Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Racks - RG8890084

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (69 Customer Reviews)


Adding this simple (and inexpensive) change to my Rhode Gear bike carrier was a great way to continue using it without buying an entirely new one. Over the years the foam protectors on the extension bars wore off and I was using pool noodles to protect the bikes. In just a matter of minutes I had the new cradles on and have used them numerous times already. Works good and is a simpler, quicker way to attach the bikes.

One year later and the cradles continue to be a great addition to my bike rack after numerous trips!

Almost Great. Was amazed I could find a replacement part for my 15 year old bike rack which had gone out of business. But etrailer had it. I would give them 5 stars for having the correct item number, having it in stock and for their quick shipping. But unfortunately for me, my bike rack was so old that the company had modified the part. The new has an inside hole opening of 1 inch; my old had an opening of 1-1/8 inch and initially the part would not work. I eventually was able to enlarge the hole and was able to use the parts and bring my great, but old bike rack back to life. See photos of original vs new.

I do not blame etrailer for this as changes had been made and was very happy they at least had a part I could use.


I bought my Rhode Gear Super Shuttle bike trunk rack in 1996 and a retaining tab on one of the control blocks finally broke off. This let my bike "sail" in the air and fly all around. This replacement cradle gave my rack some new life, and works better and easier than the original. I've attached some pictures of the old and new.


Very simple way to buy things and the product is great.

Michael - 05/07/2022


The cradle works as well or better than the original. Accurate description. My order and shipment were handled well. Thank you!

Still fine!
John S - 11/22/2021


Your replacement cradle worked out very well. I found that reading the reviews was very helpful when ordering. Please take time to measure. This is vital as several sizes with the same appearance are available.


Have an old Rhode Gear hitch-mounted bike carrier with worn out bike cradles. The rubber was just too old and brittle. I thought I would have to buy a new rack but other than the cradles, its fine. Too many things in landfills anyhow-not to mention saving some serious change. Loved the website-very informative, easy to navigate. The parts arrived quickly, and were very reasonably priced. Will definitely return in future.


Took longer to remove the old Rhode Gear cradles than to replace with these. Perfect fit on a 26 year old bike rack.


They are an exact replacement for my old Rhodes Gear bike rack. I've had it so long the old craddles died of sun rot.

still works fine!

Fits perfectly


These cradles completely re-vamped my old Rhodes Gear shuttle rack, and were a great upgrade to the original straps. The cradles were easy to install, and provide a solid, snug fit around the frame. With two bikes, there was no lateral rocking on the rack. Also, the service from George at etrailer was great, with really fast shipping! I would definitely recommend this product and eTrailer to others.


Identical to the original Rhode Gear parts. I was adding a short extention to my rack to add one more bike and these worked great.


I have an older Rhode Gear hitch mount bike rack that used a rigid plastic retaining system, these were worn out with the retaining tab gone.

I found these replacement retainers that are a far better design and replaced my original retainers with no issues.

Great product, rack is now usable again.


Have ordered often from and, as usual, quickly received exactly what I ordered. Great site for far more than just trailer items. The Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear bike rack was a very difficult to find item. Of course, I should have looked first at Highly recommend this site.


Tricky to get on my old beat up bike rack with 1inch diameter bars, but with a little elbow grease and windex for lubricant it went on and works great. Holds the bike stable and is much easier to use than bungy straps for sure.


Perfect fit and more secure than original design. Excellent.


Great replacement part and fits my 15 year old Rhode Gear Bike rack perfectly. Sizing information on Etrailer allowed me to order the correct size. Price and shipping very reasonable.


These fixtures are awesome. They replace some worn out plastic straps that had split apart. These new ones are very adaptable to whatever type or size of bike that I am carrying. The Velcro straps hold the bike frame in a secure position. Worth every dollar paid. Highly recommend.


Works as it should. My little Rhode Gear bike rack is an economical alternative to a big, expensive rack, and it has been worthy of owning. These rubber parts hold the bike on the rack. They were lost during a move, so I ordered one set (of two) although two sets will fit on the rack. If only one bike is loaded, it tends to turn diagonally to the back of the car, but no harm is done.


product was new, just as described, and it arrived quickly and well packaged. fits perfectly on my old-school Rhode rack.

A year later, still working like new. Great purchase.
Jerry O - 01/21/2015


Great replacement for my "very old" Rhodes trailer mount bike rack. Smaller, easier to work with thighs framed bikes.


Great service.....The product was perfect replacement for my bike carrier.The original straps were worn out due to sun exposure...Got my order on the2nd day.,,,,,Thank you...


These clips are vastly superior to the broken OEM ones on my old Rhode Gear rack. Ordering from was FAST, good, and cheap. I'm totally satisfied with the experience.


Replacement bike rack cradle is actually better than the original as the straps are far stronger. Perfect fit on my Rhode Gear rack.


Shipping was super fast. This is a better than original replacement part for the rhode gear bike rack.

  • Replacement Frame Cradles to Fit Rhode Gear Shuttle Bike Rack
    Since your Rhode Gear Shuttle bike rack has 1 inch diameter rack arms the Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Racks # RG8890084 that you referenced will fit it. The Shuttles all were made to fit at least 2 bikes so yours allowing you to tightly fit two bikes is normal. They like to make the arms as short as possible so that the bikes aren't hanging too far off the vehicle which would cause stress from added leverage. These are all sold individually so you'd need a quantity...

