With anti-sway cradles and a built-in cable lock, the TX-104 transports 4 bikes safely and securely. Add arms that fold down and a tilting feature for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area and you get a near perfect bike rack.

Approved for use on cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs

Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


The versatile Rola TX-104 hitch-mounted bike carrier allows you to safely and securely carry four bicycles of almost any frame size on the back of your vehicle.


Rola TX-103 bike rack anti-sway cradles

The bike rack has large, soft anti-sway cradles that hold your bikes securely in place during travel with rubber straps and that accommodate bike-frame tube sizes up to 2" wide and 3" tall. The anti-sway devices touch your bike frame at three points to keep the bikes from moving back and forth, eliminating bike-to-bike contact during travel and protecting your bikes's painted surfaces. The cradles can be repositioned along the rack arms to ensure that your bikes remain properly spaced.


TX-104 arms outTX-104 arms up

The TX-104 has dual arms that provide your bikes with excellent support. You can fold down the arms for convenient storage when the rack is not in use by removing the handle mounted on the top of the upright support arm. When the arms are lowered replace the handle to lock the arms in place in the down position.


The bike carrier includes an integrated cable lock that stores inside the upright support arm when you are not using the rack. The cable lock secures to a post at the end of one of the rack arms to lock your bikes to the carrier. The cable lock comes with two keys.


Rola TX-103 bike rack anti-sway cradles

The TX-104 offers easy access to the rear cargo area without your having to remove the bikes from the rack. You can tilt the bike carrier away from your vehicle by pulling a pin at the foot of the rack. Pull the upright arm of the rack up and forward until it rests on the stops that keep it from hitting the ground. To restore the rack to the upright position, push the rack back into place and insert the pin and clip.

Well put together, had some paint scuffs on main tube before it was ever removed out of the box(not etrailers fault). Going on a 14 Jeep Wrangler JKU . If you have larger aftermarket wheels, you will need a hitch extender. Only other down side is if you have 4 bikes, weight is only 100lbs limit. Others are 120-140. 223289

Only complaint are exposed bolt heads that can scratch your bike frame. Will cover with tape. Other than that, strong and sturdy, and easy set up. Tilt down works great. 352051

The product is well built and a great value for the price. Straps are thick and hold the bikes well. I have 3 bikes, 2 of which are kids bikes and had no problem strapping them. This type of rack is not for off road use. Delivery was also quicker than I expected. 469247

Good value. Unfortunately one of the welds had a drip that caused the rack to not fit together. After 10 minutes of sawing furiously with a small hack saw, was able to remove the drip of dried weld and bolt it together. Other than that, pretty solid rack for the money. 152125

For the money a very nice 4 bike carrier system. Integrated lock is a plus. 824523

This has been great for carrying bikes including tandems for the last year. We put many miles on including multiple 10 hr plus trips. Everything is sturdy and still as good as new after all the travel and many times on and off the van. It can be tough to tip down with two tandem bikes and a bike trailer on to open the van hatch but that is to be expected. I thought the price was very good for the strong build. 809654

I am more then pleased with etrailer’s product , speedy delivery and EXCELLENT customer service !! I decided to buy bikes for our family to get exercise during this Pandemic but my 2012 Honda does not have a hitch. I had first called our local Honda dealership to just ask if they had hitches and how much it would cost . With purchase and installation it was going to cost me over $800.00 ... and that is before even buying a bike rack !!!!!! I found etrailer online and decided it would be easiest to call the customer service because I honestly wasn’t even sure what type of hitch I would need . I quickly got through and spoke to Tara G . She was so kind and knowledgeable about exactly what I needed and after finding me a hitch for just $90.00 she asked if I needed a bike rack as well? I was able to Purchase both the hitch and the bike rack over the phone and it only cost me $249.00 !!! I will definitely be recommending etrailer to all my friends in the future ! Thank you etrailer and thank you Tara !!!! 798966

Excellent product. Put a 16 inch, 24 inch and a 26 in bikes, all in one trip to Hilton Head. Safe and secure and I was moving 75-80 mph through the mountains and curves and it held strong, didn’t rock or move around and bikes and wheels were secure. Lock is awesome built in. Only complaint was it says it stores 4 bikes but that 4th bike would be too tight for my taste. I didn’t want to scratch the other 3, but it is possible. 5 stars all the way. 640141

I like this bike rack, I’ve used it a few times and it does the job it’s intended to do. Installing and removing is easy. I use it casually I take the family to the park or beach and we want to take our bikes out, the lock feature is a lifesaver. Would definitely recommend 638481

Well I was comparing 4-bike racks and found this Rola TX104. Made like the expensive ones but at a great price. Heavy duty steel with a nice powder coat. Includes bike lock and anti-sway hold downs. It's definitely heavy duty and handles the bikes easily. Everything about the product is well built and strong. Ordered on a Saturday received it by Thursday. Great service. I have always had great service from etrailer. We use the bike rack for long trips with 4 bikes. It replaces a much cheaper Walmart rack that couldn't handle the job. 338132

