Can Bike Rack be Inserted Into Tube Receiver on Carpod Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02


Can you attach a bike rack to the receiver that runs along side this cage/ Thanks

While the tube opening at the front of the Carpod Walled Folding Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02 does closely resemble a hitch receiver, it cannot be used to mount an additional accessory like a bike rack.

For a bike rack and cargo carrier that CAN be used together, I recommend taking a look at the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450Z-85. This unique setup includes both a 2-bike platform rack and a 52-1/2 inch x 15-9/16 inch cargo basket that can attach to it. Either option can also be used as a stand-alone carrier by inserting it directly into the 2 inch trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle. If you want to add a bag to the basket I recommend the Curt # C18210 that features a waterproof construction.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this rack that you can also check out.
