Subaru Crosstrek 2018 Hitch Mounted Platform Bike Rack Recommendation


I am purchasing a new Subaru Crosstrek 2018 and plan on having the dealer install an OEM Subaru 1 1-4 in hitch. Is there a platform type 2-bike rack that will work with that hitch? I will only carry 1 male and one girl bicycle no cross bar. I dont want to use an adapter to hang the girls bike.

Since the hitch pin hole on the factory hitch on a 2017 Subaru Forester is so close to the face of the receiver not every bike rack works well.

The 2-bike rack that I recommend for the factory Subaru hitch is the BikeWing # LGA54FR. This rack will works well with the shallower hitch pin of the factory Subaru hitch. I have linked a video review of this rack for you as well.
