- Q & A
Gets the job done.
Gets the job done when you dont want to commit to a thru-axle only mount...
Works with older style
I bought this (with my fingers crossed) to work with my original style Boa system. It worked fine, the quick release had to be screwed all the way in but it held just fine. All the picks show this item with the newer rack systems, don't worry, it works.
**side note: Fork Up is the actual manufacturer, and when I looked they were charging more for the item and for the shipping, buying direct wasn't worth it.
Hit and Miss
Hit: Solid construction, all steel, nice deep double sided welds, decent paint, clean inner seam. Good axle fit and proper hieght from skewer....even fits my Fox 40 with low hanging Hopoe Mono 6 brake caliper. Miss: design flaw in that the mount point for the Adapter imitates a quick release style fork that is pinched in place by the skewer....this means the bike could pop loose off-roading or be jarred/hammered loose by a thief....if they had (instead) been through holes, it would have only taken an extra 20-40 seconds to mount the adapter by unscrewing the skewer and feeding it through, yet it would have been impossible for the adapter to come loose. Overall, does the job well enough.....and since it's mild steel, it was easy to weld to/modify. Should cost no more than $12-$15 though...and isn't even made by Yakima....made by Fork Up...check out their site and buy direct.
Will this work on my Thule Lowrider bike...
Will this work on my Thule Lowrider bike rack?
Yes, this clamps in the Low Rider just as a standard fork would.
