You'll see on the inside of those straps, it's going to have a rubber coating to prevent any scratches or abrasions from our straps onto our bike. It's going to be really great for those bikes that you don't want to mess up the paint job on.Another great thing about our cradles is that the bottom ones do fold up, so this is great whenever we're trying to remove our bike racks.

We'll also have grooves down in there so that our brake lines can fit evenly and we won't have to worry about any damage to those as well.Now we'll take a few measurements here.

Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2017 Chevrolet Equinox

Speaker 1: Today in our 2017 Chevrolet Equinox we're going to be test fitting the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack Part No. Y02634. This is the hatch mount style bike rack. We already have a bike installed so let's take a closer look and show off some of the features.Starting off at the ends of the arms here on one end we are going to have the traditional Yakima bottle opener. However on the other we do have an integrated cable lock so once you we're to put your second bike on here you would take this out, wrap it around and come back to this point and lock it into place therefore adding some security for your bike rack once it's installed. How it attaches the bike to the bike rack we're going to have three points of contact.


Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2017 Chevrolet Equinox

Speaker 1: Today in our 2017 Chevrolet Equinox we're going to be test fitting the Yakima HalfBack 2 Bike Rack Part No. Y02636. This is a hatch mount bike rack as you can see. We already have a bike installed on the rack so let's take a closer look and show off some of the features.At the ends we have two bottle openers so once you're done riding the bike you can crack open a cold one. We also have a grip by three points on our rack here, excuse me on our bike here. We're going to have two zip strips up at the top two and then one off the side which is going to serve as an anti-sway cradle to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth and possibly causing bike to bike contact.


Malone Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2008 Chevrolet Impala

Speaker 1: Today on our 2008 Chevrolet Impala, we're going to be test fitting the Malone Hanger 3 Trunk Mount Bike Rack, part number NPG2142. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's take a closer look and show off some of the features.The cradles are adjustable back and forth and side to side and can be tightened down with this Phillips head screw, here, and they are padded as well as they have these grooves on the inside of them, here, so the cables your bike can rest inside there instead of being smashed up against the frame once you install your bike.It does have these very flexible strips to tighten them down and there's only going to be two points of contact and that's going to be these points at the top frame. It does also come along with this stabilization strap, here. We only have it wrapped on our tire just to make sure it doesn't make contact with our vehicle, but it does come with two straps that you would put around all three bikes as well as the bike rack itself to keep everything together and keep it from moving back and forth while you drive.There is an issue that I'd really like to point out, here. In this particular case with how we have this set up, the pedal may make contact with your vehicle, so you may need to have something, a pad of some sort, to wrap around your pedal to make sure it doesn't damage your vehicle once you drive.Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside.

Trunk Bike Racks Questions and Answers

  • Which 2 Bike Rack Will Work On A Ford Escape Without A Trailer Hitch
  • Since you do not have a hitch on your Ford Escape you can use a trunk bike rack. Thule and Yakima will both have two choices each that will carry two bikes and fit a Ford Escape. The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, will fit on a Ford Escape. It has a weight capacity of 70 lbs. and attaches to the vehicle by six straps for added stability..

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • Typically we do not recommend using trunk mounted bike racks on vehicles that have spoilers. Most plastic and fiberglass spoilers cannot handle the weight of a bike rack and bikes and will bend or even break sooner or later. If the spoiler on your 2013 Mazda 3 hatchback is metal and part of the rear hatch, rather than a separate plastic or fiberglass spoiler, then you can use a trunk mounted bike rack without having to worry about the weight of the rack damaging the spoiler. You can...

  • How to Prevent Theft of a Trunk Mounted Bike Rack
  • The only anti-theft device we have for using a trunk mounted bike rack like the Thule Passage part # TH910XT is the Thule Passive Security Strap # TH533. You will basically loop the nylon covered steel strap around the frame of the rack to form a slip knot and then would close the puck of the strap in the trunk so that the only way to fully separate the rack from the vehicle would be to open the trunk. Another option is the Thule Raceway trunk rack part # TH9001PRO. All of the straps...

  • Recommended Bike Carrier For 2015 Honda CR-V
  • There are a couple different style bike racks that may work for you. You stated you want a bike rack that goes behind your CR-V and not on the roof. We offer trunk mount bike racks and the other style bike rack we offer would be a hitch-mounted bike rack. The trunk mount bike rack I recommend is the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier, part # SA805. This is an easy bike rack to put on and take off the rear of your CR-V. It uses 6 straps to secure it to the back of the vehicle and has an...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation and Comparison of Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2-Bike Trunk Racks
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack. The difference between the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and the FullBack # Y02634 is that the FullBack comes with integrated locks that lock the bikes to rack and rack to vehicle. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches. But honestly it...

  • How to Carry a Womens Bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack
  • All you would need is an adapter bar to carry a women's bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack part # SA805BL. An adapter bar like the part # 64005 would attach to the seat post of your bike and at the steering stem to provide a horizontal attachment point for the bike rack. Check out the review video I attached for this product as well.

  • What Trunk-Mount Bike Carriers Will Clear Rear Spoiler on 2010 Lexus RX350
  • A rear spoiler often poses a challenge to the fit of a trunk-mount bike carrier. Several manufacturers offer carriers designed expressly for compatibility with this feature, but note that in most instances it is recommended that only a 2-bike carrier be used on such vehicles, including your Lexus RX350. Note also that a rear wiper cannot be used with a trunk-mount carrier installed. I have provided a link to our product page for trunk-mount 2-bike carriers that can be used on your RX350....

