No issues with swing out with the bike loaded but I am running two hitches mounted to each side of the frame rails. Bike is apprx. 230ish lbs. Carrier is 200ish lbs. Probably had another 500 lbs in the bed. The hinge is built out of 2-3/4"x3/8" DOM with bronze bushings and a 1-1/2" dia. Grade 8 bolt. Square tubing is HSS4x4x1/4 because that is what I had on hand. A little more info on it below if you are interested, copying pasting from another forum out of laziness.love the bike rack. what kind of weight are you carrying? no problems with the swing out while the bike is loaded?
Your wheel bearings will welcome less offset.Thanks. They don't fit cleanly at all. Unless your driving straight, no sharp curves and no backing up. LOL. I went way to aggressive in size and offset. Scrubs bad. I've got to address that soon. I love the look and I've never been called practical.
