We were watching my 5 Y.O. daughter at her BMX race and struck up a conversation with another parent. This gentleman, designed and patented an awesome self-loading bike rack the is perfect for e-bikes. I was very impressed.

You can find some more information here at https://bikeerack.com/

Video of it in action here

Much like WW, he is a small family company just planting its roots.
The pricing is:
$2450 CAD - 2 bike system
$2800 CAD - 4 bike system

2 year warranty, but it is built to last!

*Disclaimer - I don`t work for him, nor am I receiving anything for promotions or sales. I`m just helping a fellow local father out. I own a North Shore Rack NS6

If there are a number of members here interested, then I could talk to him about a discount?? Like a bulk buy??

It is interesting. I went to the site hoping to see more, like the bikes in position to drive away and security measures and locks. I was curious to see these things and how it might look on my pickup truck. Hopefully more videos and info are coming to the site.

Best of luck to the company!

I love it when people come up with new and innovative ideas, such as this powered bike rack. As a fellow British Columbian I wish him the best of luck and many sales.

I wonder what the weight limit is.

Edit: just looked at the photos.....that rack looks heavy duty. 👍

It is a little more than I would want to spend on a rack, but I can see how this would be a game changer for people who have difficulty lifting a heavy ebike.

Not sure I want my expensive heavy EBike hanging by the front wheel like that.
It won't hurt it. The wheel is designed to take a lot more weight than that while you are riding it. Although I would strap it to the rack by both wheels so that it doesn't bounce.

If there was something like this for my van I would already have it , very cool . it needs to bring them and hold in place while driving.

No way would I want to place all the weight on the front tire. Not even a step at the bottom of the rear tire to take some of the weight. What about the side to side motion when turning a corner, all the stress goes against the tire or rim side?
Bikes don't seem to be perpendicular to the ground. Top support bar is centered on rack and the bottom is offset to the right. I guess so the handlebars don't clash?
I thought my Thule at $550 was steep. Not for me. Thinking outside the box for sure.
