StarStarStarStarStar Exceptionally useful and sturdy

by
Product: RockyMounts BackStage 2" Receiver Hitch Rack: 2-Bike, Black
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

We have a Promaster Van, which we use for camping. We purchased this rack because, as far as we could tell, it is the only tray-mount rack that swing-arms away from the back doors, so we can open them without removing the bikes or the rack. So far we've found it to be easy to use for this, and very solid with holding our bikes. It takes only moments to load up the bikes, and it holds them securely while driving. It folds flat up against the van when the bikes are not on it, which is also nice. It takes just one bolt to remove the rack entirely, so not bad at all once we're done with a roadtrip.

Cons

The locks seem a little weak to thwart a seasoned thief. Also, it only swing-arms to the passenger side. It would be nice if it came with the option of going the other direction, so we didn't have to walk around the bikes every time we go from the camp in front of the sliding door to the back doors. But, this is not such a big deal in the grand scheme of life. We love this rack.

Other Thoughts

This rack is heavy duty, and weights a good bit. Also, we have to put a piece of padding on the end of the inside handlebar so it doesn't hit the van door on rough roads (I think this is peculiar just for the type of van that we have, and probably isn't a problem on other vehicle shapes). I am also a fan of the manufacturer, Rocky Mounts. I have always found their products well-designed and their company attitude to be caring and thoughtful -- and it doens't hurt that they're based out of Colorado, in my hometown.

Product: RockyMounts BackStage 2" Receiver Hitch Rack: 2-Bike, Black
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

After owing racks from several manufacturers, the features and build quality of this particular bike rack stand out from the crowd. It's solid, and holds two bikes very securely while offering the ability to tilt or swivel them away from the vehicle. I installed this on the back of a 21 foot class B RV after recently experiencing the failure of a Saris rack that allowed the back wheel of a correctly rigged bike to slip laterally off the cross rail, and destroy the back wheel assembly. The Rocky Mount rack is built like a tank, with easy to discern adjustments (as they are the only parts colored blue) and really simple yet secure attachment points that do not allow the bikes to scrape each other or the rack. FANTASTIC!

Cons

There are two minor concerns. First, the supplied locks have plastic housings. While I realize these are not meant to be high security devices, a bit more solid lock would be appreciated.

The other issue is that even with a design that claims to allow bikes with a wheelbase of up to 48" to be rigged, my 46" wheelbase bikes have their back wheels sitting somewhat past the rear saddles. This places those saddles at a 45° angle to the wheels, rather than directly beneath them. Seems solid enough, yet it appears to place quite a bit of the weight on the straps rather than the saddles. The company assures me this is normal but I think they would improve this rack by creating a slide-adjustable rear saddle that would allow those supports to be more squarely beneath the back wheels.

Other Thoughts

For the price, for the features, this rack blows away every other one I have owned or seen from other vendors. It's not even close. Thule and Yakima make a nice product, but neither they nor several other makers offer a rack this bombproof but simple to use, and for a very fair price. Kudos!
