Ebike on a Yakima Rack

Postby JoeClark » Thu 21 Sep,2017 05:54

Hi everyone,

I have a Yakima LiteRider 3-bike hanging rack that is attached to a 2-inch receiver on my 2013 Nissan Rogue. The rack is rated to carry 3 bikes @ 35 pounds each, and for the past 2 years it's been hauling my Trek FX 7.2 fitness bike. I'm looking at purchasing an ebike to add to my collection and the models I've been looking at range between 50-60 pounds. I'm the only one that rides in my family so I only transport one bike at a time. Assuming my Yakima rack's max capability is 105 pounds (3 bikes x 35 pounds each), can I transport my ebike on this same rack? Even with a 60-pound ebike, I'm 45 pounds under the Yakima's max.

I would only be transporting the ebike a short distance (< 8 miles) in the event of a mechanical failure during my weekday commute, and I really hate to invest $500 in another bike rack.

Thanks in advance for the feedback.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
