Rockymounts Brass Knuckles Pe Web

We couldn’t live without the RockyMounts DriveShaft thru-axel adapter than turns our Thule Peloton into a perfect MTB transporter. But now RockyMounts is stepping it up with their new low-profile upright bike rack that means we wouldn’t need to take our front wheel off at all. It’s stand up roof tray is called Brass Knuckles.

BrassKnuckles gets its name from the ergonomically shaped handle which makes the arm and wheel hook easier to pull down for efficient bike mounting. The handle includes a non-pinching trigger and RockyMounts’ “Positive Ratcheting Engagement,” which allows the wheel-hook to move in finer increments resulting in a more securely attached bike. The handle also includes the RockyMounts’ “Secure Locking System,” allowing safe transportation of your most prized possession. . . “We’re extremely excited about BrassKnuckles,” said Bruno Maier, President of RockyMounts, Inc. “Our product team has done a fantastic job of designing and engineering an innovative bike rack that is the best upright mount available. BrassKnuckles reinforces our position as an innovative and colorful company.”

The BrassKnuckle can be adjusted to work on either side of the car and will fit any kind of roof rack crossbar. And, it’s only $199.95. For the official word from RockyMounts, follow the jump. [click to continue…]
