Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Nissan Maxima

Today on our 2014 Nissan Maxima we're doing a test fit of the Tulle Raceway Pro Trunk-Mounted 2 Bike Rack, part number TH9001PRO. As you can see we do already have our bike on the rack, so we're just going to show you how we strap everything down to start. We've got two cradles holding in our bike and three straps, two on the frame here and one as your anti-sway strap. To release those we're just going to pull down and lift up, saving that anti-sway strap for last. It's going to keep the bike from swinging back and forth and possibly damaging either your rack, bike, or your vehicle. Take that off and set it off to the side. A good habit to get into is to always replace your straps. Now that we've got those back in place we can take a few measurements.


Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Nissan Maxima

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Nissan Maxima we're doing a test fit of the Yakima Hangout Two Trunk Mount Bike Rake, part number Y02637.Now we already have our bike secured down. We're first going to show you how we secure it in place. So, we have three straps all together. We've got two over the top portion of our bike or on the frame. And we have one as our anti-sway in the back. I'm going to start by pulling down and lifting up to release those then we can pull our bike off and set it off to the side.Now with our bike rake we do have stabilizer straps that you can wrap around your bikes to prevent them from moving back and forth and possibly making contact.


Thule Passage Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Nissan Maxima

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Nissan Maxima, we're doing a test fit of the Thule Passage Trunk Mount Two Bike Rack. That part number is TH910XT. Now we already have our bikes secured down. I'm first going to show you how we secure it in place. We have three straps altogether. We're going to have two over our frame and one as our anti sway strap in the back.


Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe we're going to be test fitting the Yakima 2-bike trunk-mount rack, part number Y02636. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's take a closer look here. Starting with our arms, at both arms we do have the bottle openers, which is pretty common with most Yakima bike racks. While the cradles are stationary, they do have the SuperCush material both at the base and at the top where the ZipStrip meets your frame to make sure that everything is not scratched up or marred up once it's being installed. It does have an anti-sway cradle which can be folded up out of the way to make loading and unloading the bikes much easier.


Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe we're going to be test fitting the Yakima FullBack 2-bike rack, part number Y02634. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's take a closer look and show off some of the features. Starting at the ends here, on the end of one of our arms we do have the trademark bottle opener. At the other we actually have an integrated cable lock which will wrap around your outermost bike and attach to this point and secure your bikes in place. These cradles here are stationary.


Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone RunWay 3-bike trunk-mounted rack. Part number MPG2142. This is what the Malone RunWay 3 looks like once it's installed on our vehicle. We go all three bikes installed in it already. We have an alternate frame bike, a road bike, and a kid's bike. This will also work with mountain bikes as well.



Malone Pilot 2 Bike Platform Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Trunk Mount, Malone Pilot 2-Bike Platform Rack, part number MPG2133. The Malone Pilot Platform Trunk Mount Rack is great for pairing up to two bikes of varying types and sizes. It can carry mountain bikes to road bikes, to alternate frame bikes, as well as kids bikes, although some may require the use of a bike adapter bar, which is sold separately and can be found on etrailer.com.Since this is a platform style bike rack, you're gonna have less bike to bike contact to worry about. Another assurance to make sure that doesn't happen is, we do have cradles that are adjustable, so you can shift the bikes to the right or to the left to make sure there's no contact as well. As opposed to most trunk mount bike racks, which are hanging style, these grip your bike by the frame up at the top. And then we have two wheel straps at the base to hold your tires in place.Once you have your bikes installed, there is a locking in cap here that, once turned, it'll just free spin and not loosen up or tighten.


Malone Hanger Trunk Mount 3 Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Malone Trunk Mount Hanger 3 Bike Rack, part number MPG2139.The Malone Hanger 3 Trunk Mount Bike Rack is a fast and easy solution to carry your bikes from one place to another. It can carry a wide variety of bikes ranging from your mountain bikes to your alternate frame bikes to your kids bikes and to road bikes as well.In some cases, when loading your bikes, especially those with alternate frames or kids bikes, you may need to use an adapter bar to have it fit properly on the bike rack. Malone does carry these, and you can find them on etrailer.com's website.It holds your bike in three locations. We're gonna have two straps up at the top tube. Our third point's gonna be the strap around the side here, and that's gonna be referred to as our anti-sway cage, which is gonna keep your bike from moving too far back and forth and causing bike to bike contact.The cradles are padded and have these grooves in them so that the cables on your bike will fit inside those instead of getting crushed up against your frame once it's been initially installed. The cradles are stationary, meaning they can't move back and forth or anything like that, but they are movable to accommodate different mounting styles.

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.. 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback
  • The best option we have for carrying a bike rack on a 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback is a hitch mounted option. Hitches are the most secure, easiest to load, do not affect fuel mileage, don't touch any painted surfaces, easiest to lock bikes and racks to and are not the most expensive route (that's roof rack). Trunk racks aren't quite as secure and they touch the vehicle paint so they aren't my first pick. Plus there are no trunk fits for the hatchback 2018 Civics. So a hitch option like...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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 Recommendation for a Leased 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Hatchback
  • I did some checking and there are some trunk mount bike racks that you can use on your leased 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-door hatchback. For a 2-bike rack you can use either the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 or the FullBack # Y02634. For 3 bikes the HalfBack model is # Y02635 and the FullBack model is # Y02633. These racks will work even if the vehicle has a rear spoiler at the top of the hatch because the rack is positioned in such a way as to not put any stress on the spoiler. I included a picture...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • Using Trunk Mounted Bike Rack on 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • Thule does not recommend using any rear strap-mounted bike rack on the Odyssey, due to the fact that the rear hatch that the rack would attach to is not strong enough to bear the weight of the rack and the bikes. Hollywood Racks makes a trunk mounted rack that would work for you. Their Over-The-Top model is available in a 2 bike version as part # HRF2 or as a 3 bike version, part # HRF2-3. The rack is designed differently than the Raceway Pro 3 you're asking about. The Over-The-Top uses...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carrier that Allows Rear Hatch to Open on 2015 Nissan Rogue
  • I will be happy to help you. First, if your 2015 Nissan Rogue does not already have a trailer hitch you will need one. I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75902. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. This is what you will need for the type of bike carrier you are looking for. I have linked a video showing how the hitch installs. For a bike carrier that will allow you to open the rear hatch with or without the bikes loaded I recommend the Vertex swinging bike carrier...
