Can Longbikes Eliminator G2 Recumbent Bike Fit On Thule Raceway Pro On 2007 Acura TL


Can this rack Thule OutWay carry a Longbikes Eliminator G2 recumbent bike with under-seat steering?


Expert Reply:

The Thule OutWay # TH45JV would not work well with your Longbikes Eliminator G2. It would be difficult mounting the bike on the arms of the carrier and the carrier has a weight capacity of 33-lbs per bike. I was unable to find the weight of your bike in my research.

The design of the bike and possibly the weight would be very stressful on the back of the vehicle. I recommend installing a trailer hitch like part # 24755 on your Acura and then using a hitch-mounted bike carrier designed for recumbent bikes. A trailer hitch will provide a more stable support for carrying bikes.

The carrier I recommend is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount part # HR1450Z and the attachment part # HRTRK-ADP This bike rack has a weight capacity of 50-lbs per bike and tilts away from the vehicle for easier loading and unloading.
