Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Note: If you are installing the rack using the 2" shank, the included threaded hitch pin does not allow the use of a hitch lock.


The versatile Rola TX-102 hitch-mounted bike carrier allows you to safely and securely carry two bicycles of almost any frame size on the back of your vehicle.


Rola TX-102 bike rack anti-sway cradles

The bike rack has large, soft anti-sway cradles that hold your bikes securely in place during travel with rubber straps and that accommodate bike-frame tube sizes up to 2" wide and 3" tall. The anti-sway devices touch your bike frame at three points to keep the bikes from moving back and forth, eliminating bike-to-bike contact during travel and protecting your bikes's painted surfaces. The cradles can be repositioned along the rack arms to ensure that your bikes remain properly spaced.


Rola TX-102 bike rack arm folding lever

The TX-102 has dual arms that provide your bikes with excellent support. You can fold down the arms for convenient storage when the rack is not in use by removing the handle mounted on the top of the upright support arm. When the arms are lowered replace the handle to lock the arms in place in the down position.



The bike carrier includes an integrated cable lock that stores inside the upright support arm when you are not using the rack. The cable lock secures to a post at the end of one of the rack arms to lock your bikes to the carrier. The cable lock comes with two keys.


Rola TX-102 bike rack spring-loaded tilting pinRola TX-102 bike rack tilted-->

The TX-102 offers easy access to the rear cargo area without your having to remove the bikes from the rack. You can tilt the bike carrier away from your vehicle by pulling a pin at the foot of the rack. Pull the upright arm of the rack up and forward until it rests on the stops that keep it from hitting the ground. To restore the rack to the upright position, push the rack back into place and insert the pin and clip.



The bike carrier features Rola's patented flip shank, which has both a 1-1/4" square end and a 2" square end for use with either size hitch receiver. The shank rotates around a clevis pin and locks into your desired position with a simple pin and clip. This eliminates the need for a hitch adapter and makes moving the rack between vehicles very quick and easy.

Video Transcript for Rola TX-102 Hitch Bike Rack Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Rola TX-102, tilting 2 bike rack for inch and a quarter and 2 inch hitches, part number 59400. The Rola TX is the ideal solution for carrying 2 bikes safely and securely on the back of your vehicle to the trails. It secures our bike in 3 places with these heavy duty adjustable straps. We've got 2 for the top tube, and then 1 for the down tube. This one's going to be our anti sway strap and it's going to help reduce the movement in our bike while we're on the road. The cradles are adjustable along the dual arms, and their going to help keep bike to bike contact down to a minimum. They're made out of a heavy duty rubber, so it's going to help protect our bike's finish, and they also feature raised grooves to help accommodate our brake lines.

The anti sway cradle itself pivots around the dual arms to ensure the best bike contact. It also has a rubber padding with raised grooves to further accommodate our brake lines. For additional security, we have an integrated lock that is stored in our center mast. It comes with 2 keys. We've got a nice dust cover to help protect it from the elements. It's simply going to clip onto our lock on the end of our dual arms.

What we'll do is we'll pull it out, and then we'll just clip it into the end. Our dual arms are going to provide excellent support for our 2 bikes. They fold down for storage when not in use. Just simply pull out the 2 pins on top, lower them back down, and then you've got it. The whole back rack is a silver powder coat finish, so it's going to be protected from rust and corrosion. Some bikes, such as your women's and children's and bikes with alternative frame styles, may require the use of a bike adapter bar.

This is just going to help keep your bike nice and level, and make it fit better with the bike rack. We've got plenty here at etrailer.com, go ahead and pick one up. Now that we've gone over some of the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. This can be used for either inch and a quarter, or 2 inch hitches. We've got a 2 inch receiver here today, so we're going to go ahead and flip our shank around and realign the pin holes here.

