I have an Aventon Level commuter bike. 62 lbs and commuter, not fat tires. After a few attempts of rolling the bike up the ramp I gave up and just picked it up, old school. The rack barely accommodated the tire width. The rack would not stay in place caused the back wheel to slide off. It might be because the rack points upward just a little, not sure why, my hitch receiver is level, I don't get it.
I agree with Big Bad Dad's comments. The left mounted stabilizer makes it a serious hassle to secure bikes in opposing directions and makes it really hard to secure our step throughs. A sliding stabilizer is the answer. AND the photo on the website showing the stabilizer centered on the rack frame is a SERIOUS misrepresentation of the product. An accessory suggestion: Yakima could offer fat tire trays that can accommodate 4" tires that attach to the metal trays using the same screw holes as the stock trays. With these changes Yakima could have a true winner. 5 stars for being able to carry two 60lb bikes. 2 stars for the stabilizer location misrepresentation.
Pros: It was easy to install, it accommodated my heavy and bulky beach cruisers with fenders, the ramp makes it easy to place the heavy big bikes by myself without help, and it's easy to drop when loading things in the back of the suv.
Cons: One of the straps broke after one use and the screw that holds the second bolt also broke off. They seem easy to replace but for the cost of the rack, it was frustrating that everything didn't hold up longer.
Be warned that there is one photo on the Yakima page that is VERY misleading. It appears below and shows the center support pole centered in the rack. But in reality it isn't - it is welded to the very left of the rack. This makes it very difficult to load bikes with the handlebars opposite each other as there isn't enough room to load a bike with the handlebars to the left of the rack. Too bad - if Yakima either welded it in the center position, or better yet, made it adjustable so you could slide it to whichever position works best for your bikes, it would be a true five-star product. The second change would be to the cable lock - you need to use the key to lock it which requires crawling under your vehicle to reach it when the rack is mounted and loaded. If, like Thule, the lock was spring loaded and could be "snapped on" it would be better, though you would still have to crawl under to unlock it. But overall it works great and we like it.
Bought this rack to haul two e-bikes. It is solid and rated for even more weight than the two bikes weigh. The bikes ride solidly and with little movement. The ramp works well too. Very happy!
We needed a substantial rack that could carry two, 50lb. E-bikes to the trails in the mountains. We are super pleased with this Yakima bike rack. It gives us peace of mind knowing that our bikes are safely being hauled. And, my wife is very pleased she doesn’t even have to help. One person can easily roll the bike up onto the rack and easily secure it. Thank you, Yakima!
We were pleasantly surprised by the Yakima rack. It's cheaper than the competition, while the quality seems excellent, so the price point is very much appreciated. It was easy to put together. It took us about an hour and half to set it up and adjust it to our specific bikes. I am not the strongest, but I was able to lift it up, so it's not too heavy. The on-ramp is also simple to use and stow away. It feels sturdy, yet it's not heavy to move around. I don't think it would fit fat tire bikes though without the additional kit.
We have two heavy e-bikes, and one of them is pretty long (just at the limit of the 50" wheelbase, which is really the maximum length it could carry--see photo), but they both sit well on the rack. Also, the clamps that hold the bikes are very flexible in all directions, so it was easy to secure our low-step bikes. Our first trip was about 1.5 hours one-way on the highway, and everything was still well-secured at the end of our trip. Definitely happy with the purchase!
So we finally made the plunge and replaced our hybrid 21 speed bikes with Ebikes. But then we discovered that they exceeded the weight rating of our trusty Thule DoubleTrack rack that we loved. So after reviewing all options we opted for the Yakima OnRamp and love it. As we hefted our Ebikes onto our old rack I remarked to my wife that someone should make a rack with some sort of roll-on ramp device and lo an behold Yakima does and it works better than our old Thule in many ways. The "tree" as I call it folds down wonderfully and the Yakima "jaws" to clamp onto the frame of the bike works really well. At first I thought, Yakima didn't include ratcheting clamps for the wheels like Thule does, but after using it a few times, the Yakima wheel straps are way better - easier to put on and take off and they swing out of the way for loading and unloading. The ramp is great and works from both sides and for us, we just throw it into the back of our crew cab pickup for quick trips. But, and you knew there had to be a but, there is one thing I would change. The "tree" is welded onto the frame on the driver's side of the rack. So for our Ebikes, which are step-through, we've found the best way to load is to have the bikes both facing towards the passenger side of the car - this way the jaw clamps on the tree can grab onto the main frame member that holds the seatpost. But this means we have to load it awkwardly. Naturally, I want to grab my bike from the left side of it - the kickstand side. But to do that and then roll them up the OnRamp means I'm on the wrong side of the bike. I would suggest to Yakima that they allow the tree to slide the way the wheel tracks do so I could have the tree on the passenger side - this would work so much better for my Ebikes and would allow folks to mount the tree at either side. At the very least Yakima could weld it on in the center of the rack. Overall though we think its great - solid as a rock, the roll-on ramp is just the ticket, and the bikes are secure. And unlike our old Thule, this Yakima rack even tips away from the car so you can open the hatch or the tailgate. Price is good too considering competing roll on racks that can hold two 50+ pound Ebikes can cost around $800. Well done Yakima!
