Expert Answers about Land Rover Hitch Bike Racks


  • Recommended Hitch and Platform Bike Carrier to Use on 2014 Land Rover Evoque
  • I'll start off by saying that the first thing you need is a hitch receiver on your vehicle in order to carry the bike rack. I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13128 which will provide you with a durable hitch to carry any potential bike rack. This hitch has a 2" receiver on it which will provide you with a greater variety of hitch mounted accessories that can be used. When it comes to a bike rack, your choice of going with a platform rack is a good start considering...

  • Can Saris Freedom Bike Rack Fit with Trek Verve E-Bikes
  • From what I can see I believe the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4412B will be compatible with your two Trek Verve E-Bikes as long as they are the Verve+ 2. Since you'll need to remove the battery during transport I believe the rubber cradles will fit with that middle frame section, but since the battery for the Verve+ 3 is integrated into the frame I kind of doubt the cradles will fit even if you remove the battery. If you do have the Verve+ 3 bikes then the Hollywood Racks...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Carbon Frame and Wheel Bike for More than 2 Bikes
  • You are correct and you need a bike rack that only touches the tires and not a frame mount. So for a lower priced option that can carry up to 4 bikes the best option is the Swagman Semi 4.0 part # S64698-99. I know neither of these racks are inexpensive, but this style of rack is considered to be the premiere style and costs the most to make properly. Also when you need to expand past two bikes this rack also gets quite a bit more expensive unlike hanging style racks.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Land Rover Evoque
  • To be perfectly honest, some vehicles are just not ideal for trunk mounted bike racks. If the bumper's are softer than most and the bike rack gets overloaded or you hit a large bump too fast the bumper can get damaged. Whenever possible we try to get people to use hitch mounted bike racks. This way nothing touches the vehicle and the risk of potential damage isn't there. Also, this a hitch will give you further flexibility in the future if you ever decide to do any towing or use a different...

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle for Swagman XC Bike Rack
  • The Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style for 1-1/4" and 2" Trailer Hitches # S64650 does not require a specific wrench or socket. It does use a 3/4 inch wrench or socket and you will want to move the shank up and down as you tighten the bolt. If you want a wrench and socket you can use the Ratchet with 3/4" Socket for Anti-Rattle Hitch Bolts # PTW38106-24. You may want to use the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable for Swagman Bike Racks w/ 1-1/4" & Combo Shanks - 7' # S64031 to further...

  • Bike Rack Solution for 2003 Land Rover Discovery II
  • The Surco part # BT300 just hasn't been test fit on your vehicle. There's a chance the rack would fit, but in reality we can't say for certain. Best solution I can recommend is a hitch bike rack with plenty of clearance between the hitch pin hole and the bike rail like the Thule # TH9044. You'd need a hitch too if your vehicle doesn't have one, the Curt part # 13455 is a confirmed fit and would work well.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Sondors Original Fat Bike
  • I looked up the weight of your Sondors original fat tire e-bike and found that it weighs in at 67 lbs so for a higher capacity bike rack that fits fat tires the best solution is Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HLY84FR which has an 80 lb capacity and has wheel hoops that can fit tire widths up to 5 inches.

  • Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack Compatibility with 2017 Range Rover Discovery
  • The Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack # MPG2127 is a fit for a 2017 Range Rover Discovery. There is a 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole on the shank to the upright mast on this bike rack. This will work well with the factory trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle. You may also want to add a bike adapter bar like # 64005 for any step through frame bikes and then use Softride # SR18679 to keep your front wheels from hitting the car or each other.

  • Determining Fit of Thule T2 Pro XTB 4 Bike Rack TH9034XT-9036XT on 2013 Range Rover Sport
  • One quick measurement will give you what you need to know to confirm a good fit for any hitch-mounted bike rack, such as the rather awesome Thule T2 Pro XTB 4 Bike Platform Rack # TH9034XT-9036XT. On your 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Sport just measure from its hitch pin hole rearward to the rear-most part of the vehicle, probably the back edge of the bumper cover. The linked article illustrates this simple process. The XTB's 2-inch shank will give you 7-inches of clearance when the...

