This Curt bike rack makes it easy to carry 2 bikes on the back of your vehicle. The platform-style rack is easier to load than a hanging rack because you don't have to lift your bikes nearly as high to get them into place. Ratcheting hooks and wheel hoops accommodate 2 bikes of most shapes and sizes. The entire rack tilts down for easy access to your cargo area, even while the bikes are loaded. And you can choose between 2 different ways to fold the rack up for storage on your vehicle when it's not in use.

Ratcheting Frame Hooks

Each center mast has 2 ratcheting hooks that move up and down independently of one another. This allows you to carry up to 2 bikes of different heights or with different frame styles. The hooks firmly grip your bikes by the top tubes, and they are cushioned to protect your bike frames from scratches and scuffs. Once you slide the hooks into position, just lock them in place.

Adjustable Wheel Hoops

Curt platform bike rack cradles

Sturdy, adjustable wheel hoops let you carry bikes of different lengths. Use the built-in knobs to loosen the hoops. Then slide the hoops to the desired position along the platform base and tighten them into place.

Tilting and Folding Design

Curt platform bike rack in tilted position

The entire rack can be tilted down - away from your vehicle - so that you can easily access your rear cargo area, even when your bikes are loaded. Just pull the pin at the base of the rack to tilt it down.

Curt platform bike rack storage options

There are 2 ways that you can fold up the rack to store it on your vehicle when it's not in use. Option 1 lets you fold the cradle arms up towards the upright mast. Simply remove the pins and fold up the arms. Then replace the pins to secure the arms in the upright position. Option 2 lets you fold the rack up against the rear of your vehicle. First, lower the center mast by removing its pin and clip at the base and then fold the mast down forward. Then remove the pins from the base of the rack and fold up the carrier.

Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin and Adapter Sleeve

Curt platform bike rack anti-rattle hitch pin

This rack comes with an anti-rattle hitch pin. The threaded pin holds the bike rack in your hitch, and it reduces noise and movement of the rack inside your hitch. An adapter sleeve is included as well, which allows the rack to fit either a 1-1/4" or a 2" hitch receiver. Because this bike rack has a threaded shank, it is not compatible with standard hitch locks.

I installed this rack onto a Curt trailer hitch which is mounted onto a 2017 Honda Fit. I have been using it intermittently for several months, probably about 5 times with one bike and twice with two bikes. I give some pros and cons below and then elaborate.

Pros: easy to assemble, easy to mount and dismount bikes, easy to lock and unlock, how to put the rack into different positions is intuitive

Cons: inconvenient to put the rack into different positions, inconvenient to mount the rack onto the hitch, rack protrudes about 15 inches from bumper when in flipped up position (seems very vulnerable to someone backing into it in a parking lot, very inelegant looking

I say the repositioning is intuitive because there is really only one way you could possibly place the pins for each position. But removing and replacing two pins is much less convenient than turning a knob or a lever, like some racks do. Also many racks fold and flip in such a way as to look very unobtrusive when in non-use mode. This one looks like kind of a monstrosity. That does not really bother me but it might bother some owners. The part that does bother me is how far it protrudes from the car. I back into parking spaces whenever possible to avoid someone bumping into the rack and damaging it (which happened to a friend).

My number one suggestion for Curt is related to mounting the rack onto the hitch. Make it easier to tell when the holes are lined up so that the bolt/pin will fit and thread. As it is now, if you insert the rack as far as it can go it is way too far in. Ideally, it would be exactly lined up. Failing that, maybe some kind of click or other feedback to know at least that you are in the neighborhood. It would also be great to have an attaching device that is easier to fasten and unfasten than is the bolt/pin.

Tip for mounting the rack onto the hitch: I assumed that it would be awkward to hold, what is it 46 pounds?, while trying to line up the rack probe with the receiver. If you have a garage with exposed collar ties, my solution could work well for you. I looped a cargo strap over a collar tie. Then I hooked both hooks of a bungie onto that loop. The idea is that you hook one of the bike frame holders of the rack onto the bungie, suspending the rack a few inches off the garage floor. This takes most of the weight of the rack so that you can just pull up or down and forward until you line up with the receiver.

Tip for mounting bikes. Don't put the little screw into the post that prevents you from completely removing the bike frame holders. Remove both holders. Position the first bike, slide the holder into place, position the second bike, slide the holder into place. I found this makes it much easier, because you avoid parts of the bike hitting the holder as you are trying to get the wheels into place. The trick is that if you are mounting only one bike, don't forget to put the second holder back on - or maybe just stick it inside the car right away.


