ROCKYMOUNTS CAR RACKS/STORAGE RACKS
The frustrating thing about shopping online is not being able to touch the item you're buying. If you're buying a pair of jeans, it can be difficult to tell whether the jeans will fit once they arrive. The same goes for bike racks, especially if you have factory crossbars on your car. Well, here's a refreshing idea that takes the frustration out of buying bike racks online–RockyMounts GUARANTEES that its TieRod Bike Mount will fit on your factory crossbars. They can do this because of the TieRod's unique design. It uses rubber-coated stainless steel straps to secure it to the cross bars and takes just minutes to install.
RockyMounts doesn't make crossbars. Because of that, the TieRod is designed to work with both Yakima's round bars and Thule's square bars, as well as factory racks. The TieRod is also compatible with road and mountain bikes, as long as they have a standard QR fork. It works with bikes that have rim brakes and disc brakes. The 45 inch tubular tray will accommodate almost any bike. RockyMounts makes a special model for folks with recumbents and XtraCycles.
The simple quick-release makes it easy to load and unload your bike, so you won't be stuck struggling with the rack, dropping your bike, denting your car, smashing your finger, and generally flailing with your bike. The quick-release is lock compatible (lock cores are sold separately) so your bike won't disappear when you duck into a restaurant for a post-ride snack.
The RockyMounts TieRod Bike Mount comes in Black, Silver, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Pink, White, and Orange.
