Video Transcript for RockyMounts TomaHawk Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes Review

Today we are going to be reviewing the Rocky Mount's Tomahawk bike rack for Fat Bikes, part #RKY1222. The Tomahawk bike rack allows you to carry one Fat Tire bike on the roof of your vehicle with no bike frame contact and no wheel removal. The sliding ratcheting straps secure your front and rear tire to your bike rack and will accommodate for different wheel bases. The 59 1/2 inch tray accommodates different wheel sizes and includes two strap extensions to accommodate Fat Tire bikes up to 5 inches wide. The ratcheting padded hook and metal wheel brace is 00:00:47 secure your bike by the front tire and they both fold down when not in use. The Tomahawk comes with universal mounting hardware which will allow for a flush fit on most of your roof rack cross bars, like your round, square, arrow, and most of your factory cross bars. The weight capacity for your bike rack on 00:01:07 market bars is 45 pounds, and on factory cross bars is 35 pounds.

The bike rack is made out of a light weight corrosion resistant aluminum with a black powder coat finish, so it is going to resist rust and corrosion. It is also stream lined with a low profile design which is going to minimize wind noise. The dimensions of the rack are 59 1/2 inches long by 12 inches wide, by 3 inches tall, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we have gone over some features we will show you how to get it installed. We are first going to place our bike rack up here and adjust the brackets so they sit where we need them to. With those in place we will start to tighten down each bracket, we will start with the front and do the same with the back.

Now that we have got it installed we will place our cap on and secure it in place. So now that we have got our bike rack installed we will get it ready to receive our bike. We are first going to undo both of our straps, we can now lift up our wheel brace and our wheel hook. Now we can load up our bike, I am going to get an extra set of hands to help me with this. Now whenever we connect our straps we want to make sure that those straps are between the spokes so we don't damage the spokes there. And that is going to complete our review of the Rocky Mount's Tomahawk roof bike rack for Fat Bikes, part # RKY1222..

Good sturdy unit. Bought two. Held my 29er and road bike great for a 4-hour haul. Easy to install and put together. Don't even know it's on the roof since it makes no noticeable noise at any speed. (Hint) I bought a collapsible step stool in case I needed help from a shorter person to put the bike up on the roof. So far no help needed since the "v" helps keep the bike in place as the straps are buckled. Installed on a 2018 Kia Sorento. 530186

This rack is great. I've traveled about 2,500 miles with the bike loaded up and it has been rock solid. Well designed. I bring a little folding step ladder with me that I use to load/unload the bike. When I'm not using the rack, it lays down nicely and you never even know it's up there. Highly recommended product. 544319

Pros: functions well, easy to use, holds a fat bike, great value. Cons: I had to loosen the pressure on the arm, it was a bit too hard to move. The rack is noisy in a couple of ways. The "offset" rear mount allows the rack to flex sideways an it rattles against the cross bar, I stuffed some strips from an old tube underneath to quiet it. The handle is somewhat loose on the upright bar, so it allows some rocking when loaded, which causes clunking. Double straps for fat tires is a little fussy, but it works and is simple. This in minor, but the rack sticks out way far in front of the forward crossbar, it almost looks like it's on backwards. 582949

This was just what I needed. First of all this bike rack is not mounted on an auto roof rack. I have a motor home and us a swivel wheel trailer to carry a motorcycle; the platform is 5 ft long and 8 ft wide I needed some way to also carry a Mongoose fat bike, the method of carry had to be stable, so as not to crash in to the motorcycle and secure so as not to be stolen, but easy for me to use the bike any time I wanted to. This bike rack filled the bill just right. It is strong, holds the fat bike perfectly and secure from theft, and I can get the bike off and on with little effort. The lock cores work great and are worth the extra cash. Love this thing and recommend it to anyone. Sorry but I have no way to add pictures. 252743

Good rack with solid hold for mountain and road bikes. Haven't tried with fat bikes yet. Locking operation is quick. Mounting and dismounting takes more time than I'd like, but for the price the Tomahawk is hard to beat. 559373

Exactly what I needed for transporting my Fat Bike, thought I would need to install a hitch mount and buy a new bike carrier but after seeing the product in use vía etrailer’s on line video I was ready to take a chance and glad I did, works great on my Thule roof rack cross bars, allowing for secure transport. An additional plus was the quick delivery and the great customer service - thank you! 470316

Comments

The rack still works great. I use it several times a week and it is holding up very well. Functioning like new. Very satisfied. I use it for both my fat bike and my 29” full suspension trail bike with 2.35” tires. All I have to do to convert is addremove the strap extensions.

Do you have a question about this Roof Bike Rack?


