The Road Warrior fork-mount bike carrier is designed to fit into the channel of your front roof-rack crossbar. The head of the rack includes a steel bracket that slides into your crossbar channel and tightens with a bolt. The rear of the rack attaches to your crossbar with a clamp-on steel bracket and hand knobs.

This rack has an aerodynamic fork block that is set up to fit bikes with quick-release front wheels. A disc brake cutout ensures that the rack fits both disc- and standard-brake systems. The 9-mm, stainless steel skewer firmly grips your bike's front fork. And the built-in cam lever makes it easy to load and unload your bike.

The Road Warrior has a ratcheting rear wheel strap that slides along the rack's wheel tray to adjust to different bike lengths, ensuring that your bike is completely fastened down.

To deter the theft of your bike, the Road Warrior includes keyed-alike lock cores in the skewer and the fork block. This allows you to lock your bike to the rack and the rack to your crossbars.

The Road Warrior can be used on the driver's or passenger's side of your vehicle - just move the skewer handle and ratcheting wheel strap to the appropriate side of the rack.

I'm not too sure how to rate this but I'm not happy with it.
Everything that happened is no fault of etrailer. I've made many purchases from etrailer, they're a great distributor.

The bike rack appears to be great. The problem seems to be that they changed the design.

To start, UPS damaged the box in shipping and then tried to tape the package they sent me. After walking through the parts in the box with an etrailer rep on the phone, it seemed that no parts were missing.
So I proceeded to connect everything up based on the instructions.
As I put it together I noticed the mounting bracket in the rear doesn't have anything to remove the slop. The rear is literally resting on a slider, which means that it would rattle when driving around. Just for kicks I took it for a drive with my bike on top. It rattled like crazy!
So I looked at the installation videos on etrailer and then youtube. Every one of them showed an extra rear mounting bracket with knobs to tighten. These were not listed in the install manual so I suspect Rhino thought they could cut cost by eliminating them.

I contacted etrailer to see if they had any. They didn't. So I returned it. Sadly, I still had to pay a $25 restocking fee.

I'm not sure why etrailer charged me. It's not like I bought the wrong thing and didn't want it. It's actually a really nice bike carrier. Just a flaw in the design that etrailer should catch when they test it out in their videos. If anything, I've helped them out with this.
Hopefully etrailer will test out what I sent them, then reach out to Rhino about this new design flaw.

Again, I like etrailer as a service but I wish they had caught this before selling to me (and others). I strongly suggest that you don't buy this until the bracket issue gets resolved.

Also, take a look at the last pic of the Inno XA391 on the etrailer site. They resolve the rear bracket rattle by putting in a thumb screw.

Well that doesnt sound good. I have contacted the manufacturer and they have confirmed that those brackets should be included in part # RBC036. I have sent your information over to our customer service team for them to get you the missing parts that you need.


This bike carrier has a clean design and it assembled and attached to the roof rack easily. A locking front cover prevents it from being detached from the roof rack and the tray has a cut out in the front for a disc brake if my next bike has one. Once everything is snug, the bike feels solid and there's no slop.


Seem sturdy enough. The locking fork axle is a nice piece of mind. It should keep honest people honest.



Just got parts back about 2 months ago. Red locking tab broke on the first time removing the rack. Parts not available and on order for a couple months. Rhino did cover the parts and shipped them as soon as arrived. I found the weak link of the product I guess.


Very happy with this rooftop bike rack. Works perfectly. Installation was straightforward. All my purchases with etrailer have been 100% satisfactory. Very happy with the product lines and with the quick service. I often look here for hard to find parts.


Bought for my 2004 BMW 330i sedan. Fits beautifully. Bikes fit great. Wind noise isn't bad as it is a low profile fit. Looks nice on my car not cheap at all. I added Thule wheel holders and they fit perfect. Nice reliable rack for the money. Would recommend ??


Although I have not yet taken a trip with the bikes installed (I have two of these fork mount bike carriers on my crossbars) I tested the rack stability at home with bikes installed and they are very sturdy. Assembly of the carriers to my aero cross bars was easy but just a bit tedious).


The quality, fit, and installation of the Rhino Rack Road Warrior Rooftop bike carrier is terrific. Definitely on par or better than a comparable Thule bike rack.


Well.. over all I like Rhino Rack products and I LOVE etrailer.. so this review is more about Rhino Rack's instructions. Thumbs down on this.. I had such difficulty figuring out the very sparse installation instructions that I had to consult my husband...who can put absolutely anything together WITHOUT instructions. Which he pretty much had to do as the ones included with the roof bike rack were confusing and incomplete. Still a good rack though.


Received the product fast, great shipping time, the rhino bicycle warrior rack fits great into the rhino aero bars. Fits firmly and bicycles are secure on top.


