Rockymounts BackStage Swing Away 2 Bike Rack

The BackStage is the hitch mounted bike carrier we've all been waiting for. It's incredibly stable, has very generous spacing, accommodates up to 5" tyres and tilts quite far down for quick boot access.

Its most impressive feature though is the swing function, which allows you full access to the rear of your vehicle. It will easily swing out 180 degrees fully loaded, making it more versatile and user friendly than many other hitch-mounted platform racks on the market.

If you like the sound of the BackStage but need to carry more bikes then a third bike attachment known as the Monorail Add-on can be purchased separately to transform it into a three bike carrier.

The BackStage is also a great solution for carrying Downhill and Enduro bikes due to a wheel base allowance of up to 50”/1270mm, plus plenty of fork crown clearance. It's also perfect for carbon road bikes as there's no contact with the frame and it has a great locking system included.

Fitting this carrier is also straightforward but please note that it only fits 2inch hitches. 

For vehicles that have a rear mounted spare tire, a recessed hitch, or vans Rockymounts also provide the option of the Rockymounts Hitch Extension which provides an additional 8inches of clearance. To check whether your vehicle needs the extender please measure the distance from the pin-hole near the end of your hitch to your needed clearance point and check it against the Rockymounts dimensions chart below using dimension C.

Rockymounts BackStage Swing Away 2 Bike Carrier 50431 Customer Reviews

David George rated this item 5 out of 5      on Thursday, 09 December 2021
Rockymounts Backstage Swingaway by David George (09 Dec 2021) This bike rack was exactly what I needed and it works brilliantly on my Prado and Sprinter van. Easy to fit, operate and swingaway to access the rear doors easily. We carry two 20+kg e-bikes and it handles it just fine. Well built, designed and robust, with a nice locking feature. We use a cheap trailer lightboard but probably should have just got a purpose made one from the online store. Great service from the Roof Rack Store; ordered online and it arrived in record time and at the best price I could find anywhere. Very satisfied.

Rockymounts An Awesome Design Purchased the RockyMounts backstage swingaway in January 2021, and later the Rhino-Rack Lightboard and Number Plate Holder. Both were sent promptly and arrived super quick, and appreciated the free delivery as the RockyMounts rack is very heavy! Rack is fantastic and fit for purpose. We were able to pack two sets of scuba equipment, multiple surfboards, full sets of kiteboarding gear, camping equipment, plus two bikes into a Hilux. Not having to take the bikes off the car every time we wanted to get into the back was the main reason for selecting the RockyMounts, and it was ideal. My only criticism with the rack is that I think the tongue that inserts into the towbar would be better if it was a bit longer. Given the weight of it, it would strengthen the connection, but the design of this rack is awesome.

Works a treat very stable and gets well out of the way for that big back door.
