Padded, Ratcheting Hooks

Malone Runway 4-bike Carrier

The Runway has 2 masts with ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes securely by the top tube. And because they move independently, you can carry bikes of different shapes and sizes. The hooks have soft padding that won't scratch or scuff your bike's paint.

Sliding Wheel Hoops

Malone Runway 4-bike Carrier

The rack has wheel hoops that provide a stable base for mounting your bikes. Each hoop has a hand knob that lets you easily slide it along the tray to accommodate your bike's wheelbase.

Tilting and Folding

Malone Runway 4-bike CarrierMalone Runway 4-bike Carrier

The rack tilts with bikes loaded for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. To tilt the rack, remove the pin at the base of the rack, slide the platform out away from the vehicle, and use both hands to lower it. To raise the rack, lift it up and slide the platform back toward your vehicle so it catches inside the base, and re-insert the pin. Pull the pin at the base of the mast to fold the mast down so you can fold the rack up against your vehicle.

Security for Your Bikes

Malone Runway locking hooks

Locks on each frame clamp knob secure your bikes to the rack. The knobs spin freely when locked so a would-be thief can't operate them to remove your bikes from the clamps. An anti-rattle lock (sold separately) to secure the bike carrier to your vehicle

This 4-bike platform rack is perfect for riders who occasionally take family or friends out to the trail. You can tilt it with your bikes loaded for trunk access and fold it up for storage. Includes locks for bikes.


This is the first I have tried in the Platform style bike racks. I am very pleased with this and find it very sturdy and fits my bike well. the assembly was very easy and happened quick. The hanger type did not position the bikes well and they rubbed on each other. The platform style handles the bikes very nicely.

Grant L.


Still going strong! This has been a solid rack that has taken care of my bikes. A 4 bike rack is pretty big and the foldup option is super handy.

  • Bike Adapter Bar For Malone Runway Bike Rack For Step-Thru Bikes
    Since the hooks don't go low enough to attach to the frame on your step-thru bikes with the Malone Runway Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # MAL82VR, what you'll need is a bike adapter bar. What this does is attach between the seat post and handlebar stem to give the frame hooks an attachment point, and you can use the following from Swagman: - Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005

  • Malone Runway HM4 VS Swagman XTC4
    First off, the Swagman XTC4 # S64665 is motorhome approved so it is a bit more sturdy than the Runway HM4 # MAL82VR. The Swagman also has the bike cradles inclined up to gain more ground clearance as the Runway does not. All in all I would recommend the XTC4 to you as you're used to the Swagman Products and it seems that it fits your needs more than the Runway HM4.

  • Does Malone Runway HM4 Bike Rack Tilt Down Freely
    The Malone Runway HM4 Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # MAL82VR does not have a stopping or lock point; when you pull the spring pin it will in fact tilt down, and the pin will need to be re-inserted at the correct position when tilting it back up. So really the tilting feature would be best suited for two people when using the Malone Runway # MAL82VR. This is a really nice option for a 4-bike rack though, and even comes with locking knobs on the arms to help protect your bikes. The HM4 comes with...

  • Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack For Two 70 lb E-Bikes With Fat Tires
    There is one option for a hitch-mounted bike rack that will work for your electric bikes that are a total of 140 lbs (or about 70 lbs per bike) and have fat tires, which is a rack from Hollywood Racks: - Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # HLY84FR This rack has an 80 lb per-bike capacity, so it will support your bikes totaling 140 lbs, and is compatible with tires up to 5 inches wide. The Sport Rider SE # HLY84FR also has a number of conveniences that other...

  • Can you Carry Two Bikes and Four Bikes on a Malone Runway HM4 Bike Rack for 4 Bikes?
    Yes, the Malone Runway HM4 Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # MAL82VR will accommodate any load from 1-4 bikes at a time with a maximum weight capacity of 33 pounds per bike. If you are looking for a rack that allows you to remove the two bike slots that you aren't using when you are only using two bikes, the Swagman Quad 2+2 Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # S64FR has that built-in feature. The Swagman Quad has a maximum per-bike capacity of 45 pounds.

  • Is the Malone Runway Bike Rack for 4 Bikes a Good Rack to Hold Two Adult Bikes and Two Kids Bikes?
    The Malone Runway Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # MAL82VR will fit your two adult bikes and your two kids bikes with 20 inch and 24 inch wheels. This is a great rack for cross country road trips because the padded hooks on sliding arms hold bikes securely by the frame. If you have an unconventional frame or really small children's bikes, you will have to purchase a Malone Bike Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # MAL82VR. Also, the 9 inches from the center of the hitch...

