Shingleback Vertical Bike Rack Reviews

Check out what our awesome customers have to say!

Peter Leonard

First purchase from Shingleback. We bought the four bike rack, and it has opened another avenue for us. Practical, well designed, and simple to use. We love it. Used twice already in week 1. It is at the top end price wise, but I would not buy anything else now. So easy to load up and go. I can’t recommend this product highly enough. Fantastic.

Katja Schoenfelder

Our Shingleback rack has made our family bike trip to Tasmania even better! So easy to use! Customer service is outstanding. Thumbs up from us. 😊

Merryn Gibbons

Great racks. Really strong and versatile. Love that you can get the floor mount. Makes for very flexible and orderly storage. And love that it’s Australian Made!

Brad Enright

The best 5 bike rack on the market! Did my research and although many racks advertise 5 bike capacity, good luck getting 5 full size bikes to fit. High quality build and fantastic customer service. The courier delivered our rack to the wrong address so Kimberley personally delivered another rack to our door in Melbourne so we would have it in time for our holiday! Thanks Shingleback!

Daniel Faccio

Very good product, I have the 5 bike system. It works a very well….good to see Australian Designed and Made

William Bryceson

I’ve had several bike racks over the years and these are the best. Fits 5 mountain bikes, quick and easy to load/ unload. Job done.

Brendan Harrap

Great bike rack.  It’s easy to put on and take off the car.  It’s super quick to put the bikes on and off the rack itself. Would highly recommend.

David Ebsworth

Purchased 4 rack. Best bike rack going around that I have used. High clearance for going off road to stop bikes from getting dragged and damaged. Fantastic build quality to stop bikes from moving around while in transit. Have had 5 people ask about it just over the past weekend and couldn’t recommend them more highly. Can load bikes, secure and be going out the driveway in under a minute, not able to do that with a lot of other racks on the market. The Shingleback team were honest and a pleasure to deal with. Very fast delivery. Made in Australia 🐨. Great job 👍.

Cameron Denny

The service I received from Shingleback was great. The product arrived really fast and was really well packaged. As for the rack itself, the quality was above what I expected and it comfortably holds mine and my mates e bikes. It’s great to see such great products being designed and built in Australia. I highly recommend this company. They also have great after sales service. Thanks a lot Shingleback off-road!

Tom Meredith

Fantastic, well built bike rack. The customer service at Shingleback can’t be beaten, they went above and beyond to get my order to me quickly.

Phil Yeadon

Hi guys, we just bought a 4 bike rack and trolley stand and love it. We had about 5 families looking or asking about it on the weekend. Certain we got you at least 2 more sales 😊Just the ease of getting bikes on and off is worth the money. So good. Having the trolley as a bike storage solution was a massive

Mark Reid

Phil was easy to deal with. The product reflected exactly what he discussed with me. Quick freight.
Easy instructions. Quality product. Could not have asked for more.

Tim Hall

Great product works perfectly as we have 4 kids it was hard finding a rack that had 6 bikes.

Hayden Crouch

Great product and service. Our 5 bike rack is very easy to load. looks and fells like it will last forever. Love the simplicity, we’ve used it every weekend since it was delivered just a couple of days after the order was placed. Trolley is a worthwhile addition to easily move and store the rack. The team at Shingleback have gone above and beyond to answer our pre-purchase queries and help out with resolving an issue with minor damage during transit. Would recommend to anyone looking for a durable solution to safely transport multiple bikes.

Tim Phillips

Australian made and engineered vertical bike transport system at its best. Liking the new swing arm addition to current 4 bike rack configuration.

Totally Stoked!! The quality of this product is exceptional. It traveled some 1600km to us & arrived well packaged & in perfect condition. Totally transformed our family cycling adventures from time consuming Tetris to quick & easy. More time drinking coffee & riding trails. Thanks for being awesome Shingleback.

Jarrad Hewitt

Great Aussie product, ridiculously easy to mount bikes. Stainless hardware and thick powder coating on the frame, will have to wait and see how long the Bungy chord lasts with the bike rack permanently mounted on the back of the 4wd.

Marshall Cox

Love our 4 bike rack, arrived really quickly, terrific build quality, super easy to load the bikes on and off.

