a. The wheel/tire holder support tubes are longer to support the longer wheelbase on most recumbents (up to 72”).

b. The wheel/tire holders are set further away from the support tubes (4” additional on each side) to provide room for the wider seats/saddles on most recumbents.

c. Because the wheel/tire holders are set further out, the padded hooks also extend an additional 4” on either side.

d. These recumbent rack differences are applicable to both the HR1000Y-R and HR1450Y-R racks.

  1. On an HR200 Trail Rider the wheel/tire holder support arms fold up (vertically when the rack is not being used). The HR200 cannot fold horizontally.
  2. On an HR1000Y the whole rack folds up horizontally (against the vehicle) or down horizontally to access the luggage compartment of the vehicle.

What about hitch pins on older racks?

Older threaded hitch pin racks (before 2004) use a ½ x 20 Threads Per Inch hitch pin. Visual Clue: Look at the 45-degree angle brace between the horizontal and vertical tubes that make up the receiver tube.  If there is a small hole right in the middle of that brace, the rack is threaded ½ x 13.  If there is no hole in the brace, the rack is threaded ½ x 20 Threads Per Inch.
