Yes, you will be able to use a Class I bike rack to carry two bikes on the Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch, part # 24808. When selecting a bike rack you need to be sure it is rated for a Class I hitch because Class II accessories will not fit in Class I hitches, the shank will be too long. You will also need to measure the distance between the hitch pin hole and the farthest rear point of the rear bumper once the hitch is installed to determine the best fit for a bike rack on your vehicle.

Some of our best selling 2 bike racks for the 1-1/4 inch Class I hitch are the Thule Camber, # TH9058, and the Swagman XTC-2, part # S64670.

If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.
