RockyMounts MonoRail Platform Hitch Rack
RockyMountsMonoRail Platform Hitch Rack

Dual-bike dream ship.

You can forget about painstakingly loading your bike in the rear hatch when you outfit your vehicle with the RockyMounts MonoRail Platform Hitch Rack. This two-bike carrier conveniently mounts to either 1.25- or 2-inch receiver hitches, giving you the ability to mount it to your smaller car or large truck. For greater capacity on downhill shuttles and family outings, the 2-inch receiver version gives you the option for carrying a third bike with the MonoRail Single Bike Add-On (sold separately).

The sturdy platform design carries up to 120 pounds of total weight, which is considerably more than many hitch-mounted racks in this category. It accommodates bikes with 20 to 29-inch wheels, with tires up to a gargantuan 5-inch width. This gives you the ability to quickly and easily transport bikes ranging from your favorite road bikes to full-suspension mountain bikes, and even the biggest of fat tire bruisers. The adjustable front wheel clamp eliminates the need for frame contact, which is a major plus for riders with carbon frames and sensitive paint jobs. Three inches of side-to-side adjustment gives you ample room to space out bikes, without them contacting each other at highway speeds.

Solid for the money

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Seems solidly built and holds both by road and mtn bikes very securely. It does require a small amount of assembly - probably took me 20 mins to put the wheel trays on. It's nice that it comes with locks for the rack and bikes, but I wouldn't call them very elegantly integrated and the plastic lock housing doesn't inspire great confidence. I'd use a separate cable or u lock if you're leaving it parked anywhere iffy.
