Reese Q-Slot Bike Rack Compatibility with Step-Thru Frame Bikes


First does the cost includes both 2 and 4 bike racks? Second how is it for clamping down on a womens comfort bike. There is no bar for the vertical clamping. Can you send a pic for example?

The Reese Q-Slot Platform-Style 2 Bike and 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # PS63138 is the 4 bike carrier that can be reduced to the 2-bike carrier. The adjustability of the hooks is all the way down to the pivot of the center mast so it will fit all women's comfort bikes. If you want to have more stability when carrying a step-thru frame bike, then I recommend adding the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005 which will add a top frame rail between the seat and handlebars to give the rack and hook better leverage to hold the bike in place. You can see a similar application at the 0:25 second mark on the attached platform rack video.

I also recommend using a cable lock like # e98891 which can secure your bikes and rack when run through your safety chain loop on your trailer hitch.
