Padded, Ratcheting Hooks

Swagman Traveler XC2 2-Bike Carrier

The XTC-2's mast has a pair of ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes securely by the top tube. And because they move independently, you can carry bikes of different shapes and sizes. The hooks have soft padding that won't scratch or scuff your bike's paint.


Sliding Wheel Hoops

Swagman Traveler XC2 2-Bike Carrier

The rack has wheel hoops that provide a stable base for mounting your bikes. Each hoop has a hand knob that lets you easily slide it along the tray to accommodate your bike's wheelbase. It also includes a rubber strap on each hoop that secures your bike's wheels to the rack. If you need to carry fat bikes, there are hoops (sold separately) that let you carry bikes with tires up to 5" wide.


Folding Design

Swagman Traveler XC2 2-Bike CarrierSwagman Traveler XC2 2-Bike Carrier

You can fold the mast down for easy access to your hatch. Simply pull the pin at the base of the mast and fold it down in either direction. You can also fold the trays up against the mast for storage. Just pull the pins at the junctions where the trays meet the rack, fold the trays up, and reinsert the pins into the provided holes.


Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin and Removable Adapter Sleeve

Adapter Sleeve

The rack includes a threaded hitch pin and a clip that work with a built-in anti-wobble device in the shank to eliminate rattle in the hitch receiver during transport. You can replace the pin and clip with an anti-rattle lock (sold separately) to secure the bike carrier to your vehicle. It also has a removable aluminum sleeve that lets you convert the rack for use in 1-1/4" hitches.

Nice rack and easy to put together. Feels well built. A bit challenging for loading these kind of bikes on there but it worked. The kind of bikes I am using this rack for are not like the usual ones that are previously posted. I plan on using this for my stretch custom beach cruisers also. I will post more pictures once I load those up. I only had time to do my lowrider bikes today.

This is a great bike rack. I have had this for a year now with no problems. I would definitely recommend this bike rack

First-time rack buyer / owner / installer. The rack arrived in a timely fashion, maybe a day or 2 ahead of schedule. It was well packaged.
I’m LOVING this bike rack. It was easy to put together and to mount on my new Honda Passport. Thus far, no squeaks in my 2” receiver. Hardest part of initial set-up is figuring out the best way to position two bikes. Trial & error and some patience.
The directions weren’t clear as to where the 2 left-over screws went. I found the answer in another review and have posted a pic in case others have the same problem (photo with pen pointing at screw). These screws go in the underneath side of both of the folding arms. They appear to keep the wheel wells from sliding off in case in you drive with an empty, un-folded rack, and forgot to tighten down the wheel wells.
The folding arm push / pull pins can be difficult at times. I coated the tips with some lube. That and a little jiggling seems to solve that issue. I guess it’s better for the pins to be snug vs popping right out.
I added a small Master lock to the hitch pin (in lieu of the provided cotter pin) as a theft deterrent. I read that a 3/16 shackle lock will fit into the bike clamp down arms to also act as a deterrent. I had an old 3/16 lock that did snugly fit and appeared to be locked. HOWEVER, I yanked on the lock and it came open as there isn’t quite enough clearance for the shackle to lock. I discovered that longer 3/16 shackle locks are hard to find. Have attached a photo of the lock that actually fits and works (Ace Hardware). One lock on the upper clamp down arm will secure both arms as the lower arm can’t be removed without removing the upper arm.
The clamp down arms appear to be coated to prevent damage to your bike. I’ve tried a simple rag and ultimately settled on pool noodle pieces as a precautionary measure. I CAN NOT open my tailgate (regardless of whether or not the rack is fold up and in the bike carry position). If that’s a concern for you, then spring for the more costly titling version. My back-up camera still functions.


Comments
This bike carrier has held up well. Excellent product vs the cost. I just recently had to upgrade to a LARGER CARRIER as my HARDTAIL PLUS mountain bike tires 2.8 were too fat for this carrier.

