The Lolo Racks RAD LAD is a bike rack kit for the handy do-it-yourselfer to carry 2 bikes on your rear van ladder.
This gives you a solid set up that moves with your rear door so you don't need a swingout or other gizmos to have van door access. Securing the bike is fast and easy compared to tray racks (and half the price and complexity)!
This is the best bike rack system for your van when it comes to ease of use and compact size.
The first rear barn door will normally open without bar or rack interference. The second door will open to the 90 degree stop or further without interference.
Just like all other Lolo Racks, this rack will carry mountain bikes, road bikes*, city bikes with fenders, kids bikes of any size and fat bikes. Works with Ebikes under 50 pounds.
Works great with the Flatline Van rear cargo system. See photo below.
*Dropper seat posts or quick release seat posts recommended.
This kit is not vehicle or ladder specific and may require bolt trimming in some cases.
This is for the do-it-yourself type person with some assembly skills. Some minor fabrication might be needed since this is a universal kit.
LADDER NOT INCLUDED. We recommend a Flat Line Van Co, PRIME DESIGNS or similarly beefy ladder. Also works with tubular reinforced cargo system.
