Review of the Hollywood Racks Hitch Bike Racks on a 2019 GMC Acadia


Hey, everyone. Charles here at etrailer. And today, we're taking a look at the Hollywood Sport Rider SE bike rack on a 2019 GMC Acadia. So, this bike rack is gonna be great for hauling your extra heavy electric bikes, as you can carry up to 80 pounds per bike. Now, this is a frame mount, so if you had a custom paint job or your carbon frame style bikes, this might not be the one for you. But we're gonna have three attachment points, a strap for each tire, and this frame mount.

To remove the bike, we would start with the straps. Just get these out of the way. And then, keeping one hand on the bike, so it doesn't fall on your vehicle, we can then push on these buttons and lift them up. So, this is one of the only problems I don't like is that I can't take the hooks all the way off. So, it is gonna be a little bit more difficult getting your bike on and off, but once you figured out the best way, it's not that bad.

So, this does tilt away by just removing the pin and clip, and then pulling on this knob here. But with our Acadia, we had the bike on here and we weren't able to make clearance. So, we are just going to have to take the bike off and fold the center mass down. And to do that, we're gonna make sure that this pin is facing up, so that we can slide it out because of this notch right here. Once that's out, we can go ahead and fold it down, reinsert the pin.

And now, we can go ahead and open our Acadia. With the bike off, we can take a closer look at some of these features. So, these frame hooks have a nice thick rubber or foam padding right here, and then an extra nice soft cushiony foam padding right here just for extra protection. And they both have lock cores that are gonna be key to like with each other, as well as with the lock that comes on your hitch pin. And over here on the cradles, we can accommodate your five-inch fat tire bikes.

And all the straps also have this nice rubber padding in here just for extra protection again. And all the cradles will slide left and right to accommodate your different wheel bases of up to 16 inches. With the bike rack on the back of your vehicle, you have some added length. So, from the bumper to the furthest point of our rack, sitting at about 27 and a quarter inches, so something to keep in mind when you're backing up. And the ground clearance to the bottom of this reflector is about 22 and a quarter inches. And from the shank, about 15 and a quarter inches. Another thing to keep in mind when you're going down those steep hills and driveways. The front of your vehicle can go up and the rear's gonna go down. And we can also fold this rack up to save some room in our garage or our parking lot. Clicks into place audibly, so you know it's secure. And so, now, from the bumper to the furthest point of the rack is about 14 and a half inches. And the closest point, it's gonna be about three and a half inches, but nothing to worry about as it's not gonna get any closer than that. So, living with this bike rack on your Acadia, you are gonna have full visibility of your windshield, your taillights, your license plate. You will lose a little bit of view from your rear backup camera, but compared to a lot of other bike racks, this is really good. Over here, we have our two-inch shank that fits into our two-inch hitch receiver. One of the cool things that I do like about this rack is the welded stop plate makes it easier for me to just slide this in and not have to worry about aligning the holes over there. And all the real action is gonna come from this self-tensioning knob here. It's just gonna reduce the plate in the receiver tube. And as you can see, as I'm shaking the rack, the whole vehicle is moving and sharing its secure connection. So, overall, this is a solid well-build bike rack. Awesome for carrying those extra heavy bikes. If you don't need all of that weight and want a little bit more versatility as far as the different styles of bikes you can carry, with a front wheel mount, check out the RockyMounts MonoRail bike rack. But other than that, this is a great choice. And that's gonna do it for our look on the Hollywood Sport Rider SE bike rack on a 2019 GMC Acadia..
