Class 2 Hitch And eBike Carrier For A Chevy Bolt


Is there a class 2 hitch for my chevy bolt? Weve got 2 bikes, 1 is a step over ebike 45 lb with fenders. It looks like Saris Freedom may be the only option for that bike with a class 1 hitch, but I dont know if the downtube cradle will hold the stepover ebike and we like the frame arm locks on the other models. Have we got any other options? Thanks!

The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7359 provides a 2" receiver and is a confirmed fit for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV. With a 2" receiver, you have a wider selection of bike carriers for your fendered ebike. This hitch is approved for a tongue weight of up to 300 lbs and it weighs about 30 lbs plus one bike at 45 lbs, you should be fine as far as the hitch capacity is concerned. I would also check the owners manual or a Chevy dealer first as well to confirm the vehicle has the tongue weight capacity for this job.

The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 Electric Bike Rack # HLY74FR is specially designed for ebikes, frame mounts so it would work with fendered bikes, can carry up to 80lbs per bike, and accommodates tire widths up to 5".
