    Stress-free convenience.

    Making the Friday afternoon pilgrimage to the trails is usually filled with a little more stress than you hope for, but it doesn't have to come from packing your bikes. Deal with the forgotten firewood or missing tent stake after you've racked the dream machines headache-free onto Yakima's FourTimer Hitch Rack. Whether you're traveling with a crew or just your bestie, the FourTimer's outer arm gives you the option to use it as a two- or four-bike rack. Padded arms protect your bump-devouring babies from chips and scratches, while the positioning of the straps and cradles ensures they don't bump against one another in-transit. The system includes its own lock, Yakima's versatile one-key locking system, and it folds down for quick access to the cooler in your trunk post-ride — use the integrated bottle opener to pop open a cold one and toast to a day well spent.

    Awesome Rack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After reading tons of reviews and doing research on the best bike racks I thought I was going to be disappointed by getting what may be considered a budget rack. However, the fourtimer is super solid construction and high quality. It comes with a hitch lock which is a big plus. Many of the other brands don't, or the ones that do cost twice as much. It take one bolt to convert from four to two, or two to four bikes so it is easy to downsize the rack if you don't need all four slots all of the time. There is a bit of play where the hitch mounted part of the rack connects to the hinging part of the rack, whereas other higher prices options have a more stable overall feel, but I am ok with it. It is minimal and I don't anticipate it being a problem. Out of the box it took about 15 minutes to install: putting in the hitch, putting on the hitch lock, connecting the first two bike holders , then connecting the other two bike holders. There are a total of five bolts required for the install and is totally doable with one person. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this to someone who doesn't want to spend $1K on a bike rack.

    poor quality

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    i bought the 4 timer, although i detached the extension piece and had it set up as a 2 timer for most days.
    after some light use (couple of times a week for about a year), plastic strap attachment on the wheels trays have broken off on 3 of the total 8 trays . to make the matter worse, it is designed so that the plastic strap is not held down by a screw, but is molded into the plastic carrier. in essence, i would have to purchase 3 replacement wheel trays. this is supposed to be designed for robust use, but that is not the case at all.
    it is also very difficult to adjust the wheel trays; they are often stuck, and brute force to move them are sometimes necessary.
    all in all, i would not purchase this again.

    High Quality Rack

    Solid mount. Easy to get bikes on and off. Holds bikes securely. Nice to remove two mounts when only carrying one or two bikes. It would be nice if it came with a cable lock. Great value.

    Great hitch rack for all bikes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wish there were more options like this. Trays are a must and having the mast grab the frame instead of the wheel allows for use with fendered bikes (in Seattle that is any bike that gets ridden regularly). Works with road bike with fenders, full sus trail bike, anything. Secure enough and pretty easy to set up. Doesn't have cable lock for the bikes, but that is a pretty easy add, and it has a loop to facilitate. Also easy to set up just for two bike (which allows my rear hatch to be fully functional - when set for 4 there is some interference when opening hatch)

    Great rack value and super fast free shipping (and no tax) makes for a great deal.

    Does its job

    This is not as beautiful as an NV, but I needed something to fit 4 bikes and didn't require me to sell some organs on the black market. For that I'm happy with this Yakima Rack.
