Video Transcript for Yakima SpareTime Spare Tire Mount Bike Rack Review

Today we are going to review the SpareTime bike carrier from Yakima, part number Y02598. This bike carrier mounts directly to the spare tire mount on the back of your SUV or van. Let us go ahead and take a closer look at our bike carrier now and show you how it installs on the back of our vehicle. To start, we want to go ahead and remove our spare tire. And we want to take our mounting plate, which we can see has multiple holes in it, it allows it to be oriented to accommodate your specific bolt pattern. You can also see that it has a tongue here, which is actually what the bike rack is going to mount to. The bike carrier comes with different length tongues as well and that is to accommodate the different thicknesses of spare tires. Once you have determined the proper combination for your vehicle, you can go ahead and set the mounting plate onto the spare tire carrier. And then just go ahead and reinstall our spare tire. 0:54

We will next take the SpareTime bike rack and go ahead and slide it onto the mounting tongue. Place the locking knob, along with the locking plate, and it into the SpareTime upright. And just thread it on to the mounting tongue. And once you have it fully tightened down, you can go ahead and take your key and insert it into the locking knob. Give it a half turn and now the knob itself just free spins. It cannot be released. And next we just want to go ahead and fold the arms up into position. To do that, we want to take the red handle over here on the side and go ahead and turn that counter clockwise. And what that does is it separates the locking teeth here that are holding it into place. And once they are disengaged, you can go ahead and rotate it up into position. Realign the teeth and tighten it back down. 1:41

Now we can go ahead and put our bike onto the bike rack. We just want to go ahead and release the cradles by pulling it over the locking tab here. You can see, where the bike is going to sit on top of the arms, we have some felt strips. And that is going to keep the bike from marring up. You just want to go ahead and set the bike onto the bike rack and go ahead and pull our straps down to tighten it up. You can go ahead and adjust the anti-sway arm here at the bottom to accommodate your specific cross tube. You can see that the rubber straps allow you to pull it nice and tight. And then lastly we want to go ahead and take the locking cable, that is provided, and go ahead and it through our locking loop. And just lock them together. And that is all there is to it. And that will conclude the review of the SpareTime spare tire bike carrier, part number Y02598.

Perfect bike carrier for Jeep. I had a Swagman and I couldn't open the back without taking it off. This Yakima is strong and lockable. Plus it looks nice. Comes with a locking cable for my bike. I also have to add that I'm a Disney institute grad. from their customer service program. Patrick and etrailer are top notch. I wish I could deal with companies like this all of the time. 80176

The rack is a quality piece of equipment and I'm very impressed with it's workmanship. I installed it on my 2006 Honda CR-V and it went on without any problems. The entire installation may have taken 15 minutes. Two bikes fit very tightly. Also, I ordered the rack on a Monday and it was delivered on Thursday. It went UPS ground (no shipping charge). I recommend it to anyone with a CR-V! 9916

After a couple of weeks of researching which type of bike rack I wanted for my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK (hitch mount or spare tire), I decided on the spare tire mount. And after a 4hr (roundtrip) mountain biking weekend escape, I'm very happy with my decision. What I like about the rack: well built, very sturdy with bike(s) mounted (no sway or rattle), arms fold down and lock in place when not in use (looks slick), full access to cargo area without needing to remove rack, rack and bike cable locks included, economical, lifetime warranty and of course the dual bottle openers ; ) What I would improve upon or revise in a future model: arms should be longer (even just an inch because bikes rub slightly so I had to add padding), more use of aluminum rather than plastic (thinking long term durability of the plastic locking teeth and arms) Thanks eTrailer 95707

The order and delivery processes were flawless. My rack was shipped the same day I ordered it - actually within an hour or two! Their package tracking system with a little icon on a US map showing the progress across the country each day was fun. The Yakima Spare Time 2 worked well for me. I drive a 2006 Jeep TJ Wrangler and, like thousand of such Jeep owners, I have somewhat oversized off-road tires. I had initially bought the Thule version of this rack at a local REI store. The "Thule Spare Me" rack DOES NOT FIT a Jeep Wrangler with non-standard tires. The tongue is far too short and I had to return the otherwise well-made rack. I kept the Thule top-bar adapter to make my Cannondale frame fit a horizontal bike rack. The folks at Yakima understand that Jeep owners often have larger than standard wheels and tires for off-road use, and they include THREE sizes of interchangable tongues for a perfect fit on my Wrangler's spare tire. I used the large size. Clean and easy install, holds the bike steady and locks securely. 62183


Comments

The Spare Me has recently been updated. Chances are you had the TH963XTR. The rack has been updated with extensions to offer solutions for those with larger aftermarket wheels. The current Spare Me is part TH963PRO.

