Will the Yakima Ridgeback 4 Fit a 2 inch Hitch


Hello. I have a 2inch hitch on my car. It does not have a back stop or anything on the car that would become a back stop. I was reading on how to take measurements to see which rack would be best. I was in contact with a service rep yesterday who said that I should make sure That the rear of the bike rack foot does not extend too far out the hitch. I have a good 4.5inch from the safety pin hole to the end of my hitch. Is that ok for the Yakima Ridgeback 4? Also, from the safety pin hole to the front of the hitch, I have 2. Can I go ahead and purchase? Thank you

The Yakima Ridgeback 4 Bike Rack part # Y02458 that you referenced would work great in the 2 inch hitch you have installed on your vehicle.

I attached a review video for you to check out for this rack as well.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
