Chevrolet Cruze Bike Rack Questions

  • The front strap of the Rhino-Rack MountainTrail Rooftop Bike Carrier # RBC035 that you referenced is a rubber coated stainless steel strap. They will hold up for a very long time. Check out the review video I attached for the rack as well.

  • I checked with Saris and the Sentinel trunk mount bike rack # SA1051 is listed as a fit for your 2014 Chevy Cruze. I have included a link to a video review of this bike rack for you. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters...

  • Your Chevy Cruze would need a trailer hitch installed in order to carry the Thule Double Track # TH990XT bike rack. The hitch is sold separately. Of the hitches avalabile for your Cruze, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24882. The Draw-Tite model isn't the least expensive, but it would be better suited to carrying the bike rack you're interested in. The Curt # C11282 warranty stipulates that a stabilizing strap, part # 18050 be used for non-trailer loads like...

  • When carrying just a single bike with the Swagman XTC 2 part # S64670 you would want to load it in the position closest to the vehicle. This decreases the leverage the rack has on the bike rack. Also, if you are carrying 2 bikes you would want to load the heaviest bike closest to the vehicle for the same reason.

  • We are going to have to get a bit creative for you to be able to carry a trike recumbent plus two other bikes with your 2014 Chevy Cruze. Since you have a Class I 1-1/4 inch hitch there's no way to carry the trike at the hitch. You would need to go with a roof rack option. First you will need a roof rack. For that I would recommend the Rhino Rack parts # DS126B and # DK142. Now here's where it gets interesting. Since there isn't a trike bike rack available for roof racks...

  • The Thule Passage 3 part # TH911XT has been confirmed as a fit for your 2014 Chevy Cruze so it would work well for you to transport bikes while the vehicle is being flat towed.

  • I would actually go with Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24882 for your 2013 Chevy Cruze. The reason is that the Curt trailer hitch requires the use of a stabilization strap # 18050 when using the hitch for non-trailer loads such as a bike rack. The Draw-Tite hitch does not have this requirement. The VeeMe # VME-V2 does fit a 1-1/4 inch Class I trailer hitch and it does have a 100 pound capacity. provided your bikes combined are under 100 pounds then this would be a good combination...

  • When we did a test fit of the Curt trailer hitch # C11282 we measured 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the rear bumper. I have linked a video showing the installation for you. On the Thule Helium Aero, # TH9042, it measures 14-3/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast, 11-1/4 inches to the lever that allows the rack to tilt, and 4-1/2 inches to the anti-rattle knob. Because the rear bumper curves up above the hitch,...

  • When it comes to the Class I hitch on your 2013 Chevrolet Cruze, you are going to be limited to carrying 2 bikes. Adding additional bikes would place too much weight too far away from the receiver opening and would exert enough leverage on the hitch that it could be damaged or the attachment points between the vehicle and the hitch could fail. This could result in the loss of the rack and the bikes during transport and create a very dangerous situation. For your set-up I recommend...

  • The knob issue was a problem in the initial production run of the Q-Slot bike rack, # PS63134, that has since be resolved. Basically one of the main causes of that issues was over-tightening the knobs. They do not have to be cranked down until they can't move. They just have to be snug. The bike rack is compatible with a Class I trailer hitch. The hitches on the 2013 Cruze are not recessed too far under the vehicle and the rack will clear the rear bumper. The rack measures...

  • The trunk-mount bike rack I recommend for a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze is the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier, part # SA805BL. This carrier has adjustable arms and features a dial system that helps make sure the bike rack is secured to the vehicle. I have attached a link to a product review video for this bike rack you can check out. The bike rack you referenced in your question is also a nice bike carrier. It has deluxe pads that help protect the vehicle paint finish and features an...

  • Since your 2012 Chevy Cruze has a Class I trailer hitch and the bikes are on the heavier side, you will want to go with a light weight bike rack to reduce the stress on the hitch and vehicle. The SportRack bike racks # SR2901 and # SR2910 each have a shipping weight of about 30 pounds. The difference is that the SR2910 locks. They do offer a good amount of rise, 3 inches from top of receiver opening to the bottom of the wheel hoops. The SR2910 is the better value if you are...

  • Yes, as long as you have a hitch installed on your 2012 Chevy Cruze the Kuat Sherpa part # S101 would fit and work well for you. If you need a hitch the # 24882 would be a great option that has been confirmed as a fit. It would also have enough clearance to fold up when not in use. The list you found shows the most popular bike racks we offer with other owners of the Chevy Cruze. The Sherpa is actually on that list and is currently in the number 9 position.

  • The Thule Passage 2 trunk-mount bike rack # TH910XT is a confirmed fit on your 2012 Chevrolet Cruze sedan. If you find that any of your bikes does not provide a good fit on the 14-inch spaced arms, due to the bike's frame tubing design, you can simply add a bike adapter bar # UB01. This bar connects between the seat and handlebars posts to provide a level mounting surface to mate with the carrier's arms. Please refer to the linked video. We offer many such adapter bars. While...

  • The Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier # TH9006XT that you referenced is a very versatile trunk mounted bike rack and would work on a 2012 Chevy Cruze and Impala to carry two mountain bikes. Typically, the biggest obstacle that prevents a trunk-mounted bike rack from working on a vehicle is the presence of a spoiler on the vehicle. If you avoid getting him a vehicle with a spoiler the # TH9006XT will most likely work for your application. If the bikes have alternative style frames...

  • Yakima bike racks that fit 1-1/4 inch receivers do not fit most Class I trailer hitches. Since all of the hitches for the 2012 Chevy Cruze are Class I hitches, you will want to look at some other racks that are Class I compatible. However, on a Class I trailer hitch, both bike rack manufacturers and hitch manufacturers agree that the most bikes you can carry safely on a Class I trailer hitch is 2. To carry 2 additional bikes you would need to add a roof rack to the vehicle. With...

  • Yes, the Hollywood Racks Baja 2 Bike Carrier, # HRB2, will fit your 2012 Chevrolet Cruze as long as it is not equipped with a raised spoiler. If your Cruze is equipped with a raised spoiler, I recommend going with the Hollywood Racks Expedition 2 Bike Carrier, # HRF6-2. This rack is specially designed to accommodate the spoiler. I have attached a couple videos for you. As for your mountain bike, I am assuming that the 6 inches and 3 inches is the circumference of your...

  • According to our friends at Thule, the Raceway 3 Bike Rack, part # TH9002PRO is a fit for your 2011 Cruze. The attachment hooks on the Raceway are completely coated in soft plastic, and if adjusted and installed correctly will not further scratch the finish on your vehicle. For ease and speed of installation and removal, the Raceway is the best trunk-mounted bike rack we offer. When installing the rack, Thule specifically states that the bottom mounting hooks need to attach...

  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Trunk Bike Rack, part # Y02624, will fit your 2011 Chevy Cruze. It attaches to your vehicle using 6 straps, which is common for many trunk mount carriers. I am including a link to a video of the bike rack being installed on a vehicle. The video will show you how the straps are attached to your vehicles trunk. My recommendation would be the Thule Raceway 2 Trunk Bike Rack, part # TH9001PRO. This is one of the easiest bike racks to put on and take off...

  • A hitch adapter like part # HTAD can certainly be used to convert your existing Class I receiver for use with your Yakima bike rack. Using the adapter will lower the tongue weight capacity (maximum amount of weight that can be suspended from the receiver) by 50 percent, from 200 lbs to 100 lbs. This means that the rack plus the bikes placed on it can weigh no more than 100 lbs. When you subtract the 30 lb weight of the Yakima BigHorn you mentioned, you have only 70 lbs available...