Put our pin back in place. It doesn't matter which side you put your pin in, just as long as you put the clip on the other side. Then, we can go ahead and load our shank into the receiver, and line up the pin holes. Once I get those pin holes lined up, I'll take my included anti rattle bolt, and thread that through. Now, the nice thing about this anti rattle bolt is it's going to help reduce some of the play and the rattle within our hitch and our bike rack here. As you can see, there's a lot of play. Tighten down your anti rattle bolt. Today, I'm using a socket wrench to do it. Once we get that tightened up, put our pin in place. As you can see, most of that play is gone. Now, before we load up a bike, it does have a nice tilt feature, so if you need to get into your rear hatch, you just simply come down here, pull off the clip, remove the pin, lift up on our center mast, tilt it outward until it rests right here, and then we can get into our rear hatch to remove any cargo, gear, groceries, anything we might have with us on our trip. Now we can undo our straps to get ready to load our bike. We'll come up and over the dual arms. Work our way to the back. Want to make sure that our down tube is right nicely up against this cradle here. This is going to be our anti sway cradle. We'll bring our top one over. Want to make sure that our top tube sits nicely in the top portion there. Bring our strap over, and then same thing with this one. Now that we've got one bike loaded up, let's go ahead and load up one more and then take it on our test course to see how it performs. Here on our test course, let's go into our slalom. It's going to show side to side action, such as going around corner or evasive maneuvering. Then, onto our alternating speed bumps, this is going to show a twisting action, such as going over pot holes, or uneven pavement. Then finally onto our solid speed bumps. This is going to show an up and down action, such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. That's going to complete our look at the Rola TX-102 tilting tube bike rack for inch and a quarter and 2 inch hitches, part number 59400.

I really like the Hitch, but received it in a damaged box and with some scratches. I installed it on the vehicle in less than 30 minutes. Only had one issue starting the rear bolt on the passenger side, so I used a pry bar to gently align the hitch hole with the chassis bolt hole. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the scratches from the damaged box. I did send photos of the box and Hitch damage to shipping. I have attached photos showing the chassis after removing the plastic cover and tow bracket on the driver's side and after lowering the tailpipe on the passenger side. I also have photo showing the installed Hitch bolts on both sides as well as views of the completed installation up on the lift an then on the ground. This was installed on a Toyota 2017 RAV4 Hybrid. I will be using it with my newly purchased ROLA TX-102 2 Bike Carrier Rack. 421584

I used my new Rola TX-102 hitch bicycle rack twice over the weekend. My car is a 2017 Prius Prime with a Curt Trailer Hitch (Class I - 1-1/4", Item # C11473.) There were many things I liked about the bicycle rack. I could easily lift the rack and attach it to the hitch. I was worried that this would be difficult for me, but it was not a problem. The rack is solidly made and the simple design made it very easy to use. My bicycle was held firmly in place by the three straps and I really liked that I could lock the bike to the rack with the attached cable lock. There was plenty of clearance between my rear bumper and the rack. There were a couple of things I did not like about the rack. The directions that came with the rack were a little hard for me to follow. However, the instructional videos posted on etrailer resolved my problems. When driving with the rack, there was a bit of sway from side to side, particularly when I rounded a corner. When I contacted etrailer about this, I was told that some sway is normal in a bike rack in this price range. By the way, etrailer responded very promptly to my inquiry. 431818

On a budget and did not want to spend $200-$400 on a receiver hitch style bike rack, this one appealed to me not only for the price but also for the options. I like I am able to lock my bike to the rack especially while traveling or stopping at my favorite watering hole after a long day of riding. The ability to tilt the rack down to open the tailgate or rear hatch makes it easy. The anti-rattle is also convenient however can be cumbersome for those who frequently want to remove the rack. You could go to a regular hitch pin with ease if you wanted. It would be neat if the incorporated a anti-rattle/locking hitch pin to secure the bike rack to the receiver. All in all I am happy with this purchase. 128176


Comments

Got rid of it. Didnt work well with my full suspension mtn bike. Hard plastic mounts rub the paint right of my bike. Ended up using old inner tube to place between my bike and the rack to protect the paint.

