It's a platform style rack, which means your bike sits in these two cradles and up here at the top there is a hook that puts down pressure on your frame to secure the bike in place. As you can see here, we've got our e-bike loaded up. It's also going to work with fat tire bikes up to five inches wide, and just about any other bike you can try and fit in there.Unlike many platform style racks is able to tilt away from your Sierra giving you access to your tailgate. It can do that even with bikes loaded.



RockyMounts Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2019 GMC Sierra 1500

Hey there. Sierra owners. Today on your 2019 GMC Sierra, we're going to bring you some real mountain synergy when we test fit the RockyMounts WestSlope. The WestSlope is a two bike platform style rack with a gradual slope to it here at the back, which is great because it's going to give you plenty of ground clearance at the rear of your Sierra. Like most platform style racks, secures your tires in cradles, and we have a hook here on our front tire that helps put down pressure into that front cradle securing our bike. While in the rear, we have a ratcheting style strap that keeps that rear tire mobilized.The great thing about having a bike rack on the rear of your Sierra, is it frees up your truck bed for more items when you're out on your adventure.

That means it holds your bike in place here at the wheels, and up at the top we have a frame hook that puts down pressure on the bike, keeping it secure into those cradles.A cool thing about this rack unlike some others, is its ability to tilt away from your Sierra even with bikes loaded. So even if you've got two ebikes on here, you're able to pull that pin down at the base, lift up slightly and pull out this top knob. That's going to tilt the bike away, giving you a little extra space here to get into your tailgate.

Hey there, Sierra owners. Today on our 2019 GMC Sierra, we'll be test fitting the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Two Bike platform style rack.Having a bike rack on the rear of your Sierra can actually help you free up space in your bed for those adventures you're going on. Also, with nicer bikes like carbon fiber bikes, people don't always want them just rattling around in the truck bed, this is a great way to secure your bikes and get them where you're going. Platform racks secure your bikes at the tires, and there is a cradle up top that puts down pressure on the bike, keeping it in those cradles.

There's a pin down here we can pull out, and once we've loosened that pin, then we can pull out on the knob, and that's going to let the bike tilt away.

If you wish at your own risk you can still open in up and reach in and get whatever you might need, it's not really that hard. It just depends on how much you want to risk.To tilt it back up just grab ahold of the bike rack, and then tilt it up, until you hear it latch.

But do that at your own risk.To tilt it back up, just grab ahold of these two arms on the bike rack and tilt up, til you hear that audible latch.We have four different points where our bike is secured.
