Dual Folding Arms with Anti-Sway Cradles

Malone Runway 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Dual Arms

The Malone Runway HM3 OS has dual arms that provide excellent support for your bikes. They slope up to provide ground clearance for steep driveways and bumpy roads.

Malone Runway 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Hitch Switch Lever

To fold the arms down, remove the tethered bail pin at the top of the mast. This leaves a smaller footprint, so you can keep the rack on your vehicle to park in your garage. And when stored in this configuration, it doesn't take up as much space in your garage.

Malone Runway 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Anti-Sway Cradles

Anti-sway cradles secure each bike twice along the top tube and once along the seat post or downtube. This reduces rocking to help prevent your bikes from banging into each other or into your vehicle. The soft rubber cradles rotate around the arms to accommodate your bikes' frames.

Malone Runway 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Grooves

The cradles have grooves on the surface that prevent your brake and shifter cables from getting pinched.

Malone Runway 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Grooves

For additional protection to prevent your bikes banging into each other during transport, wrap the included anti-sway strap around your bikes.

Easy Tilting for Cargo Area Access

Malone Runway 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Tilting

The rack tilts down without your bikes loaded. This means you won't have to remove the whole rack to access your cargo area for grocery runs and other errands.

Malone Runway 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Lower HitchSwitch Lever

To tilt the rack, remove the tethered bail pin in the upper hole on the base of the mast and lower the mast. When you're ready to go, raise the mast, and reinsert the pin.

Threaded Hitch Pin and Hitch Adapter

Malone Runway hitch pin and adapter

A threaded hitch pin is included to help eliminate rattle in the hitch receiver during transport. To tighten the pin in your hitch, use the included wrench or a 3/4" socket wrench (sold separately). The rack also works with both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches. To use it in a 1-1/4" hitch, simply remove the adapter.

Security for Your Bikes

Malone Runway cable lock

The included cable lock secures your bikes to the rack. It threads around your bikes' frames and inserts into the lock at the end of the left arm. The cable stores inside the arm when not in use. A hitch lock (sold separately) is available to help deter theft of the rack.

Available Adapter Bar

Malone Runway adapter bar

If you have a women's bike, kid's bike, or any other bike without a straight, horizontal top tube, you will need an adapter bar (sold separately) to properly mount your bike. The bar fits between the seat post and handlebar stem post of your bike to create a top tube so your bike hangs level on the rack.

This 3-bike rack is great for riders who take their hobby seriously but don't want to invest much pursuing it. Anti-sway cradles secure your bikes by the top tube and seat post. Tilts with bikes unloaded.


The bolt hole which allowed it to be secured closest to the car became threaded after about 4 months of use and I had to have a mechanic remove it. Fortunately there’s a second hole for attaching the rack to the hitch since the first one is no longer useable. I hope the other hole doesn’t develop the same issue.



So far the second bolt hole is holding strong and working well. I’m not sure it’s gotten as much use this past year and I haven’t used it yet since last summer.


I wanted to carry my bikes on the back of my Prius Prime without hanging anything on the body work. Obviously the only way was with a hitch and carrier. After searching the internet for options, etrailer had some useable options for a fair price. I installed a 1.25" hitch and bought this 3 bike carrier. To get the carrier base to fit into the receiver, I had to file most of the paint off the edges of the tube that goes into the receiver. It fits snuggly and I guess no harm done. The bottom bolt was too short for the ny-loc nut to work securely, but the OEM sent me a longer one on request. Using it on the Prius is perfect as it is a good height to load the bikes and even folded down causes no issues. It tilts back and allows the hatchback door to open ok. Using it on my truck, there are issues. Even on the outer bolt hole, tilting doesn't allow you to open the tailgate to load things. This carrier is supposed to be bolted into the receiver, so it's a pain to remove it. I have purchased a 2" to 1.25" reducer adapter that pushes the carrier out about 5 inches from the discount hardware store for $14. I also got an anti-rattle device that will lock that into the trucks receiver. I haven't used it yet but it should resolve this issue. As for the carrier's bike interface, it locks the bikes in pretty well. I haven't used a strap on the bikes on either vehicle as they seem to be very secure. The rubber bands feel for lack of a better word, but work ok now, we'll see how long they last. To be honest I have no idea what they were thinking when they designed the locking thing!? You can't secure anything but the end bikes frame and a small set of bolt cutters would solve that. It will keep a kid from snatch and run, but it won't reach the wheels, so they're gone if you have quick release skewers.
Still, overall it's a decent carrier, the finish seems to be tough, it does hold the bikes well so they probably won't fall off (in bad places, stay with the car or bring them indoors, LOL), but be careful the first time you tilt it and try to open the back of you vehicle.
I would recommend this carrier.


etrailer is a great company to do business with.
I rated this Malone bike rack a four out of five stars only because i really don’t think you could get three adult size bikes on it. I was afraid of damage so i put two on the rack and one in the camper.
Other then that its a quality product. Very secure.


