SeaSucker Komodo Trunk Bike Rack Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the SeaSucker Komodo bike rack. It's available in black with part number 298-BK1910-BK, in silver, part number 298-BK1910-SV, in gold with part number 298-BK1910-GO, and finally aqua blue, part number 298-BK1910-AB. Carry your road bike in style with the SeaSucker Komodo. It's perfect for those vehicles that you can't have a hitch or a roof rack, or where those would detract from the style of your vehicle. It's also going to save the expense of purchasing a roof rack or a trailer hitch. Its sleek design mimics that of a Komodo dragon, and it adds a real stylish accent to your vehicle. It's perfect for sports cars, convertibles, or really any vehicle you want to add some flare to. The four vacuum cups will attach to metal, fiberglass, or glass, and they have a 210-pound pull strength each.


SeaSucker Komodo Trunk Bike Rack Review - 2010 Audi Q5

Today on our 2010 Audi Q5 we're going to be doing a test fit of the Seasucker Komodo bike rack. That's part number 298-BK1910-BK. This is for the black color, but it's also available in aqua blue, gold, and silver. This suction-mounted bike rack can adhere to your Audi's roof or rear hatch. Four vacuum cups offer 210 pounds of pull strength each. As you can see with it in in place, it's not going anywhere. I'm actually shaking the whole Audi.



SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack, part number: 298-BH1302. The SeaSucker Hornet allows you to carry one bike on the rear of your hatchback, minivan or SUV using the two vacuum cups. Suction holds them on place on your rear window without scratching the glass. The ratcheting straps hold your handlebars to the suction cups and your bike seat simply rests against your rear hatch. The whole system can carry one bike up to 35 pounds. It also includes one cam-buckle safety strap for additional stability and security. It includes a storage case for when they are not in use.



Yakima HalfBack Trunk Mount 3 Bike Rack Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima halfback trunk mounted 3 bike rack. Part number Y02635. Got three bikes and somewhere to be The Yakima halfback trunk mounted bike rack is the perfect solution for you. It simply attaches to your trunk or rear hatch and is held in place by four straps. The straps feature rubber-coated hooks and our braces feature foam pads, so we don't have to worry about it damaging the finish on our vehicle. It's securing our bike in three locations. We have our top two cradles for our top tube.


Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Today on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek we're going to be test fitting the Yakima HangOut 2 bike rack for trunks, part number Y02637. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's take a closer look and show off some of the features. The cradles themselves are a adjustable to accommodate loading and unloading, and it will grip your bike at three points. We'll have two straps up at the top here and one off to the side, which is going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth and making bike to bike contact. We also have this wheel strap up at the front which serves as a stabilization strap for a one-bike application. For two bikes, you have a much longer strap that would go around both bikes' frames, as well as the frame of the bike rack itself, to keep everything secure there. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside. With the bike rack in this position I'm going to go ahead and give you a couple quick measurements.


Yakima HalfBack Trunk Mount 2 Bike Rack Test Course

Here it is on our test course. We'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action, which simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Next, we're at the alternating speed bumps, which we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Finally, we have the full speed bumps where we'll see the up and down action, which is just like driving out of a parking lot, garage, or driveway..

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

The Yakima SpareRide 2 Bike Carrier, # Y02599, also might work if you take two measurements to be sure.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback
  • There are many different styles of bike racks that you can use on your 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback, but due to the spoiler that comes on the rear hatch of your vehicle, I would recommend using a roof or hitch mounted bike rack over a trunk mounted bike rack. The rear spoiler on your vehicle was not designed to support any type of weight and it will be forced to support the weight of a bike rack and bikes when you use a trunk mounted bike rack. Instead, I would recommend looking into...

  • Differences Between the Thule Archway, Gateway and Passage

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...

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,...

  • Will the Saris Bones Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a Honda CR-V

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...

  • 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....

  • Can the Trunk be Opened with the Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Installed
  • Trunk mount bike racks should be removed when not in use. If you leave them on all the time they can leave marks on the vehicle in some cases. You will not want to open the trunk with the bike rack installed. Doing so could wedge the hooks against the body of the vehicle or trunk lid and damage them. The hinges or struts for the trunk are not designed for added weight and also because of the extra weight the trunk could fall on you if the rack was still attached. The Thule Raceway...

  • 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...
