Yakima KingJoe-Pro Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2016 Hyundai Elantra

Today on this 2016 Hyundai Elantra, we're going to be test fitting the King Joe Pro Two Bike Rack. Part number Y02624 from Yakima. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go and take a closer look and show off some of the features. How the bike is attached to the rack, we're going to have three points of contact with the bike's frame. We're going to have two straps up at the top here and one off to the side here. That's going to serve as an anti-sway trap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth, possibly hitting the bike rack, or the bikes in front of it. Let's go and take that off and set it aside.

With our bike rack in this position let me go ahead and give you a quick measurement.


Hollywood Racks Baja Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2016 Hyundai Elantra

Today on this 2016 Hyundai Elantra we're going to be test-fitting the Hollywood Racks Baja 2 Bike Rack, part number HRB2. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. How this bike is attached to the rack, we're going to have three points of contact with the bike's frame. We're going to have two straps up at the top here and one off to the side. That's going to serve as an anti-swing strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth, possibly hitting the bike rack or the bikes in front of it. Let's go ahead and take that off and set it aside. With the bike removed and the bike rack in this position, which it is a fixed position so the arms do not fold down, measuring from the bumper we've added about 20 inches to the rear of the vehicle. Now how this is actually attached to the rack, we're going to have six points of contact. We're going to have two rubber-coated hooks up here at the top, two to the side just above the taillight, and then two at the base of the trunk as well.


Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Chevrolet Spark

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Spark, we'll be talking a look at the Yakima HalfBack 2-bike trunk-mount rack, part number Y02636. On this bike rack, our bike's held on in three positions, two up here on the frame and one anti-sway down here. Now in order to get the bike off, we just have to push in on these tabs and pull the zip strips out. Now we can get our bike out of the way. I like to replace the zip strips to ensure that they don't get lost or broken. Now with the bike out of the way, let's take a couple measurements. First will be total distance added on to the rear of the vehicle, which will be about 28".


Saris Bones Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2013 Ford Escape

Today on our 2013 Ford Escape, we're doing a test fit of the Saris Bones trunk mount 3-bike rack. That part number is S8801. Now, we already have our bike secured down. We're first going to show you how we do that then we'll go over some features of the rack itself. We have three straps altogether holding our bike into place, two on our frame here and one as our anti-sway strap. We're going to start by releasing our two frame straps first.


Thule Archway Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2016 Hyundai Elantra

Today, on this 2016 Hyundai Elantra, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Archway XT-2 Bike Rack, part number TH9009XT. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go and take a closer and show off some of the features. How to attach this to the rack, we're going to have 3 points of contact for the bike's frame. We're going to have 2 straps up at the top here, 1 off to the side here. That's going to serve as an anti-sway strip to keep from moving too far back and forth, possibly hitting the bike rack or the bikes in front of it. It also has this integrated cable lock at the end, where you pull this out, wrap around the bike in the front, and attach to this point here for additional security. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside. With the bike in this position, we'll go ahead and give you a quick measurement.

Trunk Bike Racks Questions and Answers

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • Typically we do not recommend using trunk mounted bike racks on vehicles that have spoilers. Most plastic and fiberglass spoilers cannot handle the weight of a bike rack and bikes and will bend or even break sooner or later. If the spoiler on your 2013 Mazda 3 hatchback is metal and part of the rear hatch, rather than a separate plastic or fiberglass spoiler, then you can use a trunk mounted bike rack without having to worry about the weight of the rack damaging the spoiler. You can...

This is an easy bike rack to put on and take off the rear of your CR-V. It uses 6 straps to secure it to the back of the vehicle and has an...

  • Bike Rack Options for a 2013 Toyota Highlander
  • After doing some research on your vehicle, I found that there are no trunk mounted bike rack options available for your 2013 Toyota Highlander. Bike rack manufacturers have determined that it would be unsafe to use a trunk mounted bike rack on your rear hatch because the vehicle is unable to support the weight at the point where the carrier must be placed. It is likely due to the spoiler at the top of the rear hatch that you have referenced. These spoilers were not designed to support...

  • Using Trunk Mounted Bike Rack on 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • Thule does not recommend using any rear strap-mounted bike rack on the Odyssey, due to the fact that the rear hatch that the rack would attach to is not strong enough to bear the weight of the rack and the bikes. Hollywood Racks makes a trunk mounted rack that would work for you. Their Over-The-Top model is available in a 2 bike version as part # HRF2 or as a 3 bike version, part # HRF2-3. The rack is designed differently than the Raceway Pro 3 you're asking about. The Over-The-Top uses...

  • Pros and Cons of Trailer Hitch Mount and Trunk Mount Bike Racks for a 2003 Honda Civic Sedan
  • Starting with a trailer hitch mount, it is the most stable way to carry bikes on a vehicle. It is also easy to load and unload the bikes when compared to a roof rack set up. There are many bike racks available but on a 2003 Honda Civic sedan you are limited to carrying 2 bikes at most because all of the hitches available for the vehicle, see link, are Class I hitches that can only support 2 bikes. For this set up you would need to buy a hitch and a bike rack. On a trunk mount, you only...

  • I you can tell me the year of your Honda CR-V I can make some specific recommendations. If it is a model that has a spare tire mounted on the back then we do have some spare tire racks that are likely to fit. And for models that do not have a rear mounted spare tire I am sure that we have trunk mount racks that will fit. The Saris Bones bike rack, # SA805, is listed as a fit from Saris for the 2012 to 2014 Honda CR-V. These models did not have the spare tire mounted on the back. I have...

  • Recommended Bike Rack To Fit a 2012 Fiat 500C Convertible
  • For your 2012 Fiat 500c, which is the convertible model, I would recommend to use a hitch and a hitch bike rack. A trunk bike rack will not be able to be used on the convertible model. The hitch I would recommend would be the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24873. This hitch will bolt-on to the rear of your vehicle. I am including a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video of the hitch being installed on a Fiat 500. You will be limited to hauling 2...

  • Bike Adapter Bar for an Electra Townie 7D Mens Bike and Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Rack
  • The bike adpater bars, like # TH982XT, are also a fit for the trunk mount bike racks like the Raceway # TH9001PRO. All of the adapter bars work in the same manner, the bar telescopes to a certain length and clamp under the seat and under the handle bars so you can carry the bike more level. The # TH982XT would be a good choice. Looking at some pictures of the bike you would most likely have to raise the seat as high as you could to get an adapter bar to fit and be affective. Otherwise,...

I have included a link to the installation details and a video showing how the adapter works.

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
  • There are better options available for carrying bikes on your 2011 Camaro. Trunk mount bike racks have been around for a while and are a good, inexpensive option to carry bikes, but like you, many people are weary of using a trunk mount rack because the weight of the bike rack and the bikes is sitting on the trunk and bumper. Bike rack manufacturers test these bike racks and as long as the weight capacity of the bike rack is not exceeded and the bike rack is installed properly, you should...
