Swing-Away Design for Full Access to Rear Cargo Area

Swing-away design allows you to access your rear cargo area without removing bikes from the RockyMounts BackStage bike rack

The BackStage has a hinged arm that lets you swing the rack away from the rear of your vehicle with your bikes still loaded. The rack extends 67" away from the hitch, providing maximum access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. This eliminates the need to unload the bikes or remove the rack when you're unloading cargo or letting your dog hop in the back.


 The RockyMounts BackStage bike rack features two pull release knobs that let you fully extend the carrier

To open the hinged arm, simply turn the T-handle until it's loose, pull the spring-loaded pin, and swing the rack away from the rear of the vehicle. The arm will lock into place once it's fully extended so your hands are free to open your hatch and remove cargo.


The RockyMounts BackStage bike rack features two pull release knobs that let you fully extend the carrier

To close the rack, pull the inner spring pin and swing the bike trays back into position. The spring pin will click when the rack is fully closed. Finally, tighten the T-handle to completely secure the rack.


Front-Mounted Lever for Easy Tilting

>Fold the RockyMounts Backstage bike carrier up for additional rear cargo storage

The front-mounted easy release lever allows a single person to both tilt the rack down and fold it up with ease. The rack tilts down 30 degrees with or without bikes loaded for convenient access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. This is great for cramped parking lots where you might not have room to swing the rack out, or when you're in a hurry and don't have time to go through the process of extending and retracting the swing arm.


The T-handle on the RockyMounts BackStage bike carrier allows it to move into the closed position

The lever also lets you fold the rack up for storage when you're not transporting a bike. This is great for parking in places where space is limited such as a parking garage.


Rotating Arms with Ratcheting Hooks

The RockyMounts BackStage bike carrier has ratcheting hooks on pivoting upright arms hold bikes securely by the front wheels with no frame contact

The rack has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel - not the frame. It's perfect for carrying carbon bikes or bikes with a custom paint job. To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the cradle, rotate the arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook.


Pivoting Rear Wheel Cradles with Ratcheting Wheel Straps

The RockyMounts BackStage bike carrier features deep, pivoting wheel cradles that slide up to 3" side-to-side to optimize bike spacing

The rear wheel cradles accommodate a wide variety of bike wheelbases. They pivot front to back, adjusting automatically to each bike's wheelbase - no need for sliding and tightening. Secure the wheels in place with the built-in ratcheting strap. The straps also include extenders for use with fat bikes.


Adjustable Bike Trays

 The front and back bike trays adjust 3" side to side to insure you have enough space when loading your bikes

The front and back bike trays adjust 3" side to side to ensure you have enough space when loading your bikes. Just loosen the 4 bolts where the tray attaches to the bottom of the rack, slide the trays left or right to achieve the desired spacing, and then tighten the bolts. This will prevent your bikes' handlebars from becoming tangled, and it eliminates bike-to-bike contact during transport.


Easy Installation

The RockyMounts BackStage bike carriers hitch lock deters theft

It installs with a threaded, anti-rattle hitch pin. Simply slide the shank into your 2" hitch receiver, insert the threaded hitch pin, and tighten it down with the included tool. This will reduce noise and movement while the rack is installed.


Complete Security

The RockyMounts BackStage bike carrier features a cable lock that deters theft of the actual bike platform and also the hitch itself

Included locks secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. The integrated cable lock threads around your bikes' frames and inserts into the lock that slides along the cable.


Fold the RockyMounts BackStage bike carrier features a novel cable lock system

The hitch lock simply snaps onto the hitch pin and locks in place. The cable and hitch lock are keyed alike, so you'll only need 1 key for both locks.

RockyMounts BackStage Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - RKY10002

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (113 Customer Reviews)

2-Bike rack swings away from the rear of your vehicle with bikes loaded for complete cargo area access. It's perfect for carrying e-bikes, fat bikes, or bikes with a carbon frame or custom paint job.

by:

It is everything I expected. It works perfectly with my 2 e-bikes or traditional bikes. I keep it permanently attached to my camper van and it swings away easily to allow access to the rear doors loaded or empty.




by:

Perfect rack for my Jeep Wrangler. Easy to assemble, easy to use, and it keeps the bikes well clear of the tailgate, even with a 35” spare tire mounted on the back. I use a small extension and an anti-rattle locking hitch pin to help it clear the oversized spare.




by:

Easy to assemble. I worked each function as soon as I completed the assembly. It works flawlessly. I set both the bikes in place with no problems. The rack is easy to load. Love at first site!




by:

So glad I found this rack! We bought it to carry two fat tire electric bikes while still retaining access to the back of our camper. This is the *only* readily available swing-out bike carrier that is both made to accommodate fat tire bikes *and* carry the weight of electric models (up to 60# each). It's very sturdy.

