    Hitch Mount 2 Bike Tray Rack - Road Bike to Fat Bike

    I just mounted a 1.25" tow hitch on my Prius. I put my Thule T2 on the car using a step up adapter for the 2" hitch. It sits too low and far out for my liking. One option is to buy an adapter with a 4" or 5" rise (another $50), but the rack will still stick out pretty far. I am considering getting a whole new rack with a dedicated 1.25" hitch. I would like a rack that could carry everything from a road bike to a fat bike. I like the One Up rack, but it says max tire size is 3.5". Any suggestions for what might work best.

    If this question has been previously answered please feel free to embed a link and chastise me for being lazy and not bothering to search.

    Thanks,

    UNT

    you could have a adapter made that gave you the height but not the length. Might cost you bit more than $50 but it would be less than buying a new rack. Thule offers wider trays no?
