Will a Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style hold a 650bx3 or 27.5x3 wheel size bike?


Hi. I have a 6fattie bike, wheel size 650bx3 or 27.5x3. Will a Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style hold that size? Thank you.

If your tires measure 3-1/2 inches wide or less, then the Swageman XC 2-Bike Platform Bike Rack, # S64650, will work with your bikes. The Swagman can carry up two bikes and and has a weight capacity of 70lbs ( 35lbs per bike).

This bike rack is a frame mount bike rack the uses telescoping hooks to mount your bikes to the rack. If you have special frame bikes, like carbon fiber, then you will want to look at wheel mount bike racks.

I recommend the Curt # C18085, for a wheel mount bike rack. Your bike will rest and mount on the wheel cradles of the BikeWing, leaving you frame free of contact with the bike rack. The wheel mounts will fit your 3 inch tires of your bike. It has a slightly larger weight capacity at 90lbs and is also has a lower price point than the Swagman XC bike rack.

I also recommend purchasing a bike cable lock like # C23666. The cable lock will further secure the bikes to your bike rack and deter theft.

I have linked a few review videos on both bike rack for you to view.
