2ez HITCH PLATFORM SYSTEM
A hitch-mounted carrier that holds two bikes, this rack is ideal for outdoor-loving families.
In all, the rack 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.
Top Customer Reviews
My main reasons in initially purchasing this particular rack were (1) price and (2) fit for my vehicle. I own a Jeep Wrangler with an oversized wide tire mounted to the back. This bike rack extends out far enough to comfortably fit onto my Jeep with enough clearance between my bike and the spare tire. I was also in the price range that I was looking for, which was a big plus.
I ride mainly on the weekends and travel between 15 - 30 miles for most tracks I go to. This is a mixture of city, country and even interstate driving. The SportRack has held up very well through it all. I am extremely happy with my purchase and would suggest it to be on anyone's prospective buy list. I would have given it 5 stars except for the fact that the fit for the 2 inch hitch adapter could be better. There is a little more movement of the rack due to the hitch fit than I would like. I still feel it is sturdy and I trust it to hold my bike, plus sometimes another, with no real concern or worry. Most of the extra movement comes from driving over speed bumps, uneven surfaces, etc... at slow speeds. I do utilize a bungee cord through my spare and around the rack for extra support.
So, the 'goods': Price, fit, durability, ease of use and adjustability for different sized bikes. Lastly, I like the screw on bolt for the hitch. It adds an extra level of security as far as possible theft and you can purchase a small lock to attach to it, if you want...
The 'bads': 2" hitch attachment fits somewhat loosely in my receiver.
The 'ugly': Nothing really. There are two bolts that attach the actual rack to the hitch portion and you need to LocTite them before use. They will loosen over time and I could see them loosening to the point of the rack coming apart. I almost learned that the hard way...
Thanks for reading-
The rack does exactly what I needed. Unfortunately, due to packaging/handling problems, a tiny, but important part was damaged...two such instances. Since I only need to transport a single bike, I was able to do some interchanging of parts and I could use it. HOWEVER, trying to get that small part was impossible. The supplier/manufacturer was not at all helpful. They told Amazon that they only offered customer service two days a week! Unbelievable. Then, when they were reachable, they refused to supply the part, thus making Amazon ship me a second full unit so that I could cannibalize that unit to fix the initial problem unit.
This was a disaster for Amazon, who as usual, did an excellent job of taking care of the problem. Kuddos for that....but the fact that the solution was so convoluted resulted in the low rating. There are similar products, from different manufacturers, readily available. Use them!
The arms which raise and lower to secure the bikes when in place, are simply clamps on a metal arm. They slide, or at least are supposed to. It takes an effort to get them to work...and cussing. More expensive models of this design rack use a ratcheting system that works much better. When the platforms are flipped up, in the stowing position, the very same arms that refuse to budge when down, invariably slide out of place. This is a fact you will discover when you next try to put a bike in place. The bike wheels will no longer rest in the platform correctly. So, you wind up putting the bike down and trying to get the platform to slide back to the correct position for your bike. A giant rubber mallet is helpful at this point. There are turn knobs which are supposed to lock the platform in the correct adjustment for your bikes, but I'm fairly sure that they are simply a prop to make you fell like you've done something by turning them.
My advice is to just break down and get a more well-known model for a few more bucks. Just saying.
