Sturdy product. I installed it soon after it arrived yesterday, and the only (no longer "only" -more below) problem I see with it is a pivotal one (dad joke coming). The removable pin and pivot bolt, used to lower the arm so the rear door hatch can raise and lower for groceries/etc, is rather difficult to insert and remove. My girlfriend simply can't do it. I am very strong, and I barely can get it in with a lot of effort and push/pull, lift/twist of the arm. The bolt is a bit big and/or the holes in the heavy duty rubber/plastic doesn't align with the holes in the hitch shaft well enough for a smooth fit. I will assume that, with enough use, the bolt will machine itself and the holes down enough that insertion/removal is no longer a problem.
The hitch bolt is one that needs a great deal of tightening to reach stability, and unfortunately means quick removal of the assembly isn't a factor, so one would have to weigh the difficulty and time of removal against the disadvantage of having it stay (say you need to parallel park in the city- the assembly renders that nearly impossible in most scenarios).
I like the look of the arm. There is a deep scratch along the length of the logo, but it doesn't really bother me. It's going to get a little beat up, but apparently they were a little rough on it in S&H. Removing 1 star for this.

Wow: So I just spent the past 90 minutes trying to get our 3 bikes on this 3 bike rack. I've deemed it impossible. What a total let down. I might be able to get it to work with a bike frame adapter, but really- should it be this difficult? Absolutely not. I maximized spacing between the clamps, have rotated them, put the bikes on in every imaginable order and angle to no avail.
What's more, is the threaded bolts wreak havok on the bikes. I've owned several racks in the past, and I never had to worry about a paint job until now. It scratched each of our bikes on top, sides, and bottoms of the supporting bar. Yes, I was being very careful in attempting to mount these. Removing 2 stars for this.

I just finished installing this hitch on to my 2022 Forester, and I couldn't be more pleased with it. The installation was just like the video that is posted to your site, and the wire feeding tools made it a breeze!

I did not have to modify the plastic underbody panel on my 2022. It fit back under the car, and I added a self tapping screw to hold it in place. Thanks for making it so easy!




by:

Haven’t used it yet so can’t give it an excellent rating. Seems well made and I expect it to work out well.




by:

Put a nick in my carbon frame bike. Solid for bike you don’t have to worry about nicks. Don’t buy it if your bike is carbon!




by:

I returned this item and company was great to work with regarding the return




by:

I Loved it enough I talked my mom into buying the same model. Service and shipping was amazing as well.




by:

Really like how easy this hitch mounted bike rack is to use. Plug it in the hitch, add the bikes and go.


Comments
Love it. Works will, no issues at all.
Jack W - 12/02/2020


by:

Great bike mount! Sturdy enough for our electric bike and other bikes! Sturdy build. Easy to put into the hitch and mount the bikes.




by:

Given the price, the product is fine, however, there is one major issue: the 1-1/4" bar does not fit a 1-1/4" hitch and has to be machined 1/32 of an inch at a nearby gas station. I went to our local Eastern Mountain dealer (who sell the same product for about 25% more than etrailer) and they said that every customer who buys this bike rack comes back with the same complaint so it is a design and/or manufacturing issue.

etrailer's service was outstanding--ordered the rack and it arrived 3 days later.




by:

Very well built. Solid. No real complaints and has worked well for over a year




by:

Everything about this purchase was good. The product came quickly even though the day I ordered it, it was temporarily out of stock. Erika assured me that the item would be shipped promptly when it became available and the time line was even quicker then expected. The bike carrier was easy to assemble and I know I will like this item as I've owned a similar SportRack carrier in the past and have familiarity with the adjustments for different top tubes. I also purchased a separate locking hitch pin to secure the unit to the receiver hitch in the event someone might want to walk off with the carrier. The bikes are also secured with the rear locking knob. All in all, I'm very satisfied with this product and the company (etrailer.com).




by:

Fast delivery and quality product. I would have given full excellent rating but I wish that the pin hole would take my key-lock pin, too small to fit through. Alternatively a more secure keyed pin would be nice. I could see someone pulling the entire rack from my hitch and tossing it, bikes and all, into a pickup bed.




