wow

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

ive had almost every type of roof rack out there and this is by far the best. bikes are super stable even in high winds.

Bitchin

I've used a few different racks, and this one is my favorite. Installation was easy and it's very low profile. You can lock the rack to your cross bars, and then lock your bike to the rack (lock cores sold separately). The brass knuckles holds your bike in place extremely well, with no wiggles, wobbles or otherwise. If you're looking for a well built, easy to use roof rack this is the one.

Truly the best bike rack available.

I've had this thing through over 60mph cross winds while traveling 75mph and it hardly moved an inch. I bought the fatty adapter and love how easy everything is to use. Kind of a bummer you have to buy the locks but they aren't that expensive, however they are an absolute must. 5 stars. If you want a bike rack for your roof, I would only recommend brass knuckles from RockyMounts.

Nice picture, Justin! Sweet ride(s)!

Great roof rack with one caveat

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a nice bike rack. It was simple to attach to the factory crossbars on my Subaru Forester, and once I got over the paranoia that my bike would fly off the roof at highway speeds, I feel confident that the rack provides a stable carrier for road and mountain bikes. The wheel holder ratchets down securely, and nothing touches the bike frame. My only gripe is that the brass knuckles arm can be a real #$@&%*! to pivot, especially when loading a bike onto an SUV, holding the frame with one hand, and trying to wrestle the arm into the right position with the other hand. This is made worse after a long ride, when there is very little wrestle left in my body. I've read that I can loosen the retaining collar for the arm to ease the movement, but I haven't gotten around to that yet.

I had the same problem, get around to loosening the retaining collar it makes a great rack even better!

Best roof rack available!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Every rack wants to be a Rockymounts Brass Knuckle. It works like they all should. Plus, it's the most low profile rack there is. It goes perfectly with my whisper quiet Thule aero bars. Even though it looks like my mini's about to joust.

Best roof rack available!

Just right

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was searching for a rack that would hold my road/cross bike with standard QR axle and my mountain bike with thru axle. I didn't want to fuss with an adapter each time I switched between them, and I didn't want to have a frame mount pinching carbon tubes.<br><br>Brass Knuckles solves all of those problems - no need to remove front wheel, and no frame contact. Definitely easier, or...less attention needed...to mount a disc-brake equipped bike because the mounting part can get quite close to front caliper brakes, but isn't a big deal. I've used it with both road and mountain bike thus far in windy West Texas at highway speeds with no issue. Note: does require lock cores if you want to lock, and RockyMounts cores seem to be less expensive than others.<br><br>In short: it just works. Excellent solution for me.
