Best Method to Transport 2 Bikes on 2016 Ford Mustang Fastback


I need a complete system for my 2016 mustang gt hardtop so I can haul 2 bicycles


Expert Reply:

Your 2016 Ford Mustang hardtop can best transport your 2 bikes on a trailer hitch receiver. This avoids the concern of placing a fairly heavy trunk-mount rack on your brand new Pony's sheet metal or of having to lift your bikes up to roof level every time you need to transport them on a roof rack.

We offer light-duty Class I hitches for your Mustang Fastback that can be seen by clicking on the link provided. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24928 because it has the same capacity as the others but costs less. It installs without drilling using included hardware. An install video is linked to show you the process and the instructions, also linked for you, tell you what tools you'll need.

With the hitch in place you can choose a 2-bike Class I rack like the cost-effective and lightweight # B01311 from Let's Go Aero. This rack offers a generous 12-inches of clearance from it's hitch pin hole and a substantial 40-lbs-per-bike weight capacity. You can add a cable lock too, part # e98891.

If you prefer a roof rack we can certainly help you with that too. For your Mustang you'll need to use the SeaSucker Monkey Bar System # 298-SX6000B which uses vacuum cups to secure to your roof. On these round bars you can install two compatible bike carriers. The linked page shows all roof-rack-mount carriers that fit these round bars.

You can use the filters on the page to select the preferred type of mount - fork, frame or wheel. The linked article on roof bike carriers will help you decide which type best fits your particular bikes. Please note that this method of transporting eh bikes will cost substantially more than the hitch/hitch rack option.
