Born in a garage with a single drill press and a dream, Lolo Racks has grown from engineer Joseph Oshman’s dream to build a better rack for his family to a booming bike rack company with customers around the world. Despite the company’s growth and move from Joseph’s home to their own building with state-of-the-art machinery, the passion and dedication remains. That passion doesn’t just extend to the finished product and a constant tweaking on bike rack designs. Joseph and Lolo Racks are equally passionate about American manufacturing from the welders and fabricators in-house to the local steel purchased, local powder coaters and painters, these racks wear their Made in America labels with pride.

Depending on the size of your family or usual riding crew, Lolo offers a four or six bike rack designed to fit into a 2” receiver hitch. If you’ve got an adventure van or other flat-backed vehicle with a ladder, Lolo offers a Bike Rack Kit that is easily customizable to suit your needs. If you happen to live in the Pacific Northwest or are looking for an excuse to make a road trip, Lolo offers a build and install pickup option. That’s right, you can swing by Lolo Racks HQ, meet the crew who built your rack and have them install it on your rig. If you ask ‘em, they’ll probably even point you in the direction of some sweet trails.
