According to Swagman, the single bike capacity for their # S64678 Current bike rack is 60 lbs per bike, and exceeding that capacity for either isn't recommended. We do have an alternative, though.

I'd go with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE, part # HLY74FR which fits 1-1/4 inch (class II only) and 2 inch hitches. The Sport Rider SE can handle 2 bikes weighing up to 80 lbs apiece and also tilts for cargo area access. Because the rack holds the bikes by the bottom of the tires and by the top frame tube, it works just fine for bikes with fenders.

I've linked to demonstration videos for the bike racks mentioned above.
