Recommended Bike Rack for a 2006 Honda CR-V With a Spare Tire


4 bike rack to clear spare tire on my 2006 Honda CRV?


Expert Reply:

For your 2006 Honda CR-V with a spare tire I recommend using the Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack # TH9027XT. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright bar on the carrier is 12 inches which should give you more than enough room for your spare tire. This bike rack features a swinging arm that will allow you to gain access to your cargo area just keep in mind that you will most likely not be able to open your rear door all of the way. It also has bike locks built into the rack to deter theft of your bikes.

For alternative, women's, and children's bike frames you will want to also use the SportRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar # SR0500 which will allow your bikes to hang level from the bike rack.

I have attached a demonstration video for you as well.
