For carrying 4 bikes you won't find a more durable bike carrier than this 4 bike carrier. Built from durable powder coated steel, this carrier is built to safely handle the load! The unique 4 point tie down system secures bikes to the frame using strong velcro straps. For use with all Class II, III and IV - 1-1/4" and 2" receivers.
The steel 4 bike rack transports up to 4 bicycles at a time. An adjustable down tube tower and wheel mounts ensure a proper fit for bicycles of many different sizes. Bicycle tie down straps are included. Compatible with Class II or III hitch receivers.
Our 4 bicycle rack is a safe, secure way to transport up to 4 bicycles. Each bike secures to the rack with (3) 18" tie down straps; 2 straps are used to secure each bike wheel to one of the wheel mounts, adjustable from 30" to 47", and 1 secures the frame of the bike to the center down tube tower. Used to keep bikes stable on the hitch mounted bicycle rack, the center down tube towers are each 24" tall and adjustable, making it easy to tie bikes of any size to them. Two additional 12' tie down straps each wrap around 2 of the bikes, providing an extra measure of security.
In addition to keeping bikes on the 4 bicycle rack stable, the rack helps prevent scratches or damage. The stability of the bicycle rack keeps bikes from moving or swaying, helping prevent them from coming into contact or rubbing against one another. To prevent damage to the bicycle frames, each center down tube of the hitch mounted bicycle rack features a soft foam padding covering nearly the entire surface.
For times when only 1 or 2 bikes need to be carried, the 4 bicycle carrier easily converts to a 2 bicycle carrier by removing the included extension. When not carrying any bicycles, the center down tube towers on this 4 bike rack can fold down flat, and the entire rack folds up for storage in the home or garage, or to reduce the length when left on the car. A one year warranty is included with every Trekker 4 bicycle rack.
First of importance for me is the ability to carry 4 bikes on a car with a 1-1/4" hitch. Hitch manufacturers do not make a 2" hitch for my car. This is the only 4 bike carrier I found that fits on a 1-1/4" hitch. This is a very well made product and has very good assembly instructions. Took about 1 hour to assemble. Where the hitch mount fits into the hitch on the car. there is a securing bolt provided which goes where the pin would normally go. The securing bolt makes the rack much more stable than would be with just a pin, this is especially important on the 1-1/4" hitch as the smaller tube size would let the carrier wobble a lot more than you would have with a 2" tube fitting. I have 4 bikes, 3 different sizes. I have 2 men's bikes, 1 ladies' bike, and 1 junior size girls bike. This rack adjusts perfectly for all of the bikes. I have a full size 4 door sedan, the rack fits perfectly and when the rack is folded to the upright position, I can open and access the trunk just fine.
I bought it in 2015 summer after comparing the design and cost. I had to carry four different bikes including women's and kid's without the straight horizontal frames/bars. The best way to carry all different bikes is supporting them from tires. This rack provides the support from tires with adjustable tire holders. It saves me a lot of money to buy four bike adapter bars and it is very robust by fastening on bike frames and tires.
This is an excellent bike rack. It is easy to use and works well. I would highly recommend it.
