Will the Yakima SingleSpeed Bike Rack Work for My Magnum Metro Electric Bike on a 2020 Navigator?


I have a Magnum Metro electric bike. Will the Yakima yo2481 bike rack support this bike. My car is a 2020 Lincoln Aviator 2inch hitch. If not can you recommend a bike carrier for my electric bike.

I have a great solution for you. I did some research on your Magnum Metro electric bike and unfortunately the Yakima SingleSpeed Bike Rack for 1 Bike - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # Y02481 does not have a high enough weight capacity for your 55-pound bike. In addition, the SingleSpeed includes a wheel-mount attachment style, which will potentially cause cracking or damage to your fenders during transport on your 2020 Lincoln Aviator.

With that being said, we currently do not sell any 1-bike carriers that can both accommodate the 55-pound weight of your bike and avoid mounting the bike by the wheels. A great solution for you is the Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # S94FR. The E-Spec comes with a 70-pound per bike weight capacity and will allow you to mount your Magnum Metro by the frame. In addition, the E-Spec comes with locks integrated to deter theft. Since your bike is a step-through frame, I recommend the Swagman Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Electric, Step Through, and Cruiser Bikes # S57FR. The Swagman bike frame adapter bar will give your bike a straight, horizontal frame that is required to attach to the padded hooks on the ratcheting arms of the E-Spec.

With this setup, you can transport your Magnum Metro on the 2-inch hitch of your 2020 Lincoln Navigator.
