I've used this combo, Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero & Hybrid Roof Bike Rack for many months while camping across many states over thousands of highway and rural roads. They've held on great with no problems at all. The bikes slip into the rack easily and don't wobble at any speed. The locking system is easy and effective. The crossbar system is completely steady with a load, very good looking and feels/looks like a very high quality accessory. I have zero regrets with this purchase.


Very impressed with the quality and build of this rack. Assembly was pretty straight forward. It fits well on my Thule rack with aero bars, holds my older Cannondale mountain bike securely and seems to be removed easily when not in use. I chose this style it would be a little more future proof and universal vs a fork mount. I purchased this model by recommendation from the etrailer YouTube video due to it being more easily removed than the similar Thule model. That was a BIG plus for me. I don't always need it attached. Bonus is that it includes the locks. Super happy with the purchase. Etrailer gave me a great shopping experience and shipped quickly.


I love the racks, instructions were understandable, one of my end caps came in bad, it can wiggle off after locking but I emailed etrailer and they arranged a replacement quick with rhino rack, pretty nice of them, comes with rhino rack decal and just have to decide where to put it, out my bike up and took it for a test drive and it was very nice, I love their package because it comes with locks and way cheaper than the competitors, very satisfied


I haven’t had the roof rack and the bike rack long enough to give a more detailed review but so far parts look amazing. Great quality, they hold my bike pretty good, no weird noises, a bit if wind noise but definitely not loud/ it doesn’t bother at all. But overall great product and company. Fast shipping as well and great updates.

I’ll update the review in a couple months.


I just put my bike on my new bike rack carrier. Excellent product excellent customer service I recommend this product to anybody!


This rack is well made very easy to install and a breeze to load bikes on. The rack holds the bike in place firmly. The integrated cable lock is a nice feature.


Couldn’t be more satisfied with my decision to go with this bike rack, was on the fence between brands but Rhino Rack makes it beyond easy to use, from installing it on the racks, to daily use is just unbelievably simple! 100% would recommend to anyone looking into bike racks. Also huge selling point for sure is that it covers a very wide range of tire sizes where others are very specific!


This is a well built rack and carrier. The installation is straight forward. The enclosed instructions are helpful. This is the easiest roof mount bike carrier I have used

Staff made sure I had the right gear to complete the install.


Great option for one bike. Keep the tires on. Doesn't rock at all. Key and lock ensures it can't come out


Held our bike in place for a 900 mile round trip. It works!.


One year in! Easy to install. Looks sweet. Holds strong. Just be sure to latch it tight right up against your bike’s front frame!


Very solidly built and reliably shipped. Works wonderfully.


Great Racks! Easy to install and they look great. Good quality material.




Good Kit everything was present and accounted
for. The unit went on smoothly but not as easy as it looked on video. Got it done.


Fit perfectly and holds the bikes really solid


Fits perfectly and works great


Bike carrier is as advertised, easy to operate along with providing great security and one key for all locks, also E-trailer delivered as advertised with the best price.


Package arrived quick and I got it installed this morning. Next day off I’ll be seeing how easy it is to load the bike onto it. Feels secure and folds compactly when not in use.

  • Will Rhino Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack Fit a 2005 Volvo V70 and 2013 Honda Pilot with OEM Roof Racks
    Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack # RRRBC050 is a versatile bike carrier. To determine if it will fit both of your vehicles you can take some measurements. The bike rack fits crossbar spreads of 21-5/8 inches to 39-3/4 inches. Crossbar spread is measured from the center of one bar to the center of the other bar. The mounting hardware will fit on crossbars that are up to 3-3/4 inches wide. So as long as the crossbars on both vehicles meet the above requirements the rack will fit! I have...

  • Recommended Roof Bike Rack for Semi-Fat Tires on 2008 Dodge Sprinter
    For a roof bike rack to use with the Rhino Rack Vortex Roof Rack you already have on your 2008 Dodge Sprinter, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # RRRBC050-FB. This is a great wheel-mount carrier that will let you transport your bike with semi-fat tires. It can support tire widths of up to 5 inches and has a weight capacity of 45 pounds. Just keep in mind that the spacing between two of your crossbars needs to be between 21-5/8 inches and 39-3/4 inches for this...

  • Recommended Roof Rack & Rack-Mount Bike Carriers for 2015 Audi S3
    We can offer you lots of choices in roof-rack-mount bike carriers for use on your 2015 Audi S3. Before you commit to a dealer-installed OEM type rack you might want to consider one of the aftermarket systems shown on the linked page. Options include round, square and aero-style crossbars and racks systems for your S3 are available from quality brands like Yakima and Thule. Often the aftermarket racks will be priced much lower than OEM alternatives, just something to consider unless you're...

  • How Tall is the Thule UpRide Bike Rack when Folded Down and Not in Use
    I spoke with my contact at Thule and on the UpRide # TH599000 she stated you would need to allow for 7 inches. You may like the Rhino-Rack Hybrid rack # RRRBC050. When it is folded down it measures approximately 2 inches from the tops of the roof rack. I have linked a video of this rack for you.

  • Roof Bike Rack Recommendations for Rhino Rack Roof Rack
    The most popular fork mounted bike rack that will fit your aero bars is the Rhino Rack part # RBC035 which would be a great option. If you wanted to leave the front wheel on the bike instead the part # RRRBC050. I attached review videos for both for you to check out as well.

