Brands:Brand: Hollywood Racks
The updated 2019 Sport Rider SE2 is a heavy duty 2 bike hitch rack that will fit almost any style of bike using a new universal locking frame hooks and adjustable wheel holders. Simply drop the bike into the wheel holders, then slide the ratcheting locking hook down onto the frame to secure the bike. Features patented "No Wobble-no tools" hitch tightening system, a locking hitch pin, which is keyed alike to the frame hooks and a security cable. Folds flat against the car when not in use and tilts down for easy cargo door access. For 2" hitches only.
This rack is very well designed, with a heavy duty construction. I was torn between buying this or the cheaper and well-received Swagman XC. I've used a Swagman XC in the past, so I knew what it was like. If you have a vehicle with a 2" receiver, I highly recommend that you get this rack.
Easy to assemble and adjust; mostly steel and aluminum parts, but the sliding hooks to hold the frames upright have a plastic component. I have bikes with different wheel bases, but adjusting the rack is simple. The hooks fold down and the platform folds up toward the vehicle when not in use, so it doesn't stick out much. With the hooks down and the tires strapped into their metal loops, the bikes are securely attached to the rack. Speed bumps (at low speeds) and normal driving don't jostle or throw the bikes around; they're secure. The best part is the hitch -- no tools necessary! A slotted sleeve inside the hitch is screwed forward with a lever in the back so that it wedges itself against the hitch pin. The rack is then rock solid and stays that way. To release, simply turn the lever counter-clockwise and the hitch pin can be unlocked and slid free. No ratchet wrench necessary! Makes getting it on and off a breeze.
The instructions are poor at best, but there are not a lot of parts and it took about an hour to assemble. Have used it twice at highway speeds and the bikes simply do not move. The tightening mechanism is a genius invention. Women’s bikes are a challenge, but proper adjustment and you are ready to go . I store the rack in the garage. It takes exactly 10 minutes to mount the rack to the car and load and secure two bikes. Unload in about two minutes. Best rack for the money
I've been using this for several weeks now, and I'm still really, really impressed with this rack. It is, by far, the easiest to load and most solid of the half dozen racks I looked at closely. It is a bit on the heavy side, what do you expect for a 2" rack; that is a big part of why it is so wobble free.
Easy to assemble. It fits into the hitch and tightens against the lock pin so the fit is tight, no "clunking" over bumps. My only problems were lifting the vertical pole upright after putting the bike in the forward position - the pole would often hit the pedal so get used to putting the pedal in the correct position first and the locking hooks would get caught in the wheel where it goes into the wheel troughs. Solved that one by removing the screw that stops the hooks from coming off the pole and only fitting the hook/s as needed after the bike is in position. on short journeys (across town) I use "as is", bike is secure. On long trips (300 miles) I use a ratcheting tie down strap just to make sure the bike doesn't move and the 6+ ft lock cable of course. I recommend this over the cheaper non-tilting model as my Xterra back door will not open without tilting from the folded position.
Decidí comprar esta marca debido a los buenos comentarios que encontré en sitios especializados en este tipo de productos. Lo que mas me ha gustado es: la calidad de los materiales, su sólida construccion, el mecanisno que fija el rack al tirón y que a la vez evita ruidos molestos, el poco espacio que ocupa cuando está retraído.
