What Trunk Bike Rack do You Recommend for My 2011 Mercury Milan?  


HI, I have a 2011 Mercury Milan and am looking to add a bike rack to it. Apparently, this requires a hitch due to the trunk design. What products are best recommended to have a 2 bike rack installed? Thanks

Never fear! If you are looking for a trunk-mounted bike rack, we do have some confirmed fits for your 2011 Mercury Milan. For a great rack, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier for Vehicles w/ Spoilers # HRF2 (2 bikes) or # HRF2-3 (3 bikes). The Over-the-Top 2 is designed for vehicles with different trunk shapes and/or spoilers that will not accommodate traditional designs of bike racks. To make sure the bikes and the rack is secure to your 2011 Mercury Milan, the fitment involves 4 adjustable cam buckle straps. It is important to note that since the Over-the-Top's lower feet install in contact with the bumper, I recommend confirming the bumper's weight capacity with your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure that loaded bikes will not exceed that limit.

If you are planning to use women's bikes, children's bikes, or step-thru bike frames, I recommend the bike frame adapter bar # HRBA-PRO. The adapter bar will give your bikes a straight, horizontal plane required to mount your bikes to the rack's arms. If you want additional theft-deterrence of the rack and bikes, I recommend the etrailer Cable Lock # e98891 along with the Thule Passive Security Strap # TH533.
