RockyMount 10007 MonoRail Solo Bike Rack In Use

The RockyMounts MonoRail Solo platform-style rack that lets you easily carry 1 bike using your vehicle's 1-1/4" or 2" hitch. This single bike rack is able to accommodate electric and fat tire bikes with ease and is perfect for the rider that likes to ride solo. A ratcheting arm and adjustable wheel straps secure your bike without contacting the frame. A front-mounted release lever allows you to tilt the rack down and gain access to your vehicle's rear cargo area, or it can fold the rack up for a simple storage solution. The included hitch lock secures the rack to your vehicle, and an integrated cable lock secures your bike to the rack.


Wheel-Mount Design for Easy Bike Loading

RockyMount 10007 MonoRail Solo Bike Rack Adjustable Arms

The rack allows you to quickly and easily load and carry a bike on the back of your vehicle. The ratcheting arm securely holds your bike by the front wheel so there's no frame contact. Simply push the button on the hook and slide it firmly into place over your front wheel. The wheel hook is coated for grip and works with tire diameters up to 29".


Pivoting Rear Wheel Cradles with Ratcheting Wheel Straps

RockyMount 10007 MonoRail Solo Adjustable Ratchet Straps

The pivoting rear-wheel cradle allows the rack to accommodate bikes with wheel bases up to 48" long. The cradle includes a ratcheting, rubber strap to hold your bike's rear wheel securely in place on the tray.


MonoRail Solo Fat Bike Wheel Straps

The MonoRail Solo also comes with a wheel strap extension that attaches to the standard ratcheting strap to increase the usable length and secure wider tires. This allows the cradle to hold fat bike tires up to 5" wide.


Front-Mounted Release Lever for Easy Tilting

RockyMounts Mono Rail Solo Tilt Action Lever

The front-mounted release lever allows you to easily tilt the MonoRail Solo. The rack tilts down with or without your bike loaded for convenient access to your vehicle's rear cargo area


RockyMount 1007 MonoRail Solo Foldable Storage 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.

Easy Installation with Threaded Hitch Pin

RockyMounts MonoRail Anti Rattle Hitch Pin

The MonoRail Solo installs quickly and easily 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.


RockyMounts MonoRail Solo Hitch Adapter

A removable adapter sleeve is included so the rack can be converted for use with 1-1/4" hitch receivers. The sleeve attaches to the shank with a single screw and can be installed or removed quickly.


Complete Security

RockyMount 1007 MonoRail Solo Built-In Cable Lock

The rack comes with a hitch lock and a cable lock to deter theft of both the rack and your bike. The cable lock wraps around your bike's frame and secures to the rack with the included lock core.


RockyMount MonoRail Solo Locking Hitch Pin

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.


Optional 1-Bike Add-On

RockyMount MonoRail Solo Add-On 1-Bike Extension

There is an optional 1-bike add-on available (sold separately) for the RockyMount MonoRail Solo that will allow you to convert it from a single bike carrier to a 2-bike carrier. This is great for occasions when a friend wants to tag along, or if you find a permanent riding partner.

Feels solid, minimal wobbling. Easy to get bike on and off, and to access the trunk with the bike on. Like that it can be expanded to hold 2 bikes, and the relatively low cost. Used with a Curt hitch from this site on a 2017 Miata.


Comments
After a year of constant use, its still good, but requires occasional lubrication. Also the extension for the second bike has trouble with bolts coming loose, and requires loctite every time its installed. Finally, the wobble with 2 bikes on the 1 14 reciever is enough to make you drive a bit more carefully. If you can fit it, get the 2. For a single bike use I think this is still best bang for buck.

I just finished installing this rack on my 2017 Subaru Outback. I've been researching platform racks for about 2 months now, and the most important things to me (other than a reasonable price) were no frame contact, ease of getting the bike on and off the rack, not too heavy for me to take it off the car, and enough clearance in the back for me to close my garage door. This rack is perfect for me. And I like that it's expandable to two bikes if I want to do that down the line. It came very well packaged. I am a single gal and not handy AT ALL, but I was able to do the installation with no problem. I did put my bike on the rack and took a short test ride, it was very stable. Very solid well made product!


Comments
One year later, still loving my Rocky Mounts bike rack. Easy to get on and off when the seasons change, easy to take my bike on and off, doesnt interfere with my tailgate at all. I get lots of questions about it!

I bought this rack to carry a Trek Verve+2 electric bike on back of 2019 Tundra. The rack was easy to assemble, only 6 screws and fitting to hitch. Instructions very clear, overall quality excellent. It doesn’t wobble at all because it is bolted to the hitch. Note that bar that fits across front wheel needs to be past top center of wheel, preferably against fork. So, if you have a front fender, you may have a problem. My Trek has a front fender, but I was able to go under it after adjusting it higher. I am close to forks, but not up against them, and it is very secure. On theft security, the two matching locks for hitch and a separate cable work well.

