Recommended 2-Bike Rack for 2007 Acura TL With Draw-Tite Class I Hitch

Question:

I will be ordering a Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver for my 2007 Acura TL, what bike rack would you suggest for 2 bikes?

Expert Reply:

Because the all of the hitches that are compatible with your Acura TL are Class I, like the Draw-Tite # 24755 you referenced, you would need to choose a bike rack that is compatible with a Class I receiver.

Of the many choices (see link), I would recommend the Swagman Trailhead, part # S63360. The Trailhead is both lightweight and strong, and features the ability to tilt away from the vehicle. The Yakima DoubleDown Ace you mentioned is an excellent bike rack, it is unfortunately not compatible with the Class I receiver used by your Acura.

To carry womens bikes or bikes with sharply angled top tubes or step-through frames, using a frame adapter like part # UB01 is recommended. The adapter spans the distance between the seat post and the handle bar gooseneck, and provides a level attachment point to the bike rack so the bike has greater ground clearance and is not carried at an angle.

I have also linked you to some product demonstration videos featuring the rack and the adapter bar I recommended.