This Swagman rack does the job it’s designed for well. It’s installed with a Curt hitch and they are solid together. I see many of these racks attached to fellow bike club members. This seems to be a popular choice. I can open my trunk with a bike loaded closest to the car on my 2012 Sonata. I considered the more expensive choices available, but couldn’t justify spending the extra money. I’m pleased. Thanks etrailer.

I love my bike rack. It’s used all the time and is holding up well.

The Swagman XTC-2 platform bike carrier arrived very quickly from etrailer and in good shape, the actual carrier box is inside another shipper box, which I'm sure helped with its condition. Assembly was relatively quick and painless, even though the instructions could be a little more thorough. Installing the carrier on the back of our Jeep Patriot also was quick, it helps to have an extra ratchet & 3/4" socket laying around for just this purpose.

Installing the bikes takes a little patience and trial and error the first time you try and put them on the carrier. It's easy enough to adjust the wheel holders to fit the wheelbase of your bikes, but for us at least, the challenge was trying to swing the vertical support bar up into position after putting on the first bike (closest to the Jeep). We couldn't angle the bike enough toward the Jeep to have the bar clear the bike. We learned that the easiest way to secure the first bike was to remove the ratcheting frame hooks altogether, put the bike in the carrier, swing up the vertical support bar, put in the pin, and then slide one of the frame hooks down on the bar. The outside bike is much easier because you can set the bike in the carrier at whatever angle you need, not being limited by the back of the vehicle. One thing we did to protect the bike frames was to use some foam pipe insulation as cushion between the frame hook and the frame (see pictures).

Once you get a system for installing the bikes, it is very quick to load/unload them. The rack seems to be well made and doesn't wiggle excessively when traveling. All in all a good product for a good price, would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a platform bike carrier.

Question, we have two Townie comfort bikes, one male the other female. Our problem is attempting to lock down the female bike. I have attempted to slide the locking arm all the way down to the bottom cross bar without success. If I leave it higher it will pinch the chain guard. How do you get the lock slide down to the cross bar on the bottom of the frame. Other than that it is a GREAT rack. Thanks,Ray

Can you access the hatch with the bikes on the rack?
-- comment by: Chris H - 11/01/2015
Depending on the pedal position of the bike closest to the rear lift gate, you can open it a few inches to reach in and get something. This of course depends on far under the back of your vehicle your hitch is located.

I own a 2009 VW GTI 4 door. The fact that I have a 4 door GTI may be significant to the 2 door GTI drivers out there because I tend to need to access my rear hatch less frequently since I just put things in the back seat.

I did not want the standard hanging bike rack because my bike got scratched up badly, my brake cables became loose, and my bike pump cage got broken when using a 4 bike hanging rack with my brother and his family. I also do not like the idea of the weight of my bike resting on top of my bike cables in the hanging bike rack cradles. However, if you are frequently putting different types of bikes on your rack like my brother does, a hanging rack may work better for you. The platform racks need to have the wheel holders adjusted for different bikes. Not hard, but it is a little more cumbersome.

I had been using Yakima roof mounted racks for 17 years on 5 different vehicles...until one of the roof clips popped loose on the interstate and my road bike did a wheelie and dented the roof of my GTI. Could not get my Yakima roof clip to lock in place again after that, so I moved to a hitch mount.

I bought the Curt Hitch #11074 and can be seen in the photos. Not really noticeable, but I think it looks better than the Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch designs.

For platform racks, I looked at several designs with the following criteria in mind.

- Ease of use
- Ability to access the rear hatch
- Extension from bumper

I naturally started with Yakima, but found that their racks seemed overly cumbersome and extended far behind the car. The Thule racks seemed the same, and both brands were over $300. They did offer the ability to tilt the rack up when not in use, but this still blocks my access to the rear hatch.

The Swagman rack has a simple, minimalist design. First is that it is very narrow, only one row of support arms to carry two bikes. Thule and Yakima have two support arms, one for each bike, which causes the rack to extend farther behind the bumper. The Swagman seems plenty beefy to handle two bikes.

