Lightweight Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying Bike with Fenders

Question:

I like this rack because of its light weight. Im planning to use it with the Stromberg Carlson bike bunk attached to my trailer tongue. My concern is one of our bikes is a cruiser type with fenders. Ive noticed in one of the pictures of this application that the rear tire did not have the fender on. Will there be a problem using this rack with fenders on the bike? Thanks for your advice.

The Let's Go Aero BikeWing # LGA54FR is a great lightweight bike rack but it's not ideal for bikes with fenders. We have had customers come back and say they were able to get creative with the straps of the rack to work with the fenders but that's not an ideal solution.

My favorite 2 bike rack is the Saris Freedom SuperClamp part # SA4025F because it's a platform bike rack which means it's easy to load/unload, it's light weight at only 30 lbs, it's made in the USA, and it only touches the bikes at the tires.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
