Hitch Mounted Bike Rack For Two RadCity ST3 's On A 2016 Honda HR-V

Question:

Looking for advice on a bike rack to carry 2 RadCity STs on our 2016 Honda HRV. Obviously, RadPower recommends the never available Hollywood rack, but were looking for something a little more affordable and available. Were currently looking at the Swagman Current. Would this be an option? And any advice on hitches would be much appreciated!

The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 2 Electric Cargo Bikes # HR1450Z-W is the ideal option due to their ability to carry up to 80lbs per bike.

The Swagman Current Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # S64678 would work great as an alternative for your two RadCity ST3 bikes. If you remove the 7lbs batteries from the bikes you will be at 116lbs and would put your bikes 4 pounds under the maximum rating for this rack.

Additionally you will need to use the Swagman Bike Frame Adapter Bar # S57FR to create a higher top tube so the hooks on your platform-style rack can grip your electric bikes.

Finally my hitch recommendation for your 2016 Honda HR-V the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11416 is a great option and will work with the all wheel drive and front wheel drive models.
