Can the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Be Used Without the Cargo Carrier


Can you use the bike carrier without the Cargo basket?


Expert Reply:

Yes, you can use the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier part # HR1450Z-85 without the cargo carrier attached. In order to do this all you would need to do is remove the pin/clip that holds the two together. I have attached a photo of this pin/clip for you. The cargo carrier can also be taken off the vehicle and used separately.

The great thing about the above rack is that if you ever find yourself needing to carry more bikes instead of the extra cargo space, you can add the 2 Bike Add-On for Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 for 2" Hitches part # HR1475Z. There are also a variety of different adapters that can be used to carry all different kinds of bikes. For example, the Kids Bike Wheel Hoop Adapters for Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack part # HRSW-ADP-2 will allow for kids bikes with wheels smaller than 20" to be carried and the Fat Bike Adapter Kit for Hollywood Racks Sport Rider E-Bike Rack part # HRSPRWH-F-HD will allow for bikes with fat tires up to 5" wide to be carried.

Is there a lockable hitch pin available that can replace the hitch pin that connects the cargo carrier to the bike rack?

Reply from Chris R.

There isn't a locking hitch pin available that's sized appropriately for that connection. If you're worried about theft you could potentially just use a standard cable lock to wrap around the basket and bike rack. Also keep in mind that removing the cargo carrier while the bike rack is loaded would be extremely difficult because of the weight that's put on the shank.
