Can Standard Tire Bikes Be Carried on Fat Bike Version of Hollywood Racks HR1655 RV Rider Bike Rack


Interested in this rack and currently have 1 fat tire bike and one standard tire bike. Will use on the rear of our 5th wheel. Can the wheel holders be changed out so that in the future if we add another fat tire bike to replace the current standard tire it would accomodate two fat tire bikes?


Expert Reply:

If there's a chance you might go with an additional fat tire bike in the future, go ahead and go with the Fat bike version, part # HLY64FR. You can still carry a bike with a traditional tire in a fat bike rack, the wheel hoop is short enough that it will still support the wheel/tire. The lateral support for the bike is provided by the clamps, not the hoops so the fact that the hoop will be wider than the tire won't hurt anything at all.

Because we currently don't carry replacement wheel hoops for the RV rider, going with the Fat Tire rack would be your best bet.
