Expert Answers about Rockymounts

  • Rockymounts Split Rail 4 or Kuat Base 2.0 with 2 Bike Add On Comparison
  • I really like the RockyMounts Split Rail # RKY1140-4 because it allows you to go from a 2 bike to either a 3 bike or 4 bike rack depending on the need. The Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B is regarded by many as the nicest bike around but it's either 2 or 4. Split rail comes with a wall rack which is super convenient too. The Split Rail has a reputation for being very easy to operate, including the raise/lower lever, and has a fantastic anti-rattle device. If I were in your situation that's...

  • How to Change the Lock Core on a RockyMounts Bike Rack
  • Like you said, there isn't a master key for the RockyMounts lock cores. In order to change out a lock core you will need access to the back of the lock. Then with a small flat blade screwdriver or a knife you can press down on the pin that holds the lock in the housing and then push it out of the front. In the video I made, it is a Rhino-Rack part but the process is the same.

  • Recommended Bike Rack to Make Loading and Unloading Bikes and Rack Easier on a 2017 Subaru Forester
  • The RockyMounts BackState # RKY10002 is a great rack that sounds like it would well for you. Except that it is a pretty heavy rack at around 70 pounds. Unfortunately, swinging racks are generally heavier, as our platform racks. When you combine it into a swinging platform rack it's likely going to be pretty heavy. Taking the weight of the bike carrier into consideration I have a few other options you may like. The Yakima FullSwing # Y02465 is also a swinging rack however it's a...

  • Will RockyMounts Split Rail Bike Rack Fit 2008 Honda Odyssey and Fold Up
  • When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 75270 on a 2008 Honda Odyssey we found that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on the rear bumper it measured 5-1/4 inches. The RockyMounts Split Rail part # RKY1140-4 will clear that folded up as it has a distance of 6-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the nearest part of the rack when folded.

  • Dimensions of the RockyMounts Backstage 2 Bike Rack
  • The shank on the RockyMounts BackStage, part # RKY10002 has the following dimensions from the center of the hitch pin hole: To the end of the shank: 2-1/2 inches To the nearest part of the carrier when folded down: 9-1/2 inches To the nearest part of the carrier when folded up: 7 inches To the furthest part of the rack when folded down: 34 inches To the furthest part of the rack when folded up: 19 inches The height of the swinging mechanism is 3-1/2 inches tall, and then 5 inches...

  • Swing-Away Style Bike Rack Options for a 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • The RockyMounts BackStage 2 Bike Platform Rack # RKY10002 fits the exact description of what you are looking for in a bike rack to carry 2 bikes on your 2001 Toyota FJ Cruiser. It has the ability to tilt, swing-away, can fold up, and comes with hitch and bike locks to deter theft of your equipment. Since trailer hitch receiver locations and spare tire width can vary you will want to measure from the center of your hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of your spare tire. If that measurement...

  • 15 mm Thru Axle Adapter Recommendation that Can Lock to Roof Bike Rack
  • This is a great question. Sounds like you are trying to determine which of the 15 mm adapters will allow you to actually lock the bike to the roof rack. Of the three you mentioned the only one that actually locks the bike to the adapter and then the adapter to the roof bike rack is the RockyMounts part # RKY1081. The rest are only adapters that allow the bike to fit the rack, but when our demo guy says the word lock he means it is clamped to the rack. Not locked like "theft-deterrent"....

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Toyota Tacoma with the Bed Rail System
  • The RockyMounts DriveShaft Track, # RKY1086, that you referenced will fit and works with standard fork mount bikes as well as 15-mm and 20-mm thru axle bikes. As well as Boost 110 axles. It is confirmed to work well with the bed rail system on your 2013 Toyota Tacoma.

  • Yes, the RockyMounts LoBall part # RKY1097 is a bike rack that coms with adapters that will fit the rack into the channel of the track system on your 2005 Nissan Titan. I attached a review video for more info on this as well.