This hitch is a perfect fit on my outlander sport. Took about 15 minutes to install including prep. I got this hitch to use with a bike rack. The other reason I got it, is because it looks great on the car. Gives it an aggressive and clean look. 396588

I'm quite happy with the purchase of the Rola TX-102 2-Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - 59400. It's sturdy, thoughtfully designed and well made. It accommodates my full suspension mountain bike without modifications and was easy to assemble. I can't speak to the hitch fit for 2" or 1-1/4" receivers as I have an ancient 1-5/8" receiver. But with the addition of some shims the 1-1/4" fits fine and has been over some rough roads with no issues. 397624

I did significant research on hitch mounted racks, considering cost, ease of use, appearance, durability, stability, accessibility of interior, ease of installation, etc. With my new Rola rack in place, I can say I definitely made the right decision. The rack arrived at my home just two business days after placing my online order (with standard shipping). Assembly (very little required) and installation took less than ten minutes. The rack is very stable, has a sleek design and small profile, and holds my bike very securely. I highly recommend the Rola TX 102 rack and etrailer as a resource. 227141

The images and exploded schematics in the directions that came from Rola were a little confusing about where to put the nylon washers. After watching the videos provided by Etrailer, I was able to figure it out. This is not an issue with Etrailer. It's a slight misunderstanding that the manufacturer should be made aware of. The Rola bike rack does not accommodate some of the girls bicycle frames due to frame variations very well. You might have to purchase an intermediate frame bracket from a bicycle shop to make some of the girls bikes fit properly. However, a very innovative product, and it does exactly as described in the website. Overall, the product does exactly as described. I'm happy with my purchase. Etrailer provided me with what I was looking for. 245959

You must by the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches when you buy this product (if you have the 1-1/4" trailer hitch like I do) . There is significant play between the hitch and the insert. I found this out only after purchasing the bike rack and trailer hitch (maybe I should have read more reviews). From a quick internet search I found this is a common issue with all trailer hitches and bike racks (in other words not a product issue). Installation of the bike rack is trivial and it works as advertised. I have only had it for a day and used it once, but it is easy to load my two bikes, they do not sway very much and it is easy to unload the bikes. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for bike rack that will hold two bikes. 241875

This carrier is very inconvenient to use. The straps are very difficult to get on and off. Also, it isn't very high and is challenging to keep the bike high enough so the tires aren't on the street. On my 99 Acura Integra 4 door the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" (60891) it was impossible to keep the bike tires off the road because the hitch angles down toward the street instead of parallel with the street. The Rola TX-102 2 Bike Carrier for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting (59400) is attached in the attached pictures. It hits the road on inclines and bumps and can't keep bikes high enough to keep tires off the road. If the hitch was parallel the bike carrier would have worked better. However, 22839

I purchased the eTrailer 2 bicycle hitch mount to transport my mountain bike. I like the ease of use however, the bolt that holds the vertical support needs to be very tight to keep it from rattling. I replaced the two plastic supplied washers with rubber ones that work much better. In addition, trying to insert the bolt into the receiver hitch with the anti-rattle piece is difficult and took me two hours to finally get it through the hitch. There has to be a better way as the spring that hold the anti-rattle piece is hard to insert into the hitch receiver and hold in place while you try and insert the bolt through the hitch and anti-rattle piece at the same time without it moving. Once installed it works great on my F150 pickup. 23250

I like the product but i was surprised how heavy it was. Most of the weight comes from the collar bracket. I like that it has a bike lock on it and pretty simple to install and it holds my Trek very well. I am disappointed about how much play there is between the shank (1 1/4") and the collar bracket. This is causing the main support tube to rock from 11 oclock to 1 oclock, similar to a metronome. I would prefer a product that is very 'tight' and stable. It looks like ill have to put some shims in there? 404040

