Review of the Swagman G10 2-Bike Rack Fat Tire Adapter Kit


Colin: Hey guys. It's Colin here at etrailer. Today, I'm going to take some time to show you guys the Fat Tire Adapter Kit for the Swagman G10 Platform Rack. Now, if you already own the G10 Platform Rack, and you've just recently invested in a fat-tire bike, well, you're going to want a way to carry it on your bike rack without having to invest in a brand new rack. Just more economical to just go ahead and get the adapter kit.So, you can see down here, we have a fat-tire bike loaded. This is going to increase the width of your tire to five inches of a carrying capacity for the bike rack.

However, you do want to keep in mind to still abide by the 45-pound weight limit of the bike rack. With our fat-tire bike up here, we are pretty close to it. This bike comes in at about 43 pounds, so it's just under, so that's going to be able to handle it.You can see the strap is just going to be much longer to get around those bigger wheels. You would still have that rubber space right there sitting on top of our wheel help make sure that this plastic strap doesn't rub up against it too much. With the fat-tire adapter kit, you're not going to lose any functionality of your bike rack, like our tilt-away feature still operates the same way.

Pull the latch, and it tilts away, holds their bike very well, and all the locks are still going to be the same. Nothing really changes with the bike rack.Now, you can see how much longer the strap is for those bigger tires. What's also really neat is that with this fat-tire cradle installed, if for some reason you still have a road bike or a mountain bike you want to take out, you can still use this cradle for it. You can see we have a slot for road bikes. We have the mountain bike sitting in that slot right there.

It's just going to be wider than your standard cradle to allow you to get those five-inch wide tires loaded up.It's going to have the same construction with a powder coat finish to help resist rust and corrosion. We're also still going to be able to adjust it back and forth. Really, the adapter kit is just these two cradles. You just replace the two cradles on whichever side you want to load your fat-tire bike, and then you're all done. This kit is just going to be one set of cradles, one for your front tire, one for your back.If you only got one fat-tire bike to carry, I would advise keeping it at the front of your bike rack closest to the vehicle.

When loading bikes, you just want to make sure you have the heaviest bike loaded first, and chances are if you're carrying a fat-tire bike right here, and you are going to use this other standard set of cradles, it's not going to be heavier than that front bike. If you do have two fat-tire bikes you want to load up, you're going to have to pick up an extra set of these cradles available here at etrailer.Well, thank you all for watching. That's going to do it for our look at the Fat Tire Adapter Kit for the Swagman G10 Bike Rack.
