Expert Answers about Hollywood Racks

  • How to Stop a Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack from Moving Too Much in the Trailer Hitch
  • Using an anti-rattle hitch and cable lock will add an element of security for the bike and racks but is not going to offer any additional support to reduce movement of the rack. I do have a couple of options for you though. First, you can find some additional support from the use of a stabilization strap such as # 18050. I have linked a video that shows how this strap works. Another option would be an additional anti-rattle device such as # RM-061 for a 2 inch hitch or # 93347 for...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Transporting 2 Electric Bikes
  • Don't worry, I can help get you what you need to transport your electric bikes and two additional bikes. First thing to know is that all racks are not created equal; so while the SE2 and SE4 Hollywood Racks bike racks look similar they cannot serve the same purpose for your electric bikes as they can for the average bike. This is due to the heavy weight of electric bikes. As you found we offer two racks that allow for 2 electric bikes to be transported with a 2 inch or Class II 1-1/4...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation that Fits Top of Hard Tonneau Cover
  • For a bike rack that can attach to the top of a hard tonneau cover like the BakFlip MX4 tonneau # BAK48203RB you'd want the very cost-effective Hollywood Racks Truck Bed Bike Carrier # HRT970. This is a bolt-on product that holds your bike at the fork.

  • Recommendation for Electric Bike Rack for 2-Inch Receiver on 42-Foot Fleetwood Discovery RV
  • After speaking to my contact at Hollywood Racks, I have found the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Carrier for Electric Bikes # HR1450Z-E is the best rack we carry to fit your needs. It is intended for 2-inch trailer hitches only and features a bolstered steel construction that can handle the extra weight of electric bicycles. My source informed me the only potential issue would occur if the rear of your RV tends to bounce or shake a lot while traveling. If this is the case, you will...

  • Comparing the Hollywood Racks SE4 and Swagman 2+2 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks
  • The Hollywood Racks SE4, # HR1400Z, and the Swagman 2+2, # S64692, are two comparable bike racks. Like you have already said, the racks can handle 2 or 4 bikes with the last 2 bike section being removable. The SE4 weighs a little less (shipping weight is 82 pounds) when compared to the 2+2 (89 pound shipping weight). For wheel cradles I give the edge to the 2+2. The actual cradles are more secure than the hoops used on the SE4. Both racks have the same 45 pounds per bike capacity so...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with Spoiler
  • I'm assuming the photo attached is your Crosstrek and because of the spoiler, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2. This is specifically made for vehicles like yours to avoid contact and damage to a spoiler. This is a very versatile and adjustable bike rack to meet your needs. I do recommend the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005 as well as the Softride # SR18679 to secure your front wheel to...

  • Differences Between Hollywood Racks SE2 Racks HR1455Z-E 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 # HR1455Z-E 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 # HR1400Z-85-FB only has a 45 lb per bike capacity.

This rack can handle two bikes up to 80 lbs each and will secure the bikes by the frame so you don't need to worry about the fenders.

  • For your 2017 Toyota 4Runner TRDPro, I recommend using the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Electric Fat Tire Bicycles # HR1455Z-E.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Electric Bikes with Fenders
  • For what you need the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2-Bike Carrier for Electric Bicycles # HR1450Z-E will be the correct solution. This rack is designed for electric bikes like what you have and would work well with your bikes that have fenders since the arms of this rack attach to the frame of the bikes and not the wheels. There isn't an add-on available for this rack though because where it would install there is bracing on this rack for the additional weight of the E-bikes. To...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for Electric Pedego Bikes

  • Best Way to Carry 2 Beach Cruisers with a 2011 Toyota Camry
  • We do have a few options that will allow you to carry your beach cruisers with your 2011 Toyota Camry. While it may be possible to carry your beach cruisers with a trunk mount bike rack, I strongly recommend using a hitch mounted bike rack like the Hollywood Racks Platform-Style Bike Rack, # HR200Z due to the weight of the bikes. Using a hitch mounted bike rack is the safest way to carry these bikes because the bikes and the bike rack will not contact your vehicle. The platform-style rack...

  • Recommended Carrier for Schwinn Meridian Adult Trike on Toyota Prius
  • All of the hitches for the Toyota Prius are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers, so as long as you have a Class I trailer hitch you can use Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000Z-R (for longer wheelbases) or # HR1000Z and then add Trike Adapter, # HRTRK-ADP, to carry the trike. This set up is Class I compatible. I have linked instructions for you on the racks and adapter. You will need to stay within the 200 pound tongue weight rating of a class I hitch or the tongue weight rating...

