Video Transcript for Malone Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2018 Cadillac XT5

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Cadillac XT5, we're gonna be test-fitting the Malone hanger three bike rack for 1 1/4 inch and two inch hitches, part number MPG2127. This is a nice, basic-style bike rack here. Let's take a look at some of the features. Starting with the arms, at the ends of both of them you're gonna see this reflective material here, and that's gonna help for better visibility at night. The cradles are adjustable back and forth and side to side as needed. They can be adjusted by loosening and tightening our screws on the inside.

To make these easier to take them on and off, we're gonna kinda bend these in on the inside here, and that's gonna grip your bike at two points. We're gonna have this strap up at the top and we decided to have it in this configuration where we have one off to the side here to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth. There's also a padding here on the mast itself, and this is to help protect your bike so if it should make contact with it while driving, it's gonna be padded and it's not gonna get scratched up or dented up.Also, there's an integrated cable lock in the main mast as well. You wrap it around your bikes, attach it to this point here, and lock it into place, and your bikes are gonna be secure while you drive. This is key to like with our hitch lock, and we'll get to that in a minute.

To remove our bike, we're gonna come to the strap here, lift up on the tab, you see this tab here, you lift that up, and that'll release it. We just simply lift our bike off and set it off to the side. With the bike rack in this position, measuring from the edge of the bumper to our most outermost point, we've added about 26 inches to the rear of the vehicle. Our ground clearance is gonna be 14 1/2 inches and the closest point to the bumper is gonna be about 3 3/4 inches to this edge here. And from the emblem of our XT5 to our bike rack is gonna be about two inches between here.These arms do fold down for close quarters situations such as parking.

To do that, it's a little bit of a different system here. It has this turn knob that you wanna remove this pin all the way like so, then these come down and you simply realign the holes and tighten it back down. Again, measuring to the edge of the bumper, now we're only at about ten inches from the rear of the vehicle to this edge here, so that made a pretty decent difference. This can also tilt away from the vehicle when no bikes are on it. You come to the bottom of the mast here.

Again, you remove this pin by loosening it up, turning it to the left all the way, and removing it completely. Then you can take your foot, push down on the pedal, and now we have complete rear hatch access to get what we need. So if we push it back up to get it into the original position and re-tighten our knob.How it attaches to the hitch, it's gonna have an anti-rattle bolt, which, once tightened down, will take out the shake and play in the shank and make for a smoother ride, and a lock on the other side so it's secured to your vehicle. Again, this is key to like with the integrated cable lock on the bike rack, and then we have this collar around the edge of it here. That can be removed, and you can utilize this with 1 1/4 inch accessories as well, but for class two hitches only. So this can work with a class two hitch on this particular vehicle, or if you have two vehicles with a class two and a class three, it'll work with both.And there you have it for the Malone hanger three style bike rack on our 2018 Cadillac XT5.

Best bike rack we have ever had. Shipping was ultra fast. The hitch rack is very solid and does not rattle. 520299

This arrived in a nice package. One of those solid cardboard boxes that you can use for Christmas Decorations for generations. Solid and simple. This has been great sonfar. 681967

We are infrequent users, but this is exactly what we were looking for. It carries all three of our bikes. It is easy on and off. After some adjusting it holds a male mtn bike, female hybrid (I still recommend the adapter, but when I load it I don't have to tie into it), and male kids BMX easily and securely. It folds down pretty easily, so we still have access to the back hatch on our 2013 Ford Escape. It came with the locking cable for the bikes and lock for the hitch bolt. We previously used a strap on rack and it was nice, but didn't feel as secure. Every time I break it out for a trip my wife and I both remark about what a great buy it was and how happy we are knowing we don't have to worry about the bikes on our trips. 691441

Still going strong after being attached for over a year-- haven't taken it off really and has survived many road trips as well as Chicago winter. Love it- and appreciate the attention from etrailer and all of their help with installation, direction, and customer support. Very happy! 563716

I was surprised by how heavy the product is. It was shipped a box within a BOX. The outside packaging was a Heavy Duty Box. So it came without so much as a scratch. The manual and videos on the website were right on and very helpful in advance of my receiving the product. It was pretty easy to assemble and attach to the hitch. I was able to attach my bike to it with ease. I love the etrailer website and the customer experience that you get. Every item has pictures, videos, and other useful information, Great Job! 719762

