5 Bike Hanging Rack Recommendation that Has 45 lb per Bike Capacity


hollywood 5 bike rack model hr9200 it states it handles 35lbs per bike. what if one bike weighs 40lbs. and other bike weighs 35 lbs. would exceed weight as long as i did not over 175lbs?


Expert Reply:

The weight capacity per bike for bike racks like the Hollywood Racks # HR9200 is based on the frame cradles weight capacity. The rest of the bike rack would be fine as long as you didn't exceed 175 lbs, but not the frame cradles.

For a similar bike rack with a higher weight capacity you would want the Curt Bike Rack part # C18065. It has a 225 total capacity which means it has a 45 lb per bike capacity.

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.
