Yakima FrontLoader universal mounting hardware

If you have a roof rack, a bike and a destination, then all you need to get there is the FrontLoader. This premium wheel mount holds just about any bike and fits round, square and most aero and factory crossbars with universal mounting hardware - no annoying adapters required.

Yakima FrontLoader cradling wheel arms

You can mount your bike on FrontLoader without removing the front wheel, cutting the loading time drastically compared with fork-mounted designs. The bike remains vertical as you roll it into place on FrontLoader's cradling wheel arms.

Yakima FrontLoader adjustable tire holderYakima FrontLoader cradling tire holders

The front tire is cradled firmly but gently by a pair of adjustable arms, or wheel hoops. The larger, outermost arm features a sliding wheel grip that is labeled with wheel sizes and that adjusts for the perfect fit over your tire. The innermost, smaller, ratcheting wheel hoop is then pulled up into position to grab the back half of the front tire.

Yakima FrontLoader tuning knob for tire cradles

The cradling wheel arms are fine-tuned for the perfect fit around your tire with an adjustment knob, and they are easily released with a push of the red button. Cradling your bike by the tires, the FrontLoader avoids contact with the frame, so your paint job remains pristine. The carrier accommodates wheel sizes from 20" to 29" and easily accepts bikes with disc brakes, thru axles or non-traditional suspensions.

Yakima FrontLoader wheel tray with ratcheting strap

The fully adjustable, sliding wheel tray holds most bike sizes, from monster freeride bikes to girls' bikes with tassels on the handlebars. Rear wheels are secured in place on the tray with a ratcheting wheel strap. Ratchets are on both sides of the strap for easy loading and unloading from either side of your vehicle.

Yakima FrontLoader integrated cable lock

An integrated security cable that is compatible with 1 Same Key System (SKS) lock core (sold separately) keeps your bike safe on the rack. The cable deploys from the inner arm and stores inside it when not in use. The cable can also lock the carrier to your crossbars when no bike is mounted.

Yakima FrontLoader folds flat for storage

The upright arms of the FrontLoader fold flat when not in use, cutting wind resistance and allowing for easy storage.

Yakima FrontLoader lock plug for additional SKS lock core

The carrier installs on your crossbars with clamps, and the tension of the front clamp is controlled by an integrated handle. The bike rack locks to your roof-rack crossbars with an additional SKS core (sold separately).

Video Transcript for Yakima FrontLoader Roof Bike Rack Review

Today, we'll be taking a look at the Yakima FrontLoader Roof-Mounted Bike Rack, part number Y02103. This Yakima bike rack allows us to carry one bike on the roof of our vehicle safely and securely. It has a unique mounting system, which grabs our front tire, holds it in place by tightening this knob here. The universal clamping system allows it to fit around your round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory roof rack systems. As you can see, I've got it around the Yakima round bars here today and has a nice secure fit. For our frontloader here, we've got an adjustable top wheel cradle, and that's going to accommodate anywhere from 20 to 29-inch wheel sizes, including your kid's bikes and your road bikes.

Simply undo this lever here and we then we can adjust it up and down. We've got a lever on both sides. Our wheel tray provides excellent support for our wheel tire and it's cut out in the center, which is going to allow dirt and debris to not get built up in the center. Our rear wheel strap uses a unique ratcheting system, so that we can make sure that our rear wheel is nice and secure while we're driving down the road. It comes with an integrating locking cable attached to the rear of our frontloader here. Simply undo it, can bring it through our tire, and lock it in place.

There's also a place in the front here for a locking core, so we can lock our lever in place. Those are going to be sold separately. Now, that we've gone over some of the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to install it. You want to make sure that both of our clamps are opened ready to receive our load bars. Now, let's go ahead and set it on our crossbars. Now, it's important to have a crossbar spread between 16 and 48 inches for this to safely work out, so we've got 28 inches here today.