The support beams are easy to tilt up and down. Maybe not quite as easy to tilt up as Yakima and Thule, but still pretty easy. But until I watched the eTrailer video before buying this product (WATCH THE VIDEO!), I did not realize that the center upright also folds out of the way if you need access to the rear. This is what sold me. The ratcheting upright supports are easy to use and work as shown in the etrailer video. The rubber straps do their job just fine.

The other manufacturers seem to have an easier method to move the rack out of the way of the rear hatch, but as I mentioned, I have a 4 door GTI, so this was less of a concern for me.

The main selling points were: simple design, easy to use, fit a GTI, upright moves to access hatch, etrailer video, lots of good etrailer customer reviews with pictures, and of course...price.

This was great. Thanks. I just bought am2015 golf and your comments helped me decide in the same configuration

Easy to assemble. This carrier will be used on a 2012 Nissan Sentra using the Draw Tite 24794 hitch. After the installation on that hitch, there is about 2 inches clearance between the rearmost projection of the rear bumper to the frontmost portion of the wheel carrier of the rack. It is easy to put the bikes into the rack. The trunk lid cannot be opened with the bikes mounted on the rack. The rack seems to be stable and doesn't wobble or bounce much.


Comments
I am happy to see that you included a measurement of the width of the tire slots. The newest Mountain bikes that are just coming out are coming out with wider tires. I am looking at a Specialized mountain bike and the tires are 2.3 to 2.5 inches wide. From the pictures posted it appears that this bikes tires should still fit inside the slots?

It was a toss up between this and the cheaper XT. I got this one cuz they said the wheel brackets are better and it was only a little more. I'm glad I got the XTC. Can't compare to the XT since I never saw one. But I like the XTC a lot. Easy to put it together and it fits the 1.25" hitch tight and nothing moves when you drive. I had no idea Sunday when I was driving around with my mountain bike that it was even there. Quality is good. Just HEFT the thing in your hands...it is pretty heavy duty. I appreciate the attention to detail on this. Holds the bike TIGHT. I would drive across the country with this with two bikes no qualms whatsoever.


Comments
Could not be happier! Love the hitch and Swagman. That Swagman is most secure bike rack in the industry. I have travelled thousands of worry free miles with it. Love the dual hitch feature so it fits both size receiver hitches. I would sorely miss it if someone made me give it up. I am thoroughly impressed with long term quality. Thing still looks and operates as new. Very happy.

I looked at a lot of different hitch racks, priced from $100 up to over $500 and for the price the Swagman XTC-2 hit the mark. I've been using it now for a couple of months with absolutely no problems. First trip was 1600 mile round trip from TX to KS and it performed perfectly. Bike is easy off/easy on. Rack is a bit heavy but balanced enough to make it no problem with taking off and on. Etrailer.com was great to work with and rack arrived exactly as stated.


Comments
After a years use, this rack is still performing like new. No issues to report and would still recommend as a good economical choice.

This I was not as happy with. Service was great. Delivery was great but the product QC was off and there is a design flaw in the product (that is most likely fixed by me spending more money, so thats on me.)

Assembly was easy to follow however there was one big problem. The bar coming from the hitch to the rack. The metal mechanisim inside the square tube is cocked (image included) and thus lines up the threads for mounting at an angle and is a perfect setup for cross threading during installation. I managed with some work to get the pieces together (provided hex wrench + vice grips + torque bar). That said I can most likely never disassemble the product again for those threads are going to be toast and unsuable again.

Mounting the rack to hitch was easy.

Adjusting the setup for bike was easy.

Design flaw and place I should spend more money is that once the bike is on the car I can no longer open the hatch to my car. Even if I pull the clamp bar off the rack closests to the hatch. Considering the cost of the rack I can live with this. It just means I cannot drive around with the rack always on the car and I will be pulling it off and only using it when I ride. Never time however I will be spending more to get a rack that either swings away from a hatch or has some sort of a pivot release to gain access into the car.

For the money I spent this is going to work, considering the cost of some of the big name platform racks this is literally a small fraction of their price. So I cannot complain too much but that cross thread issue is not a good one.

