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...

  • Comparison Between Hollywood Racks # HR1400 and Swagman XTC-4 # S64655 Hitch Mounted Bike Racks
  • There are indeed some significant differences between the Hollywood Racks # HR1400 and the Swagman XTC-4, part # S64665. The reviews for the # HR1400 are shown on the product page for the bike rack, which you can see by using the provided link. The rack has been well received by our customers, and the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. The HR1400 is an extremely versatile rack. It can be tilted away from the vehicle while bikes are upon it to allow easier access to the cargo...

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Honda CR-V that Allows Rear Cargo Door to Open
  • The only bike rack solution for your 2018 Honda CR-V that will allow you to open the cargo area with bikes loaded is going to be a hitch option. Since you plan on leaving the rack for an extended period of time this is also a much better option than a trunk rack as trunk racks can scratch painted surfaces if left on for too long. So you'd need a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 76128 so that you can use a swing away bike rack. My favorite bike rack to recommend is the Thule Vertex...

  • Bike Rack to Carry Trike and Two Wheel Bike
  • The only bike rack we have that will accommodate a trike as well as a two wheeled bike is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450R-TRKADP2. This hitch mount bike rack will hold one trike and one two wheel bike. The maximum trike track width this carrier will hold is 36 inches. The weight capacity of this bike rack is 100 pounds. It has a built-in anti-rattle device, with an easy-to-access handle on the front of the carrier. This rack also comes with an 8 foot cable lock to secure bikes...

  • 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.

  • 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 # HR1400-85-FB only has a 45 lb per bike capacity.

  • Can Two Electric Bikes be Carried On Back Of Motorhome
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2, part # HR1450E is designed to be able to carry 2 electric bikes that weigh up to 80-lbs each on the back of your motorhome. This carrier has a tilting feature for easier loading and unloading and it also comes with locks to secure the rack to the hitch and secure the bikes to the carrier. You want to make sure the trailer hitch you have installed and the motorhome have the capacity to handle the weight of the bikes and carrier weight of 65-lbs....

  • Difference Between Hollywood Sport Rider SE2 HR1400 and HR1450
  • The difference between the two part numbers you mentioned is that the part # HR1400 is the 4 bike version of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 and the part # HR1450E is the 2 bike version. Aside from that they share the same designs.

  • Comparing the Hollywood Racks SE4 and Swagman 2+2 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks
  • The Hollywood Racks SE4, # HR1400, 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 there...

  • Bike & Cargo Carrier Options for Use on Winnebago View 24V Class B+ RV
  • It is generally a better idea to use a hitch receiver to support a heavy load. Lightweight ladder-mount RV bike racks are available for up to 2 bikes, such as the Surco 2 Bike Carrier # SP501BR, but if you can use hitch-mount carriers that place the load on the vehicle frame you are better off. Have a look at the safety sticker on your RV hitch. There should be a tongue weight capacity listed on it. This is important to know since that TW figure is the maximum weight load you can use...

  • Will Draw Tite Hitch and Hollywood Rack Sport Rider 4 Fit a 2016 Nissan Rogue SV
  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 75902 is a fit for your 2016 Nissan Rogue SV and would be a great choice. The Hollywood Racks # HR1400 would also be a great choice for a bike rack that would fit and provide you with the ability to carry 2 or 4 bikes at a time. The rack and the hitch would fit perfectly fine together. I attached an install video for the hitch and a review video for the rack.

  • We offer two specialized 2-inch hitch-mount bike carriers designed expressly for adult trikes and both come from the folks at Hollywood Racks. The single carrier you referenced, the Sport Rider Trike Carrier # HR1000R-TRKADP, is ideal for a single trike.

Please see the linked review video. They also...

  • Comparison of the Center Post Hooks for the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 and Swagman XTC-2
  • Both the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450Z and the Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 use a slide or ratcheting hook that secures over the top of the bike cross bar. Both hook styles have padding and both use an incremental adjustment system. Each system minimizes bike movement the manufacturers had a slightly different interpretation of how to implement this feature. The Swagman system is able to be adjusted in a downward position with out releasing the latch. The Hollywood Racks will...

  • 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 # HR1400. 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...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for Electric Pedego Bikes
  • For an electric bike rack that would easily carry your 2 E-bikes that weight 53 lbs a piece that have fenders you would want the Hollywood Racks Bike Rack part # HR1450E as this rack is specifically designed to work on E-bikes like yours and has a 80 lb per bike capacity. This rack secures bikes to the rack by grabbing the frame so your fenders would not interfere at all. Only issue is that you wouldn't be able to access the rear cargo door of your vehicle with the rack installed....

  • 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...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Electric Fat Tire Bikes with Tilt and Swing-Away Features
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Electric Fat Tire Bicycles - 2" Hitch - Tilting # HR1455E is the best rack for your needs. It can handle what most bike racks cannot which is fat tire electric bikes. 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. If you want to add the swing away, the only way to do that is to use the Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches...

  • Overall Length the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Extends
  • On the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE, # HR1400, it measures 43 inches from the face of the trailer hitch receiver to the center of the last wheel hoops on the rack. It is another 3 inches or so to the very end of the rack but the handle bars on the bike will stick out further. I have included links to the instructions and a video for you to view.

  • RV-Rated Hitch Bike Rack for Use with 60-lb Electric Fat Bike That Has 4-Inch-Wide Tires
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Electric Fat Tire Bicycles, part # HR1455E, will fit your electric Fat Bike that has 4-inch-wide tires, however this rack is NOT rated for use on the back of an RV. Bike racks made for use on an RV are specifically designed and rated for that application. This rack is intended for use on a passenger car, which will have a shorter rear-axle-to-hitch distance than a class B motorhome. The longer rear-axle-to-hitch distance on the RV means...

  • 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 # HR1400 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 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 # HR1450R-TRKADP2. This rack will give you the versatility to be able to carry an adult trike as well as other bike styles. I have included...

  • Recommended Bike Carrier for 2018 Ford Focus ST
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11431 is only a confirmed fit for 2013-2018 models. There is not yet a fit from any of our manufacturers for your ST model. The best option for a bike rack is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier for Vehicles w/ Spoilers # HRF2 or the 3 bike # HRF2-3 due to your spoiler. I've attached installation videos to assist. For extra security, I also recommend the following: Thule Passive Security Strap for Trunk Mounted Bike Carriers # TH533 Deadbolt...

  • Can EchoHitch Trailer Hitch and Hollywood Racks Trike Carrier be Used on 2011 Toyota Prius
  • Yes, you can use the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7178 along with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Trike Carrier # HR1450R-TRKADP2 on your 2011 Toyota Prius. When we test fit this hitch on a 2010 Prius we found there was approximately three inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper so you will be able to fold up your new bike rack when it is not in use. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Trike Carrier # HR1450R-TRKADP2 does weigh 83...

We offer two hitch-mount racks that work well with electric bikes and both can be seen on the link provided. There are no trunk-mount racks designed for electric bikes due to their weight,...

  • 4 to 6 Bike Carrier for Use in Enclosed 5 x 8 Trailer
  • For your most cost-effective option, and for one that will not necessarily interfere with other potential uses for your enclosed 5 x 8 trailer, I suggest a bolt-on fork-mount carrier such as Hollywood Racks Truck Bed Bike Carrier # HRT970. 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.

  • 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,...

  • Recommended Hitch for Use with Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack on 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon

Of all the options I suggest Draw-Tite # 75673 for its lower price, easier installation and high 600-lb tongue weight capacity. Installation is shown in the linked video and the hitch comes with all required hardware. The written instructions are linked too and these give you a...