This product when I received it looked like it was previously opened. Accessories where sealed in bags, but you could tell the item was removed from the box at one point as the cardboard packaging inside was ripped and just not holding everything in the correct location. The was extra tape around the box showing the original tape was cut. That is the reason for four stars. However I did manage to put everything together and it works as advertised and I am very happy with the product! One thing I do wish it had was a locking hitch pin, because while the bikes are locked to the rack. there is nothing to stop someone stealing the complete rack with bikes attached to them! 375913

Really happy with this rack. Some small complaints but nothing that would stop be from buying another one. The assembly instructions were slightly unclear, however, without a little brain power and patience its pretty easy to figure out how it all goes together. Additionally, the 1and 1/4 receiver is just slightly to small (and I mean SLIGHTLY) to the point where the rack wiggles around on the back. It doesn't wiggle that much, but its noticeable. I added some teflon tap to tight everything up and it stabilized it pretty well. Otherwise, e-trailer is great! Best prices I could find, shipped very fast in great condition! 52809

I have had a chance to use my new rack and have mostly positive impressions. First For what you pay this is a very nice rack. It does not have a convenient waist level release to allow the rack to tilt, but it is not $400 either. Second The design is attractive in an industrial sort of way. Very straightforward and to my eye, elegant in it's simplicity. The feature that allows different hitch sizes is nice also. Three Very heavily built and seems to hold bikes very securely. Four This only applies to my vehicle, a Lexus 06 RX330, but I can lift my hatch without leaning the rack back. It JUST clears. 278058


Comments

The only problem with the rack is that the rubber strap meant to stabilize the downtube broke the first time I took the rack across country. The winds were high, but the breakage left the bike to swing outward, away from the car. I had to fashion a retaining strap, a belt, to join the front wheel and the downtube to the main support of the rack.

Instructions to assemble were clear, and it took less than 5 minutes to get it together. Seems sturdy, but I have yet to have a chance to mount it on my vehicle. Something came loose during the shipping process, and there were multiple scratches to the silver powder coating. Since I live on the gulf coast, I will have to repair these area or else they will corrode relatively quick. Regardless, I'm happy with the purchase and will only provide additional feedback if there are mounting or swaying issues once I get it installed on the Jeep. 329252

I have had this for a year now and have only been able to use twice and had to rig it to work. My bikes (female and 1 mountain) would NOT hook up to it and a strap broke after 1 use. I also use the small end 1 1/4 and it wobbles like NO end more than a few inches each direction. If I didn't live in Germany I would of returned it, but postage cost more than the product. I think if you had a plain street bike the ones road bikers use it would work. but with a thicker frame it does not... 385520

Fast, Easy, Great The websites video are great they give a true example of the product which helps with choosing and installing the rack. With all the features and the price this rack is the best bang for the buck. also get a receiver lock silent hitch pin, it's an extra few buck but make a big difference. Fast shipping and great customer service!!! 3408


Comments

Would you please identify the part number of the receiver lock silent hitch pin you mentioned? Is this for a 2-inch hitch?

I looked up Grant's order. He added the Let'sGoAero Anti-Rattle Lock, part # 63232
Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span
$32.90
to his Rola TX-102. This lock can only be used when the TX-102 is setup for 2 inch hitches. It will not work with the 1-1/4 inch side.

Excellent on shipping . Recieved shortly after order. Great follow up from company. Installation was easy.i do recommend buy that tool to take off the 14 plastic anchors. I was able to install hitch without removing bumper. Bike rack although not my bike pictured ,i will be carrying 2 Giant Bikes. Easy on and off for bikes. Front tires i am going to bungy in place or buy some kind of stabalizer for . Bike rack a little shaky but overall great products for the price. 294105

Took longer than expected to get this rack but was very pleased with the quality and design of the bike rack once it arrived. E-Trailer did stay in touch with me along the way to keep me informed as to the order's progress. I have purchase much from E-Trailer in the past, but this was the only thing I had to wait 5+ weeks for. Glad I decided to wait it out. Will continue to do business with them in the future, just hope the wait times for orders are reduced. 152395

