Expert Answers about Kia Sportage Hitch Bike Racks


  • Availability of Bike Rack with Ramp to Carry 75 lb E-Bike
  • The bike rack with the highest weight capacity that has a ramp that can be utilized is the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 but it can only handle up to 65 lb E-Bikes and I'm not sure if you'd be able to get your bike down that low. We do have the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HLY74FR which would be able to carry your 75 lb E-Bike but this doesn't have a ramp so you'd have to muscle the bike up to the bike rack. Because of this, the best option for your application is to use a motorcycle...

  • Will Thule Hitching Post Pro Work With Class ll Hitch On 2017 Kia Sportage
  • The Curt Class ll Hitch # C12158 we offer for your 2017 Sportage is capable of carrying 4 bikes. The note about Class l hitches does not apply to the # C12158. The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR will work with the 1-1/4 inch receiver you have on your vehicle. The bike carrier does have a weight capacity of 35 lbs for each bike. If you are planning on carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend using an adapter bar like part # 64005. This...

  • Platform Bike Rack for RV to use with a Aggressive Frame Bike
  • Yes. The Thule EasyFold XT2 # TH903202 is a great choice to use with bikes that have aggressive step-throughs like the ones found on your cruiser bike.

The EasyFold has independently detachable arms that can be repositioned anywhere along upright frame to hold bikes by the downtubes or top tubes...

  • 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Kia Sportage
  • To carry 4 bikes at the rear of your 2009 Kia Sportage your best option would be to use a receiver hitch and a hitch mounted bike rack. One of our most popular 4 bike racks is the Thule Hitching Post, # TH934XTR, which has anti-sway cradles to prevent damage to your bikes or the back of the vehicle and can be folded down away from the rear of the vehicle for access when out on a ride. If you don't have a receiver hitch, the hitch I recommend for your vehicle is the Draw-Tite Class...

  • Can Bike With Long Handlebars Allow LiftGate To Open With Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier
  • As you said, the video of the Yakima HoldUp, part # Y02443 on a 2017 Sportage shows a bike with 9-inches from the center of the handlebar stem to the outside of the handlebar. In the video there is only a couple of inches clearance when the rear liftgate is opened. Since you have a bike that has much longer handlebars I recommend using one of the outer positions of the bike carrier. This would place the end of the handlebar further away from the back of the vehicle.
