A husband borrowing his wife’s car for the day decided that their new biking hobby would be even more fun if they could explore new places. He stopped by Rack N Road, we threw on some Yakima FrontLoaders, and he was off to surprise his wife with some new, easy-to-use bike racks.
One of the quickest and easiest racks to use is the Yakima FrontLoader. It takes less than 5 minutes, no tools required, to attach the FrontLoader on your vehicle’s crossbars. Once that’s on, putting your bike on the rack is just as simple. Lift the bike on to the rack and the rear arm lifts up to pinch the front tire, and a ratcheting strap at the rear of the rack secures the back tire.
The FrontLoader is compatible with round, square, aerodynamic factory or aftermarket crossbars, and is fully locking (locks sold separately) to ensure your bike and bike rack remain on your vehicle. It is compatible with a wide variety of bike shapes and sizes, 20″ – 29″ wheel bases and 3″ wide tires, and protects carbon fiber or fancy paint jobs by holding onto the tires – not the frame. Similar bike racks with the same functions and style often price at $190 – $200, making the FrontLoader a high quality but lower price solution.
