Review of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Recumbent Bike Rack on a 2012 Chevrolet Impala

Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Impala, well be test fitting the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 2-bike Carrier Platform Style for Recumbents part number HR1000r-1G. Now to begin our test fit, well slide the shank of the carrier into the opening of the hitch, align up our pinholes, thread our anti-rattle bolt through the pinholes and tighten with a wrench. Now well go ahead and go over a few clearance measurements to see how the bike carrier and this vehicle will fit together. Theres about 11 inches of ground clearance. From the closest part of the vehicle to the closest part of the carrier is about 1 inch. We have added about 26 inches to the overall length of the vehicle.With this bike carrier and this vehicle, you can access the trunk with the platform folded up or we can pull the three pins at the bottom of the platform to fold it, which will also allow you to have access to your trunk.Now to load the bike, well make sure that the mast is in its upright position. Well put the frame hooks to the top of the mast and well undo the cradle straps. For demonstration purpose, well not be using a recumbent but well be using a normal road bike.

This bike carrier will fit recumbents and also mountain bikes and road bikes. Well set the bike into the wheel cradles, adjust the frame hooks tightly against the frame and secure it with the straps.That completes todays test fit of the Hollywood Rack Sport Rider 2-bike Carrier for Recumbents platform style part number HR1000r-1G on our 2012 Chevrolet Impala. .
