Rides easily. I have a 1 1/4 inch receiver on my Odyssey. Very little movement or sway especially with the hitch tightener. Easy load and unload. Best to lock the rear wheels and pull the handlebars up and put in the front tire and then lift the rear wheel onto the cradle. Holds my 29-inch hardtail, too! Pretty easy and simple to put together. Took some time to get the cradles in the right position so the wheels wouldn't stick out.
Unfortunately i have the 1 1/4" receiver being replace by a 2" that is needed. But so far the service from Hollywood is super. Once i have the 2" ill be able to let you know in how the carrier is working.
Received yesterday installed in about 20 minutes on Ford escape hybrid. Using to carry radwagon three and red city step through. had to purchase the top tube adapter for the red city, definitely not impressed with that product for $35. I can make a better one that fits tight and won’t scratch the paint out of PVC for less than five dollars. Will be returning that. As for the hitch rack, it is definitely well-made solid steel nice finish. Took it for a test drive down the gravel road with potholes and was not impressed with how much the bikes moved but I also knew that this did not have the hitch tightening system that the 2 inch version has. Obviously, you cannot fit that mechanism in an inch and a quarter steel shank and still have the rated capacity. Guess I was hoping for a little bit more stiffness and lateral bracing for $500. First impression good fit and easy install, Just plain expensive. Also had to wait six months for these to come back in stock but that is Covid’s fault not Hollywood racks
I have been using this rack for over 1 year and have great success, easy to load, low to the ground, and very secure. Highly recommend it, I have 2 driven playa express fat tire beach cruisers that weigh over 70lbs each and the rack handles them easily.
The 1 1/4 “ Hollywood E-Bike Rack is a high quality item all components assembled perfect , very pleased with the ease of. Loading and unloading of my E- Bike
