Will this fit on a Chevy 2013 Spark?
asked by: Karen L
The Prorack 2 Bike Carrier, # PR8062403, is an excellent option for your 2013 Chevrolet Spark assuming you already have a trailer hitch installed on your vehicle. All of the trailer hitches available for the Spark are Class I rated hitches, so it is important that we look at Class I rated bike carriers like the Prorack bike carrier that you mentioned.
Another bike carrier that you may be interested in is the Hollywood Racks Commuter 2 Bike Carrier, # HR2500. This carrier has many of the same features as the Prorack carrier, but it weighs 5 lbs less and includes rubber bike frame straps.
I have attached a link to all of our Class I rated bike racks for you to check out. Please keep in mind, Class I trailer hitches can support up to 2 bikes. The weight of a third or fourth bike puts too much weight further away from the hitch and adds additional stress that the hitch cannot handle. It is similar to using a pipe extension on a wrench to move a rusty bolt.
If you do not have a trailer hitch on your Spark, I recommend installing a Draw-Tite trailer hitch. If your vehicle has ground effects, then you will want part # 24894. If your vehicle does not have ground effects, then you will want part # 24893. I have attached a link to the installation instructions for these trailer hitches for you to check out.
