Spare Tire Bike Carrier for a 2003 Honda CR-V

Question:

I need to be able to commute with my womens bicycle ie no crossbar. My 2003 Honda CR-V spare tire has the stock vinyl ? cover on it. Will this rack still fit securely, be difficult to steal once installed and accommodate my style of bike?

Helpful Expert Reply:

The Hollywood Racks spare tire bike rack # HRSR1 is only going to work with the cover removed from the spare tire on your 2003 Honda CR-V.

If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.
