RockyMounts 10960 LoBall Fork Mount Bike Rack with Keys

Note: To be compatible with this rack bikes must be equipped with a quick release front wheel and standard 9-mm x 100-mm skewer.


Quick Release Function with Lockable Skewer

An easy to grip 9-mm quick-release skewer allows you to quickly engage or disengage your bike's front fork. It is constructed of chromoly-wrapped stainless steel, for exceptional strength and corrosion resistance. This ensures long lasting performance and that your bike will stay securely positioned when the skewer is engaged against the front fork.


RockyMounts LoBall Fork Mount Bike Rack Lockable Skewer

The skewer has a thumb nut and cam lever located on either end to assist in creating a perfect fit for your bike. The thumb nut can be adjusted to allow more or less open space to accommodate the front fork. The lever acts as a cam tightening system and will tighten upon closing for final adjustments.


Both of these features have a nice ergonomic grip that is comfortable to the touch and allows you to engage the quick-release handle with confidence. The lever handle and thumb nut are made from UV-resistant nylon to minimize fading and cracking from prolonged exposure to sunlight.


RockyMounts LoBall Fork Mount Bike Rack Holding Lock Core

The Skewer on this LoBall rack features a built-in lock core for increased security. Utilize one of the 2 included keys to lock the skewer into position to help deter theft and lock in the hold on the bikes front fork. When you are ready to disengage the system simply unlock the skewer to free the thumb nut and lever for easy loosening of grip.


Durable Long Lasting Construction

RockyMounts LoBall Fork Mount Base Only Image

The LoBall was built to provide long lasting performance and security while the bike is engaged. The main construction of the rack is high grade aluminum that RockyMounts then has CNC-machined down to size. This protects against imperfections in the metal and results in a more consistent quality among finished products.


A black powder coat finish is applied at the end of the process to give the rack a durable protective finish against corrosion and wear.


RockyMounts LoBall Fork Mount Bike Rack Cable Lock Opening

You will also notice a large center opening that runs through the base. This enables you to easily feed a cable lock (sold separately) through the rack when securing your bike providing a higher level of security and theft deterrence


Simple and Versatile Bolt Down Installation

As mentioned the RockyMounts LoBall is able to easily accommodate a range of mounting applications for securing your bike. One of the reasons for this is its compact base design which runs about 4-7/8" long and 1-5/8" wide. It has a height of about 2-3/4" and features two mount holes for securing it into position.


The mounting holes on the base of the rack are 4-3/16" from center hole to center hole and can be used as a template when determining the installation position. Once this position is determined, mark the position of the holes and drill them out.


To properly bolt the LoBall into position you will require 1/4" or 6-mm bolts or screws (sold separately).


RockyMounts LoBall Fork Mount Bike Rack Holding Bike Front Fork

Once the rack is bolted down you can secure your bike's front fork by loosening up the skewer. The front fork will then secure onto the skewer on either side of the main base. Take some time to adjust the fit with the thumb nut and lever on either end of the skewer. The nut can be hand tightened to ensure a snug fit on front fork and securing the lever works as a tightening cam for those final adjustments. Repeat this process as needed until your bike is tight and firmly held in position.


RockyMounts LoBall Fork Mount Bike Rack Holding Bike Secured in Truckbed

When you need to disengage the bike you will simply switch the skewer lever to the open position and the front fork should easily remove. If you find the hold to a be a little tight you can loosen the thumb nut on the the skewer until the necessary space is created.

Chevrolet Avalanche

My wife and I bought a used Trek Tandem bike and we loved everything about it except how difficult it was to haul it anywhere. We had to fold down the back seat of the Avalanche and slide the bike in just so it would fit. I saw these bike clamps that said you could mount them almost anywhere. The price was great, they LOCK, and looked sturdy so...I ordered two of them. I didn't want to put holes in my truck so I mounted them to a piece of exterior plywood, set that in my truck and mounted the bike right in there! It works great, it's sturdy, the bike travels solid and fits in the bed of the truck - locked to the clamp - with the back seat up for passengers. E-trailer delivered just as promised and I could not be happier with their service and the product! 552083

