Review of the RockyMounts Roof Bike Racks on a 2015 Honda CR-V

Today on our 2015 Honda CRV, we're going to take a look at the RockyMounts BrassKnuckle Roof Mounted Bike Rack. Part number is RKY1202. Now we have a bike on our rack, and we have our rack hooked to our vehicle. I just like to show you a few features of it. The first feature I would like to show you, like I said, brass knuckles. See up here, you can grab it like so. That's how you would engage your frame hook here over your front tire.

To disengage it, a little blue button here, just press in there and push up. Up here, like I said, in our wheel cradle, we have a front tire and a back tire, both with straps to protect our wheels and our spokes. We're going to go ahead and remove one of them. We're going to remove the one in the back first, and we're going to remove the one in the front. Before I go up here and disengage that, I'm going to need a little boost, because I don't want the bike to fall on me or the vehicle. Alrighty.

Like I said, grab it like it's brass knuckles, it would be this way. To disengage it, we're just going to hold on to our bike, press the blue button and come up. Like said, when you want to engage it, you grab it like it's brass knuckles, still on to your bike, bring it down right there in front of you or your brakes right there. I'll go ahead and disengage it, bring it up. They can move out of the way.

Now we can take our bike. I'm going to set this off to the side. As always, be in a good habit to replace your straps. All right. We're going to do that first. I'll come up here and do this one.

I'm just going to move our frame hook out of the way. Alrighty. The wheel straps here, they actually move. If you have a bigger bike or a smaller bike, just move them a little just likewise to the farthest way you need to go. Towards our back here, under our crossbars, we have 2 Allen bolts here. We have a nice little plate with a nice covering on it, so it protects your crossbars and your vehicle also. It's just pretty much Allen screw. You tighten it and loosen it, just make it nice and snug on your crossbars. As we move to the front, we'll just have another wheel cradle here that holds the front wheel. We just want to bring that down. Once again, the wheel strap here on the front also does the same thing like in the back. It moves forward to fit your size bike that you have. Now we're going to lift out our cover. Up on our cover, I guess we have a hole here. If you do want to put a lock on it, just look in our website. You can get that lock, so you have anti-theft. If you would look in the side, there's a little knob here, and it's the Allen wrench that actually tightens our straps underneath. We have 2 straps. Both of them are metal straps with a rubber coating, so it doesn't damage our vehicle or our crossbars. They fit into a little slot under here. I'm not sure if you can see under here, but they fit into a little slot to where they wrap around the crossbars and they tighten real nice. We're going ahead and put our cover back on, like so. Now we're ready to hit the road with our look at the RockyMount BrassKnuckle Roof Mounted Bike Rack, part number again is RKY1202, on today's 2015 Honda CRV.Speaker 2: You could find this and everything else right here at What's up, man.
