The Swagman Horizontal Style 2 Bike Bag # S82006 will fit the Swagman Escapee 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64693 but because the Escapee is a wheel-mounted bike rack it will be more difficult to use than with a frame-mounted bike rack, depending on what type of bikes you have.

The reason for that is the extra width of a wheel-mounted rack with the arm sticking out is going to give your less overall width to mount your bikes; when we test fit this bag on a different wheel-mounted bike rack we found that we had a maximum of 30 inches of width, and even that was tight (see accompanying photo).

I recommend getting the Swagman Escapee 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64693 first and then mounting your bikes and measuring the overall width to see if you can comfortably use the Swagman Horizontal Style 2 Bike Bag # S82006.
