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. more

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. more

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. more

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. more

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. more

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. more

Speaker 1: Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Sonic we'll be taking a look the Yakima FullBack Trunk Mount 2 Bike Rack, that part number is Y02634. Now we already have one of our bikes installed on here, we're going to go over some features, show you have we secure our bike down, and take a few measurements.To start off how our bike is secured down we're going to have 3 straps all together, these are also known as ZipStrips, we'll have two on the frame here and one is our anti-sway in the back, which is going to help prevent our bike from swinging too far back and forth and possibly making contact with the other bikes. To release those we're going to pinch the two tabs on the sides and we'll just pull straight out. Then we can take our bike off and set it off to the side.One great thing about our cradles here is that they do have a rubber coating, they're gonna be cushioned to prevent any scratches or abrasions, they'll also allow for your brake lines to sit without causing any damage there. I do suggest you replace your ZipStrips so they don't get lost of damaged. Another great think about this rack is that we do have a bike lock on the end of the rack so you can secure that last bike and prevent both bikes from being taken off.Now we'll take a few measurements here. more
