Carl, Glad you started this Post.

We are in the same predicament - some great suggestions so far from others that we had not uncovered in our search - also looking forward to see what you decide.
Do you have the Aluminess bumper with Tire & box ? working around those has been our issue.
Havent purchased our e-bikes yet, but believe we'll do that sometime this April.

***Rented some in Fayetteville West Virginia at an Adventure Resort this past year to see if we would like them - I was amazed...felt like riding my old dirt bike!

Yes, I have 35" tire and Aluminess box which I will need to clear. My thought is to pick the best rack, best swing away, and then use as little or no extension if possible.

Hi. Take a look at the Yakima Spareride, that mounts on the spare tire. It's what I'm going to get, holds two bikes, locks included. There's a Video too, Google it.
Cheers Doug

Carl,
The Kuat swing out carrier is made by Rack Attach. I did a thread on our Rack Attach. Was custom fit to accommodate the Aluminess bumper. No hitch extension needed. It’s a great piece of gear and highly recommended. Recall the weight load being 350 lbs. PM me if you need contact info.

Seems like 130 pounds of e-bike + the spare tire + the rack itself would be a lot to hang off the spare tire mount? Plus the SpareRide is only rated to hold two bikes at 35# each...