The rack worked well on a recent 300 mile round trip. It is not a 700 dollar rack, so you'll have to deal with the various clips and pins to make the adjustments and tilt it down for access to your hatch. I used it with the recommended strap and that really seemed to help stabilize it.

I mounted this on a Golf GTI; there were plenty of photos of GTIs here on etrailer with hitches and bike racks, so I knew this would work. What I didn't expect is that when I put the car in reverse, the parking assist thinks you are about to back over something. On my model (2018 GTI Autobahn), you can't just ignore the warning beep -- it will lock down the brakes! I spent some time messing the settings for lane assist before realizing it was actually the parking assist feature, not lane assist. For me, as soon as I put the car in reverse and hear the alarm, I have to press the button to turn off parking assist. That's the only way to get it to work.


Pro: Good sturdy rack suitable to transport one or two mountain bikes. Well-made and does not rattle or shake while driving. Good value with good ground clearance on sloping driveway. Adjustable trays for bikes with different wheelbases. Easy to load and lock bikes securely. Also easy to add more security such as cable locks or chain and padlock. Trays fold up when not in use.
Con: The bike rack uses a threaded “anti-rattle” bolt to secure it to the hitch , not the usual receiver pin lock and some form of rattle/shake prevention.. According to installation instructions, this bolt needs 75 ft lbs of torque to secure against rattle and shaking. Once it is on, the rack is not easily removable between rides. So one point deducted for inconvenience.


The rack carries the bicycle safely and securely, as advertised. However if some other method had been provided instead of pins that must be removed and reinserted to tilt the rack or fold the rack, I would have given the rack a higher rating. The pins work ok, but this feature could have been more user friendly.

Also, I was concerned that I could carry my Bike Friday NWT, a bike with a very low crossbar and 20-inch wheels. I submitted the question of fit to etrailer and received a prompt assurance the the rack would work. It does, however the hoops that capture the wheels allow the wheels to settle deeper than if the bike had larger wheel (26" or more). My bike has fenders and I am planning to trim about an inch or so from the rear end of the front fender so that it doesn't hit the hoop.

The technical team at etrailer are excellent. I have especially valued their installation videos when purchasing other products. etrailer gets the full 5 stars.

I would like to assist you and I wanted to see if you would be willing to send a picture of how your Jeeps door opens and how the bike rack interferes with it.


Finally have a carrier i can carry both of my bikes on it's well built & seems secure. It fits my new mtb bike,they have increased the wheelbase on new mtb bikes considerably so potential buyers take note of that. Thanks etrailer!!!


After a lot of research, I purchased this for my 2018 Jeep JL. According to what I read, it would fit my vehicle. I got it assembled and on the hitch. I really liked it. Loaded bikes, perfect. Then came the bad news. I tilted out the bikes to access the back end. It doesn't work. The lower part of the rack interferes with the spare tire and you can only open it a few inches. That was the whole reason I purchased this unit. So now I am stuck with a rack that I will have to completely remove each time I need to access the back end.

Hi Jenny. Thank you for reaching out. I have attached several pictures. You can see that while it does tilt out, the fixed piece that goes into the receiver does not move and only allows the door to open slightly. This is a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sport JL with standard spare. I estimate that I would need to add a receiver of about 6 inches before the tire would clear that ”L” shaped piece. Let me know if you have additional questions.

With how the back door swings open on the Jeep I know of a few options on a rack that would allow it to open. You can add a part like part # Y02483 that would allow the rack to swing to the side. It is a pricier option. You could switch out to a different rack like part # HRSR1 that mounts around the tire.


I installed this rack on a 2015 BMW X3 with a Curt 2" receiver. The installation went OK except that the spring retaining clips in several cases need to opened with a screwdriver vs by hand. Here are some of my comments. First is the retaining bolt was very difficult to install with the wrench provided (see Photo) you can not turn the bolt very far with any wrench. I used a driver and a 19mm socket. I then bought one to have in the car. Second, our bikes have different cross bar heights, so it was not possible to put the larger bike on the inside closest to the vehicle (see Photo). The clip the holds the bikes in place could not go down enough with the larger bike on the inside so switching them solved that issue. Third the draw bar portion does not have a stop to help line up the holes for the retaining bolt. This was solved by putting orange tape on the bar to help with alignment.
A good feature is that with the bike retaining clips all the way down the back hatch can be opened without any adjustment to the rack. Also the rack did not impact the foot opening switch for the back hatch. The rack did very well in our first test drive.

It is working great! We took it on a week long trip and it performed great. The 2 reciever keeps the rack a lot more stable than the 1-1/4


Works well, nice and solid. Easy to load and secure the bikes. Way better than a hanging style rack!



