Expert Answers about Lincoln Hitch Bike Racks


  • Easy to Install and Lightweight Bike Rack Recommendation for 2020 Lincoln Nautilus
  • For what you described wanting from a bike rack the Kuat Beta part # B202-2 is the way to go. This rack is super easy to install and remove as it only weighs 12 lbs and is very easy to load bikes on and off as well. It stores easily too since it folds up pretty small when not in use. Then for a hitch the Draw Tite part # 75234 is a really great option. It's mostly hidden and has best weight capacities. Check out the install video and picture I attached for more info.

  • Comparing the Yakima HoldUp 2 and the Kuat Sherpa 2.0
  • Between the Yakima HoldUp 2, part # Y02443 and the Sherpa 2.0, part # SH22G, I personally like both, however, they are built around different bikes and uses. The Yakima HoldUp is a better rack if you have kids bikes, heavier bikes, or could possibly need a 4 bike carrier in the future. The rack is expandable to carry a total of 4 bikes with part # Y02446, or the two out of the base model. The HoldUp is also able to carry bikes with 14 to 29 inch wheels, covering a wide grouping of family...

  • Recommended Platform Style Bike Rack Convertible Between 2-4 Bikes for 2012 Lincoln MKT
  • When we installed a Class III hitch on a Ford Flex, we found that the distance between the hitch pin hole and the farthest rearward point of the bumper was right about 3 inches. This dimension on your MKT should be similar. This means that the bike rack you choose would need to have a shank whose hitch pin hole to closest portion of the rack dimension is greater than 3 inches. If you don't already have a hitch, I'd recommend the Curt Class III receiver, part # C13110. I've linked to an...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Sun Electric Trike
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Trike Carrier # HR1000Z-R-TRKADP accepts regular trikes, not E-Trikes, but Hollywood Racks actually has a different model for electric trikes. You have a good eye and good taste because Hollywood Racks make great bike racks and many of us in the industry are impressed by the quality of them. The rack you would needs consists of # HLY84FR with trike adapter # HRTRK-ADP. I checked the specs on your trike and it looks like at most it will weigh around 60...

  • How To Carry Four Bikes on a 2016 Lincoln MKZ
  • There is a possibility that you can use the Reese Q-Slot Platform-Style 2 Bike and 4 Bike Rack part # PS63138 with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12091 on your 2016 Lincoln MKZ. However, the adapter you need, Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter part # C45785 will reduce you weight capacity by 50%. Therefore, the total weight of your four bikes cannot exceed 109 lbs. If they do not then you can use the Reese Q-Slot but you will also need the Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap part...

  • Fit of Swagman Semi 2.0 Bike Rack # S64686 on 2013 Lincoln MKX
  • When we installed hitches on a 2013 Lincoln MKX/Ford Edge, we found that the receiver hitch pin hole was recessed under the rear bumper by about 5 inches. This means that in order for the Swagman Semi 2.0 to fit, the distance from the hitch pin hole in the shank to the closest part of the carrier must be greater than 5 inches. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22G is a similar rack that features lightweight aluminum construction, and includes the hitch and cable lock. The shank on the rack is...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2011 Lincoln MKT
  • I have platform-style bike rack options for your 2011 Lincoln MKT, though not with Thule. Your vehicle needs more space to clear the bumper than the Thule racks can offer, so I recommend the Kuat Sherpa, # SH22P, a high-quality rack which offers 7-1/2 inches of space from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier when folded (your vehicle requires at least 6 inches to clear the bumper). The Yakima HoldUp, # Y02443, is another quality option, measuring 7 inches...

  • Best 4-Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Lincoln Navigator
  • I'd recommend the Thule Apex Swing bike rack part # TH9027XT that you referenced as the best 4 bike rack. It's easy to load/unload, is very secure and stable, and unlike most racks out there can swing out and give you complete access to the rear of the vehicle with bikes loaded.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid for Carrying Bike Rack
  • For a trailer hitch that fits your 2014 Lincoln MKZ hybrid we have the Draw Tite part # 24897 as a confirmed fit. It will fit your vehicle easily and work well to carry a bike rack. It's recommended over the Curt that also fits you vehicle as it does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. For a 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...

  • Bike Adapter Bar Recommendation for Reese Eclipse Bike Carrier
  • Yes, there is an adapter that you can use to fit your bike on the Eclipse bike carrier # 63124. I recommend bike adapter bar # 64005. I have linked a video showing how it works. Basically, one end clamps around the handle bar gooseneck and the other end around the seat post. This creates an artificial top frame tube to fit the cradles on the carrier.

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Trek Verve +2 and Lectric XP Electric Bikes
  • The Thule # TH903202 EasyFold bike rack you'd looked at would actually be the perfect choice for your bikes. I've looked up the specs of both your bikes, and both would come in under the 65 lb per bike capacity of the Easy Fold. The only other thing you'd need to do is add the separately available fat bike tire strap, part # TH985101 to handle the thicker tires on the Lectric XP bike. The rack would hold both bikes by either the top tube for the Verve + or the seat post tube for...
