Expert Reply:

The Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier # CC-275 has a weight capacity of 100 pounds. This consists of the weight of the bikes and the weight of the bike carrier. So I suggest using a bike rack that's reasonably lightweight to give yourself a higher variety of bikes that can be carried. It's also easier to install and remove the rack from the Bike Bunk.

One option is the Kuat Beta # B202-2 which only weighs 12.6 pounds. This is a hanging rack that will fit the 2 inch receicver of the Bike Bunk. It's a durable aluminum that makes it so light.

Another idea is the Let's Go Aero BikeWing # B01311 which can fit 1-1/4 and 2 inch hitch receivers. It weight only 12 pounds. The BikeWing carries the bikes by the wheels using nylon coated cradles.

Since the Kuat is a hanging bike rack some bikes that do not have a straight crosstube, like your typical men's bike has, may not ride level. To solve this issue, the Kuat Ubar Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 can be installed to create that crosstube and give the bikes a way to hang level while traveling.
