Expert Answers about Acura Hitch Bike Racks


  • Is Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2 Bike Platform Rack Compatible With Women's Frame Bikes
  • Women's bikes mount to the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2 Bike Platform Rack part # HR200Z easily. The ratchet arm is adjustable so it will lock down onto the slanted frame tube of a step through frame (like on most women's bikes) in the photo I have attached. The Hollywood Racks Trail Rider utilizes the center ratcheting arm so it fits most bike frames so it is a great option. It also comes with the bike and hitch locks to protect your investments. If your bike does not have a top frame...

  • Comparing the Kuat Transfer 2 and RockyMounts MonoRail 2 Bike Racks
  • I am personally a big fan of the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TS02B for a few reasons. The first being that the center portion is open so you can walk right up inside of the rack and place your bikes in the cradles whereas for the RockyMounts MonoRail 2 Bike Platform Rack part # RKY10003 you will have to stop at some point and lift the bike up and over the center section. The other reason I prefer the Kuat Transfer 2 is because it just has a more aesthetically pleasing look...

  • Compatibility of the Thule Apex XT Bike Rack with Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2010 Acura MDX
  • Yes, the Thule Apex XT # TH9025XT will fit and is an excellent choice for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13354 on your 2010 Acura MDX. We actually have a review video of this bike rack on a 2016 Acura MDX that I have linked for you to check out. Please note that if any of your bikes does not have a horizontal cross tube then the Adapter Bar # TH982XT might need to be used to help keep the bike level and promote ground clearance. I have attached a sample review video for this product...

  • Will the Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack Work On a 2019 Acura RDX
  • Yes, the Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack part # TH912XTR will fit your 2019 Acura RDX just fine. It has a tilting feature so you can still access your cargo area with the bike rack attached and it has anti-sway cradles so you don't have to worry about the bikes rocking and hitting the vehicle. If you want to add a lock to the bike rack you can obtain the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device part # THSTL2. If you don't already have a trailer hitch on your Acura RDX, the Draw-Tite...

  • Would Hollywood Racks Destination Bike Rack Fit 2019 Acura MDX and Have Enough Clearance
  • With a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2019 Acura MDX like the Curt # C13146 the Hollywood Racks Destination 4 Bike Platform Rack # HR4000 would fit and work well for you with plenty of clearance. You'd have plenty of clearance to fold the rack up when not in use as well too. I attached an install video for the hitch and a review video for the rack for you to check out for more info as well.

  • Parts for Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack to Make Assembly
  • If you already have one of the wheel assemblies you will need other parts, including the other wheel assembly as well as the spine assembly and tongue assembly, which is packaged together. So you will need both the Front Wheel Assembly for Yakima HoldUp Bike Carriers # 8890280, Rear Wheel Assembly for Yakima HoldUp Bike Carriers # 8890281 and Replacement Spine for Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" Hitches # Y8890278 which says "Spine" but is actually the spine assembly and tongue...

  • E-Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying 2 Blix E-Bikes
  • I looked up the Blix e-bikes and they weigh just under 50 lbs and have a very low crosstube which is common for e-bikes. So the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 is a great bike rack but it does not have the weight capacity you need as it has a 35 lb per bike capacity. So for a similar rack that does have the capacity needed you'd want the part # HLY74FR which has a weight capacity of 80 lbs per bike and was designed for carrying the heavier e-bikes. I attached a review video for more info on...

  • Will Hollywood Racks Destination Bike Rack Work on 2019 Acura MDX With Curt Trailer Hitch
  • I am happy to tell you that the Hollywood Racks Destination 4-Bike Rack # HR4000 is absolutely compatible with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13146 that fits your 2019 Acura MDX. When we test fit the Curt hitch on a 2019 Acura MDX we found that the clearance from the hitch to the bumper was 3 inches. And since the closest part of the Destination from the hitch is 8 inches when folded down and 6 inches when folded up, you have more than enough clearance to use the rack. This is...

  • Does Yakima FourTimer 4-Bike Require Adapter Bar for Womens Bikes
  • The Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Rack # Y02469 may require you to use the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar # Y02531 or Swagman Adapter Bar # 64005 (either will work) for an alternative frame bike because the ratcheting hooks may not be able to grasp the bar if the tubes have a deep drop. If this is not something you want, I recommend a wheel-mounted bike rack, which does not need a tube because the ratcheting hooks grasp your bikes by its tires (this will only work if your bikes...

  • Can Inno INH120 Tire Hold Bike Rack Be Used with Bikes with Fenders
  • Racks of this type depend on having direct contact with the bike tires, and if a fender is in the way the bike won't be secure. According to Inno, it will depend on the style of bike and how far down the wheels the fender goes. On mountain bikes that have the shorter fenders, the # INH120 wheel hoops will be able to make direct contact with the tires and not the fender, so it'll work fine with those kind of bikes. Beach Cruiser type bikes generally have fenders that are longer and would...