Looks like a well made product and is simple to put together. However, I am unable to use it as the top of the vertical support (which curves back towards the vehicle) hits the hatch on my 2018 Range Rover HSE. 690033

Everything was perfect, got it delivered sooner than I thought. It was pretty easy to assemble, I have used it once so far with one bike it was easy to use and I felt very comfortable driving down the road with the anti-sway. Also loving the locks that come with it. This is my first hitch mount rack but so far I am really glad I bought it! 665098

Review from a similar Hanger in Hitch Bike Racks


Really nice bike rack. Fits a 2011 Outback with no issue. I was hesitant to get a rack that hangs on the back of the car because I was worried about scratches/damage to the finish etc. This unit comes with nicely coated strap hooks and the bumpers seem to protect well. Obviously you want to install the rack when your car is clean to prevent surface dirt from marring the finish. The rack is easy to position and holds three bikes well. The bike straps are sturdy yet flexible and the fold down option is nice when the rack is not in use. Overall very pleased. 672129

Review from a similar Hanger in Hitch Bike Racks


With two bikes on the rack for an extended highway road trip, it's basically impossible to keep the rack still, it moves around quite a bit leaving scuff/blemishes on the car. My car is brand new so needless to say I was disappointed to say the least. I did tighten the straps as best I could, without ripping them them off completely and re-tighten throughout my trip but the problem remained. Also the two top straps rub on the paint leaving scuff/blemishes in the paint.Also several of the rubber straps that hold the bike onto the rack came off several times throughout the trip. I'm not sure this rack is meant for highway speeds for long periods of time. I'm overall Disappointed. I don't like to give negative feedback.Looking to put on a hitch mounted rack. 570303


Comments
I do recommend a hitch mounted rack for longer trips at highway speeds. If you need a hitch for the 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon I recommend etrailer hitch part # E98847. This class 3 hitch offers a tongue weight rating of 600 lbs, it will work well for carrying bikes on a bike rack. The etrailer hitch is matte black and corrosion resistant so it will look great on your brand new Subaru. For a hitch mounted bike rack I recommend the Thule hitching post pro part # TH934XTR. This bike rack will carry 4 bikes and features a built-in anti-rattle bolt that secures the rack to your hitch and reduces vibration and noise.

Very sturdy and easy to install. Very happy with the product. Used 2x for 4 hour drives from Ithaca and back. Minor suggestion...provide thin rubber squares to place between strap hooks and vehicle for extra protection from possible scratching. 771818

Ask the Experts about this Malone Hitch Bike Racks

  • Will the Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack MPG2127 Fit a 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300
    The Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack part # MPG2127 has a rather unique design which makes determining compatibility difficult, but not impossible. The biggest issue we see is the head which tilts back towards the vehicle, makes contact with the hatch. In order to see if that is the case for your 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 we will need to first measure up from the top inside edge of the receiver tube 29". Then once we are 29" above the inside edge of the receiver tube and centered over the hitch...

  • Bike Rack Solution that Allows Rear Cargo Area Access with Bikes Loaded
    We have bike rack solutions that allow for rear cargo area access with bikes loaded but the Malone Hanger # MPG2127 can't tilt with bikes loaded. Instead the best option would be a bike rack that swings out and away from the rear of the vehicle with bikes loaded like the SportRack Ridge Swing part # SR2415. I attached a picture this rack with it swung out with bikes loaded as well as a review video link for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Security and Longevity of Hauling 3 Bikes
    For a bike rack that will last a long time you're going to need to put some money into it, especially if you plan on using it a LOT. The Malone # MPG2127 and # MPG2130 and the Rola # 59403 hanging 3-bike racks do serve a purpose, but these are more entry-level bike racks that will get the job done but just aren't as neatly polished as some other racks. If you prefer a hook-and-loop type of straps for the bikes then the Reese Explore # 63123 is what you need. This is a very simple bike...

  • Will Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack Work on 2017 Hyundai Tucson
    The Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack # MPG2127 referenced in your question will work great on your 2017 Hyundai Tucson. On the bike rack, there is a distance of 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole on the shank to the upright mast. When we installed the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # C13240 on your Tucson, we measured a length of 4-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the rear bumper. This means the Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack will install...

