Video Transcript for RockyMounts LoBall Truck Bed Bike Rack Review - 2018 Toyota Tacoma

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Toyota Tacoma, we're gonna be test-fitting the Rocky Mounts low ball bike rack for truck bed factory track systems, part number RKY1097. The Rocky Mounts low ball allows you to carry up to one or a few bikes in the bed of your Tacoma because it utilizes the track system on the inside to attach it. It simply clamps into place and into the channels here and tightens down with two screws, and does come with a tool to tighten those down. It tightens into place with our skewer mount here, so basically what this does is it works with quick-release wheels, but it also has a lock on the end of it, so once you attach it then it is secure to our mount here. However, it does have enough space in between here to place a cable lock through as well, which you can purchase on etrailer.com.While it does work with quick-release skewers, there is an adapter to use this with through axles, which you can find on etrailer.com as well. Another bonus about this bike rack is the fact that you can move it along the track at any point as long as the bike still fits, so it does have some maneuverability, and it also provides enough space for you to store other items while you're traveling.

When comparing this to other similar style bike racks, one that comes up is gonna be the Swagman impact bike rack. Like the low ball, they both mount inside the track system of your Tacoma. However, with the Swagman impact, there are a few differences. For one thing, it does work with the quick-release skewer, like our low ball. However, it also comes with the attachments to be able to use this with through axle forks as well, which is a little bit more of an upgrade from the low ball.Now that we've gone over some of the features of the bike rack, let's go ahead and show you how it installs.

It's a very simple and easy install. You have the actual mount here with our two metal brackets and screws, which are gonna slide in to our deck rail system. And of course we have the skewer, which at the moment is unscrewed. So we'll first take our mount portion and install it into our deck rails. We'll start off by removing the end cap here, which just pushes in and slides right out.

Now we'll take our mount and we'll slide it into the track like so. Now with this done, we can reinstall our end cap like so. So we'll take our included tool, insert it into the bolt, and tighten it down. With that tightened down, our mount's not going anywhere, we can take our skewer mount here, place it in, screw it together, and then we can grab our bike and install it into our truck bed.Set the forks down onto our skewer mount, tighten it up until it's nice and snug and not gonna go anywhere. And then we can lock it up and we're ready to go.

And there you have it for the Rocky Mounts low ball bike rack for truck bed factory track systems on our 2018 Toyota Tacoma.

Comments

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.

I attached the RKY1097 immediately after receiving it in the mail and set one of my bikes on it to see how it fit. As of yet I have not had time to actually transport the bike using the devise. I am thinking of buying another to transport two bikes on my pickup truck. 557928

So far, so good! The RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack was delivered right on time. I was informed of the delivery date and the communication from the company has been excellent. It is obvious that they care about excellent customer service. The rack was packed well and came with easy to understand directions. There are also good installation videos available online. It was a breeze to install in my 2008 Toyota Tacoma! I connected the bike and it is secure. I like the locking mechanism that came with two keys. So far, I am very pleased with this rack! The lifetime warranty is a comfort, too. 518171


Comments

Absolutely LOVE my bike rack after one year. It holds my racing bike securely by the front fork. Its quick and easy to attach and remove my bike. The lock works well, too. It was super-easy to install on the front rail of my Toyota Tacomas truck bed. Its an awesome little rack!

This product is awesome!!! The perfect way to carry bikes in a truck. Slides in the railing system inside the bed of my Toyota Tundra perfectly. Takes two minutes to install and holds the bike fork very snugly AND you can lock the bike securely once loaded. I have one on each side for when my wife goes, you could easily put four-six of these in a truck bed. Gave it five stars cause ten wasn't an option! 473459

Perfect solution to my road bike carrier needs. Fits my 2010 Tacoma rails like glove, and I didn’t have to drill or spend $300-$500 on a complex rack system. Three times I’ve been asked by strangers if they can take a look at the rig and see what I’m using. 451543

This is very great tool for securing a single bike to a Toyota Tacoma bed. Since I have the quad cab and I don't like having the tail bed down it secures really well with the tie down rails of the truck. Once its secured my bike won't budge even driving some unimproved roads. 433049

