RockyMounts LoBall Fork Mount Bike Rack Track Rail Mounted

This fork-mount bike rack installs easily in your truck bed's utility track. Before you install the rack, you need to remove the skewer. Insert the track plates into the track, pass the Torx bolts through the mounting holes on the rack, and thread them into the track plates. Slide the assembly anywhere along the utility track and tighten the bolts with the provided Torx key. When the rack is secure reattach the skewer.

Just to let you know I like to shop around to find the best product and this product from RockyMounts fits the bill. The rack installed flawlessly with the Loball locking fork mounts. It only took 40 minutes from box to complete the installation. Hauling three bikes is now a breeze. The best part was no drilling required.


Comments
I am still impressed with the quality and ease of use.

It took a little bit to get the forks into the rails on a 2012 Tacoma. But after installing the first, the second and third were easy as pie. Adjusting to fit the locker to the fork takes a bit of fine tuning with a small tolerance on either the too loose or too tight sides. But once dialed in this is the best thing out there. Locking the fork to the fork mount is awesome. Even driving on some really horrible roads the bikes do not jitter about at all. I could just fit 3 fork mounts (road bikes) in my Tacoma. I would recommend this product.


Comments
After a while the mechanism needed some WD40 to keep the locking action working. But other than that its been great.

I installed this lock on the front top rail of my pickup bed to hold a tandem bicycle for transport.Havent actually used it yet in driving conditions, but rated it a 5 simply for the heavy construction of the product. I've broken 2 similar products and feel I'd be hard pressed to break this one. I'm hoping for the best and will update this review later.

I installed four of these in the track system that came with my 2019 Ram 1500 and it wa relatively easy. My only complaint is that they all have separate keys. It would be much more convenient if they could all be keyed alike.




by:

Fit like a glove, it was a perfect fit to my 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Super easy installation, literally it took more time unboxing the items than installed them to my truck. Comes with all the hardware needed. In my case I bought an additional LoBall Rack to add a third bike.




by:

As far as my purchase, I was amazed at how quickly it arrived and the notifications by your company on the status. I'm very pleased with my bike holder and very satisfied with the level of customer service provided by etrailer. Attached are some photos! I will definitely use your website again for future purchases. Thank you again!




by:

Excellent product. Easy to install with clear instructions. Very solid build. Bike front fork fits smoothly and tightens firmly in place. I trusted my $2800 tri bike to and from Ironman Florida from TX. Very satisfied!


Comments
Hi Patrick, thanks for checking in. Yea, the bike mounts are still hanging tough. I dont use it constantly, but anytime I need to safely transport my tri bike, the bike mounts do the job. So thanks for the follow up.

I bought RockyMounts Loball track fork mounts for my 14 year old truck's bed and couldn't be happier. I installed them yesterday, attached our bikes, and took them all on a twisty, bumpy test drive. Everything checked out great. The bikes held up fine with no slippage in the bed. We used to just load the bikes into the bed without mounts, enduring slippage and damage to the bikes bumping into each other and the sides of the bed. We live in the mountains and travel both to local trails and trails 50+ miles away. I like the locking feature, too, for short stops. They fit fine on an existing track under my roll-top bed cover. Rated max weight for each bike is 35 lbs. Our cross-bikes are 31 lbs, each.




by:

Exactly as described, delivered in a timely manner, always great communication and friendly service. Will continue to do business with etrailer. Thanks again for a great product.




by:

Service from eTrailer is excellent. I knew the status of my order all the way from initial purchase to my front porch.

Installation took 5 minutes.

Now I have the option to use my bumper mounted bike carrier when the bed is full. But with the RockMounts I can quickly throw the bikes in the bed, locked and secure. The body of the mount has room for cables for extra security and to hold the front wheels.

Thank you eTrailer.




by:

Easy to install, easy to use. Very happy with the mounts.

