What is the Best Bike Rack for a Fat Tire Bike


Hello, I have a Swagman XC2 but my fat bike tires do not fit in the OEM cradles. Does your company offer any suggestions for aftermarket or alternative cradles? Cheers


Expert Reply:

I have a few bike racks that have fat tire wheel cradles, but, there are no adapters or alternative cradles that will work with the Swagman XC bike rack to accommodate wider tires.

The bike racks I recommend for customers that have downhill bikes or bikes with fat tires is the Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack, # TH83JV 2-bike rack or the Thule T2 Pro XTR, # TH69TX. These bike racks come with large front and rear wheel cradles to accommodate fat bike tires up to 5 inches wide and Thule is an industry leader in the bike accessory community. The # TH69TX can be set up for 2 bikes or 4 bikes as needed.

Another option would be the more cost effective Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack, # HR1450Z-FB. The wheel hoops on this bike rack can also accept wheels up to 5 inches wide.

This is probably not the information you wanted to hear, but it would be the safest way to transport your bike.
