The HoldUp helps bike bandits make a speedy getaway.

Fast and easy—not compliments if you're a lady, but ideal when you're referring to the Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack. This platform-style rack fits into standard two-inch (2”) hitch receivers, and secures two bikes using Yakima's patented, ratcheting StrongArm bars. The StrongArm system is favored by everyone from downhillers to road bikers for its speed (about ten seconds per bike) strength, and frame-friendly over-the-wheel grip. The HoldUp is fully adjustable to accommodate all bike sizes, folds up when not in use, and even has a bottle opener built in for post-ride refreshments. Need more space? Attach the Plus 2 Add On Kit (not included) and double your bike-hauling capacity.

BAM!!! The good news is MY bike is still on the rack.....

"BAM!! Oh crap!... The good news honey is MY bike is still on the rack!"......

Yep, that's what I had to tell my wife after we hit a mondo pothole in our truck and her bike flew off the cheapie rack I bought... No lovin' for me that night.

We travel a lot of dirt roads to get to our riding areas here is SW Utah and this Yakima rack has performed flawlessly. Yes, it's a lot of coin at nearly $400 bucks but it is super easy to use, protects the frames from scratches and two bikes take less than ninty seconds to load/unload.

Only negative is that it is little heavy to install/remove from the hitch.

can you lock the bikes to the rack?

You can use Yakima SKS lock cores on this rack to keep them from getting keifed. Alternately, you could creatively run a longggg cable through the bikes and down through the hitch's chain mounts to keep things secure.If you're planning on adding other Yakima racks, buy more cores so they all have the same key. It makes life so much nicer.http://www.backcountry.com/store/YAK0017/Yakima-SKS-Lock-Cores-2-pack.html