Some nice features, but a mediocre product overall. Connects to your receiver with a screw-in bolt, which, at best, is hard to install. And the bolt only connects to one side of the receiver. Also, elastic bands are used as tie down straps and these bands will eventually break or become over-stretched. Also, the lock feature is useless as the key and lock are shoddily made. On the plus side, the steel core is very sturdy and the unit is a lot less expensive than the competition.


Love this rack-simple, light weight, well made and sturdy. Has held up very well.



Great after one year.


Talk about a VERY GOOD AND SECURE bike rack. I love the folding features on it. You can fold it down in one direction to easily put bikes up, and fold down another part so the rack isn't sticking out. It locks in the hitch easily and secure. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to others



Absolutely love this rack. Ive used it a few times this year. Its very easy to install and remove, very sturdy and REALLY holds the bikes down if you put the straps on properly. I would still highly recommend this to anyone!


Works great and can take it on and off the car in seconds.


Overall a very nice bike rack. It sits solidly in our hitch and has almost no movement. I was worried with the two pivot points that it would bounce around but everything was made with tight tolerances so no bouncing at all! It is a bit fiddly to put the bikes on (especially the one in back) with the big pads and straps but it is getting easier as we learn the tricks). Overall we are very happy with the rack but have only used it for a couple of weeks.


Order place on 8/2 , the bike rack was back ordered to be received in September, but once I communicated that I could not wait that long. I was informed that they had received item and proceeded to ship it. BTW customer service is great. I received items on 8/12. Installed 8/13. The hitch and bike rack was shipped in one box, box arrived with damage. Hitch bounced around during transport No major damage to hitch or rack. Corners of hitch scratched but it does not affect the integrity of the hitch. Bike rack box and rack itself ok Hardware bolts and washers was taped to the hitch receiver. installed within 35 minutes all together. Passenger side a bit tricky to install bolt due to space
gap constraint. Bike rack is easy to put together.


I have to compliment on the speed and customer service. My malone 3 came in the mail seemingly at light speed. However there were 2 broken brackets that must have occurred during shipping. Not etrailer or malones fault. I called and they were on it quickly. New part came in a day! Top notch customer service!! They went out of there way to get me that part. Both companies were stellar. I had other experiences waiting for parts for other gear this happened to and waited weeks. Can u tell I'm happy?! Oh as far the the bike rack it's great solid well made. I would suggest getting the locking bolt for security and it help tighten the fit. Will use again in the future for my trailer needs.


easy to install, fairly light weight. It holds the bikes fairly securely.


Good height if you have a small car and plan to carry large bikes. Good spacing between the cradles of larges bikes as well. However, I would prefer velcro or other type of strap as these need to be overstretched or left a bit loose with my mountain bikes. Also the integrated bike lock is pretty much useless. It only locks the last bike so worthless when carrying only one or two bikes. And if you want to protect your tires from theft, you need a separate lock anyway. Overall good enough rack and good price for occasional use.


Everything works as it should. Have had all 3 of the families bikes on this rack no problems. Very sturdy with the Malone lock and sway control .


Love the new rack was pretty easy to install and looks awesome.


Fast shipping, delivery on time. Installation manual and the [online] video were a little cumbersome. Though, the installation was not complicated.


The straps have all broken and there is no replacements available. I almost lost my bike a couple of times. Waste of money and did not last. Just sitting around because I cannot use it and don't know what else to do with it.


Omg you guys are awesome and thank you for the great customer service and the quick shipment of one of my Christmas gifts. Happy Holidays and thank you again.


Great quality, I highly recommend this bike rack.


Great quality does not even wiggle after installed.



Works great, no issues


It works great and makes loading and unloading the bike much easier!


Excellent heavy duty product! Thank you for the great customer service!


Very solid and sturdy. Easy to install. Looking forward to using on our next biking vacation!


Sturdy and nice looking.


Great thanks

  • What Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Can I Use with a 22 Inch Clearance for a Trailer Jack Handle?
    I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, the length of the Thule Gateway Pro 3 from the lower support to the end of the bike rack is about 23-1/2 inches. This will most likely interfere with the RV trailer handle (especially factoring in overhang for rear bike's pedals). In addition, there are no 3-bike trunk racks that will be less than the 22 inches you need for the clearance of the trailer handle for the jack. With that being said, I confirmed with my contact at Thule that the Thule...

  • Will Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2009 BMW X3
    I checked with Hollywood Racks, Yakima, and Thule and none of them have a trunk mount bike rack that will work with your 2009 BMW X3 but there are other ways to carry bikes on the vehicle including a trailer hitch mount and roof rack. Using a hitch mount is the way I recommend because it will cost less, it is easier to load and unload bikes, and a hitch affords you other accessory options such as a cargo carrier as well as the ability to tow a trailer should the need arise.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack for 2006 Chrysler Town and Country
    All of the trunk mounted 3 bike racks for your 2006 Chrysler Town and Country will have an upper arm with foam on the window. To get away from that, I recommend adding a trailer hitch receiver and using a hitch mounted bike rack. For your vehicle, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - 2" # 13389 if you have stow and go or the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver 2" # 75119 if you do not have stow and go. Then I recommend the Malone Runway 3 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches...

