Distance Between Wheel Cradles Front to Back on the Swagman Quad Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack


On the Swagman quad 4-bike platform hitch rack there is picture posted with a few measurements. Can you please tell me what the bike spacing is from center of wheel cradle to center of wheel cradle from bike #1 to #2 to #3 to #4? I am assuming the front pair bike #1 and #2 and rear pair bike #3 and bike #4 have the same spacing but the spacing from bike #3 to bike #4 may be slightly different. I think this would be usual information if you add these 3 measurements under specs. Also you should add them on the picture you already posted a few measurements on with colored arrows. Thank you!

That actually is not a common measurement but I can see how it would be useful. Also, I would add that the bikes when placed on the rack alternate which direction they face so the handle bars (widest part of the bike) will not be right next to each other.

I went out to the warehouse and personally assembled the Swagman Quad, # S64692, to take the measurements. The distance from the center of the first wheel cradle to the second wheel cradle is 10 inches. It is the same between the third and fourth cradles. The distance between the second and third wheel cradles is 9-1/2 inches. I have included a picture for you.
