shank on the Pro Series Bike Rack. It has a usable bolt length of 4-1/2 inches and will also secure the rack to the hitch on your...

  • Can Bike With Long Handlebars Allow LiftGate To Open With Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier
  • As you said, the video of the Yakima HoldUp, part # Y02443 on a 2017 Sportage shows a bike with 9-inches from the center of the handlebar stem to the outside of the handlebar. In the video there is only a couple of inches clearance when the rear liftgate is opened. Since you have a bike that has much longer handlebars I recommend using one of the outer positions of the bike carrier. This would place the end of the handlebar further away from the back of the vehicle.

  • Comparing Thule Hitching Post And Yakima DoubleDown Hanging Bike Carriers On 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • The Thule Hitching Post, part # TH934XTR and the Yakima DoubleDown, part # Y02424 are both really nice bike carriers and would both do a nice job on your 2016 Odyssey. Both have anti-sway and both tilt away from the vehicle when empty for rear cargo area access. I recommend the Thule Hitching Post because it has a higher weight capacity at 35-lbs per bike where the Yakima DoubleDown has a weight capacity of 31-lbs per bike. One nice feature of the DoubleDown is the built-in bottle opener...

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying Two 60 lb E Bikes
  • I have a hitch rack that will carry two e-bikes but the Yakima FullSwing part # Y02465 is not rated for that much weight per bike. Instead you would need a bike rack that is designed specifically for carrying the heavier e-bikes. The Hollywood Rack part # HR1450E will carry your bikes well so it would be our best recommendation.

  • Tilting Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Subaru Crosstrek
  • If you want a rack for your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek that can til with bikes loaded we have the Thule T2 Pro bike rack part # TH9035 which can fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch like the # 24886 which is confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. This would be a great option that would work well for you that we would recommend highly. Check out the review and install videos I attached for more info as well.

  • Does Yakima Fulltilt 4 Move A Lot When Installed on the Road
  • The Yakima Fulltilt part # Y02462 has an anti-rattle device built into the rack which is designed to remove sway and movement of the rack in a hitch. In general we have found this rack to be pretty stable so I wonder if your friend's rack just isn't being used properly. If you check out the test course video I attached you can see how stable the rack is through normal road conditions as well as over speed bumps. I also attached a review video that covers how to use the anti-rattle as well.

  • Recommended Hitch Bike Carrier for 2017 Kia Sportage
  • The best way to transport bikes on a passenger car is usually with a hitch-mounted rack, like the Thule Hitching Post Pro you referenced, part # TH934XTR. A video on this rack is linked for you. A hitch rack places the weight load of the rack and bikes on the vehicle's frame, its strongest part, instead of on its relatively light sheet metal the way trunk-mount racks do. For a new vehicle I definitely suggest you go for a hitch rack. This will provide the safest transport for your bikes...

  • Will the Kuat Beta Bike Rack Work With the Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The Kuat Beta # B202-114 will work great with the 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch on your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon. Since the Beta is only 18 lbs and has a weight capacity of 80 lbs, it is light enough that it will be compatible with the trailer hitch with the pin hole only 1 inch from the opening of the receiver. For peace of mind and to secure your investment and deter theft, I recommend using the Kuat Bike Rack Hitch Lock # KUATLOCK along with the Swagman Replacement Cable # S2005....

  • Measuring Clearance For Swagman XC Bike Carrier On 2014 Dodge Durango With OEM Trailer Hitch
  • To be able to determine if you have enough clearance at the rear of your 2014 Durango for a bike carrier you can take a quick measurement. You will need a tape measure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel. Place the straight edge vertically against the back of the bumper or spare tire, letting it extend below the trailer hitch receiver opening. Then measure from the center of the hitch pin to the straight edge. This will give you the distance you need to clear the bumper or spare...

  • Does the Thule Vertex 4 Bike Rack # TH9029XT Have a Hitch Lock
  • The Thule Vertex 4 Bike Rack # TH9029XT has an integrated cable lock which secures the bikes to the bike rack, but it only uses the anti-rattle hitch pin which doesn't lock. Thule does provide their Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2 which will still give you that anti-rattle feature, while also adding on the locking feature that you are looking for. You can use the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH512 to use on both the bike rack and the Snug Tite device so...

  • Will Bikes On Yakima RidgeBack Bike Carrier Interfere With Proximity Sensors On 2017 VW Alltrack
  • As you can see in the attached photo, the bike that is on the Yakima RidgeBack part # Y02457 sits pretty high above the trailer hitch receiver. Although the photo is a different vehicle than your 2017 Golf Alltrack, it gives you a pretty good idea how high the bikes will be when used with the bike carrier. I don't think you will have any issues with the sensors on your Alltrack with the RidgeBack installed.

  • Recommended 4-Bike Platform-Style Bike Carrier
  • All of the 4-bike platform-style carriers that can be converted to a 2-bike option require a tool. This is for stabilization as well as a theft deterrence. I do like the platform style carriers versus the hanging bike racks like the Thule Apex, part # TH9025 because of the adapter bar and also because the platform bike carriers hold the bikes more securely that the hanging carriers. The Thule T2 Pro, part # TH9034XT-9036XT uses Allen head bolts to hold the 2-bike add-on. This bike rack...

The Swagman XC rack has a 70 lbs weight limit or 35 lbs per bike. If your bikes happen to be heavier, then I recommend the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2 Bike Rack, # HR200. This rack has a weight limit of 90 lbs or 45 lbs per bike. You may need a bike adapter bar, like # UB01, to mount the woman's bike. The adapter bar will give you a horizontal...

