Take the hassle out of your hustle the next time you're packing for a group ride or family day on the trails. With the Yakima FrontLoader universal roof bike rack, loading and unloading bikes is a cinch. Just lift the bike onto the tray and secure with one hand using the oversized adjustment knob - and if you use this carrier with the same bike, you can set it just once and never need to adjust it again. The Yakima FrontLoader upright bike tray mounts tool-free to virtually any style of cross bar, including factory racks, and can also be used with virtually any style of bike. The sliding rear wheel tray creates a precise fit with your bicycle, and the dual-sided ratchet strap means securing the back wheel is snug and simple from either side of the car. A Yakima SKS 2-pack of locks (not included) will lock the bike to the rack with the integrated cable lock and also lock the rack onto the cross bars.
  • Mounts directly to factory, round, or square cross bars—no tools required

Versatile bike rack
May 12, 2016
Well made rack and very versatile. Holds at least 26"-29" bikes using a simple sliding piece with easy to use lock tabs for each wheel size. Has a nice spot to put a yakima SKS lock core to lock the rack to the cross bar. Also fits round or square bars. It is a little on the heavy side and lifting the bike into position is a little tricky at first but becomes automatic soon enough.

Easy to use rack
December 11, 2015
I mounted this rack in my Honda Odyssey minivan with Thule crossbars. If you are using the OEM crossbars you may have clearance issues because those bars are close to the roof of the vehicle. Installing the Yakima Frontloader was truly tool less. Literally take out of box, adjust for your wheel size and mount on your crossbars. I didn't time it but it probably took less than three minutes to have it up and ready to use. The hardest part which is no fault of the rack is the fact that I mounted it on a minivan and it was not easy to get my bike up there. I had to use a step stool and will have to carry one around when using this rack.
