Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Racks - RG8890084

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (52 Customer Reviews)


- RG8890084
by:

Have an old Rhode Gear hitch-mounted bike carrier with worn out bike cradles. The rubber was just too old and brittle. I thought I would have to buy a new rack but other than the cradles, its fine. Too many things in landfills anyhow-not to mention saving some serious change. Loved the website-very informative, easy to navigate. The parts arrived quickly, and were very reasonably priced. Will definitely return in future. 424357

As described and better. Fits well and sturdy. Fits on my Rhode Gear bike rack. Customer service by Katie was even better. 267640

These fixtures are awesome. They replace some worn out plastic straps that had split apart. These new ones are very adaptable to whatever type or size of bike that I am carrying. The Velcro straps hold the bike frame in a secure position. Worth every dollar paid. Highly recommend. 679545

This replacement cradle is not a match for the one I had that broke, but it works great and gives an additional option of how to attach the bike to the rack. I like it. 286192

Identical to the original Rhode Gear parts. I was adding a short extention to my rack to add one more bike and these worked great. 262257

Replacement bike rack cradle is actually better than the original as the straps are far stronger. Perfect fit on my Rhode Gear rack. 389629

by:

Adding this simple (and inexpensive) change to my Rhode Gear bike carrier was a great way to continue using it without buying an entirely new one. Over the years the foam protectors on the extension bars wore off and I was using pool noodles to protect the bikes. In just a matter of minutes I had the new cradles on and have used them numerous times already. Works good and is a simpler, quicker way to attach the bikes. 401885

One year later and the cradles continue to be a great addition to my bike rack after numerous trips!

These cradles completely re-vamped my old Rhodes Gear shuttle rack, and were a great upgrade to the original straps. The cradles were easy to install, and provide a solid, snug fit around the frame. With two bikes, there was no lateral rocking on the rack. Also, the service from George at etrailer was great, with really fast shipping! I would definitely recommend this product and eTrailer to others. 570697

Tricky to get on my old beat up bike rack with 1inch diameter bars, but with a little elbow grease and windex for lubricant it went on and works great. Holds the bike stable and is much easier to use than bungy straps for sure. 854760

  • Length and Width of Strap for Replacement Rhode Gear Cradle # RG8890084
    I went out to our warehouse to measure the strap for the Replacement Rhode Gear Cradle # RG8890084. I measured an overall length of 11-3/4 inches including the metal loop, or 11-1/4 inches for just the strap without the loop, and a width of 1 inch. The strap by itself is not available separately from the cradle assembly.

  • Replacement Frame Cradles for a Discontinued Rhode Gear Bike Rack with 1-1/4 in Diameter Arms
    I went and pulled a Replacement Cradle # RG8890084 from our warehouse to measure the diameter of the hole and determined that it would only fit on a 1 inch diameter arm. So if your arms are 1-1/4 inches in diameter you would need something different. The Hollywood Racks Replacement Cradles # HR755AS are designed to fit Hollywood Rack bike racks with 1-1/4 inch diameter rack arms, but since you have 1-1/4 inch arms they should work well for you too.

  • Replacement Cradle for a Prorack 2 Bike Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carrier
    For the Prorack bike rack you can use replacement cradle, # RG8890084. The strap is included. The hole through the cradle is 1 inch in diameter it you want to double check the arm diameter on your rack first.

  • What is Inside Diameter of Rhode Gear Frame Cradle # RG8890084
    The inside diameter of the Rhode Gear Wheel Cradle part # RG8890084 that you referenced is 1 inch. If your Bell bike rack has 1 inch arms on it these would fit.

  • Replacement Rubber Straps for Older Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Bike Rack
    Original replacement parts for Rhode Gear racks are rare these days since the brand was acquired by Yakima and then dissolved some years back. We do still have some OEM parts like their Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Racks # RG8890084 and their Replacement Stabilizing Strap # Y8890253 but for rubber straps the best option, which is not an exact replacement, is Yakima's # 8890221. We offer the straps in a set of 2, so you'll want to order a quantity of two to get the four...

  • Replacement Rubber Straps for Rhode Gear Hitch Shuttle
    I have a recommendation for you but the original replacement rubber straps are hard to come by. The brand was acquired by Prorack and dissolved a while back. However, we do have OEM replacement cradles for Rhode Gear Shuttle Racks # RG8890084. This comes with the rubber cradle and fabric hold down straps. If you are looking for a rubber strap, the best option, which is not an exact replacement, is the Yakima Rubber Strap # 8890221. We offer these straps in a set of three.

  • Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Bike Rack
    There were actually only 2 different models for the Rhode Gear bike racks from Yakima. The Rhode Gear Highway is a 4 bike hitch mounted bike rack and the replacement cradle is part # RG8890083. The Rhode Gear Super Shuttle is a 3 bike trunk mounted bike rack for which the replacement cradle is part # RG8890084. I have attached pictures of both bike racks. The Highway is the tall one and the Super Shuttle is the shorter one with the straps attached to it.

