Best Bike Rack For Two Electric Bikes Weighing 48 lbs

Question:

I have two identical bikes. They are electric assist bikes weighing 48 lbs. They have a step-through frame design. Refer to https://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/bikes/electra-bikes/electra-e-bikes/townie-go/townie-go-7d-step-thru/p/28125/?colorCode=green The bikes are Towne style. I have an SUV and I am installing a 2 inch hitch. I need recommendation for a bike rack. Will I need a bar to go between the seat and handle bars. If so, the one I see on your site is not rated for the weight of the bike.

The bike rack you need is the Swagman Current # S64678. It will fit in your 2" hitch, can hold up to 60lbs per bike, will work well with your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe because of it's tilting feature. You will be able to tilt the rack away even with your Towne Style Electric Bike.

You will need an adapter bar since it is an odd style frame. Grab two of the Swagman Adapter Bar # 64005 for both of your bikes as long as they are under 35 lbs. The adapter bar has a capacity of 35 lbs but this has no affect on the capacity of the bike rack.

I've included a video of me personally using the Swagman Current if you wanted to get a closer look!