Dave Foster

We bought a 4 bike carrier primarily for our lap of Australia after extensive research and on two friends recommendation. It was the only bike carrier I found to be warranted off-road and for use on a caravan. We have driven 15,000km + including some corrugated dirt roads (one friend broke there axle) and it has performed faultlessly. It is strong, quick and easy to load and unload and keeps the bikes much cleaner then other friends racks mounted on the rear of their caravans. I have taken off the caravan and used it in the car which is 2 bolts and 5 minutes work. We have bikes with 20”, 24” and 26” tyres and no rubbing between any of the bikes. We have been stopped often and asked about the rack and I highly recommended it to everyone I meet.

Justin Quinn

I can’t rate Shingleback highly enough. They made special arrangements to get my order to me as soon as possible. I had some difficulties with the courier company which were in no way attributable to Shingleback. Kimberley at Shingleback took control and sorted everything out for me. Don’t hesitate to buy from them.The racks are really well engineered.

Chris Ali

We had a trailer built last year for our mountain bike fleet. Incredibly well built and well designed trailer. Great having the storage cage in the middle for students bags and gear. Just picked up a second trailer so we now have a trailer and bike fleet at each campus. the second one improves on the design of the first. The new trailer is built around a custom lockable box trailer with the bike rack on the front and the back. The best bit is that the bike racks are removable and can be used individually as bike racks that mount directly to the tow bar, and the trailer can be used as a sealed lockable box trailer without the bike racks installed. So essentially we have 2x bike racks and box trailer. Such a good flexible design. Andrew will work with you to design exactly what you want out of the trailer, just ask!!

Sally Huguenin

The Shingleback Off Road 5 bike rack has changed the way our family gets around. Such a clever, easy to use design and with the addition of a special attachment for our caravan we can now easily switch our rack between the car and caravan when away on holidays. Awesome service & great Australian-made products!

David Ducker

Amazing rack, this has made shuttling an absolute dream! We had the Yakima hangover 4 before this but, putting aside the fact that design flaws with the Yakima product meant a bike fell off it and did $1000 worth of damage, the Shingleback is so much easier and quicker to load/unload bikes and the anti-rattle device works so well to keep things quiet and secure. I’ve also used other, similar style racks before like North Shore but the design and build quality of Shingleback beats everything hands down. Also great to see Shingleback trailers being used by Blue Dirt now which speaks volumes.

Frank Toman

The crew at Shingleback managed to deliver me a rack (all the way to Hobart) in time for the school holidays despite giving them not much notice. Communication was also excellent … every question and email quickly answered. Their customer service is great … and very appreciated.

John Schulz

We’ve had our Shingleback 5 bike rack for 18mths now, driven thousands of kilometres, and shuttled the roughest of access roads. We carry an array of different bikes, small to extra large frames, 27” wheels to 29ers, enduro, cross country and e-mountain bikes and never have any of our bikes been compromised. The rack is so easy to load, everyone (including the kids!) can load their own bikes and unload. We usually leave the rack on, as the swing arm makes getting into back of the Ute a breeze and it makes no difference to the drive. When we do need to remove it, it’s a 2 minute easy process, the same goes for putting it back on. We’ve seen and used a lot of other racks, but none come close to the Shingleback for ease of use, or keeping our bikes safe and secure.

Rayno Raats

Very sturdy and well built rack. Ordered over the weekend and received the rack by Thursday in Perth, really happy overall. One small criticism is the bolts used on the tow bar mount needs a large Allen Key to tighten properly which I will need to buy seperate.

Tony Chalkley

This is beautifully designed unit (I got the 6 bike model) that is extremely well welded and the finishing detail is very good. It was fun to put together (simple, but very logical, A bit heavy, but easy for two adults to handle) and fits like a glove on my Kia Grand Carnival.

Marina Murray

Kimberly and the Shingleback team provided excellent communication and customer service throughout the process of ordering our bike rack. We are so happy with our rack having gone with a 5 rack with a swing arm and floor stand for the shed. I’d started seeing these around in MTB car parks over the last year and now that we have one on the back of our car, it makes getting our families bikes to where we want them to go a breeze. Thank you guys! I can definitely recommend them. Easy to assemble, easy to fit, easy to load/unload bikes. Cheers Paul and Marina

Andrew Corcoran

We have had our 5 bike shingleback for just over a year. We love it, it’s so easy to get the bikes on and off. We ride more often now and my wife loves that she can lift her bike and the kids bikes off easily compared to our roof top bike rack.