I bought (2) of these for my 2016 Tacoma and they are perfect! I spent many hours trying to devise a way to create what this already has in terms of bike transport in the short 5' bed of a Tacoma (I use it to place across the width of the bed, not the length toward the tailgate) This works with the built in rail/track system already in my bed. Honestly, I can't say enough about this product. Super easy to install, and super easy to use with the bikes. 429506

The mount is exactly as described. I have a 2014 Tundra and it installed in roughly 10 minutes. As seen in another review, I also used LocTite and tamper-proof Torx head bolts to add more security but this was only a few dollars. The ride hight and ease of use is fantastic. If my vehicle choice ever changes, the RockyMount will be my first stop for a bike mount. Absolutely fantastic product quality and service. 302505

I spent several weeks looking for a specific device that would tie into my Tacoma tie-down system in the bed of my truck. I knew exactly what I was looking for and it did not seem to exist, to the point where I was considering making something myself. One last look brought me to the etrailer site, where I found exactly what I was I was looking for. This RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack system keeps my road bike firmly mounted in the back of my truck whatever the road conditions. To top it off, the bike rack was available for a lower price than I would have been able to put something together myself and it certainly looks better than anything I could have thrown together. Excellent product. 263092

Awesome product! I've been using Thule roof racks on my old Mazda 3 hatch for years and loved the security it provided when transporting my bikes. Now that I have a Nissan Frontier, I was looking for that same security in the bed of the truck. This is exactly what I needed! This kit utilizes the utilitrack system installed in the bed. It took 5 minutes to install. Great product. HIGHLY recommend. 251548

Product installed super easy. Looks to be very sturdy. I hooked up my bike and gave it a shake white no budging. I am sure I will get my monies worth. The reason I did not give it a perfect rating is there were no keys in the box, other than that it is awesome. 240226

Ask the Experts about this RockyMounts Truck Bed Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Truck Bed Bike Rack?


  • Part to Secure Bike Rear Wheel When Transported on Fork-Mount Carrier Like RKY1097
  • It sounds like you are using a fork-mount bike carrier like the RockyMounts LoBall # RKY1097 and you want a method to secure the rear tire at the same time. We do not have any such item but you have certainly pointed to a need in the market! One idea I can offer is to use a replacement wheel holder from another bike carrier, such as # 8523598001, # HRSPRWHR-F-HD or # 7521682001. Naturally you would have to use some of your own ingenuity for the installation. All such items are displayed...

  • Availability of Bolt-On Bike Carriers for Trailer Decking
  • What a good question! Erickson offers no such item as an e-track-compatible fork-mount bike holder like # RKY1097 but this is a really good thought. I called Erickson to confirm they offer no such item and I passed along your creative idea. On the page I linked for you are displayed the bolt-on fork-mount carriers we do offer. The bargain of the group is the Hollywood Racks Truck Bed Bike Carrier # HRT970. This bolts on to a trailer deck or other suitable mounting surface to allow...

  • Option For Carrying Kayak Or Surfboard In Truck Bed

If you are not installing a roof rack to carry the kayak or surfboard we do have a way to carry them in the bed of your truck. We carry tailgate pads like part # SR26457 for full-size and part # S64761 for mid-size trucks. These are pads that are attached to the tailgate and you then carry the board or kayak as shown in...

  • If you have bikes that are too long to face sideways in the bed of your truck and only have rails that are on either side of the bed there really isn't a way to utilize the rail and orientate your bike the way it needs to be to fit your truck bed. Normally I'd recommend a LoBall part # RKY1097 as it is locking and fits the channel of your 2017 Toyota Tacoma but your bike won't fit sideways. Realistically you would have to go with something like the Swagman Pick Truck Bed Rack part...

  • In order to ensure that the locks are keyed-alike on the RockyMounts Bed Rail Bike Carrier, # RKY1097, RockyMounts offers replacement Lock Cores, # RKY0332, which come in a pack of two. You would simply remove the original lock cores and install the replacement, keyed-alike cores.

However, the Thule Insta-Gater # TH501 will fit in your truck bed, and it is confirmed by Thule to fit your truck.

For instance, the Extang BlackMax # EX2840 will work perfectly with this combination. The tonneau connects to the factory track system, so the clamp locations are the only spots along that track that won't work, but the tonneau will sit well above the bike rack so there is not interference at any other point.

