Loading bikes onto a platform-style bike rack is a lot easier than hoisting them up onto a rooftop carrier. There's just one problem: the steaming-hot exhaust fumes blowing out of your exhaust can melt rubber, discolor paint jobs and leave your saddle smelling like sulfur. If your two-wheelers are too close to your tailpipe, put some distance between them with the ROLA Bike Shank Adapter.

Better than re-plumbing your entire exhaust system, the ROLA Bike Bicycle Shank Adapter repositions your rack up and away from your tailpipe. It delivers a full 6" of lift—enough to protect your cycle from being blasted by hot gases but not so much that it makes it hard to rack up. So, both your bikes and your back benefit. And if your auto rides close to the ground, you won't have to worry about scraping your cycles on speed bumps, driveways and other asphalt obstacles.

Built to go the distance, your ROLA Bike Rack Spacer is constructed from mild steel and sized to fit 1.25" receivers. It pairs perfectly with 1.25" ROLA racks, including the NV2, SportWing, and more. Plus, it comes complete with a hitch pin, clip and 1-year warranty.

This is just the ticket to get your bike rack off the ground to allow clearance from the road.

Answer to a problem!

The Rola Bike Rack Shank has solved the problem I was having when ever I took my bike on trips. Because my exhaust blows straight out, it has on more than one occasion to melt my tire, inner tube and rim. I inquired about exhaust tips at a muffler shop that would redirect the exhaust downward or away from the car but was told that wasn't feasible as the exhaust sits too close to the car. A new exhaust system. Is too costly. The shank rises the bike rack up and away from the exhaust.
