- MPG2103

etrailer offered an exceptional price and quick easy ordering. Product was shipped within a reasonable time. Looking forward to taking my mountain bike and epic surf ski on weekend campouts on the easy to use and low cost Malone rack. 506491

- MPG2103

Is nice, it is easy to place the bike, the only thing that I do not like, is that it shaking a little in the expressway 611913

- MPG2103

Easy install, but couldn't hold up to the wind. It bent in the wind. 851190

- MPG2103

Works well, and is adjustable for multiple bike type and sizes. The only complaint is the installation instructions were less than informative. 837093

- MPG2103

We love this bike rack, so much so that we ordered 2! Our VW Jetta is too close to the ground for a rack on the back, but these roof racks are highly adjustable and keep our bikes locked and secure. Great product! 822904

- MPG2103

We've had them about a year now. The two of them set up on my rigid tonneau cover which came with roof rack style rails. Bought the tonneau cover with the intent to put our bikes up on the back of the truck when we tow our RV. The initial setup took a little time but otherwise they've been great. Easy to take it off last fall and putting the rack back on the truck this spring was a breeze. The bikes are safe and stable. I would definitely recommend this product. 818507

- MPG2103

We are not happy with the rack. You need to lock the arm I place and the key is not a strong key as well as the lock doesn't turn easily. We broke one key already and the Malone company replaced the key and lock which was nice however the same issue with the new lock and key remains. We are afraid to use it knowing the key will break as its tough to turn. I would not recommend this rack. I recently have been looking at other racks to replace this one. You probably don't want me to put these comments on the site. Hopefully others like the rack. 805162

- MPG2103

The bike rack has worked great. We attached it to a Malone trailer with Malone kayak carriers and we can tow the bikes and kayaks behind our RV. Good Minnesota fun. 783774

- MPG2103

A great product for the price- easy to install and has worked well for our family trips! 778844

- MPG2103

Works well for my plus size tire MTN Bike. Gave it 3 stars because one of the nuts came with the threads stripped. Made me question the quality of the nuts and bolts that hold the rack to my cross rails. Other than that it holds my bike well and the price was right for my budget. Good rack for a good price. We'll see how long it holds up. 770489

- MPG2103

I took two of these on my RAV4 on a 500 mile trip to Northern Michigan. Each one had a bicycle on the roof. They were pointed opposite directions as recommended. The wind noise was noticeable and the gas mileage was noticeably lower, but that is to be expected and something to get used to. This product does a good job holding the bikes securely over bumps and turns. Don't worry that there is some give and flex. That is normal. We found it difficult to reach high enough to secure the bikes so I bought a folding two-step ladder at Lowes to help with this. Two negatives were that the locks could be turned open too far, and they would lock open. This required disassembly of the lock to re position the internal mechanism. Also, one of the wing nuts was stripped from the start and I had to rig up my own threaded bolt as a replacement. Overall, for the price, this is a great product. It is not as easy to use as more expensive products, but if you want to save money, you need to expect fewer quick assembly features. 766199

- MPG2103

Product is what i expected. Poor craftmanship in regards to the end caps that button up the empty tubes. fitment was poor and they fell off within the first five miles. I guess i could replace them , but they were poorly executed as far as engineering. 729439

- MPG2103

I bought this rack to mount in a custom location. I thought about buying all the components individually and then spotted this rack that had everything I needed at a great price. I just needed to fabricate a couple of custom mounting brackets for the tray and a support brace for the wheel arm. It works great! 724949

- MPG2103

Easy to install and easy to load a bike on will sand more pictures with a bike as well soon 680312

- MPG2103

I ordered this product from trailer a year ago and have been completely satisfied. It has held up well and is easy to use. I also like the fact that I can lock my bike down on the rack when it is on top of my car. Good price as well. ETrailer was also helpful in talking to me about making sure it would fit when I called them. In short, a great experience all around. 663910

- MPG2103

I bought two of these for my Passat wagon. Great product. Very well made. Almost no wind noise. Very stable. The only issue to look out for is that you need to be fairly strong to lift the bikes up onto your roof. 625394

  • How to Carry Bikes on 2006 Toyota RAV4 Without Trailer Hitch
    We have an option for you to carry bikes on your 2006 Toyota RAV4 without using a trailer hitch, but I checked and no rack manufacturers make a bike rack that will fit over the spare tire cover on your RAV4; this type of rack just doesn't exist, unfortunately. Without a trailer hitch receiver, your only option is a roof rack, and that will depend on if your '06 RAV4 has factory installed raised rails or a naked roof. - Raised Rails: Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215 - Naked...

    I reached out to Malone and the minimum crossbar spread of their Pilot TC roof bike rack, part # MPG2103, is 24 inches. They also stated that using the Pilot on a spread of 23.62 inches wouldn't be an issue since it's so close.

The Rola Sport GTX rack includes integrated locks and channel mounts, giving you a wide range of flexibility beyond the bike rack.

    As long as your 2017 Mini Clubman has a factory roof rack with crossbars that run from left to right the Malone Pilot TC ST part # MPG2103 that you referenced will fit and work well.

  • Recommended Raised Side Rails and Crossbars for 2012 Honda Odyssey
    Since you have the naked roof without the raised side rails, I recommend first adding the etrailer Raised Side Rails for Roof Rack - Black Powder Coated Steel # E99033 confirmed to fit your van. Then I recommend using the Inno Crossbars # INXB145-153 and Flush Feet # INXS100. We don't have any installers we recommend in different locations, so we simply suggest if you aren't comfortable doing the installation yourself that you take your parts to a trusted friend or a mechanic you trust...

