Review of the Swagman Titan Hitch Bike Rack on a 2011 Ford Escape


Today on this 2011 Ford Escape were going to do a test fit of part #: S63410 from Swagman, the Titan 4 bike carrier. A few things to know about this bike rack that it will work with inch and a quarter receiver hitches both class 1 and class 2. This will also work with 2 inch receiver hitches with the included spacer and thats what well be working with today. Well start off our test fit by installing the bike rack into the hitch, then well go ahead and tighten down the anti-rattle bolt and put the safety clip on the other side. Following that well go ahead and get some clearance measurements. From the bumper to the bike rack our clearance is going to be 10 inches.

Ground clearance is going to be 17 and a half inches. Now well go ahead and tilt the bicycle rack back and well check access to the back of the vehicle. Alright, that looks good. Now well go ahead and unfold the arms of the bike rack and then well go ahead and get ready to load our bike. Before we load our bike well go and make sure the straps are out of the way for the cradles were going to use and that the sway part of cradles are tilted towards the inside.

When we load up our bike well balance it out on the cradles and then well swing the anti sway part of cradle back down to the seat tube of the bike, strap that in place and then install the remaining straps. And thats what it takes to load up a bike. And with that, that will finish it for out test fit of part #: S63410 from Swagman, the Titan 4 bike rack on our 2011 Ford Escape.