Easy to install on my 2007 Jeep Wrangler. I used the short mounting bar. Looks great. Very light weight compared to the hitch mounted racks but, not sure about relative strength or stability with my bikes loaded, especially in off-road conditions. We'll see... 23920

Jus attached the Y02598 Yakima bike rack to my 2012 Jeep Wrangler over fifth wheel 35 Nitro Grapler tire. Took me longer to pull the jack handle out of the Jeep than it did to install the rack. As soon as you lift it you realize how solid it is. Everything is assembled. All you do is pull the tire off, slide the sleeve on, put the tire back on and tighten the nuts and screw the red piece on to secure it. I locked it on, and then wove the cable lock thru the wheel and locked that on too. Seriously, that's it. Very happy. 117257

I have a 2008 RAV-4 Limited, and the Yakima SpareTime Bike Rack installs easily in minutes, using only the included Allen wrench and the RAV-4 tire iron. Before you get started, grab a beverage and watch the video (for the 2009 RAV-4 install above, which I think is the same) and/or read this. First, put on some music--the RAV's radio, and/or your ipod/phone. Your goal is to have this installation completed in four songs or fewer. And no, you can't play Stairway to Heaven four times. Next, locate the two tools you'll need: a monster Allen wrench somewhere in your Yakima box and your RAV-4 tire iron. The Allen wrench is in one of the plastic bags included in the box that your rack shipped in. The RAV-4 Limited tire iron is located in a black bag behind the removable panel just inside the back cargo area to the LEFT (i.e., in the back of the RAV-4 on the driver’s side). FYI, the jack is behind a similar panel on the right side, but the tire iron is not in there with the jack, the tire iron is on the LEFT side of the car. I just cut your installation time in half, so you're welcome. Now open the tailgate, and remove the spare tire cover. For the RAV-4 Limited (and possibly other RAVs too), there is a securing latch on the 6 o-clock position of the spare cover that you can only flip open when the tailgate is open and free of the rear bumper. Once you pop open this latch (again, with the tailgate open), the cover should lift off fairly easily. Next, remove the lug nuts that are securing the spare to the RAV-4. On my 2008, there were 3 of these. Next, be safe and make sure you can handle the weight of the spare wheel and tire before removing it. It's heavier than it looks, so you may want to have a beverage so you have a little time to think about it and/or garner some strength. Once you’re ready, slide the spare tire off, and make a mental note of where you put the lug nuts. Before attaching the mounting bracket that comes with your rack, you need to remove the middle of the mounting plate so the opening is big enough to go around the flange that the RAV-4's spare tire rests on. You can safely ignore Paul S. above, there is no need to cut, mutilate, and/or remove any part of your RAV-4 spare tire bracket (the flange that the spare rests on). Instead, you simply remove the adaptor plate (the inside of the mounting plate provided with the rack) by pivoting it out, as outlined in the instructions. The directions are very clear--you may need to loosen the Allen head bolt to make room to get the adaptor plate out, but it's very intuitive/straightforward. Then discard the adaptor plate, or save it for another vehicle, or put it on ebay. And don't worry Paul S, we won't call CarFax on you about the damage to your spare tire bracket.... Okay, you're about half way. Good time to have a drink and take a break. Next, align the mounting plate (with the center part of the plate removed) over the bolts that secure the spare tire to the RAV-4. This only fits one way, best I could tell. Slide the mounting plate to the back of the bolts and get ready to mount the spare. (NOTE: The Yakima SpareTime rack ships with three tongues, and the short tongue is the one that was pre-mated to the bracket at the factory. So RAV-4 owners (or at least this owner) should be in luck, since the short tongue is the one we want to use for the 2008 RAV-4 (assuming your spare tire width is 235 or less). The Yokohama spare that the 2008 RAV-4 came with is 225, so just verify the width of the spare tire and use the proper tongue. The installation instructions spell out which tongue (short, medium, or long) to use, depending on the width of the spare tire, so just read the instructions. But again, I used the short tongue, and chances are good you will, too if you have a 2008 Toyota RAV-4.) Next, find your lug nuts and get ready to put the spare tire back on your RAV. You may have to wiggle it, just a little bit, but eventually you'll get