Review of Hollywood Racks Truck Bed Bike Racks HRT970


Today we'll be reviewing part number HRT970. This is a Hollywood Racks truck bed bike carrier. It has a fork-mounted design with a bolt-on installation. It's made from a black anodized aluminum construction, so it's going to stand up well against corrosion and rust. The hardware that you need to mount this is not included. The fork block is going to hold one bike in your truck bed or trailer. It works only on bikes with quick-release front wheels and it will fit bikes with both disk and standard braking systems. Nine-millimeter quick-release skewer allows for rapid loading and unloading so this is designed to fit bikes with 9mm forks.

Again, it's a simple bolt-on installation. This will attach through the truck bed rail, toolbox, trailer or any solid, flat surface. Here on the bottom you can see the mounting pattern. When you mount this, you're only going to use the two outer holes. If we measure the distance between those holes center on center, it's going to give us a measurement of right at 3 inches. The base is going to measure a total length of 4 and 1/4 and the depth or the width is going to give us a measurement of an inch and a half. This has a carrying capacity of one bike.

The skewer on this can be removed in case you ever need to replace it. Simply undo one portion of the skewer, or one end, and then it will slide right out. This is designed that the forks fit right in between the grooves here on the skewer or right inside the grooves on the skewer. Once you get a nice, snug fit . you want to make sure that your skewers open when you load, place the forks on, get a nice secure fit by tightening up the skewer and then you can close the lever on the side, which is going to further secure the forks to the mount. That's going to do it for today's review of part number HRT970. This is the Hollywood Racks truck bed bike carrier with a fork-mount design.
