Will the Swagman Bike Cover Work With the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack


I have a Yakima Holdup for two bikes. The bikes have 26inch Wheels or 27inch wheels. Will this Swagman work with this rack? Thank you.

The physical footprint of a two bike platform rack like the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack part # Y02443 is going to be relativity the same for most bike and rack combos with there being only a few small variations between brands. Therefore, the Swagman Bike Cover part # S24FR should work just fine and I have attached a photo for you below to help determine this yourself.

That said, it's not really possible for us to test every bike rack and bike combo under the cover so you will just need to take some measurements of your setup beforehand but I really don't think you will have any issues as again most two bike platform racks are going to have similar dimensions.

I have the Yakima Hold Up 2 rack, however my bike has a 29 wheel that makes the length 71.5 long, is there a fudge factor in the measuring as instructions show 70 is the length of the cover, if not do you have another cover that might work.

The cover would be able to stretch a bit, but I think the 71-1/2" total length of your bikes will make for a really tight fit. You may be able to put it on, but you won't want to take it off (or put it on again). Unfortunately this is the only cover we currently have available.
