Solution On How You Can Transport Two 50-lb E-Bikes And 2 Kayaks At Once  


Hello, We like your Malone MicroSport Trailer. Our kayaks would fit easily on the frame, however, we have 2 e-bikes, which weigh just under 50 pounds each. The specs on this trailer only allows a 33 pound fat tire bike. What are our options to accommodate two 50 pound e-bikes?


Helpful Expert Reply:

Realistically, your best option is to use a hitch mounted bike rack like the Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH83JV. This bike rack can accommodate up to 60-lbs per bike, and can carry 2-electric bikes with a maximum tire width of 5".

Now, since you wanted to also carry your kayaks, we have a few solutions that you can accomplish this.

Instead of using the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG461KB you referenced, I would instead, go with a roof rack, like the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2, and then two sets of the etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier # e98878.

If you let me know what you year make and model is I can see if we have an set of crossbars for you.

Alternatively, if the load carrying capacity of your two kayaks will be too heavy for your vehicle, you could also still use the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG461KB and the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202, you will just need to use a hitch adapter # D210. This way will allow you to tow your kayaks on the trailer, and still carry your two E-Bikes.
