Will the Malone Pilot 2 Bike Platform Rack Work with Fat Tire Bikes


Im hauling a mountain bike with pretty wide tires, not fat tires but pretty big. The channels where front and rear tire fit are so narrow that the tire sits high in the channel, thus the straps are too short to reach up and over and into the ratchet. Would be nice to offer longer straps or wider channels with your product to accommodate these issues. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We do have several bike racks that are compatible with bikes that have a large tire but the Malone Pilot 2 Bike Platform Rack part # MPG2133 is not one of them as it is limited to a 2-1/2" wide tire per the description on the web page and Malone does not offer a fat tire adapter kit for it.

If you can tell me the year, make, and model of your tow vehicle I would be glad to see if we have a better option for you.
