Review of the Thule Hitching Post Pro Hitch Bike Rack on a 2022 Chevrolet Traverse


What's up everybody It's AJ with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna be checking out, the Thule Hitching Post Pro, on our 2022 Chevrolet Traverse. It's gonna be a very popular bike rack, for the hanging style, which means it's gonna hold the bike by the frame itself, so that does eliminate some bikes, that's gonna thrown up there, I wouldn't throw a carbon fiber up here, it could damage that, but for saving space on the rack itself, and making it easier to use, the hanging styles being great for four bikes. Now, they do get a little close if you have it fully loaded, and there might be some swinging back and forth, so just be careful of that, but they do have precautions built in. Let's take a closer look here. So, there's gonna be a strap, on the down tube here on the frame, that's gonna help keep that movement side to side, to a minimum when you're going on the road.

Now, it still swings back and forth a little bit, but it definitely helps it out. If I took this off and showed you, there'll be a whole lot more movement there. Loading and unloading the bike is really easy. Just come here to the straps, like you saw me do with this one, you do that on the one on the down tube, and the two that's on the top tube of the frame as well, and then you just reach in and pull off the bike, and come back and just replace the straps, just to keep them nice and neat when they're not in use. And now, also, if your bike's not on there, and you don't wanna take it off the back of your car, you can lower the arms.

So, let's pull this pin here, drop it down and that's gonna save you space, when you're driving down the road. When the bike's not loaded, go ahead and just replace the straps to keep them neat, especially if you're good on the road. If you're going to hit the trail, you can leave them on done that way. It's just ready to go when you throw, the bike back on when you get back, but with those in place let's get some measurements. We can go from the bumper to outmost point of the bike rack.

We'll see how much it actually adds, to the back of your traverse. So, come to about here, drop the line, looks about 38 inches it adds to the back. So, that's quite a bit. Now you can change that by folding the arms down. So, let's just do that right now.

Say that remove this pin, and then you can lower the arms down. It's gonna save in the space when the bikes aren't loaded, or even when you're going to store in the garage. Now let's get that measurement again. So, from the bumper out, we'll go to this cradle right here. It gonna be about 17 and a half inches, so it saved you quite a bit of space. Another thing is how close does it sit to your traverse So, from the bumper to this point right here, is gonna be six and a half inches, so it looks like you got plenty of room in between there, you have to worry about it coming even close, to the back of the car. The arms folded you can tilt it away as well. So, if you let's say you needed to get your back hatch, for whatever reason, and I keep a bike rack, on the back of my vehicle all the time, and throw groceries in the back, it's kind of hard to with the bike in the way. Well, it's nice that you can tilt that away, just like that, and then open the hatch. So, I like that I don't have, to completely remove the whole bike rack, just to get back here, and throw something in there or get something out. One more measurement we'll look at, is gonna be ground clearance. So, from the ground to the bottom of the bike rack, looks like this portion might stick down a little bit lower, so we'll go here. Sticks out about, 17 and a half inches from the ground. This is pretty high up off the ground. You shouldn't have to worry about any ground clearance, but we always like to warn people, just be careful with steep driveways or hills. It's gonna fit a two inch by two inch hitch, got an anti-rattle pull ring right there, takes all that shake and play out, it can shake the whole vehicle back and forth. You see there's no rattling whatsoever here in the hitch, which means it's not gonna transfer your bikes either. One last thing about security is we have a loop here. You can run a cable lock through that way, you can run through the bikes as well, and lock those up when you're not around. Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the . This is gonna show us the side to side action, which simulates turning corners and evasive maneuvers. Then we get to the alternating speed bumps. We'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole, or driving around uneven pavement. Then we'll go over the full speed bumps, and we can see the up and down action. This will be like driving in and out, of a parking lot garage or a driveway. Overall it's gonna be a great four bike hang style bike rack especially if you wanna save that space in the garage, you don't wanna get into the platform, 'cause those get heavier and pretty big, especially with four bikes. There's gonna be a more space saving, a more affordable way to do that with your bikes. Well, I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out. Hope this helped..