  • Can RockyMounts BrassKnuckles Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes Also Secure Standard Bikes
  • The RockyMounts BrassKnuckles Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # RKY1201-FB referenced in your question does include an adapter that will allow you to also mount standard road or mountain bikes. You will be able to transport a bike with standard tire sizes or a fat bike with tire widths of up to 5 inches on this carrier. The ratcheting, padded hook and metal wheel brace will secure your bike by the front wheel, preventing any damage or scratching to the frame. The rack has a weight capacity...

  • Is The Rocky Mounts BackStage Swingaway Bike Rack Available?
  • Yes. We have the RockyMounts BackStage 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" - Tilting - Swinging # RKY10002. This is a very nice bike rack with a capacity of up to 60 lbs per bike with tire widths up to 5 inches. It has adjustable bike trays that slide 3 inches side to side for a great fit with bike spacing options. It comes with the bike locks and hitch lock to deter theft and give you peace of mind when traveling.

  • Carrying Fat Bike with Thule # TH594XT Sidearm Roof Mounted Bike Rack
  • Your best bet would be to go with a rack that is compatible with the fat bike adapter. The RockyMounts BrassKnuckles roof mounted bike rack # RKY1203 is compatible with fat bikes when equipped with the # RKY1240 adapter kit. I spoke with my Thule representative, and was told that Thule doesn't offer a fat bike adapter for their # TH594XT Sidearm Roof Bike Rack. Because RockyMounts is a completely different manufacturer, Thule couldn't say if the RockyMounts Adapter Kit would be compatible...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver Bike Rack for a RadRover E-Bike on a 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • Between the RockyMounts Monorail, part # RKY10004 and the Malone Pilot, part # MPG2112, I would say that going with the Malone Pilot is the better choice. The Pilot is a very solid rack and I really like its bent rail styling, making loading a heavier bike just a little easier. Additionally, your bike having fenders means that most wheel mounts won't work for the bike, and out of the box the Malone Pilot is able to fit to either a frame or wheel mount, giving you flexibility with the...

  • Do Wheel Hooks Lock In Place On RockyMounts SplitRail Bike Carrier When Rack Is Folded Up
  • I went to the shop and checked out some of the platform bike carriers including the RockyMounts SplitRail, part # RKY1140. The arms do not lock in place, and after frequent use may swing a bit as you mentioned. You could carry a small bungee cord to hold the mast in place when no bikes are loaded and the rack is folded. I do have another option for you. I recommend the Yakima HoldUp, part # Y02443. When the masts are lowered they can slip behind the wheel cradle holding them in place....

  • Roof Rack and Surf/Snow Board Carriers for 2015 Jeep Cherokee Laredo with Raised Roof Side Rails
  • We have many roof rack options for your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Laredo with factory roof side rails that can be seen on the included link. These include racks from brands like Rhino-Rack, Thule and Yakima (among others) and also racks with round, square or aerodynamic crossbars in a range of lengths. In terms of best overall value and capability I really like the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero racks. These are similar to Thule AeroBlade racks in that they greatly reduce wind noise as compared to...

  • Will Yakima Lock Cores Work With RockyMounts Products
  • I spoke with my contact at RockyMounts and he confirmed that the Yakima lock cores will not fit RockyMounts products, like the Flagstaff Towers # RKY3002 that you referenced. To lock the RockyMounts Flagstaff Towers # RKY3002 you will want to use the Lock Cores # RKY0332. Lock cores look similar, but typically each is specific the to manufacturer.

  • Roof Rack Channel Mount Bike Carrier That Installs into T-Slots
  • The RockyMounts BrassKnuckles # RKY1201 will not mount using T-slots on crossbars. However, the RockyMounts JetLine Bike Rack # RKY1321 can. The Jetline will only work with bikes that have a quick-release front wheel. It does feature a locking option by adding two lock cores # RKY0332. For another channel mount bike carrier that uses T-slots the Thule ProRide # TH598003 is a frame mount that doesn't require the front wheel to be removed. It uses a padded clamp that holds your bike...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Toyota RAV4 to Allow Rear Hatch Clearance
  • When we installed the RockyMounts SplitRail part # RKY1140 in the hitch of a 2015 Toyota RAV4 we found that when tilted it allowed the rear hatch to open. Check out the picture I attached that shows the hatch opening as well as the demo video I attached that shows the rack being used on a 2015 Toyota RAV4. This rack is really great too because it only touches the tires of the bike which means no contact with the bikes frame or finish.

