Without the right accessories, going mountain biking with a group of buddies can be an arduous task with limited car space. With the right racks from RockyMounts, you can travel from home to the mountains with ease.
RockyMounts Pitchfork Roof Rack
Carry your full suspension trail bike or your cross-country race bike on the roof of your car so you have space for your pals to sit in the back seat.
The Pitchfork is so easy to use! One flick of the quick release on your front fork releases the front tire of your bike, which you can easily stash in the back of your car. Your front fork drops right into the axle on the Pitchfork and it's locking mechanism keeps your bike safe and secure when you aren't riding it. The back wheel stays in place on the track with a ratchet strap that goes right over the rear rim and the rack can hold bikes with disc or rim brakes. The Pitchfork comes in 9 different colors and is designed to be compatible with any round Yakima or square Thule crossbars. If you have factory bars on your car, you'll want to purchase the TieRod rack (same rack, different attachment system).

RockyMounts JawBridge Roof Rack
Carry your freeride or downhill rig up to the mountains without having to take off the front wheel or putting the whole bike in the trunk.
The JawBridge is a great choice for anyone with a big downhill bike or any fork with a thru-axle, because the JawBridge allows you to throw the entire bike on the roof with both wheels still on. Once you get your bike up onto the roof and the wheels fall into the track, the swing arm glides right up to meet your bottom tube, and the rubberized clamp jaws lock the bike in place. Two ratchet straps click into place over each rim, and the RockyMounts lock cores make sure your bike isn't leaving your roof until you decide to take it off.