Pros:
-Fat-tire bike ready -- it comes with extender straps and you don't have to buy any other pieces;
-It swings out -- for us, it allows access to our truck camper without removing the bikes or the rack. Great for vans or hatchbacks, too
-Rack also tilts down -- useful at times when you just want to grab something quickly from vehicle interior

Cons
-Assembly instructions were challenging. An assembly video would have made this a snap.
-Most of the parts were sealed in plastic -- except for the 32 pieces that make up the wheel bolts and washers which were, inexplicably, loose in the big box. Sloppy, but at least they were all there!
-The locks *feel* pretty flimsy. I would have preferred the ability to upgrade to something really stout. That said, I'm glad the cable and locks are included - even though they are only a modest deterrent.

Overall, this rack is a total winner and solves the issue of transporting fat tire e-bikes while keeping access to the rear of your vehicle. Fat tire e-bikes are growing in popularity and I'm sure this rack will as well. I'd expect the big makers like Thule and Yakima to take notice.


Comments
A year later, the rack has proven to be a solid choice for carrying heavy fat tire bikes and still access the rear of the vehicle. For vans or campers, this is invaluable. The one thing that would make it perfect would be a way to load bikes without having to lift them so high. This is not a rack failure per se, but having a load ramp for such a rack would make it more feasible for loading bikes that are 60 pounds.

Best bike rack ever! We received our bike rack in record time, earlier than scheduled, and in time for our trip! Love the fact that not only does it hold the bike down on the wheel and not my frame, but it drops down AND swings away for full access to our 2018 Mercedes Sprinter with the barn doors. The doors can swing all the way open and hold in place as designed, so we have a complete view out the back of our van without any obstruction whatsoever. This thing is solid, and it does not budge, we know because we watched it through our camera as we drove down the road. A great investment if you have bikes you want to protect from any damage or theft, as there is also a lock and cable that goes through the bike and also locks the rack to the hitch. Fantastic customer service from etrailer as well!


Comments
Thank you for your follow up. We love the RockyMounts Hitch Bike Rack and have shown it to and recommend it to many friends while traveling. We have it on our 2018 Pleasureway Plateau TS Mercedes 3500 Van base and it’s wonderful since it swings completely to the side with the bikes still on the rack, and both of our back doors swing open for emergency exit if needed. It’s well built, sturdy, easy to use, and as we travel, I look back and the bikes hardly move at all. So we are very, very happy with it. Thank you for having such a terrific product!

I ordered this on May 31st and finally got it on August 11th. We have two eBikes and the load capacity and tilt and swing functions made this rack the best one for our Rav 4 with spare tire on back. RockytMounts had to go into another production cycle before I could get it. But, totally worth the wait. eTrailer honored the original price on my original order and so I saved $xxx on the $xxx full price.

The rack construction seems very strong while I was mounting it to my Rav 4. The mounting locks did seem a bit "cheesy" though, as they are made of plastic. But, of course, one never leaves bikes for very long where "evil" lurks!

I haven't yet put the bikes on the rack but, if there are problems, I will update this review.


Comments
This rack has been so good for the transportation of our two eBikes. Its a heavy load but this rack handles it with ease. We live on the coast, Pacifica, where corrosion is a constant issue. This solid rack has not a bit of rust on it. So this rack is still 5 stars!!

I am a 65 years old and will say I was a little intimidated by the weight the box that the rack came in. It comes in parts to assemble so after opening the box I realize I could get this together. The instructions were clear but photos of the process would have been easier for me to follow. I have a truck with a tall camper shell that has a custom built insert in the bed for camping. I decided on this rack because it looked easy to load the bikes on and it will swing out of the way when I need to access the camper. It took me about 2 hours to assemble. It was not that it was a lot to assemble but the drawings took me time to understand.
Got it put together and tested the movement range of the rack and it clears the back of my 2017 Tundra with 4" to spare. The bikes were easy to load and secure. I took it for a test ride and the bikes did not shift position. The rack flex slightly but overall it rode very smooth. This looks like a winner.
During assembly I thought I have not gotten a couple of small screws that I needed but after opening all the nuts and bolts packages everything was there.
The two photos I took may be helpful. I wish I had not been so focused and taken more while assembling the rack.


Comments
Have been on several long trips on gravel roads with the rack. The rack makes it easy to load and remove the bike. The access to the back of the truck is very convenient. My road clearance is great. I have had one issue of my own creation. I misjudged the distance to my back wall in my carport and rammed the handle into the stucco wall and cracking the blue plastic handle. The wall got the worst of it. Will eventual contact Rocky Mounts and replace it. It took the hit pretty well and still works. Im not in a rush to replace. A sturdy product.