  • Length and Width of Strap for Replacement Rhode Gear Cradle # RG8890084
    I went out to our warehouse to measure the strap for the Replacement Rhode Gear Cradle # RG8890084. I measured an overall length of 11-3/4 inches including the metal loop, or 11-1/4 inches for just the strap without the loop, and a width of 1 inch. The strap by itself is not available separately from the cradle assembly.

    Rhode Gear was bought out by Yakima and there are a few replacement options available still like the Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Racks # RG8890084.

  • Replacement Cradles and Straps Needed for a Rhode Gear Super Shuttle
    Although the Rhode Gear Super Shuttle for 2 Bikes, part RG8015126, has been discontinued we still have some replacement parts available. Replacement Cradle w/ Strap - # RG8890084 Replacement Side Lower Strap - # RG8890248 I believe the part you are talking about is the replacement cradle and strap part # RG8890084. These parts are compatible with the 3 bike version of the Rhode Gear Super Shuttle as well.

  • Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Bike Rack
    There were actually only 2 different models for the Rhode Gear bike racks from Yakima. The Rhode Gear Highway is a 4 bike hitch mounted bike rack and the replacement cradle is part # RG8890083. The Rhode Gear Super Shuttle is a 3 bike trunk mounted bike rack for which the replacement cradle is part # RG8890084. I have attached pictures of both bike racks. The Highway is the tall one and the Super Shuttle is the shorter one with the straps attached to it.

  • Replacement Cradle and Strap for 2-Bike Rhode Gear Carrier
    We do have replacement cradles and straps available that are designed to fit specific model Rhode Gear Bike Carriers. Since you cannot locate the model of your existing rack, you can also measure the diameter of the arms that the cradles slide onto. If the arm diameter on your rack is 1 inch, the Replacement Cradle # RG8890084 should work great. If you measured a slightly larger diameter of 1-3/32 inches, then the Replacement Cradle # RG8890083 will be used instead.

  • Recommended Replacement Cradle For Rhode Gear Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier
    The replacement cradles we carry for Rhode Gear bikes are designed to fit specific models. The # RG8890083 will fit the Rhode Gear Highway bike carriers (8015200, 8015201, 8015202, 8015215, 8015216, 8015218, 8015219, 8015220, 8015221). If your bike carrier is one of the Shuttle bike carriers(RG8015127 and RG8015126), then the # RG8890084 would be the replacement you can use. Since you said your arms measure 1-inch I recommend going with the # RG8890084.

  • Availability of Rhode Gear Replacement Control Block # RG8890083
    The Rhode Gear Replacement Control Block # RG8890083 that you referenced is no longer available from Yakima (who bought out the brand several years back). No new replacement parts are being produced for those racks. We do still have some remaining stock of the cradle for the Super Shuttle, part # RG8890084. It sounds like you have found a workable solution by substituting a cradle from another manufacturer, Hollywood Racks.

  • Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Spare Tire Shuttle Bike Rack
    The only replacement cradle part still available from Yakima for the Rhode Gear Spare Tire Shuttle is the # RG8890084 replacement cradle. According to Yakima, the Spare Tire Shuttle had a different diameter frame tube (1 inch) than other Rhode Gear racks, which is why the # RG8890083 wouldn't work unless you shimmed out the tube with tape or via some other method.

  • Replacement Rubber Straps for Rhode Gear Hitch Shuttle
    I have a recommendation for you but the original replacement rubber straps are hard to come by. The brand was acquired by Prorack and dissolved a while back. However, we do have OEM replacement cradles for Rhode Gear Shuttle Racks # RG8890084. This comes with the rubber cradle and fabric hold down straps. If you are looking for a rubber strap, the best option, which is not an exact replacement, is the Yakima Rubber Strap # 8890221. We offer these straps in a set of three.

  • Replacement Cradles for Rhode Gear Super Shuttle Trunk Mounted Bike Racks
    For the Rhode Gear Super Shuttle you can use the replacement cradle, # RG8890084. These are sold in quantities of one. To replace all of the cradles on a 2 bike rack, you would need 4 cradles. The Super Shuttle has a capacity of 90 pounds. If the beach cruiser has a womens or alternative frame, you will need to use an adapter bar, # Y02531, for greater ground clearance and to carry the bike level.

  • Recommended Replacement Parts for Rhode Gear Bike Carrier
    For your Rhode Gear Bike Carrier, I would recommend the Replacement Cradle # RG8890084 you referenced. It provides a longer-lasting, more snug fit for the bikes you plan to transport as well as protecting the frame of the bike including the brake/gear cables. This particular cradle fits Yakima-era Super Shuttle racks, but we cannot guarantee it will fit the Speedster model.

    The correct replacement cradles for your Rhode Gear Shuttle Rack is # RG8890084. Rhode Gear was bought out by Yakima, and some of the old Rhode Gear products are still available like this one. The Thule Cradle # 853-7887 that you referenced, may work, but, it may also be too long to install over any curves in the bike rack arm. In the picture, you can see that the Thule cradle, which has a 1 inch diameter and a 2-5/8 inch width. The Rhode Gear cradle has a 1 inch diameter and 2-1/8...
