Single arm bike carrier designed to fit race, mountain or touring bikes
This hitch-mounted four-bike rack fits 1.25- or two-inch hitch receivers, with a single arm design that accepts race, mountain, or touring bikes. A "no-wobble" threaded hitch pin prevents rack sway, while rubber extrusion prevents damage to your bikes' frames. Bikes with top tubes up to 2.5 inches in diameter easily fit into the rack's receiver slots, and the device tilts down for easy access to the rear of your vehicle when not in use. A locking kit, sold separately, is also available.
In all, the basket offers an impressive combination of design, durability, and affordability when you need to safely transport your bikes from point A to point B.
Located in Granby, Quebec SportRack started manufacturing automotive ski racks in 1980. The company's early focus on "easy-on/easy-off" products has led to a product line featuring an array of multi-sport roof rack systems and accessories, hitch-mounted products, cargo boxes, and trunk-mounted racks.

-Works with 1.25 inch or 2 inch hitch
-Secures the bike very well
-You can purchase a locking knob for security!!!! You do not have to worry as much about your bikes if you make a stop while traveling. SportRack Locking Knob for Hitch and Drive
-Some simple assembly required
-Directions for assembly not great but can figure them out.
-Must unscrew the mount that holds the bikes, not as easy as most carriers, but I think it is a very minor inconveinence, because you can add the locking knob for security.
Overall I am happy with this purchase and I am looking forward to stopping on the road when I want and not having to worry about someone walking off with my bicycles.
1. The design of the hitch mount that lets you use 2" or 1.25" receivers makes the rack cumbersome to install.
2. The rack uses a threaded bolt, instead of a hitch pin, to attach to the receive. The bolt is an odd size, so it is impossible to lock the rack to the receiver.
After 1 1/2 years of use, and probably about 2,000 miles of mostly highway driving carrying 1 or 2 adult bikes plus 2 kids bikes, I can say that it is NOT a good rack.
- Anything other than a standard mens bike requires some creative mounting which seems precarious at the best of times
- No matter how tight you install it in the receiver, it sways at speed, and is distracting in the rear view mirror.
- the bikes move in the cradle unless they are at a precisely 90 degree angle to the road, requiring you to purchase cross bars for kids, ladies, or suspension bikes
- the 2" adapter is plastic and compresses over time, causing the rack to sag in the hitch
- the screw down plates are not strong and have bent over time - this I think was caused by carrying an uneven number of bikes at times, which led to uneven tightening on of the plates (see pic and you will know what I mean)
- the rack itself is now starting to bend - why I have no idea as I NEVER exceeded the weight limit - and I will have to replace it.
Sportrack is made by thule and typically make good products. I have a roof box from them that had 5000 miles on it carrying skiis etc and is like new. But this rack is garbage, and it almost seems engineered to fail right after the 1 year warranty is up.
Don't cheap out and get yourself a good rack unless this is just for short trips. Next one will be Yakima, Swagman or high end Thule...and one designed specifically for 2" receivers.