Great, dual, swing away, tilt down, bike rack. Very sturdy…. very well built. It is heavy, but manageable. Note that if your front brakes are attached in front of your front forks above the tire, the bike rack bike holder/stabilizer may put pressure on the brake mechanism. I used real dense foam to keep the bike holder away from the brake mechanism. I love this unit.




by:

Fairly easy install. And now that we have tested it out on a few trips we can honestly say we really like this product. The platform style keeps the bikes from touching/damaging each other. The design is solid and simple to use. Easy to load and unload. The only downside is the lock is a deterant but not bombproof so we will probably add our own locks when needed. Other then that great product, great service from etrailer as always. Highly recomend this rockymount hitch.


Comments
Unfortunately, if the thief is determined enough, they will take your property regardless of the lock used. Providing a deterrent will prevent most thefts, by encouraging the thief to go after an easier target.

Product is very well made and serves it's purpose. I travel/camp with a 2500 RAM ProMaster HR van that I also carry a motorcycle inside. I needed a bike mount that would swing completely out of the way allowing me to download the motorcycle without a bike rack interference. I like the fact it is all one unit instead of two pieces like other manufacturers. Overall the one piece design is less weight in total verses the two piece designs, but those individual pieces weigh less so it is a little heavier to insert. Still, it is the best design for me. The rear van doors have adequate clearance to open over the BackStage Rack when swung to the side.
Rack is stout enough to carry two 60 lb. E bikes if memory serves, which will be a likely option in the future.




by:

Got the rack to fit on our Hymer Aktiv (Ram Promaster 3500) camper van. It arrived on date promised. Directions for assembling seemed a little vague but I was able to get it put together and on to our camper. Worked great and makes getting into the back of the van much easier with the swing out arm. Due to our spare tire rack on back and low level of the hitch on the back of our van, I am using a hitch extended to add 4 inches out and up. So far so good.




by:

Amazing customer service by the Etrailer team! There was a long back-order delay (from manufacturer) in getting this rack but Nikki kept me informed and up to date regularly, and Shannon provided a seamless checkout process once the rack arrived. 2 Days later it was on the back of my car.
This rack is definitely worth the wait and I'm very happy with it. The swing away function provides easy and unobstructed access to the hatch, which makes it so much easier for my dog to jump in & out, or loading larger items when the bike is on the rack. No more squeezing between a tilted down rack and the back of the car. Very intuitive design and sturdy fitment. The bikes fit easily and quickly. The quick release handle allows you to tip it down, or fold it up to the back of the car effortlessly.




by:

This rack is exactly what I needed on my pickup. I built a 6' long drawer in the bed of my Tacoma between the wheel wells and it's nearly impossible to use a normal platform style rack. I was able to use a Kuat NV but had to remove the bikes in order to open the tailgate. Even then, the tailgate rested on the rack and did not do the paint any favors. The swing style platform rack is perfect for me.

I got an awesome deal when etrailer had a 30% off sale on everything from RockyMounts. It shipped very fast once the manufacturer had supplied them. etrailer was also very good at keeping in touch about the production delay.

Putting it together was pretty straight forward, although I did have an issue with the blue T-handle bolt not threading properly into the rack to secure the swing arm. I was able to stop by the RockyMounts shop since it's about 10 minutes from me and they made a minor repair. This would have been a bigger issue if I did not live in Boulder, but I appreciate a company that stands behind their product like that.

I also had to file down the black lock to fit onto the hitch bolt. The bolt was not quite long enough for my hitch receiver. Again, annoying but not a major issue.

The one downside I would say in coming from a Kuat NV is not having a repair stand built in.




by:

Solid rack. Fits on Sprinter 3500 very well. You can open the door about 12” without moving the rack. The rack swings completely away and locks to side of Sprinter. Can open doors 90+ degrees. The trailer light plug in connection got in the way of the lock during install, so I had to take it off and then lock the rack and reinstall trailer plug in. It will make it harder to steal now. You should download instructions off site and transfer to iPad so you can expand them. That was clear and I could tell what screw or bolt went where. Instillation a little over an hour cause I didn’t know how it worked. Could do it in 20 minutes now. Best rack I’ve seen for Sprinters.




by:

We have it on our Jeep for our e-bikes Couldn’t have made a better choice. With the 8” hitch extension, it fits perfectly behind the spare tire. The swing-away feature allows us easy access to open the back of the Jeep.




by:

