Comes setup as a dual bike rack for pick-up truck beds or inside SUVs

Delta Stableloader 2-Bike Truck Bed Mount Rack will fit pretty much any sized truck bed.  The telescoping loading bar system adjusts from 46.5 inches to 68 inches wide.

One might think the Telescoping feature could weaken the unit or allow for more wobble, but it does not seem to be an issue at all.  The mount is solid once in place.

 

Reduced slipping by means of rubber boots

The Bike Rack Telescoping bar ends have rubber boots to reduce slipping against the bed sidewalls.

 

Fork Holders are Lockable

These days it seems petty theft is through the roof.  Causal theft seems rampant.  To Deal with this possibility the Fork Holders are lockable.  As with many Bike Racks, the lockable Fork Holders locking mechanism is sold separately.

You can purchase additional Fork Holders and even wheel holders to expand the number of bikes which can be transported to 5.

Delta Stableloader 2-Bike Truck Bed Mount Rack – Pros and Cons

Pros

The setup is fairly straightforward, a telescoping bar gives these bike racks the ability to fit in truck beds or inside SUV’s.

Expansion to 5 Bikes a big plus

 

Cons

The hardware is pretty cheap, by hardware we mean the fastners, nuts and bolts.  There seems to be a real problem with the bolts to screw down the brackets tend to jam half way in the tightening sequence, and jam so severely that the bolts can neither be removed or tightened further.

The directions are very poor, easier to figure out assembly by logic.

 

Final Thoughts on the Delta Stableloader 2-Bike Truck Bed Mount Rack

This is a low cost solution for truck and SUV owners who don’t want to damage their trucks beds or SUV’s interior.

We give this a middle of the road buy recommendation primarily because of the hideous hardware which accompanies the unit.  But the simplicity of it, makes it worth the trip to the hardware store to get stainless nuts, bolts and more.
