I just bought a CX-30 Premium yesterday and love it. Curious if anyone has any recommendations for bike racks? I'm most likely going to get a hitch installed at a u-haul and run a hitch rack, but wanted to see if anyone had any direct experience.

Thanks!

I have a swagman on mine which is a cheaper aternative to the Thule and compatible with my fatbike in the winter. A really great and sturdy rack overall for the price, I am an occasional biker. I paid 175$ for mine used. The only downside is the 1" offset with the bumper, you have to watch out during installation but that's it. Hope this help!

Alternate suggestion - I avoided that problem by purchasing a folding e-bike so that it goes inside the hatch with no problem.😄

I have a Yakima 2 e-bike rack. Really good and folds up in a minute and stores in the boot.

@butterboy - there are other threads about towing hitches on the CX-30 and the issues in Canada.

Anyone have experience with a bike rack mounted and the full safety spec? I’m wondering how it is going to interfere with Blindspot, lane departure, etc. I know the backup sensors will panic but more concerned with driving forwards. Installing the Curt hitch tomorrow and hooking a Thule T2 Pro XTR to it. Thanks!

It isn't cheap, but the 1UpUSA rack is universally beloved. I only transport one bike, so the cost wasn't as high. It fits almost all bikes, has a terrific locking system available, tilts so you can open a hatch or trunk lid, is relatively light in weight, and comes in aluminum or black anodized. Do NOT get the Saris Freedom rack as the straps don't hold. I ended up dragging my bike on its handlebars on the freeway when the top strap gave out and the wheel straps held the bike on the rack. I had to replace the handlebars, shifters, and brake levers. To their credit, Saris paid for the parts.

My CX-30 GT slams on the brakes in reverse with bikes mounted to the hitch.... SBS-R is the culprit but must be disabled by going into the menu each time the vehicle is started.
I hope Mazda has some sort of software update for when the hitch is added to disable this easily otherwise that is an absolute pain.

Definitely a pain for cyclists. I took my CX-30 to have a Garmin dash cam installed, and brought my bike to ride during the installation. I warned the installer about backing up, but he still got caught by it. A shortcut to temporarily disable the SBS-R would be great.

Absolutely! You will never find someone who owns a 1Up and doesn't think it's great. I recommend the keyed-alike lock set to go with it, two for the wheels and one to lock the rack to the hitch.