For a bike carrier, you can go with fork mount options like the Rola Canyon Rooftop Bike Carrier part # 59404, frame mount options like the Yakima Raptor Aero Roof Mounted Bike Carrier part # Y02093, or wheel mount options like the Malone Pilot TC ST Roof Bike Rack part # MPG2103.

  • Cost Effective Crosrsbar and Bike Rack Solution for Retrax Pro XR Tonneau Cover
    Rhino Rack has the most cost effective crossbar solution for the Retrax Pro XR tonneaus like what you have with the part # RRVA165B-RRRLT600 which was specifically designed for your application. The other brand options are more expensive and I wouldn't say any higher quality so the Rhino Rack is what I would recommend for you, and also what I would personally go with if I were in your situation. Then for a bike rack the Malone Pilot TC ST part # MPG2103 that you mentioned would be a...

  • Recommendation for Towing Pop-up Camper with 2016 Silverado 1500 and 4 Bikes
    I've tried every possible option I can think of to get that bike rack and adapters to allow you to tow at the same time and unfortunately there really isn't a solution that will work with a single hitch receiver compatible with your 2016 Silverado 1500 because multiple adapters are not an option due to the restriction on tongue weight. An option is to use a front mounted hitch like # C31069 with the bike rack and then use the rear receiver for towing your trailer, but that does seriously...

  • Recommendation for Carrying Bikes on 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL450 with Active Curve System
    There is not a Class I trailer hitch receiver confirmed to fit your vehicle from any of our manufacturers. As you stated the Class III # C13190 will also not fit due to the Active Curve System, so there is not a hitch option for you at this time. The only options we have that aren't roof mounted are the SeaSucker Hornet # 298-BH1302 or the SeaSucker Komodo # 298-BK1910-BK. I know it isn't convenient to lift your bikes to your roof, but it in my opinion is the best option for you...

  • Roof Rack and Accessories for a 2001 Ford Excursion
    For a roof rack that fits your factory rails and replaces your crossbars, I recommend checking out the Rhino Rack Aero, which consists of the Quick Mount Legs # RRRLT600 and Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA137S-2. You would have to remove your current crossbars, but once you do, the Vortex Aero should be a big improvement, allowing you to carry bikes and a kayak. The aero design of the bars reduce wind noise and has channels to allow a larger variety of accessories to be used. There are...

  • What Is The Best Way To Carry Bikes On A Pop Up?
    Adding a roof rack like the SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack # SR1020 would require drilling to install. The rack installs on the roof of your pop-up camper by first picking out the desired location of the roof rack. You will then take a 1/8-inch drill bit and drill holes through the roof that line up with the holes on the feet of the roof rack. Using the included hardware you will then bolt the crossbars onto your roof to secure the roof rack. It has a weight capacity of 200lbs so that...

    I have a solution for you, however the Rola GTX Sport, part # 59734 is not a confirmed fit for your 2014 Toyota Corolla S. Instead, I recommend the Rola Rail Extreme DFE Series, part # R5005. This will give you an easy to install and mount to roof rack kit that can carry your bike. You will want to verify your roof's weight capacity prior to installing or using the roof rack, and remember that the lowest capacity will determine the overall capacity of the system.

  • Recommended Roof Rack For Nissan Rogue With Factory Side Raised Rails
    If you have factory side raised rails that run front to back the 2013 Nissan Rogue Roof Rack by Malone # MPG215 will fit. This system will fit side rails that are between 1" and 2-1/4" wide and have a max height of 1-1/2". The feet on this unit are going to allow the unit to easily attach to your factory raised side rails on the Rogue. They're going to feature cam assist bolts that ensure a tight fit on smaller side rails, and they are padded. So where they grip around the side rails they...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Malone Roof Rack on 2016 Infiniti QX50
    The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 is a great option for a roof rack on your 2016 Infiniti QX50 with raised side rails and the 58 inch bars will allow you to easily fit a pair of bike racks. For a compatible bike rack I recommend the Malone Pilot TC ST Roof Bike Rack # MPG2103 because it is a wheel-mounted bike rack that will protect your bikes because it does not require any contact with your bike's frame when they are being transported. The Pilot TC ST will also accommodate...

  • Carrying 4 Bikes on a 2014 Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid
    I have a solution for you but there are a few limitations with a Class I hitch that will change how you load the vehicle. A Class I hitch like the Curt, part # C11276 is limited to only carrying two bikes. A Class I hitch is designed to only have weight relatively close to the vehicle, so adding a third bike can risk significant damage to the vehicle and the hitch. I can't recommend the setup that you've looked at for that reason. Before I get into the recommendations for your...

The best option for you to carry 4 bikes on your 2012 Honda Odyssey van would be to use a roof mounted bike rack along with your hitch mounted rack that you already have for your hitch. If your van already has a roof rack with crossbars, then I recommend the Malone Pilot TC ST Roof Bike...

  • Carrying 6 Bikes on a 2012 Honda Odyssey
    There's a couple ways to do this, but the first thing you'll want to verify is your vehicle's towing capacity and roof capacity with your manufacturer to make sure you don't exceed your capacity. A quick tip on this setup is that the two 16 inch bikes are likely best carried in the rear cargo area of the vehicle, as there's only a few hitch racks that can carry them. Either way, you'll need to attach a hitch to get the best capacity out of your vehicle. I recommend using the Draw-Tite...
