Leading innovator in customizable rack systems unveils upright fat-bike kit at Interbike.
LAS VEGAS, NV (September 10, 2013) – Innovative car-rack systems manufacturer RockyMounts today unveiled the Fattie, an adaptor kit for its popular BrassKnuckles, allowing the low-profile upright rack to accommodate fat bikes.
“BrassKnuckles was designed to fit any kind of crossbar, accommodate nearly any bike—regardless of front-axle size—and fold down to a profile height less than half that of the competition,” said said Bruno Maier, President of RockyMounts, Inc. “The only piece missing from that puzzle was the fat bike. With the addition of the Fattie, the BrassKnuckles truly is the most versatile and low-profile upright rack on the market.”
The kit includes a fat-bike wheel chock that can be easily interchanged with the standard wheel chock depending on which bike the user is transporting, and front and rear wheel strap extenders to accommodate fat bikes. The kit will retail for $19.95 and be available at fine retailers nationwide, in RockyMounts’ Boulder, CO, showroom and on RockyMounts.com beginning October 2014.

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.
Designed to be versatile, BrassKnuckles will handle everything from the burliest downhill rigs to road bikes, 29ers to 20-inch wheels, and comes with patented form fitting universal mounting hardware to fit any style of crossbar. Engineered using the highest quality materials and designed to be the most aerodynamic upright mount on the market, the BrassKnuckles is crafted from non-corrosive aluminum and features a pivoting arm assembly integrated into the wheel tray and mounting head to provide a low profile, giving the product a stealthy look that enhances the user’s vehicle, and reduced drag to increase fuel efficiency. The innovative pivoting arm has also been engineered to allow for efficient driver-side or passenger-side installation, saving both retail partners and customers time and money.