  • Differences Between the Thule Archway, Gateway and Passage
  • The best of the three you mentioned is the Thule Archway XT part # TH9009XT. This rack has an integrated cable lock and upgraded frame cradles. Aside from that it is the exact same as the # TH9006XT. The big advantage the two mentioned racks have over the # TH910XT is the adjustable arms. This rack has a fixed position for the arms of the rack so the bikes might be carried at a sharp angle. The other two racks allow you to adjust the angle of the arms so that the bikes can be carried...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes with a Toyota Prius V
  • What you have read is correct. The only hitches available for the Prius V are Class I. The bike rack and hitch manufacturers all agree that more than 2 bikes should be carried on a rack installed in a Class I receiver. Two factors contribute to this, the low 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the Class I receiver and the fact that any additional bikes after the second one would extend the load far enough rearward of the receiver opening that the extra leverage exerted could either damage...

  • Will the Saris Bones Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a Honda CR-V
  • I you can tell me the year of your Honda CR-V I can make some specific recommendations. If it is a model that has a spare tire mounted on the back then we do have some spare tire racks that are likely to fit. And for models that do not have a rear mounted spare tire I am sure that we have trunk mount racks that will fit. The Saris Bones bike rack, # SA805, is listed as a fit from Saris for the 2012 to 2014 Honda CR-V. These models did not have the spare tire mounted on the back. I have...

  • Thule Raceway Platform 9003PRO 2 Bike Rack Upgrades From the 9003
  • I spoke to my contact at Thule and she informed me that the differences between the Thule Raceway Platform Bike Rack part # TH9003 and TH9003PRO include upgraded support arms for the tray assembly. The cable ratchet assemblies now lock on both sides of the rack instead of just the one side. And finally the frame clamps have upgraded padding in them that uses their RDT padding (Road Dampening Technology).

  • Recommended Bike Rack To Fit a 2012 Fiat 500C Convertible
  • For your 2012 Fiat 500c, which is the convertible model, I would recommend to use a hitch and a hitch bike rack. A trunk bike rack will not be able to be used on the convertible model. The hitch I would recommend would be the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24873. This hitch will bolt-on to the rear of your vehicle. I am including a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video of the hitch being installed on a Fiat 500. You will be limited to hauling 2...

  • Recommended Carrier for Schwinn Meridian Adult Trike on Toyota Prius
  • All of the hitches for the Toyota Prius are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers, so as long as you have a Class I trailer hitch you can use Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000R (for longer wheelbases) or # HR1000 and then add Trike Adapter, # HRTRK-ADP, to carry the trike. This set up is Class I compatible. I have linked instructions for you on the racks and adapter. You will need to stay within the 200 pound tongue weight rating of a class I hitch or the tongue weight rating...

  • Are Adapter Bars Required to Load Womens Bikes on the Thule Passage Trunk Mount Bike Carrier
  • If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005 as a lower cost alternative. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.

  • Trunk-Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for an Audi Q5 Without A Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • Vehicles like your 2013 Audi Q5 that have a rear roof-level spoiler can pose a challenge to fitting a trunk-mount bike rack. However, you can use the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier, part # HRF2. This unique 2-bike carrier is designed expressly to be compatible with roof-line spoilers by its use of upper arms that extend above and over the spoiler. Please refer to the linked photo and video that illustrate this carrier and its installation. If you need to transport more...

  • Recommended 3-Bike Trunk-Mount Rack for 2007 Honda Odyssey Van
  • For your 2007 Honda Odyssey the trunk-mount bike rack that I suggest is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. This unique carrier features an innovative arched frame design that allows it to work well on vehicles with spoilers. Many otherwise excellent racks cannot be used on such vehicles but the HRF2-3 will avoid any interference with the rear spoiler. If any of the bikes does not have a horizontal top frame tube, such as some women's and alternative design bikes,...

  • What Rear Mounted Bike Rack Will Fit On 2005 Honda CRV With Outside Mounted Spare Tire
  • For your 2005 Honda CRV with the outside mounted spare tire, the Thule Spare Time Bike Rack # TH963PRO would be a great choice.The Spare Time has a total weight capacity of 75 lbs. for two bikes. The Yakima SpareRide 2 Bike Carrier, # Y02599, also might work if you take two measurements to be sure. First, the diameter of the center hole in your spare tire wheel needs to be larger than 1-3/16 inches. Second, the distance from the back of the wheel, where the mounting plate will bolt to...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Yes, the Thule Raceway 3 Bike Carrier, # TH9002PRO, will work great on your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon. I recently had the chance to install this rack on a vehicle and it is the easiest to install and remove trunk mount rack that I have used. For this reason, this is the rack I personally would choose for a trunk mount rack. You will need to remove the rack to open the rear of the vehicle because the bottom support on the rack will rest on the top of the bumper when properly installed,...

  • Installing a Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Rack on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • You may not have to open the hatch to install the lower hooks of the Thule Raceway # TH9001PRO. Usually on a vehicle with a rear hatch you can get the hooks in at the corners without having to open the hatch. You would then just slide them over into position. This is what I have to do on my PT Cruiser and my wifes Santa Fe and it works well. On a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee it looks like you would have to start the bottom hooks just below the tail lights and then slide them down from there....

  • Bike Carrier for Schwinn Meridian 26-Inch Trike and Mountain Bike on Honda Ridgeline
  • According to my research Honda announced on July 12, 2013 that they were going to end production of the Ridgeline after the 2014 model year. A redesigned model is anticipated for 2016. Perhaps you have a 2014 model year? The 72-lb shipping weight of your Schwinn trike means that the bike itself probably weighs about 65-lbs, which is more than most trunk-mount bike carriers can handle. This makes a hitch and hitch-mount bike carrier the best option for your vehicle. If you don't have...
