Rockymounts started with an extruded aluminum tray, added the front wheel control swingarm (which can be moved from side to side depending on which side of the car it is mounted), and the front and real wheel straps to keep your bike mounted safely. By adding Lock Cores (2 pack required for each carrier), you can secure the carrier to a crossbar and the bike to the carrier. An easy-to-grip handle with push button operation on the front wheel hook of the swingarm. It is true you need to get up high-enough to set the bike and secure the front wheel, but depending on the height of the vehicle and size of the user, the operation is usually manageable with one person. The convenience is that you put your complete bike on the roof crossbar system, no need to wedge it into your car, or remove and store a wheel. Load, secure, drive, unload, ride, etc. It is very convenient in most applications, and when the Tomahawk is properly installed and used, very safe and secure.
Here are the key details: there is no bike frame contact - simply ratchet the hook over the front wheel and secure the front/rear wheelstraps; Easy-Load wheel straps make loading bikes easier than ever; wheel strap extensions are included for fat bike and other oversized tires up to 5". Rockymounts anodized the aluminum parts, and uses powdercoat on steel; with both treatments protecting against corrosion. The durable resin composite body of the swingarm base strong and stable at all times. If you are looking for the most versatile, best made upright mount, roof rack bike carrier, Rockymounts highly recommend the TomaHawk Bike Mount.
RockyMounts® calls this outdoor adventure paradise home. Company evolved from the need to offer outdoor enthusiasts and professional athletes a higher quality product to transport gear to their next big ride or backcountry adventure. In 1993, founder Bobby Noyes ventured from New Jersey to Colorado to feed his addiction to bicycling. Recognizing the need for a better bike racks, he set up shop and began producing bike racks by hand. Those first racks, which were sold out of the back of his truck, became a huge hit locally and quickly made their way across the United States. Today, RockyMounts offers a full lineup of bike, ski, and cargo racks. RockyMounts innovative and high quality designs will get your prized possessions to your destination safely and with style. Twenty years after RockyMounts start, and still locally owned in Boulder, we’re stoked to support the outdoor culture that sets us back to RockyMounts roots. RockyMounts still remember what it’s like to be an aspiring cyclist, ski bum, climber , etc. – which is why quality, innovation, and stellar pricing come easy to us. The bottom line: you’re in good company with us if your bike costs more than your car, your skis are your significant other, or you own more climbing and camping gear than you do furniture. No one has ever been this stoked to carry your stuff.