  • Compatibility of Giant 20 Inch Bike on Thule Apex 4 Bike Rack
  • Thanks for the photo of your bike. To fit on the Thule Apex 4 # TH9025XT, you will need to use a bike adapter bar like the Swagman # 64005. This creates a top frame rail between the seat post and the handlebars. I've attached a video to assist.

  • Best 4-Bike Bike Rack for Rear Hatch Clearance on a 2014 Acura MDX
  • As long as your bikes don't have fenders then the best option for you is to go with a platform bike rack that secures the bikes by their wheels. This will allow you to tilt the bike rack away for rear hatch access with the bikes still loaded. For your 2014 Acura MDX I recommend going with the Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack # Y02443-2. This is a great bike rack that is made by one of the leading bike rack manufacturers out there. This bike rack includes the tilting feature for rear hatch access...

  • 4 Bike Hanging Rack Recommendation for Smaller Frame Bike 2015 Acura MDX
  • At the price point of the Inno Aero Light part # INH640 you won't find a better value than it. It has the features and ease of use like the more expensive racks but costs less. It also has a very narrow arm width which allows smaller bikes to fit easier without needing a bike adapter bar so in that regard it's your best option as well.

  • Recommended 4-Bike Bike Rack That Can Easily Be Converted To 2-Bike Rack
  • I do have an option for you but the Saris SuperClamp EX 4 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount part # SA4026F cannot be broken down into a 2 bike carrier. There is a Saris SuperClamp 2 bike rack available with part # SA4025F. A good 4-bike Rack option that easily converts to a 2-bike carrier is Thule T2 Classic 4 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches part # TH9044-TH9046. The front 2 bike positions can easily be removed if you only need to carry 2 bikes. It also tilts away for easy...

  • Best Value 2-Bike Platform Bike Rack Recommendation
  • As long as you have a trailer hitch installed on your 2019 Acura RDX the Swagman XC part # S64650 will fit it directly without needing any additional adapters. For this style of bike rack the best value option is the Hollywood Racks Trail part # HR200Z. This rack is overall built better but what really sets it apart is the stability of it in the hitch when on the road...especially in this price range. It is a bit more expensive than the XC but if you are okay with going a little more...

If you look at the attached instructions, you will see the hitch pin, keys, and lock cylinder. If you need to replace that hitch pin lock you can use the Hollywood Racks Threaded Hitch Lock for 2" Hitches # HRLHPT which is a fit.

Since you will be putting on a female, child bike on the rack you will likely need adapter bar # 64005 in order to mount the bike to the rack and to carry it more level.

  • Cable Lock Recommendation for a Kuat Beta 2.0 Bike Rack

Run the cable through the bikes and the safety chain loops on the trailer hitch to deter theft. I have linked a video review of the cable lock for you.

  • Can Hollywood Rack be Used on Dirt Roads?
  • Thanks for the photo, that's quite the road you're traveling there. As for the Hollywood Sport Rider # HR1400Z there is not any specific information as to using it on this type of dirt road and extremely rough terrain is going to be a burden on any bike rack. That said, there are a few steps you can take which will help ease that burden, and there are a few things about the Hollywood which should hep it stand up to using it off-road.

  • Differences Between the Swagman G10 and Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Racks
  • The primary differences between the Swagman G10, part # S64682 and the Chinook, part # S64683 is the overall size and shape of the rack, as well as the bike dimensions that they hold. The Chinook is an overall smaller rack, and at 25 inches, is a little more manageable for garages and other tight situations, and at 6 inches may risk contact of the wheel trays with your vehicle's rear bumper when folded up. The G10 on the other hand sits 13 inches away from the hitch pin when folded...

  • Installing Thule Hitching Post Pro Folding/Tilting 4 Bike Rack # TH934XTR on 2011 Acura MDX
  • The Thule Hitching Post Pro Folding/Tilting 4 Bike Rack # TH934XTR that you referenced easily slips into any 1-1/4-inch or 2-inch hitch receiver. No professional assistance is needed. The Class III hitches offered for your Acura are the larger-capacity 2-inch size that have a substantial 400-lb tongue weight rating (tongue weight is downward force on the hitch) that should be plenty for your rack and 4 loaded bikes. If your MDX does not have a hitch installed you can choose one of those...

  • Is There a 4-Bike Rack That Can Carry E-Bikes

The best option available would be the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Bike Platform Rack part # HR1400Z which has a 50 lb per bike weight capacity or the Thule T2 Pro XTB 4 Bike Platform Rack part # TH9034XT-9036XT which has a 60 lb per bike weight capacity so you'd likely need to remove the battery from one of the e-bikes.

