Recommended Bike Rack For 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with Spoiler


I just bought a 2018 Crosstrek. I want a bike rack that is secure and easy to use. Not a roof rack. I am 5’2”. Also have a woman’s bike , if it makes a difference. Don’t want to spend a fortune

I'm assuming the photo attached is your Crosstrek and because of the spoiler, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2. This is specifically made for vehicles like yours to avoid contact and damage to a spoiler. This is a very versatile and adjustable bike rack to meet your needs. I do recommend the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005 as well as the Softride # SR54FR to secure your front wheel to the frame. For security I also recommend the Thule security strap # TH533 and a cable lock like # e98891.

For another option with no vehicle contact, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76209 and the Thule T1 1-Bike Platform Rack - Wheel Mount # TH9041 for a single bike or the Swagman Semi 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack - Tilting # S64686 for a 2 bike option. Both come with the locks needed for the rack and the bike(s).
