The Backstage still functions like a standard platform receiver rack. When empty you can use the front easy release lever to fold the rack up to 90°, or when loaded, can still tilt down and away 30° for quick back of vehicle access. The standard spacing between the two bike trays is 12", but you have 3" of lateral movement of each tray. For ease of use and frame damage prevention the ratcheting hooks on the pivoting upright arms hold your bikes securely by the front wheels with zero frame contact. Both front and rear wheel cradles are large enough to make use simple and easy when loading bikes. The pivoting rear wheel cradles have ratcheting straps that adjust to fit bikes of most lengths, while the extra-long wheel straps accommodate fat bike tires up to 5" wide.
Assembling the Backstage out of the box, while best done in a large open space, with a helper on hand, is actually very straightforward. Once ready, installation is quick and easy with the hand tensioning knob and anti-rattle hitch pin. You insert the extension into the receiver of your vehicle and use the hitch pin. The tighten the hand knob until the unit is tight and stable. You get a hitch lock, as well as a cable lock, which allow you to secure the rack to the vehicle and the bikes to the rack. Lock cores and keys are supplied for the lock housings. The frame construction is square steel tubing, while the bike carriers are largely aluminum, and all are powdercoated black to fight corrosion. The Backstage weighs 75lbs, so most folks will be best served having help when installing or removing.
Basically the Rocky Mounts Backstage 2-Bike Rack take everything that is great about their receiver racks, and adds the stout construction required for the swing-away feature. This is the 2" receiver rack that many riders have been dreaming of. Now you can wake up and have one.This part is universal
