Why We Like The SplitRail LS 2-Bike Hitch Rack
RockyMounts used their popular SplitRail to develop the SplitRail LS 2-Bike Hitch Rack. This rack goes beyond the basics, adding a platform to the classic hitch rack. The SplitRail secures our bikes without contacting the frames, and instead uses its deep wheel wells, ratchet straps, and adjustable arms to secure the bike by the wheels.
RockyMounts equipped the SplitRail to accommodate everything from your son's cruiser to your aero tri bike, with each strut including four inches of side-to-side adjustment to ensure you get a secure fit on different frame sizes. The SplitRail isn't picky; it works with any bike with wheels between 20 and 29 inches, and was built with space for plus-sized tires.

Solid Rack, Heavy Duty
- I've put it through the wringer
This is a solid rack, I've been using the original Splitrail for over 5 years now with a 2in receiver. There are a dozen options out there and I think this is just as sturdy as all the other big names that I've tried. Unsure why user below gave poor review for fit, this thing works exactly as advertised and carries all my bikes from gravel to 27.5 to 29er. I haven't tried the add-on trays yet and do think they are too pricey for what they and that is my only negative about this rack system. But if you find this on sale, I would totally buy it - you won't go wrong for years of good use.
