Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - MPG2149

Average Customer Rating:  4.3 out of 5 stars   (20 Customer Reviews)

- MPG2149

Product arrived well packed and in a timely manor. Assembly is straight forward, good instructions that are simple to read. I do wish they would add some suggestions for storing this device when not in use. It is heavy so if considering a wall mount, I suggest using at least two (2) brackets at 32" apart and lag bolted ( 2 1/2 inch ) into a good wall stud. This method will distribute the weight and lessen the likelihood of it pulling free, falling and damaging something else. Overall, a really nice product. 784307

I use the center hold down bar, the lock come off 667140

- MPG2149

The bike rack has provided good service and utility. Im very pleased with it's easier of operation and overall strength. Living in Hawaii has it's challenges, especially rust, I have not experienced any rust thus far and am very happy to report that. Overall I would rate the product as a 9 on a scale of 10, the one pitfal was in ease of installation, it took longer than expected to secure the Hitch in the receiver. 705624

Great Rack. Light and managable. Does the job. 707529

- MPG2149

Thank you so much Molly. You're the best. I will forever recommend etrailer to anyone who ask. Love it. [Thumbs up] 717896

- MPG2149

The swing arm came with the predrilled holes for the lock pin off by about half an inch, so I had to drill new holes. Even then, the hole for the pivot point also seems slightly off. Once I got new holes drilled, it holds on nice and sturdy and doesn't knock about while driving. The locking mechanism, while clever, seems flimsy. Might just be for preventing crimes of convenience. 720060

- MPG2149

For the price and the offered features, I thought this rack would be too good to pass up. But now I see exactly why the name brand racks cost so much. This thing has some terrible build quality meaning that I had to hammer in the large peg so that it would even go together, and now that it is, I can't fold it up or down. It has to stay exactly how it is. But hey, it works, and it was cheap. If you want to buy this, don't, save up and get something that will give you less of a headache. 711136

This Malone Bike Rack only took about 10 minutes to assemble. The missing star is due to one of the lock keys being broken in the box. Still waiting on Malone (maker of the rack) to respond. THe staff at eTrailer have been the best. Thank you all. 540781

- MPG2149

Would have given a 5 rating except for several things mostly related to manufacturing quality. etrailer site was great and technical support was helpful. Nice added feature would have been two locking knobs instead of one. Problems encountered: 1 1/4 inch bar would not slide into my receiver on Avalon. Other products I have slide in easily. Wanted to file paint off Malone unit but etrailer suggested I file inside of receiver & add grease. After many filings and some grease it finally went in. Also had to enlarge each of the pin holes used to hold unit in folded up position so that pin would slide in. In the folded down position holes line up perfectly. 665407

For a tilt-away hitch rack, this is a good value. Depending on the bikes, you may have to disassemble and reposition the tire cradles to accommodate different wheelbases. The same is true for the hold down hooks, depending on the height of bicycles' top tube. As such, the assembly instructions would benefit from some text as well as the drawings. A chart showing a recommended configuration for various bike height and wheelbase combinations would be very helpful. Plan on at least an hour to assemble the rack, see how the bikes load and fit, and then adjust and/or transpose the cradles and hooks. Bottom line is I would buy this again, especially for infrequent use. If I were, say, a once or twice a week biker, then I'd pony up the extra $$ for a tire mount rack instead of the center post frame mount. On a side note, the etrailer bike rack categories, subgroups, and pictures make bike rack shopping a breeze. One of the best designed shopping assistance interfaces I've seen for any product. 661009

just got it, have yet to use it, five star rating is based off of ease of building and apparent sturdiness. i've been driving around with it on my subaru forester in the upright compact position and it seems pretty great. will be using it on fathers day to go biking with my dad. sturdy, doesn't rattle, good looking. 817481

- MPG2149

We love it. Easily mounted and easy to dismount bike. Best feature is the ability to lower without taking rake off to get in back of our Ford Explorer. 806056

- MPG2149

Great bargain. For the money it’s good. The locking knob sucked and broke they mailed me a new one.(same thing) I use 2 nuts instead that I bought at Home Depot and tighten with a wrench. Also the foam that protects the bike frames wore thru in 2 uses. I wrapped it in black tape and it’s holding up. Use this rack for bikes you are not too worried about scratching. The original foam leaves a black stain residue it comes off easy with a wd40 wipe.. I use for the camping bicycles so to me it is a good option cheap and cheerful. I didn’t have to put out $500 for a nice tire held mount but I leave it on the camper full time. I do have a nice high end rack I use with the nice bikes. It may seem that it’s not a great review. I’m just being honest about my experience. I would buy it again No doubt. It was cheap. I don’t worry of it being stolen. Etc. 796091

Simple assembly, easy load and unload, bikes secure with minimal fuss and no interference with each other 795473

