Review of the Swagman Bike Carrier Wheel Hoop Knob and Bolt Replacement


Hey there Swagman owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the replacement wheel hoop for your Swagman XC bike rack. Now, we don't like to think about it, but accidents do happen. It's entirely possible you backed into something with your bike rack in place, and now your wheel hoop is bent. In that instance, you're going to want a new one. Sometimes, unfortunately, over time they do get rusty and you don't want any of that rust transferring to your bike.

That's another instance you might want to replace your wheel hoop. The wheel hoop we're looking at today is a direct replacement for that. So rather than investing in a whole new bike rack, you can save yourself some money and just replace your wheel hoop. I'll go ahead and show you how to do that.At the end of your bike rack's arm, there is a set screw here. We want to take that out.

That's what prevents our wheel cradles from sliding all the way off. But once we take it off, no problem. Now we can freely slide off our old wheel cradle. And whichever one you're replacing you'll want to go ahead and slide that one off. And I do want to mention this does come as a quantity of one.

So for as many as you're replacing, go ahead and pick up that many.Then you can take your new hoop and slide it into place. Now it is a direct replacement, but you'll notice the finish on it is different. This is a glossy black powder coat, where this is a matte black powder coat. Swagman did have a design change and the only real difference is the color. It's going to function identically.

It's going to get you down the road just the same. And what you'll want to do once you'd get that in place is re-install your set screw here on the end. Then. You do get new hardware. So you'll get a new handle. That nut is going to line up with the square on the bottom. Place on your flat washer and then your locking handle nut. And this will tighten it down. Just like that, you're ready to get back on the road. You can adjust this for your bike, tighten it down just the same, load up your bikes just the same. And that's going to complete our look at the replacement wheel hoop for your Swagman XC bike rack.
