Trunk Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 BMW X1

Question:

Hi there, I have two vehicles: a 2017 BMW X1, and a 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF. Ideally, I would be looking for a 3-bike rack that fits both vehicles. Does such a product exist? If not, I would want to stick with the rack that fits best on the 17 BMW X1. So far Ive found Thule and Hollywood racks that would seem to work with the X1. For example, this: TH9002PRO Can you please advise which will be best and which will be simplest to install and remove? Cheers,

The Thule Raceway Pro 3 part # TH9002PRO is a confirmed fit for your 2017 BMW X1 and would be a great option. That said, there isn't a 3 bike trunk or hitch rack that's going to fit your 2017 Miata. I wish there was a great option for that vehicle but nothing would work.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 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.
