Love my Kalkhoff Include 8. It is a step-thru, and I do not want to scratch or stress it during transport. Any recommendations? Am considering this: Thule 990XT Doubletrack Platform Bike Hitch Rack

I’m surprised no one has responded.

I found specs on the Thule DoubleTrack Pro, and it’s rated for only 35 lbs per bike.

For ebikes, we sell the Thule T2 Classic, the Thule EasyFold, and the Hollywood Sportrider Ebike.

The T2 clamps the tire, leaving your paint untouched, but it’s not ideal with fenders. The Sportrider needs an adapter for step-throughs. The EasyFold doesn’t fold up against the back of the vehicle, but it goes on and for off the vehicle easily, so we recommend it for people who want to keep the rack in their garage and only put it on when you need it.

Do yourself a favor and at least have a look at the 1up platform rack https://www.1up-usa.com/
It is very high quality all metal with no plastic parts that will eventually break, and is very easy to use and secure. I used my today and it is a joy to use a very well engineered product.