This was my very first purchase ever of a bike rack and I have to say that not only was etrailer.com the best price I found but also the most helpful with information on the various racks available. I wanted a single bike rack for my new eBike and after looking through numerous possibilities, finally decided on the Rockymounts Monorail Solo as not only did it fit the bill for a single bike but also has the advantage of an add-on rack should I ever decide I need to haul around two bikes rather than just one. My major priorities were a rack that would safely hold the additional weight of an eBike, be easy to mount as I'm older and have a bad back on occasion and not break the bank with cost. After watching the available online video and using the easy-to-follow enclosed instructions and tools, I was able to install the RockyMounts Monorail Solo rack quite effortlessly by myself in less than 30 minutes. Loading and unloading my bike (which weighs about 50 pounds) is quite easy and when not in use, the rack folds up close to the back of my car. Should I need to access the back of my Tucson while the bike is loaded, it's very easy to lean the rack forward and open the hatch. Overall I am very pleased with this product and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a solo rack.

Easy to assemble in a few steps, included all tools necessary, plus locks and keys. Lightweight but sturdy bike rack. Installed on a 2013 Prius C and the hatchback just clears the rack when not in use (added bonus!). Low profile design but with plenty of ground clearance. No wobble design is a plus too. Overall very impressed with the quality and fitment. And once again very happy with etrailer’s service and quick shipping.

Great rack! I bought this to take my bike across the country. Needed something that could easily allow me to ride when I wanted. It fit perfect on my Subaru Baja. The tilt function really made this rack functional while en route. I drove on some pretty gnarly roads and the rack held up great. It did get a little shaky and noisy when on loose gravel but that was to be expected. I've had the rack for about a year now and still no complaints. When I received the rack the box was damaged and the rubber parts had some dings on them. Customer service was super helpful and made everything right. Definitely recommend these guys over competitors.

I think this bike rack is awesome. I purchased an eBike which was too heavy to put on the car top rack. (in fact I bent my roof a little putting the bike on top.) The answer was to get a bike rack rated for the weight of my bike and us the hitch on the car. The eBike rides great, the rack is perfect for my needs, and it works as designed. Awesome!

I probably should have done a bit more research, but unfortunately I am unable to open my rear doors with mount attached, even in the titled form. Other than that, the bike mount is nice and very well built. It’s quite heavy but not too bad. It’s easy to put your bike on it and easy to remove.



- RKY10007

Installed easily. Solidly made. Reasonable weight. Ample space between rack and hatch when not in use allows the hatch to open and close normally. Handles work properly. Easy to put the bike on and take off. Wheel tray distance from the ground is manageable, even with the higher weight of an e-bike. Tilt-away feature adds convenience. I use this rack for an e-bike with a downtube battery. By grabbing the front wheel and rear tire, the retention system does not interfere with the e-bike battery in any way (though I routinely remove it for travel) while leaving frame untouched. I only needed for one bike - the others easily go on the roof, but I like the option of adding a second carrier if and when needed.

Bought this Solo RockyMount rack for my E-bike. Not easy to find a bike rack that holds fat tires and the weight of the E-bike. This bike rack is better than I had hoped for, very well built but light weight and my E-bike goes on it very easy.

A preliminary review of the bike rack is it’s of nice quality, sturdy and finished well. Will add to this review when it’s installed. Thanks to Roger and the crew at etrailer.com. My original order was delivered to a wrong address by the carrier. I contacted etrailer.com and spoke to Roger. Once I had explained the problem he immediately shipped me a replacement for the lost bike rack!! Thanks again Roger.

I'm so glad I bought The RockyMounts Rack. It's easy for me to mount it on my car and even easier to pick up my mountain bike and secure it. I'm considered a "senior" and this rack has helped me not have to struggle to get my bike in the back of my car. I highly recommend this bike rack for everyone.

I got this rack to transport my Radrover fat tire ebike on my 2015 Subaru Outback when I drive down to the Trestles parking lot for a surf (usually 5-6 times a week). I've had it for 6 months and couldn't be happier. The hardest part is lifting the 68 lb ebike onto the rack, but that has nothing to do with the rack itself. Once on, it's very easy to ratchet down the front tire arm/hook and strap in the rear tire. It holds tight and feels secure while driving. Also love the tilting feature when I need to get into the back hatch of my Outback. The cable lock and hitch lock pod are also a great additions. Well done, RockyMounts.