We can go ahead and begin by setting our front clamp around our crossbar. We'll come up here to our handle upfront and tighten that down and it's going to squeeze the clamp to our crossbar underneath. Once we get that tightened, we can move on to the back. I'm going to go ahead and move the tire hold out of the way. That way I can adjust the rear clamps, so I'm going to lift up on the bike rack and slide it forward and set that evenly on the rubber pad here.

Now, we'll grab our clamp from before and back here you'll notice these 3 notches. This is so it makes it universal to work around whatever load bar you might have. We're going to go with the top notch there. Just put it in like this. You may have to pick up on the bike rack a little bit. No big deal. Just put that in place, set it back down, and swing it underneath. Then, we'll take our gun screw with the T on the bottom and push that through the clamp and turn it so it locks into place underneath the clamp like that. Now, we can tighten that down. No reason to over-tighten. Make sure it's nice and secure so it doesn't slide on our crossbars and we got it. Now, we're almost ready to load up our bike. We'll make sure that our rear strap is undone, just push on this button here and pull it out. If you can, just tuck it away or move it out of the way. For our frontloader, we'll need to make sure that the bottom portion of the tire hold is laying flat on the bike rack, and then if we need to check our tire size, we can just simply undo our latches here and adjust it. We already had that set up. We'll just move that back in place and secure that. All right. Now, we'll grab out bike and we'll come up. We'll set the front tire in first, and you'll want to roll it forward so that the bottom portion of our frontloader raises up and then we can set the rear tire down, making sure that our strap goes between our spokes, just like that. Now, with our tire in place, the only thing left to do is tighten down our red knob, and it's going to draw our frontloader together holding our tire in place. Now, let's tighten down our rear strap, and we're ready to hit the road. This is our test course. Let's start with the slalom. This shows side-to-side action, such as turning turning corners or evasive maneuvering. Then, on to our alternating speed bumps, this shows twisting action, such as hitting curbs, pot holes, road debris, or uneven pavement. Last of all, the solid speed bumps, this shows up-and-down action such as driving through a parking lot or parking garage or driving in and out of a driveway. That's going to complete our look at the Yakima FrontLoader Roof-Mounted Bike Rack, part number Y02103. .

Great rack! Many improvement over the current yakima product. Easy to install, easy to mount bike, everything quick to turn by hand-no tools necessary. May have to get another one. 571203

Holds bike nice and firm, no wiggling around. And if you have a 27.5 all mountain bike and a 700c road bike it fits both with no adjustment. When bike rack is mounted on a SUV roof it is a little high getting the bike up there. I use a small 3 step ladder to get it up on the roof. 317017

Very good website. How-to videos are well done, short, sweet and to the point. Nice also to see a photo of the actual human beings who participated in the product video, research, etc. Excellent shipping and follow up. I asked a question about very precise technical detail about the bike rack I bought (two actually) and the help desk guy replied quickly with just what I needed. Nice. Actual people. I have learned from experience that if you want good service, have real, competent, people on the job. That big box website is OK, but this is better. :-) :-) :-) 564272

Very good product. It holds the bike securely on the roof without contacting the frame. It is easy to adjust from my road bike to my 29er mountain bike. Our drives are all relatively short, so I like that I do not need to remove the front wheel to lock in the bike. It's also nice that the SKS locking system allows me to use the same key for this rack that I use for my Yakima roof box and hitch rack. This is my first roof rack and I chose this route for a couple reasons. Some of the roads we travel to get to our trail heads are a bit rough and with a roof rack I don't have to worry about bottoming out a hitch rack hanging off the back of the vehicle. Also, it takes up less room in the garage. Our vehicle is a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with an additional 4 inches of ground clearance. That makes it a bit of a reach for my 5'4" wife, so we take our two-step along to help her. This is my third time purchasing from etrailer, and each experience has been very good. They are a very customer service oriented company. I really appreciate all the additional information they provide on their products, especially all the videos they produce to aid in reviews, assembly, and use. 551078

The Yakima Y02103 roof mounted bike rack is well-engineered to perform. It is easy to install, and easy to get a bike on and off the rack. I drive a 2008 Ford Escape and am 5' 6" tall, so I need to use a small step ladder which I keep in the back of my vehicle. My downhill mtb weighs about 40 pounds and feels very secure on the roof of my SUV. With the wind resistance there is a noticeable dip in fuel economy, however--the biggest downside about having a roof mounted bike rack. 44212

