Yakima FrontLoader Reviews

 
Reviewed by a RackAttack Customer

Tom, 29er rated this item 5 out of 5 on 9/24/2012:

Just placed an order before 12pm and the rack is already shipping. I sent out a questionnaire Sunday evening and customer service had responded with a cheaper and better option than I had anticipated in less than 24hrs. So far so good. Looking forward to using my new rack. Fantastic customer service, much appreciated.

After a week and a half of reviewing the current field of roof mounted bike carriers I chose to buy the Yakima Frontloader. My criteria was....had to fit Thule racks(square bar) had to solidly hold my bike(22"frame 29er, had to be lockable to my car and the bike, had to be quick and easy to put on and off between my 2 cars, and had to look good as it was going to sit on my BMWs. This rack delivered solidly on all points. It is a great piece of engineering. I took it out of the box in the parking lot, threw it on my roof rack an had it locked down in 2minutes. No tools(other than the allen key they give you to screw on a single bolt that holds the wheel clamp) and I was on my way. The whole process of buying really frustrated me. No good reviews online other and everyone I ask tells me I need to buy the top of the line Thule or Yakima product. It came down to the Highroller, the Sidearm, and the Front loader. Every dealer tried to convince me you needed the top of the line....kind of started to sound elitist rather than what I needed. My bike sits on top with little wobble or sway. At then end of the day they will all sway to some degree. I have driven past all of them on the road and seen slight movement on all. I only bought one lock core(that pops in at the front to secure the holder to my racks) as the cable lock attached looked a little short for my 22" 29er. I may add another to deter someone if they try to steal my bike while i get coffee. All in all the rack looks great and is crazy simple to use. I will add another at some point for my wife''''s bike. The only bad comment i would have is that is is only rated for bikes up 40pounds. If you have a heavy steel cruiser or a serious downhill bike you may want to look at the Highroller which is notably stronger or the sidearm which touches your forks. The 2 Yakimas I mentioned do not touch your frame ....which I love. The rep at the store told me the 1st version of this rack had a recall due to an issue with how it measured tires. They have corrected the problem by adding an extra setting.