Still happy with this product, working just great!


This bike rack is perfect for carrying my bikes to the bike trail it's very easy to put the bike on and off and very sturdy it doesn't rattle or shake much on bumpy road. and thanks to Etrailer quick shipping I got the bike rack within 3 days of purchased and it's free shipping I love this bike rack great product.

after using it for a year still like the first day I got it. didnt have any issue, used twice every week.


Not perfect, but still the pick of the litter among affordable platform racks.

Pros: sturdy, easy to assemble and use, two storage modes, mostly thick steel with minimal plastic, good depth (works well with my '05 Buick Lacrosse, with 1-1/4" hitch recessed about 6" behind bumper face), built in keyed locks. Quite solid

Cons: barely fits tall bike, sloppy fabrication, cheap hardware; should reverse direction of short and long locking arms so taller, heavier bike goes inboard, anti-rattle hitch pin does not have a lock, so you have to buy one for $XX more.

My story: assembly failed at the first step because the 1/2-20 shank bolt was mis-threaded such that it would not accept the nut. I was able to make it work by running a rethreading die over the bolt, removing a fair amount of metal. The good folks at etrailer sent me a replacement bolt, but I had to invest $3 in a new Nyloc nut. The black finish on the hardware (nuts, bolts, pins) is so thin it might as well have been applied with a Sharpie. The rack itself is nicely powder-coated.

The bends and hole punching in the metal are sloppy. The rack lists to starboard, and the wheel support arms/hoops droop on the right side. It's just a cosmetic issue, but Curt should be embarrassed.

I have a very tall bike (27" frame),and it barely fits. That said, it does fit, at the highest stop. If the mast were a few inches taller, it would be great. As it is, I have to finagle and slightly force the bike into place. I will probably remove the stop screw for the locking arm and just remove it entirely to load the bike.

Finally, when you unpin the mast to move it into operational position from storage position, it will fall hard onto the trunk deck if you don't hold it. There needs to be a stop so the mast cannot rotate past vertical and damage the car.

Overall, good solid rack, but not all it should be in design or execution.


Hi, i have had many hitches for boat and horse trailers. i did not realize that bike hitches have a threaded pin rather than just a slide through. it is way too awkward for me to take weight off the hitch so the pin does not bind and then turn the pin with a wrench all the while sitting on the ground or a small stool. it is a very nice hitch however i do NOT use it, as i have to take it on and off a lot. i have been told, and i understand, that without the threaded pin the hitch is not stable


Rack going strong. No hay problema. Cannot leave rack on my SUV because i get stopped and ask where I by this item here in Puerto Rico. I say not here, go to etrailer. They do not believe price including shipping. They buy here in PR and they say it's like paying for a month's worth of a new car monthly payment. My Daughter brought one here do not know brand and ask for mine and she starting talking chinese to me because I did not tell her that I brought from your store. I told her you bought your before I bought mine. I win battle. She surrender. Gracias/Thank You etrailer. Will see you soon...


this has been a good product. I am 68 years old, able to lift and attach to the trailer hitch. I often put two bikes on it and so far so good. There is some bounce but I know it is safely on there.





In stock AND on time! Winning! Great customer service..even though I didn't have to use customer service. Streamlined ordering and we love our new hitch and bike rack!


Good rack. Went together well but would not slide into 1 1/4 inch receiver. Took some minor grinding.
Etrailer support accelerated shipping to meet my vacation date.
Better than average support.



Not a good review this time. Lost bikes off this rack twice. The locking sliders are poor quality and come loose during travel. Had to drill through the upright and use a pin to keep things tight. Found we could not keep the tires in the hoops supplied without buying and using extra straps.


I use this rack for long distance travel. I pull on & off everytime I use. For the price it works very well,bikes on rack are very secure, it does loosen up after a road trip so make sure you tighten down at receiver.


So after one year of use, I have to say that this bike rack is worth every penny. It is the most thought trough design possible. Clearly the designers use their own product themselves. This is so easy to use, stores in a small space, makes bringing our bikes a fun easy add on to any weekend. I am glad I picked this bike rack, I would order again, but don't think I ever will need to, as it seems to be well made. I highly recommend it to people who want an easy, quality, bike rack. I have had cheaper bike racks, and again I am so glad I picked this one. Worth every penny.


purchased C11550 Curt Hitch and C18085 Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack. Both are exactly what we needed to haul our bikes. The C11550 Hitch had a defect, the folks at etrailer were great and sent out a replacement ASAP at that went on with no problems, very happy with the products and customer service from etrailer.


great quality design and build. secure and convenient bicycle rack.



it is an excellent two bicycle rack!


