Carry kids' bikes, BMXers, mountain bikes, road bikes, bikes of any style or size with this easy to install, easy to load 2-bike hitch mount platform rack. A platform-style rack transports the bikes closer to the ground than any other carrier type, so loading requires the least amount of lifting. And because the bikes are transported on the wheels, a platform-style carrier can carry a wide range of bike styles.
The ProRack comes ready to install in 2" receiver hitches. To install in a 1-1/4" receiver hitch, just remove the adapter. A threaded hitch bolt is included to secure the rack to the receiver hitch, to reduce rattle and sway. The wheel trays slide on the brackets to accommodate just about any wheelbase, and once set, you can just place the wheels in the tray and push down the ratcheting hook against the top frame tube. Each hook is independently adjustable to carry bikes with a wide range of top tube heights at the same time. Fasten the rubber wheel straps tight around the wheels and secure the bikes to the mast with the included safety strap, for added stability.
Unloading the bikes is just as simple: Release the wheel straps, push the button on the hook and raise the hook from the top tube, then remove the bike. If access to the rear of the vehicle is needed the rack can be tilted down, when empty, and it can be folded up behind the vehicle to increase clearance for parking and garaging. The ProRack Hitch Bike Platform comes with comprehensive, illustrated instructions, and it's backed by a limited 3-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.199.00Brand: Yakima Part Number: 8062400 UPC: 736745624002