Still using them, love the locking part. Feel very comfortable with leaving bike to get a bite after a long ride. Thanks

I spent several weeks looking for a specific device that would tie into my Tacoma tie-down system in the bed of my truck. I knew exactly what I was looking for and it did not seem to exist, to the point where I was considering making something myself. One last look brought me to the etrailer site, where I found exactly what I was I was looking for. This RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack system keeps my road bike firmly mounted in the back of my truck whatever the road conditions. To top it off, the bike rack was available for a lower price than I would have been able to put something together myself and it certainly looks better than anything I could have thrown together. Excellent product.

I ordered a similar rack when I purchased my truck from Toyota several years ago. That rack was difficult to use and rusted within a few months of my purchase. I saw this rack on etrailers website and thought I would give it another try. This new rack is easy to use and install, made of quality material, and his priced similar to the Toyota rack I originally purchased. It is a far superior rack than the one Toyota cells. It's locking capability is a big plus as well.

I had made back rail for my tundra. Bike rack went on smoothly. No problems. I like one key opens all three of them. Thanks




by:

This has worked perfectly for my road bike. Mounts perfectly in my 2021/Tacoma. I especially like the locking feature for security while traveling. Keep up the quality work, thanks.

2008 Toyota Tacoma

So far, so good! The RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack was delivered right on time. I was informed of the delivery date and the communication from the company has been excellent. It is obvious that they care about excellent customer service. The rack was packed well and came with easy to understand directions. There are also good installation videos available online. It was a breeze to install in my 2008 Toyota Tacoma! I connected the bike and it is secure. I like the locking mechanism that came with two keys. So far, I am very pleased with this rack! The lifetime warranty is a comfort, too.


Comments
Absolutely LOVE my bike rack after one year. It holds my racing bike securely by the front fork. Its quick and easy to attach and remove my bike. The lock works well, too. It was super-easy to install on the front rail of my Toyota Tacomas truck bed. Its an awesome little rack!

This product looks great! Great quality! and Fits Great!! just as described and took literally 3 minutes to install on my 2006 Tacoma's bed rail. Excellent product. This is my second purchase from etrailer and will be back for a hitch, harness, and scooter rack. I uploaded a picture of installed product. THANKS!!




by:

Awesome bike mount! Well worth the money. It fits with Access original roll up tonneau cover perfectly. This mount is very sturdy and the locking mechanism gives a great added sense of security.




by:

Works great! Easy to use and don’t have to take my bed cover off.




by:
2011 Toyota Tacoma

The RockyMounts LoBalk rack works perfectly on my 2011 Toyota Tacoma. Installation only took 5 minutes. As shown on the etrailer.com review video, the bikes don't move even on rougher roads. Well worth the money.




by:
2014 Toyota Tundra

The mount is exactly as described. I have a 2014 Tundra and it installed in roughly 10 minutes. As seen in another review, I also used LocTite and tamper-proof Torx head bolts to add more security but this was only a few dollars. The ride hight and ease of use is fantastic. If my vehicle choice ever changes, the RockyMount will be my first stop for a bike mount. Absolutely fantastic product quality and service.




by:

The mounts bolted right in, are solid and work perfectly!


Comments
The mounts are still working well, i did break one of the locking assemblies but i have to overtighten to hold the adapters shown in the pictures. Otherwise a good product!

Well thought out design. Installation was easy - probably took less than 2 minutes. Bought two to hold bikes in the bed of my Tacoma. Once secured, bikes don't move and are held securely. Will also be easy to remove when biking season is over, and will take up little space when stored. Small size does not reduce usefulness of truck bed and eliminates need for space hogging rack. One small quibble - the locking mechanism is a bit "rough". I gently removed the machining burr on the keys with emory cloth and squirted some graphite lube into the lock mechanism. This smoothed it out - it will likely get smoother with use.

A perfect fit for bed track bar of 2017 Nissan Frontier. I bought pair of these locks and they mounted easily. They held two bikes upright and in place, locking mechanism is good. These are so much better than hitch mount bike racks.


Comments
Great bike mounts! They fit my 2017 Nissan Frontier truck bed tracking system perfectly.
