rocky mounts tomahawk roof tray bike rack thats affordable and fits 5-inch fat bike tires

Handling everything from a narrow 23mm road tire up to a 5.0″ fat bike treat, the new RockyMounts TomaHawk’s minimalist design certainly belies its capabilities.

The TomaHawk mounts to their (or any) roof cross bars, whether they be round, square, factory or aero, and the design handles anything from 20″ to 29er. The tray’s extrusion coddles all tire widths, hold the tires to it with ratcheting straps. Two strap extensions are included to reach around the fat bike tires. The bike is held securely by the sliding hook up top, which cranks down onto the tire, ideally just against the fork. Other than that, there’s no contact with the frame.

It’s available with paired locks – one to secure it to your roof rack, the other to secure your bike inside it. You can also switch the swingarm’s mounting side, making it easier to use on both driver and passenger sides.

I wonder whether you could get the right angle for the wheel clamping hook if you slide the front crossbar attachment further forwards? Those cross bars are set really close together, which may not work well (or at all) if you want to put things other than your bike on the roof. E.g. when I carry my 5m long canoe on the roof, I need the crossbars set as far apart as possible, otherwise it’s impossible to secure. Having to move the crossbars when swapping between accessories is a pain.