Well built and solid. Installs in minutes. Bike does sway while driving but stays in the rack with no worries of it falling out. One complaint is that for the money you spend on this rack it should come with the locks instead of having to buy them separately. If you are considering purchasing this rack, one thing to consider is the type of car you own verses the amount of energy you have after your ride. I own an SUV type vehicle and after an 80 mile ride I just don't have the energy to get my bike up on the roof of my car. It can be a challenge. 37103

Was surprised to find the item fully assembled when it arrived. Was very easy to install and holds my mountain bike very securely. It sometimes will grab the knobs on the tire so you have to fight a little to get it free, but I see this as a very small inconvenience. 209608

Great rack! Easy to install--it took me only a few minutes to install the rack onto the factory bars of my old Honda CR-V. The installation instructions were great and easy to follow. I also loaded my gravel grinder bike onto the rack with no problem, though it is significantly easier with a ladder or step stool. Took the bike on rack on a 8 hour roundtrip and it worked great, feels stable. So great that this rack fits on factory bars as well as Yakima's proprietary rook rack system. My only minor issues are that on factory bars are curved, so the bike rack leans a bit, but it didn't affect the stability. Also, given how important the locks are to keeping the bike secure, it seems silly that they are sold separately. Other than those two issues, the rack is terrific. I might even buy a second one. 399144

The rails on our 2012 Honda Odyssey are slightly curved but the bike rack seems very secure The rails (installed by Honda) on our Honda Odyssey are slightly curved so the bikes are very slightly angled. But, the bike rack seems very secure. We are looking forward to taking our first trip pulling our popup camper and carrying the bikes on top of the van. I read the other reviews before buying this product and I am anticipating no problems. The sales rep from etrailer was very helpful and the racks arrived in just a couple of days and packed very securely. 151866

I ordered a Yakima FrontLoader Roof Mount Bike Carrier from etrailer, received it in 2 days, and had it installed and ready to go in about an hour. I had to move the factory crossbars on my 2002 Forester forward a bit so that the rack would not interfere with the car's liftgate, but other than that, had no difficulties at all. I used it today and it works very well -- the bike stayed rock solid on that rack at highway speeds. 270067

I had a terrible time attempting to find a bike rack system that would connect to my Nissan Frontier (with utili-track) that would enable me to keep my front wheel mounted (which was a must). etrailer was awesome. Melinda (my rep) made sure the rack system would work with my truck before I purchased it. The Yakima BedRock cargo rack fit perfectly, and the FrontLoader Bike Carrier holds the bike snugly. This is a perfect solution for anyone with a pickup. 214580

This rack is the shiznit!!! So easy to install and very stable once it's on your roof. My only initial struggle was to have he strength to carry my bike over my head, lift myself into the bottom of my door ledge with one leg, and then continue to lift and position my bike in the bike rack. If you don't have strong upper body strength, I would recommend the trunk rack as an alternative. I will say that I found a good alternate method to what I described above. First, place the side of the tires on your roof and hold your bike horizontally over your head. Then, while you're holding the bike, lift yourself on to your door ledge. This takes off a lot of the weight of the bike and makes it a heck of a lot easier to climb into my car. Then once you've positioned yourself, simply lift the bike and place it into the tire spacing a of the bike rack. Thanks, etrailer and thanks to Yakima for the delivery of a kickass product. 211219

The bike carrier is solid and easy to install...the only issue I have is that because of the way the cross bars are located on my Venza I loose the full use of the hatch...one solution is to mount the carrier backwads where the bike faces the rear and not forward...big deal...it may put a smile on the face of other drivers 188933

