Recommended 1 Bike Platform Rack Rated For Use on a Vehicle Being Flat Towed


Is it possible to search for bike rack that is suitable for flat-towed vehicle? I love that you show this information but I dont know how to get a list of only those that are flat-towable. I am looking for a 2 inch hitch - I think I like the platform bike racks the best. I only need to haul one bike. This is for a Ford Edge 2020.

I've got the perfect solution for you; have a look at the Yakima SingleSpeed 1-Bike Platform Bike Rack # Y02481 which fits on both 1-1/4" and 2" receivers and is designed and rated specifically for flat towed vehicles. This is a wheel mounted bike rack, so there's no bike frame adapter bar needed if you've got a bike with an aggressive step-through frame, and it comes with locks to secure the bike to the rack and the rack to the vehicle.

I've linked a short review video of this rack for you to have a look at, but it really is the perfect solution for you. I've also linked all of the bike racks that are rated for use on the back of a flat towed vehicle for you to have a look at.
