Questions from Mini Cooper owners about this product


  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Availability for a 2012 Mini Cooper
  • Yes, there are trunk mounted bike rack options for your 2012 Mini Cooper, the Yakima KingJoe Pro part # Y02624 that you referenced is one of the confirmed bike racks. I confirmed this with Yakima. I attached an install and demo video for this rack for you to check out also. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Yakima Tube Top Adapter Bar # Y02531 to provide a horizontal top tube on your...

  • Will the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack fit a 2009 Mini Cooper
  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack # Y02624 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2009 Mini Cooper and will not require you to install a hitch. This rack is a trunk mounted bike rack that installs with hooks and straps to the hatch lid of your vehicle and does not require a hitch at all. Check out the review video for this rack that I attached also. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes you may also be interested in purchasing a Yakima Top Tube Adapter...

  • Will the Yakima KingJoe Pro Trunk Mount Bike Carrier Fit a 2012 Mini Cooper
  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2, # Y02624, is listed as a fit for the 2012 Mini Cooper. No need to worry about the top straps because in order to use this rack on your Mini you will use the included glass hatch accessory. Think of it as a cylinder instead of a hook and that cylinder goes on the inside of the vehicle at the same point the hook would attach. The cylinder disperses the weight across a larger area so it will not damage the vehicle. I have linked a video and the instructions for this...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Mini Cooper S Hardtop
  • Since you can't carry more than 2 bikes on your 2014 Mini Cooper S hardtop with a trunk rack the better option would be the Yakima King Joe part # Y02624. This is a great rack with all of the nice features that the more expensive racks have at a lower price that has been confirmed to fit your vehicle. Check out the review video I attached for more info. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Recommendation for a 2009 Mini Cooper Hardtop
  • I have a trunk mounted bike rack recommendation I could make for your 2009 Mini Cooper, but the Thule Raceway is not one of the confirmed fits so I cannot recommend it for you. Instead I would recommend the Yakima KingJoe Pro part # Y02624. It features the upgraded anti-sway cradles as well as arms that are angle-adjustable and that fold up for easy storage. This rack is very easy to install and remove. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Mini Cooper Carrying Beach Cruisers
  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack # Y02624 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2009 Mini Cooper. This rack should work well with your beach cruiser and your wider handlebars should not be an issue, if so you can slide the frame cradles further away from the vehicle for more clearance. Since beach cruisers can have odd shaped frames you would be best served getting a frame adapter bar like the part # 64005. This adapter will attach to your seat post and steering stem and will...

  • Will the Yakima KingJoe Trunk Mount Bike Racks Fit a 2003 Mini Cooper
  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro for 2 bikes, # Y02624, KingJoe Pro for 3 bikes, # Y02625, and the older KingJoes, # Y02619 and # Y02620, all fit your 2003 Mini Cooper hardtop. The glass hatch accessory is not required to install any of the racks on the vehicle. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will...

  • What is the Best Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Mini Cooper
  • A total of 50 pounds will not be a problem for any of the trunk mount bike racks we have for your 2009 Mini Cooper. The Yakima KingJoe Pro, # Y02624, is the rack that I recommend. The Glass Hatch accessory is needed but is included with the rack. It will replace the top straps on the bike rack. Different vehicles do have different requirements as far as how many of the Glass Hatch accessory is needed. Your vehicle only needs the one set which is included. The available bike racks...

  • Yes, the Yakima KingJoe Pro, # Y02624, is listed as a fit for your 2014 Mini Cooler S Hardtop. You will need to use the included glass hatch adapters in place of the upper straps on the rack when installing on your Mini. I have included a link to a video review of this rack for you.

If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical mens bike) I recommend using an adapter bar # Y02531.

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2005 Mini Cooper S Convertible
  • We do offer some trunk mounted bike rack options that would work with your 2005 Mini Cooper Convertible, but the Yakima King Joe Pro you referred to isn't one of them. I'd recommend the Hollywood Racks Expedition, part # HRF6-2. The rack is attractively priced, but still includes features like anti-sway cradles with sturdy rubber straps, instead of the cheap hook and loop type nylon straps. If you'll be transporting women's bikes or bikes with sharply-angled top tubes, you might...

  • I checked with Yakima and the Yakima King Joe Pro 2 Bike rack part # Y02624 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2012 Mini Cooper S Hardtop. If installed properly the straps wouldn't interfere with the spoiler of your vehicle. For a trunk rack that would completely avoid your rear spoiler you would want the part # HRF2.

