So many questions.

It's tough to nail down the best thing about the Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack. Is it the fact that it carries the bikes nice and low for easy access and optimal fuel mileage? Is it the fact that it folds up and out of the way it's not in use? Is it the fact that it easily accommodates just about any style and size of bike? Is it the fact that you don't have to take any parts off of your bike to load it up? Is it the fact that no part of the rack touches a painted surface on your bike? All of these facts together make a very, very nice bike rack. We won't choose–that's up to you to decide.

  • Fits just about any style bike (no tandems or recumbents) from 20-inch to 29-inch wheels
  • Carries 2 bikes as-is or 4 bikes with optional 2-bike add-on
  • Spring loaded pin makes it easy to tilt the rack out of the way for rear access
  • Includes 6-foot SKS security cable
  • Integrated bottle opener for post-ride hydration
  • Supplied with locks to safely leave your bike for a coffee or post ride beverage

Yakima HOLDUP Install

Posted on

The HoldUp is Yakima's fastest, easiest way to load bikes. Its beefed-up arm pivot makes it stronger than ever and the side-to-side adjustability reduces the chance for bike-to-bike interference. It's a road trip companion for life.

+ 2 Yakima Rack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Review for the +2 extension. Very easy to install and remove for the base Yakima rack. The rack is a beast with the +2 installed. Heavy and cumbersome. That said, it's very sturdy and does what it's supposed to do, hold two additional bikes. I leave the base Yakima Holdup (2 bikes only) on my SUV all the time. I install/remove the extension on an as needed basis.

Does anyone know if this will fill on a Wrangler with the spare tire and still be able to open the back door?

You would likely need a drop hitch with some amount of extension. I have the Kuat NV rack (similar design different brand) and 35" tires and 3" lift. I found a 4" drop and 12" extension is just right. I am able to open the tailgate without tilting it down

Worth the wait!

When I finally decided it was time to get a rack I asked around and felt the Holdup was right for me. I also just missed the last one on this website. Apparently they move fast when their in stock. I waited another month until the next shipment came. I couldn't be happier with it. It's tough and is easy to load. My six year old can get his bike in it almost completely by himself. I would've waited twice as long for such a great product.

Yakima Bike Rack

Best Rack I?ve found on the market. Really easy to attach to a hitch, can fold back when no bikes are on the rack. An extension can be bought and attached to the initial bike rack so 4 bikes can be transported.

Don?t hesitate buying it, although a little too expensive.
