Question:

Would the Saris Freedom bike rack work with the Electric Bike Model Y. It will have fenders and it has a front basket? My car is a sedan.

The Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # SA4412B will work well with your Electric Bike Company Model Y. It has a weight capacity of 60lbs per bike; according to my research your bike weighs about 56lbs, so there will be no issue there. This bike rack secures the bike by the frame and uses a rubber strap that fits just about any diameter frame tubing; there will be no interference with the fenders or basket on your bike.

I have attached a photo that shows this bike rack being used with a very similar bike to your Model Y, so it will give you a good idea of how it will fit. I have also included a demonstration video for this bike rack. Also, make sure you have a trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle; if you do not have one then you can provide your vehicle's year, make, and model so I can find the right one up for you.

Question:

Thank you Andrew. I don’t have a trailer hitch. My car is a 2019 Genesis G80.

The correct trailer hitch receiver for your 2019 Genesis G80 is Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # C12165. This is the only trailer hitch receiver available for your vehicle. It has a max tongue weight rating of 350lbs which will be more than enough to accommodate the Saris Freedom bike rack. While we do not have a video of this hitch receiver being installed onto a Genesis G80, detailed instructions and all necessary hardware are included in purchase. This offers a simple bolt-in installation process.

One thing to note is that Curt recommends using a stabilizing strap for non-trailered loads such as a bike rack. For this, use Curt Trailer Hitch Stabilizing Support Strap with Cambuckle # 18050. I have attached a demonstration video for this strap.
