Sport Rider Recumbent Hitch Bike Rack
This rack is well designed. It assembles easy and comes with the tools needed. The folding actions are logical with clever locking pins to keep it in place. There seems to be no cost cutting on the solid steel construction, even the smaller parts like the pins and bolts feel like military grade components. I carry a Haluzak Horizon SWB and a custom built Ryan LWB, and this rack seems like it was made specifically for me. From stored to bikes loaded and ready to go is less than five minutes. Even less time to mount and dismount the bikes. You can do both in about 20 seconds. I connect the rack to a Land Rover LR4 and I was concerned the wide seats and handle bars of the bikes would hit the back door. Not so. There is plenty of room. When the bikes are removed and the rack is folded up, I still have access to the back of the LR4. When not in use, the bikes are stored by hanging by the rear tires on hooks from the ceiling. The rack hangs the same way using very little space. Hollywood racks website was easy to navigate and place the order. The rack was delivered on time and well packed.
When you consider you paid $1500 or better for your recumbent bike, you don't want to skimp on a rack to carry it. This rack is not a low end box store rack, but a beautifully designed tool to safely carry your investment.
I have used this rack for 10 years and it has been flawless. The anti-wobble bolt that replaces the hitch pin is great also. I do use a stabilizing strap from the center post to my trunk just to be extra safe. This rack has carried bikes from Wisconsin to Florida and back twice.