I ended up getting a different rack (1up heavy duty). After I installed the Swagman, I was disappointed with how flimsy it was. I called etrailer to discuss because I noticed the Swagman site at the time did not say it was RV approved but etrailers website said it was. The etrailer representative checked with Swagman and they confirmed it was RV approved BUT there was no way I was using it. The quality is not close to the 1up. I never returned the Swagman, it was more trouble than it was worth especially since I had to pay to ship back."


Comments
This bike rack can be safely used on the back of a motorhome. It cannot be used on the back of a fifth wheel, travel trailer, or a flat towed vehicle. For a sturdy bike that can be used on the back of fifth wheel, travel trailer, or a flat towed vehicles I recommend part # KU84FR

I have a 2015 GTI and have been challenged to haul my 29er and additionally a kids 24" bike. I was looking for a rack that was form fitting not extend too far beyond the car to keep the weight closer to the car to assist the Class 1 trailer hitch i mounted.

I ended up going with the Curt C1142 Class 1 trailer hitch for the GTI and the Swagman XTC-2 bike rack. I think it was good solution for price, quality and fit for my requirements. The Rack is not heavy at all. It's very quick to put on and i leave my 29er closer to the car with the outer rails fixed for it. The other rails i put the smaller bikes further on the rack since they would be lighter. There is little movement when driving. On longer distances or with two bikes use the Curt trailer Strap and that helps in movement.

The clearance is what i was really worried about. I needed a rack that would promptly start rising upon exiting the hitch pin. The Swagman rack does just that. It immediately ramps upward to 3" at its peak giving me more clearance to avoid the virgina roadkill. I do wish that etrailer would give the profiles of the bike racks as that would been way easier than countless hours spent on the internet looking at other's pictures for a best fit for my car.

My other choice was the Kuat Transfer 2. it also has a rapid rise giving 6" maximum. However, it also extends about 12" in the back of the car which i was worried the longer run of the rack was going to have clearance issues on some driveways. In the end, the Swagman was $100 less than the Kuat transfer and i think for my purpose it's a better fit for this little car.

The Swagman XTC 2 bike platform carrier was mounted on a 2010 Subaru Outback equipped with a 2" receiver. I will also use the bike carrier on a 2008 Saturn Vue. Ordering from etrailer was straight forward, shipping was fast with continuous texts from etrailer as to shipping status. Impressive. The bike rack works perfect for my wife's extended wheel base-pedal forward Townie bike and my Giant Sequoia trail bike. Bike positioning is important, but not difficult. Retaining hooks ratchet into place easily, and rubber straps secure the wheels. The anti-rattle receiver mount with threaded locking hitch pin works well. No slop there. The only concern we have is the flexing of the receiver bar. With no bikes on board and the carrier arms in the vertical positing, you can watch the minor 'dancing' of the vertical members. Put 2 bikes on the carrier and you can see a little more wobble of the bikes. I suspect the receiver arm of the carrier needs to be sturdier to eliminate this movement. When you read the warranty, you will notice Swagman will void the warranty if the bikes are carried on a 5th wheel trailer or on a vehicle that is taken off road. That tells me they know the receiver arm needs beefing up. Oh well, it works for my interstate transport. I would recommend this carrier for normal day to day transport of 2 bikes.

I bought this bike rack to transport our two bikes. We have Trek Pure's. Once male, one female. The rack went together nicely. It fit very snug in the 2" receiver hitch and tightened down very well with the included hardware. Once assembled, I did have to add and remove the bikes several times to get them the way I wanted them so both frame locks would lock properly. My OCD probably kicked in a little demanding perfection. With everything locked in place, the bikes are very solidly in place within the rack. They don't move whatsoever. After loading the bikes, we took the car around the block. There was some bounce, but that's to be expected. All hardware remained tight after our test ride. I'm confident this bike rack is solid. We will definitely get our monies worth from this purchase.

