Hollywood Racks has been very progressive in growing many electrical bike racks for autos and the newest addition to their line up is an eCargo bike choice. 

The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE for Cargo Bikes accommodates longer and wider cargo bikes that additionally usually weigh greater than conventional bikes.

This rack can assist eBikes as much as 80 kilos of weight per bike!

That may be 2 eCargo bikes or a wide range of eBike sorts, together with fats tire eBikes. 

The bottom value for the Sport Rider SE for Cargo Bikes is $439.99.

A superb take a look at of the Sport Rider SE for Cargo Bikes was hauling the Xtracycle Edgerunner electric cargo bike with the large U Tube decrease rails and the Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC SL eMTB.

The Edgerunner as it’s arrange weighs 68.3 kilos and the Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC SL as it’s arrange weighs 55.5 kilos. That may be a whole of 123.8 kilos.

The rack itself weighs 51.8 kilos on this overview.

The rack held these 2 eBikes properly with minimal motion and loads of that’s attributed to the “No Wobble” system that we’ll take a look at in a bit. 

On this view you’ll be able to see that even with the U Tube decrease rails on the Xtracycle cargo bike it nonetheless has loads of room between the Dice eMTB.

This rack is flexible with the flexibility to hold all kinds of eBikes that embrace eCargo bikes, plus measurement tire eBikes (3″ tire width), fats bike tire (5″ tire width) eBikes, and conventionally sized eBikes. 

There are wheel holder width choices out there when ordering the rack.

One other testomony to the power of this rack is the way it is ready to tilt again to open the rear hatch of the automotive whereas supporting as much as 160 kilos of whole bike weight.

I discovered that pushing up a bit of on the bikes helped to unload the pin that’s eliminated to permit the lean perform of the rack. 

It is a view of the rack system tilted again after the snapper pin has been eliminated and the entrance spring pin has been retracted.

The entrance and rear spring pins lock the rack into the completely different positions: folded place, carrying place, and tilted place. 

Here’s a take a look at the rack within the folded place. It’s straightforward and fast to rotate the rack into the folded place utilizing the spring pin system. 

Listed below are among the dimensions equipped by Hollywood Racks: 

The Sport Rider SE options the “No Wobble System” which is good as a result of some hitch mounted racks generally tend to wobble.

It is a easy and fast system to arrange and tighten for stable attachment. The video beneath demonstrates the way it works.  

The “No Wobble System” works properly and gives a stable attachment of the rack to the car. When driving round with each bikes the rack felt very secure and safe. 

As you’ll be able to see within the video the locking system can also be constructed into the hitch pin. The identical secret is used for all locking methods on the rack. 

The highest tube of the bike is supported by the hook clamp that stabilizes the bike on the rack.

When you’ve got a motorcycle with a step through body Hollywood Racks sells an adapter that gives a digital high tube for the hook to safe the bike. 

The hook clamps ratchet alongside a vertical publish between the bikes and every have a locking mechanism that makes use of the identical key for the hitch pin and cable lock that comes with the rack. 

The wheel holders for this rack have been structurally strengthened to hold the additional weight of an eBike. There are wheel holders out there for fats tire bikes with tires as much as 5″ large. 

Every wheel holder has an adjustment knob to maneuver the wheel holder alongside the wheel assist tube.

It’s a good suggestion to set the wheel holder place earlier than loading the bike on the rack as a result of with the additional weight of an eBike it’s considerably tough to maneuver the wheel holder after the bike is on the rack.

Hollywood Racks recommends eradicating the battery from the bike to make loading onto the rack simpler and that can assist with shifting the wheel holders if wanted. 

Additionally they suggest putting the entrance wheel within the wheel holder first after which lifting the again of the bike and putting the rear wheel to keep away from selecting up your entire bike at one time. It does make loading an eBike simpler.

The wheel strapping system is a reasonably primary velcro system that does the job of holding every wheel in place.

The 8 foot cable lock that comes with the rack makes use of the identical key that’s used for the hook clamps and hitch pin locks. 

The cable lock is nice for securing the wheels and body to the rack.