  • Roof Bike Rack that Can Mount In Top Channel of Rhino Rack Crossbars
    The Rhino Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack # RRRBC050 that you referenced can fit around the Rhino Rack crossbars you have but this rack does not have ability to fit into top channel of crossbars. The most similar bike rack that will fit in the top channels of your crossbars is the Thule ProRide XT part # TH598004 which is a very similar roof rack that allows you to keep both wheels of the bike installed.

  • Will a 2.8 Inch Wide Tire Fit the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack # RRRBC050
    That 1/10 of an inch difference between your 2.8 inch wide tires and the 2.7 inch the Rhino-Rack bike rack # RRRBC050 was designed for probably won't be an issue. That is if the 2.8 inch tires really are 2.8 inches wide and not actually wider. For peace of mind it would be better to go with a rack, such as the HighRoad # Y02114, which will accept the 2.8 inch wide tires for sure. The rack will fit the Rhino-Rack crossbars as well. If you do want to make changes on orders it is best to...

  • Can Standard-Sized Tires Still Work with Fat Tire Adapter Kit on Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack
    You can still carry a bike with standard-sized tires on the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack # RRRBC050 with the Fat Tire Adapter Kit # RRRBCA033 installed. The cradle is basically used as a backstop for the front tire so you're good to go!

  • Recommended Roof Rack Bike Carrier for Wider Bike Tires
    I may have a solution for you, but the Rhino Rack # RRRBC050 does not have a way to carry tires wider than 2.7". If you' need a roof top carrier for a wider tire bike then I recommend using the Yakima Highroad # Y02114 since it can handle tires up to 4" wide. Roof top bike carriers are typically designed for smaller sized bike tires, but the Highroad does allow for carrying some wider size tires. I've linked a short review video we did of this carrier for you to check out.

  • Can I Fit A Bike With 50" Wheelbase On The Inno Tire Hold 2 Bike Rack?
    I have a solution for you, but the Inno Tire Hold II Roof Bike Rack # INA389 can only hold a bike with a wheelbase of up to 48". I would not recommend using this carrier for a bike that has a wheelbase of 50". To verify the wheelbase of your bike, you can measure from the center of one wheel to the center of the next wheel and determine the distance as seen in the attached photo. If your bike's wheelbase is in fact 50" then I would look into the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Mounted Bike Rack...

  • Roof Bike Rack For 2021 Toyota Prius Prime With Factory OEM Crossbars
    While there are bike racks that will work for your 2021 Toyota Prius Prime with factory crossbars, the Thule Big Mouth is only a fit for square bars, and there isn't an adapter that will allow it to fit on factory bars. So while I realize this isn't the news you were looking for, the only option available to transport your bike on that rack is with a new bike rack. There are a pair of options I recommend, and they have different price points so you can determine the right one for you: -...

  • Which Roof-Mounted Bike Rack Is Best For A Bike With A Front Fender?
    A bike rack that uses a wheel-mount design, such as the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On - Aluminum # RRRBC050, is not ideal for bikes with fenders. This is because the hook that clamps around the front wheel would likely interfere with a fender and possibly cause damage. Instead, you will want to go with a frame-mount carrier such as the Thule ProRide XT Roof Bike Rack - Frame Mount - Clamp On or Channel Mount - Aluminum # TH598004. This carrier clamps around...

It fits bikes with 20 inch to 29 inch tires, and it comes with an integrated cable lock that adds an additional layer of theft deterrence. I attached a review video link below.

    I like the quality yet economical Rhino Rack Roof Rack # RR87GR. This roof rack is a confirmed fit for 2015 Toyota Yaris 3-Door and 5-Door hatchback models that have no existing rails or crossbars. It's a quiet and aerodynamic locking rack that ships with everything needed for installation. The rack weight capacity is 165 lbs. (Be sure not to exceed your roof weight capacity). If you're interested in a bike rack to go along with your new roof rack, I would suggest the locking wheel mount...

  • Recommended Roof Rack Bike Rack to Carry Road Mountain and Fat Bikes
    The Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 will only fit tire sizes up to 2-1/2 inches wide, but I may have a solution for you. The Rhino-Rack Hybrid # RRRBC050-FB is a wheel mount bike for fat bikes. It can fit 20 to 29 inch bikes. It is large enough to hold a fat bike but the straps will tighten around the wheels of mountain and road bikes as well.

  • How To Secure A Fat Tire Bike to Roof Rack on Tonneau Cover
    I do have an option for you but most locking fork mounted bike racks are not fat tire bike compatible nor would the Yakima Locking BlockHead Single Bike Truck Bed Mounted Rack part # Y01118 which I believe is what you're referring to be able to secure itself to the crossbar. Instead, I recommend taking a look at the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes part # RRRBC050-FB which will clamp around the crossbars you have above your tonneau cover and secure your fat tire bike without...

  • Comparing Rhino Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack and RockyMounts BrassKnuckles
    The two racks you mentioned are pretty similar takes on the same type of bike rack but I would go with the Rhino Rack Hybrid part # RRRBC050-FB over the RockyMounts BrassKnuckles # RKY1201 for a couple reasons. The Rhino Rack is 3 lbs lighter, comes with locks (BrassKnuckles requires you buy them separately), and if ever needed to carry a fat bike it's already compatilbe whereas the BrassKnuckle requires an additional adapter.

  • Can Bicycles Be Additionally Mounted on Kayak Trailer
    Because the cross bars on the Malone # MAL73FR EcoSport trailer are further apart than cross bars on a vehicle, you will need to use the Rhino-Rack # RRRBC050 Roof Bike Rack. You will have determine if you have space for two bikes. The width of the cross bars is 54" and you will have to subtract the width of your kayak. From that result determine if you have room room for your additional bikes. I bet you will.
