Recommended Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack For 700 Series Ebike With Fenders


Hello, I have an ebike from Ride 1up. Few questions: - I need a single 2” bike rack which can hold my ebike ~65-70lbs - I need to make sure it can fit over a front wheel which has fenders.

I have a solution for you, however, a wheel mount bike rack such as the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo 1 Bike Platform # RKY10007 will not be a good option since your step-thru ebike has fenders. Instead, I recommend looking into a frame-mount bike rack such as the Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches # Y36FR. This uses an adjustable padded clamp to grab onto the bikes frame and the weight capacity is 66lbs per bike; I looked up your 700 series ebike and it looks like it weighs about 62lbs so this rack would work well. You can also remove the battery pack to help reduce the weight if necessary.

A really neat feature of this carrier is the included ramp which allows for easy loading or unloading bikes. This bike rack does hold 2 bikes which will come in handy if you ever have another rider with you. There are not any suitable 1-bike carriers for your application. Locks are included with the Yakima OnRamp so your bikes and bike rack will always be secured to your vehicle. I attached a demonstration video for you.
