Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Chevrolet Equinox

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Equinox, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Yakima full back two-bike trunk mount rack, Part Number Y02634.Now, we already have a bike installed. Let's take a closer look and show off some of the features.Now, we're going to have on each end of the arm an integrated cable lock that can come and wrap around your second bike and latch onto that notch right there, and then you can use your set of keys that comes with the bike rack to insert it there and unlock it. On the other arm, you're going to have a bottle opener that Yakima likes to put on all of their products.Our bike has three different points where it's secured to our bike rack. We have two zip strips on the top of our bike frame. Then we have a zip strip right here securing it into the anti-rattle cradle. Once that's secured, this can prevent the bike from shaking too much while we're traveling.

Now this bike rack's also available in silver if you like that and that's part number HIT2S. Now you can get both of those colors in a 3 bike version with part number HIT3B and HIT3S.So anyway I've already got it loaded up just to give you a good idea of how it's going to hold our bikes and how it's going to look on our Caravan.

Kuat Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Dodge Dart

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Dodge Dart, we're going to be taking a look at the Kuat Highline three bike trunk mounted rack. This is part number HIT3B. This is also available in silver, part number HIT3S. One of the nice things about this bike rack is that it is made of a durable extruded aluminum. So that means it's going to be really durable and long lasting. But it's still going to be lightweight enough that we don't have to worry about having a really heavy bike rack on the back of our trunk.Now a couple things to keep in mind actually with this bike rack.


Kuat Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Volkswagen Passat

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Volkswagen Passat we're gonna be doing a test fit on a Kuat Highline Three Bike Trunk Mount Rack. That part number's HIT3S.Now we have the silver installed right now, however it does come in black under part number HIT3B.This is a trunk mounted bike rack that mounts to the trunk of your vehicle, and it can carry up to three bikes. This is gonna be one of the nice hybrid versions of a trunk mount bike rack. It's very light, so it's gonna be very easy to install, but it's also gonna be durable and be able to support your bikes very well.If we look at the bike and how it's attached to the rack, excuse me, we're gonna see we have to ratchet straps on the top of our bike frame securing it into the cradles. We also have a third point with an anti-sway cradle and a strap. Once we secure that, that's gonna prevent our bike from swaying too much while we're traveling.

Trunk Bike Racks Questions and Answers

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Honda CR-V that Allows Rear Cargo Door to Open
  • The only bike rack solution for your 2018 Honda CR-V that will allow you to open the cargo area with bikes loaded is going to be a hitch option. Since you plan on leaving the rack for an extended period of time this is also a much better option than a trunk rack as trunk racks can scratch painted surfaces if left on for too long. So you'd need a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 76128 so that you can use a swing away bike rack. My favorite bike rack to recommend is the Thule Vertex...

  • Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback
  • The best option we have for carrying a bike rack on a 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback is a hitch mounted option. Hitches are the most secure, easiest to load, do not affect fuel mileage, don't touch any painted surfaces, easiest to lock bikes and racks to and are not the most expensive route (that's roof rack). Trunk racks aren't quite as secure and they touch the vehicle paint so they aren't my first pick. Plus there are no trunk fits for the hatchback 2018 Civics. So a hitch option like...

  • Which 2 Bike Rack Will Work On A Ford Escape Without A Trailer Hitch
  • Since you do not have a hitch on your Ford Escape you can use a trunk bike rack. Thule and Yakima will both have two choices each that will carry two bikes and fit a Ford Escape. The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, will fit on a Ford Escape. It has a weight capacity of 70 lbs. and attaches to the vehicle by six straps for added stability.. 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...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with Spoiler
  • I'm assuming the photo attached is your Crosstrek and because of the spoiler, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2. This is specifically made for vehicles like yours to avoid contact and damage to a spoiler. This is a very versatile and adjustable bike rack to meet your needs. I do recommend the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005 as well as the Softride # SR18679 to secure your front wheel to...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • Typically we do not recommend using trunk mounted bike racks on vehicles that have spoilers. Most plastic and fiberglass spoilers cannot handle the weight of a bike rack and bikes and will bend or even break sooner or later. If the spoiler on your 2013 Mazda 3 hatchback is metal and part of the rear hatch, rather than a separate plastic or fiberglass spoiler, then you can use a trunk mounted bike rack without having to worry about the weight of the rack damaging the spoiler. You can...

