I purchased this rack a few weeks ago and I'm very pleased with the quality and function. It is light, easy to use and seems to be made very well. I especially like how it carries the bike higher on my vehicle compared to other racks I have seen. The tilt feature with the bike on the rack is great. I would recommend though that you are careful with the blue handle when folding up the rack on your vehicle. A couple of times the blue handle pinched my fingers when I wasn't watching what I was doing because the handle travels in a cut out on the rack and it is easy for it to not fit in when pulling it. Just pay attention and you'll be fine. Great job of building a great rack!
This rack is perfect. If you only have one bike to haul around and don’t like having your bike up on the roof, this is the rack for you. The lock system is so simple and easy. The tilt is smooth as butter and adjusting it is even smoother with the handle being so accessible. I highly recommend this rack.
I live mere feet from hundreds of miles of trails. I also own an SUV. For years never needed a rack; the few times my 29er needed transporting I simply took the front wheel off and backed the bike in. Then I started transporting my bike across town twice weekly to help a group of beginners learn the sport. Doing the wheel off/back in/deal with dirty bike/back of SUVfull/can't haul more than 1 passenger got old. Researched the usual options and went with the MonoRail Solo. Reasons: lifetime warranty, simple installation, bike held firmly and securely, came with two locks and a big cable. Let's be real: a good thief will cut through any lock, my friends can attest to that, but as a deterrent the included cable and locks are very nice. There is no wobble and the tilt feature is priceless. The SUV hatch opens with the bike on, and the tilt handle is easy to grab and use. My friend's other rack tilt handle is a pain to grasp. I also like the diminutive size and color. Didn't want a giant long industrial looking rack hanging off the back. Purchased mine on sale. Highly recommend; in fact, I recommended RockyMount's swingaway hitch rack to a truck buddy.
The Monorail Solo is all I expected from rockymounts, and more. I travel a fair amount in my 4X4 Mercedes Sprinter and have wanted a quality, sturdy, well-designed and well-built hitch rack for one. The Monorail Solo is by far the best I've found, and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.
I live outside of Atlanta and drive most of the way to work. I do not want to pay parking in town, so park outside of town and ride the last few miles on my bike. I was looking for a platform rack to carry one bike that was compact and easy to use. This rack fits snugly against the car and carries my specialized globe really well. I had to wait a while for it, which is why i gave it 4 stars, other than that it is 5 star. It was hard to find a good quality one bike rack, and they told me if i ever want to add a second bike mount, it is easy to expand it.