Just got the platform rack yesterday. After fast shipping at no charge. I put it on today. I must recommend putting it on your vehicle before you set out to ride. It takes a little time to make adjustments or at least in my case it did. Have to maneuver different things try putting bikes on in various positions so that brackets will fit snugly. It took me about two hours to be satisfied. My wife's is a ladies style, and it was presenting a problem with bracket due to the chain guard getting in the way. Then I switched them around and then the bracket would not go down on mine.
Perhaps you wont, have these issues. Depending on the style and make of your bikes.
I will be going out tomorrow and i may leave a follow up comment after driving to location.
I did buy a little lock for the hitch bolt. And I am going to buy locks for the brackets at the discount store. The suite case type locks work well.

Ordered the Swagman XTC2 and a receiver hitch from etrailer earlier this week. Paid for 2 day shipping, and received it THE DAY AFTER I ORDERED IT! Can't ask for any more than that. Completed hitch installation today, and then assembled and mounted the XTC2. It slid right into my 1.25 hitch, and the included rattle-proof hitch pin cinched things down very nicely!

The wheel rack trays are fairly easy to adjust: I just parked my bike behind it, eyeballed about where the trays needed to be to fit the tires, slid them into place, then plopped the bike in. A couple minor adjustments to the racks, and they were ready to cinch down. My wife's bike went on the outside slot. With the dropping frame tube, I had to shift the trays for her bike to the left a bit so the frame clamp hit at the seat riser. Again this was an easy eyeball placement and adjustment, but proper placement results in the bike being shifted to the left a bit. The front tire protrudes about 4" beyond the side of the car, and I'll probably buy one of those bar extensions to remedy this.

Took the bikes out this afternoon, and drove about 4 miles to a nearby park trail. The rack didn't sway much at all through turns, and shaking was pretty minimum going over bumps. I've only used it once so far, but I already love the ease of use! I I have a 2017 Kia Soul, and the vertical rear hatch made a hitch mounted rack the obvious choice. I loved how etrailer's info and user reviews made part/model selection a no-brainer. Why would anybody shop elsewhere? Thanks etrailer!




by:

I LOVE this bike rack! It was easy to assemble and is made of top quality materials. The adjustable top hooks are perfect for securing my women's frame mountain bike. E trailer received and shipped my order within 24 hours! I received my bike rack within three business days and e trailer reached out to me the same day my shipment arrived to ensure I was a satisfied customer!




by:

The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because I am a petite senior female and have difficulty lifting my bicycle up to the platform. I tried the technique suggested by customer help, but didn’t improve much.
It is a very good quality bike rack otherwise! I would recommend for most people!




by:

Nice, quality bike rack. Bolts tend to loosen, so keep an eye on them. Rack wobbles a bit, so wish I had bought the 2 inch receiver model instead.


Comments
Working ok, but one strap has cracked and the bolts holding the cross piece to the hitch bar cant be tightened enough to stop the hitch from swaying. Wish I had bought the sturdier 2 inch receiver model.

The Swagman XTC-2 2 bike rack has worked out GREAT on our 2009 Smart ForTwo! Of all the bike racks we have purchased in the past, this one is the best. It can accomodate any type of bike from a standard diamond frame to a recumbent. It is easy to place a women's bike on there too with the sliding stabilizer hooks that hold the bikes down. The straps on the tire mounts along with the fasteners keep the bikes from any movement. Thumbs up!! BTW, the hitch also came from etrailer.com!


Comments
This has been the best bike rack purchased yet! I like the way it is adjustable to any size bike and that it folds up when not in use on the car. No complaints here!

The Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack performed well with my first use of it. Easy to assemble and well-built. Loading my bike onto the rack was easy and quick. The load of the bike rests on the tire cradles (a feature I specifically wanted in a bike rack) and the rubber securing straps for the bike tires are hefty. The top-slide securing-hook (which descends onto the bike frame) is constructed very well and does the job. With the bike loaded and secured, I drove on surface streets and an area freeway in an urban environment. Everything worked as advertised, and I'm thus far pleased with my purchase of the Swagman XTC2.




by:

I love this rack! Very sturdy and you can have it a single bike rack if so desired, which I do usually only haul one bike. I was worried the gap between the vehicle and bike would be too close but that worry was short lived. I love the ratcheting top clamp, firmly holds down the bike. Adjustability of the wheel chocks is super, I worried about my 29 inch wheels fitting but again, no worries, fit's perfectly with the adjustable sliding chocks. Simply the best rack I've owned.