  • Is Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack a Stable Bike Rack to Use in Hitch of 2014 Nissan Rogue
    Yes, a 3 bike rack like the Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack # MPG2127 has an arm length that is right in between the lengths of a 2 bike and a 4 bike rack. This rack is really stable. Especially in this price range. If you check out the test course video I attached you can see just how stable this rack is with bikes loaded and on the road. The clearance of the rack is also very standard and would easily fit and have enough clearance if installed on a 2014 Nissan Rogue like yours with a 2 inch...

  • Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack Compatibility with 2017 Range Rover Discovery
    The Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack # MPG2127 is a fit for a 2017 Range Rover Discovery. There is a 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole on the shank to the upright mast on this bike rack. This will work well with the factory trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle. You may also want to add a bike adapter bar like # 64005 for any step through frame bikes and then use Softride # SR18679 to keep your front wheels from hitting the car or each other.

  • Center of Hitch Pin Hole Location for Curt Class III Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Hyundai Tucson
    I saw that you input a 2016 Hyundai Tucson in for your vehicle information. When we installed the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13240 on a 2016 Tucson AWD we found from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the bumper measured 3-1/2". If you have a 2016 then that means you will have an extra inch of clearance when compared to the 4-1/2" of clearance you currently have with your OEM trailer hitch meaning the Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack # MPG2127 will clear that tailgate emblem.

  • Will the Malone Hanger 3 Fit a 2016 Toyota Prius
    The Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack part # MPG2127 is a class II and III only rated bike rack so it should not be used on your 2016 Toyota Prius as there are only class I hitch options available. That said, if you are using the Curt Class I Receiver Hitch part # C11473 then it will fit but if you are using the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch part # 24966 it may not if you have the weld stop installed inside the receiver tube opening.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Toyota RAV4 to Carry Malone Hanger Bike Rack MPG2127
    As long as you have a trailer hitch installed on your 2017 Toyota RAV4 the Malone bike rack part # MPG2127 will fit and work great. It fits both hitch sizes but whenever possible a 2 inch hitch is the way to go like the Draw Tite part # 76134 that fits your vehicle. 2 inch hitches have higher weight capacities and since they are the most popular hitch size they have the most accessories made for them. This one in particular is mostly hidden too since only the hitch opening hangs below the...

  • RV Approved Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry at Least 3 Bikes
    We have bike racks that are rated for use at the rear of an RV travel trailer but the Malone you mentioned is not. At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack for 2006 Chrysler Town and Country
    All of the trunk mounted 3 bike racks for your 2006 Chrysler Town and Country will have an upper arm with foam on the window. To get away from that, I recommend adding a trailer hitch receiver and using a hitch mounted bike rack. For your vehicle, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - 2" # 13389 if you have stow and go or the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver 2" # 75119 if you do not have stow and go. Then I recommend the Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2"...

  • Recommended 3 Bike Rack That Can Be Used on Both 1-1/4 and 2 Inch Hitch Receivers
    I have a solution for you, but the Hollywood Racks Road Runner # HR320 is only designed to fit on 2" receivers. Since you have both 1-1/4" and 2" receivers I recommend using the Malone Hanger # MPG2127 since it offers the same features and also comes with a locking hitch pin and locks for the bikes. I've linked a brief video of our road test of the Malone rack for you to have a look at as well.

  • Will The Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack Trunk Mount Fit With Spoiler Of 2019 BMW X1
    The Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms part # MPG2139 will fit the 2019 BMW X1 with standard OEM roof spoiler. It will not fit if the BMW has an aftermarket spoiler that sticks out further. The Malone is the only option for a trunk mount rack on the BMW X1 at this time. I have attached a video of the rack on a Subaru Outback Wagon with a very similar spoiler to the BMW. As you can see the top straps do put a lot of stress of the spoiler.

  • Why Cant Three-Bike Rack be Used with Class I Trailer Hitch on 2017 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # DT24959 that fits your 2017 Subaru Impreza hatchback will only work with one or two-bike racks because it is a Class I trailer hitch, and the issue is the amount of leverage being put on such a light weight hitch. Longer bike racks put more leverage and thus stress on the hitch, which could lead to potential damage without it being fully supported. The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7350, with its 2 inch receiver, on the other hand, will allow...
