Free2Go can be used on any Smart ForTwo or Cabrio for any year EXCEPT 2016 models that have only one tow hole on the bumper.
Free2Go supports standard bicycles of all types. Road, Mountain, Townie, Fixed gear, cruiser bikes of all types up to 45 lbs (20 kg) with wheel bases less that 47”(119cm). Bikes and gear on them weighing more than 45 lbs (20 kg) or extending beyond the typical maximum wheel base cannot presently be supported by Free2Go.
The Free2Go bike rack works collaboratively with the bike to be transported safely. A Stabilization strap is used to hold the front wheel in parallel with the rest of the bike. This strap, in cooperation with the other straps ensures that the bike stays rigid on Base Mounts while the Base Mount Straps hold the bike down on the rack. The protective pads provided ensure the bike and car remain safe during travel.
Every bike rack on the market touches the car in some manner. Some touch the car in upwards of 6 places. Free2Go’s base mount unit screws into the two bumper ports. Free2Go provides foam protective pads which are consistent with those used on many bike rack models to attach to one or two locations on the bike. With the proper installation per the guide provided and the protective pads both the bike and the car will be transported safely. (See Free2Go instructions, sections 5 and 7)
Yes, Free2GO ships with all the components and instructions necessary to be installed with both coupe and cabriolet models.
The first Free2Go is Black with small blue and white labels on the neck and profile of the rack. The straps are all black with small silver cam buckles. We will make future color choices based on demand.
As mentioned in the above section, Free2Go supports standard bicycles weighing under 45 lbs (20 kg). We are aware that there are some electric bikes that may weigh under 45 lbs (20 kg) if the battery is removed. Provided the weight being carried is under 45 lbs (20 kg), Free2Go will support it.