  • Bike Rack Needed to Transport a Recumbent Trike
  • I do have a few options for you to carry a recumbent trike on your SUV. The first option would be to use the SeaSucker Roof Bike Rack for Trikes # 298-BD1005. You will simply need to place the Vacuum Cups in the appropriate places on your roof and pump them up until the orange band disappears. This has a 45 lbs weight capacity. Another option would be to use the Yakima Boa Roof Mounted Bike Carrier # Y02065 on your roof rack. For this to be compatible with your trike you will also...

  • Weight Capacity of Hollywood Racks Road Runner 5 Bike Carrier HR520
  • The Hollywood Racks Road Runner 5 Bike Carrier # HR520 tilts down for easier vehicle access when it is not loaded with bikes. It offers a total bike weight capacity of 150-lbs. In many cases the 5 loaded bikes themselves would prevent the rack from tilting all the way down as far as it can.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack that Can Hold 16 Inch Tires on a Childs Bike
  • A 16 inch bike is small and the best option as far as a bike rack is going to be a platform style rack like # HR1400Z that you have referenced. You will need to add Kids Bike Wheel Hoop Adapters, # HRSW-ADP-2, in order to carry the 16 inch bike in the rack. The adapters will prevent the tires on the bike from going too far into the hoops on the rack. I have linked a video review and the instructions for you for the bike rack. Out of the bike rack options I think this one is the best...

  • Recommended Trunk Bike Rack for Preventing Scratches on a 2015 Mazda 6
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches or damage to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack like the Thule Helium # TH9042 and a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite # 24908. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches. But honestly it is the nature of the location of the rack and the elements it encounters while on the road....

  • Recommended 3-Bike Trunk-Mount Rack for 2007 Honda Odyssey Van
  • For your 2007 Honda Odyssey the trunk-mount bike rack that I suggest is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. This unique carrier features an innovative arched frame design that allows it to work well on vehicles with spoilers. Many otherwise excellent racks cannot be used on such vehicles but the HRF2-3 will avoid any interference with the rear spoiler. If any of the bikes does not have a horizontal top frame tube, such as some women's and alternative design bikes,...

  • Difference Between Hollywood Racks # HR1450 and # HR1450E SE2 Bike Racks
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450Z that you currently have and the SE2 # HR1450E that you referenced are essentially the same bike rack with one major difference. Your existing SE2 rack is a great carrier that features a weight capacity of 50 pounds per bike, which is really quite robust for a standard platform rack. The SE2 # HR1450Z-E on the other hand is specifically designed for electric bikes, which can get pretty heavy. This particular model rack can secure two bikes that...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack to Carry 1 Catrike Expedition Trike
  • To carry one trike (delta or tadpole, either one) the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider trike carrier, # HR1000R-TRKADP, is the rack for you. It will only hold one trike and it will fit 1-1/4 or 2 inch trailer hitches. I have included a link to a video review to the right.

  • Recommended Bike Carrier for Adult Trike
  • I spoke with my contact at Hollywood Racks and he said the reason you cannot carry and adult trike with Trike Adapter for Hollywood Rack, part # HRTRK-ADP on bike carrier # HR1450Z, is that the center of gravity on adult trikes is too high. In other words there is too much up too high. I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Trike Carrier, part # HR1450Z-R-TRKADP2. This rack will give you the versatility to be able to carry an adult trike as well as other bike styles. I have...

  • Best Bike Rack for Electric Bikes on Motorhome
  • The best bike rack for you is going to be the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2-Electric Bike Platform Rack part # HR1450E. The reason for this is because it is approved for use on motorhomes, has a 2" shank so no adapters are needed, can carry bikes up to 80 lbs each, and attaches via the frame so there will not be any issues with bikes that have fenders. It also has a lifetime warranty and comes with locks for both the bikes and rack. The Swagman Escapee 2 Bike Platform Rack part #...

  • Is There a Difference Between Hollywood Racks Bike Racks HR1450E and HR1450Z-E for E-Bikes

I attached a review video for this bike rack(s) for you to check out as well.

  • Best Hitch Mounted Bike Rack to Carry Low Step Through Womens Bike
  • For very low step through frames like your women's bike, an adapter bar is the best option to use, even for platform bike racks like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack # HR1400Z. Take a look at the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar # Y02531. This bar will connect between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, providing a bar that the center frame hook will secure around. It is easily removable, and will only be needed during transport, leaving your the step through...

  • 4 to 6 Bike Carrier for Use in Enclosed 5 x 8 Trailer

There are more costly similar units offered that include locks, but since you have an enclosed trailer to protect your bikes from theft this simple and effective fork-mount option if ideal if you are willing to remove the bikes' front wheels.
