Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Speaker 1: Today, in our 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, we're going to be test fitting the Yakima full back two bike rack for trunk mounts, part number Y02634.We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look here. Starting out with the arms, on the end of one we're going to have the Yakima bottle opener. However, on the other end, we're gonna have an integrated cable lock, which you wrap around the bike in the front and attach it to this point here to secure your bikes to the bike rack.The cradles are stationary, but they do have a super-cush 00:00:30 material where the bike is going to make contact with the rack, and this is to help prevent any scratches or anything like that getting to your frame.It's gonna grip your bike at three points. We'll have to zip strips up at the top, as well as one off to the side, and that's gonna be your anti-sway cradle to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth and causing bike-to-bike contact.Now, when it comes to loading and unloading bikes, what I recommend is you take that anti-sway cradle, and you push it up all the way, and that's gonna make unloading and loading much easier. You're not gonna have to go back and forth and shimmy it off when you're installing your bikes.Alright, lets go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside.


Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, we're going to be test fitting the Yakima half back two bike rack, for truck mounts. Part number Y02636. We already have a bike installed on the rack, let's take a closer look. We'll start with the arms. At then ends of both the arms, we're going to have the bottle openers. The cradles themselves are in fixed positions, but they do have the super cushioned material to help protect the frame of your bike once it's being installed, so it doesn't get any scratches or abrasions on it, while installing it.The anti-sway cradles do push up and out of the way, and that's going to make loading and unloading the bike much easier, so you don't have to kind of shimmy it back and forth to get it.


Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Nissan Maxima

Today on our 2014 Nissan Maxima we're doing a test fit of the Tulle Raceway Pro Trunk-Mounted 2 Bike Rack, part number TH9001PRO. As you can see we do already have our bike on the rack, so we're just going to show you how we strap everything down to start. We've got two cradles holding in our bike and three straps, two on the frame here and one as your anti-sway strap. To release those we're just going to pull down and lift up, saving that anti-sway strap for last. It's going to keep the bike from swinging back and forth and possibly damaging either your rack, bike, or your vehicle. Take that off and set it off to the side. A good habit to get into is to always replace your straps. Now that we've got those back in place we can take a few measurements.

We're first going to show you how we secure it in place. So, we have three straps all together. We've got two over the top portion of our bike or on the frame. And we have one as our anti-sway in the back. I'm going to start by pulling down and lifting up to release those then we can pull our bike off and set it off to the side.Now with our bike rake we do have stabilizer straps that you can wrap around your bikes to prevent them from moving back and forth and possibly making contact.

Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe we're going to be test fitting the Yakima 2-bike trunk-mount rack, part number Y02636. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's take a closer look here. Starting with our arms, at both arms we do have the bottle openers, which is pretty common with most Yakima bike racks. While the cradles are stationary, they do have the SuperCush material both at the base and at the top where the ZipStrip meets your frame to make sure that everything is not scratched up or marred up once it's being installed. It does have an anti-sway cradle which can be folded up out of the way to make loading and unloading the bikes much easier.

Trunk Bike Racks Questions and Answers

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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 # SA805. 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...

  • Trunk-Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for an Audi Q5 Without A Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • Vehicles like your 2013 Audi Q5 that have a rear roof-level spoiler can pose a challenge to fitting a trunk-mount bike rack. However, you can use the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier, part # HRF2. This unique 2-bike carrier is designed expressly to be compatible with roof-line spoilers by its use of upper arms that extend above and over the spoiler. Please refer to the linked photo and video that illustrate this carrier and its installation. If you need to transport more...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 2-Bikes on a 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid with Spoiler
  • The only 2-bike trunk mounted rack that will fit your 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid with spoiler is the Hollywood Racks # HRF2. 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 is the nature of the location of the rack and the elements it encounters while on the road. Dirt and debris will get caught by the rack and then rub against your paint....

  • Recommended Carrier for Schwinn Meridian Adult Trike on Toyota Prius
  • All of the hitches for the Toyota Prius are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers, so as long as you have a Class I trailer hitch you can use Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000R (for longer wheelbases) or # HR1000 and then add Trike Adapter, # HRTRK-ADP, to carry the trike. This set up is Class I compatible. I have linked instructions for you on the racks and adapter. You will need to stay within the 200 pound tongue weight rating of a class I hitch or the tongue weight rating...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carrier that Allows Rear Hatch to Open on 2015 Nissan Rogue
  • I will be happy to help you. First, if your 2015 Nissan Rogue does not already have a trailer hitch you will need one. I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75902. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. This is what you will need for the type of bike carrier you are looking for. I have linked a video showing how the hitch installs. For a bike carrier that will allow you to open the rear hatch with or without the bikes loaded I recommend the Vertex swinging bike carrier...

  • Will the Saris Bones Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a Honda CR-V
  • I you can tell me the year of your Honda CR-V I can make some specific recommendations. If it is a model that has a spare tire mounted on the back then we do have some spare tire racks that are likely to fit. And for models that do not have a rear mounted spare tire I am sure that we have trunk mount racks that will fit. The Saris Bones bike rack, # SA805, is listed as a fit from Saris for the 2012 to 2014 Honda CR-V. These models did not have the spare tire mounted on the back. I have...

The hitch I would recommend would be the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24873. This hitch will bolt-on to the rear of your vehicle.