Product worked as advertised hitch was easy to put install, on line guide video was great, bike rack was easy to put together and install. Bikes fit great. Took for a drive with bikes loaded and no wobble or vibration noted. Pic,s follow


Received the rack and installed on the”06”CRV and loaded the bikes all good.
Afterwards tried it out on our “01” Super Crew with same result. Having the option using either vehicle “nice”.
Thanks again,

Still working fine when needed, thanks


Easy to put together, instructions were very clear. I have not yet loaded my bikes and taken a drive but I don’t see any issues. When folded up it sticks out farther then I expected. It also sets off my backup alarm when I put the car in reverse.


While I have not yet used the product, it arrived in good condition and was easy to assemble. The quality of the components seems good. The whole unit appears to be a bit lighter and more flexible than I expected with my step thru frame e-bike mounted. The e-bike approaches the limit of the individual bike wt. rating with battery removed. Two e-bikes would be a stretch. I had hoped to use it without a top bar adaptor, but I believe it will be more stable with an adaptor over uneven surfaces, rail tracks, etc. I will know more when I take it out for a test run.


Works great. Only reccomendation is to manufacturer. Hitch pin is threaded so a third party lock has to be threaded or I will have to drill out threads


Received promptly; instructions on assembly understandable; easy to order

    The trailer hitch I would recommend for your 2015 Toyota Camry to carry the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack # C18085 would be the Draw Tite part # 36540 which is a confirmed fit and would work well.

    For your beach cruiser with 4 inch tires, I recommend the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount - Tilting # C18085-FB. This bike rack will fit tires of up 4-7/8 inches wide and will hold the bikes by the frame in case your beach cruiser has the typical fenders. This Curt rack will fold close to the car when not in use to give you the most clearance for your garage door and it is compatible with bikes up to 45 lbs each. I've attached a video to assist.

  • Using the Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap for Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack
    I suggest you add the Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap for Hitch-Mounted Accessories, # 18050 to your Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack, # C18085. This stabilizing strap provides extra support to the bike rack and the vinyl-coated hook won't scratch your vehicle. Please note the product demonstration Videos I have linked below.

    Yes, if you're wanting to only have one set of hoops on the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bikes # C18085-FB you can remove the other set by turning the locks in a counter-clockwise direction to loosen them from the rack and then slide them off.

  • Can Curt C18085 2 Bike Platform Rack Carry 2 Women's Comfort-Style Bikes w/ Step Through Frames
    Because one of the hooks is longer, it is indeed possible to safely secure two bikes with the same frame height. The answer to your question will depend on the exact geometry of the step-through frames. The wheelbase of the rack is adjustable so that in many cases one bike can be slid one way, and one the other far enough so that the frame hooks will catch. If it won't, a frame adapter like # 64005 which spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and seat post would provide a secure...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Bike Carrier For 2014 Honda Accord
    All of the trailer hitches available for your 2014 Accord are Class l and have a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. It sounds like you are aware that placing any adapter in a hitch will reduce the towing and tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. The trailer hitch I recommend for your Accord is the Curt, part # C11496. From my research I found the towing capacity for your Accord is 1,000-lbs. That means the tongue weight capacity is between 100 and 150-lbs. This would be the weight of the...

  • Can a Bike Rack Be Used on the Front of a 2008 Ford F-350 While Towing
    Yes, the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack part # C18085 will be sufficient for use on the front of your 2008 Ford F-350 with a front mount trailer hitch. I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31008 because it is American made, no drilling is required, and only minor trimming is involved (see photo). In fact, hitch mounted accessories on the front of the vehicle would actually be more sturdy than those on the rear as the distance from the front axle to the trailer hitch...

  • Are There Replacement Tray Style Cradles Available For the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack
    Currently the only replacement trays that we have available for the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack # C18085 are the Fat Bike Adapter Kit # C18091 which is for fat tire bikes with tires up to 4-7/8" wide. We do not currently have the smaller size. The wheel hoops have 2 different orientations, if you can tell me which side/orientation that you need I would be happy to reach out to the manufacturer to see if this is a replacement part that we can get added for you.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For A 2019 Subaru Crosstrek For Bike Rack
    For a great looking, low profile hitch that gets the job done, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13382 is a great choice. You can see how it looks installed from the included picture and the installation video shows you how it's done. The Curt # C18085 is my recommendation for a simple, lightweight rack. It weighs 46lbs and can carry bikes up to 45 lbs each. It tilts back to allow access to the hatch of your 2019 Crosstrek, even when loaded with your bike. It also has rise in the...