Super! Love my rack

This bike rack worked perfectly! Very easy installation and set-up. We have a CRV and were taking the front tires off of each mine and my husband's mountain bikes in order to transport them in the vehicle. Now we don't need to remove any tires and the bikes are sturdy and secure on this rack. We have the 29.5 plus sized tires and they fit just fine. Took it on a 3.5 hour trip on interstates and highways and experienced no issues. Great product, highly recommended.

Great! Still love it!

This bike rack is fantastic. Easy to install and quick on on and off with bikes. The only thing is you can’t put a locking pin thru bar. But I tighten the mounting bolt real tight. You need a socket wrench to get it off.

It is fantastic! Easy to load bikes and very sturdy. I’m currently on vacation with bikes at the beach

Shipping from etrailer was fast....as usual.
Assembly
and installation took less than 30 minutes including detwrini g best way to mount bikes.
The rack itself appears well constructed and holds the bikes securely.
I did add a piece of "noodle foam" as additional protection for the paint based on concerns expressed in other reviews.
I'll be ordering additional wheel straps shortly since my 2 year old Lab just ate one off the rack while writing this review......terrible 2s' I guess

I purchased the Swagman two-bike carrier, the long version, for carrying my recumbent bicycle. In the majority, the carrier works well, but I have an issue that makes the carrier almost unusable and a pain in the neck.

I do like that my Tour Easy long wheelbase recumbent bike fits, although I have to use a small wheel to keep it from sticking out too far on the sides. I used a shim at the hitch attachment to try to help with movement. I also purchased straps to attach to the car to help prevent sway. I do feel that my bike is safe when mounted on the rack. The bike will not fit inside my current vehicle and the rack is the only way I can carry it. This rack is good value for the money. It was easy to set the rack up to fit the bike and I feel confident that the bike is safe.

I did put some reflective tape on the rack as people who walked close to my car barked their shins on it and I heard a man comment that the thing should be folded up, which is not possible. I believe the tape helped and I haven't hit my shins.

The issue I have that is quite problematic is that the pins that have to be removed and replaced in order to stand the center support upright and lay it back down are not durable or are even defective. Before I could use the rack, I had to get one replaced. etrailer was not able to provide the replacement part, but did help me contact the manufacturer.

The second time I used the rack I almost could not remove one of the pins. The button was stuck and I could not sink it back in to remove it. Finally, after about 45 minutes, I was able to remove it. It is tethered to the rack and I left it hanging. Fortunately, I had another pin that fit and was able to use the rack.

I have no idea why these pins are an issue. I have never had a problem with them on other devices, even the ones that the buttons can be a little hard to push in. I hope that a pin failure doesn't happen at a critical time. I have tried to think of an alternative to the pins but have not come up with anything yet that I would feel safe entrusting my bike to. I am going to look into pins that do not have a button to see if that would be easier to use. In the photo, you can see the three pins. They have all given me fits, but it is the center one that is critical to use of the rack.

  • Are Included Washers with Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack Used
    The washers aren't mentioned in the instructions (you aren't the first to notice this), but you do want to use them otherwise the rack will wobble quite a bit. We haven't really seen issues with the screws not wanting to tighten all the way. I would make sure you have everything as square as possible, that the screws aren't cross-threaded, and then gently tighten the screws. If there is resistance back the screw off after pushing past the resistance and then go further repeating that till...

  • Can Shank On Swagman XTC-2 Bike Carrier Be Installed Upside Down
    I called my contact at Swagman and asked about the XTC-2 Platform Rack, part # S64670. They told me the shank can be turned upside down in the carrier but since it was designed to provide a rise for the bike carrier it would void the warranty.