The etrailer website "store" is extremely easy to use with tons of detailed information, product photos, and lots of videos. I was very happy to see SUV specific solutions for 2 bike carriers coupled with an easy way to compare various products that would meet our needs. Placing the order was a breeze and delivery was extremely quick with no damage whatsoever due to the excellent packing. Very, very pleased with the entire shopping experience at etrailer. 333828

Carrier was extremely easy to set-up and install on my vehicle.....simply slides into normal trailer-hitch. Doesn't rattle or bounce around while carrying my bike, or bikes. When bikes are loaded on rack I can easily tilt carrier outward, to allow my Chevy HHR rear hatch to open. Carrier portion folds down when not in use, saving space. Great product for the price. Rubber stretch-parts are replaceable if/when ever needed. Can't go wrong with this item. 311806

The only complaint I have about this bike rack is that the 1-1/4" hitch does not fit snug in the receiver, and I needed to shim it to keep the rack from swinging side to side. Other than that, the bike mounts and removes quickly, and remains secure when mounted. The built in cable lock is nice touch -- not the highest security system available, but enough to prevent snatch and grab theft. 51361

Product was very nice quality. Liked the way it could swing down and tilt. Nice looking rack. Exactly what I needed. The locking key cable was definitely a plus. I can now use this for all me vehicles such as SUV, Mini-Van and camper hitches. Very comfortable now that rack wont stick out in a bike parking area and possibly hit someone who is not paying attention. Very Nice 430687

WOW!!!! A++ I bought this cuz it was the only cheep way for putting bikes my 08 mitsu eclipse. Of course i had to buy the trailer hitch(24754) and adapter (HTAD)also. The adapter was so tight going in to the hitch i had to use a hammer just so it would go in! I hope i can get it back out! But the bike rack is a grate product for with all that it has to offer. 2658

We have a 2014 Prius and were concerned about being able to carry our two bikes. This carrier works very well. Can't say enough about the great service from etrailer...they even alerted us to the fact that we didn't originally order the correct size of carrier to match the previously ordered hitch. Delivered on time, well packaged and easy to put together. 130342

Like it. Heavy duty construction. Locking bike to carrier is great and the anti-swing tie-downs are good but I have noticed they rub on the bike paint. :( Maybe a layer of cushion would help with that) Spendy bike and I care if it gets marred. Two bikes are a bit tight but it works. LOVE the swing down bar feature when not in use and for storage. 357489

Rack received did not exactly match the product in the video but was close enough for me to figure out. The differences were in the bolt that attaches it to the hitch and the pin that rotates the main support arm down for access to the trunk were different. Over all nice rack and the video explains a lot. Nice job guys. Bike on. 22917

Nice rack Overall quality good. Assembled easily, but one of the end plugs was broken on arrival... etrailer support is sending me a new plug. Handy tilt feature allows access to SUV's rear door, even with bikes mounted. Fits loosely in hitch mount, so probably need to add a shim of some sort to prevent excessive movement. 2641

Top of the line bargain This was purchased sight unseen. I just needed a two bike, hitch mounted carrier for my Lexus RX330. It has all the features.

I really like the bike carrier, it holds the 2 bikes really well, the only thing that I was not that happy about, was that when it is in the receiver it is a little loose, so it moves around a bit. Thank you. 34222

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Bike Carrier For Forest River R Pod
  • I recommend first installing a trailer hitch on the back of your Rpod, and then a hitch mounted bike carrier. The trailer hitch I recommend is the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch, part # 13703. This will work with RVs that have a frame width between 22 and 72 inches. The hitch can be bolted on or welded on. The bike carrier I recommend is the Let's Go Aero VeeMe V2 2-Bike Rack, part # VME-V2. This rack is RV rated and has a weight capacity of 50-lbs per bike.

