Rocky Bike Mounts.....

For those of you that haul bikes around....bought these about 3 weeks ago....they work great, hold very securely......Also you can lock the bike in.......although if someone wants your bike bad enough........

Here's some pics.....

Rocky Mount

These Mounts Do Rule!!!

For Extra Security I Bought A Kryptonite Locking Cable From Lowes The Thickest They Had And Put That Throught The D-ring On The Bed Near The Tail Gate And Then I Put The Cable Through The Rear Triangle Of The Bike. That Way The Frame Is Secured Even If They Get The Fork Loose.

p.s. the mounting hardware that comes with the mount sucks, I had the bike in the back and went down a pretty rough dirt road and the hole thing (mount w/fork and bike in it) popped out of the rail. I went to Lowes and got some washers to slide in the track. Now it is much more snug, not coming out.

You mean those oval shaped things don't stay put? Crud, I was gonna make up a set of those to hold my Yakima fork mount in place. Please let me know.

Yep those suck.

You have to add a washer that fits exactly in the channel and they the oval and then you can snug it up.

You might be able to squeeze 3 in there.......I don't think 4 would fit........although if you moved the end ones all the way to the edge........

I bet if you had two mounts spread all the way apart you could put two bikes in the middle, alternating forwards and backwards to accomodate the bar widths, and bungee them without extra mounts...letting the outside bikes be the support...

If you had the rail cross bar you could mount two bike mounts on it near the end of the bed and have 4 bikes together. Two facing forward, two facing backwards. If you had them all facing the same direction the handlebars would probably all get in the way of each other.

Where did you get them for this price and was it the Clutch SD? I can only find them for $36