  • Which 4-Bike Carrier Has The Ability To Tilt For Trunk Access Without Unloading The Bikes?
    I have a perfect solution for you! But unfortunately the Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack # C18064 along with any other hanging bike rack does not have the ability to tilt while bikes are loaded. For this feature, you will need to go with a platform bike rack. I think a great option for you would be the Malone Runway Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches # MAL82VR. This is very affordable considering it is a platform rack that has the ability to tilt for trunk access while 4 bikes are still loaded...

  • 4 Bike Rack That Can Tilt To Allow Full Trunk Access On 2015 GMC Yukon
    I have a solution for you, but the Hollywood Racks Destination Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # HR4000 unfortunately does not have the ability to tilt back. I would look into the Malone Runway Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # MAL82VR. This is definitely the most affordable option that will allow you to tilt the bike rack back while 4 bikes are loaded. We have not tested this on a 2015 GMC Yukon so I cannot say for sure if it will give you full access to the cargo area, but it...

  • Trailer Hitch and 4-Bike Carrier for a 2011 Kia Sorento
    I will be happy to help you out. First, for a trailer hitch, since you want to carry 3 to 4 bikes I recommend going with the sturdier Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver because of the strength and versatility. Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75684 fits that description perfectly. Drilling is not required for installation. I have linked a video showing installation for you. For a bike rack the Hitching Post Pro, # TH934XTR, is a great option and I recommend it for someone who wants...

  • Thule Hitching Post Pro Or Curt Premium 4 Bike Tilting?
    If you're wanting to be able to tilt the rack so you can access the back hatch and keep your bikes loaded, both the Curt Premium # C18064 and the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR do not allow tilting with the bikes installed. So I don't recommend either of these racks for you. You will need to get a platform style rack If you want hatch access with the bikes installed. The Malone Runway # MAL82VR would work for all of your bikes and can tilt with all of them installed. You may need...

  • What are the Pros/Cons of the Sport Rider SE 4 # HR1400Z and the Malone Runway 4 # MAL82VR?
    When it comes to hitch-mounted carriers by Hollywood Racks and Malone that can carry adult bikes, kids bikes, and mountain bikes, one pro of the Hollywood Racks models is the weight capacity. If you are looking at a rack like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches # HR1400Z, the per-bike weight capacity is 50 pounds. This is great for heavier adult bikes (not electric bikes) and full-suspension mountain bikes. Another great advantage is that the Sport Rider...

  • Replacement LoopLocks Cable Locks For Malone 4 Bike Racks
    For your Malone 4-Bike carrier, like the Malone Runway Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches # MAL82VR, there actually aren't replacement keys offered. Instead, to receive a set of keys for your bike rack, you'll have to replace the entire lock assembly with the: - Malone LoopLocks Cable Lock # MPG2171, which has 1-1/4" diameter tubing, or -Malone LoopLocks Cable Lock # MPG2168 that has 1" diameter tubing.

  • Recommended Bike Rack for an EcoHitch on a 2017 BMW i3
    With the EcoHitch # 306-X7277 having a 2 inch receiver opening and 200 pound capacity, you have quite a few options available. Though it will depend on how many bikes you will be carrying and what style they will be, here are a few of the ones I recommend. For a hanging style rack, I suggest the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. The quote from their add says "If the Thule name alone doesn't do it for you, how about we throw in anti-sway cradles, a tilting mast, folding arms and universal...

  • USA Made Expandable Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Fat Bikes
    The Malone Runway 4 Bike Rack # MAL82VR can hold tires up to 3.5 inches wide and unfortunately, Malone does not make a fat tire adapter kit for the this rack. This bike rack is also not able to go from its 4-bike configuration to a 2-bike configuration, so I don't believe it's your best option. Now, for a USA made 4-bike rack the best option is the Thule T2 Pro XTR part # TH83JV with 2-bike add on # TH9036XT which can go back and forth between a 2-bike and a 4-bike rack and is designed...

  • Solution For Carrying 5 Bikes On A 2017 Chevrolet Suburban
    This is exactly the right place to ask a question like this. I have a possible solution for you to carry 5 bikes, however, there are not any platform racks for 5 bikes. The easiest and most affordable route is to use a hanging-style bike rack such as Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Tilting Item # C18065. This bike rack has a weight capacity of 45lbs per bike and secures the bikes by the frame. If you plan to haul women's, children's, or full-suspension bikes then you may end up...
