The MotoTote Mini excels in frame compatibility, accommodating a wide range of electric bike frame styles. Its adjustable wheel cradles and clamps securely hold electric bike frames of various shapes and sizes, providing a snug and reliable fit.

To ensure a secure fit without any interference, it's crucial to select a bike rack that can accommodate these dimensions. The MotoTote Mini offers adjustable wheel cradles and straps that accommodate different wheelbase lengths and securely hold wider electric bike tires.

The MotoTote Mini prioritizes both aspects with its robust construction and advanced features. Its heavy-duty steel construction and unique tie-down system ensure exceptional stability, keeping your electric bike secure during transit. Additionally, the integrated anti-rattle device minimizes vibrations and prevents any movement or damage to your bike.

However, the MotoTote Mini simplifies the process with its user-friendly design.
