Recommended Bike Rack To Accommodate Two Giant Cypress Model Bikes Facing The Same Direction

Question:

We have two Giant Cypress model bikes. The only way they can fit is to face them in the same direction. I moved the cradles to the ends of the arms, but the seats and handlebars still dont clear each other. I do have baskets on each of the rear bike carriers, which doesnt help matters. I havent tried mounting the anti sway cradles yet. Im not sure if this is going to work or not. Any suggestions? No fair throwing in an instant rebate before I get this squared away.

Since you need the bikes to face in the same direction, I recommend getting the Thule Apex XT 4 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # TH9025XT. This will fit on your vehicle the same way, but give you arms with a longer distance to allow 7 inch spacing between each bike to allow the fit of 2 bikes in the same direction utilizing the anti-sway cradles.

I recommend getting a bike adapter bar like the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005 or the Thule Bike Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes # TH982XT to give you a more level ride and ground clearance by creating a top frame tube for bikes that don't have a straight top tube.