Great product at a great price 733316

- MPG2149

Padding on arms rubbed against frame top tube and wore off some paint. Wheel tie down straps aren't long enough to wrap around some fatter tires. Locking/unlocking mechanism isn't very good and not worth the trouble, I put regular wingnut on there now. 678435

- MPG2149

400 miles and held up well. $1500 worth of bikes, so I stopped a few times to make sure everything was holding up. It did well! You can decide which way to put the “hooks” that go over the frame onto the rack when you assemble it. This will eliminate the problem of not being able to secure both bikes if one frame is lower. It’s also heavy as heck (with the bikes on it) to tilt to access the cargo in the hatch. For me, I can handle it...for my wife, not so much. Don’t plan on getting to the cargo unless you are strong and have a good back. 678159

Solid product. Installation was quick and easy! I have bought from Etrailer before and have always received a quality product in a timely manner. Their web site is fast and intuitive. Their customer service is outstanding. 660265

- MPG2149

Product was easy to assemble, looks to be well built and designed. I think this rack will be perfect for transporting our bikes. I feel is is a great deal for the price. 642770

- MPG2149

Great service and terrific product. Chris answered all my questions and delivery was super fast. Used it the first time this week with no problems. Did have our grandson put it together. Took him 20 minutes (would have taken us 2 hours)! Much lighter than our old bike rack and I was able to lift my bike on and off myself (I am 77!). It answered our needs. 571891


Ask the Experts about this Malone Hitch Bike Racks

  • Comparing the Malone RunWay and Swagman XC Bike Racks
    To keep the bikes from making contact with each other as well as the back of the vehicle I recommend only looking at platform style bike racks such as # MPG2149 and the Swagman XC # S64650. With the hanging style racks you referenced the bikes will likely make contact with each other though it is unlikely they would make contact with the vehicle. All bike racks will have some movement when installed. Both the RunWay and XC have an anti-rattle hitch bolt to limit the movement but keep...

  • Can Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack # MPG2149 Attach to Woman's Bike
    Yes, the arms of the Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack # MPG2149 that you referenced can go low enough to allow connection to a woman's bike that has a lower top frame tube. I attached a picture that shows this as well as a review video link for you to check out as well.

  • Can Locking Hitch Pin Replace Threaded Hitch Pin on Bike Rack for 2 Trailer Hitch
    If the bike rack initially comes with a threaded hitch pin like the Malone # MPG2149 or the Curt # C18085 then a locking hitch pin like part # 5201 that you referenced won't actually fit. I do have some alternatives though that you can check out. For a platform style rack like what you were referring to I recommend the Hollywood Racks TRS # HR3500 which has a locking hitch pin like the # 5201 but the anti-rattle feature is integrate into the bike rack shank so it is much easier to utilize....

  • Great Priced Bike Rack for Fat Tire Bikes
    A 4 inch wide bike tire would fall under the category of a "fat tire" so you'd need to go with a platform bike rack that has wider wheel hoops to accommodate this. For that the best option similar to the Malone you mentioned is the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2 Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # HR200Z-FB. This can fit tires up to 5 inches in width, is incredibly stable, and is at a really great price point. Check out the review video I attached as well. This rack also fits 1-1/4 inch hitches.

  • Could Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack # MPG2149 Fit 2016 Honda CR-V
    Yes, the Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack # MPG2149 that you referenced would fit and work really well in the 2 inch hitch of your 2016 Honda CR-V! I attached a review video for this rack in the 2 inch hitch of a similar SUV to yours for you to check out as well.

  • How To Use a 2 Inch Bike Rack On a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI
    For starters, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Euro Drawbar part # C114122 is not a fit for your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI. The comparable option we have is Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24866. However, you cannot use a class I 1-1/4" trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" to 2" adapter like part # MT70032 because all of the adapters require a class II hitch with a 1-1/4" opening. If you were to use the two together the weight capacity of your trailer hitch will...

  • Is There a Fat Tire Adapter Kit for the Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack MPG2149
    I do have an option for you but I cannot confirm the Swagman Fat Bike Tire Wheel Adapter part # S64674 will work with the Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack part # MPG2149 as they are made by two different manufactures. I called Malone and they do not offer a fat tire adapter kit for the Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack. Therefore, you have two options which would be to either deflate the tires on the fat bike and then use extra support to secure them to the wheel hoops or you can get...

  • Will the Swagman XTC-2 TILT 2-Bike Platform Rack Fit a 2012 VW GTI
    The only trailer hitches available for a 2012 Volkswagen GTI are class I, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11000 is what I recommend since it offers the easiest installation. In order for the bike rack to be compatible, it must be rated for use on class I hitches. The Swagman XTC-2 TILT 2-Bike Platform Rack part # S64671 is only class II rated so it won't work. Instead, I recommend the Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack part # MPG2149 which should allow you to open the hatch with...
