What Platform Bike Rack Do You Recommend with a Step-Through Bike with Fenders on a 2021 Volvo XC40?

Question:

Hello, Im looking for platform bike rack, for 2inch hitch, that can carry a step-through bike that has fenders. It is not an electric bike. Lightweight is preferable, but not mandatory. Thanks.

For a great option for transporting 1 non-electric bike on your 2021 Volvo XC40, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # HR200Z. Since the Trail Rider attaches at your bike's frame, it will bypass any potential cracking or damage to the bike's fenders. The Trail Rider only weighs 36.25 pounds. We unfortunately do not carry a single-bike option that has a frame-mounted attachment style.

Since you have a step-through frame style, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes # HRBA-PRO. With the adapter bar, you will have a straight, horizontal plane to mount to the Convoy's ratcheting arm.

If you need a hitch recommendation for your 2021 Volvo XC40 that is compatible with the Trail Rider, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76245. The Draw-Tite is a great economical 2-inch hitch that comes with all the hardware required for a bolt-on installation.

Question:

What do you recommend if I wish to transport the occasional second bike?

If you are planning to carry an occasional second bike, I recommend the Saris Freedom - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # SA4412B. The carrier weight of the rack is only 22.5 pounds. In addition, the Freedom attaches at the frame to avoid damaging the fenders during transport. Even with your step-thry frame, you do not need to buy a bike frame adapter bar due to the independently-adjusting cradles. As far as a hitch receiver that is compatible with the Curt 2, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76245.