by:

This is by far the best bike rack that I have, compared to the Reese model that did not fit the hitch on my CH-R. It fits my car perfectly and the color matches my car color too. The most important part is that I can fully open my truck without tilting the rack. It took me over three months to get a "perfect fit" and I couldn't be happier. And as always, customer service was excellent.




by:

Easy bike hitch to install,well made.




by:

I am so happy I made this purchase!! I am a current college student, and having such a reliable bike rack has made a tremendous difference! It's super easy to use! (which was a selling point for me because I'm not exactly the strongest, or most handy person when it comes to these types of things) Anyways, It's super easy to use, super tough, and it's done it's job well! There was very minimal bounce during travels, and absolutely no worries! I also loved that there was a built in lock for your bike. Very useful!




by:

I like the product alot and I had no problem with etrailer. They got my order out and to me in record time. But the locking mechanism doesn't lock like it should and I'm jumping thru hoops to get a new one sent out from Thule.




by:

Nice, solid bike rack with good clearance on my 2011 Elantra. As with all bike racks I have encountered only two bikes fit on the three bike rack. I only need it for two bikes so I am pleased with the rack.




by:

The bike rack was extremely well made. It is a perfect fit for my Forester and when the rack is mounted there is no sway. The bikes fit in the clamps easily. I prefer this type of mount to the ones where the bikes merely hang there held by velcro straps.




by:

Excellent product, very happy with it. Easy to attach to hitch, also easy to load 3 bikes safely.




by:

Great product. Exactly what I needed. Built very well and easy to put together. Solid!




by:

Excellent customer Services, nice product with great price and quick delivery. This is the first time I purchased from etrailer.com and I will not hesitate to purchase from them again. Thank you.




by:

Easy to put together. Solid construction and easy to install.




by:

Lighter then my other one. Easy to put together. Can't wait to use it. Also like that it tilts and I can use it on a 2" receiver if necessary.




by:

I have had my bike on it just once. Some wobble over bumps but on the main road it seems to have little movement. Great so far!

  • Cradles are Sliding on the Arms of a SportRack Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
    The cradles on the SportRack Bike Racks, like # SR2703, should be able to move some so you can position them the way you need to but they should not be moving once the bikes are on it. First, you can remove the cradles and check for any stress fractures or marks that may indicate damage to the cradle. Fractures or stress could stretch it out and lead to it moving too easily. If the cradles seem to be in good working order, make sure the arms are clean and free of anything that may cause...

  • Recommendation for a Folding 3 Bike Trailer Hitch Mount Rack for a 2006 Jeep Liberty
    To determine what rack will fit your 2006 Jeep Liberty, there is an important measurement that you will need to take. Place something flat that will reach the ground, like a yard stick, against the spare tire. Next, measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the yardstick. You will need a rack that extends further than this distance in order for it to fit beyond the spare tire. The Rola Triple X measures 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the up right bar...

  • Replacement Keys Needed for SportRack Bike Rack Lock Y016
    The lock number Y016 that you said is on your SportRack Bike Carrier is prior to Thule acquiring SportRack. My contact at Thule said that they unfortunately do not have any keys or lock cores that will work or replace your older bike rack. Unfortunately we won't be able to help you on that end, you will need to try to find a vendor that might sell older bike racks and check with them. I recommend getting the newer version of your bike rack which would be the SportRack Pathway # SR2703....

  • Can the SportRack Pathway Bike Rack be Easily Removed from the Hitch
    The SportRack Pathway bike rack # SR2703 will be held in your trailer hitch with the included thread hitch bolt. It is not meant as a permanent installation so when you are ready to remove the rack just unthread the bolt and pull it out, take out the rack from the hitch, and thread the bolt back into the bike rack shank so it doesn't get lost. The bolt is threaded because there is a nut inside the bike rack shank and when the bolt is tightened it pulls the bike rack shank tight to the...

