What 3-Bike Rack do You Recommend for My 2021 Genesis GV80?


Will the outway hanging 3 bike work on a 2021 genesis gv80?


Expert Reply:

I have a great bike transporting solution for you. Unfortunately, I confirmed with Thule that the OutWay 3 # TH56BV does not fit on your 2021 Genesis GV80. Currently, Thule (or any other bike rack manufacturer) does not make a trunk-mounted bike rack solution for your GV80.

The best way route forward is to install a hitch and use a hitch-mounted bike rack. For the hitch, I recommend the Curt Hitch - 2" # C84UR. This hitch comes with a completely hidden design that conceals any unsightly crosstubes. This ultimately gives your new vehicle a sleek, factory look. Additionally, you receive a gloss outer coat over the base powder coat that offers you more protection from rust and corrosion than the competitor Draw-Tite 2" # DT49GR. The Curt involves an quicker installation time as well; it only takes about 40 minutes to complete.

As for the bike rack, I recommend the Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Steel # SA883. The Bones comes with a 35-pound maximum per-bike weight capacity and is 100% made in the U.S.A. Even though the Bones comes with an anti-rattle hitch pin, you can add a locking hitch pin with part # SA3022. To protect your bikes from theft, I recommend the Saris Cable Lock # SA981. Since the Bones measures 9-1/2" from the center of the shank's pinhole to the back of the mast, you do not have to worry about bumper clearance issues when the rack is attached to the # C84UR.

If you happen to have children's bikes, women's bikes, or bikes with step-thru frames, you need a bike frame adapter bar like the # 64005 to attach your bikes to the arms of the Bones.
