Has anyone used the back bumper to conect a bycyle rake to the bumper and carry two bycycles? It the bumper strong enough to carry the weight.

Be very careful with the bumper mounted hitches. Some people have no problem with them but my Sunset Trail certainly didn't like one. I had a two bike bumper mounted rack installed and the bumper twisted. It's not the weight of the bikes but the torque they generate with all the bouncing around back there. I know that I am not the only one to experience this.

I have used a two bike carrier on my Cruiser bumper for three years with no problem. It is mounted to the bumper with two 4 inch u-bolt clamps. When the bikes are mounted I put a bunge cord through tires closest to the ladder and secure the bunge to the roof ladder. This helps reduce the torque effect.