it on. Then put the lug nuts on each of the bolts and tighten each down, using the tire iron. Make sure all of these are tight. Next, take the bike rack itself and adjust the offset, using the Allen wrench provided with the rack. There are different options for the amount of offset, but I moved it all the way over to the right for the 2008 RAV-4 Limited (which centers the bikes almost exactly). I used the center brake light on the RAV-4 roofline (which I hope is centered...) as a guide to help align it. I must admit I was a little surprised at how much the spare tire is offset on the 2008 RAV-4—I never really noticed. Anyway, I went "full right" with the offset (which moves the bikes/rack to the left), but I guess I can't stop you from doing something else with the offset. Whatever you decide, make sure the Allen head screws are tightened in their offset positions. Next, install the rack onto the square tongue that is now sticking out from the center of the spare tire. Then, find the red screw bolt and use it to secure the rack to the RAV-4. I opted to keep the locking tongue on the bolt (facing up) so I can lock my bikes to the rack if needed. I don't know why you wouldn't want this locking option, but according to the instructions, you can opt to take this off. Before you decide, it appears this locking tongue could also serve as a 3rd bottle opener (in addition to the bottle openers built in to each of the arms that hold the bikes), so choose wisely. Make sure the red handle is tight. Check again. Read the instructions carefully here. The rack mast needs to compress the spare, so really crank down on the red handle. Push the spare toward the front while you're turning the red handle, and verify there is solid contact between the mast and the spare. Lastly, mount your bikes and secure them using the Yakima rubber bands. Use the supplied cable and lock to secure them, if desired. Place one key for the lock on your key ring with your RAV-4 keys, and place the other key inside the RAV (or with the spare key that is stuck somewhere to the outside of your RAV). That's it! No metal cutting disc or sawzall needed! Nice work, those bikes aren't going anywhere. Have another beverage. One last note, if you use the short tongue, the RAV-4 spare tire cover fits over it. So if/when you remove the rack, you can put your spare tire cover back on and go back to pushin' your RAV-4 all over town with no unsightly spare tire showing. If you use either of the longer tongues (which you shouldn't, unless you have a wider spare wheel/tire), the cover probably will NOT fit over the tongue (since the spare cover BARELY covers the short tongue). FYI, when you're finished installing this rack on a 2008 RAV-4, you'll have the following leftovers: two tongues (the long tongue and the medium tongue), the adaptor plate (the center of the mounting plate that you removed), and the world's largest Allen wrench. I drove around today for a few miles, and so far, so good. With the offset I chose, both of my bikes are centered perfectly in the back and do not extend past the side view mirrors on either side. As noted in a few other reviews, the fit for two bikes is tight, but I think keeping the length of the arms short reduces the moment and the forces and all that, so I'm guessing that's why those crazy Yakima engineers made the arms so short. (Plus, they can probably sell more Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bars!) On that note, I ordered two of these bars, but I only needed one of them to mount a mountain bike and a road bike to this rack. If you're having trouble getting two bikes to fit, I strongly suspect a Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar will solve your problem. Again, it will likely be a tight fit--you'll have to get the pedals, handlebars, cables, etc aligned just right, but it's still fairly easy (and a lot better than trying to put the bikes on the roof or not being able to open the back of your RAV-4 because your hitch-mounted rack is in the way...). Remember to check your rack on roadtrips at every stop, in windy/bumpy conditions, or at any sign of excessive movement/danger. So far, this is a great product. 44832

Highly recommended I have bike hitch racks and roof racks, but wanted a more convenient rack. The Yakima Spare Time fits the bill. I keep it on my spare time all summer, and it doesn't interfere with opening or closing the rear hatch of my Toyota RAV 4. Only drawback is the arms are too short. It holds one bike easily, but two bikes are crowded.3428

Totally agree, the arms are way too short. Actually the arms are probably long enough but the slots for the 2 bikes are very close together. Would be good for one bike, but unlikely to fit 2 bikes.

