Review of the Yakima FrontLoader Roof Bike Rack on a 2013 Mazda 5


Today on our 2013 Mazda5 we're going to be test fitting the Yakima FrontLoader, a wheel mount roof bike rack, part number Y02103. With our Yakima Control Towers Roof Rack System already installed on the 5, we'll begin our test fit by placing our bike rack directly onto our crossbars. Here at the front, the two outside portions of our clamp will be located in front of our crossbar, while the center portion of our clamp will be located behind. We'll then tighten the black t-handle located on the front to secure the clamp around our bar. With this secure, we can move to the rear. Here we'll loosen the black t-handle, remove the t-bolt from the lower portion of the clamp, bring that portion around the underside of our crossbar, reinsert the t-bolt into the appropriate slot, and tighten down the t-handle. With both front and rear secure, we're now ready to load up our bike. We'll begin by undoing our rear wheel strap, and also extending the larger portion of our front wheel clamp.

We can then grab our bike, place it onto the bike rack. We'll allow it roll forward. As we do this the smaller portion of our front wheel clamp will come up behind our wheel. We'll secure it here first by tightening down the large red knob. We can then move to the rear wheel and secure it with the strap. Just like that our bike's loaded up and we're ready to hit the road.

That will complete today's test fit of the Yakima FrontLoader, part number Y02103, on our 2013 Mazda5. .
