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.

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 have to say that the design elements of this rack are extraordinary and the price is $100 less than Thule et al. Even better is that they are manufactured in my home state of Maine. 546622

Review from a similar Malone 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


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.

Ask the Experts about this Malone Hitch Bike Racks
Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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"...

  • 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.

  • 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.