  • Replacement Frame Cradles to Fit Rhode Gear Shuttle Bike Rack
    Since your Rhode Gear Shuttle bike rack has 1 inch diameter rack arms the Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Racks # RG8890084 that you referenced will fit it. The Shuttles all were made to fit at least 2 bikes so yours allowing you to tightly fit two bikes is normal. They like to make the arms as short as possible so that the bikes aren't hanging too far off the vehicle which would cause stress from added leverage. These are all sold individually so you'd need a quantity...

  • Replacement Cradle and Straps for Rhode Gear 2 Bike Trunk Mount Bike Rack
    The Rhode Gear 2 bike trunk mount bike rack by Yakima was called the Super Shuttle. Yakima has dropped the Rhode Gear name and product line some time ago, but we still offer the Replacement Cradle, part # RG8890084, for the Super Shuttle bike racks. If you need any other replacement parts, we also carry the Replacement Side Lower Strap, # RG8890248, and the Replacement Stabilizing Strap, # Y8890253.

  • Recommended Replacement Parts for Rhode Gear Bike Carrier
    For your Rhode Gear Bike Carrier, I would recommend the Replacement Cradle # RG8890084 you referenced. It provides a longer-lasting, more snug fit for the bikes you plan to transport as well as protecting the frame of the bike including the brake/gear cables. This particular cradle fits Yakima-era Super Shuttle racks, but we cannot guarantee it will fit the Speedster model. A tip for installing cradles on a bike rack such as this is to spray aerosol hair spray on the bars before sliding...

  • Bike Adapter Bar to Carry a Womans Bike on a Rhode Gear Bike Rack
    Bike adapter bars are not specific to any one bike rack so you could use any of the adapter bars we carry with your Rhode Gear bike rack. The easiest one that I have ever used is the Swagman model, # 64005. I have linked a video showing how it works. I have also included a link to all of the adapter bars we carry.

  • Are 2 Cradles Needed Per Bike on a Bike Carrier
    Yes, on a two-arm bike carrier you will need 2 cradles per bike, one on each arm. The cradles hold the bike frame and protect it from the metallic parts of the bike carrier.

  • Recommended Replacement Cradle For Rhode Gear Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier
    The replacement cradles we carry for Rhode Gear bikes are designed to fit specific models. The # RG8890083 will fit the Rhode Gear Highway bike carriers (8015200, 8015201, 8015202, 8015215, 8015216, 8015218, 8015219, 8015220, 8015221). If your bike carrier is one of the Shuttle bike carriers(RG8015127 and RG8015126), then the # RG8890084 would be the replacement you can use. Since you said your arms measure 1-inch I recommend going with the # RG8890084.

  • Replacement Cradles and Straps Needed for a Rhode Gear Super Shuttle
    Although the Rhode Gear Super Shuttle for 2 Bikes, part RG8015126, has been discontinued we still have some replacement parts available. Replacement Cradle w/ Strap - # RG8890084 Replacement Side Lower Strap - # RG8890248 I believe the part you are talking about is the replacement cradle and strap part # RG8890084. These parts are compatible with the 3 bike version of the Rhode Gear Super Shuttle as well.

  • Replacement Cradles for Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Trunk Mounted Bike Racks
    For the Rhode Gear Super Shuttle you can use the replacement cradle, # RG8890084. These are sold in quantities of one. To replace all of the cradles on a 2 bike rack, you would need 4 cradles. The Super Shuttle has a capacity of 90 pounds. If the beach cruiser has a womens or alternative frame, you will need to use an adapter bar, # Y02531, for greater ground clearance and to carry the bike level. I have included a link to a video showing how the adapter works. Once the bike is mounted...

  • Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Shuttle Bike Rack
    The correct replacement cradles for your Rhode Gear Shuttle Rack is # RG8890084. Rhode Gear was bought out by Yakima, and some of the old Rhode Gear products are still available like this one. The Thule Cradle # 853-7887 that you referenced, may work, but, it may also be too long to install over any curves in the bike rack arm. In the picture, you can see that the Thule cradle, which has a 1 inch diameter and a 2-5/8 inch width. The Rhode Gear cradle has a 1 inch diameter and 2-1/8...

    We do have replacement cradles and straps available that are designed to fit specific model Rhode Gear Bike Carriers.

If you measured a slightly larger diameter of 1-3/32 inches, then the Replacement Cradle # RG8890083 will be used instead.

    I have a solution for you, but I don't have the specific Rhode Gear Ultra Shuttle 3 straps. I do have the Replacement Strap for Cradles on Thule Bike Racks - Qty 1 # 852-3006-001 that are very similar and may be compatible. This strap is 8-3/4 inches and has 1/2 inch diameter holes. Another possible option is to use the Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Racks # RG8890084 that have a 1 inch diameter hole and hook and loop strap.

  • Availability of Rhode Gear Replacement Control Block # RG8890083
    The Rhode Gear Replacement Control Block # RG8890083 that you referenced is no longer available from Yakima (who bought out the brand several years back). No new replacement parts are being produced for those racks. We do still have some remaining stock of the cradle for the Super Shuttle, part # RG8890084. It sounds like you have found a workable solution by substituting a cradle from another manufacturer, Hollywood Racks.
