bike rack

We have a rear bumper mounted spare tire and wheel on our 2005 T-2075. Does anyone know if the bumper will also support a 2 bike rack? rack weighs 41 lbs. 2 adult light weight bikes approx. 10 lb. each.
Thanks,
Sue & Bob

I just answered this question for someone else last week here on SOC.

The bumpers can only hold 100# max. If you want a bike rack, consider having some kind of mounting fastened directly to the frame, bypassing the bumper

Thanks Steve, We missed your earlier post. We're glad we asked before investing in wrong rack. Maybe look into installing a 2" hitch to TT frame instead, then attach rack to that.

That is a popular solution - install a standard 2" receiver welded or bolted directly to the frame of the TT. Then you can use a standard bike rake that fit's a receiver as well as several other accessories like those little platforms for extra luggage.

It would be my choice of solution if I didn't have the pickup bed available for stuff like bikes.
