Review of a SportRack Escape 3 Hitch Bike Rack on a 2012 Chevrolet Traverse


Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Traverse, we are going to test fit the Sportrack Escape 3 bike rack part number a30403. With our bike rack already pre-assembled and our vehicle already equipped with a 2-inch hitch, we can go ahead and slide the bike rack shank directly into the 2-inch hitch on the vehicle. Then we'll install and tighten down our anti-inadible and install our safety clip. As you can see with the anti-inadible tighten down it really takes out any rattle or movement between the bike rack and the hitch. Alright with our bike rack loaded, we'll go ahaed and show you what it looks like in its stored position. We'll remove the hinge pin and fold the arms down.

Alright, and this is what our bike rack will look like when it's in stored position. now, let's go ahead and put the arms back up and check for rear cargo access by removing the pin and clip and folding the bike rack away from the vehicle. As you can see, if we remove the safety pin and clip, we can tilt the bike rack away from the vehicle and we have plenty of access to the rear cargo area. Next, let's go ahead and take a couple of measurements. From the upright of the bike rack to the nearest point of the bumber is 6 inches.From the very back of the lowest point of the bike rack, we have 17 inches of ground clearance.

Now let's go ahead nad load up the bike so we can see how it looks like. First, we'll undo the wheel straps on the bike so we can set the bike directly into position. Alright, with our bike mounted, we can secure it with the straps. And in just a few simple steps, we went ahead and secure the bike to the bike rack and the bike rack to the vehicle. And now we're ready to hit the road.

And there you have it for the Sport Rack Escape 3 bike carrier on our 2012 Chevy Traverse.
