Hollywood Racks Sport Rider ebike Hitch Rack

The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Ebike Hitch Rack states on its production specification that a 1.5” to 2” hitch adapter should not be used. Curious if anyone has done this??​

Taylor 57 has tried this and it didn’t work. It wasn’t a Hollywood rack but very similar.

1.25" receivers have a capacity of 200 lbs. The rack you're talking about weighs 58 lbs. and can carry two 80 lb. bikes, for a total of 218 lbs. Putting a 2" adapter in doesn't help the math, in fact, it makes it worse by pushing the rack and bikes further back, creating a longer arm to for all that weight to bounce up and down on.

People do things and even get away with them for a long time. Until they don't. If you were to do this and the rack broke, sending bikes all over the road causing an accident, you might think you could sue Hollywood, but you'd be the one on the hook for any liability.
