About a month after I received the XTC2 rack, I noticed when I loaded my bikes, the rack swayed back and forth. Too much for my comfort and piece of mind. So if the bar that attaches the rack to the trailer hitch on the Swagman XTC2 becomes loose, here's what to do. Remove the two M10 metric 1.25" long allen bolts and replace them with M10 1.5" long bolts. I always go to Home Depot. I gave up going to Lowes for screws and bolts because they were usually out of stock on most inventory. This simple fix solved the slight movement of my rack. It is now tight and sturdy.
I'm very pleased that I upgraded to the Swagman XTC2. I've been wanted to get this for a year or so. This rack should work well on my trips to the many paved trails in Florida. If you bicycle in Florida, see the link to my website 'Florida Paved Trails Dot Com'. Lots of info and photos on many of the trails throughout the state. Thanks for seeing.
