Questions from Mini Cooper owners about this Bike Rack

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • I have an option for you, but there is not a roof rack that will fit your 2015 Mini Cooper S Coupe, per my contact at Yakima. I recommend the Yakima trunk bike rack # Y02624 because it has a low-profile design. As long as the bike rack is secured to your trunk according to the directions, the noise will be to a minimum. You may have slight noise from the elements such as bumps and wind, but it will quieter than having a roof rack. The Yakima trunk bike rack has received great...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • First, for the 2009 Mini Cooper hardtop there are the following isntallation notes: Place the upper strap hooks at the top edge of trunk, hatch lid, or rear door Outer/Lower support frame rests on the lower portion of the license plate, below the numbers Place the lower strap hooks at the bottom edge of the trunk, hatch lid, or rear door Side strap hooks to back side edge of trunk, hatch, or rear door next to tail lights Requires use of Yakima's Glass Hatch Hook accessory...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

This rack is very easy to install and remove. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • For your 2013 Mini Cooper, I recommend the Yakima KingJoe Pro Bike Rack # Y02624.

  • 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...

Questions from Mini Cooper owners about this Bike Rack

  • First, you will need to install a trailer hitch on your 2009 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works model.

Questions from Mini Cooper owners about this Bike Rack

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • If your Mini Cooper is not a convertible, a trunk mounted rack would be a good option. According to my contacts at Thule, their trunk mounted bike racks are compatible with the 2010 model Mini Cooper. Several of the Yakima models will fit, as well.

Questions from Mini Cooper owners about this Bike Rack

  • Your 2005 Mini Cooper S convertible has a hitch? All of the hitches we carry will not fit the S models due to the placement of the exhaust. We do not have a picture showing the Kuat Beta # B202-114 on a Mini Cooper convertible. But I did check numerous pictures of the vehicle and I don't see any way that there would be interference with the convertible top and the bike rack.

Questions from Mini Cooper owners about this Bike Rack

  • For your 2010 Mini Cooper, I would recommend the lighter Kuat Sherpa, item # S101, bike rack over the Thule T2, item # TH917XTR, bike rack for several reasons. 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...

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.

Mini Cooper Hitch Bike Racks Questions

  • For your 2010 Mini Cooper, I would recommend the lighter Kuat Sherpa, item # S101, bike rack over the Thule T2, item # TH917XTR, bike rack for several reasons. 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...

  • Your 2005 Mini Cooper S convertible has a hitch? All of the hitches we carry will not fit the S models due to the placement of the exhaust. We do not have a picture showing the Kuat Beta # B202-114 on a Mini Cooper convertible. But I did check numerous pictures of the vehicle and I don't see any way that there would be interference with the convertible top and the bike rack. The rack measures 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast....

  • 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. I have included a link to the installation details and a video for you to view. I have seen several different styles of the John Cooper Works models of the 2009 and it looks like if...

  • The Kuat # N102 is compatible with the Class I hitch used on your Mini Cooper Convertible, and if the weight of each bike is indeed under the 60 lb individual bike weight limit of the rack, the setup you propose should work well for you. I would recommend using something like the Thule Quick Loop, part # TH530 in conjunction with the Curt stabilizing strap, part # 18050. You can close the quick loop in the trunk opening, and connect the hook on the stabilizing strap to the...

  • Since your 2006 Mini Cooper S Convertible is limited to a Class l hitch, you would not be able to use the Rola TX-103 bike rack, part # 59403. Class l hitches are limited to carriers that can hold 2 bikes only. Although some accessories will fit a hitch on a vehicle, it is never recommended to use an item that is not rated for the hitch, and modifying any hitch accessory could be a safety concern and certainly void any warranty on the item. The bike rack I recommend for...

  • There are currently no trailer hitches for the 2006 Mini Cooper Convertible if it is an S model because of the center exhaust. If you already have a hitch that works with the S design then measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance needed to clear the rear of the vehicle. If that distance is less than 6-5/8 inches then the rack will clear the back of the Mini.

  • First, on the hitch you want to install, check the Class/capacity. It will more than likely be a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch capacity. You will also want to check with the hitch manufacturer to see if they have any specific information on carrying a bike rack. For your 2005 Mini Cooper, you will want to look at bikes racks compatible with a Class I hitch. For a platform style rack, I recommend the Swagman XTC-2, # S64670. It is the most popular platform rack for Class I...

Mini Cooper Roof Bike Racks Questions

  • When using the Yakima Raptor Aero Roof Bike Rack, part # Y02093 with the Yakima roof rack on a 2004 Mini Cooper it will not cause interference with the rear hatch when it is opened. You will be able to open the hatch all the way. The installation notes on the Yakima roof rack also mention that if you have a sunroof, it should not be opened while the roof rack is installed on the vehicle. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Yakima Raptor bike rack.

