Expert Answers about Lexus Hitch Bike Racks


  • Comparing Hollywood Racks Destination vs. Swagman XTC 4-Bike Rack
  • The Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack # S64665 and Hollywood Racks Destination 4-Bike Rack # HR4000 are two of the best values in regards to 4-bike racks, and when taking everything into consideration I highly recommend the Destination # HR4000. There are a number of reasons for this, starting with the fact that the Destination is going to be easier to load your bikes on because of its large and curved wheel trays compared to the hoops of the XTC-4 that make you plop the bikes in just right....

  • Availability of Kuat Platform Bike Rack to Allow Rear Door to Swing Open on 2018 Lexus LX 570
  • I do have a great solution for you, however we don't have a platform-style bike rack (Kuat or otherwise) that can sit low enough to avoid interference with the swinging rear door on your 2018 Lexus LX 570. All of the Kuat platform carriers will sit about 10 to 12 inches above the center of the hitch pin hole, whether down for use or tilted back for rear cargo access. For your Lexus LX 570 I think your best option will be with the Kuat NV 2.0 Platform Rack # NV22G you were looking at...

  • How to Determine Wheelbase of Bike and Bike Rack Option for Long Wheelbase
  • Measuring the wheelbase of your bike to determine the correct bike rack for you is pretty simple; all you have to do is measure from the center of one wheel to the center of the other wheel and this is the measurement of your wheelbase. For a 53" wheelbase you will need a bike rack that is designed for recumbent bikes and I recommend the Saris Freedom 2-Bike Platform Rack for Recumbents # SA4412B-R because because it weighs less than 25 lbs it is extremely lightweight but still has...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for E-Bike that Weighs 57 lbs
  • We have bike rack solutions that will work great with your 57 lb E-bike but the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 would not work as it does not have the weight capacity. Each set of wheel hoops on the rack are rated for 35 lbs so what you have would weigh too much. Swagman has the very similar E-Spec part # S94FR which has a capacity of 70 lbs per bike and overall has the same general design. This would be a really great solution. Or if you prefer something easier to load and unload we have...

  • Recommended Bike Rack to Carry 2 Electric Bikes with Alternative Frames and Fenders
  • I do have a recommendation for you but the Kuat NV 2.0, part # NV22G, isn't going to work with your fenders. Wheel mount bike racks rarely work with bikes that have fenders. Instead take a look at the Saris Freedom, part # SA4412B. It has the same 60 pound capacity as the Kuat and hold the bikes by the frame. The cradles that grab the frame are adjustable and can be attached to the bikes at different locations and angles. I've linked a video so you can see how a bike is actually...

  • Is The Inno Vertical Hang 4 # INH540 A Good Option For Hauling A Womens Bike?
  • You could possibly get your wife's LIV Flourish Cruiser on the Inno Vertical Hang 4 # INH540 but I think there is a better option for you. The Thule Apex XT 4 # TH9025XT can carry 4 bikes just like the Inno option, but there is much more bar spread so you won't have to worry about struggling to get the bikes loaded. I've used the Inno option before but I really wasn't a fan of the vertical bars compared to the normal horizontal bars. With The Apex, all you'll need is the Thule Adapter...

  • Can I Use a Hitch Extender With Thule Helium 2 on 2018 Lexus RX 350?
  • Using a hitch extender like # HE6000 will cut your hitch's weight capacity in half which is why we usually don't recommend it. One of our hitches that fits your vehicle is the Draw-Tite Hitch # 75540 and it has a 675 lbs tongue weight. If you use it with a hitch extender, your remaining tongue weight capacity is about 335 lbs. The Thule Helium 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH44VR weighs 43 lbs and has a capacity of 37.5 lbs per bike. 43 lbs plus 70 lbs equals 113lbs which is within your new weight...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation and Hollywood Racks Traveler Fitment on a 2019 Lexus RX 350
  • The Hollywood Racks Traveler 3 # HR6500 will definitely fit on your 2019 Lexus RX 350 and for a trailer hitch I recommend the Curt # C13272 over the Draw-Tite # 75540 simply because we have found that the Curt hitches tend to have a thicker powder coat and better welds which helps them to resist wear and tear a bit better. Attached are review videos for both the bike rack and the hitch for you to check out. A few additional things I do recommend picking up are the lock kit # HRLHPTC...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Elliptigo Bikes
  • I did some research, and found that ElliptiGo offers a modified version of the Hollywood Racks # HR1450Z-R. The rack features a fork mount at the front wheel hoop that will accommodate the bike once the front wheel is removed. We do not offer the rack, but you could purchase a # HR1450Z-R and add one # HR915 for each ElliptiGo bike you wish to carry, and you'd have the same rack (see photo).

