Review of the Swagman Hitch Bike Racks on a 2017 Toyota Corolla

Today on our 2017 Toyota Corolla we're going to be taking a look at the Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack, part number S64650. As you can see we already have our bike securely mounted on here. You have one attachment point, and that's going to be right across the frame. Now it is coated in rubber so you don't have to worry about any scratches or abrasions. To take the bike off simply lift up on the hooks. Now I do want to point out right here that the bike is fairly close to the vehicle, so when loading and unloading your bike make sure to be careful.

With the hook out of the way we can lift our bike right off. Now with the bike out of the way, I want to get a quick, few measurements. Overall length, this is going to be adding roughly right about 20 1/2" to the total length to the vehicle. Now the closest point to the vehicle is going to be these wheel cradles right here, and that's going to be right about 7 1/2". Now as far as ground clearance goes, the lowest point on our bike rack is going to be right about here, which is right about 12". Now in order to get in our trunk and not have to worry about the mast being in the way, it does tilt out of the way. Simply remove the pin in the middle, and the mast will fold down.

Replace the pin, and now we have full access to get anything in or out of our trunk without having to worry about it. Now this bike rack does work with 1 1/4 and 2" hitches, and it does come with an anti-rattle bolt and clip so it's going to take out some of that play and slack, and any other noise going down the road. Now, before we finish up, I do want to mention one more thing. I mentioned the mast can fold down. Let me go ahead and put that up for now. Whenever the bike rack is not in use, or whenever you need to store it, it's going to be a great space-saver.

You're going to have a pin on each side of the wheel cradles. You're going to pull those pins out and the arms will fold right up. Align the holes. Replace the pins. This is going to be great for whenever you're storing it and when it's not in use on your vehicle.

That'll finish up the look at the Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack, part number S64650 on our 2017 Toyota Corolla. Here it is on our test course. We'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action, which simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Next we're at the alternating speed bumps, which will see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Finally, we have the full speed bumps where we'll see the up and down action, which is just like driving out of a parking lot, garage or driveway.
