Hold Up and get a move on.

One way to bring your bike everywhere you go is to ride it. That's cool, until you need to get somewhere really far away, in which case sticking your ride onto the Yakima Hold-Up Bike Rack is probably the better way to go. This bomber rack secures easily to a 1.25in hitch receiver and uses StrongArm ratcheting arms and solid ratchet straps to lock down your front and rear wheel, respectively, while a spring-loaded pin lets you fold the rack up when it's not in use or tilt it backward for easy hatch access. It will hold bikes with wheel diameters between 20in and 29in, and comes with an SKS security cable and lock cores to lock your bikes to the rack. There's even an integrated bottle opener so you can enjoy some refreshment after a hot and dusty ride.

  • Two-bike capacity
  • StrongArm ratcheting arms and rear-wheel ratchet straps
  • Tiltable and foldable
  • SKS security cable and lock cores included
  • Integrated bottle opener

Not quite right for the job

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Having lost a bike off my vehicle's roof, I switched to the hitch mounted rack. At first, the thing worked as intended. After 6 months of use, it was evident that this thing wasn't made to last.

First, the lock pin that locks the rack in position was cheaply made. The ball bearing that secures the pin in place fell out after a few short months. The plastic pin that is connected via a wire to the locking pin to make sure the pin stays on the rack is useless as well.

Second, the arm that I use most frequent started to break down. Instead of moving smoothly, it started to grind and awkwardly click into place... You would often smack the bar arm against your fork in the process. After cleaning, tightening, and problem solving nothing seemed to work.

Bottom line, it will hold your bikes up. However, at the rate the thing started deteriorating I would suggest Thule or Kuat.

Will this have an adapter to go up to 2 inch? I have one car that uses 1.25 and a truck that uses a 2 inch. I would like to use this on both autos.
