    best hitch mounted rack for 49" wheelbase

    I'm considering a 2018 Specialized Enduro 29er in XL. It has a 49" wheelbase. I have had many 1up racks overs the years, but would like to try something different. I was researching the Kuat Envy 2.0 and the Thule T2 pro XT, but both seem to max out at a 48" wheelbase. What other options do I have for a quality hitch mounted rack for a bike with such a long wheelbase? Thanks!

    I was watching bike rack reviews on YouTube and at least 1 person said the max wheelbase was 48", but I just dug a little deeper and downloaded the user manual and they say 50.5". I may be in business with this rack.

    I had to modify my thule 958ss . Even xL bikes dragged the road. Sucks but it's done now.

    You can get a long wheelbase bar for the Saris Freedom series of racks.
