Comparing the Two Best E-Bike Racks from Thule and Yakima  


We drive a 2006 Lexus GX470. We have a 2” hitch mount. We bought two Rad Mini Ebikes each weighing 60 # with battery removed. Which bike racks would you suggest we compare. Please note our rear door opens on the left and opens out not up/down. Thank you for your reply in advance.

For heavier e-bikes like yours there are two frontrunners for bike racks to consider with the Thule EasyFold XT part # TH903202 and the Yakima OnRamp part # Y36FR. What sets these apart from others is they both have ramps to make loading and unloading bikes easier since e-bikes are heavy.

The EasyFold folds down into a smaller size when not in use which helps for garage storage but the OnRamp is 6 lbs lighter at 39 lbs compared to 45. That's how I'd pick if I were you. Which would you prefer? Something a little lighter or something that stores a bit smaller? Also the Yakima currently is priced noticeable better which is a big factor too.

I attached review videos for both racks for you to check out as well.