  • Preventing Bike Wheels From Spinning When Carried on Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack

Also when carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bicycles, I would recommend using the Swagman Frame Bike Adapter Bar, part # 64005. This will allow you to carry those types of bikes level on your bike rack. I have included some links to instructions and videos for you.

The Rola bike rack has 10 inches from it's pin hole to the upright mast of the rack so it should clear by 2-1/2 inches. You would need to double check this measurement on your vehicle to be sure.

One of the most popular hitches for your vehicle is part # 75599. This installs underneath your rear bumper. Then you would pick a bike rack to fit a 2 inch hitch. We have bike racks that will hold 2 to 5 bikes, like these popular models; the 4 bike rack part # TH956 or a lighter 2 bike rack like part # 59400. I have...

  • Recommended 3 Bike Rack for a 2010 Honda Fit With a Class I Trailer Hitch
  • You are only able to carry two bikes on a class 1 hitch, like the hitch installed on your 2010 Honda Fit. You could use any 3-bike rack that would work with your 1-1/4 inch class I hitch, but you would only be able to carry two bikes on it, installing them on the two slots closest to the back of the vehicle. This is due to the leverage that occurs as you move an accessory outward from the trailer hitch. I would recommend the Thule Helium Aero 3-bike rack, part # TH9043. This rack...

  • Bike Rack That Can Accommodate More Than 2 Bikes on 2006 Impreza With Class I Receiver
  • The only hitch offered for your 2006 Impreza is a Class I, which has a relatively low tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. This is due to the strength of the attachment points on the frame rails where the hitch installs to the vehicle. Because of this low tongue weight capacity, no more than two bikes should be placed on a bike rack used in a class I receiver (although the rack might be able to accommodate 3 or 4 bikes). As more bikes are added, the leverage placed on the receiver increases....

  • Recommend 2 Bike Rack With Short Distance From Trailer Hitch Pin Hole To End of Bike Rack Arms
  • I walked down to our showroom and measured the Rola TX-102 2 Bike Carrier, part # 59400. If set for a 2 Inch hitch, part # 59400 measures a total of 22-3/4 Inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the arms. A rack that totals 28 Inches when used with a 2 Inch Receiver would be the Yakima HighLite Aluminum Bike Rack, part # Y02438, but the arms of the HighLite fold down when the bike rack is not being used. When the arms are folded the distance from the center of the...

  • RV Bike Rack Recommendation for a Class B RV
  • I will be happy to help. The first piece of information that will help you choose a bike rack is that not all bike racks can be used on RVs, even if it is a Class B RV. On RVs and trailers, there is excess bouncing and movement at the trailer hitch. Most hitch mount bike racks cannot handle the excess bouncing and would likely fail during your trip causing expensive damages. We do have several bike racks that are rated for use on a RV. I have attached a link to these bike racks for...

  • Trailer Hitch and 2-Bike Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Ford Escape
  • Since you will only be using the trailer hitch to carry 2 bikes I recommend going with a Class II trailer hitch # 36529. I have linked a video showing installation of this trailer hitch for you. For a bike carrier we have numerous options that are compatible with the Class II hitch. The most popular carrier option for owners of the 2014 Ford Escape is the Swagman XTC-2, # S64670. this is a platform style bike carrier that holds 2 bikes by the wheels and center of the frame. I have linked...

  • Will Rola TX-102 Bike Rack, Part # 59400 Clear the Spare Tire on 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • The Rola TX-102 Folding Bike Rack, part # 59400 offers 7-1/2 inches of clearance between the hitch pin hole and the upright portion of the rack. The best method of determining if this rack will work with your FJ Cruiser would be to measure rearward from the hitch pin hole in the receiver to find out how much clearance is required to clear the spare tire. The easiest way to do this is to take a straight piece of lumber (such as a 2x4) and stand it up straight against the face of the spare...