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes with a 2017 Chevrolet Volt
  • It sounds like you're trying to carry four bikes on a 2017 Chevrolet Volt. I have a solution for you, but the Volt is limited to only 2 bikes on a hitch mount carrier and we do not have any fits for roof racks to carry bikes. The only option we have to carry all 4 bikes is to install a hitch receiver on the Volt and tow the Yakima Rack and Roll # Y08106 behind it carrying the bikes. The Rack and Roll is basically Yakima roof rack on wheels so it can be used to carry a variety of things...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes With a 2016 Chevy Cruze
  • I do have a solution for you to carry 4 bikes, but since the trailer hitch receivers that are available for your 2016 Chevrolet Cruz are 1-1/4 inch Class I receivers you will be limited to a 2 bike carrier for the hitch. To carry 4 bikes you will need to install a roof rack and carry 2 bikes on your roof. As far as which hitch receiver I recommend, If you are going to have a shop install it I recommend the Draw-Tite Sport Frame # 24943 because it doesn't require the use of the Support...

  • Roof Cargo Basket Compatible with 9-mm Fork to Carry Bike

If your front wheel isn't easily removable then a better solution is to use the Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070-74 with a wheel mount bike rack like the FrontLoader # Y02103.

To mount a system to these slider rails you will need the Nylon Inserts - part # TAFX-42008 (8) as two are required per base.

  • Can Yakima HangOver 6 Bike Rack Be Used for Kids Bikes
  • I reached out to my contact at Yakima and she did say that the HangOver 6 Bike Rack # Y02485 is not going to be a good option to secure kids bikes. Since the carrier is a wheel-mount style and the cradles cannot be individually adjusted, all 6 bikes really need to be pretty similar in size. As you mentioned, the rack also isn't compatible with bikes that don't have the needed suspension forks for the cradle strap to attach to. This is the only 6 bike rack we have available but we do...

  • Roof Mounted Cargo Basket and Bike Rack for 2018 Honda Fit
  • There is an option for you to have a cargo basket with a bike rack on your 2018 Honda Fit, though there is nowhere to attach a bike rack on the Thule Canyon XT # TH859XT. Instead, I recommend the Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07070 along with the Yakima FrontLoader Wheel Mount Bike Carrier # Y02103 and you would be set. The FrontLoader will clamp onto the LoadWarrior cargo basket making it simple to attach whenever you want to take your bike with you and even folds flat...

  • The Yakima FrontLoader Roof Bike Rack, # Y02103, and the Raptor Aero Bike Rack, # Y02093, were designed to fit most factory crossbars like that on your 2009 Toyota Sienna. I have attached the installation instructions for these bike racks for you to check out.

  • Roof Rack, Bike Rack and Cargo Box Recommendation for 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric
  • Sometimes cars won't ever have a trailer hitch available so assuming you are looking to carry bikes or cargo on a 2019 Hyundai Kona EV you can still do so with a roof rack. So long as your '19 Kona EV has flush-mounted rails that run front to back (as opposed to a naked roof with no rails at all on top) the best option is from Yakima: - Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 (Black) or # Y00428 (Silver) - RidgeLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y00145 - RidgeClip Fit Kit for Yakima...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid with Sun Roof
  • For your 2018 Toyota Camry Yakima has the CoreBar roof rack with aero shaped crossbars part numbers # Y00421, # Y00146, and # Y06192 that can be used on vehicles with sun roofs. But Yakima states to keep it closed when the rack is installed. For a carrier to carry your two kayaks we have the Thule Stacker part # TH830 then that would work well. This rack will hold the kayaks on end. See install video I attached.

  • Yakima Locks for a Yakima FrontLoader Wheel Mount Bike Carrier
  • All of the Yakima SKS locks are the same size and shape they just take different keys. For a set of 2 keys, 2 locks, and the control key to be able to install the locks use # Y07202. They will fit the lock spaces on your rack and both locks take the same key.

  • Will Bike Rack Fit on Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215
  • The crossbars of the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215 are compatible with roof bike racks as they are dimensions that were intended for fitting them. The Yakima FrontLoader bike rack part # Y02103 will fit the bars and will allow you to carry a bike without having to take the front wheel off.

