In a reply to an answer you said a draw tire hitch would be a better choice for I bike rack. I was wondering why it would be better than a curt?

In general we recommend the Draw Tite hitches over the Curt for bike racks since Curt hitches require the use of a stabilizer strap when the hitch is carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack.

So for a 2007 Chevy HHR the Draw Tite hitch part # 24756 would be the best option.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Camber 2 part # TH9058. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
