Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack For Long Wheel Base Recumbent Bike On 2020 Infiniti Q50


Hi. I am interested in the Curt 4 Platform rack. What is the longest wheel base it can accomodate? I have a long wheel base recumbent. Thanks.

I have another option but since the Curt 4 Bike Platform Rack # C18087 you were looking at was designed for standard bikes, it is unlikely that it will be able to accommodate your long wheelbase recumbent bike. Also since the only trailer hitch receivers available for your Infiniti Q50 are 1-1/4", the Curt # C18087 will not fit as it is only compatible with a 2" trailer hitch receiver.

Instead I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack for 2 Recumbent Bikes # HR1000Z-R which will fit bikes with a wheel base up to 74", and weighing up to 45lbs each. This rack will allow you to carry your recumbent bike and an additional bike which could be a standard bike or recumbent as well, and will work in 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers available for your 2020 Infiniti Q50.

If you do not already have a trailer hitch receiver on your Q50 I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24931 which will pair up perfectly with the Hollywood Racks # HR1000Z-R.

I included videos of the Draw-Tite # 24931 being installed on a 2018 Infiniti Q50 for you to take a look at.