This rack epicly FAILED. 1. First trip out the ratcheting hook loosened and the bike fell off the rack and was carried behind my RV so I didn't see it. Pedestrian flagged me down and helped me hoist it back on the rack. Am sick and fearful that the next time the hook FAILS will be on the interstate with much more disastrous results. A welder service staff ratcheted it down, much stronger than me, so am trying to decide next steps. 2. Video has no info on how to use the attached lock. Welder service staff knew what to do, 3. There is no reference on how HIGH the bike has to be lifted to sit in the really wide cradle. This is not meant for most women to lift a 55 lb. ebike above your shoulders to sit on the cradles. One male neighbor even struggled with it. 4. Sorry that it took me months to pick the bike and use the rack or else I'd be returning this bad choice of a product!!!


Comments
What sort of vehicle was the bike rack installed upon? As mentioned above in the product description, this rack is meant for motorhomes and passenger vehicles, but NOT meant to be installed on a towed trailer/camper of any kind. A towed trailer will have a much stiffer suspension and a longer rear overhang which will subject the rack to more bouncing and rattling than it was designed to withstand. This could very well lead to the hook being loosened and the bike falling over on its side. The lifting height of the bicycle will be a function of the hitch height of the vehicle. The rack does need to provide a certain amount of ground clearance at the rear of the vehicle or it will bottom out when pulling out of sloped driveways or driving over speed bumps.

Great bike rack so far. It was easy to put together and install. Used it today for the first time. Easy to mount bike and very stable when on. Buying it on etrailer was easy. It was fifty dollars cheaper then other online retailers and with free shipping i saved over 100 bucks.

I have not used the bike rack yet but I Have put it together an I have installed it on my truck. I have placed my road bike on it and secured it. I am very comfortable and confident that it will workout great. It appears to be constructed very well and seems to be very sturdy. Installing the bike on the rack is very simply. I am happy with my choice so much that I also order the second bike add on.

My suggestion for a fair and meaningful survey sent this link a good 30 days after ownership of any product because as of Now, it is installed and I put my bike on this , and it "seems" like it is going to be a good product but I will update you all in time about that piece of things as it is way too soon to tell. I will say this, install was a breeze and the overall unit seems simple but it looks effective for carrying a bike , with not a whole lot that can go wrong ... biggest thing we will tell in time how the actual holder handles 200+ mile trips that I will be taken to Northern AZ to MTB... So three stars for now , with I am hoping the ability to update review in a month or so ...

This is my first hitch rack, so my only basis of comparison is roof racks. In that respect this is much nicer because I don't have to remove the front wheel and don't have to lift the bike as high. The bike appears to sway more, but that's to be expected for numerous reasons. There's so much clearance, I can open the trunk of my 2016+ Civic sedan with the rack folded up, or with a bike on it without needing to fold it away. Only minor nitpicks: I always seem to roll up to the rack with the bike facing the wrong way- it would be nice if it were set up for a bike rolled up from the usual sidewalk side of the car, but then rolling away wouldn't be as easy. Whatever happened to the overcenter buckles for the wheel strap like my roof rack had? Now I have to yank on the strap to make sure it's tight instead of folding the lever down. I'm not sure how this will deal with fenders on the front wheel when the rainy season hits, and even the arm pushing on the V-brakes makes me a bit nervous. The coating on the arm (truck bed liner spray?) cracked a bit within the first couple of weeks, but it doesn't seem to be peeling off yet. Due to my low hitch, the back of the rack occasionally scrapes on driveways. I haven't yet developed the habit of taking them diagonally to reduce the chance of scraping- it's not a problem with my driveway, just in front of some businesses. The back of the rack even has a stub of the main 1-1/4" drawbar sticking out that seems like a sacrificial piece- it doesn't seem to have any other reason for being there. Still, I've scraped the bigger, diagonal, box section piece. This hitch pin to end dimension looks pretty similar to other racks, so it's more a function of my low hitch, but I would certainly like to know of other racks where scraping is less of an issue, maybe where the drawbar curves up quickly. Pictured is a photo with a combination of Etrailer's dimensions and my measurements.

Ask the Experts about this RockyMounts Hitch Bike Racks

  • Recommended Hitch and Platform Bike Carrier to Use on 2014 Land Rover Evoque
    I'll start off by saying that the first thing you need is a hitch receiver on your vehicle in order to carry the bike rack. I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13128 which will provide you with a durable hitch to carry any potential bike rack. This hitch has a 2" receiver on it which will provide you with a greater variety of hitch mounted accessories that can be used. When it comes to a bike rack, your choice of going with a platform rack is a good start considering...

    The hook/arm of the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo 1 # RKY10007 would fit most likely if you could get it up into position on the front wheel of your fat bike, but I think the challenge would be more fitting the arm up next to the rack.