Ben Rossignuolo

My Shingleback 4 rack is amazing. Easy to set up and even easier to put the bikes on. It even takes the kids bikes without having to adjust anything. Family weekend bike rides are now more common thanks to my Shingleback rack!

Felixa Boyd

What an awesome rack!!! So easy to load and unload leaving more time for riding!!!! No time wasted trying to work out best way to fit all 5 bikes without damaging them!! Absolutely love it.. ordered and received it the next day!!!! Amazing!! Would definitely recommend! 👍🏻👍🏻

Robert Dickie

We are so happy with our Shingleback rack. It is so easy to get our bikes on and off the rack, and hanging them vertically means we don’t have the hassle of having to get other bikes off if only two of the four of us want to ride.
Fantastic design and exceptional service. No wonder we are seeing more of them around. Good work guys.

Kerrie Lalor

We are so happy with our Shingleback rack. It is so easy to get our bikes on and off the rack, and hanging them vertically means we don’t have the hassle of having to get other bikes off if only two of the four of us want to ride. Fantastic design and exceptional service. No wonder we are seeing more of them around. Good work guys.

Our young lads have chosen their main sport as Mountain Biking. Be it shuttling them on weekends in NE Vic or around the country when they have been competing elsewhere, the shingleback has been great, it’s given us so much more space in the ute.

We previously put the bikes in the tub of our ute with a shuttle pad and packed our gear around the bikes. Now with the shingleback it has given us that space back and we can keep everything secure and weatherproof again.

The shingleback is so easy to attach to the tow bar and release when we get back home. It is engineered well and does not sway, even with a full load of bikes. Even on rough shuttle roads I feel the bikes are very secure. The bungee straps make it a breeze for all of us to secure the bikes in the rack easily and get them off quickly to hit the trails.

Whether it be a run shuttling the boys locally or a long haul trip away, the shingleback has been the best choice for us to easily and securely transport our Mountain Bikes around Australia. This is hands down the best rack on the market and I highly recommend it! Great customer service and down to earth support.

Anna Mackinlay

This rack is fantastic. I can now take bikes anywhere, very easily. It’s easy to use in every way. One thing I really like about the rack is that I can lift the bikes on in a way that is safe for my back. Worth a the investment, highly recommend.

Aisha Spokes

We purchased the 5 bike rack. We had been researching for a long time and nothing seemed to meet my husband’s expectations, they were all lacking in some way, except the shingleback rack. We loved that it’s only the wheels that touch the rack, so no worries about damage to forks or frame. And it is so easy and quick to load and unload, unlike many racks that you have to fiddle around with several brackets and straps to secure the bikes to the frame. It’s well made and perfect for the job, worth the price tag. Thanks for making such a great product.

Jesse Maxwell

Coming from a Northshore rack, the Shingleback is a hell of a lot better due to the fact no part of the rack touches your bike. The Shingleback is also faster and easier to load than a Northshore. I live in Tasmania and had my rack delivered, it was at my doorstep 3 days after placing the order.

Jason

Researched product and extremely happy with my decision. Easy to install and so easy to attach bikes. Would highly recommend.

Dave Westlake

Andrew and his wife are amazing down to earth people that just want to make a great product. I travelled to Beechworth to pickup my new 6 bike ShingleBack Off Road bike rack and Andrew spent the time helping to fit it to the car, and explain how to use it and how to get the most out of it. It has been a game changer in allowing us to take 5+ bikes out on a family bike ride. Previously we had no way to transport all our bikes. The product is extremely well made and thought out right down to the smallest detail. It can easily load my 29″ mtb right down to my sons 20″. Amazing. Can’t recommend it and Shingleback highly enough, buy local and support those out here giving it a go with great ideas.

Warren Sinclair

Awesome product!! Loaded 6 bikes in a matter of minutes and as there is zero contact with the frame, bikes are damage free even after long trips. Highly recommend!

Adam Green

These racks are the bomb! Super quick to load and unload, no fiddling with wheels and no busting a gut lifting it on to the roof. The swing arm makes a great rack even more awesome. Couldn’t be happier and the service was first rate.👍

Nicky Blackwell

The shingleback rack is just what we where after. We have the Five bike rack and swing bar, perfect for this little family to get the pram in and to while having bike onboard.

