Solid rack does the job as expected.

Even if the product comes with a defective craddle out of the box, Yakima provides me a free one. No need to "fight" to have the replacement part. Simply a picture of the defective part and an email.


My biggest issue with this rack are the "zip strips". They aren't flexible and therefore need to be completely removed to mount a bike, which means you have to hold them in one hand or put them down. Why can't Yakima use a fixed rubber strap that's flexible like Thule? The locking mechanism on the hitch and the operation of the fold down carrier works well, and it looks good, but the strap system is just terrible. Very poor design. It's particularly annoying when using the tubetop frame adapter because the inflexible zip strip can't be fed between the seat and the tubetop, so one has to hold the bike up with one hand and thread the zip strip with the other, trying to get it to bend enough to fit. This was the tip that Rack Attack customer service gave me, which was very helpful, but still doesn't fix a fundamentally flawed and stupid design.

Rack Attack sells three types of hitch bike racks. The first is a hanging racks where the bikes sit upright. These racks will carry pretty much any bikes under the weight limit. The second type of bike rack is a platform rack where the bikes mount via the tires. These racks can carry any bikes under the weight limit as long as your tires aren't too fat to fit into the cradles. The final type of bike rack we sell is a hanging rack. Two-arm hanging racks can cause difficulties with some frames, wo

This rack doesn't offer rear vehicle access out of the box. However, if your trailer hitch is 2" you can use the Yakima Backswing to add this feature to the rack. Just note the 250 lbs BackSwing weight limit.
