    Reliable hitch rack adapter?

    I had a Bonneville with an aftermarket hitch for my 1 1/4" bike rack. I now have a Chevy Colorado with a built-in 2" receiver. The bike rack I have is just fine, but of course it doesn't fit in the 2" receiver. I bought an adapter, but it was way too sloppy. Is there a good adapter that will hold tight for a 2" receiver and 1 1/4" bike rack post?

    IMO, there is no such thing. Best you can do is get a threaded locking hitch pin.

    The one I tried was too small to fit snugly in the receiver, and it was just too sloppy. Really hate to have to get rid of the rack. Maybe my husband can make something? ugh.
