Recommended 2 Bike Rack for Electra Townie Bike and Hybrid on 2007 Ford Edge


Total 2 bike weight capacity for #S64650. 07 Ford edge I have an Electra Townie bike at approx 55lbls, and a hybrid bike at approx 30 lbs.. Can this rack handle the combined weight? If not, do you have another rack with higher weight capacity? Thanks!

The Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack # S64650 won't work for you but I do have another option that will work well for your bikes on your 2007 Ford Edge. I recommend the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # SA4412B which is rated for 2 bikes at up to 60 lbs each. It will hold the bikes by the frame so you won't have any issues with fenders. This is a great option for your application and I've attached a customer photo of the men's and woman's Electra Townie bikes on that rack.

If you don't like that style rack, I've linked the page to our heavy bike options that are frame mounted to work well with your Electra Townie bike. You will need to pay attention to the hitch receiver size to ensure compatibility.

The Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style for 1-1/4" and 2" Trailer Hitches # S64650 has a maximum weight capacity of 70 lbs and is limited to 35 lbs per bike, so your Townie is simply too heavy for it.
