Bike Rack Recommendation for 55 lb e-Bikes


Need this rack to hold 2 E-bikes weighing 55 lbs/each I really like this tongue hitch bike rack to carry our E-bikes, but the weight ouf our bikes are too much. What do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

The Jack-It 2 Bike Rack # LC429756 can only handle up to 40 lb bikes and this will be the case for any bike rack that installs in this manner. For your heavier e-bikes you'll want to install a hitch on the back of your 2020 R-Pod and use a platform style rack rated for your heavy bikes.

For a hitch you can use the Curt # C13704 which mounts to the frame or the Curt # E-100 which mounts around a 4x4 bumper.

If you like the style of the Jack-It then you might like the Lets Go Aero V-Lectric FAT PRO Bike Rack # LGA77FR which can handle 75 lb bikes but this rack weighs in at 75 lbs because of the sliding feature on the frame of the rack. If you'd like something lighter we have the Swagman E-Spec # S94FR which is 60 lbs but can still hold 70 lb bikes and it uses more of the traditional frame mount style.

Attached are some review videos for you to check out.
