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

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

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

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

Oh my, I'm so happy with my bike rack. And your willingness to replace an incorrect part (even though it was me not understanding how it would work) makes me very happy. 860142

The amount you save on this bike will not counter the amount you pay for the damages to your bike after it fails on you on the highway. :-( When i purchased this rack June 2020, I was stoked for using it for my mountain bike this summer, and paying half the price of the competing brands out there. When i received the rack, I assembled it as the directions told me but then found out that the mounting piece was initially installed backwards by the manufacturer. I fixed that myself, but then the locking knob also broke off on initial install (see pic below). This is what caused problems. Not only could the bike not be secured without an additional lock, the actual knob broke off in transit. I made due by strapping my bike down with what i could--but eventually, on the highway, the top piece flew off and sent my bike dragging behind me until i could safely stop. The damage to the bike was about $600. Not only costly, but also very dangerous to me and the drivers behind me. So--my take away, is even though this rack looks ideal for your adventures--be aware, the components and initial assembly will fail on you. 856170

This bike rack is a great design. Easy to assemble and sturdy. I did have to purchase an additional receiver to fit my trailer but the original that came with the rack fits all my other vehicles. Super easy to interchange and use it on multiple vehicles and or RVs. I'm a perfectionist and very fussy when it comes to how things are built and this bike rack passes the test. 845892

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

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

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

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

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

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



- MPG2149

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

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...

  • Vertical Rise of Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack
    I reached out to my contact at Malone who said that the Malone RunWay 2-Bike Platform Rack # MPG2149 measures 8-1/4" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the pivot bolt.

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

    You'e in luck as there is a trailer hitch receiver that is a fit for a 2020 Hyundai Venue, which is the following: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C57CR This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, and is a complete bolt-on installation with no drilling needed. It also has a really nice concealed look, as you can see from the accompanying photo, so your '20 Venue will maintain it's aesthetic.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can Swagman XC Bike Rack be Used With Class I Hitch
    I know that there used to be an internal stopper on most Class I hitches which is why a lot of the bike rack manufacturers had those specific ratings on them, but there could still possibly be some differences. The best thing to do is stay within the limits of what the manufacturer has tested so between the Swagman XC # S64650 and the Malone Runway # MPG2149 I would go with the Malone since you have a Class I hitch. If you really want to avoid using the Runway then I recommend checking...

  • Curt 2 Bike Platform C18085 and Malone RunWay 2-Bike MPG2149 Through Bike Compatibility
    Both the Curt 2 # C18085 and the Malone RunWay 2 # MPG2149 will work with a step through bike like yours but you will need to get an adapter bar like the Rhino-Rack Bike Frame Adapter Bar # RRRBCA021. This will just go in between your handle bars and your seat! Both are pretty much that same thing but if it were me, I would get the Curt 2 just because it can fold in half for better storage and/or to unblock tailights. I've included a video to help show you how they work!

  • Recommended Hitches for a 2011 Ford Fusion or 2015 Honda Civic Sedan
    We do have solutions for both of these vehicles that are going to be custom fit and won't require any drilling. For your 2011 Ford Fusion I recommend using the Curt # C11390 and for your 2015 Honda Civic you'll want to use the Curt # C11391; Curt hitches generally have a much thicker powder coating on them, so they're going to stand up to the rigors of the road a little bit better and won't be as likely to get nicks in the coating that might lead to corrosion issues. These are both...
