Video Transcript for Yakima Universal Fork Adapter Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Yakima Universal Fork Adapter for 15-mm Thru Axles, part number Y02099. The Yakima Fork Adapter enables you to carry up to one bike with a thru axle and attach it to your 9-mm skewer bike rack. It's designed to work with 15-mm thru axles only and can be utilized with any Yakima 9-mm skewer bike rack or pretty much any other 9-mm skewer bike rack as well.If you notice at the bottom here, it does come with built-in safety tabs on the bottoms of both sides. This has a black powder-coat finish, which makes it corrosion resistant. There's also plenty of space between this point and our bike rack where you can run a Yakima cable lock through, which you can find on etrailer.com. To take it off the bike rack, it's just as easy as loosening up the skewer like you would for any other bike for these 9-mm skewer bike racks.When comparing this with other products, one that comes up is gonna be the Thule universal adapter, part number TH53015.

When comparing these two side by side, the most economical is gonna be the Yakima Universal Fork Adapter. It also has the built-in safety tabs, which the Thule does not. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the Universal Fork Adapter, let's go ahead and show you how it works.Once you get it out of the package, this is pretty much everything you're gonna see here. Next, we'll give you some real quick measurements and dimensions, so you know that for your bike rack. The bike adapter measures a little over four and a quarter inches wide at the base and at the top it's gonna measure about three and seven-eighths of an inch wide here.

It's gonna be about an inch thick on both sides. The total height is gonna be about four inches to the top here.We'll start by removing our wheel inaudible 00:01:38 thru axle here, like so. Now we'll take our tire and set it off to the side. We'll take our adapter, place it in, install our thru axle here, and tighten it up. Now you don't want to over-tighten this.

Close that up. Now we can set it on our bike rack.When come to our bike rack, we want to make sure that it's in the open position and ready to receive our adapter and then we would just put our bike into place like we would for any bike for the 9-mm skewer style bike rack. We'll tighten down our skewer. Once everything's tightened down, give it a good shake test, make sure it's not gonna move. Now we're ready to hit the road.There you have it for the Yakima Universal Fork Adapter for 15-mm Thru Axles, part number Y02099..

Fits perfect. I'm very happy with the quality and price. 251589

The adapter works to mount the bike but it is a little awkward to use. The adapter itself can rotate around the skewer meaning the bike can initially move in unexpected ways as you put it on the roof. I have tried to mount to bike two ways--put the adapter in on the ground and then mount to the roof or mount the adapter to the roof and then put the bike up. In each case, it took a bit of wiggle to get the adapter and fork mated and to be honest I found that easier on the ground, which is the reverse of the suggested procedure. 104410

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Accessories and Parts

  • Where is Yakima Universal Fork Adapter Measured?
    If you take a look at the accompanying photo, you can see where the 15mm measurement of the Yakima Universal Fork Adapter for 15-mm Thru Axle Forks # Y02099 comes from. Your thru-axle fork would need to measure 15mm when aligned with the Adapter for it to work.

  • 15 mm Thru Axle Adapter Recommendation that Can Lock to Roof Bike Rack
    This is a great question. Sounds like you are trying to determine which of the 15 mm adapters will allow you to actually lock the bike to the roof rack. Of the three you mentioned the only one that actually locks the bike to the adapter and then the adapter to the roof bike rack is the RockyMounts part # RKY1081. The rest are only adapters that allow the bike to fit the rack, but when our demo guy says the word lock he means it is clamped to the rack. Not locked like "theft-deterrent"....

  • Comparison of Thule and RockyMount 15-mm Fork Adapter on Thule Circuit XT Roof Bike Rack
    We haven't had any complaints like that about the RockyMounts DriveShaft Fork Adapter # RKY1081. It does have the advantage of being used with 20-mm forks and it locks. With that being said you're certainly not going to go wrong with the Thule Fork Adapter # TH53015. It doesn't come with a locking feature however you can add one of Thule's One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450200. This way you'll be able to use the same key if you have any other Thule products..

  • Recommended Adapter for Fork Mounted Bike Carrier to Hold 15mm Thru-Axle Forks
    I was able to find your order of the Inno Fork Lock III Roof Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Clamp On - Aluminum # INA391. I reached out to my contact at Inno and he said they don't make an adapter but other manufacturers do that are compatible. I recommend the Yakima Universal Fork Adapter for 15-mm, Thru Axle Forks # Y02099, the Thule # TH53015, or the Swagman # S64706. All of these will be compatible, so it comes down to brand preference.