This bike rack makes all the difference! I’ve had ones before that lean away from the car but being able to fully swing 180 degrees out makes accessing the trunk that much easier. I really appreciate it when I’m loading in a rolled up raft, dogs, or camping gear. The directions were clear on assembly and it came with spare straps and a spare handle. etrailer did a great video on it and it arrived at my door 3 days after the order with normal shipping. Love it!




by:

This is an extremely sturdy bike rack that swings out of the way when the back doors on the van are opened. We travel often in the warmer season, this rack enables us to take our bikes everywhere we go.




by:

We were looking for a platform swing away bike rack. I was a little worried it would be heavy to get on the Edge. Not a problem! You have to expect some weight to be a good sturdy rack. Instructions are very good!
????????




by:

I bought the RockyMounts BacSstage so we can take our Grandson and 2 Great Granddaughters with us on the trails. A 20 inch bicycle and a 2 child bicycle trailer lay flat under a tonneau cover. Just swing the bikes out to the side, drop the tailgate, unload and go. Perfect solution for us! I'm 65 years young and have no trouble lifting the rack into the 2 inch hitch. The folks at etrailer are great to deal with, great communication and fast shipping.




by:

Excellent product. Swings out of the way of the truck and jeep tailgates. Even moves far enough to extend the rear slide on the RV.




by:

This was a game changer for hauling our bikes. We fulltime RV and this allowed us to access our carry items in the bed of our truck without unloading the ebikes. We can just move the bikes off to the side and then open up our tailgate to get the items we need. Would recommend this bike carrier.




by:

Used on the back of an RV for 2 electric mountain bikes. It does everything it needs to do. The swing allows me to use a tow bar to tow a car behind the RV. Since the bikes are behind the RV, they can be covered while traveling without a lot of wind resistance.




by:

Terrific experience so far. Perfect swing away for our sprinter.


Comments
Still a terrific product. Many successful trips with our bikes. Thank you!

Good bike rack but way too heavy. I have trouble lifting it and installing on my jeep because of the weight. Should have been made of aluminum. Must have had a very conservative structural engineer design it.


Comments
The swing out feature that this bike rack provides adds to the weight of the rack overall. We do have other bike racks that weight less, for example part # KU84FR

$449.00
, which weighs approximately 48 pounds. It does not have the swing away feature.

I just got my Rocky Mounts bike rack today, so I can't review that, but.... I ordered it on Tuesday at approx. 4:30 p.m. and it was delivered before lunch on Thursday. It shipped immediately. I live in a rural area, so getting it that fast was impressive! Assembly went well, maybe an hour. We mounted on the back of our Roadtrek campervan using the 8" extender.

Update! We took a two week to Florida in Feb. and could not be happier with the bike rack!! Easy to setup and maneuver, sturdy, solid, perfect! No complaints! Hope to use it for years.


Comments
We love the RockyMounts Backstage bike rack. It is mounted on our camoervan and transported 2 bikes hundreds if miles. Just recently we purchased 2 RAD Runner ebikes and plan to take them on our upcoming cross country trip. We had added an 8 extender, so we also added a anti-rattle U clamp $x.x where the adapter connects to the hitch to eliminate any movement. Customer Service was invaluable when determining if we could transport the ebikes.

  • Opening the Rear Doors on a Ram ProMaster With a RockyMounts BackStage Hitch Bike Rack Installed
    The RockyMounts BackStage, part # RKY10002 swings open to be 49 inches from the shank to the closest part of the rack. This should allow the doors of your ProMaster Van to open, but not to the full distance they normally do. 2017 Ram ProMaster doors swing open to 260-degrees, and you won't be able to get to that full distance with the RockyMounts swung out. You'll probably get closer to 90 to 120-degrees open, which is still plenty to load and unload cargo.

  • Can The Tailgate Be Lowered with the RockyMounts BackStage Installed and No Bikes
    The RockyMounts BackStage 2 Bike Platform Rack part # RKY10002 will need to be swung out and away from the vehicle in order for you to be able to lower your tailgate. Therefore, you will not be able to lower your tailgate without bikes attached and without the rack swung out. The reason for this is that the shank rise which is needed to provide ground clearance on certain vehicles positions the tray up too high. The majority of bike racks will also not allow you to lower the tailgate...

  • Why Does Hitch Extender Cut Capacity of Hitch but Not Longer Bike Rack
    Hitch extenders have a cut and dry weight capacity reduction of 50 percent when they are used in a trailer hitch. This is due to the added length and the added movement the extender adds. So the big difference between using an extender and a bike rack that has a longer shank is that the added movement isn't there which exaggerates the weight's force in the hitch. Also worth mentioning is that the science behind the rule isn't super exact if you wanted to really get down to the details since...