Typical bikes weigh in the range of 35-lbs each. You may also want to consider that loading up mountain bikes after a day's riding could mean a lot of dirt on the cover.

  • The RockyMounts LoBall part # RKY1095 that you referenced doesn't come with mounting hardware but part # RKY1097 does come with mounting hardware that will fit the Utili-Track on your 2017 Nissan Frontier. I have attached a picture of this as well as a video of us installing it on a 2018 Nissan Frontier that you can reference. The part # RKY1097 is also upgraded with bike and rack locks for extra security.

  • Is There a Max Bike Size When Using the RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack # RKY1097
  • The RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack # RKY1097 doesn't have a specific max bike length that it will work with because your truck bed will be supporting the weight. As long as your bike can sit sideways then it will work great for you! Your bike does need to have a 9mm axle for it to be compatible with this bike rack. If you would like to add a lock to your bike then I also recommend using the Cable Lock # CAB-10 to help prevent theft. We actually have a video showing this exact thing...

  • RockyMount Bike Mount For Quick Release Wheels on Nissan Frontier
  • I did speak with my contact at RockyMount and he said the LoBall Truck Bed Rail Bike Carrier, part # RKY1097, has a quick-release function that allows for rapid loading or unloading of bikes, but it will work ONLY on bikes with a quick release front wheels. I have included a link to a video review of this truck bike rack for you to check out. I have also linked you to a truck bed bike rack FAQ article that you might find helpful.

  • Is it Possible to get RockyMounts Clutch SD Truck Bed Rail Bike Carriers Keyed Alike
  • Most likely if you purchased 3 RockyMounts LoBall Bike Racks # RKY1097 you would get three different lock cylinders that would require different keys. What you could do is get RockyMounts Replacement Lock set # RKY0334. This is a replacement key set that comes with four matching lock cylinders that you could replace with the ones in the # RKY011 that you plan on purchasing and you would be good to go.

  • Will RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack for Truck Bed Track Systems Work For Road And Mountain Bikes
  • I called my contact at RockyMounts and they told me the LoBall Bike Rack for Truck Bed Factory Track Systems, part # RKY1097 should work just fine for road bikes as well as mountain bikes. This system will work with bikes that have a stancdard 9 mm fork mount and if it has a quick-release on the wheel. This rack comes with a built-in lock to help secure your bike.

  • Truck Bed Mounted Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2006 Toyota Tundra
  • The cargo management rails that the RockyMounts LoBall Fork Mount Rack part # RKY1097 is designed to fit would have been a dealer option for your 2006 Toyota Tundra. The only place you would be able to get that rail system would be a Toyota dealer. Another option you would have would be a rack like the Yakima BikerBar Truck Bed Mounted 2 Bike Carrier # Y01143 that does not require the cargo management rails. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Chevy Silverado
  • The RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack # RKY1097 that you referenced is designed to fit the factory track systems that are on several (but not all) trucks from the factory. If you truck has the slotted track system that runs down the bed rails that is designed for tie-down attachment points this rack would work well for you. Since it sounds like you don't have that rail system on your 2009 Chevy Silverado you instead would want the Yakima Locking BedHead Single Bike Truck Bed Mounted Rack...

  • Will RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack work with a Track Installed on the Bed Rails of a Ford F-150
  • I spoke to my contact at Thule and she is not aware of any truck bed track system that would be on your Ford F-150 unless it was a ladder rack, so it's hard for me to give you a simple yes or no to whether or not the RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack Truck Bed Rail Bike Carrier # RKY1097 would fit in your track. However, I measured the square pieces of the # RKY1097 that are designed to slide into a track. They measure 1-3/8 inches by 7/8 of an inch. If those dimensions are compatible with...

  • Bike Rack Solution for Bed of 2017 Ram 1500 with Ram Boxes
  • We have truck bed bike racks that fit your 2017 Ram 1500 with the Ram Boxes like the Thule Insta-Gater part # TH501 which uses anchors to attach to a closed tailgate. To lock it you'd need to add the lock setup # TH450200 which locks the bikes to the rack. As long as your tailgate is lockable it would lock the rack to the vehicle.