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Toyota Tacoma with Cargo Rails
  • 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...

  • Will RockyMounts TomaHawk Carry a Standard Size Mountain Bike
  • Yes, the RockyMounts TomaHawk Roof Bike Rack # RKY1222 will hold all styles of bikes that have tires from 20 to 29 inches. 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.

  • Adapter Needed to Fit 1-1/4" RockyMounts SplitRail # RKY1130 to a 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The adapter sleeve that I recommend using is the Brophy Hitch Reducer # HT02. This will reduce your 2" hitch receiver to a 1-1/4" receiver that your RockyMounts SplitRail # RKY1130 can mount into. The adapter comes with a hitch pin and clip but I recommend also getting an anti-rattle locking hitch pin like part # 63232 to help reduce the play of your bike rack. I have attached some review videos for you to check out as well.

  • Fork Bike Rack Adapter for Thule Bike Rack with Thru Axles
  • I wish I could recommend it for you but we had a customer come back who tried it and the adapter didn't fit. Thule does have their own adapters though like the part # TH53015B for 15-mm x 110-mm Boost Thru-Axle Forks # TH53012 for 12-mm x 100-mm Thru-Axle Forks # TH53020 for 20-mm, Thru-Axle Forks # TH530L for Lefty, Thru-Axle Forks # TH53015 for 15-mm, Thru-Axle Forks

  • Swing Away Bike Rack Recommendation for Mercedes Sprinter 3500
  • My favorite bike rack to recommend is the Thule Vertex Swing part # TH9031XT because it can carry up to 4 bikes and can swing out and away from the rear of the vehicle to give you complete access to the rear cargo area with bikes loaded. The arms of the rack can also fold down when not in use so that the bike rack doesn't take up much space as well. Check out the review video I attached for more info on this rack as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes...

  • Can RockyMounts Bed Rail Bike Carrier # RKY1097 Stay Mounted With Installation of Tonneau Cover
  • The RockyMounts Truck Bed Rail Bike Carrier, part # RKY1097, you have referenced, is designed to be installed on the factory-installed deck rail system rails of your 2012 Toyota Tacoma. The square brackets in the mounting hardware of the bike carrier will slide into the channel of the factory deck rail system. Then, the two bolts are inserted through the bracket and tightened down to hold the bracket in place. If your tonneau cover is installed in the channels of your factory rails,...

  • 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.

  • Roof Rack and Snowboard Carrier Recommendation for a 2007 Subaru Legacy
  • The first thing you are going to want is a roof rack for your 2007 Subaru Legacy that currently has a naked roof. For that I would recommend the Rhino Rack roof rack that consists of the following components: Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA118B-2 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Leg Kit # RRRLKVA Custom DK Clamps and Pads # DK082 Now if you plan on transporting up to 4 boards you would want the part # RR572.

  • What Keeps the Rear Tire on the Bike from Bouncing or Moving Around Over Bumps During Transport
  • The RockyMounts LoBAll Truck Bed Rail Bike Carrier # RKY1097 is designed to hold your bike in an upright position when used in the back or your Tacoma. We do not offer a specific product that is designed to secure the rear tire in the bed of your Tacoma, nor is one included with the RockyMounts Bed Rail Carrier. However you can use any general purpose strap to secure the rear tire of your bike down during transport.

  • Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack to Carry a Tandem Bike on a 2007 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The slots on the Thule AeroBlade bars, # THARB47, extend all the way to the end caps so you technically could place an item there. However if you where to place a bike in that location it may stick out too far on the outside of the vehicle making clearance an issue so you have to be aware of that when loaded. You could probably put another 2 bikes on the roof for a total of 3 but having 4 bikes could potentially be too many because of the width restrictions and weight limits of the...
