Coming late next spring is an update to Inno Racks’ Tire Hold upright, tray-style hitch mount bike rack. Available in 1-, 2- and 4-bike configurations, it gets easier adjustments to fit all those bikes next to each other…and plus sized MTB tires.
The Tire Hold rack is designed to sandwich your bike into place touching only the tires. We reviewed it a while back and liked how simple it was to get the bikes on without anything touching the frame, rotors or rims.
For 2018, it gets an easier release handle located at the back of the spine, especially helpful as you add more bikes and trays to the 2″-only hitch mount. The trays themselves get new quick-release adjustments to slide left or right, preventing those odd handlebar-to-saddle interactions that keep your bikes from playing nice together. Even the hoop on the top of the arms is easier to move up or down, making it much quicker to adjust for wheel and tire size (from kids bikes to 29+) than before.
Retail is $299 for a single bike, $499 for the two-bike, and $399 for the extra 2-bike add-on. Includes cable, lock and keys. Look for it in May 2018.
Shown as a prototype, this nifty side-mounted arm grabs your fork leg and seatstay to hold your bike upright in a truck bed. The base clamps to the side wall either directly…
…or with their adapters, which can also be used to mount cross-bar attachment points. Depending on which brand truck you have, you may or may not need the adapters. More details to come later on these, they’re a work in progress.
