RockyMounts 10970 LoBall Fork Mount Bike Rack Track Mounted Kit View

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 Track Mounted Lockable Skewer

The skewer is equipped with a handle that both tightens the system and acts as a cam lever when flipped 90 degrees. The turning the handle will adjust the rack to allow more or less open space to accommodate the front fork. Pushing the handle close engages a cam lever type effect and maximizes the grip the rack has on the bike's front fork.

The handle has a nice ergonomic grip that is comfortable to the touch and allows you to engage the quick-release skewer with confidence. The lever handle is made from UV-resistant nylon to minimize fading and cracking from prolonged exposure to sunlight.

RockyMounts LoBall Fork Mount Bike Rack Skewer 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

Rail System Compatible

As earlier mentioned this system is designed to be compatible with your vehicle's slotted track system making it a simple process to incorporate it into your truck's rail system. Simply remove the skewer from the main body and install the included bolts and nuts into the track plate.

Proceed to slide the rack onto the track into the desired position for your application. Tighten the bolts with the included Torx key to ensure a secure hold and reattach the skewer.

Secure your bikes front fork into the openings on either side of the main body and then adjust the tightness to ensure a secure fit. Turn the handle to adjust the hold on the bike fork, closing the handle will engage a cam lever tightening for final adjustments. If too tight or too loose open the handle and re-adjust until the handle secures with tension.

I had made back rail for my tundra. Bike rack went on smoothly. No problems. I like one key opens all three of them. Thanks 503803

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.

The mounts bolted right in, are solid and work perfectly! 334050

The mounts are still working well, i did break one of the locking assemblies but i have to overtighten to hold the adapters shown in the pictures. Otherwise a good product!

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

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

Toyota Tacoma

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

Ordered three of the bike racks and they worked perfectly. They were simple to install on the factory Toyota Tundra rails. The three bikes stayed in place and were very secure. 800487

Website and videos are excellent! The product itself is well made and easy to install. My bikes will be in much better shape with these unobtrusive rail mounts. 795705

2020 Toyota Tacoma

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

I love this product. It mounts very easily and works perfectly on my quick release bicycle. I can't say it is 100% thief proof but close. 776024

2019 Honda Ridgeline

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

Great product 562696

- RKY1097

This Rocky Mount lock is easy to defeat and fails to lock sometimes but the mount looks nice and secures the bike well. Avoid the locking model and get the basic mount, then loop a reliable cable-lock through it and your bike when necessary. 562464

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