  • Does the Rhino Rack RRRBC045 Tilt Away to Allow you to Open the Rear Cargo Hatch on 2020 Lexus GX460
  • While we haven't tested the Rhino Rack # RRRBC045 on the 2020 Lexus GX 460, in most cases you will be able to open the rear tail gate on your vehicle with the rack still attached; it's not recommended that you do this with the bikes on the rack, but as long as they're unloaded it's not an issue.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 1 Carbon Fiber Frame Bike Used in Various Weather Condtions
  • The Thule Helium 1 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Aluminum part # TH64VR is the best option for your carbon fiber bike that may be exposed to various weather conditions. The Thule Helium is a wheel mount bike rack so it holds the bikes by the wheels rather than the delicate bike frames. The bike rack is also aluminum so it can withstand the elements for longer periods of time without rust. However, I do recommend to periodically take the rack out of the hitch (maybe...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Platform Rack That Allows 2012 Lexus GX 460 to Open Rear Door
  • Thank you for all the information, it was very helpful. I went to our demo room to take some measurements of the Swagman XTC-4 # S64665 and based on those would not be able to confirm it would allow a 2012 Lexus GX 460 to open the rear door. If you use the attached photo (which shows the Swagman, but not on a Lexus GX 460) as a reference, you can see that at the highest point, the XTC-4 is going to be roughly 28" above the ground on a 2012 Lexus GX 460. Given a margin of error of roughly...

  • Installation and Securing of Thule Roadway Bike Rack to the Trailer Hitch on a 2008 Lexus RX 350
  • I can help explain how this bike rack will fit into the hitch and secure better for you. First thing to know is that the Thule Roadway Bike Rack # TH912XTR can fit both a 1-1/4 and 2 inch hitch with the use of the included adapter sleeve. With the sleeve on this will give you the 2 inch receiver opening that will fit into the 2 inch Curt Class III hitch # 13530 you were looking at. These two will pair great and the Curt hitch is also confirmed to fit your 2008 Lexus RX 350's frame. The...

  • We can help you select the right 2-inch hitch bike rack for transporting beach cruisers on your 2015 Lexus RX 350. Since your bikes both have fenders and front brake calipers you will need a rack that works with those features. The racks you referenced are great, but for your bikes we have a better solution. For a platform style rack that include locks for the rack itself and your bikes, tilts away from the car for better access, includes an anti-rattle hitch pin for stability and that...

  • Recommended Hitch Lock for Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack
  • Kuat offers two different hitch locks, the # HL1 for the # B202-114 Beta that's designed for the 1-1/4 inch receiver and the # HL2 lock that's designed for the # B202-2 Beta rack that's designed for the 2 inch receiver. If the correct lock is used for the correct rack, no alterations of any kind will be necessary (we don't recommend altering the rack in any way, as it will compromise your warranty protection.)

  • Benefit of Swing-Away Bike Rack Over Tilting Bike Rack for Cargo Access
  • The Thule Apex 4 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches has been discontinued by the manufacturer. The most similar option that I recommend as an alternative is the Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # Y02458. The tilting racks do bring the outermost bike too close to the ground when tilting, so it is not recommended to tilt with bikes in place. If that is a concern you may want to go with the swing away model which will keep the bikes vertical and loaded. I've...

  • Carrying a Pedego Trike on a 2017 Lexus RX 350
  • The Hollywood Rack Sport Rider is the correct series, and the specific model number you're looking for is the Trike loadout, part # HR1000Z-R-TRKADP . This trike setup allows for a single trike to be hauled behind a vehicle and offers a weighty 100 pound capacity, suitable for the Pedego trike. The Hollywood SR Trike carrier doesn't include any integrated locks, so I recommend adding the Anti-Rattle Hitch and Cable Lock, part # HRLHPTC, as an excellent addition to the rack. If...

