Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack to Carry Up to 4 Bikes on a Lexus NX200t


I have the trailer hitch. I want to carry 3 or 4 bikes. Which rack do you recommend


Expert Reply:

Verify the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch recevier and your Lexus NX200t to make sure you can handle the weight of a fully loaded bike rack. You definitely need a 2 inch Class III hitch on the Lexus which are available so hopefully you already have one.

For a rack I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base, part # BA22B-BA02B. It's a platform rack that can carry up to 4 bikes that weigh 40 pounds each. If you're only carrying 2 bikes they can weigh up to 60 pounds each. It uses ratcheting hooks that hold the bikes by the wheels so it's good for a variety of different bike styles. It also includes locks for the bikes and for the rack itself.

Of any of the bikes you're carrying bikes with wheels that are 20 to 24 inches you also need the adapter # 016-025-00-00. Or if you have any fat bikes use # APBK.
