Haven't used bike rack for years and needed a new adapter piece since my original piece was cracked. All pieces worked perfectly!!! I can't wait to start riding. 654495

I have an older bike rack that I had lent out . The receiver hitch bolt was lost . This kit had the perfect replacement parts in it . It’s back on the road again. Happy with purchase. 636820

Didn't use my hitch mounted bike rack in 10 years (old X-5 didn't have a hitch). My new X-3 could be ordered with a trailer hitch and I went for it. Missing was the pin to attach bike rack to the hitch. Package of parts received but all I needed was the pin for the hitch sleeve. But upon assembly, the bike rack had a lot of sway. All of a sudden, many of the additional parts sent were substituted for the original hardware resulting in a rejuvenated hitch mounted bike rack that is as solid as can be. You don't need it until you need it! 608526

Because I live in Hawaii, shipping was ridiculous but I'm thrilled they even offer the parts. (Its a discontinued bike rack). Thanks to etrailer, I'm able to use my bike rack now. I probably could have rigged something up to work, but happy I have the extra parts if needed. Package arrived just as promised. 494696

I had the same part when I purchased my bike carrier but the parts came up missing. The new parts are what I expected and they work fine for my application carrying bikes.

I had aquired a used Rhode Gear rack, and needed a adapter for my 2" hitch reciever and the main mounting bolt. Other adapters are steel and have way too much play leaving the bike rack very wobbly. This parts kit was perfect. Now everything is securely mounted and ready to roll. 45233

  • Rhode Gear Hitch Bolt Availability
  • I have a potential solution for you, but it will require you Rhode Gear racks to be either part number 8015220 or 8015221. If one of those racks are what you have then you would need the # RG890247. This comes with several other components that you wouldn't necessarily need. But it's the only way to get a replacement threaded hitch pin for the now discontinued bike racks.

  • Hole Diameter of Thule Replacement Straps for Cradles TH534
  • Bike rack parts such as rubber straps like Thule part # TH534 can sometimes be used interchangeably between different brands of bike racks. The Thule straps have holes that measure 7/16-inch. On their top side those holes have a rounded perimeter, to give something like a slight funnel shape, which gives that side of the strap a hole diameter closer to 1/2-inch. Rhode Gear was bought out by Yakima some years back and so there is limited availability of replacement parts for their racks....

  • Replacement Parts for Chariot Child Bike Trailer
  • The Rhode Gear brand disappeared from the landscape some years back after it was acquired by Yakima Racks. The Chariot brand name is associated with Thule, who now markets active-lifestyle products under that name which include things like strollers and bike trailers like their Cadence model # TH10101802 and other products shown on the linked page. I also linked pages that display replacement parts. If you do not see the part you need you can send us photos of the trailer and its...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Replace an Older Rhode Gear Bike Rack
  • It sounds like you have a Rhode Gear Bike rack that is designed to install where a hitch ball installs. Rhode Gear is no longer in business so we do not have the correct parts (if they were available) to convert your bike rack to a hitch mounted style rack. The best recommendation I can give you would be to use this opportunity to upgrade to a newer bike rack compatible with 2 inch hitches. The most popular bike rack we carry is the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This is a...

  • Recommended Hitch Bike Lock for Rhode Gear Bike Rack
  • There is not a locking hitch pin for the Rhode Gear Bike Racks. You have a couple of options to secure your bike rack. The first is to use a cable lock like # CAB-10 running it through the chain loops on your trailer hitch receiver to secure your bikes and rack in place. The other option would require drilling out the threaded hole on your rack to replace it with a different anti-rattle hitch lock. If you go that route, I recommend the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock...

  • Solution for Needing Replacement Parts for Rhode Gear Bike Rack
  • Your picture didn't make it through, but Rhode Gear has been discontinued for such a long time that we don't have any replacement parts for their racks. Sounds like you need a shank for the rack which I know we won't be able to get. Your best option is to go with a new bike rack like the Lets Go Aero BikeWing part # B01311 which our customers really like and is priced great. It's also really easy to use and works with kids bikes.