  • How Much Clearence Is There When Curt Hitch # C13043 Is Installed With Yakima FullSwing Bike Rack
  • The Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack # Y02465 is 1-1/2" from the hitch pin hole and the back of the shank. I went out to our warehouse to measure how far the ends of the receivers are from the hitch pin holes. The Curt # C13043 measures 2-1/2 inches from the center of the rear mounting holes to the back of the receiver (towards the spare tire). When the FullSwing 4 Bike Rack # Y02465 is inserted inside the Curt # C13043, it will not stick out the back of the hitch. In fact you will have...

  • Comparing the Yakima HoldUp 2 Part # Y02443 with the Kuat Transfer 2 Part # TS02G

Both the Kuat Transfer 2 part # TS02G and the Yakima HoldUp 2 part # Y02443 are excellent bike racks that will work well for you. However, I recommend the Yakima HoldUp as it has a bit more features that will work with your bikes and vehicle better than the Kuat Transfer will. For starters, the HoldUp can carry bikes weighing up to 60 lbs each whereas...

This particular bike rack does include a hitch pin lock to secure it to the vehicle, but just in case you do not have this, you can use the Hollywood Racks Hitch Lock # HRLHP2. For the hitch lock and cable lock kit, you can use # HRLHPC2.

  • Recommended 4 Bike Rack for 2013 Lexus GX460
  • I like to recommend the Saris Freedom 4-bike platform rack, part # SA4414B, because of the large variety of bikes it can carry. It holds the bikes by the frame but since it uses cradles that are independent of each other it accomadates different frame shapes and sizes. I've linked a review video for you to take a look at. The Freedom doesn't come with locks but you can add them using parts # SA3022 and # SA981.

  • Platform Bike Rack that Will Clear Back of 2017 Lexus RX 350 when Loaded
  • When we installed Curt trailer hitch # C13272 on a 2017 Lexus RX 350 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear of the vehicle was indeed 5 inches (see video linked below). The Swagman XC bike rack # S64650 measures approximately 12-1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole to the center of the wheel hoops closest to the vehicle. This means that the bike would likely make contact with the vehicle at some point (more likely at the pedals since the bumper sticks out...

  • Bike Rack Options for a 45 lb Electric Bike
  • I do have some bike rack options that will allow you to carry a 45 lb bike. Unfortunately the vast majority of hanging style bike racks (which tend to be lighter than platform style) cannot support the weight of a 45 lb bike. The Kuat Beta # B202-114 can carry 2 bikes that weigh up to 80 lbs combined (40 lbs per bike). If you remove the battery on your electric bike then it might be light enough for the Beta to carry. Saris has their Freedom # SA4412B 2 bike platform rack which is...

The mast is really well designed with the folding and tilt features with quick-release levers.

  • Will Rear Hatch of 2015 Lexus RX 350 Open with Thule T2 Pro XTB Installed
  • We haven't had the chance to test the Thule T2 Pro XTB # TH9034XT on a 2015 Lexus RX 350 but we have tested on a 2017. If you watch the linked video you'll see that the hatch has plenty of room on the 2017 model. We've test fit the T2 Pro XTB on a number of SUV's and the rear hatch clears quite easily on most of them. I've also linked a video of the rack on an Acura RDX which has a hatch that appears to reach further out from the vehicle than the 2017 RX 350 does.

  • Comparing Swagman XTC-2 and Trailhead 2 Hitch Bike Racks
  • The main difference between the Swagman XTC-2 2-bike platform rack # S64670 and the Trailhead 2-bike hanging rack # S63360 is the way the bikes load. With a platform rack you don't have to lift the bikes as high up to load them. The other main difference is that the XTC-2 gives you a few more inches of rack clearance from the hitch pin hole, 15-inches instead of 11-inches for the Trailhead. Both racks fit Class 1, 2 and 3 hitches and have 3-inches of rise in the shank for increased...

The Swagman # S64650-EXT will accommodate bikes with a wheel base of up to 66 inches and my research shows that the EZ-Sport recumbent bike has a wheel base of 62 inches.

This is one of the nicest bike racks on the market so I would highly recommend it. This rack comes with hitch and bike locks, anti-sway device to stabilize the rack, and uses wheel mounts that only touch the bike tires to load them so nothing would touch the frame of the bike.

