Your mom may have told you never to take your toys out of the yard, but that rule only applies to Tonka trucks—not to trail-thrashing mountain bikes and street demon road racers. Traveling around with your two-wheeler lets you explore new routes, conquer new challenges and push your abilities to their limit. But, you have to get there first, and the versatile RockyMounts TieRod Bike Rack gets you there in style.
One look at the RockyMounts TieRod Bike Rack, and you half expect it to be in a museum. It’s sleek stature, aerodynamic lines and vibrant colors give it a look that stands out on the road. Beyond its boss appearance, though, the RockyMounts TieRod is made for bike-hauling action. Its sturdy aluminum construction, quick-release skewer and optional locks hold your bicycle firmly in place, ensuring that it reaches the trailhead in one piece. Plus, the tray is wide enough to handle both svelte track and fatty mountain bike tires.
Best of all, the RockyMounts TieRod Bike Rack is designed to fit where traditional roof bike carriers can’t: on factory crossbars. Thanks to its rubber-lined stainless steel straps, it tightens down and conforms to the shape of 100% of factory crossbars for a grip that won’t quit. And, it comes with a 1-year warranty.

I have a Toyota FJ Cruiser with a roof rack that many mounts cannot fit. These RockyMounts not only fit the odd configuration, but are very easy to install and very easy to mount your bikes regardless of size. And they hold with Herculean strength. Build quality of the product is fantastic also!

I did a lot of research before purchasing this rockymount tierod I have. GMC Terrain with factory roof bars, most bike mounts wouldn't fit on the shape bars I have, this tierod was one of a ew that did. The only issue I had was that after installing it on my factory bars the tierod was to long and I couldn't open my tail gate. I installed my bike and just cut off about 4" of the tierod and reinstalled the end cap and now no issues. DON'T FORGET THE LOCKS! Can't leave your bike without them!
