    If you're the kind of person who follows the formula n+1 for bikes, then this is the roof rack for you! From dirt jumper to fixie commuter to enduro full suspension, this rack can haul them all safely!

    We own 5 Frontloaders. They're on our teardrop trailer, Outback and my daughter's Outback. Love that the Frontloader holds the bike in place by the tire, securely!! We've driven from Montana to Michigan, Colorado, Moab, Idaho with our bikes on top.

    I actually own 2 of these. One is about 5.5 years old. It is rusting apart (every time I use it, it leaves rust flakes on the roof of my car). I actually took it off my car, for fear of the rack failing. I live down south, no salt on the roads. It has lasted a few years, but I feel with better ...read more

    Way easy to put on and off. Like way easy. So fast. I went and bought another. Now thinking about switching out all my kayak J-hooks for Yakima.

    Would be even better if there was some kind of flag that reached out in front of the windshield so you remembered there's a bike up ther...read more

    Great OOBIE...great out-of-box install experience. No tools required. Measured the bikes wheelbase, positioned the square cross-bars that far apart, placed the Frontloader on passenger's side with rear attaching location over the back crossbar, and the front attaching location positioned over the ...read more

    I've had the privilege (or curse as some might say) of being in the bike industry for well over a decade now. I bought one of these carriers when they first replaced the king cobra. I then bought a second. I honestly can't say which one I'm on now, but I've bought a LOT of them. I use them for a yea...read more

    Overall this is a great rack: out of the box easy to install, easy to use, holds all bikes sizes tightly and secure, locking cable good for security. However, when the big red screw handle strips its threads you have to throw the entire unit away! Apparently there is no way to fix it. ??? Seems to m...read more
