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-103 hitch-mounted bike carrier allows you to safely and securely carry three 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.


Rola TX-103 bike rack arm folding leverRola TX-103 bike rack arms folded down

The TX-103 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.


Rola TX-103 bike rack integrated cable lock

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 tilting bike rackRola TX-103 bike rack tilted

The TX-103 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 removing a pin and clip 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.


Rola flip shank

The bike carrier features Rola's patented flip shank, which has both a 1-1/4" square end and a 2" square end for use with either size hitch receiver. The shank rotates around a clevis pin and locks into your desired position with a simple pin and clip. This eliminates the need for a hitch adapter and makes moving the rack between vehicles very quick and easy.

Video Transcript for Rola TX-103 Hitch Bike Rack Review

Today we'll be reviewing the Rola TX-103 Three Bike Carrier for inch and a quarter and two-inch hitches, part number 59403. This bike carrier features large, soft, anti-sway cradles that hold your bike securely in place with the rubber straps. It accommodates most bike frame tube sizes, up to two inches wide and three inches tall. The cradles slide along the arms to ensure proper bike spacing and they also prevent bike-to-bike contact during travel to protect the paint and surfaces. The dual arms offer excellent bike stability and conveniently fold down for storage when the bike rack is not in use. Some bike styles may require an adapter bar, part number 64005, which is sold separately.

It has an integrated retractable cable lock that provides bike security. It stores inside the upright support arm of the bike rack when not in use, and comes with two keys. The patented flip chain rotates to fit inch and a quarter and two inch hitches and switches in seconds by removing the pin and clip. The silver powder coat finish protects against rust and corrosion. It has a weight capacity of 80 pounds and comes with a five-year limited warranty.

Now that we've gone over some features and specs of the Rola bike carrier, we'll go ahead and show you how to install it. The vehicle we are using for demonstration purposes is equipped with a class three hitch, so we will make sure that the flip chain is on the two-inch side. Now before we begin our installation, we will first need to put the anti-sway block with spring inside the hollow shank of the carrier. We'll slide the shank over the carrier into the opening of the hitch, line up our pinholes, thread our anti-rattle bolt through the pinholes, and tighten with a wrench. Now that the bick carrier is installed, we're ready to show you how to load the bike.

We'll swing out the cradle arms by pulling the silver pin at the top right-hand side of the mast, and the red lever at the top of the mast to swing the cradle arms out, we'll then put it back in place, securing the dual arms. We'll make sure that the cradle straps are undone, we'll set the bike into the frame cradles, and secure it with the straps. Now we'll go ahead and show you how it looks driving down the road. That completes today's overview of the Rola TX-103 Three Bike Carrier, part number 59403.

This is the best bike rack. Very sturdy, easily assembled and easy to use. The tilting feature is fantastic because there is enough room for my dog to get in and out the back without taking the bikes off. 645045

Curt trailer hitch & Rolo 3 bike rack for 2017 Toyota Rav4 SE 477670

Excellent product. Got it for a fifth wheel application and it works great. Straps are versatile to accommodate different frames and secure well. Security cable is a plus. Just moved it over to a 2018 Chevy Tahoe and the tilt back feature is perfect for allowing the rear door to raise. Would buy again. Thanks to etrailer. No one has faster shipping! 577864

I would rate this higher if it was only for light use, around town short trips type and only 2bikes. I took it on a road trip with 3 regular bikes. It was quite a puzzle to get them all on. As we travelled the arms drooped lower and lower and the bikes moved against each other so much that we had some damage. I replaced it during our trip fro fear the arms would break or the bikes would drag because they were so low. 442587

This rack is sweet. It looks great putting it together was a bit confusing at first but didn't take too long at all to figure out. I have it on my 2001 Nissan Pathfinder and fits well it the bolt that is attached to the 2 inch hitch is extremely tight. There is no give in the attachment between the two only a little give where the silver bar attaches to the hitch pieces. It fits my bike just perfect and it rocks! Overall it has a smooth ride the frame no shake attachment is a great touch. A bang for the buck. 142160


Comments
It has been a year now and it still holds up I had three bikes on it for a 6 hour trip going over 5 mountain passes and all the bikes were still on. The hitch attachment is sturdy, however, the rack shakes alot from other attachments. It is fine to hold bikes I just wish it didnt bounce around as much when not being used.

Thanks for your follow up and reply. Depending on your vehicle configuration you may want to consider using an item like the Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap # 18050. Using a strap like this can help eliminate some of the bounce you mentioned.

Very nice product, well constructed and sturdy. The directions left a little to be desired but I figured things out anyway. So far so good. Good thing I read other reviews to see that I needed to buy an adaptor so I could place my wife's bike on there or I would be waiting for one now. 422364

This is the second of this bike rack I’ve purchased; like mine so much I bought one for my nephew & his growing family. Quality product & the built in lock is a real convenience. Buy a 20 dollar 1/2 inch hitch pin lock and theft of the rack itself is greatly reduced. 675064

Received my order 2 days earlier than estimated time of delivery. Went together quite easily with only one “reinstall” dudes don’t read instructions unless something doesn’t look right. Installed on back of Nissan Frontier and happy to see it clears tailgate when tilted out. Have not loaded bikes on yet but I can see no problems and rack fills sturdy. Great price and look forward to using the rack. Two thumbs up!! 645121