Love this Bike is so easy to use. Will probably buy another one soon!


I am happy with the product. I have yet to drive with the bike mounted, but mounting the bike while the car was parked was easy and it felt secure.


Good bought whole roof rack package, ou tstanding!


instruction's doesn't explain everything you need to complete install smoothly


Nice Product, easy install, and holds bikes securely.


quick, professional service

  • Max Width of Rhino-Rack Road Warrior Rooftop Bike Carrier
    The Rhino-Rack Road Warrior Rooftop Bike Carrier # RBC036 measures 4" at the fixed silver pieces where the quick-release skewer fits through the head of the rack so the rack will definitely fit with the 5" of crossbar space you have, you'll just need to keep in mind that your box won't open very far once your bike is loaded up so make sure your cargo box has everything in it prior to getting your bike installed on the roof. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Fork Mount Bike Rack Recommendation that Fits Thru Axle Style Bikes
    We have Thru axle style fork mounted bike racks available, but the part # RBC036 that you referenced is not one of them. The Kuat Trio part # RBC036 fits 9 mm, 15 mm, and 20 mm Thru axles and would be a great choice.

  • Comparing the Rhino-Rack MountainTrail and Road Warrior Rooftop Bike Carriers
    The main difference between the Rhino-Rack MountainTrail Rooftop Bike Carrier part # RBC035 and the Rhino-Rack Road Warrior Rooftop Bike Carrier part # RBC036 is how they mount. The MountainTrail mounts using a wraparound style clamp whereas the Road Warrior mounts in a track/c-channel. If you have a track/c-channel then you can use both. The Road Warrior has a three year warranty and the MountainTrail has a lifetime warranty. I have attached a review video of both bike racks for you as well.

  • Replacement Lock Cores for my RockyMounts Jetline Bike Rack
    I'm sorry but the Rhino Rack Road Warrior part # RBC036 is not compatible with the Rocky Mounts Bike Racks.

    The Rhino Rack Road Warrior part # RBC036 is a really great choice that fits the factory crossbars of your 2018 Honda Odyssey, is priced great, and comes with locks for the bikes and the rack.

  • Width of Thule Pulse Alpine With Lid Opened
    The Thule Pulse Alpine # TH613 is about 25-1/2 inches wide but when you open the lid it's not much wider. I reached out to Thule and they said that there is no change in width when the lid is open. The lid does not open a full 90 degrees so this helps the width stay to a minimum so you can put other accessories on top like a rooftop bike rack # RBC036.

  • How To Replace Lock Core On Skewer for Rhino-Rack Road Warrior Rooftop Bike Carrier
    I spoke with Rhino Rack about the Rhino-Rack Road Warrior Rooftop Bike Carrier part # RBC036 and they stated there is a tab on the backside of the skewer that will need to be depressed with the key inside the lock and it being in the unlocked position. You can then replace the lock core with one that comes with the Rhino-Rack Masterkey Lock Barrels part # RRRK005-4.

  • What Bike Rack Do You Recommend for My 2021 Ford Expedition Max?
    I have a great solution for you. Here at etrailer, we usually don't recommend carrying more than two bikes on a roof rack system at a time due to weight capacity restrictions. With that being said, if you plan on carrying up to two bikes on your factory crossbars on your 2021 Ford Expedition, I recommend the Yakima ForkLift Roof Mounted Bike Carrier - Fork Mount # Y02098. The ForkLift is compatible with mountain bikes and secures the bike to the rack using the fork. The space on your factory...

    The roof rack I recommend for your 2016 Nissan Sentra is the Rhino Rack Aero.

This is a fork-mount bike carrier and has a weight capacity of 33-lbs.

  • Roof Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Hyundai Genesis
    To carry a bike rack on the roof of your 2014 Hyundai Genesis Sedan you will need to install a roof rack first. The most popular custom fit rack is the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK026 which if you install the rack properly you would not have to worry about clamping down too tight on the roof of the vehicle and damaging anything. The fork mounted roof bike rack by Rhino Rack part # RBC036 would then be a great option as well.

The length front the furthest forward position of your front crossbar on your 2014 Focus Hatchback to the line where the line where the roof and the hatch meets is 57 inches.

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes on a 2013 Prius V
    The hitches available for your Prius are Class I, which have a low tongue weight capacity (maximum amount of weight that can safely be suspended from the hitch) of 200 lbs. Because of this, the bike rack and the hitch manufacturers both agree that only two bikes should be carried in a bike rack installed on a Class I hitch. Adding a third and fourth bike would place the weight too far rearward of the trailer hitch, which would apply leverage that the hitch isn't designed to withstand. Carrying...