Great rack and pretty easy installation. Secures bikes really well. Very easy to use once you find the ideal configuration for bikes. The directions could definitely use some clarification. A WORD OF ADVICE TO 2007-12 JEEP WRANGLER OWNERS: Based on the stock tire size on the Jeep (P255) the instructions will tell you to use the medium-sized tongue. If you do this, the rack WILL NOT tighten down all the way and will jiggle and rotate on the spare. Use the short tongue that comes pre-installed on the rack system. I had the rack assembled according to the instructions and it was way loose. Had to take it all apart and put back on the short tongue. Other than that setback, assembly was a breeze.53894

I like the way it mounts to the car and the quality of the product. My dislikes are the bikes are positioned to close and the straps are very hard to snap on. Positioning additional 3" to 4" spread and velcro straps would be bring my rating to Excellent.125704

The end product was great but when I opened out of box the plate screw was torqued in too tight and took extra tools to get the plate screw loose. It was such a pain. Mgf should leave the plate off but if it's on don't over torque the screw! 125679

There's a lot of moulded plastic on this rack (versus the older, solid steel trailer hitch mounted rack I had been using) which made me afraid it would be too flimsy. To my surprise, this rack is is every bit as solid as my old hitch mounted rack. Plus, this mount attaches quickly and easily (took me less than 10 minutes) and I don't have to take it on and off every time I want to open the tailgate. I am very satisfied with this product. 104850

The customer service is great with e-trailer, and they got my package to me within three days. The install went well and was pretty easy, although I had to remove the rack and take out the long extension and replace with the medium extension even though I have a 315 spare tire. And then the only complaint I have is that my wife's bike, being a woman's bike, does not fit on the rack. I had to purchase and pay shipping on an additional bike tube to get her bike to fit properly on the rack. Just beware of that. It was an additional $42.00. Other than that, good fit and easy to install.102794

It was a painless process to get a good bike rack that actually fits on my 2005 Jeep Liberty... I had a flimsy one that strapped around the spare tire, previously. The ordering/tracking/delivery/installation went smoothly. The only issue I encountered is that the tongue that arrived attached to the plate was IMPOSSIBLE to remove; fortunately, it was the correct size to use with my spare tire width.96760

The BEST SPARE TIRE BIKE RACK AVAILABLE and etrailer delivers exceptional service and shipping was very quick. As soon as I made a purchase over the weekend - I got the product at my door within a few days. Assembly is very easy but best of all shipping was excellent! After having my bike fall off my Honda CRV a month ago - I will never again buy another Thule bike rack ever. Yakima's Spare Tire racks are very high quality and after testing it the past 3 days - I am very satisfied with the product!!!!!

I bought the Yakima Spare Time 2 Bike Carrier to take a bike across country from Richmond, Virginia, to Boulder, Colorado. The rack worked perfectly. Installation: I installed the rack on the back of my 2002 Honda CRV, and it took less than 5 minutes. Transporting the bike: One of the features of the rack that I really liked was the ability to adjust the carrying arms. I was concerned that because my spare tire was off center, the bike would be hanging off center and sticking out from the side of the car. By adjusting the carrying arms toward the center of the car, the bike was perfectly centered. The bike was also firmly secured on the rack. The rack was sturdy, so I felt confident that the bike wasn't going to move around - and it didn't. I also like the fastening straps and the way they fit snugly on the hooks. It was nice that the rack came with a keyed security cable. On a couple of occasions, both my son and I went into a gas station to use the bathroom, and it was nice knowing that the bike was locked onto the rack. That's not to say that someone couldn't have cut the cable had they wanted to; but having the cable in place is a nice security feature. I also like the ease with which the carrying arms can be lowered when the rack is not in use. The prevents people from running into it when walking around the car. All in all, an excellent and, actually, attractive rack for the spare tire arrangement, and I'd recommend this model to anyone. Also, etrailer did a great job of getting the rack to me quickly and then following up with me once I received it to see if I had any questions. Excellent rack and excellent service.82271