E-trailer was so professional and stood behind there product. I had a minor flaw and they shipped me another bike rack and did not have to. Great customer service. Thank you e-trailer and Cathy T 284003



- 59401
by:

Easy installation. Great value. Not as sturdy as the Yakima or Thule, but half the price. Only complaint so far is their use of a threaded bolt that ties the rack to the receiver. This precludes the use of my locking hitch pin and means that anyone with a wrench can take the entire rack -- bikes and all -- within a minute. So now I have to buy another pin lock that'll fit the hole of this bolt. 277671

Ask the Experts about this Rola Hitch Bike Racks

  • Does Rola TX-104 4-Bike Rack Require A Bike Adapter With Step Through Frames
    I was able to find your account and it looks like you have the Rola TX-104 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches part # 59401 which is a hanging rack. If you have a step through frame, you will need an adapter bar like part # HRBA-PRO which will give the bike a horizontal top frame tube to hang the bike from on the rack. The bikes may still hang on the rack without the adapter if the frame is not a deep step through but they will be crooked. It is best to use an adapter.

  • Picking Out Replacement Key for Rola TX-104 4-Bike Rack # 59401
    If you knew what the key number was for your Rola bike rack part # 59401 then yes you could order a replacement key. For example, if you had a key number 010 the correct key replacement would be # 38373-010. But if you don't know what key number you had we wouldn't be able to help you as it's not on the lock core.

  • Adapter Bar for Girls Bike Carried on Rola TX-104 4-Bike Hitch Rack 59401
    Since the Rola TX-104 4-Bike Rack # 59401 has closely-spaced arms (14-inches from outside edge to outside edge) it will not require addition of a bike adapter bar # UB01 for many bikes. All you need to do is see if the girl's bike in question has a frame design that will allow the two 14-inch-spaced arms to fit inside the frame to suspend the bike level. In cases where the bike won't fit ideally the adapter bar provides an alterative mounting surface for the carrier. The bar simply connects...

  • Recommended Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 2015 Honda Pilot
    The 2015 Honda Pilot came standard with a Class III trailer hitch receiver, which is a 2 inch hitch. For a hitch mount bike rack that holds more than two bikes I would look at the Rola TX # 59401. This carries up to 4 bikes and will tilt away from you Pilot to give you more access to the rear hatch. The Rola TX includes anti-sway cradles and a cable lock that stores inside the upright support arm. A second option with a bit more features is the Yakima FullTilt # Y02462. The FullTilt...

  • Is There a Replacement Key for Rola TX-104 Bike Rack?
    For your Rola TX-104 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Tilting # 59401 does not have a specific lock core it uses. If you know the key number you had, then I've linked all our replacement options to help. If you do not know the key number, I can't help because the core doesn't' have a corresponding number on it. An option to keep using your bike rack is to simply use a cable lock like # e98891 and looping the cable through your safety chain loops on the hitch.

  • How to Reduce Motion of Rola TX-104 4-Bike Hitch-Mount Rack # 59401
    Thank you for your Rola bike rack purchase from etrailer. There will always be some degree of random motion with any hitch mount bike rack, though some will be more stable than others. You can try loading your bikes so that the heaviest ones are nearest the hitch; this will help to reduce the pendulum effect - the tendency for side-to-side movement. You may also want to try using some type of stabilizing strap. Curt offers their # 18050 but there are many types available including...

    The listed weight capacity of the Rola TX-104 4-bike rack, part # 59401, is correct at 100 lbs for 4 bikes. The Yakima hanging hitch 4-bike racks do seem to run at a little higher weight capacity for 4 bikes at 120 lbs, and the Thule hanging hitch 4 bike racks are at 140 lbs weight capacity. I am including links to product pages of the Thule and Yakima 4-bike hanging bike racks.

  • Recommendation for a Hitch Mounted 4-Bike Rack that Uses a Regular Hitch Pin
    The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR uses 1 hitch bolt to secure it to the hitch. The only other hole that is in the shank is there to hold the 1-1/4 to 2 inch adapter to the shank. A regular hitch pin will not fit. For a similar bike rack that will allow you to use your own locking hitch pin you can use the Rola TX-104, # 59401. this rack also has a built-in cable lock to secure the bikes to the rack. Or you can use a locking anti-rattle hitch pin, # 63232, if you don't already have...

    Without knowing what 4 bike Rola Bike Rack you have it is hard for me to say for certain what fastener type is used to hold the caps on the end of the arms of your rack, but it sounds like a Torx head bolt. I went out and checked out the Rola TX-104 part # 59401 and it used a standard Philips head screw. There are a few variants of the Torx head bolts though. Because of that I attached a picture that shows all of the different styles of bolt heads for you to check out and compare to...