  • Would Swagman XTC2 S64670 Fit Hitch of 2015 Toyota Avalon
    The Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 that you referenced would be a great fit for a hitch in a 1-1/4 inch hitch like yours. We don't put our bike racks in our vehicle fit guides though so I apologize for any confusion on whether or not this would fit your vehicle.

  • Will Swagman XTC-2 Bike Carrier Interfere With Topper Opening On 2017 Toyota Tacoma
    Since the Swagman XTC-2 2-Bike Platform Rack, part # S64670 is a fixed rack it will interfere with the opening of the tailgate on your 2017 Tacoma, but when empty and the center mast folded down you would be able to open the topper hatch with no problem. I have attached a photo that shows what the carrier looks like when empty with the center mast folded down.

  • Would Hitch Bike Rack Cause Vehicle to Have Lower Fuel Mileage
    You wouldn't see any noticeable decrease in fuel mileage with the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 installed in your hitch. It only weighs 33 lbs which is most likely about the same as the weight of the Curt hitch you installed. We have yet to hear about a hitch or hitch bike rack causing a vehicle to have lowered fuel mileage.

  • Will the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Rack part # S64670 Carry a Full Suspension Mountain Bike
    The maximum wheelbase bike that can fit on the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Rack part # S64670 is 66 inches, and the weight capacity for the rack is 35 lbs per bike. As long as your fully suspended mountain bike fits those two criteria it should work very well on this rack. I attached a picture of this rack being used with a fully suspended bike like yours for you to check out as well. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Swagman XTC-2 2-Bike Platform Rack Fit a 2005 Toyota RAV4 and Will Rear Door Open Fully
    The Swagman XTC-2 platform bike rack # S64670 is compatible with 1-1/4 and 2-inch trailer hitch receivers, but to determine if the rear door will clear, you will want to do some measuring. The rise in the shank on the Swagman XTC-2 is 3-inches, and from the top edge of the shank to the top edge of the bike rack where the arms will fold down is 4 inches. As a result, measuring up from the top of your trailer hitch receiver 7 inches will tell you if you have enough clearance or not. I...

  • Will a Childrens Bike Fit a Platform Style Hitch Bike Rack
    It's possible. I recommend looking at the Swagman XTC-2 bike platform carrier # S64670 because the wheel hoops are adjustable in and out to fit the length and it often works great with children's bikes. It will also fit 1-1/4 and 2-inch trailer hitches and accommodate wheels up to 2-1/2 inches wide. Take a look at one of our customers pictures with their kids bike. I also included a informative article and video review of each bike rack I mentioned.

  • Does the Swagman XTC Bike Carrier Hitch Pin Fit 2 Inch Trailer Hitches
    The Swagman XTC bike carrier # S64670 uses a threaded hitch bolt, not a pin, and it does work perfectly with 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitches. I have included a link to a video showing the hitch being installed on a vehicle with a 2 inch hitch for you.

  • How Many Bikes Can Be Transported with a Class I Hitch
    The hitch manufacturers we carry list that with a Class I hitch you can only carry a max of 2 bikes. Like you stated, it's a combination of the additional weight of the additional bikes and the added leverage that weight puts on the hitch since it moved out much further. It may not seem like adding an additional lightweight bike would make a difference, but leverage is a powerful way to apply force. We realize that people are going to do whatever it is they want with their hitches and...

  • How to Determine if Townie Bikes Could Be Carried on Swagman XT-C Bike Rack on 2010 Toyota Prius
    The biggest factor you will need to know in order for you to determine if you could transport your two Electra Townie bikes is the weight and wheelbases of the bikes. On Class I hitches you will not want to exceed tongue weight of 200 lbs. The Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 that you referenced cannot carry bikes that weigh more than 35 lbs or have wheelbases longer than 66 inches. If your Townie bikes weigh less than that and has a smaller wheelbase this bike rack should work well for you. If...

