Why We Like The WestSlope 2-Bike Hitch Rack

As wallet-friendly as it is feature-filled, the RockyMounts WestSlope 2-Bike Hitch Rack gets you and your friend's bikes safely from the garage to the trailhead with quick, secure, and hassle-free convenience. Living up to its name, this rack's frame body is sloped to create a tiered mounting arrangement that ingeniously eliminates handlebar interference between the bikes. By using a soft-touch wheel hook and a ratcheted swing arm, the WestSlope provides a secure fit without any harmful contact between your bikes and car. Plus, the rack folds flat against the vehicle when not in use, and tilts down 30 degrees to allow for easy hatch access to your gear.

  • Secure hitch rack built to last without emptying your wallet
  • Holds up to two bikes, weighing 40lbs each
  • Tiered mounting design prevents handlebar contact between bikes
  • Carries tires up to 3in-wide, and diameters from 20-to-29in
  • Folds flat and tilts down 30-degrees to allow for hatch access

Great high quality rack for a good price

True to size

My wife and I have used this rack a couple times a week for the last 2 years excluding during the winter to carry both MTB and road bikes all over New England. It's been rock solid, no rust issues and all the plastic components have held up fine. I highly recommend it. It's so solid that it usually just stays on the car all summer long through all weather. Also for the reviewer who said there's no way to secure the arms when it's folded up, you are supposed to use the straps that hold the rear wheel to secure the arms, it works perfectly, not sure how you didn't figure that out.

DO NOT BUY THIS RACK

We bought the westslope from our local bike shop less than a year ago. Within that time, the bolt holding one of the support beams SHEARED TWICE now. Just last week, while driving, one of the plastic cups holding the front wheel completely broke off, sending my bike crashing off the rack. Thank goodness we were driving slowly or else the bike would have been destroyed. Rockymounts idea of "warranty" was to send us a new bolt. They are well aware of this issue and continue to sell racks that break bikes. Even once repaired, I can no longer trust this rack to carry my bikes safely, and will be shopping for a replacement asap (definitely not another rockymounts). My bike shop was horrified and continue to see other issues with this rack as well; they do not plan to carry the westslope anymore.

Thanks... I appreciate your comments. I'll take a pass on this carrier.

I've had this rack for 2 years. During the first heavy rainstorm it was in it began to rust out of the seams. 2 years later this has only gotten worse. I'm now forced to replace it because of concerns about structural integrity, every component is now rusty, with ripples in the paintwork and unsightly rust stains everywhere. In addition, many of the plastic components have begun to wear and have excessive play. As someone who rides MTB 2x a week or more, this rack got me to the trailhead, but only just. Finally, Rocky mounts did not include any way to secure the arms when the rack is folded up on the vehicle, so I've had to use my own Velcro straps to stop the arms from swinging toward my trunk and smacking it during braking. This rack looks like a bargain, but it is really just a waste of money.

Will this attach safely to the Yakima backswing swing away adapter?

Good bike trailer, great on sale

Hi quality construction that will no doubt last. Way better than most racks if you get around $200-250. Wobbles a little, bit otherwise there was nothing even close for the price. At $330 it is still a solid rack.

What kind of leeway do I have on this rack if my bike has a wheelbase in between 48 in. and 49 in? Am I still safe or do I go with the MonoRail Solo platform mount instead?
