    Details

    Your ticket to multi-bike adventures.

    Bring friends and family along to local trailheads and epic riding spots with the Yakima King Joe 3 Bike Rack. Integrated StableCradles secure road, cruiser, and most mountain bikes, provided there's sufficient clearance with rear-suspension mountain bikes. And for bikes with sloping or funky-shaped top tubes, Yakima offers a separate TubeTop attachment, handily securing sloping cruiser and slanted road bike frames.

    The rack's 90-pound capacity allows you to attach three of your favorite bikes, provided they're 30-pounds or less each. The QuickTrigger Hub system and folding arms easily attach to most cars, hatchbacks, minivans, and SUVs. Glass hatch hooks are included for stabilizing with hatchbacks. Moreover, tri-padded feet and coated metal buckles won't scratch the paint on your vehicle.

    Speedy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a sweet bike rack, I really how easy it is to adjust and install and its totally out of the way when you do not need it. It fits almost any hatchback out there, it even fits my '78 Volkswagon bus! holds the bikes pretty secure, and its easy to get a bike lock and lock them all up to the car.

    I like that its so easy to take on and off, if you are leaving your car overnight somewhere you can pop it off in 10 seconds and leave it at home, or stow it inside so it does not get stolen.



    It holds the bikes pretty secure, you just have to be careful when you only have one or two bikes on there, if you accelerate too quickly they will swing out then hit your car, its not really enough to damage it, but its annoying, you really have to punch it for this to happen though.



    I keep pretty good track of my gas mileage and have taken this on some long trips and have not seen any reduction in gas mileage, which you cannot say the same for a roof mounted bike rack. this one is also way easier to get the bikes on and off.



    I am trying to think of any negatives, the only thing coming to mind is that I can no longer use my rear window wiper. which is not a big deal.



    this is a great rack, quality parts and well built, I expect to use this rack for years and years

    Love It!

      Bought this for my 2005 Malibu Maxx hatchback. Holds 3 bikes just like it says! You will need an adapter bar for women's bikes though, so pick one up!



      Once the initial setup is done, taking off and putting back on is extremely easy.

      Good Shit

        Great rack for smaller cars, if you have the ability to fit more then three comfortably, then i recommend waiting for the King 4 to be on sale, which Backcountry usually runs a sick deal at 85 dollars. It has six straps that attach to trunk, so far it has not left any damage to edges. Fits hardtails best, but will work with rear suspension.

        pretty much for hardtails only

          Works great with hardtails or any full suspension with enough clearance to hang correctly. My newest full-suspension hangs badly and sways a lot at higher speeds. Wouldn't trust this rack with any bike that utilizes a rear shock right under the top tube, as many dw-link suspensions do. If you're a hardtail rider you're good to go, as the rack mounts easily, is incredibly stiff, and really does hold 3 bikes.

          Best in its class

            This rack is very good. It is far superior to another brand I bought and couldn't use. The difference is that this rack has superior build quality with superior materials, and it holds the bikes out from behind the car far enough that the bikes don't hit up against the rear of the car, scratching it as the other rack did. Highly recommended for a trunk-mount type of rack.

            Pay attention to every setup!

              The rack secures itself very well to my 2006 Civic, however, the adjustable shoes for the bike frame slide when driving. My bike, which was firmly mounted before a 350 mile trip slid about 5 inches on one side backwards, tipping the front wheel into my muffler and melting a brand new $55 tire & tube. I intend to fix the rack with a pipe clamp, but will never again trust the front wheel on the inside most bike.

              Conditions will be different for different cars-I got the rack because it seemed to have the softest pads on the car side (a Saris model made a mess of my trunk lid). The 4 straps on this model are easier than 6 individual straps (both for 6 hooks) and it installs in about 2 minutes. I am not a huge fan of the locking mechanism as it is the only cheap feeling part of the rack-it is sometimes hard to align the lock in place.

              I purchased it at $124, it was worth it at that price.

              Not the burliest...

                The description above isn't 100% accurate. Don't get me wrong, this is a decent rack, but for only a little more money, you really should get the Quick-back 2 or 3. It is a much more versatile, stable, and convenient rack. It fits almost any vehicle and is the latest from Yakima. It keeps bikes further from your vehicle which eliminates damage especially from pedals hitting your car.

                Yakima King Joe 3

                  The King Joe 3 lives up to its name. It was one of the few racks that would fit over a spoiler and I can use it on my wifes mini-van. Very easy to install (10-15 minutes.) May be a little small to hold 3 large bikes but works quite well for two.

                  This is what racks should be like!

                    I am somewhat dingy when it comes to technical stuff, I was hoping for a rack that was easy to install, easy to put the bikes on, and easy to switch from one car to the other. This rack is so perfect! I can do it all by myself and head for the hills, girl power!