  • Is it Possible to Transport 2 Bikes with a Swagman XTC-2 on the Front Hitch of a 2011 Ford F250
    You will need to consult the local laws and regulations of your area to make sure there are no restrictions on having a bike rack on the front of your vehicle. There are a number of people who have done this without any major problems. As far as visibility goes, that will depend largely on the bikes you plan on carrying. Most likely it would not be too big of an issue considering how tall the front of your vehicle is. The Swagman XTC-2 Rack # S64670 should work very well for you. I attached...

  • What are the Advantages of a Platform Style Bike Rack Over a Hanging Bike Rack
    The main advantages to a platform bike rack would be that the bikes are very easy to load and unload, the bikes are very secure (at the wheels and frame), the bikes will not be touching, you will be less likely to have the cables of your bike rub on the frame of your bike. The main advantage that hanging racks have over platform racks is weight. If you plan on removing the bike rack frequently a hanging bike rack might be a good choice. The Swagman XTC-2 would be a good choice for your...

  • Will the Swagman XTC-2 Platform Style Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2002 Honda CR-V
    You will need to take an important measurement to determine if the Swagman XTC-2, # S64670, will clear the spare tire on your 2002 Honda CR-V. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance required to clear the spare tire. If that distance is less than 9 inches, the rack will clear the spare tire. However, you may find that the bike loaded nearest the vehicle could interfere with the spare. In this case, I do not recommend the use of an extension because it will reduce...

    On the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Carrier, part # S64670, the wheel hoop arms will fold up to the upright center arm into a vertical position for storage. With the upright center arm and the wheel hoop arms in the vertical upright position it will not allow you to open the rear hatch on your 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon. With the wheel hoop arms in the folded down position and the center upright arm folded down against the wheel hoop arms it will allow you to open the rear hatch on your vehicle....

  • Will the Rola NV2 Bike Rack Hold a Bike with Fenders
    The Rola NV2 Bike Rack uses rubber straps to secure the bike tires on the cradles. As long as there is room between the fender of your bike and the tire to feed through the rubber strap, then you will have no problem using a bike with fenders on this bike rack. I do not recommend securing the rubber straps over the fenders as the tension could damage the fenders. If you have fenders that sit close to the tires or fenders that cover the sides of the tire as well as the top, then you may...

  • Will the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Rack Fit a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon and Carry Recumbent Bikes
    The Swagmant XTC-2, # S64670, does indeed fit a Class I trailer hitch like the one on your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon. You will need to determine the wheel base of the recumbent bikes you have to see if this rack can hold them. The XTC-2 can carry a bike with a wheel base up to 66 inches long, measured center to center between the wheels. I have included a picture showing a recumbent bike on this rack for you. I have included links to the instructions and a video review for you to view.

  • Using Swagman XTC2 # S64670 in Front Mount Receiver on 2006 Chevy Silverado
    The angled shank of the Swagman XTC2 # S64670 will raise the platform up by 3 inches from the top of the receiver to the bottom of the platform. When deployed, the wheel trays will measure 8 inches laterally from the hitch pin hole in the shank. To determine if you will have sufficient visibility with the rack installed, add about 4 inches to the height of your bikes, and measure that distance upward from the top of the front receiver. You should also determine if the width of your bikes...

  • Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for 2005 Pontiac G6 for 2 Bikes
    I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class II, part # 36426. When we installed it on a 2008 G6, we found that the distance from the receiver hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the rear bumper was about 6 inches. The Swagman XTC2 you mentioned, part # S64670 has a distance of 8 inches from the hitch pin hole in the shank to the edge of the closest wheel hoop. Since the shank is angled to provide a 3 inch rise, the pedals of your bike should be well above the rear bumper so the...

  • Can a Swagman XTC-2 # 64670 Bike Rack be used on a 2011 Chevy Equinox that is being Flat Towed
    You are correct that the Swagman XTC-2 # 64670 is not recommended for use behind motorhomes, RVs, or 5th wheel trailers. However according to my contacts at Swagman, using this bike rack on your Chevy Equinox while it is being flat towed behind your motorhome is acceptable. My contact explained that the key reason that Swagman does approve the use of this bike rack behind your Equinox, even though it is being flat towed, is that the suspension that is supporting the bike rack is the vehicle...
