Comparing The Hollywood Racks Trail Rider To the SportRack 2 Bike Rack


What are the differences between the Hollywood Trail Rider 2 and SportRack 2, bicycle hitch mounted racks?


Expert Reply:

The Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2-Bike Rack - 1-1/4", 2" Hitch - Platform Style - Frame Mount # HR200Z has an anti-wobble hitch and shank rise of 5 inches. It has a weight capacity of 45 lbs per bike. The distance between the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the wheel hoop is 12-1/2 inches. It has a maximum wheel base of 60 inches. For this rack, I recommend the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable Lock for Hollywood Racks Commuter, Traveler, Sport Rider Bike Racks # HRLHPTC.

The SportRack 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Platform Style has a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright mast of 19 inches. It has a wheel base max of 58 inches and a capacity of 45 lbs per bike. It has a rise from the top of the shank to the bottom of the wheel hoops of 3 inches. I recommend the SportRack Hitch and Cable Lock - Keyed Alike # A32022 for this rack.

These bike racks are far more similar than different. The biggest difference is the precision-slide clamping system versus the knob tightening. For this, I give the edge to the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2.
