Recommended Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2018 BMW X1


Can you recommend a bike rack for a BMW X1 Trunk. Mount


Expert Reply:

For your 2018 BMW X1, I recommend using the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack part # HRF2 for two bikes or part # HRF2-3 for three bikes. The reason that I recommend you use this bike rack is because it's design allows for the least amount of contact with the vehicle. If you take a look at the attached photo you will see how the dual upper arms can be adjusted to avoid all contact with the rear spoiler on your X1.

There are other options available like the Thule OutWay 2-Bike Rack part # TH45JV which will fit your X1 but over time the downward pressure on the rear spoiler can cause issues which is why I like the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack so much.

Please note that if any of your bikes have an alternative frame you may also want to look into the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # HRBA-PRO as this will keep them level which then in turn reduces the potential for contact with the ground.
