Review of the SportRack EZ Hitch Bike Rack on a 2011 Chevrolet HHR


Alright today on this 2011 Chevrolet HHR were going to do a test fit of part number a30901 from SportRack, this is their 2 bike easy hitch mounted bike carrier. One quick note about this bicycle carrier is that it will work with 1-14 receiver hitches as shown here on class one and will also work on class two receiver hitches. It will also work on 2 by 2 receiver hitches with the included bushing. Well start off by installing the hitch into the bicycle rack, tightening down the anti-rattle bolt and putting the safety pin on the other side, and we will be using a wrench to tighten it down with. Alright next well give you some dimensions that will give you an idea of clearance between the bicycle rack and the vehicle, and the bicycle rack and the ground, at its closest point the bicycle rack will be about 5 to the bumper, and the ground clearance will be 9. Alright next well go ahead and unfold the rack and give you one final measurement at the back end.

We will pull out the key pin, fold it down and reinstall the pins into the matching holes. And the measurement at the back end is going to be 13-1/2. At this point we can go ahead and check for access to the back of the vehicle. I will have to take the center post and tilt it away so we can do this. So it looks like we can get to the back of the vehicle now.

Next well go ahead and load up a bike; well start off by making sure the wheel straps our out of the way at the wheel wells, and make sure the post is out of the way. Okay what well do is set the bike in the wheel wells; well raise the post back up, pull down the clamp on the bike that will hold everything in place. And then we can do our wheel straps, okay in a few easy steps our bike is already loaded up and ready to go, and with that it will finish it for our test fit of part number a30901 from SportRack, the 2 bike easy hitch mounted rack on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR. .
