Recommendation for Platform Bike Rack for Bikes with Fenders


Does the Rocky Mounts split rail work on bikes with fenders?


Expert Reply:

The RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2 Bike Platform Rack # RKY11404 is not a good option for bikes with fenders over the front wheels. The hooks need to fit tight to the bike and fenders can get in the way or get damaged.

What I recommend is the Malone Pilot # MPG2112 for 2 inch hitches or # MPG2109 for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch hitches. This rack also has hooks but they can be placed at the tires like the SplitRail or they can hold the bike at the frame. This is a great option if one bike has fenders and the other doesn't. I have linked a video review of the Pilot for you.