You'll want the Hollywood Rack ebike rack part # HR1450E which has the capacity needed for your heavier bikes plus the hitch part # C13149 which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle that will give you the attachment point for the bike rack.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Use at Rear of RV
  • At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. The most similar bike rack to the Curt you mentioned that is...

My favorite bike rack to recommend is the Thule Vertex Swing part # TH9031XT because it can carry up to 4 bikes and can swing out and away from the rear of the vehicle to give you complete access to the rear cargo area with bikes loaded. The arms of the rack can also fold down when not in use so that the bike...

  • 2 Bike Hitch Rack Recommendation for 2017 Ford Edge
  • One of my favorite bike racks to recommend is the Saris Freedom SuperClamp part # SA4025 which would be great for carrying 2 bikes with your 2017 Ford Edge. This is a platform bike rack which will make loading and unloading bikes much easier than a hanging bike rack, it's lightweight, made in America, and only touches the bikes at the tire so you don't have to worry about the rack scratching any painted surfaces. If you were in need of a hitch as well you would want the Draw Tite hitch...

  • Need Help Installing Bike on the Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Rack
  • Swagman states that when mounting bikes to the Trailhead 3 Bike Rack, # S63365, the bikes should be mounted in alternating directions. This is done to ensure that handle bars and other bike components will not get in the way when mounting your bikes to the rack. Also, make sure that you position one of the anti-sway cradle straps close to the seat tube for each bike. Doing this will ensure a secure mount for each bike at that point on your bikes' frame.

  • The Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # NV22G referenced in your question should work great on your 2016 GMC Yukon XL that has a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. This is a really nice platform rack with large cradles to accommodate a wide variety of tires, including those on fat bikes. This rack also features a hand-tightening cam system for a tool-free installation in your hitch. You simply turn the knob to tighten the rack inside the hitch and help eliminate rattle and noise.

Once you get the measurement for your Jeep you can check out the distance the Sherpa, part # SH22G needs for clearance. That distance is 7-1/2 inches form the center of the hitch pin when the bike carrier is folded up. When it is folded down the distance form the center of the hitch pin to the carrier is 11 inches.

Both bike carriers have a 60-lb capacity per bike when carrying just 2 bikes but when the add-on is attached the weight capacity drops to 40-lbs per bike. The biggest difference is the distance from the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier when folded up or down. On the NV 2.0, the distance when the rack is folded up is 7-inches...

For a similar bike rack that can be converted from 4 to 2 bikes, I recommend the Pro Series Q-Slot # PS63138.

The measurement from the center of the hitch pin to the closest part of the rack is 7-1/2 inches, which is not enough for a Jeep tire.

This is a platform-style rack that will not have any bike frame contact and can hold 2 bikes of up to 60 pounds each.

  • Will Curt Bike Rack C18030 Fit on 2007 Toyota RAV4
  • You would have to measure from your hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear spare of your 2007 Toyota RAV4 to determine if the # C18030 will clear it. The rack has a distance of 7-3/4 inches from the pin hole to nearest portion of the mast. If the distance you measured is less than that this rack will fit. When we installed the Curt hitch part # C13149 on a 2007 RAV4 the measured distance was 6 inches so there is a very good chance the rack would work for you.

The 3 Bike Hitch Mount Folding Rack w/ Rotating Shank, Frame Mount Cradles for 1-1/4" and 2" # 63123 has a clearance from the hitch pin hole to the upright brace of 10-1/2 inches in the 2 inch configuration. If this isn't enough clearance, I recommend the Swagman Titan 3 # S63405...

  • Recommended RV And Front Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
  • If you are looking for a 2 bike rack, I recommend the Swagman Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches # S64684.

This rack is designed for RV use, so it is sturdy and it comes with an anti-rattle hitch lock and cable to secure your investment. If you are looking for more bikes or a hanging rack option, I recommend the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Silver # Y02476. This is a heavy...

  • Can 4 Electric Bikes Weighing 60-75 Pounds Each be Carried with Honda Odyssey
  • I do have a possible solution for you, however we do not currently offer a bike rack that is capable of carrying 4 electric bikes at 60-75 pounds each. The highest weight capacity of a 4-bike rack is going to be around 45 pounds per bike like the Hollywood Racks # HR1400, but these are not designed to carry electric bikes like yours.

  • Platform Bike Rack to be Used on Front Mount Hitch of 2013 Chevrolet Silverado
  • Using a bike rack that's approved for RV use, like the Swagman # S64663 you mentioned, is a pretty good idea on a front hitch. RV bike racks are built sturdier than those that aren't RV approved so they can handle the added movement from the RV's long wheel base. Having that additional stability to a rack on the front, with all of the extra wind and jarring from turns, sounds like a good idea. The # S64663 is not an XC model but it has a similar design. The XTC-2 # S64670 is a great...

  • Comparing Swagman XTC2 and XC Bike Racks

In my opinion, if given the choice between the Swagman XC, # S64650, and the XTC, # S64670, I would go with the XTC every time. The upgraded wheel loops and rubber straps better secure the bikes than the wheel loops alone on the XC. Additionally the XC can...

  • How To Determine If Yakima Fullswing Bike Rack Will Clear Tailgate of Truck When Swung Out

He said that from the top of the shank of the Yakima FullSwing part # Y02465 to the top of the swingarm measures 8-1/2 inches. So basically you would need to measure from the top of your hitch opening up 8-1/2 inches to determine if your tailgate would be able to fold down without hitting the bike rack when it is swung out.

When the bike rack is folded up, this distance is reduced to around 6-1/2 inches. If you need just a little more space, I recommend looking at the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack - Platform Style # Y02443 which has a distance of 12 inches when folded down and 7 inches when folded up.
