Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Colorado for Carrying Bike Rack


Hi. Question. Im looking at your bumper hitch # C19031 for my 2017 chevy colorado truck. It WILL NOT be used for towing, but for a bike rack for 2 bikes. It has a small 5 ft bed, so the bikes will be tight if in the bed. The step bumper have 2 NON drilled holes in the top of step part of the bumper which should be easy to drill out. The under side of the bumper is drilled out, but the black plastic is covering the drilled out holes. Will this hold the bike rack without damaging the bumper? thanks

Since the Curt universal hitch part # C19031 is designed as a multi-fit hitch it does not have capacities or guarantees that it will work well on a vehicle without damaging anything. I have a solution that I can guarantee will work well on your 2017 Chevy Colorado though.

The frame mount Draw Tite hitch part # 76004 is a confirmed fit for your truck and would easily carry a bike rack. I attached an install video for more info.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Camber 2 part # TH9058. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

If you plan on carrying any women's or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
