FAQ:

Q: A: What Maintenance do I need to do?

Q: Maintenance is important to keep it working properly and to help it last longer. Apply grease to nuts, screws, bolts, and especially the adjusting nut and lever of the locking skewer. Lubricate locks with graphite. Remove the rack when not in use. Clean the rack periodically, especially in marine environments and where road salt is used. A: Does it carry all bikes?

Q: The ForkLIft carries just about any bike with a quick release wheel skewer. However, there are a few exceptions where one of our other mounts should be used instead. These exceptions include, but are not limited to, bikes with triple clamp forks and forks with dropout spacing (the distance between the forks at the tips) other than 100mm. A: How many can I carry?

Q: That depends on the bikes and vehicle. First check the Fit List to see if there are any specific limitations for your vehicle (using the online Fit List bike mounts may not be offered or a load limit will be states in the notes at the end of the process). In general, you will need about 12 inches of crossbar per bike when mounting them alternately front and rear facing. Barring any other restriction the practical limit is usually 4 bikes. A: Can I use this bike mount with a factory rack?

Q: Yes the ForkLift is designed to fit most all factory racks right out of the box. A: Why would I go with a fork mount over a “upright” style mount, or vise versa?

Q: Some like the aerodynamic look and manageability of a fork mount. Some don’t want to hassle with removing the bike’s front wheel and prefer an upright rack. A bike may have unique features (lefty or triple clamp forks, etc.) that limit bike mount choices, but one or more of our mounts will do the trick to keep your bike secure. Look up the specific bike mount for more details. A: I need to carry several bikes. Can I place bikes on the car backwards to get more space?

Q: Yes, just remember to turn the bike around before riding it. A: What if I want a longer wheelstrap for my ForkLift or FrontLoader?
