Hitch Mount Bike Rack for Kids Bikes with Training Wheels and Adult Bikes


I need to fit a variety of bikes on one rack. My daughter has a 14inch tire bike with training wheels, my son has 16inch wheels, and my wifes bike has a irregular top tube. Will those bikes all fit on this rack? Im particularly concerned about the 14inch with training wheels. I am considering this or the Curt Premium 4 Bike hanging rack, but the platform seems preferable for ease of loading given the variety of bikes.

Your 2 kids bikes are not going to fit on the Pro Series Q-Slot # PS63138. There aren't really any good bike rack options for bikes with training wheels. The RockyMounts SplitRail # RKY11404-4 is a potential option though. It is compact enough that the training wheels will be supported. It could prove to be an awkward way to carry a bike that small though and the hook may not come down far enough to clamp down on its front tire.

Another potential option is the Malone Pilot # MPG2112-2115 because the hooks can come down on the frame OR on the front wheel. Again though the bike with training wheels may not fit due to the wheel cradle design on this rack.

Another option is to use Hollywood Racks Sport Rider with cargo carrier # HR1450Z-85. Then you could carry the smaller kid bikes in the cargo carrier portion, strap them down, and use the regular bike rack part for the adult bikes.
