Thule Spare Tire Bike Racks Review - 2013 Jeep Wrangler

Malone RunWay Spare Tire Mount 3 Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone Spare Tire Mount RunWay Three-Bike Rack, part number MPG2148.The Malone RunWay Three-Bike Rack for spare tire mounts enables you to carry up to three bikes with varying styles, ranging from your mountain bikes to your alternate frame bikes to your road bikes and to some kids' bikes as well. It does come with a stabilization strap to wrap around all the frames of the bikes as well as the bike rack itself to keep all bikes together while traveling.It'll hold your bike in place at two points. The top frame straps here, and with some cases, such as the alternate frame bike racks, you may need an adapter bar, which is sold separately on Since this bike rack doesn't come with one, Malone also offers various cable locks, which you can also purchase separately on cradles are padded to ensure there's going to be no scratches or abrasions to the frame of your bike, and it also has grooves in it, so if you have cables like this one it won't get smashed up against the frame once installed and actually will sit in those grooves. I've gone ahead and taken the bikes off just to show you a few more features. Now, with the cradles, I would like to point out that these are adjustable back and forth and side to side, if necessary, by loosening and tightening the screws here and then retightening them up once you have them in the spot that you need them.Notice that the arms are angled out in kind of a strange fashion.

Malone Spare Tire Bike Racks Review - 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Speaker 1: Today on our 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited we're going to be test fitting the Malone spare tire mount Runway 3 bike rack, part number MPG2148. We already have a bike installed on the rack, let's take a closer look and show off some of the features. How the bike is attached to the rack we're going to have two straps up at the tops here, then we're going to have these padded cradles underneath to ensure that the frame of our bike doesn't have any scratches or abrasions on it after installing. The cradles can be adjusted back and forth to accommodate loading and you do this by loosening and tightening the screws at the base here and getting them to the location you need them.Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside, remove the straps, and just lift it right off. With the bike rack in this position, I'm going to give you a quick measurement, measuring from the edge of our tire to our outer edge we've added about 27 inches to the rear of the vehicle. When the bike is not in use, or is taken off, you can fold these down by turning these handles on either side up to put them in the unlocked position, you can see that where the teeth separate, and then you can actually lower this down, and fold it flat against the tire.
