Adapter to Use 1-1/4 Inch Bike Rack in 2 Inch Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Volvo XC60


I have an old Saris bike rack for 1 1/4inch hitch, but will be ordering a 2inch hitch for my Volvo. Which adapter would work best for me, if you know?


Expert Reply:

What you will need to go from a 2 inch hitch on your 2015 Volvo XC60 to a 1-1/4 inch bike rack shank is a reducer sleeve, # HT02. The great thing about using a reducer sleeve is that it doesn't reduce the hitch tongue weight capacity.

If you haven't settled on a hitch yet the most popular option for the 2015 XC60 is Curt hitch # 13268. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