  • Does Yakima KingJoe Pro Bike Rack Fit 2012 Mini Cooper
  • As Mike said in his response to Lori, the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2, part # Y02624 is designed to be able to fit your 2012 Mini Cooper. The included glass hatch accessory would need to be used so you do not have to worry about the top straps on the bike carrier. I have attached a link to the video for the bike rack you can check out. If you are planning on carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend using an adapter bar like part # 64005. This attaches...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Mini Cooper Carrying Womens Bikes
  • Yes, to use the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack # Y02624 which has been confirmed to fit your 2011 Mini Cooper you will also need an adapter bar for carrying womens bikes or any bike that doesn't have a horizontal top tube. For that you will want part # 64005. I attached a review video for both the bike rack and the adapter bar.

  • Bike Carrying Options for 2012 Mini Countryman
  • To carry bikes on your 2012 Mini Countryman, you'd need to either use a hitch and a hitch mounted bike rack, or you'll need to install a roof rack and carry your bikes on the roof. None of our bike rack manufacturers offer a trunk mount bike rack that is compatible with your vehicle. As long as your Countryman isn't a John Cooper Works model, you could install the Curt # C11333 hitch. You'd then install a Class I compatible bike rack in the hitch. I'd recommend the Swagman Trailhead,...

  • Fit of Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack # Y02624 on 2014 Mini Cooper S Hatchback/Hardtop
  • Thank you for providing the photo of your Mini with spoiler. I verified that the Yakima fit guide does indeed list the King Joe Pro 2 # Y02624 as a fit for the 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop. On your vehicle you will need to use the Glass Hatch Hook accessory in place of the upper strap hooks to avoid damage to the spoiler. Try routing the strap under the spoiler if possible. That will avoid stressing it. That said, certain other bike rack makers do not consider the vehicle to be suitable...

  • Does the Swagman Trailhead Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2009 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works
  • First, you will need to install a trailer hitch on your 2009 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works model. I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said that the JCW model is not excluded so you can use # 11130. You will need to cut a hole in the rear bumper fascia in order to install trailer hitch # 11130.

Questions from Mini Cooper owners about this product


  • Recommended Bike Carrying Options for 2012 Mini Cooper Hardtop
  • We do have several trunk mounted bike racks that are compatible with your Mini Cooper. You can see them by clicking the link I have provided. Of the available choices, I really like the Thule Raceway, part # TH9001PRO for a 2 bike capacity or # TH9002PRO for a 3 bike capacity. Rather than the 6 strap and buckle fastening arrangement used by other racks, the Raceway uses 4 ratcheting cables that make installing and removing the rack ridiculously simple. Two of the ratcheting cables are lockable,...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Mini Cooper Convertible

Hollywood Racks has confirmed that a few of their bike racks would fit (see link). Out of the available options, the closest options we have to the Passage 2 rack is the Expedition 2, # HRF6-2, and the Expedition 3, # HRF6-3. Another option that you have is to install a trailer hitch like the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch,...

  • Bike Carrier Recommendations for a 2011 Mini Cooper Roadster Convertible
  • We do not show any fit for a trunk-mount bike carrier for your Mini convertible (this is due to the unique design of your vehicle). My contacts at three bike rack manufacturers (Hollywood Racks, Thule and Yakima) all confirmed that there is no trunk-mount bike carrier suitable for your 2011 Mini Cooper convertible. Also, since your vehicle has a dual exhaust centered at the back bumper, there is also no hitch receiver that can be fitted to it. This prevents use of a hitch-mount bike...

It also has 6 adjustable straps with hooks that anchor the rack to your trunk. I have attached a link to an installation video. If your vehicle is a 2 passenger Roadster, we do not offer any...

This rack has an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so no weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight).

First, the lighter weight of the Sherpa rack will allow you to safely carry heavier bikes on the rack. You will need to be sure that the total weight of the bikes, everything on them and the bike rack are within the tongue weight capacity of your Mini Cooper and hitch. Normally Class I hitches have a 200 pound tongue weight capacity....

Thule Sprint Roof Bike Racks Review - 2005 Mini Cooper

Today on our 2005 Mini Cooper, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Sprint, a fork mount roof bike rack, part number TH528. With our Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack system already installed on our Cooper, we'll begin our test fit by placing the bike rack directly onto our load bars. As we do this we want to bring our black rubber coated metal straps around the underside of our load bars and this will position our foot packs directly on top of our load bars. Here at the front, we're going to fit the strap into the head of the carrier and then tighten down the black lever to secure it. We'll move to the rear and repeat that same process. With both of our clamps secure, we're now ready to load up our bike. We'll begin by undoing our rear wheel strap and making sure that our front skewer is open. We'll now grab our bike, place it onto the bike rack, we'll guide our front forks down onto our front skewer, we'll secure it here first by tightening that black and grey knob back down.