  • Roof Mount Bike Racks that Hold Fat Bikes and Fit Rola Roof Rack 59768 on a 2016 Ford Fiesta
  • Yes, there are several roof bike racks that will fit Rola roof rack # 59768 for the 2016 Ford Fiesta 5-door hatchback. First we have the Rhino-Rack Hybrid rack # RRRBC050-FB. It will accept tires up to 5 inches wide and was basically designed for fat bikes. I have linked a video review of this bike rack for you. Another option is the RockyMounts BrassKnuckles for fat bikes # RKY1201-FB. It also accepts bike tires up to 5 inches wide. I have linked a video for it as well. RockyMounts...

  • The RockyMounts TomaHawk Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes - Wheel Mount - Clamp On - Aluminum # RKY1222 will absolutely fit the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Blade Crossbars like # RRVA118B-2 that are 3-1/8" wide x 1-3/16" tall. I do recommend using the lock cores # RKY0332 to secure your bike to the carrier and your carrier to the crossbars.

  • I can only confirm that Fat Tire Adapter Kit # TH5981 fits the Thule ProRide bike rack 598003. I wish I had better news for you. There are some roof mount bike racks that are designed for fat bike use such: RockyMounts TomaHawk # RKY1222 RockyMounts BrassKuckles # RKY1201-FB Rhino-Rack Hybrid for Fat Bikes # RRRBC050-FB Swagman Race Ready # S64705 I have linked videos below of some of these racks.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2015 Lexus IS 250 for a Bike Rack and Light Trailer
  • I recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver, part # 24923, for your 2015 Lexus IS 250. It's confirmed to fit both the sedan or convertible models. The hitch is a Class I, 1-1/4 inch receiver so you need to make sure the bike rack you use fits the Class I. The bike rack I recommend is the very popular Thule T2, part # TH9045. The T2 is a platfrom rack that carries up to 2 bikes at 50 pounds each. it can be folded up out of the way when you're not using it as well as tilted away...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes on a 2012 Toyota Prius v
  • Yes, a Class I trailer hitch receiver for your 2012 Toyota Prius v, like the Draw-Tite # 24847 is only rated to carry up to 2 bikes. This is because the distance a 4-bike rack extends from the vehicle causes too much stress on the vehicle from the movement of the rack. To carry 4 bikes on your Prius v you'll need to get a little creative such as using a hitch mounted rack like the BikeWing # B01311 on the back of the vehicle along with a roof rack on top. You'll need a roof rack...

  • Carrying 6 Bikes on a 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • There's a couple ways to do this, but the first thing you'll want to verify is your vehicle's towing capacity and roof capacity with your manufacturer to make sure you don't exceed your capacity. A quick tip on this setup is that the two 16 inch bikes are likely best carried in the rear cargo area of the vehicle, as there's only a few hitch racks that can carry them. Either way, you'll need to attach a hitch to get the best capacity out of your vehicle. I recommend using the Draw-Tite...

  • Will RockyMounts TomaHawk Carry a Standard Size Mountain Bike

It includes two wheel strap extensions to fit fat tire bikes up to 5 inches wide. If you'd like to add some security to the TomaHawk you can use RockyMounts Lock Cores # RKY0332 to lock the carrier to the roof rack and the bike to the carrier.

  • Carrying 4 Bikes on a 2017 Toyota Prius Prime
  • I may have a solution for you. However, you aren't able to use the Yakima DoubleDown Ace, part # Y02451, on your 2017 Toyota Prius Prime. The hitch receivers for your vehicle, like the Draw-Tite # 24966, are Class I receivers and the DoubleDown Ace fits Class II and Class III receivers. In addition to that a Class I hitch is only able to carry up to 2 bikes. Instead to carry 4 bikes on your car I recommend using a hitch mount bike rack like the Swagman Titan, part # S63400, to carry...

  • Cost-Effective Recommendations to Carry 1 Kayak and 2 Bikes with a 2017 Subaru Impreza Sedan
  • I checked out the OEM roof rack for your 2017 Subaru Impreza that you inquired about and it doesn't quite look like any of the roof racks that we have to offer. Typically OEM roof racks will get the job done, but going with a brand like Thule or Yakima will last much longer due to the quality of the work. With that being said, the most cost effective roof rack that we currently have to offer for your Impreza is the Inno square bar roof rack which consists of the Crossbars # INB127, Inno...

  • Roof Rack and Bike Racks for 2009 Volkswagen Jetta
  • You've got a lot of great options, and of them, I recommend using a square bar kit and frame mount racks for the best value and functionality of your new roof rack system. First, you'll want to verify your vehicle's roof capacity prior to installing. The capacity will include the weight of the racks plus roof rack plus the bikes. For the roof rack, I recommend the Rhino Rack Square kit, consisting of: # RREB126B # RRRLKVA # RREB-FK1 # DK055 This installs a standard, square...