  • Bike Rack Options For Downhill Mountain Bike With Slanted Frame
    I can see how the frame of your sons bike has a slanted cross tube which may make it difficult to properly hang it on a hanging bike rack because there is not a horizontal surface to hang the bike from. That would be the same issue you will have with the Malone RunWay part # MPG2130 because it's a hanging bike rack. One way to possibly fix this is to use a Rhino-Rack Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes part # RRRBCA021 which attaches at the handle bar stem and...

  • Will Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack for 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Tilt Away with Bikes Loaded
    If you're looking for a 3-bike rack, the Malone Hanger # MPG2130 is a good choice for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. The trailer hitches made for the 2019 Cherokee, like the Draw-Tite # 75998 or Curt # C13395 sit pretty flush with the rear bumper, so clearing your bumper will not be an issue with the Hanger installed. The same is true for the OEM trailer hitch, so no issues there. The RunWay does allow you to use the tilt feature with or without the bikes loaded, as shown on page 14...

  • Tilting Bike Rack Recommendation for Subaru Outback
    Hey Gregor, yeah we have great tilting bike racks that would fit your Subaru Outback from the super nice Thule Epos bike rack part # TH49XE which is very easy to use and loaded with features to the Economical Malone Runway part # MPG2130. Or the tried and true middle of the road value Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR. I also attached a link to a page that has all the tilting racks we offer.

  • Recommended 3 Bike Rack That Can Be Used on Both 1-1/4 and 2 Inch Hitch Receivers
    I have a solution for you, but the Hollywood Racks Road Runner # HR320 is only designed to fit on 2" receivers. Since you have both 1-1/4" and 2" receivers I recommend using the Malone Runway # MPG2130 since it offers the same features and also comes with a locking hitch pin and locks for the bikes. I've linked a brief video of our road test of the Malone rack for you to have a look at as well.

  • What 3-Bike Rack Do You Recommend for a 1-1/4 Class I Hitch on a 2013 Toyota Prius?
    For a great economical choice for mounting 3 bikes on your 2013 Toyota Prius, I recommend the Malone Runway Bike Rack for 3 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # MPG2130. The Runway has a per-bike maximum weight capacity of 33 pounds. The carrier itself only weights 21 pounds. For a premium option constructed of durable, rust-proof aluminum, I recommend Thule Helium Pro 3 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Aluminum # TH9043PRO. The Helium Pro 3 has a bit more per-bike weight...

  • Difference Between Malone Bike Rack part Numbers MPG2130 and MPG2165
    The two part numbers are totally different products so I wonder if maybe you meant to type something different. The Malone Runway 3 part # MPG2130 is a hanging 3-bike rack and the part # MPG2165 is a bike frame adapter bar that you would use on a bike rack like this so that you could carry an alternative framed bike without a top tube like a womens or kids bike. I attached review videos for both of these racks for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended 3-Bike Carrier And Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid
    If you are wanting to go the hitch-mounted route, then yes the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver 2" # e98848 and Thule Hitching Post Pro 4 Bike Rack # TH934XTR will work well. If you want a more budget-friendly option, I would look into the Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack # MPG2130 which holds 3 bikes. The Thule has a weight capacity of 35lbs per bike while the Malone has a similar weight capacity of 33lbs per bike. I recommend going the hitch-mounted route over the trunk-mounted route for a few...

  • Recommended Hanging Bike Rack For Carrying 3 Bikes Behind a 2010 Toyota RAV4
    With the swinging rear door on your 2010 Toyota RAV4 I recommend using the Yakima FullSwing Bike Rack # Y02465. This bike rack swings 90 degrees to the side opening similarly to how your rear door opens. Because of this it gives you the ability to open your rear door since the Malone Runway Bike Rack # MPG2130 does not fully tilt down allowing full access to a swinging door like yours. This style is best used with a rear hatch which hinges at the roof line. The Yakima also sits further...

    Very nice. I also have a 2013 Sienna XLE and it is a great van that has served us well. I have a few options I can recommend here, and it will really depend on what kind of bikes you have. If you have "standard" bikes like road bikes or mountain bikes, I recommend the Malone Runway # MPG2130. This will hold 3 bikes weighing up to 33 lbs apiece. It does tilt away and will allow you to open the hatch without having to remove the bike rack. This is a solid hanging style rack and includes...

The second center hitch pin to upright bar is 9-3/8" The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98846 has a 4-1/2" hitch pin center hole to bumper measurement on your Rogue.

  • Is the Malone RunWay 3 Compatible With A Class I Hitch?
    Correct! The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11416 is a class I hitch receiver and will not work with the Malone RunWay 3 # MPG2130. If you have a Class I Hitch, I recommend getting the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. It can carry one more bike than the RunWay 3 but can be used with a Class I hitch, but I recommend never putting more than two bikes on the rack because class I hitches are not rated for more than 2 bikes.
