Surco Spare Tire Mounted Bike Rack for 1997 Toyota Rav 4  


About the surco spare tire bike rack. I have a 97 rav 4, will this fit to it, are there any other things to buy before it can be mounted in the spare tire I.e. adoptor etc? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

According to Surco, their # BT300 spare tire-mounted bike rack is compatible with the 1997 Rav 4. Everything necessary to install the rack is included.

If you'll be transporting women's bikes or bikes with sharply-angled top tubes, you might also consider a frame adapter bar like part # 64005. The bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, which provides a secondary attachment point for the bike rack. This allows the bike to be carried level, which maximizes ground clearance.