  • Will the RockyMounts TomaHawk Work with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System
  • Yes, you can use a different brand of bike rack like the RockyMounts TomaHawk Roof Bike Rack part # RKY1222 or the Thule SideArm 594XT with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System. The reason for this is because the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System uses a standard 3-1/8" wide x 1-3/16" tall crossbar that will be compatible with pretty much any rooftop accessory that works with aero crossbars whether that be from Yakima, Rola, or in this case RockyMounts and Thule.

  • Recommended Way to Carry 3 Bikes on a 2006 Scion xB with a Bare Roof
  • Like you said you aren't able to carry 3 bikes on a hitch mounted bike rack with your 2006 Scion xB because you need at least a Class II hitch and only Class I hitches are available for your vehicle. So that leaves either the roof or a trunk mount carrier. If you want to add a roof rack you can use the Rhino-Rack system, parts # RREB137B, RRRLKVA, RREB-FK1, and # DK138. Then add 3 bike racks like the TomaHawk, part # RKY1222. However, I recommend a trunk mount rack. It's a lot...

  • Solution for Mounting Roof Bike Rack on Sheet Metal Roof
  • I wouldn't say what you are trying to do is impossible, but it's not recommended for sure. The mounting studs would be too small to spread the weight of the rack through so it would most likely bend the sheet metal. You'd be better off installing the roof rack part # S80510 first on the sheet metal then installing the part # RKY1222.

  • How to Carry 3 Bikes on a 2004 Mercedes-Benz e320 Wagon
  • Unfortunately, we don't have any trunk mount racks confirmed to fit the wagon model of the 2004 Mercedes-Benz e320. The next best option is to add a roof rack to car and carry them on the roof. There's only one trailer hitch receiver to choose from that fits and it's a Class I hitch, part # C11820, which isn't rated to carry more than two bikes. The roof rack system I recommend consists of the Yakima CoreBars, part # Y00421, and TimberLine Towers, part # Y00147. Then add three...

  • Carrying Bikes on a 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited
  • The best bike rack is the one that's best for you. A lot of which is determined by how many and what kind of bikes you're going to be carrying. As well as how often you're going to be hauling the bikes. Overall, in my opinion, a hitch mount bike rack is the best way to go; however if you need to carry more than two bikes it isn't going to work for you because the only hitches that are designed for your 2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid are Class I receivers which are only able to carry up...

  • Maximum Number of Bikes on a 2013 Toyota RAV4 with Roof Racks
  • This depends largely on the weight of your roof rack and bikes. The total weight of the bikes plus the racks plus the roof rack system is going to determine the actual number of bikes you can carry. According to my research, the 2013 Toyota RAV4 has a rated roof capacity of 101.2lbs. You should always confirm this number before employing the roof rack on your vehicle by checking in your owner's manual. Each of the Rocky Mountain TomaHawk Roof Bike Rack, part # RKY1222 weighs 18lbs....

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2018 Toyota Prius
  • Since the only trailer hitches that fit your 2018 Toyota Prius are Class I hitches your options for carrying bikes are either a trunk mount rack or a on the roof. Class I hitches are limited to only 2 bikes. If you prefer the trunk then I recommend the Yakima FullBack, part # Y02633. It can handle up to 3 bikes weighing 30 pounds each. The FullBack includes an interlocking HUB that lets you adjust the base to the Prius. There's also setting that are specific to the vehicle to help...

  • Carrying Bikes with a Rooftop Cargo Basket
  • The Rola roof mounted cargo basket, part # 59504, that you referenced isn't designed to carry bikes. It's designed to be mounted onto existing crossbars so you can carry other cargo on the roof. If your vehicle has crossbars and all you want to carry is bikes then you can use a rooftop bike carrier like the RockyMounts TomaHawk, part # RKY1222. If you do want a roof basket that carries bikes Kuat offers the Vagabond X, part # VX201. It includes two built-in fork mounts for bikes...

Not only would it void the warranty but it may damage the rack and which could lead to it not properly securing your bikes. Instead, I recommend checking out the Topline Bike Carrier # UG2500-1 because it will carry your fat tire bike with the wheels on, and easily clamps to most truck bed side rails.

  • Carrying Bikes on a 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport

It only fits if you don't have the 5+2 in your vehicle and will work with your bike carrier as long as it fits a 2 inch hitch. The 5+2 seating is basically a third row of two seats that can be layed flat in the rear cargo area. If your Rover does have the 5+2 seating the only available option we currently have to carry bikes on your Land Rover is to add a roof rack with bike carriers on...

It looks like your bike is actually too big for this application and the Yakima ForkChop # Y02117 is prying on the Rola Sport GTX Series Roof Rack # 59967 which is causing your mounting issues. For your bike to fit properly on the ForkChop you need to make sure that the wheelbase of your bike is within (plus or minus) 10" of your crossbar spread.
