Expert Reply:

You can use this 1 1/4 inch to 2 inch adapter, part # 80303. However, use of this adapter will LOWER the tongue weight capacity (should be listed on a sticker that is on your hitch) by 50 percent. This means that the bikes you want to carry and the carrier itself cannot weigh more than half of the listed tongue weight for your trailer hitch. Exceeding this capacity could result in damage to your hitch and loss of the rack and the bicycles.
