Yakima Sprocket Rocket
These racks are the benchmark of bicycle roof racks. Nothing compares! The choice of the RealCyclist.com Pro Team
Well worth the money..!!
I spend the last couple days outfitting two vans with Yakima racks. These racks are a snap to install and set up..!! No tools are needed (except for a wrench that is included) and the instructions make it simple, even if you have never installed a bike rack system before. They have plenty of adjustment to fit almost any style bike (haven't figured out a way to secure a tandem yet), and once locked into place your bike is rock solid. A great product that is well worth the price tag..
Yakima Sproket Rocket.
Had this sprocket rocket bike mount along with two high rollers. Excellent bike mount for both my mountain and road bike. Hilds bike securely with style. I was enjoyin it for 6 months until someone stole the whole roof rack assembly off my Acura Rsx. Only thing missing from this great Yakima product is a serial number.
What are the advantages of using a fork...
What are the advantages of using a fork mount carrier?
Minimize wind noise and aerodynamics improving gas mileage. Also the bike woobles a lot less using fork mount. The wheel mounted carriers can be hard on wheels and spokes. I would never use a carbon front wheel on a wheel mounted carrier. I think they are more secure also.
Best fork mount around
Yes its pricey but it has lots small features that make it worth the money. The rear attachment point slides very easily on the rack unlike some of the other yakima products. The release on the ratchet has never gummed up or gotten stuck like the ones on cheaper models either. The rack is also very sturdy it has zero twist to it. This rack has held my kona dawg and bianchi veloce secure at high speeds up to 80 mph. I have never once feared my back coming off while using this rack.
Awesome bike trays!
i ended up buying these trays after going back and forth because of the price. the truth is these trays are extremely durable, has the easiest lockdown system, very secure, and won't torque your bikes when driving down a rough road. it's worth the extra money to buy these. not a bike that wouldn't fit on these, my cruiser bike is no problem. i see these trays lasting me a long, long time.
If it worked for me it will for you.
I wasn't planning on writing a review for this but a couple of days ago I was driving away from the Backcountry warehouse with some sick new gear on my way up to do some mountain biking when I forgot I had my bike on the rack. I drifted onto the interstate and then realized oh sh#$t. The rack held it on like a champ. Also great for disk brake bikes. Easy on easy off. This is the best rack functionally and looks wise.
Nice rack nice price
Except for how expensive it is this rack is probably the best. Looks good and holds mountain bikes with and without disk breaks.
Best Rack Around
I've been hauling my bikes around on scads of different racks, and the SproketRocket has been the best by far. My bikes don't sway on this rack, even while hauling down the interstate at 80 mph. The adjustable cams allow for quick fitting and uber-easy loading and unloading, and a monkey could figure out how to install it. The lock cores are super easy to use, and keep creeps from swiping your steed. If you're questioning whether to buy this or go for a cheaper rack, compare a Camelbak vs. a hydration pack from Walmart. You won't be sorry you got this rack.
