Montpelier, VT September 15, 2007 — ORS Racks Direct, a leading nationwide retailer of vehicle rack systems for commercial and recreational applications, announced today the company is featuring the SugarMounts 'HitchFork' hitch bike rack storage stand ( image available at ) as part of the company's bike storage rack solutions category. The SugarMounts 'HitchFork' hitch bike rack storage stand, manufactured by Vermont based SugarMounts Car Rack Systems ( website available at ), delivers an innovative solution to the problem of how to easily store a hitch mount bicycle carrier when not installed on an automobile. Simply inserting any 2" or 1 1/4" hitch compatible bike rack into the SugarMounts 'HitchFork' Stand coverts the hitch bike rack into a storage bike rack for a garage, basement, dorm room, apartment, office or any place convenient for a storage bike rack. With the hitch bike rack in place, the bicycles rest at a convenient level for loading and unloading. Additionally, the hitch bike rack mounted onto the SugarMounts 'HitchFork' stand also serves double duty as a bike maintenance stand.

"The SugarMounts 'HitchFork' bike rack is one of the cleverest products we've seen in the bike storage rack category in quite some time, and it elegantly solves the issue that has dogged hitch bike rack users for years," states Catherine Case, Consumer Relations and Sales Coordinator, ORS Racks Direct. "Even though trailer hitch mount bike carriers offer perhaps the most convenient solution to carrying bikes on a car, as opposed to a roof rack for instance. The dirty secret about hitch bike racks is that they are cumbersome, heavy and difficult to store when they're not mounted onto the vehicle. The SugarMounts 'HitchFork' really does provide the answer to both storing the hitch bike rack and the bikes themselves."

The SugarMounts 'HitchFork' Stand universally accepts any 2 inch or 1.25 inch hitch mount bike rack from manufacturers including Thule Racks, Yakima Racks, Allen, Saris, Swagman and more. Platform style hitch bike rack owners will also appreciate that the SugarMounts 'HithFork' is compatible with this style of hitch mount bike racks as well.