This bike rack is sturdy and easy to use. I didn't even need an adapter for the womans bike. I've been searching and I ended up with this Rola 3 bike rack. I liked the style and features you get for the price compared to the higher end bike racks. Thanks Rola for providing great quality for a nice price. 553271



- 59403
by:

Lots of good useful features. Good quality. I have a normal hard tail mens mountain bike and I have to use an adapter bar with it. I expected to need one for my wife's bike but needing it for both really increased the overall price. Seems like it would be hard to fit a third bike on it. The lock can be removed with one Phillips head screw. Not very secure. 553039

Excellent product with a lot of features that more expensive brands don’t have. The only negative is the bike lock cable is difficult to pull out. The hole needs to be a little bigger. Some of the cable sheathing has already been stripped off. Other than that I look forward to many years of reliable use. 516247

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13095 Opening Sit Flush with Bumper on 1991 Nissan Pathfinder
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C13095, is custom designed for your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder and uses existing holes in the vehicle frame for the rear mounting holes on the hitch. These holes must be used for installation so there isn't any flexibility when it comes to mounting location for the hitch. In order to determine where the hitch opening will sit in comparison to the bumper on your Pathfinder, you will just need to measure 3-3/4 inches from the existing rear mounting holes...

We have actually installed this particular hitch on the 2018 CR-V (video attached) so we know the bumper clearances provided are compatible with the hitch pin hole to rack dimensions on this carrier.

    You have several options for bike carriers on your 2010 Toyota RAV4, spare-tire-mount racks like the Thule Spare Me # TH963PRO which limit you to 2-bikes (due to weight restrictions for the tire mount) or hitch mount racks which require a hitch receiver like # C13149, shown in the linked installation video. For three or more bikes you'll need to go the hitch route. Your RAV4 could have either a 1-1/4-inch or 2-inch hitch on it (please see the linked article) so you'll want to confirm...

  • Taking Out Side to Side Wobble when Using a Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
    All you will need is an anti-rattle device for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. Take a look at anti-rattle device # 93347. Basically, it wedges itself between the bike rack shank and the receiver opening to take out the play between the two. If you are going to use a strap you can use # 18050. Using just one would be best because it could pull the rack to one side and hold it there.

    Between the two bike racks you referenced the Thule Hitching Post part # TH934XTR would be the better rack as long as you have a 2 inch hitch. If you check out the test course video I attached you will see that it handles bumps quite well without much movement at all. Since you don't plan on carrying 4 bikes with this rack I would recommend you pull off a set of the frame cradles. This will give the bikes extra space to prevent bumping together, and you'll have a spare set of cradles and...

    We haven't had the chance to test fit the Rola TX-103 # 59403 on a 2007 Toyota RAV4 but you can take a measurement to determine if it will fit. Measure from the center of the trailer hitch pin hole out to the furthest point on the spare tire. For the Rola to fit you need more 10 inches of clearance if you have a 2 inch trailer receiver or 10-3/4 inches if it's a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The rack weighs a little over 30 pounds.

  • Comparing Velcro/Hook and Loop Straps to Rubber Straps on a Bike Rack and 3-Bike Rack Recommendation
    First, Velcro or hook and loop as they are called if not the Velcro brand, are considered less superior to other types of straps including rubber. They are not as durable as rubber. The thing with rubber straps though is that they can get over-stretched. That happens because people think the straps have to be as tight as possible but they don't. They just have to be snug. Rubber is also better at protecting the bike frames. Hook and loop straps will still work fine in the rain. They...

You would have to take off the whole spare tire cover so all that is left is the spare tire and then you could mount this rack.

This is the preferred method as there would be no contact with any painted surfaces of your vehicle and it would open you up to other options in the future like towing or a cargo carrier.

This measurement was taken with a 2000 CR-V, but a word of caution is to make sure you do not have an oversized tire on the back that could affect the clearance you need. I have attached a link...

  • Recommend a Hitch and Hitch Mounted Bike Rack That Allows Hatchback Access For 2008 Honda CR-V
    For a trailer hitch for your 2008 Honda CR-V, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75547, as it is a Class III Hitch with a 2 inch receiver which is compatible with most hitch mounted bike racks and the hitch offers a higher tongue weight capacity than other custom fit hitches for your CR-V. For a hitch mounted bike rack, I recommend the Rola TX-103 3 Bike Carrier, part # 59403. This bike rack will carry 3 bicycles and has a tilting feature that allows you to access...

  • Recommended Locking Pin and Anti-Rattle for Rola TX-103 Bike Carrier
    The Rola TX-103 3-Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # 59403 has a threaded pin on the the 2 inch shank but not on the 1-1/4 inch shank. This will provide you with a connection to the hitch but will not give you the anti-rattle. I recommend using the hitch lock # e98879 and then using an anti-rattle device like the Quiet Hitch # RM-061-125.

  • Comparing Spare Tire-Mount and Hitch-Mount Bike Carriers for 2006 Jeep Liberty
    Between a hitch-mount rack and a spare tire-mount rack I will always recommend the hitch rack since this type of bike carrier does not place any weight burden on the car's rear hatch. Instead, a hitch rack uses the vehicle's strongest part - its frame - to handle the weight of the loaded bike rack. Your 2006 Jeep Liberty can be fitted with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch or a higher capacity 2-inch Class III type. All available options are shown on the linked page. Some bike racks...

    You are correct the instructions for the Rola TX-103 3 Bike Carrier, item # 59403, see link, state that the bikes should not exceed 80 lbs.
