What Bike Rack do You Recommend for Transporting 2 Occasional Bikes?


Can I use swagman XC2 Bike Rack # S64650 with my Mazda CX-9 and connect # S64663 to extend capacity to 4 bikes? I already have # S64663 but need to add 2 more bikes occasionally. Thanks.

I have an answer for you. Unfortunately, there is no way to connect the Swagman XC2 Bike Rack # S64650 to your Swagman Traveler XC2 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers # S64663. Swagman also does not make any 2-bike extensions that are compatible with your # S64663.

For the easiest route, I recommend keeping your # S64663 and purchasing the SeaSucker Mini Bomber Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - Fork Mount - Vacuum Cup Mount # 298-BM2006 for when you have to transport those 2 additional bikes. The Mini Bomber mounts effectively to the roof of your Mazda CX-9 and does not interfere with the XC2. I attached a demo video that shows the true strength of the SeaSucker vacuum cups. This rack fits 9-mm thru-axles for a fork-mount attachment style. If the 2 additional bikes happen to have different fork dimensions, there are many adapters available to use the Mini Bomber. I went ahead and attached a product page that lists them. The product page also has them listed as well.

For theft deterrence of the Mini Bomber, I recommend the etrailer Cable Lock # e98891 along with the SeaSucker Cable Anchor # 298-BA0010.
