Hitch Bike Rack For 2 Heavy Bikes And 2 Lighter Bikes For Hitch With 200 lb Max Tongue Weight

Question:

Hello, I recently purchased the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2inch for my 2010 Honda Fit and I am looking to get a hitch bike rack to tow 4 bikes. 2 cruisers, bmx bike and a kids bike. I’m worried about the weight capacity but I was looking at the Yakima brand racks specifically the Yakima full swing hitch. If the cruiser bikes weigh in closer to 50lbs will this be an issue ? Is there something that is comparable? Thank you

The Yakima Full Swing # Y02465 will only have 50 lbs per bike so that isn't an option for you. I do have a 4 bike rack that will work with your 2" hitch # 306-X7286 on your 2010 Honda Fit, but you won't be able to use a swing away system since your tongue weight maxes out at 200lbs. The Saris SuperClamp # SA4026F would work for you. It will tilt away and has a 60 lb capacity for your heavier bikes. Make sure to put the heavy bikes closest to your vehicle and the outer cradles will be for your lighter bike which has a capacity of 35lbs.
