I spoke with my contact at Swagman who said that the Horizontal Style 2 Bike Bag # S82006 does fit with platform bike racks so it should be compatible with the RockyMounts BackStage # RKY10002.

Since the BackStage has that extra arm which allows it to swing away the fit might be a bit tight. We actually went out and tried installing the bag on the BackStage. Although we were able to get the bag to fit, the bikes that were available were a bit smaller. When they were installed on the BackStage the distance from the handlebars (outermost to innermost) was at the most 30" (see attached photo). If the handlebars on your bikes measure any further than that I don't believe you will be able to get the bag to fit.

Attached are some pictures of when we installed the bikes and the bag on the BackStage for you to reference.