These fork mounts are not cheap so expected them to be nice stuff. And upon examination they were better than expected. Very well built. Lifetime warranty. Bought a pair of mounts and forgot to request they be keyed the same. Called 24 hrs after ordering request same keying. The order was already in shipping but the etrailer customer service person tracked down the order physically and made sure both mounts were keyed the same. Great product and even better customer service. They have definitely my future business even if they are not the ultimate lowest price in town! 501155

Excellent product. Easy to install with clear instructions. Very solid build. Bike front fork fits smoothly and tightens firmly in place. I trusted my $2800 tri bike to and from Ironman Florida from TX. Very satisfied! 107300

Hi Patrick, thanks for checking in. Yea, the bike mounts are still hanging tough. I dont use it constantly, but anytime I need to safely transport my tri bike, the bike mounts do the job. So thanks for the follow up.

Fit like a glove, it was a perfect fit to my 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Super easy installation, literally it took more time unboxing the items than installed them to my truck. Comes with all the hardware needed. In my case I bought an additional LoBall Rack to add a third bike. 830208

Review from a similar LowBall in Truck Bed Bike Racks


I bought RockyMounts Loball track fork mounts for my 14 year old truck's bed and couldn't be happier. I installed them yesterday, attached our bikes, and took them all on a twisty, bumpy test drive. Everything checked out great. The bikes held up fine with no slippage in the bed. We used to just load the bikes into the bed without mounts, enduring slippage and damage to the bikes bumping into each other and the sides of the bed. We live in the mountains and travel both to local trails and trails 50+ miles away. I like the locking feature, too, for short stops. They fit fine on an existing track under my roll-top bed cover. Rated max weight for each bike is 35 lbs. Our cross-bikes are 31 lbs, each. 826175

Review from a similar LowBall in Truck Bed Bike Racks


Well thought out design. Installation was easy - probably took less than 2 minutes. Bought two to hold bikes in the bed of my Tacoma. Once secured, bikes don't move and are held securely. Will also be easy to remove when biking season is over, and will take up little space when stored. Small size does not reduce usefulness of truck bed and eliminates need for space hogging rack. One small quibble - the locking mechanism is a bit "rough". I gently removed the machining burr on the keys with emory cloth and squirted some graphite lube into the lock mechanism. This smoothed it out - it will likely get smoother with use. 819426

Everything worked beautifully. I installed in on a front bed rail I installed on my new Tacoma 2020. Had to buy the raid from Toyota as they quit installing the front bed rail circa 2106. But that was straight forward. the Rocky Mount LoBall track rail installed with no problem and is a great product. 786866

Just to let you know I like to shop around to find the best product and this product from RockyMounts fits the bill. The rack installed flawlessly with the Loball locking fork mounts. It only took 40 minutes from box to complete the installation. Hauling three bikes is now a breeze. The best part was no drilling required. 762093

  • Recommended Fork Mount Bike Rack for 2020 Trek FX 1
    It looks like your 2020 Trek FX 1 has a 5mm fork from the manufacturer website. If you are looking for something for a roof rack, I recommend the Thule Circuit XT Roof Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Clamp On - Aluminum # TH526XT. You can add a lock using # TH450200 to secure your rack to the crossbars and lock the skewer. Another option is the Rola Canyon Rooftop Bike Carrier - Fork Mount # 59404. This rack uses security hardware that use a special included tool. There is not a bike lock...

    An over the tailgate solution like the Yakima # Y07411 GateKeeper could be a good solution for you. It's relatively inexpensive, has a 5 bike capacity, and wouldn't require removing the front wheels, which is very convenient. The padded, felt-lined carrier protects both the bikes and the truck from being scratched. If you decided to go that route, you'll want to measure the available width of your tailgate. A solution like this is your best bet because options that clamp to the bed side...

    I do have an option for you but Thule Bed-Rider 2 part # TH822XTR and Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack for Truck Beds part # S64701 will not fit into the bed with the Rambox. Both the Swagman Patrol and Bed Rider clamp to the bed rails so the ram boxes and the possibly the rail system would be damaged if you tried to use the racks. I do not recommend cutting them because that could affect the structural integrity of the rack. If you are okay with drilling into the bed, I recommend 2 of RockyMounts...
