People that live in the mountains can simply walk out of the door, get on their bike, and just go ride for a few hours. Good for them. The rest of us need to do at least a little bit of driving before we get up into the hills. In order to make that ordeal that much smoother, RockyMounts has come out with the new MonoRail.
It’s a simple but effective bike rack designed to swing away from the back of your car. That means you don’t have to unload your entire rack before popping the trunk on your car. Pretty nice, right? The rack fits all 2 inch hitches and can hold up to two of your mountain bikes provided their tires are between the size of 20 and 29 inches. Bringing more than two along for the ride? You can add a third bike holder for just a little extra. Are you a rain-or-shine cyclist? Well the Boulder, Colorado based company has made this rack from chromoly, a corrosion resistant metal, and given it a tough coating to make sure it will last for years. For added insurance – the hitch comes with a lifetime warranty. When this is available on September 23rd, you can expect it to retail for $529. [Purchase]
