Review of the Curt Platform Bike Rack Fat Bike Adapter Kit


Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Fat Bike Adapter Kit for Curt platform bike racks, part number C18091. This kit is going to allow you to take your Curt two or four platform style bike rack and adapt it to carry fat tire bikes. It comes with two cradles that will carry a tire up to 4 7/8 inches wide. It's going to replace your existing cradles, but hang on to these because you can easily swap them when not carry fat tire bikes. It has the same finish and style as our existing bike rack, so it's going to fit in seamlessly. Now that we've got all the features, I'll go ahead and show you how easy these are to get installed.

Now, you're going to get two cradles per kit. You want to be sure and pick up one kit for each fat tire bike you have. First thing we can do is go ahead and loosen up our standard bike cradle. We're going to slide that off, then we'll take our fat bike cradle, be sure that it's loosened up, then we'll slide it on to however the size of our wheelbase is, and then tighten it up. For the opposite side, it's not a bad idea to stagger your cradles. That way, one set of cradles is not trapped on the inside.

Now, loading up our fat tire bike is just as easy as loading up a regular bike. We'll just set it in the cradles and then lower down our center hook. Great. Now, we can just load the rest of our bikes the way we normally would. That's going to complete our look at the Curt Fat Bike Adapter Kit for Curt platform bike racks, part number C18091..
