Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.

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.




by:

Great quality does not even wiggle after installed.

Works great, no issues

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.




by:

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


Comments
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!

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




by:

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.




by:

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




by:

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.




by:

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




by:

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




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

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 .

Great thanks

  • Does Malone 3 Bike Rack Come with Hitch and Bike Lock
    The Malone Bike Rack part # MPG2130 comes with a cable lock to secure the bikes to the rack but for a hitch lock you'd want the part # MPG2174 to go with with it.

  • 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...

  • 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 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.

  • Hitch Pin Hole Centers For Malone Runway 3 Bike Rack Hitch Carrier For a 2014 Nissan Rogue
    The Malone Runway Bike Rack # MPG2130 has 2 hitch pin locations to allow you to determine which will best fit your 2014 Nissan Rogue. From the first center hitch pin to upright bar is 7-3/8". 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. So you will have either a 2-7/8" or 4-7/8" clearance from the bumper to the upright bar on the Malone rack. I recommend securing...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And 3-Bike Bike Rack For A 2020 Ford Fusion
    For your 2020 Ford Fusion I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # C12091. This hitch has a maximum gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500lbs and maximum tongue weight of 350lbs and is not rated for use with weight distribution hitches. This hitch is a simple bolt-on installation with no welding required but it does require removal of your underbody panel(s) installation. It fits well on Hybrid models but doesn't fit 2020 Energi models. For the bike...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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. If you are deciding on a hitch for your 2019 Honda HR-V, Class...

  • 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. For a trailer...

  • 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...

  • 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...
