Model DL2 is the original and still popular two rack bike transporter.
Weight: Lifting to stow the carrier is less than 25 pounds. The Sportworks bike rack has been designed to meet OSHA requirements for lifting by a single individual.
Finish: Our mild steel racks are finished with powder coat paint. Powder coat paint provides a durable corrosion resistant finish. Our stainless steel racks are finished with either powder coat paint or a bead blast finish. The bead blast finish is teh preferred finish, as it is not only cosmetically pleasing, but also offers a rack with anti-glare appearance while utilising an environmentally friendly process. The finish on all mounting brackets is powder coat paint.
Bracket: Sportworks has designed a multitude of mounting brackets for numerous transit vehicles. Mounting brackets typically have multiple holes for changing the height of the bike rack. This allows the installer to customise the load and approach angle height specific to the coach and in some cases specific to particular transit routes.
Construction: The bike racks are produced in two sizes; length and width dimensions of our original carrier (excluding mounting brackets) are 66 inches x 27 inches, while those for the narrow profile rack are 54 inches x 26 inches. There are a minimum number of parts, keeping the rack simple to understand and easy to maintain.
