Great solo rack
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- True to size
I own a Yakima Ridgeback 5 since and it was fine since I use it to carry my family's bikes but 95% of the time I only need it for my bike. For that purpose it wasn't as useful because you have to lower the rack even without a bike in order to access the trunk. It also sticks out a fair amount and you need to use a special bar to load MTBs. This Rockymount solved those problems and I'm very happy with it. With no bike loaded I can once again access my rear trunk using the remote without lowering the hitch rack. I can load my MTB without any additional equipment. The included lock is also thicker and longer than the Yakima lock which makes securing it easier and more reliable. There is some assembly involved. Nothing difficult and all tools are included but the printed instructions are lacking. The installation video on youtube is much more helpful. This rack is also very affordable compared to other solo or dual racks I researched. Highly recommend this for solo cyclists.

On the monorail solo how far does the rack stick out from the hitch? What are the dimensions of the unit?

Awesome and very light
I was looking for something light with nice security. The locks are included, so this is a full package in one. This is perfect.

- I've used it several times
Loved the rack. Easy to use and mount. I like the fact that is high enough for be out of the exhaust heat without compromising space for hatch opening.

Looking at the photos, it would appear this would not work with rim brake/direct mount bikes??? Or is there a different way that hook can orient so it’s not pulling against the fork?

The hooks on any platform rack can be put in different positions. Typically at about 11 or 1 o'clock. There's no reason to rest it against the fork.

- I've put it through the wringer
Iâve researched dozens of the hitch racks and I can honestly say Iâm glad I went with this one. The Rocky Mount MonoRail has exceeded my expectations and Backcountry had the best price . You wonât find a better functional and quality in the $200 price range Is there better hitch mounts out there ? Probably so but not in this price range! No regrets

- I've put it through the wringer
I've been cycling for about six years now and simply threw my bike into the back of my cars (Nissan Xterra and then a Subaru Crosstrek), which meant, though, that I could never use the back seats (or really the back of the car!). So when I got a new car in September (another Subaru Crosstrek), I decided it was time to bite the bullet and get a rack so I could actually use the rest of the car. I did some research and happened to come across this RockyMounts - and it's been great! Easy to get the bike in and out, seems quite secure (not had an issue so far), and really like that it tilts away so I have access to the back of the car, where I can now keep all my gear. And, compared to the alternatives, it's a great price. So glad I came across this and purchased it!

Excellent Design and Well Engineered
I agree with all the other reviews about this rack. This is truly a five star rated rack. The price of this rack is well worth it. I got a 50 pound ebike and drove the first 100 miles with the ebike mounted. Encountered speed bumps, pot holes, turns with no problems. Loading my heavy ebike was easy. A few simple contacts and it is done. No worries about it being unstable. The rack was mounted to the 2013 Honda Pilot.

I am looking at: RockyMounts MonoRail Solo Platform Hitch Rack - which says it takes an add on; however the add on says it does not support the 1.25" hitch. is that correct? You cannot add-on a second tray to the 1.25"?

Mark, I believe that restriction is for when using the extension on a 2 bike rack (to make it a 3 bike rack). My understanding is that the extension can be used on either mounting option for the single bike rack. See my reasoning below. The first point made is that it can be conve8to a 2 bike rack: https://rockymounts.com/collections/hitch-racks/products/monorail-solo-2-1-25 First bullet point states that only the 2" variant can be converted to a 3 bike rack: https://rockymounts.com/collections/hitch-racks/products/monorail