  • How to Determine if RockyMounts MonoRail Solo Will Fit a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a Spare
    The RockyMounts MonoRail Solo 1 Bike Platform Rack # RKY10007 is compatible with both 1-1/4" and 2" receivers so it should fit your Jeep just fine, the only issue would be the spare tire clearance but we can find that out. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when it is folded down is 12" while that changes to 6-3/4" when folded up. I doubt you will be able to fold this carrier up but if your spare tire sits less than 12" away from the center of the...

  • Single Bike Rack that Will Clear Spare Tire and Not Block Camera on 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited
    We have a few single bike racks that could work for your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited. First up we have the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo # RKY10007. This rack measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the rack when deployed. When you have no bike on it and the arm and wheel cradle folded you will still have a good view from the factory backup camera. Next we have the similar Thule T1, # TH9041. This rack does not stick out as far measuring 7 inches...

  • Bike Rack for 65 lb Bike to Clear Spare Tire on 2017 Jeep Wrangler
    In regards to the issue about clearance you will need to take a quick measurement to determine what rack will work to clear the spare tire on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Just take something with a straight edge and hold it against your spare tire and measure from the center of your Jeep's hitch pin hole to that straight edge; you will need a rack where the closest part of it is no more than that distance. For example, if you took that measurement and found it was 11 inches then...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for E-Bike with Fenders
    For an e-bike with fenders we do have great bike rack options but the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo you mentioned would not be what you need as it is not compatible with bikes that have fenders. The best option is the Thule EasyFold part # TH903202 as it has the weight capacity needed for the heavier e-bikes, has a frame clamp setup that allows it to work on bikes with fenders and also comes with ramps to make loading and unloading the heavier bikes easier. See attached review video.

  • What is the Capacity of the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo When I Add the 1 Bike Add-On
    You can add the 1 Bike Add-On for RockyMounts Monorail # RKY10005 to either the MonoRail # RKY10004 or MonoRail Solo # RKY10007 and increase the capacity of your rack by 60-lbs to 120-lbs; it will not lower the capacity of your existing rack. When loading your bikes, you'll want to make sure that you place the heaviest bike on the part of the carrier closest to the vehicle, so your 55-lbs E-bike will likely need to be the bike occupying that position.

  • Clearance Dimensions for Single Bike Racks for Clearing Rear Spare
    What's the distance from the center of your hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on your rear spare? If it's less than 12 inches the RockyMounts MonoRail part # RKY10007 will clear the spare. The T1 part # TH9041 would require that distance to be less than 7 inches and the Yakima SingleSpeed part # Y02481 would require 7-1/2 inches.

  • Recommended Bike Carrier That Allows Easy Loading For Heavy Bikes And Electric Bikes
    The RockyMounts MonoRail Solo 1 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # RKY10007 that you mentioned has a shank rise of about 4-3/4". This is a fairly similar amount of shank rise compared to the other 1-bike carriers that are available for your 40lb electric bike. If you think this will be an issue for you then I highly recommend looking into the Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches # Y36FR instead of the RockyMounts. While this is more bike rack...

  • Will The RockyMounts MonoRail Bike Rack Allow Tailgate Access On A 2017 Nissan Frontier?
    We haven't been able to test-fit the Rocky Mounts Mono Rail Solo Single Bike Platform Rack # RKY10007 on a 2017 Nissan Frontier yet, but you can take a few measurements to help determine fitment. You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the tailgate when folded down; this measurement will be in an L shape which you can see in the photo I have attached. You can then compare your measurements to the bike rack's specs shown in the diagram I have attached...

  • Will The RockyMounts MonoRail Solo Bike Rack Fit A Subaru Forester With 1-1/4" Hitch Receiver?
    It sounds like you have a 1-1/4" hitch receiver on your 2016 Subaru Forester since the only other option would be a 2" hitch receiver. Either way, the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo 1 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # RKY10007 will work well since it is compatible with both size receivers. This is a really nice bike rack that has integrated locks for the bike and the bike rack so that your belongings will be safe and secured. I attached a demonstration video that shows...

  • RockyMounts MonoRail Solo Compatibility with 2015 Jeep Cherokee
    The RockyMounts MonoRail Solo 1 Bike Platform Rack # RKY10007 will partly cover your license plate both when being used as well as when folded up. Most of the time this won't be an issue because the bike rack will leave some of it visible so it won't be completely obstructed, but it will partly cover it. The view will be similar to the attached video of the Dodge Charger based on the position of the license plate to hitch receiver.

  • How to Carry One Bike on the Back of a 2012 Roadtrek Motorhome
    In order to recommend a bike rack that would clear the spare tire on the back of your 2012 Roadtrek Motorhome, I would need to know the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the spare tire carrier. One option you have would be to use a single bike carrier like the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo 1 Bike Platform Rack part # RKY10007 and then a hitch extender like the Curt Hitch Extender part # C45791. The hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of...
