I took a risk buying the rockymount rack, I had not heard of this brand befor. After the easy install (10-15min) and fitting it to my bike it was instantly obvious that this rack was far superior to the more expensive Thule rack of the same style. The rocky mount has a more solid feel to it with virtually no sway or wobble of your bike when mounted. The rack, fork mount, and securing system are all sturdy metal. Unlike the Thule racks of $20+ more with their flimsy u bolt style mount and plastic fork mount housing and soda can thin tray.
I also installed a lock in my rocky mount, this was an additional 10-20 mins due to me using a Thule lock cylinder. Had it been a lock cylinder from rocky mount this process would have been under 5min. But with a few min of basic lock smithing I kept all of my keys for my rack and accessories keyed the same.
Over all I have yet to find anything negative to say about this companies products. They seem to be built military tough, with instructions that any one who can color within the lines can understand.
I only wish I had purchased one in a cool color... Maybe for my next rack I'll order one in a fun color.
BUY THIS RACK
