  • Best Bike Rack for E-Bikes with Fenders Step Through Frame and 1-1/4 inch Hitch

  • Will Bike Rack Blocking View of License Plate Cause Issue with Thule DoubleTrack
  • What's interesting is that most states have similar laws about the license plate not being obstructed which is what a bike rack will at least partially do, but we've yet to hear about a situation where a police officer gave someone a hard time for their bike rack. The Thule Doubletrack # TH990XT that you referenced would block the view of the plate to a certain extent but most likely would not get you in trouble.

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2009 Scion xD

The most popular hitch bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review...

We offer hitches that are designed to fit your xB, but they are either a Class l or Class ll. The hitches we offer that are a fit for your vehicle have 1-1/4 inch receiver openings. Class l hitches are designed to only be able to carry 2 bikes on a carrier. A Class ll hitch will allow you to use...

  • Will Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack Fit 1-1/4 inch Hitch on 2006 Scion XB
  • The Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 will fit your Draw-Tite Invisi-Hitch 1-1/4 inch that you have installed on your 2006 Scion xB if you already have the discontinued adapter. If you do not, then you will need to replace your hitch with # C11487. Some of the Townie Electra cruisers have a very low top tube. If your husband happens to have one of those the adapter bar like part # UB01 would be very helpful to stabilize the ride on your Swagman Chinook rack # S64683.

  • Hitch Mount Hanging Rhino-Rack Bike Rack on a 2015 Scion xB
  • I may have a solution for you but Rhino-Rack does not have a 3-bike hanging hitch mount bike rack. Since you're going to be carrying three bikes you'll need the Class II Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12490. It's confirmed to fit your 2015 Scion xB and a Class I hitch cannot carry more than two bikes. With the Curt hitch you will also need the support strap # 18050. It's required by Curt when using the hitch for any non-trailer loads like a bike rack. For a 3-bike rack I recommend...

  • The Pro Rack Bike Rack part # PR8062404 is a great bike rack that would work well for you on your 2014 Scion xB. All you would need to install is a trailer hitch like the Draw Tite part # 24815 which I would recommend for you.

  • using a 2 Inch Bike Rack in a Class II 1-1/4 Inch Hitch on a 2009 Scion xB
  • You can use adapter # HTAD to use a 2 inch accessory in a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch on your 2009 Scion xB. However doing so will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The Curt Class II hitch for your Scion is # C12490 and it is rated for 350 pounds tongue weight. The use of the adapter will reduce that down to 175 pounds. Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier)...

  • Reese Eclipse Bike Rack Recommendation for a Toyota Highlander
  • The Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 that you referenced would work well on your Toyota Highlander as long as it has a hitch installed with a 2 inch opening. Check out the installation instructions and review video for this product I attached. For the womens bikes, since they do not typically have horizontal top tubes you would want a Swagman Easy-Out Bike Adapter Bar # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube to make carrying the womens bikes easier and safer. I attached a review video...

  • Is Swagman G10 Bike Rack Compatible with Class I Hitch and 50 lbs E-Bike
  • The Swagman G10 2-Bike Platform Rack # S64682 will work great for your application because it is compatible with a Class I hitch and it has a max rating of 45 lbs per bike. When you remove the battery from your E-Bike (which is recommended to reduce stress put on the battery) this will reduce the weight of your E-Bike to at least that 45 lb limit, it not put you under it. Attached is a review video for you to check out.
