The Yakima FrontLoader is Yakima's most versatile rooftop bike mount ever. The Yakima FrontLoader delivers unbelievable hassle-free bicycle loading / unloading and universal mounting convenience on all styles of multi-purpose base roof rack system crossbars. (The Yakima FrontLoader Installs quickly and easily without tools!) Featuring amazing design-style and technical sophistication, the Yakima FrontLoader allows you to leave both wheels on and simply place the entire bicycle on the carrier. Just roll the bike into position and the carrier holds the bike in place allowing you to quickly turn the big red tightening knob. Easy to use, the Front Loader bike rack also features a sliding wheel tray for simple rear wheel positioning that fits a wide range of bike lengths (except tandems and recumbents). This Yakima bike rack grabs onto your wheel and doesn't touch the painted surfaces of your bike, keeping your paint job pristine. The Yakima FrontLoader Bike Rack fits a wide range of bikes; from road tires to 3 inches and fits bikes with wheels from 20" to 29" in diameter. The premium dual-side ratcheting rear wheel strap also included. Yakima designed the FrontLoader’s bike wheel cradle to fold down for maximum aerodynamics when not in use. We highly recommend picking up a set of Yakima SKS Lock Cores (Not included) for added security against no-good bike thieves. The Yakima FrontLoader Is fully compatible with any bikes using disc brakes, thru axles or funky suspension systems and even features a front wheel holder with pre-marked settings for front wheel size. The Yakima FrontLoader is the ultimate bike rack on the planet!
