Recommended Heavy Duty Bike Rack For 65lb Fat Tire Electric Bike


Will this bike rack accomodate a fat tire ebike weighing 65 pounds? Ill be driving from SoCal to New Mexico. Is this rack rugged enough for this trip?

I have another option for you, but the Hollywood Racks Destination Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HLY94FR you were looking at is only rated to carry bikes weighing up to 35lbs each and will not be able to accommodate your 65lb fat tire electric bike.

Instead I recommend the Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # S94FR which can accommodate two bikes weighing up to 70lbs each making it perfect for your electric bike, and it is a very strong bike rack that is even rated for the extra stress caused by being mounted on a travel trailer so it will be plenty strong for your trip from SoCal to New Mexico.

Since your bike has fat tires you will need Fat Tire Adapter Kit # S64679 which will work with tires up to 5" wide.

I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
