Default New bike rack: RockyMounts "AfterParty"

I just wanted to mention a relatively new bike rack in case anyone might be in the market.

The model is "AfterParty" and the brand is RockyMounts. The main feature that attracted me to this model was that it has an integrated swing arm. I know there are several great add-on arms, but they add 10" or more of extension that might not be needed.

The bikes are held by the two tires, a technique I think invented by 1Up racks. This seems really secure, and is very quick in operation. Bike heights are staggered a little to minimize handlebar interference. A seriously overkill lock is attached, and is very easy to use.

A few photos are attached. Note that the handlebars are nicely distant from the van, so no chance of a broken window!

Note: You can open the back doors with the bikes attached, but I can't quite open the passenger door far enough to engage the detent that holds it open because the handlebar just barely interferes. I can easily hold the door while I access the storage, or remove the bikes first.

looks like a nice rack. thanks for posting. if you would like to have the bikes completely out of the way, perhaps there is a front hitch receiver that could be attached to your vehicle allowing the bikes and rack to be in the front. this has always been my preference and it allows the rear hitch to be used for other things.

Looks very similar to the backstage that we have from Rocky Mount. Only difference seems to be the stagger. We also have it mounted on a Ford transit HD 350. Very pleased with the quality of the build, and the ease of how it swings out of the way to open the rear door.
