Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 BMW 528i

Question:

Hi, Im looking for a hitch for my 2014 528i BMW but I only see the option for a 535 or 550. I will be using it for a Bike rack, do you know why it is not available for 528i?

I have a solution that will allow you to transport bikes with your 2014 BMW 528i, but there are no hitches available for your vehicle.

Instead you would want the trunk mounted Thule Raceway part # TH9001PRO.

What makes this rack far superior to the others is the attachment system. It uses 4 retractable coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle rather than 6 nylon straps like other racks. This makes installation quick and easy and the cables also last longer.

The cables store inside the rack so there are no loose straps ends to flap around. The cables can also be locked into position to deter theft of the rack. And there is also an integrated cable lock in the last bike position to deter bike theft.

This rack also features the latest and greatest in cradles. The cradles have road dampening technology which protects bike frames better than other cradles.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