  • Yes, the Hollywood Racks Destination 4 Bike Platform Rack # HR4000 will fit any 2 inch trailer hitch receiver, including the OEM hitch on your 2014 Acura MDX. Based on the photos I was able to find online, it appears your factory hitch isn't recessed behind the bumper very much at all, so you'll have plenty of clearance for the Destination rack to be able to fold up against your MDX when not in use, since the closest part of the rack when folded up sits 6 inches away from the center...

  • Can Womens Bike Be Used On Thule Vertex Bike Rack Without Adapter Bar

You can load a bike with an alternative frame and see how much ground clearance you have. You may find you have plenty of clearance.

  • Can You Carry More Than 2 Bikes Using a Class I Trailer Hitch
  • Yes, that note is accurate. A Class I trailer hitch receiver is limited to only 2 bikes regardless of the amount of weight it's carrying. This is due to the exaggerated force caused by the additional leverage from the bikes being further away from the vehicle. A Class II hitch, which is also 1-1/4 inches, is designed to withstand the added stress but a Class I hitch is not. So when using a bike rack like the Thule Helium Pro, part # TH9043PRO, you're limited to only two bikes in a...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Acura RDX

For that you would want to remove the dealer hitch and then install the Draw Tite part # 75784. With this hitch you could easily carry a 3 bike rack. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform rack (which is normally an unheard of combo). That means it'll be easy to install...

Please keep in mind that you would not be able to install a hitch if your MDX has a full-sized spare tire under the vehicle, though a mini spare tire would allow a hitch to be installed.

The Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B is the next step up to the Sherpa 2.0 in regards to Kuat bike racks and it is compatible with your 48" wheelbase.

And this particular product also provides 5-inches of height rise to improve ground clearance.

  • Can I Tilt My Bikes Away From My 2017 Acura RDX When Using The Inno Vertical Hang 4?
  • The Inno Vertical Hang 4 # INH540 can tilt, but is not designed to tilt with the bikes installed. I have a rack that you will be able to load 4 bikes and tilt it with the bikes installed. The Hollywood Racks Destination 4 Bike Platform Rack # HR4000 is a great choice for what you need. You just need to have a 2" hitch receiver. It's much easier to load than the vertical hang 4 and has more adjustments so it will fit a wider array of bikes. It will fit well on your 2017 Acura RDX. I've...

  • Will The Swagman Current Bike Rack Work With Two 45lb Bikes On My 2020 Acura MDX?
  • The Swagman Current # S64678 is a great choice for both of your bikes because it uses a frame hook and not wheel hooks so the fenders aren't a problem at all. The Current has a weight capacity of 60lbs per bike so you won't have a problem there. Nice thing about the Current is that is has a tilting feature so you can access your 2020 Acura RDX hatch when the bikes are loaded to grab whatever may be back there! I've included a video of me using the Current if you wanted to take a closer look!

  • Will the Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Rack Fit on a 2003 Acura RSX with a Class I Trailer Hitch
  • You can use the Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Rack, # S63365, with a Class I hitch on your 2003 Acura RSX, just keep in mind that you will be limited to carrying two bikes due to the capacity of the hitch. It is not recommended to carry more than 2 bikes at a time on a Class I hitch because of the additional leverage that is applied on the hitch by 3 or more bikes mounted further away from the hitch. It is similar to adding a pipe on the end of a wrench to gain additional torque to loosen...

  • Can Thule EasyFold XT Carry 60 lb Bikes on a 2019 Acura RDX with Class I Hitch
  • The good news is that the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 can easily carry both of your 60 lb E-Bikes since it has a weight rating of 65 lbs per bike. The bad news is that if 60 lbs what you're left with after taking the battery off then you'll actually be overloading your vehicle weight rating by about 15 lbs. If the 60 lbs you mentioned is with the battery still on each bike then you should be able to remove it which will put you right around the 150 lb mark which I got from your owner's...

  • Do Trailer Hitches or Bike Racks have Threaded Shanks For Removing Movement
  • Trailer hitches do not have threads in them. What did have threads was your Thule bike rack as that's been their standard anti-rattle device for their bike racks for several years. When you replace the bike rack that was damaged it's shank will have threads. The Thule T2 part # TH9044 is a great example of a bike rack that has a threaded shank. If you check out the review video for the rack that I attached you'll see how that device is used and demonstrated.

This rack is designed for electric bikes which are pretty heavy so they didn't make it super long as that would put leverage on the hitch, or allow it to tilt too far as that would make it hard to lift back into place.

  • While you could use a Class I compatible 4 bike rack like # TH9025XT in the hitch on your 2005 Acura TL, you would be limited to 2 bikes when using the rack. This is because vehicles with Class I hitches can be damaged by the weight of the bikes being placed to far away from the back of the vehicle. The amount of torque that is applied to the hitch and vehicle frame is increased substantially as weight is added farther away form the vehicle. The only benefit would then be the ability to...
