Recommended 4 Bike Platform Bike Rack for Adult and Child Bikes  


Hello, I am looking for a platform bike rack that will accommodate 4 bikes ranging from a adults bike down to a young childs bike. Would you have any suggestions? Thank you

Yes, I would be happy to make a suggestion for you. Since you have a wide range of style and sizes of bikes I recommend the Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 4 Bikes item # SA4414B.

The Saris Freedom fits a 2" receiver and has a 60 lbs capacity per bike on the inner two holders and a 35 lbs capacity per bike on the outer two holders. The wheel mounts can slide the length of the frame to accommodate wheel bases up to 48" wide. The rubber cradles will adjust up and down to secure any size bike by the frame.

This bike rack also has a tilting function that works when the rack is loaded as well. This function should allow you to access your trunk or rear cargo area without having to remove the bikes.

I have linked a review video below.

If any of your bikes have fat tires you will need the Fat Tire Adapter Kit for Saris Freedom Bike Racks item # SA4419. This adapter works with tires up to 5" wide.

The Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 4 Fat Bikes item # SA4414B-FB you were looking at has four fat tire wheel holders. Unless you are hauling multiple fat tire bikes it is a better option to just buy the adapter.
