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

Today on this 2011 Chevrolet Malibu, we're going to do a test fit of part number A30901 from SportRack. We'll go ahead and start off our test fit with the bicycle rack installed in the hitch so we just add our anti-rattle bolt, tighten it down, and put the safety pin on the other side. Okay, with the bike rack installed, we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements for clearance. As its closest point to the bike rack to the bumper, we're looking at 4-1/2 inches. The ground clearance by the hitch is going to be 8-3/4 inches. Ground clearance at the very back of the rack will be 13-1/2 inches.

With the bike rack folded up, let's check access to the trunk. We're going to unfold the bike rack and show access one more time. Alright, let's go ahead and load up the bike. First thing we'll make sure is that the clamps at the top of the post ran to the very top. And that the straps are out of the way for the wheel loops.

When we load up our bike, we'll put the wheels into the wheel loops. We raise the center post up, run the clamp down to the top tube and make sure the pin is in place at the bottom. Then we can go ahead and run our straps over the wheels. And that's what it takes to load up our bike. Ok and with that, that will finish it for our test fit of part number A30901 from SportRack on our 2011 Chevrolet Malibu.
