The advertisement says fits up to 3 1/2" tires, not even close, maybe a 2" max. My Aventon's do not fit and I am looking for other solutions since this would scare me to take on a long trip. Also the center bar is way off to the left, does not allow for 2 bikes front to front, back to back, or back to front. If the bar had another set of holes so it could be at an angle of 22.5 degrees, you could then get the bikes secured back to front. The ramp is an absolute joke and with it being not wide enough, you have to load these by hand. Wish there was a rack with hydraulic lift so you could roll them on and then up it would go, but for now I need to look to another solution. Yakima has clearly missed the boat this time and is way behind the loop on how to build an e-bike rack.
Sturdy, well made rack. Comes almost completely assembled, easy to use.
I bought it for my 2 Ride1Up cafe cruisers, and despite what the website says, this rack is not suitable for all e-bikes. I’m confident the rack is strong enough, that’s not the point.
It says the rack will hold tires up to 3.25”. Wrong. Here is a picture of my 3” tires, you can see they don’t sit all the way down. It comes with a ramp. Nice idea, but it’s as strong as a wet noodle. As someone else noted, the center support bar is not where it shows in the picture, it’s very far to the left. I'm sure that works for some bikes, but not for mine.
Overall I don’t recommend this rack, there are too many aggravating issues for the price. It makes me wonder if the person who designed it has ever actually loaded a bike on it.
love the ramp, but the trays are too narrow for 2.5 in tires. need two people to load as bike will slide out during the tie down process. There needs to be tire blocks to prevent bike rolling off while tying it down. The vertical holder will not wrap around many ebikes as this is the placement of battery.
I have a Trek Allant 7S. Very hard to load because the ramp and the trays aren't really wide enough. Should let buyer know that doesnt work well with fatter tires. Would be nice if I could buy trays that would fit that are wider.
Sturdy well made bike rack. We use it for our e-bikes. Wish the ramps were wider has the tires do not fit in correctly. Also would have been nice to get the fat tire straps with the rack as of the back order. I’ve been using a ratchet strap to secure the bikes. Fat straps have been ordered. Also use a hitch extender for the Jeep to clear the rear tire.
The rack is perfect for my Trek Verve + 2 E bike. No more lifting because of the ramp. Its been working great for our local trips around town. Just took our first road trip and I was confident the whole time that my wife's regular bike and my E bike were secure. Again I have had no problems with this rack.
Before loading the bikes, move the center stand up bar all the way down to the left. Load the first bike on the track nearest the tailgate. Move the center stand up bar back up to vertical. Secure first bike. After it is secured load second bike. Use this loading sequence, otherwise loading the first bike is a pain getting it around the stand up bar. To unload reverse the sequence.
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.