Attractive unit. Very easy and quick to install. Shipping was extremely fast. Unit extension bars are a little short for two adult mountain bikes. They fit but are extremely close and tight. If they were 1-2 inches longer it would be perfect. All together I am pleased with the unit.57273

Shipping was super-fast - ordered on a Saturday, received feedback on Sunday, and the rack arrived on Tuesday. I also liked the shipping progress map on the shipping status page. Not sure if it is accurate but it is pretty neat. We are happy with the rack so far; it was easy to install and is very sturdy. I do have one area of concern that I did not think about before ordering - the rack was installed on a 2009 Rav4 and I wonder about potential structure damage (over time) to the back door due to the addition weight of the rack and bikes. I would use eTrailer again.52189

Ordered and it came the very next day, even though I picked standard shipping. Received multiple e-mails from etrailer updating me on the status of my product. Installation would have been really easy except the bolt attached to the short tongue (I needed to use the medium tongue) was screwed in so tight I couldn't get it loose. I ended up taking it to a local hardware store for a very big, burly man to use a bolt-cheater to get it undone after he put in quite an effort (I felt validated that it took him some force to get it off). I called customer service about the tight bolt and they offered to send another if I couldn't get it undone. I have a 2008 Wrangler Unlimited soft top and the attachment plate had to go on upside down compared to what the directions say, but that was no problem. Already used it once and it was a tight fit for both of our hybrid bikes, but we managed to get them secured, using additional straps to help cinch the bikes tight during transport. Seems like a great product so far.51143

After searching on-line found the best price on the Yakima Spare Time 2 Bike Carrier. Not only was it the lowest priced; but those priced higher did not include the lock cores and keys without an additional charge. Also, others did not include free shipping. After placing order from etrailer.com received email stating in addition to free ground shipping, they were upgrading my shipping without charge to 3-5 day. Received product to my door in 3 days. Wow, what a great way to do business in this day and time. I will definitly shop etrailer.com first in the future.50643

Outstanding product and even better retailer. I found a lower price for the carrier shortly after I purchased it. eTrailer honored their price guarantee immediately upon notification. The carrier was easy to order with detailed advice to ensure a proper match to my vehicle and delivery was FAST. The I cannot be happier with the Carrier itself. It successfully carried one bike from SC to AR over some pretty questionable road conditions. When I arrived, the bike had to remain on the carrier while I drove around town for 4 days. I now have the utmost confidence in the carrier. Note: I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with OEM tires and used the medium post (included). 46789

The online video was perfect. There was some concern about the product fitting on a Jeep, and the video showed it working. I ordered on a Monday, and received it on Thursday. I opened the box and had it installed in about 10 minutes. The rack is quality and I like that when not in use, it folds up and takes up very little room. I can still use the trailer hitch to pull trailers when the rack is there. I can not pull my boat with the bicycle on it, but I don't ride and fish at the same time any way! Great experience!29185

A breeze to install. Have one minor complaint, there is slack on the nnterconnect between the main body and the bar that it slides on tol I was able to tighten up the structure, but once the bike was mounted, (centered on the vehicle) there was more bike on one side than the other and the entire main body tilts slightly to the Left. Its not a major problem, just "bugs' me cause I like things straight and level! John41016

Well made and strong. The only caution is installing the adaptor plate. I have a 2009 Toyota RAV4 limited and the instructions simply say "if you have a spare tire support bracket this needs to be removed." Easily said...but you will need a metal cutting disc or sawsall to cut it off. It's tough metal! I don't keep those kind of tools just laying around...Otherwise, it was a simple installation.35975

  • Using Yakima SpareTime Bike Rack Part # Y02598 on Rear of Camper
  • According to Yakima, the SpareTime Bike Carrier should NOT be used on towed trailers or campers. The combined weight of the bikes and the rack is not really the issue, rather the fact that the rack will be subject to the additional jarring and rattling is the primary reason for not recommending it. Using this or any other rack not designed for use on a trailer can result in failure of the rack and loss of the bicycles. Depending on the tongue weight of the trailer, you might be able to use
