Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 BMW X3 Without Hitch


Can you recommend a bike rack for a 2017 BMW X3 without a hitch?


Expert Reply:

There are a lot of great options for a bike mount for your 2017 BMW X3 that don't require the use of a trailer hitch. I recommend the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack # SA805BL. This rear-mounted bike rack installs easily onto the rear cargo area of your vehicle and can hold up to two bikes. It features six ratcheting straps to keep the bike rack secure during transport and its padded hooks keep your vehicle's finish free from damage. Check out the video linked below for more details.

Also, note that depending on the frame style of your bikes, you might need an adapter bar to use the bikes with the Saris hanging bike rack. I recommend the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005 which can extend from 24-3/8" - 33-3/4" and prevents scratches or other damage to your bike frame with its vinyl-coated hooks.

If you want some added security while using your bike rack, I recommend the 8' Cable Lock and Lock Loop # SAR52FR. This allows to not only secure your bikes to your bike rack, but also secure your bike rack to your vehicle.
