View Full Version : Bumper mounted bike rack

:lightbulb:Does anyone have any suggestions about bumper mounted bike racks? We have a 2011 Eagle HT 265RLS and want to carry 2 bikes. We don't have a ladder so we can't do that and there is no receiver on the bumper either. Any suggestions are welcome!

Don't recommend it. Your warranty likely won't be happy with it either. Not sure about your model, but most of the new TT bumpers are not strong enough to handle the weight of a bike rack, believe it or not. The weight of the bikes & the bouncing around will eventually give you problems. Suggest you take a look in your manual and if there's nothing in there, talk to your dealer about installing a good solid receiver to your frame. My thoughts, anyway! Good luck & welcome to the forum!

As stated your manual should tell you how much weight your bumper can handle, mine said 100lbs.
