2012 Mini Countryman Racked Out

13 03 2013

This Mini is set up to carry anything you may need.  We started with a Thule Aeroblade system composed of the 460R Rapid Podium Towers, Fitkit 4020 and a pair of 47″ Aeroblade load bars.  This system attaches to the factory installed flush mounted siderails.  Using the Aeroblade bars we are getting the highest weight capacity and the most aerodynamic option.

     To this base we added a couple of Rocky Mount Euro Pitchforks to carry the bikes.  The Euro Pitchfork mounts flush to the Aeroblade load bars and come in a whole rainbow of colors to match your ride.  The low profile design of this bike rack accommodates any style of bike you have.  If you have Thru-Axles on your fork, Rocky Mounts has you covered with the Driveshaft fork adapter.  Between the bike carriers we added the Yakima LoadWarrior to handle all the other gear you have to take along.  The LoadWarrior also has a ton of accessory options to add to it as well.  You can add the LoadWarrior Extension which will give you 18″ more space, cargo nets to hold everything down.  If you need to attach your Axe, Shovel, Hi-Lift Jack or Spare Tire there are also brackets for that.  Lights and locks are also another great add-on to the basket.

Custom Yakima Hitch Mounted Wheelchair Carrier

16 04 2011

This idea came from a customer’s need of transporting her wheelchair, but wanted something more stable than a tray on a hitch with bungees.  We started with the Yakima Hold-up 1.25″  hitch mounted bike carrier.

We modified this by flipping the rear bike tray so that the 2 trays are facing the same direction.  Next, I removed the hook used for retaining bikes and discarded it.  The chair is secured with the ratchet straps in the wheel hoops, and 1 hook over the armrest area of the chair.  The hoops for the front wheels were folded back against the footrests and secured with a tiedown strap.  This has turned out to be an easy to use great functioning system for our customer.

Thule 916 T2 Bike rack

15 04 2009

The Thule 916 T2 Bike Rack  is a great solution for those who want to carry their bikes with a rack that does not make contact with the bike frame. The way this works is that you set your bike in wheel trays and there is an arm that grabs down on the front wheel in front of the bike fork.  The boke rack will carry 2 bikes or you can add-on the Thule 918 Add-On to carry a total of 4 bikes.

You can add some theft prevention security to the rack by adding lock cores into the arms which will then lock down onto the tires they are holding. You also have the option of adding Thules STL2 lock, which locks the bike rack to your vehicles hitch. The THule 916 T2 is designed to work with vehicles that have a Class III – 2 ” hitch receiver, however the Thule 917 T2 will work fo Class II- 1 1/4″ hitches. The 917 T2 will carry a total of 2 bikes and does not have the add-on option. Visit Rackattack.com for more info.





Acura TL Hitch and Bike Rack

25 03 2009

Acura TL hitch rackThe Acura TL allows for a hitch receiver to be bolted to the underside of the trunk. The hitch requires two holes to be drilled through the bottom of the trunk in order for the hitch to be bolted to the vehicle. Installation is rather simple and can be done in about an hour. With this hitch you can tow a maximum of 2,000 lbs or in this case carry 2 bikes with a tongue weight capacity of 200lbs. On this application we attached a Thule Roadway 2 bike rack. This bike rack accommodates mountain and road bikes.