Additionally, because of the way that the rear of the GX 460 opens, the hanging rack will work a little better overall with the rear hatch. For a hanging rack, I recommend Yakima's FullSwing, part # Y02465. This swing-away hanging rack uses ZipStrips to secure the bikes across its two arms, and reduces the amount of...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Lexus IS 250 with Curt Class I Hitch
  • Class I hitches can't be used with Yakima bike racks as they only fit Class II and up hitches. Also Class I hitches can only carry up to two bikes at a time as any more than that puts too much weight and leverage on the hitch which will potentially damage it. So with the Curt hitch part # C11389 that you have you'd need to go with a 2 bike rack that is Class I compatible. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part #...

  • Will Yakima Y02457 RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack Require Adapter Bar for Women's or Mountain Bikes
  • The answer to your question will depend on the actual geometry of your bike's frames. If the women's bike has a step through frame, you would indeed need an adapter bar like # 64005 in order to prevent the bikes from being carried at a sharp angle that would compromise ground clearance or put one of the tires close to the exhaust pipe. If the women's bike has a more standard type frame, given the height of the GX460 you'll most likely get by without one. If the mountain bike has a generally...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Hitch Mount Bike Rack on 2007 Lexus GX 470
  • For a trailer hitch receiver I suggest the Draw-Tite Max-Frame, part # 75155. This hitch is a 2 inch receiver opening Class III that is compatibel with your 2007 Lexus GX 470. I've attached an installation video on a 2004 that might be helpful to you. The best bike rack for you is the RockyMounts BackStage, part # RKY10002. It's a platfrom rack that swings away from the rear of the vehicle giving you complete access to the rear cargo area. It also includes a cable lock to protect...

In order to carry the bikes level and to provide maximum ground clearance, I'd highly recommend an adapter bar like part # 64005 be used. The bike rack doesn't have any built-in locking mechanism, but the clamp that locks the rack on to the ball mount can be locked using a coupler lock like part # e98886. The rack includes a cable that can secure the bikes to the rack...

  • Can the Yakima TwoTimer Bike Rack be Used at the Front of a Truck
  • You could use the Yakima TwoTimer # Y02468 at the front of your truck. But there are a couple of things to keep in mind. The loaded rack can reduce driver visibility, block some of the lights on the front of the truck, and restrict airflow to the motor. If your 5th wheel trailer has a hitch at the bike using a bike rack in it would be the better option provided the bike rack used is rated for use on a trailer. The TwoTimer is not trailer approved but you can use the similar Swagman Dispatch...

  • Recommended Lightweight Bike Rack for 2013 Lexus IS250
  • The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH12B bike rack you looked at is an excellent bike rack that's very easy to use. At around 30 lbs, it's one of the lightest bike racks of its type we offer. Platform bike racks like the Sherpa are favored by many because the bikes typically don't need to be lifted as high for loading as a hanging type bike rack, so loading the bike is easier for somebody with limited upper body strength. If a super-light weight rack is of the utmost importance, Kuat makes a hanging...

  • Fit of Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack on 2015 Lexus RX450h
  • The answer to your question will depend on how far under the rear of the vehicle the hitch is recessed. You can determine this by measuring the distance between the center of the hitch pin hole and the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 can be used on your vehicle as long as this distance isn't greater than 7-1/2 inches. When we installed all three of the available hitches on a RX450, we found that the receiver was recessed under the vehicle by 5 inches....

  • Platform Style Hitch Bike Rack for Bike with Fenders
  • The Yakima SingleSpeed # Y02481 wheel-mount hitch 1-bike rack is better for bikes without fenders, like mountain bikes. Some bikes with very short front fenders can still work but generally a standard size front fender will get in the way of the ratcheting arm. Since this could potentially compromise the security of the bike on the carrier I recommend instead using a frame-mount carrier. We don't have any such 1-bike carriers but we do have 2-bike models that grip the frame rather than...

This should be compatible with your factory 2018 Lexus RX 350, and you can verify by measuring from the center of your hitch pin hole to the furthest point of the bumper.

A bike adapter bar is specifically designed to help you carry bikes that have odd or smaller shaped frames safely on a bike rack. The adapter bar will attach to your bikes seat post and the handle bar post. I have attached a video showing how this adapter bar works for you to check out.
