etrailer | Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Recumbent Bike Rack Review – 2013 Honda CR-V


Today on our 2013 Honda CRV well be test fitting
the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider two bike carrier for recumbents, part number HR1000R. To begin our test fit well slide the shank
of the carrier into the opening of the hitch, line up our pin holes, thread our anti-rattle
bolt through the pin holes and tighten with a wrench. Now that the carrier is secured to the vehicle
well go over a few clearance measurements to see how the bike carrier and this vehicle
will fit together. There is about 12 inches of ground clearance. The closest part of the carrier to the closest
part of the vehicle is about five and a half inches. Weve added a total of 30 inches to the overall
length of the vehicle. To access the cargo area well pull the three
pins at the base of the carrier to fold down the mast and the platform. This will allow us to have access to our cargo
door. To load the bike well undo the tray straps,
set the bike into the wheel trays, raise the mast, tighten the frame hook to the frame
of the bike and secure it with the straps. This bike carrier is designed to carry recumbent
bikes. For our demonstration purposes we will be
using a normal road bike.
