Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Subaru Crosstrek for 75 lb E-Bike


Hello, I just bought an electric bike that weighs 75 pounds and I want to buy a bike rack to use it on my 2019 Subaru Crosstrek car, the question is this bike rack is good for carrying my bike. And I would also like to know if they sell the upper strap that is needed. Thank you


Expert Reply:

For an e-bike that weighs 75 lbs you will need to go with a hitch mounted bike rack as there aren't any trunk mounted bike racks that have enough weight capacity. Most trunk racks have a 35 lb weight capacity.

So with a hitch installed on your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek like the etrailer # e98912 you'd need to use an e-bike rack like the Hollywood Racks RV Rider part # HLY64FR which is only option that has a high enough weight capacity at 80 lb per bike.
