ALTA Racks carry up to 6 bikes, accessories, and may work as a mobile base camp – Bike Rumor

"Thanks to the huge variation of bikes out there, we ask a lot from our bike racks. They need to fit everything from 20mm to 5″ wide tires, frames of vastly different shape, and all without interference between multiple bikes. Because of that, most racks top out at...

Alta Racks, Alta Six GPR Bike Rack – Mountain Biking with Kids

"We have been through our share of bike racks, so when we got the opportunity to demo the Alta Six GPR (general purpose rack) from Alta Racks, we had some high hopes. To qualify our expectations, here’s our family’s history of bike racks… Phase One, Pre-Kids: No bike...

The rack is perfectly suited for a high clearance 4x4 off road vehicle. It Works with our 96 Toyota Land Cruiser clam shell style rear hatch. It's pretty stout and heavier than its competitor but we needed the higher clearance of the rack that the Alta provides. We are running a 4 basket carrier system and just drove over 5 hours to Moab for camping and took a long washboard road and found one of the tire baskets rubbed the sidewall causing thinning to the front tire. I wish it had an anterior loop on the vertical bar to wrap a chain through to lock the bikes up. There is a bolt on the front side of the arm mechanism that requires additional hardware to remove it in order to fully extend the bike rack away from the rear hatch. Without it fully extended down I have found that I hit my legs on the butterfly bolts protruding from the bottom rail that attaches the rear tire. So far we like the rack but wish there was an easier way to fully extend it down for use when camping.

Very well made! Best rack I’ve seen that can hold 6 bikes. The rack has been serving me well all summer. I highly recommend these racks.

This rack is awesome. It's super stable and genuinely (easily) fits 6 bikes with no rubbing. The best part of the Alta Six is that it clears the tailgate of my Tacoma easily (even in the vertical position), so it's never in the way.

I recently purchased/found the rack by accident! I was going to buy a Recon but they were out of stock. The owner of Alta said “nothing is by accident” you will love our rack. It’s pretty nice. Holds downhill bikes, fatbikes, small bikes! My family is a cycling family. We own 14 bikes and we needed a versatile rack. This is it. I had some questions and concerns and the owner personally answered all my questions via phone. I was missing a strap and he promptly got it to me. I offered some suggestions for minor improvements and he said he loved the feedback. Being involved in a family business myself I like to support the small guy. The owner was great to deal with and he did everything he said he would. There are other shuttle style racks with reports of the bikes hitting the pavement. NOT A CHANCE WITH THIS RACK! It has multiple failsafes in the rack. Who wants 30k hitting the black top, I sure don’t! Ali, this is Jim - we spoke yesterday. Two thumbs up!

Used this rack in southern UT for a weekend. Camped out on Gooseberry Mesa. My buddy was able to keep his Tepui tent on his truck with this rack and we could also drop the tailgate. That made life at camp so easy. We carried a combo of 2 bike and 4 bikes when we met up with friends and they were rock solid. We drove down the Grafton road from Gooseberry and even on the washboard the bikes hung in there great.

We just got back from Moab with the Alta Six on our Tacoma with a camper shell. I am sold! Being able to leave the bikes on while unloading the truck/putting dogs in and out is pure bliss. No damage to the tailgate and the bikes stay solid. Thanks, Alta Racks ��

I've owned a lot of racks and this one by far provides best access to back of your rig and carries the most bikes safely. Not to mention its bomber...and Ali is legit and a pleasure to work with. Get one!

Everywhere I go, people stop me to ask where I got my bike rack. Nothing compares to this quality. It is solid and it, along with the bikes, do not move at all while I am driving. I have looked forever for a bike rack that could hold 6 bikes, and nothing else accommodated what I was looking for. They put a lot of thought into every detail of this bike rack and went above and beyond when helping me get this. It’s also nice because you don’t need to have 6 bikes on it all the time.

I purchased my rack about six months ago and I couldn't be more impressed with the way it functions and the numerous features. I normally carry six bikes but I also have two fat bikes and the two extra baskets makes it super easy to swap out. I love that I can drop my tail gate and get into the bed of my truck and when I use the rack on my minivan I can also open my back door. Customer service was amazing through Alta Racks from the initial purchase to delivery. Assembly was super easy, taking about 20 minutes, plus I love that there is no proprietary hardware. My opinion, best rack out there. You won't be disappointed.

The best bike rack I've used in over 30 years! I got this Alta Six rack to replace my Saris Freedom 4 rack and Yakima 2 tray hitch rack. IT HOLDS SIX BIKES!! I love everything about this rack. So nice that I leave it on for 8 months of the year and its not in the way like most hitch racks.. Plenty of clearance on my Tacoma to open shell and tailgate with the bikes on. Its also out of the way enough that we can camp out in back of truck, get in and out with bikes on. The only reason I've had to take off is if I had to put a 4'x8' sheet of wood in the back of truck. Sits high enough that I won't be hitting deep dips or rocks. Fits all my road bikes, big hit freeride bikes and even kids bikes with no problem. I know it has attachments for fat bikes which I have not used yet. Bikes load very easily with just putting the front wheel in the basket, then using the included Voile style straps to secure front and rear ties(can be done with one hand). There is a tilting option to make the bikes load even easier, but I tend to not use it . Might make easier for somebody shorter or for somebody who has a hard time lifting bikes straight up Rack is very solid on bumpy roads with an option to use tie downs if you're running six bikes and want little to no movement. I love the ability to carry six bikes, or just a few bikes with plenty of space in between I have tried the North Shore racks but did not like that it directly made contact with my fork and would not fit my road bike or kids bikes. There are some sweet accessories available like a bike work stand, table and even a hammock which I have not used yet. Overall, solid construction, well thought out, easy to use and I already cant imagine using my old racks again. This is the rack I've needed and been waiting for all my life. THANKS ALTA RACKS!!
