Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Yakima SpareRide

The Yakima SpareRide lets you carry 2 bikes on your vehicle's factory spare tire. The rack features folding dual arms and SuperCush anti-sway cradles with ratcheting ZipStrip straps. It installs with a hand knob and universal mounting plate, and it includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradles with Ratcheting ZipStrip Straps

SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradles

The Yakima SpareRide has premium cradles to carry and protect your bikes during transport. The anti-sway cradles limit bike movement to help prevent bike-to-bike contact. Premium TPE padding protects your bikes' frames from damage by absorbing road shock and vibration.


Ratcheting ZipStrip Staps

The cradles also include ratcheting ZipStrip straps that make loading and unloading your bikes a breeze. Simply insert the strap into the buckles on the cradle and push it down until it's snug around your bike frame. The ZipStrips can be removed quickly by pressing the release levers on the sides of each anti-sway cradle.


Folding Dual Arms

SpareRide Folding Dual Arms

The SpareRide's dual arms provide excellent stability for your bikes during transport. The quick-release TriggerFinger control lever lets you quickly fold the arms down when you're not carrying any bikes. When you're ready to load the rack up again, simply lift the arms until they lock in place with an audible click.


Easy Installation with Universal Mounting Plate

SpareRide Mounting Plate

The rack installs on your spare tire mount with a plate and shank. The mounting plate fits over the lug nuts of your spare tire mount, and the shank extends from the plate through your spare tire's pilot hole. You can position this plate at 12 o'clock or 6 o'clock, depending on your lug nut pattern.


SpareRide Locking Hand Knob

Once the plate is installed, simply replace your spare tire, slide the rack onto the exposed shank, and tighten the hand knob.


Spare Ride Extensions for Oversized Tires

The system comes with a standard shank and 2 extensions shanks so you can mount the rack on vehicles with oversize tires up to 12-1/2" wide. The shanks swap out easily with the included Allen wrench.


Rubber TireTread Spacers

Rubber TireTread Spacers

The SpareRide features a pair of rubber TireTread spacers on the back of the rack. These spacers stabilize the rack against the spare tire and help protect the rack and your bikes from vibration. These spacers also guard your spare against damage caused by the rack rubbing against the tire.


Complete Security

SpareRide Cable Lock and Locking Knob

The SpareRide includes 2 keyed-alike Same Key System lock cores - one in the cable lock and the other in the hand knob. The cable lock wraps around your bikes, through the built-in anchor point on the front of the mast, and locks to itself. The hand knob tightens the rack to your spare tire. These SKS cores can be swapped out to make all your Yakima gear keyed alike.


Integrated Bottle Openers

Integrated Bottle Opener

An integrated bottle opener on the end of each arm allows you to enjoy a cold one after a long ride.

The product is excellent. Fit my car easily and it has never come loose. I did add Blue Locktite to the threads(just a dot - not too much) and have taken it on and off just twice in the year. The other modification I made was to spread the bike mounts a little further apart on the rails. This meant I had to use a screwdriver to remove a single screw on each and drill new pilot holes about an inch out from the factory ones. This had made it much easier to mount two mountain bikes although I wish I had another 2 inches. Very pleased overall as I don't mind modifying gear a little to meet my needs. Other note - Car Washes such as Mikes won't let you through with this rack. I just go elsewhere. 674995

1 year of use and I am extremely pleased with the Bike Rack. Installed easy, fits well, holds bikes very securely, easy and quick to put bikes on and off with the U shaped straps that click into place like a snowboard binding. Mounting lock and cable lock work great. I do use an extra bungee cord wrapped around bike frames and hooked onto bike rack to even minimize swinging of bikes more. Both men's frame bikes and women's frames with the add-on cross bar work well. Bikes clear Jeep body when swung open. Only issue was with the 2012 Jeep Wrangler 2 door. The metal arm that controls swinging open of rear door failed twice. It was due to the weight of the rack plus bikes overpowering the cheap little pins at the end of the control bar. Added my own strap from a boat trailer winch strap to limit door swing travel from going too far and breaking the arm again. See picture of strap and metal arm. Overall a great bike rack. -Fred O. 651822

Perfect ordering process, carrier arrived exactly when projected. My installation was flawless after watching several videos for the product. I had no surprises and everything fit as expected. Our bicycles will mount better on the carrier once I receive tubetop crossbar adapters that will allow the bikes to remain level on the carrier. I just ordered those. I can't ask for any better service/support from etrailer.com You folks rock!! 503735

I have no quarrels with the product whatsoever. It is built to withstand The Bomb. My bike rides very steady and seems to withstand all road experiences. Because of the way my bike is built, I had to buy a cross-piece to make it sit level. This piece is VERY heavy and it is all I can do to lift the bike onto the rack. (I am tiny and old.) If I had to do it over again, I would continue putting the bike in the back of my RAV4 because the frequency of use doesn't warrant my expense. 369050

  • How to Remove Yakima Y02599 SpareTime Bike Rack From Spare Tire Mounting Bracket Once Rusted
    Your best bet would be to remove the spare temporarily from the vehicle, place the bracket flat on the ground so the shank is pointing upward and hit the bolt holes shown in the provided diagram with a spray lubricant like PB Blaster. Do this several times over the course of a few hours. Then, bolt the spare tire back on the vehicle with the bracket in place. Use a rubber mallet and tap all 4 sides of the mast sharply several times, working your way around. You'll want to hit it pretty...

  • Can the Yakima SpareRide Bike Rack be Used on an RV Spare Tire
    While the Yakima SpareRide # Y02599 cannot be used on an RV spare tire there are other racks that you can use. However, none of the compatible racks mount to the spare tire itself but if your RV has a 4 to 4-1/2 inch square steel bumper then you could use the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe rack # S80501. The bumper would also need to be rated for the combined weight of the rack (about 10 pounds) and the bikes. If your RV does not have the proper kind of bumper then you could install...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Rear Mounted Spare
    Since you have the rear backup camera mounted to the rear spare of your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited the only way we can offer for you to carry bikes is with a hitch mounted bike rack. There isn't a way to fit a spare mounted bike rack on your current setup. For a hitch you'd want the etrailer hitch part # E98856 that has a longer hitch tube to help with allowing the bike rack to clear past the rear spare. Then for a bike rack with a longer shank that will allow the rack to easily fit...

  • Why Cant a Spare Tire Bike Rack Be Used on 5th Wheel
    Because the suspension of a fifth wheel is stiffer than a passenger vehicle, and because the rear overhang (distance between rear axle and rear bumper) is longer than what's found on a passenger vehicle. Because of this, anything mounted on the rear of a fifth wheel will be exposed to much more bouncing and jarring than something installed on rear of a passenger vehicle. Remember how bouncy it was sitting in the back seat of the school bus? Same principle. The spare tire bike racks we...

For example, the Yakima SpareRide 2-Bike Rack # Y02599, Hollywood Racks SR2 2-Bike Carrier # HRSR2, and Thule Spare Me 2-Bike Rack # TH963PRO each fit both a 2010 Wrangler and 2005 Liberty.

The SpareTime bike carrier includes two extensions they will allow you to fit a wide range of spare tire widths. It will fit a spare tire width from P195 (7.7 inches) to P318 (12.5 inches). You may also need to use a bike adapter bar like the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, item # Y02531, for alternative frame bicycles.