Caz

Shingleback bike racks are ingenious! Seriously quick and simple to load and makes the bike carrying process a breeze. Andrew engineered the fitting to carry the rack with our car or caravan. Five bikes survived a four month trip around Australia (even off-road) with no problem, and we rode more often because access was easy.

Justin Dean

Fantastic service, delivered on the date they estimated, easy to setup and install, mountain bikes and bmx’s all fit easily. Was also very easy to mount to a trailer (with some trailer modifications). Very solid construction. Highly recommend this product and company.

Adam and Walter Davey

I have had my 5 rack for a few weeks now. Thanks for a great bit of gear. Was hesitant at the price initially, but they are definitely worth it. Allready saving heaps of time and no more frame damage.
Thanks again.
Adam Davey, Margate Tasmania.

Martin Prebble

Our shingleback vertical bike rack has been on the back of our caravan and about 4 cars … well designed, well built and amazing to use …I would highly recommend one for anyone who wants to spend time on the tracks as opposed to in the car park loading bikes ….

Roger Conron

I purchased a 6 bike rack recently and have been very happy with the product. The time saved and ease of this rack is a game changer. I can accommodate all my families bikes and a kids friends bike on the rack. The rack means we can all duck out for a ride and family time without the hassle and stress of the jig-saw wrestling of bikes on and off an inferior rack. We ride more, I ride more. I was satisfied with the professional team at Shingleback. My rack took 3-4 days from purchase to arrive without any hick-ups.

Craig McPhee

The shingleback rack is a game changer for shuttling. It’s incredibly well made, easy to fit to the car, and even easier for loading bikes, all at a very reasonable price. The wheel buckets and bungees make loading and unloading so fast, and there is zero bike contact as long as you load them from big to small. 10/10 would buy again

Michael Willis

Best mountain bike rack in Australia! I’ve had one for over 2 years with no problems. Works brilliantly and still looks brand new. Shingleback have been great to deal with- very responsive and nice people. You can tell they are mountain bikers!

Glenn Phillips

We bought our 5 bike shingleback rack with the swing arm. Best device ever. Tough, strong and durable which is lacking in so many things we spend money on these days. The ability to take 5 bikes in one trip and get the kids out of the car and on their bikes quickly makes the day so much more enjoyable.

I used to dread taking bikes on trips because I had to dismantle the entire rack to get in the back of the car. The swing arm is a breeze and takes care of all the access hassles. The best bit is showing off in the car park as everyone else watches in awe is you get going with ease.

So far I’ve had 4 families borrow my rack and no complaints from anyone.

Well done shingle back off road 💪💪👍👍❤❤

Julie Humphreys

The Shingleback has been a game changer in our family. Getting the bikes onto and off the Shingleback is a breeze. Especially with the kids going up to the top of the MTB track and getting them up the top again. We can get 4 bikes on or off the rack in the time it takes riders with roof racks, to put one bike on/off their car. Even on dirt and rocky roads with our Commodore, the Shingleback is incredibly stable, reliable and well built. It’s money very well spent. Highly recommended.

Mark Kennedy

Fantastic product and couldn’t be happier with how easy it is to load and unload our bikes. 2 simple straps looped around the tyres and you’re done. Bike frames don’t come in contact with each other and the license plate holder finishes it all off nicely.

Was a little concerned whether it would clear the rear mounted spare tyre though Andrew assured me it would all be ok. It was and fits perfectly. Thanks again for a great product and service.

Trent Malcolm

Great rack, quick and easy to use, the swing arm is a sensational add on.

Rory Chapman

We’ve had this rack now for over 12 months and initially we purchased it because it allowed us to put 5 bikes on the back of the car and it was so easy to get them on and off. The stand was an added bonus that allowed us to keep the garage tidy!

Seane Pieper

Since purchasing the rack we decided to travel around Australia so we got the rack mounted to the back of our caravan so we could take our bikes but still move it to the car when we wanted to do shuttles at some of the great tracks around Australia. This has really shown how well Andrew builds these racks as it has travelled on the back of our caravan on some of the toughest tracks like the Oodnadatta Track and Mereenie loop without any issues at all. I get a lot of people ask me about my bike rack when they see it on my car or caravan and I always tell them it’s the best rack available hands down!

I’ve got 3 mtn bikes and a road bike. I run a 2001 landrover discovery. The lowering rack helps tremendously.It takes all the stress away.
