Seems like the industry is going full throttle on the e-bike trend.

$894.35 is more than a regular thule rack....

Which company lol. It's a shame the mess they created. Such great racks. I have 4 of them myself.

There is problem with a pickup.... lifting the heavy bike in and out of the bed is no small feat. Proper form is essential. :)

Another option is to use a motorcycle hitch rack (a whole lot cheaper than the Thule rack!). Only downer is that you need to use straps to secure the bike, but it isn't that much effort. Here's the one I use - with my KTM dirt bike, KTM e-Bike, Santa Cruz MTB, and my cyclocross bike - works for all them.

There are lots of 2 bike versions as well.

I have that Thule rack in the original post. Got it for $550, since I had bought a bike off the dealer before. The main advantage of the easyfold is it's lighter than most racks and it folds up into suitcase size, for easier storage.

Price is basically for the lightweight and storage form factor. If neither of those are important, there are cheaper and probably easier to use options. It's kind of funky using those claw grips. (also the ramp is so useless the store didn't even give it to me haha. It's basically more of a liability than help)

I also carry 2 ebikes on my Yakima Holdup 1 1/4 hitch tray. No issues at all
