Versatile fork-mounted carrier.

The RockyMount Switch Hitter Bike Mount is a versatile fork-mounted bike carrier, attaching to virtually any crossbar system with its universal mounting hardware. T-track hardware is included for slotted bars. Lightweight cast aluminum construction is robust and non-corrosive, with a sleek anodized finish that complements your vehicle. An integrated, magnetized cable lock pulls out of the rear to secure your frame. Locking the rack itself, Rocky Mount offers separate locking cores (not included).

The Switch Hitter securely carries bikes with 9mm quick-release front skewers and modern thru-axle standards, with the included 9mm quick-release skewer and separate sleeves for 12x100mm, 15x100mm, and Boost 15x110mm thru-axles. The ratcheting rear wheel strap accommodates a variety of bike sizes by sliding along the carrier. Also, it's compatible with tires up to three-inches wide, should you need to transport trail bikes with plus-sized tires.

Works Great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've had this rack for two weeks now; using it for several races. Install couldn't have been easier. 1st rack took 10 minutes, second maybe 5 minutes. Skewer has a wide range from open to close, so I didn't have to tighten/loosen every time I wanted to use it. Cable lock is very easy to pull out; to the point that I would think it would fall out when not in use...but it doesn't. I like the lock around the rear triangle better than typical locking skewer. I read reviews from buyers complaining about cable rattling and general wind noise of the rack. I haven't seen either. Only negative was metal to metal contact at rear crossbar. This could wear finish off the crossbar...fixed it with some black tape. So far, very good