  • Roof mounted bike rack # S64720 is a fit for most factory roof racks, but you can measure to confirm whether the rack will mount to your particular setup. The bike rack mounting u-bolts measure 3-1/8 inches wide x 1-7/8 inches tall, so as long as the roof rack bars will fit inside the u-bolts, there would be no problem using the # S64720 bike rack on the 2002 Mini Cooper.

  • The Yakima Boa, # Y02065, is not a direct fit to the factory crossbars on a 2006 to 2013 Mini Cooper. But there are other racks that will fit including the FrontLoader # Y02103, ForkLift, # Y02098, and Raptor Aero, # Y02093. I have included links to video reviews of each rack for you to view. I like the FrontLoader and Raptor Aero because you do not have to remove the front wheel to load the bike.

  • The installation hardware on the Thule Sidearm Roof Bike Rack # TH594XT is designed to fit a broad range of aftermarket roof racks as well as most auto maker's factory-installed racks. It will even fit the large aero-style Thule crossbars used in their advanced AeroBlade roof rack systems, which are 3-1/8-inches wide x 1-1/2-inches tall, so it will certainly fit the factory bars on your Mini Cooper S.

At this time we do not have an option for carrying bikes at the rear of the 2011 Mini Cooper Countryman.

  • 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...

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • For a trunk mounted bike rack confirmed to fit your 2012 Mini Cooper Convertible the Hollywood Racks Trunk Bike Rack # HRF6-2 would be a great choice. It has been confirmed to fit your vehicle as well. Normally I would recommend a hitch mounted bike rack, but there aren't any hitches available for the 2012 Mini Cooper Convertibles. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman...

  • The least expensive bike rack that would fit your 2005 Mini Cooper and that I would recommend would be the Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier # TH910XT. This is a trunk mounted bike rack that would not interfere your sun roof. The Thule Passage Bike Rack comes in a 2 bike carrier # TH910XT and 3 bike carrier style # TH911XT. Both styles offer a couple of features that I would recommend over some of the other manufacturer bike rack systems. The attachment straps and anti-sway cradles...

  • The Thule Raceway trunk mount bike rack # TH9001PRO is listed as a fit for all models of the 2005 Mini Cooper with the exception of the convertibles. The R50, Mini One, or first generation, however it is referred to, can be fitted with either the 2 bike TH9001PRO or the 3 bike # TH9002PRO. I own one of these racks and my family and I love it. It is by far the easiest bike rack I have ever used. The retractable cables are my favorite feature because they make installation quick...

  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 trunk mount bike rack # Y02624 is listed as a fit for your 2013 Mini Cooper S. 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. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and provide better ground clearance. I use a similar style adapter bar and without it my wifes bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load...

  • Your 2014 Mini Cooper Convertible poses challenges to the fit of many otherwise excellent bike carriers including the Thule Passage 2 that you referenced, part # TH910XT. The absence of a hard roof and the lightweight sheet metal on your Cooper convertible mean that many bike rack manufacturers including Thule and Yakima do not recommend any trunk-mount carriers for your vehicle. Hollywood Racks does show that some of their trunk carriers will work on your Mini convertible,...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • Since you have a spoiler that is going to prevent the installation of a trunk mount bike rack. What you can do, as long as your Mini Cooper is not an S model, is install a trailer hitch # C11126. Then you could use a hitch mount bike rack. I have included a link to the installation instructions for the hitch. You can then install a bike rack like # 59400. The long straight shank on this rack will help with reaching the recessed receiver of the trailer hitch on the Mini Cooper....

  • When I first got my Raceway bike rack, I had the same problem. There are a couple of things that you can try to get the top hooks in place. First, what works for me is to put the hook above the opening it needs to go into and then pushing it into place. The coating protects the vehicle from any damage. Another thing you can do is pull out some slack from the retractable cable and try to get the hook in at the corner or edge and then slide it over into position. This works for...

  • The Kuat Sherpa bike racks, # S101 and # S103, are compatible with the Curt Class I trailer hitch # C11160. And the hitch is compatible with your 2010 Mini Cooper Convertible with single exhaust. But there is another issue. Once installed the trailer hitch receiver will be behind the rear fascia of your Mini. The distance from the center of the pin hole back to clear the rear fascia will be approximately 6 inches. But the straight part of the Sherpa shank is not long enough...

  • 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...

  • Vehicles like your 2007 Mini Cooper that have lightweight sheet metal can be overloaded by a trunk-mount bike rack such as the Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier # TH910XT. In fact, Thule does not recommend any of their trunk-mount racks for your Cooper due to the potential for dimpling or denting of the thin sheet metal.

  • 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...
