    Replacement Parts for Allen Hitch Rack

    I have an Allen hitch rack that I have had for about 3 or 4 years, and I was just about to paint it since the paint is worn, and there is some surface rust.

    However, recently when I was mounting a bike, the nylon strap that holds the bike to the rack tore off... The rest of them seem like they may be getting brittle also.

    The strap seems to be integrated into the cradle that the top tube rests in, and they seem like they would be easy to replace.

    Does anyone know a source for these parts? A quick online search was unsuccessful for me (but I am always hit or miss when it comes to such things).

    Any ideas?

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO

    Have you tried Allen's customer service? How about your LBS? Maybe they can order replacement parts.
