It's sourcing and making all those bits that I don't enjoy much. If there's no chance for 1.25", I will stop bugging you and move along.


I bought a 2" version which is still on my LEAF, even though my bike rack was 1.25". That was easily solved with a small adapter sleeve from Harbor Freight. Go for the 2". :-)

Thanks for the input. I can easily adapt my racks, or the receiver. I just wish not to. I want minimalist. Starting with the larger, heavier 2" and then adding an adapter isn't my "style." :-)

Hmmm... I'm glad it is offered at 2". So easy to adapt to smaller if necessary.

I like the fact that the 2" receiver can be removed when not in use so one is not carrying the extra weight. I have one of the early versions.

Hopefully this is a quick question that I did not see in this thread. With proper installation, how much weight can this support on a cargo rack?

Best regards,

Joe

Can you PM me a price for the 2" receiver?

I have a Bill Davis QR hitch for a 2012 LEAF I just removed from a lease return. In SF East Bay, if someone wants to come pick it up it is yours for $100 or make me an offer. This is a 2" receiver version. (Totally unsure if it could be modified for later year models, but I'm not sure why not.)
