Which Spare Tire Bike Rack Has the Highest Weight Capacity
Which spare tire mounted bike rack has the most load carrying capacity? So far, it looks like the one from surco. Is this correct? Thx
asked by: D S
I have attached a list of all our spare tire mounted bike racks for you to look through. Out of these options, the Surco Spare Tire 3 Bike Rack part # BT300 as you mentioned has the highest carrying capacity which is 35 lbs per bike. The rest of the spare tire mounted bike rack options we offer top out at 33 lb per bike.
The Surco will allow for up to 3 bikes to be carried at a time, has rubber pads to protect the bike's frame, and comes with a lock. If you will be using this bike rack with any bikes that have an alternative frame, you may also want to look into an adapter bar like part # SR0500 to ensure they will work with this rack without issue.
I have also attached a review video on the adapter bar to give you a better idea of why it is needed.
