Lightweight Bike Rack Recommendation for Trek Verve+ eBike on 2012 Acura MDX


I have an Acura MDX 2012. I need to know which bike rack will work best for my new Trek Versa+ eBike. Im hoping for a light weight, low cost tank if possible.


Expert Reply:

Though you said Trek Versa+ eBike I believe you meant Trek Verve+ and for carrying that bike on your 2012 Acura MDX I strongly recommend the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4412B because at 22-1/2 lbs it is one of the lightest platform racks in the industry but still has a 60 lb per bike capacity and is a highly economical choice relative to other racks capable of carrying an E-bike.

The Saris Freedom uses cradles that are adjustable along its mast so it can easily grasp your Verve+ bike and keep it secure to the rack. The cradles are soft meaning they will be gentle on your bike's frame and help keep it pristine-looking. It will further secure your bike with its wheel trays that have ratcheting straps and which slide to give you the perfect fit.

This rack is made in the USA, comes with a lifetime warranty and will work in either a 1-1/4" hitch or a 2" hitch such as the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13354 that fits your 2012 Acura MDX.

I have added links to a couple video reviews of the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Rack # SA4412B for you to take a look at.
