|Anyone using these bike mounts? Both Excel and Colorado Cyclist sell the trays for $50. They seem like a good deal, but are they any good?|

|I would seriously consider them if looking for new racks and on a budget. They have the same tray (I think) as Yakima and most others. You don't get the fancy head, but they are essentially the same as old-style Yaks. I read in one of the catalogs that they are compatible with Yak lock cores. Also, the rear wheel holder with Rockys used to be just a velcro strap, which isn't as nice, but won't get stolen like the Yak ones often do. I use a similar strap cause it's easier and faster.|

|For the money, they are pretty nice. No locking fork mount, but big deal. I especially like the fact that the trays work with both Yakima (Round tube) and Thule (rectangular tube) bars. I'm a happy camper.|

|I have 3 Rocky Mounts, 2 on my car (Yakima) and 1 on my wife's car (Thule). I like the fact that I can swap between the two cars and different rack manufacturers. Simple in design, can't get too complicated with a tray, and they are affordable. They are easy to install and remove from your bars, which comes in handy with my car because its the canoe carrier. Anyway, I would recommend the Rocky Mounts.
Keep the shiny side up and the dirty side down.

|and now they even have a lockable core. Almost identical function to the more expensive Thule and Yakima models. And they come in colors if that's your thing. Plus the owner of the biz is a big cycling supporter in the Boulder area and a really nice guy.|| |
