Video Transcript for Review of Rhode Gear Hitch Bike Rack Parts - Bike Cradle - RG8890083

Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the control block for bike racks. This is going to be the cradle that your bike will sit in. So this is basically going to keep your bike in place. It's going to fit on a upright arm, on either the Rhode Gear Highway bike carrier, or also the Prorack 2 bike rack. There are several different models of the Rhode Gear Highway that this fits, you can see a complete list of those at our website for the product page here at etrailer.com.But basically what I'm going to do with you guys is go over some measurements to make sure that this is going to fit your bike rack.

And this has a little slot in it to allow the strap to go through, so typically this is probably going to be sort of an anti-sway strap or anti-sway cradle. So it's going to go on the down tube of your bike to keep it from moving back and forth and making contact with your other bikes or your vehicle. It's made out of a durable plastic construction so it has a little bit of give, but it's not super brittle, so it should last for a long time and again, replace that cradle for us.So overall, it measures about 4-1/2 inches long from the top to this edge here, or the bottom to this edge, depending on how you have it mounted up. The widest point is going to be up here, it's about 1-5/8 of an inch across. And that's about the same as this little bottom node there.

The width is about 2-1/4 inch side to side. The large hole here has an inner diameter of about 1-3/32, so just under 1-1/8 inch. This slot here in the center to allow a strap to pass through measures about 1-1/8 long by 3/16 of an inch wide. And then this small hole down here, you might have a configuration where you need a pin to go through there, that's got an inner diameter of about 1/4 of an inch.So hopefully those measurements give you an idea of what this is going to fit. It does just come as you see it here.

There's no strap or anything included with this, so you will have to provide that on your own. We do have a lot of options for straps available here at etrailer.com if you want to pick one up. But that's going to do it for our look at the replacement control block for the Rhode Gear and Prorack bike racks.

by:

Spot on replacement for my worn out bike carrier cradles. Delivery speed was excellent. Bought online on Monday and delivered on Wednesday. Fast!




by:

Bought four replacement bike rack controls for my two bike carrier. The racks worked fine for the male bike but the straps could have been much longer to hold a woman's bike that doesn't have the crossbar. Therefore had to use bungee cords to attach bike to rack. I know that there is a special crossbar attachment designed for a female bike but this have been much too costly for a old bike rack.




by:

exact replacement of old parts, just the basic but done correctly




by:

I was impressed with the customer service and I love the product. I replaced the road blocks I had on my bike rack with these that are much easier to use.




by:

I receiver the product however it didn't work in my situation. I then purchased another bike rack from another site. It works great.




by:

Fit ProRack 2-bike trailer hitch rack as replacement part just as advertised.




by:

The people at etrailer were very helpful in assisting me with my part selection. The part that I ordered arrived quickly and was perfect. I will not hesitate to contact trainer.com for further products.




by:

Thanks for the fast service. I will be using you services in the future for more bike accessories as needed. The parts worked good.




by:

Found replacement parts online and etrailer was one option to order. No doubt in ny mind where to order from. Ordered and received same within a week as with previous other orders. Always great service and response.




by:

advertised as a replacement for Rhode Gear replacement. Not the case. Diameter is much larger than tube it goes over.

  • What is the Diameter of the Hole in the Rhode Gear Replacement Control Block for Highway Bike Racks
    I went out to the warehouse and measured the hole in the Replacement Control Block for Rhode Gear Highway bike racks, # RG8890083, and it measured 1.093 inches or 1-3/32 inches. I attached a photo and added the dimension I took for you, see link.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Replacement Cradle for Rhode Gear Shuttle Trunk Mount Bike Rack
    If the frame tubing of your Rhode Gear Spare Tire Shuttle bike rack is 1 inch in diameter, the # RG8890084 replacement cradle would work for you.

  • 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.

  • Hole Diameter of Thule Replacement Straps for Cradles TH534
    Bike rack parts such as rubber straps like Thule part # TH534 can sometimes be used interchangeably between different brands of bike racks. The Thule straps have holes that measure 7/16-inch. On their top side those holes have a rounded perimeter, to give something like a slight funnel shape, which gives that side of the strap a hole diameter closer to 1/2-inch. Rhode Gear was bought out by Yakima some years back and so there is limited availability of replacement parts for their racks....

  • Replacement Cradle for Harbor Freight Bike Rack
    The Replacement T3 Cradle Body # 853-5829 is designed to fit 1" tubes on the Thule Ridgeline, Roadway, Revolver and SpareMe bike racks, but if your Harbor Freight bike rack has a 1"" tube arm this will also fit on that. If your tube is 1-3/32" you can use the Replacement Control Block for RhodeGear # RG8890083 , or for 1-1/4" tubes the Replacement SuperCrush Cradle # 8880597 . If this bike rack has a different sized tube, let me know and I can recommend a different replacement cradle.

  • Replacement Rubber Straps for Rhode Gear Hitch Mount Bike Rack
    The Yakima Replacement Rubber Chain Straps for Yakima Bike Racks, part # 8890221 that you referenced, would probably work okay on your Rhode Gear rack. We have had customers confirm the fit.

  • Replacement Cradle for a 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Rack
    The Replacement T3 Cradle Body for Thule Bike Carriers # 853-5829 and the Replacement Rubber Strap for Thule T3 Bike Carrier Cradles # 753-3535 will most likely stretch to fit your 1-1/8 inch bars.
