What Trunk Bike Rack do You Recommend for My 2022 Range Rover Sport for a Fat-Tire Bike?


Do you have a trunk bike rack that can hold a fat-tire bike a few pounds over 35 pounds for a 2022 Range Rover Sport?


Expert Reply:

The only trunk bike rack we have available that can support a fat-tire bike over 35 pounds on your 2022 Range Rover Sport is the SeaSucker Komodo. This rack comes in a variety of colors:

- aqua blue # 298-BK1910-AB
- black # 298-BK1910-BK
- silver # 298-BK1910-SV
- gold # 298-BK1910-GO

The Komodo is compatible with bikes with 9mm thru-axles and also comes with a 12-mm x 100-mm thru-axle plug adapter. It comes with a 45-pound per-bike weight capacity and attaches right onto the trunk of your vehicle. Like all other SeaSucker accessories, the Komodo comes with the quickest installation and removal process of any of our products. I went ahead and attached a video that shows the true strength of SeaSucker vacuum cups.

As far as theft-deterrence, I recommend the SeaSucker Cable Anchor for Cable Lock - Trunk Mounted # 298-BA0020 etrailer Cable Lock - 10' Long - 5/16" Diameter - Steel - Keyed Alike # e98891.

If, however, you want to go another route, you can always go with a hitch-mounted option. For a great bike rack that can hold fat-tired bikes up to 4.81 inches wide, I recommend the Yakima SingleSpeed Bike Rack for 1 Bike - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # Y02481. The SingleSpeed has a 40-pound weight capacity and comes loaded with same-key locks that help prevent your bike and the rack itself. If you happen to already have a hitch installed, I recommend measuring the center of the pinhole to the outside face of your spare bumper. If that measurement is less than 7-1/4", you will not have any bumper clearance issues with the SingleSpeed.

For a compatible hitch receiver for the SingleSpeed, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13243 along with the Curt stabilizing straps # 18050 for the bike. It is important to note that this hitch is only designed for non-Hybrid models and you will not be able to store a full-sized spare tire with this hitch installed.
