The Compact 2-Bike Hitch Rack is an awesome bike carrier that folds down to take up almost no space. This is a well engineered and well thought out bike rack that makes transporting your bikes easy and stress free. The rack holds your bikes steady through the use of a center support arm and contoured wheel wells. In the middle of this rack is a U-shaped center support arm that is used to secure your bike's frame. It can easily fold up and down to allow you to fold the entire assembly tight against the back of your vehicle. The contoured wheel wells provide a 4-point contact system that is used to keep your bike from moving around. Provided with the rack are (6) 18" tie down straps that let you secure your bike tires tightly to the wheel wells. Additionally, there is one 12ft tie down strap included that you can use to wrap around all both your bikes and the rack for extra peace of mind.
This bike rack is a "tray" or "tire mount" style hitch mount bike rack which makes it fairly unique in the world of hitch mount bike racks. This tire mount style rack supports your bike from underneath the tires as opposed to from the bike's frame. This style of bike carrier offers a few advantages. First off, most people find them easier to use because there is no delicate balancing act required to get your bike put in place - you simply just drop it into the wheel slots. The other advantage to a tray or tire mount style hitch rack is that it can accommodate a wider variety of bike types. Frame style carriers sometimes only work with bikes that have a straight upper frame tube, but the wheel mount style can hold more than that. Beach cruisers, women's bikes, and many other different bikes have slanted or curved upper frames which make them a pain to get in a frame style carrier.
This 2-Bike rack is super compact! Take a look at the photos and see how tightly this rack can fold up. This makes it convenient to leave on your car because you don't have some big piece of metal protruding far out of the back of your car or truck. Additionally, it is light enough and folds up small enough that it is easy to remove and stow away in your garage or home.