  • Best Wheel Mount Swinging Bike Rack for a 2011 Land Rover Range Rover
  • I have the perfect bike rack for you. The RockyMounts BackStage Platform Rack part # RKY10002 can carry 2 bikes, secures the bikes by the wheels therefore will not damage your carbon fiber frame, and has the swing away feature that will allow access to your rear cargo area without removing the bikes from the rack. This is the only platform style bike rack we offer that meets all three of your criteria. Another great thing about this rack is that it has locks for both the bikes and the rack. I...

  • How to Determine if Kuat NV Bike Rack is Going to Clear Rear Bumper of Vehicle Folded Up
  • As long as you have 7 inches from the center of the hitch pin on your 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport to the outside edge of your rear bumper the Kuat NV # NV22G would fit and have clearance to fold up. Judging by what install pictures look like for the hitches for your vehicle like the Curt # C13243 I don't think you'd have an issue, but since I don't know what hitch you have your best option will be to measure to find out for sure.

  • Will Kuat Transfer 2-Bike Rack Fit 2018 Land Rover Ranger Rover Sport
  • While we have not test fit the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack # TS02G (Gray) or # TS02B (Black) on a 2018 Land Rover Ranger Rover Sport with a 2" hitch such as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13243, you can find out very easily by taking a quick measurement. This bike rack measures 7-1/2" from the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when it is folded down (which means it is ready to use) and 5" to the closest part of the rack when it is folded up. All you need to do...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Rack That Will Clear Rear Hatch on 2012 Land Rover Range Rover
  • The Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Rack # Y02469 referenced in your question will fit with your 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport as long as it has a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver installed. As you mentioned, this 4-bike rack can be tilted down and away from the vehicle with the bikes still loaded. Whether or not you will have any interference when opening the rear hatch on your Range Rover will really depend on the type/size of bikes you will have loaded and the position of the hitch...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender and Anti-Rattle Compatible with Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack
  • The Thule EasyFold XT 2 E-Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 is 8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright bar of the carrier. My recommendation for your is to use the Hitch Extender For 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver 7" # HE06 or the 8" Curt Extender # C45791 with an Brophy Stabilizer Clamp and U-Bolt for 2" Hitch Receiver - Black Powder Coated Steel # RSCP to help reduce any sway in the adapter. You may also want to use etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Flush Design for...

  • Hitch and 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • The first thing you will need is a hitch, for that I would recommend the Curt Hitch part # 13456. This is a 2 inch hitch that would do a great job carrying a 4 bike rack. Once the hitch is installed you would be able to install the Thule Hitching Post Bike rack part # TH934XTR and it would work well for you to carry up to 4 bikes. I attached a review video for you to check out. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry E-Bikes that Weigh 52 Lbs
  • We have bike racks that are rated for carrying the weight of your e-bikes, but the Rola TX-102 2-Bike Rack # 59400 does not have enough capacity for that. None of the hanging style racks like this have the capacity so you'd need to look into a platform rack like the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4412B which has a 60 lb per bike capacity and would work well for you. Platform racks hold the bikes a bit more securely too. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check...

  • Hitch Adapter to fit 1-1/4-Inch Hitch to Allow Use of 2-Inch Thule Hitch Bike Rack
  • The aftermarket hitches we offer for your 2013 Land Rover Evoque are all the 2-inch Class III variety like Curt # C13128 but it sounds like your OEM hitch is a 1-1/4-inch Class II and that's why you need a hitch adapter to let you use your 2-inch Thule bike rack. We offer adapter # HT5R that will fit your 1-1/4-inch hitch and give you the 2-inch receiver opening you need for your Thule bike rack. This adapter also gives you 5-inches of rise which means better ground clearance, which...

  • Will the Yakima FullTilt Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2012 Land Rover Evoque
  • First, if you haven't settled on a trailer hitch yet, you can use # C13128 for your 2012 Land Rover Evoque. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. I have linked the installation instructions for you. With this or another trailer hitch, Class II or greater, installed the Yakima FullTilt, # Y02462, will fit. Based on the location of the receiver on the Curt hitch there should be plenty of clearance between the back of the bike rack and the vehicle. If you will be...