  • Roof Rack Needed to Carry Roof Box, Bike Rack, and Kayak on a 2006 Honda Pilot
  • Out of the Yakima and Thule options for the naked roof on your 2006 Honda CR-V I recommend going with Yakima. The Thule options have bars that end inside the foot packs. This gives the roof rack a great OEM look but minimizes the amount of crossbar space that can be used. To use a JetStream aero bar roof rack on your CR-V you will need the JetStream bars, part # Y00425 for Black or part # Y00428 for Silver, along with the SkyLine Towers # Y00148, and the Landing Pad 8 # Y00228. If you...

  • Can A 2004 BMW X5 Carry 2 Bikes on the Roof with Yakima Y00450-2 Roof Rack Cross Bars
  • The Yakima # Y00450-2 crossbars will mount to your 2004 BMW X5 factory installed rails that run front to back. You always need to abide by the manufacturer's weight rating for your vehicle when installing items on the roof. If you cannot find the capacity rating for the roof in the owner's manual a call to the dealer should help find the information you need. The bars themselves have a 165 lb weight capacity, but that could be limited by the roof weight capacity if it's less. As long...

  • Will the Yakima Frontloader fit Factory Crossbars of a 2016 Kia Sorento
  • Yes, I checked with Yakima and the Yakima FrontLoader Wheel Mount Bike Carrier # Y02103 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for the factory crossbars of your 2016 Kia Sorento so it would work well for you. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Roof Rack and Rooftop Tent for 2017 Toyota Tacoma
  • We do not carry the Diamondback covers so I am unfamiliar with how they work or if accessories can be drilled into them so I recommend contacting the manufacturer to ensure it is safe to do what you are seeking to do. If so, the only option we have for crossbars is the Rhino Rack # Y04-260; you will need to drill into your cover to get these to work. There is a rooftop tent compatible with these bars, the Yakima SkyRise # Y07407, which is a two-person tent that will install on your crossbars...

  • Recommended Roof Rack Bike Rack to Carry Road Mountain and Fat Bikes
  • The Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 will only fit tire sizes up to 2-1/2 inches wide, but I may have a solution for you. The Rhino-Rack Hybrid # RRRBC050-FB is a wheel mount bike for fat bikes. It can fit 20 to 29 inch bikes. It is large enough to hold a fat bike but the straps will tighten around the wheels of mountain and road bikes as well.

  • Compatibility of Rhino Rack Roof Rack Feet w/ Thule AeroBlade Crossbars
  • The mechanism the Rhino Rack # RRRLKVA uses to attach to the crossbars is different enough that the Rhino Rack feet wouldn't be compatible with your existing Thule AeroBlade crossbars, I'm sorry to say. I checked with Thule, and did indeed confirm that they for some reason don't offer a roof rack solution for your Altima. Your best bet would be to install a Rhino-Rack roof rack using the following parts: 44 inch Vortex Aero Crossbars, part # RRVA118B-2 for black or # RRVA118S-2 for...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
  • The bike racks that get used on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer 78" part # Y08107 that you referenced are actually roof rack style bike racks. A pair of Yakima FrontLoader bike racks like the part # Y02103 would be all you need. This rack fits the crossbars you have directly and also allows you to keep the front wheel installed too.

  • Will Yakima FrontLoader Roof Bike Rack Fit Factory Crossbars of 2014 Subaru Outback
  • I checked with Yakima and their FrontLoader part # Y02103 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon factory crossbars. The advantage the Inno part # INA389 has is that it grabs the front and rear tires in the same way for a very secure connection. If it were me I would go with the Yakima as it works just as well and would be a bit less work to mount the bikes.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Bike Rack for 2019 Ford F-350 Crew Cab
  • We have everything you need to secure your bikes on the roof of your 2019 Ford F-350 Crew Cab. Starting with the roof rack I recommend the Yakima JetStream System. This consists of either the Silver # Y00429 or Black # Y00426 aluminum JetStream Crossbars, the BaseLine Towers # Y00146, and the BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06185. This will provide you with a really sleek, aerodynamic system for a quiet ride and better fuel efficiency when compared to round or square bar racks. I have attached...
