Swagman 2.0 vs Rola NV2 Bike Rack Comparison


Which do you recommend - this rack swagman semi 2.0 vs Rola NV2 - for hauling 2 bikes on a long trip 1200miles. Need something sturdy that I dont have to worry about.

Between the Swagman Semi 2.0 part # S64686 and the Rola NV2 Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack # 59508 I would highly recommend the Swagman Semi 2.0.

The Swagman uses the nicest bike attachment style of all bike racks. It only touches the bike at the tires. This is great for carbon framed bikes or ones that have expensive finishes that you do not want to damage. This rack also comes with an anti-rattle device, and hitch and bike locks.

The NV2 isn't a terrible bike rack by any means, but it just isn't as nice as the Swagman. It will have quite a bit more movement in the rack while travelling and does not have included locks. For a long road trip the Swagman would be the better choice.