  • How to Prevent Theft of a Trunk Mounted Bike Rack
  • The only anti-theft device we have for using a trunk mounted bike rack like the Thule Passage part # TH910XT is the Thule Passive Security Strap # TH533. You will basically loop the nylon covered steel strap around the frame of the rack to form a slip knot and then would close the puck of the strap in the trunk so that the only way to fully separate the rack from the vehicle would be to open the trunk. Another option is the Thule Raceway trunk rack part # TH9001PRO. All of the straps...

  • Recommended Bike Carrier For 2015 Honda CR-V
  • There are a couple different style bike racks that may work for you. You stated you want a bike rack that goes behind your CR-V and not on the roof. We offer trunk mount bike racks and the other style bike rack we offer would be a hitch-mounted bike rack. The trunk mount bike rack I recommend is the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier, part # SA805BL. This is an easy bike rack to put on and take off the rear of your CR-V. It uses 6 straps to secure it to the back of the vehicle and has an...

  • How to Carry a Womens Bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack
  • All you would need is an adapter bar to carry a women's bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack part # SA805BL. An adapter bar like the part # 64005 would attach to the seat post of your bike and at the steering stem to provide a horizontal attachment point for the bike rack. Check out the review video I attached for this product as well.

  • Difference Between Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2 Bike and 3 Bike Racks
  • The difference between the Yakima FullBack, part # Y02634 and the HalfBack, part # Y02636 is that the FullBack is fully loaded. The Yakima FullBack includes integrated bike and rack locks, which provide improved security over the HalfBack that does not have these locks. Beyond that, they are identical racks. They are available in 3 Bike variations as well, as part # Y02633 for the FullBack and part # Y02635 for the HalfBack. I've included a video review of both racks so you...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Leased 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Hatchback
  • I did some checking and there are some trunk mount bike racks that you can use on your leased 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-door hatchback. For a 2-bike rack you can use either the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 or the FullBack # Y02634. For 3 bikes the HalfBack model is # Y02635 and the FullBack model is # Y02633. These racks will work even if the vehicle has a rear spoiler at the top of the hatch because the rack is positioned in such a way as to not put any stress on the spoiler. I included a picture...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes with a Toyota Prius V
  • What you have read is correct. The only hitches available for the Prius V are Class I. The bike rack and hitch manufacturers all agree that more than 2 bikes should be carried on a rack installed in a Class I receiver. Two factors contribute to this, the low 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the Class I receiver and the fact that any additional bikes after the second one would extend the load far enough rearward of the receiver opening that the extra leverage exerted could either damage...

  • Recommended Trunk Mount Bike Rack that Won't Scratch or Dent 2015 Mercedes-Benz 300C
  • Let me begin by saying that anytime you have a piece of equipment strapped to the painted finish of a vehicle, the potential for scratches or dents exists, no getting around it. This being said, the risks can be minimized by putting as little weight as possible on the racks and by observing the racks weight capacity, by installing the rack exactly as described in the instructions, and by keeping the surfaces where the rack and vehicle touch absolutely clean. A good coat of quality car...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation and Comparison of Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2-Bike Trunk Racks
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack. The difference between the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and the FullBack # Y02634 is that the FullBack comes with integrated locks that lock the bikes to rack and rack to vehicle. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches. But honestly it...

  • Differences Between the Thule Archway, Gateway and Passage
  • The best of the three you mentioned is the Thule Archway XT part # TH9009XT. This rack has an integrated cable lock and upgraded frame cradles. Aside from that it is the exact same as the # TH9006XT. The big advantage the two mentioned racks have over the # TH910XT is the adjustable arms. This rack has a fixed position for the arms of the rack so the bikes might be carried at a sharp angle. The other two racks allow you to adjust the angle of the arms so that the bikes can be carried...

  • What Trunk-Mount Bike Carriers Will Clear Rear Spoiler on 2010 Lexus RX350
  • A rear spoiler often poses a challenge to the fit of a trunk-mount bike carrier. Several manufacturers offer carriers designed expressly for compatibility with this feature, but note that in most instances it is recommended that only a 2-bike carrier be used on such vehicles, including your Lexus RX350. Note also that a rear wiper cannot be used with a trunk-mount carrier installed. I have provided a link to our product page for trunk-mount 2-bike carriers that can be used on your RX350....

  • Can you Open the Trunk when the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier is Installed on a Mazda CX-5
  • If you need truck access often, I have a solution for you, but bike rack manufacturers do not recommend opening the rear hatch or trunk with a bike rack installed. The door hinges are not designed to hold the extra weight and the rear door could come down on whoever is underneath. There is also a chance that the bike rack could fall off and scratch the paint. If you need to access the trunk often, I suggest a hitch mounted bike rack which can fold down, giving you access to open the...
