Bike Rack For 50 lb Bikes on Class I Trailer Hitch for 2017 Toyota Prius c


Is there a bike rack for a Prius C that I may use for an ebike weighing 50 pounds Thank you


Expert Reply:

Since your 2017 Toyota Prius c only has Class 1, 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches available - the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11484 and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24971, you will need a Class I compatible rack capable of carrying a 50 lb bike; for that you'll need the Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH23JV

This is a premium bike rack that offers a lot of quality-of-life features which make it very easy to use, particularly for installation in your hitch. The T2 tightens in your hitch with just the twist of a knob, so you aren't on your hands and knees trying to tighten a hitch bolt in an awkward position like with so many other bike racks.

This rack also gives you security with integrated locks that secure the rack to your Prius hitch and a cable lock that will secure your electric bike to the rack. Overall, there isn't a better option for a Class I compatible hitch for a 50 lb bike than the Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack # TH23JV.
