I guess I should be happy it worked. But the unit is very limited. The clamps don't like larger diameter forks, they will rub wear marks on your fork leg. There's no height adjustment to compensate for different style bikes. They work right on traditional hardtail bikes. All other bikes it's hit or miss on weather you can use both clamps on one bike. Maybe a more adjustable version would be a good product to offer.

I bought the RT201 for a standard Tundra bed. They fit secure and hold the bike super secure. I love the fact that I don't have to remove the front wheel. I also have bikes with a 20mm, a 15mm and 9mm axles so a fork mount type bike rack would have been very difficult to fit all the different axle standards. Not to mention when I need to carry a friends bike. I have two sets of the RT201's. A third bike can be mounted with standard tie downs if needed.

Unfortunately, you sent me the wrong type! Since I don't know if I made the mistake or you did, I am trying to modify the c track style you sent to fit my standard style dodge truck. I love the product, just was sent the wrong model.

Overall a good rack, holds bikes securely and easy to mount. Would be better if you could mount to track without removing end caps as I had to remove ladder racks to put backing pieces in track. Also a longer rod or extension would be great as it just reaches bike around fender bump out based on where I have to mount due to other racks already on truck.

Mounted on 2012 Nissan Titan. Easy to install and easy to use. I bought 2 racks for when one other family member or friends want to go for a ride. Much quicker than using my 4 bike receptacle hitch mount bike rack. Bikes stay steady in transport. I would definitely recommend to others.

I have a Toyota Tacoma with a channel type side rails. The INNO Velo Gripper I got is the model designed for such rails and it easily slides in with no problems. It fits precisely and securely. Installation literally took me about 10 minutes. It is adjustable so it can fit any size bike. I couldn't be happier.

I have had this now for a few months and it seems well made and rugged enough for me to take my mountain bike on rugged dirt roads without any slippage in the bike rack. A bike won't fit in the bed while in the bike rack without taking the front tire off. However I do have a Leer cap on it. Without the cap it may fit. Either way this is a quality unit and take up very little space, when I take off the attachment arms. Would buy again. You'll be glad you bought these.

I bought the gripper in order to take my bicycle ~400 miles to a rendezvous point for a Rochester-to-Niagra Falls group trip largely via Erie Canal pathway. Due to the configuration of my truck bed's tonneau cover mounting, I had to make some adaptations by eliminating the use of the black angle plates and adding some 1/4" thick aluminum flat stock in the bed-length groove to provide a flat top surface for the grippers. Otherwise, there were no incidents at all with transporting the bike.

1997 Chevy S10 Pickup
The product description and reviews mention "standard" pickup beds. I have a '97 Chevy S10 without a bedliner. Will this product fit this smaller-than-standard pickup?

Thank you. My new bike arrives from Amazon this week and I'm anxious to take it to the bike paths in Knoxville and Townsend. Just the product I need and thanks for the answer. I will be purchasing one. Your price is also better than Amazon!flag Accept Answer

The product will work with your truck. Standard truck bed refers to the side wall having a lip over. Some trucks like the Toyota Tundra and Tacoma are using the new C-Chanel strips on the side wall. We have a product for both. Please do not hesiate to contact Innoracks.com for any further questions.flag Accept Answer