  • Can Sportrack be Used on Class I Hitch?
    The SportRack SR2603 cannot be used with a Class I hitch, even with just two bikes on it the way the SportRack Pathway Deluxe # SR2703 can. The difference between the two is in the shanks; Class II accessories such as SR2603 have a longer shank and in some Class I hitches there is a stopper in the back that will not allow those longer shanks to fit.

  • Lightweight 3 Bike Carrier Recommendation
    I would recommend looking at the SportRack 3 Bike Carrier # SR2703. The SportRack bike rack, # SR2703, weighs approximately 25 lbs and has a some great features such as rotating cradles and a reflector. This rack will fit 1-1/4 inch Class II trailer hitches or 2 inch Class III and Class IV trailer hitches. One benefit that the SportRack bike rack has over other racks is the anti-rattle hitch pin, which reduces the movement of the bike rack when you are driving. I have attached a link...

  • Determining if SportRack Pathway Deluxe Bike Rack Will Clear Spare Tire on 2017 Jeep Wrangler
    In order to determine if a particular hitch-mounted bike carrier will clear the spare tire on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler, you will just want to start by taking a quick measurement on your vehicle. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on the trailer hitch to the outermost edge of the spare tire. This will give you the distance needed from the center of the hitch pin hole on a bike rack's shank to the closest part of the carrier. The SportRack Pathway Deluxe 3 Bike Rack # SR2703 referenced...

  • Do All Trunk Mounted Bike Racks Require a Bike Adapter Bar
    All the trunk mounted racks we offer feature a dual arm design, meaning that the frame of the bike would have to sit in both cradles on the two bike rack arms. A bike adapter bar like part # TH982 is usually required to give womens bikes a straight frame that will sit down in the cradles. If you want to avoid the use of adapter bars entirely, a better choice for your needs might be to install a trailer hitch on your 1997 Ford Taurus, and to use a hitch mounted bike rack.

  • Can A Class II Hitch Carry 3 Bikes?
    Unlike the Class I hitch which is rated for only for 2 bikes, the Class II hitch does not have that limit! So, yes, your class 2 can carry 3 bikes as long as you stay within the tongue capacity of 300 lbs total. One great example is the SportRack Pathway Deluxe # SR2703 since it can carry up to 132 lbs total with three bikes loaded and weighs 28 lbs for a total of 152 lbs, way inside your weight limit. As for it not being leveled, that doesn't sound right. I attached a picture of it installed...

For a rack recommendation, I suggest the SportRack Pathway Deluxe 3 Bike Rack - 1-1/4", 2" Hitches - Single Arm - Locking - Tilting # SR2703. The reason why I recommend the Pathway Deluxe over the other racks is the total weight capacity on the rack of 132 pounds.

  • SportRack Pathway Bike Rack Compatibility with Aluminum Frame Bikes
    The SportRack Pathway Deluxe 3 Bike Rack # SR2703 is safe for an aluminum MTB frame. It will not crack or dent the frame unless you are really over-tightening the rack. The rubber cushioning in the cradles will help protect your frame from scratches as well. I recommend using the locking hitch pin # SR0901 to secure the rack to your vehicle. I also recommend the bike adapter bar # 64005 for any step through style frames.

    The Sportrack Bike Rack part # SR2703 that you referenced can fit in Class I hitches like what you have installed on your 2017 Chevy Bolt, but you should note that you would be limited to carrying only 2 bikes with this rack since your hitch is a Class I. Due to the added weight and leverage of a third bike out at the rear of a bike rack Class I hitches should never be used to carry more than 2 bikes at a time.

This will have the 2 inch receiver that will allow for more bike rack and cargo rack options.

My recommendation for you is the Hollywood Racks Traveler 4 Bike Carrier for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # HR8500 which will allow you to have the anti-sway and folding feature for storage.

    The SportRack # SR2703 uses a proprietary anti-rattle bolt, the # SHP2082 would not be compatible. The shank of the bike rack is threaded on the interior, so the SilentACT lock wouldn't work. The fact that a wrench is needed tor remove the pin actually offers you some theft deterrence. I used to use a bike rack that used a hitch bolt that installed using a wrench. I picked up an inexpensive ratchet and socket and kept it in the rear of the vehicle, which allowed me to install and remove...
