Don't Worry, We Have A Spare
hi im seeing reviews on the fat tyer bike that you have to let air out to make it fit what a lot of bull i have a fat tyer bike and it fits very good .so if your having trouble to fit your fat wheel bike on it your not doing it right
I really like this rack, loading and unloading are super easy. Folding it up when not in use is even easier! Bikes have always ridden securely on the road. It is a bit heavy, but its also well built.
Got home yesterday to find the bolt under the front tire that goes through the pivot had fallen out. I can't find a replacement anywhere, even from yakima. This is really disappointing. I think it's an M8 x 160mm with washers and nylon nut.
Yakima, please help!
I bought this rack so my son and I could take our bikes with us more places. It was easy to assemble, install, remove and secured our bikes well. Only downside is I guess we over loosened the speed knob the last time I removed it from my vehicle. The bracing mechanism came off of it and we didn't realize it until I went to install it again. It's lost now and it's out of stock on the parts site, both the speed knob and the 2" hitch. I'm stuck with a bike rack I can no longer use.
It’s odd that Yakima will not post a one star rating. Of all the racks I have owned, the Yakima Holdup EVO is definitely one of them. And one just f the worst at that. Since I cannot leave a one star rating, I will leave a five star rating. Please kindly disregard four of the stars. Thank you.
I wanted to like this rack…I REALLY did. It’s built very solidly. That’s the positive. The negative, 1. It’s heavy as heck. Not something you want to take on and off of your vehicle on a regular basis. 2. It’s noisy. Moving the wheel cradles up and down, it squeaks and creaks like mad. 3. Moving the cradles and the support arms is not as easy as it should be. These are very stiff and should move more freely. 4. There is no way that I can see these wheel straps holding a 4.8” tire. They barely fit my 3.8” tires. While these may not seem like major issues to some, I just feel that for $550, These issues should not exist.
I have fat tire bike with 27.5 x 4.5 tires. Unfortunately I need to let air out of the front tire for the hold-down to be able to swing over the tire. Advertised to fit 26"-29" up to 4.8 wide. Should change advertising specs to be accurate. Rack works for my other bikes. Sturdy and easy to use.
I got rear ended by a drunk driver going 60 in a 35 On Oct 31st 2020. Not only did the bike rack impale the drivers radiator put his car to a stop shortly after he ran away, but it also took almost all of the impact. Unfortunately... I'm out of a brand new rack that I just bought and really loved. :( I will continue to buy your product in the future due to their sold and reliable product. THANK YOU Yakima! -KEVIN
I bought a new fat tire bike with 27.5 x 4.5 tires. Disappointed to learn that I need to let some air out of the front tire for the hold-down to be able to swing over the tire. Advertised to fit 26"-29" up to 4.8 wide. Happy with other aspects of the rack.
I haven’t been impressed with the stability it provided my bikes. When not in use the trays move around and hit the back of your vehicle. Yesterday, the plastic tray broke off and the metal bent. After two months of use, I find myself looking for another bike rack. I’ve always gone with Yakima, however I’m now looking elsewhere.
This is a great rack except for a pretty obvious design flaw that has appeared in my rack and my roommate's, so it seems like a common problem. The front wheel cradle rotates down into place and back up to the folded position. It rotates around an axle. On either side of the cradle arms where they meet the axle is a plastic spacer of some kind, which is supposed to stay in place (there are notches to hold it in place) while the cradle rotate freely around it. The plastic spacers actually insert into hoops on the metal cradle arms (see photo). Well, these plastic spacers tend to bind to the metal hoops, meaning that when the cradle is rotated, the plastic spacers rotate with it. They are therefore forced out of the notches that are supposed to hold them from rotating, which causes them to pop outward, and actually the plastic piece on the end of the axle pops off. or in one case it shredded off the notches. I completely disassembled them, lubed them with silicone, but the design is such (plastic inserted into the metal hoops that aren't exactly round) that they still tend to bind. One of the spacers actually got shredded and was ruined, while the other pops off the end. As I said, the exact same thing happens with my roommate's rack. This seems like an easy thing to re-engineer and fix! Yakima customer service is great and they sent me a new rack on warranty but the new one does the same thing. I gave the old one to my daughter and while they still function, it is annoying. We have three Holdup EVOs all doing the same thing!
