Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Options for E-Bike Weighing 53 Pounds


I have an XTC2 and it worked perfectly with my regular road bike. Now I wanted to use it for an ebike weighing 53 lbs. Is there a wheel hoops I can buy so I can use it for the ebike? I want a double purpose cargo and bike carrier. I have an e-bike weighing 53 lbs with a wheel base of 44. I dont mind if its a separate purchase of wheel holder and cargo carrier so long as it will provide secured transport. Thank you.

The Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 or XTC-2 Tilting # S64671 are only compatible with bikes up to 35 lbs. Adding larger wheel holders would not be a solution as this bike carrier is not compatible with your 53 lb e-bike.

There are a couple options to consider for a double purpose cargo and bike carrier. You can use the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches # HR1450Z-85 or you can use the Hollywood Racks Truck Bed Bike Carrier - Fork Mount - Bolt On # HRT970 and SeaSucker Hogg - Bike Wheel Carrier - Anodized Aluminum # 298-BA1580 with the hitch mounted carrier of your choice. If it has a grated bottom, then you likely will need to use a customized plate to secure the fork mount from moving. Yet another option is the Bike Rack Adapter for Stromberg Carlson Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier # CC-125.
