Yakima HoldUp Bike Hitch Rackis rated4.5out of5by4.
Rated5out of5byfromLove it!I wanted a bike rack that would carry multiple styles and sizes of bikes and would still allow me to open the rear hatch of my car. This did that, and I decided on this one because the parts that hold the bike in place do not touch the frame, so when I get a good bike with a light frame, it will not get damaged. I love how easy it is to get the bikes on and off the rack and that it came with a lock to prevent theft. Would definitely recommend.

Rated5out of5byfromAbsolutely LOVE this rack!!We picked this up after adding a hitch to my Highlander so that we could take our bikes camping with us. Install is a breeze, bikes go on and off with ease, and the built-in security features ensure that your bikes are safe while traveling.

Rated5out of5byfromExcellent productVery easy to load and unload. Seems to hold bikes securely. I have a 2" hitch and it seems to be stable, even on dirt roads, although I have not done any really rugged roads yet. It drops down a little below horizontal, but I still have to loosen the bike closest to my hatch to make enough room to get the hatch open. I don't have to completely remove the bike, just loosen it enough to get that extra inch. (I have a Forester). I knew that would be an issue though, so I have no complaints. It is solid and I plan on getting the attachment to carry 4 bikes.

Rated3out of5byfromWorks for meThis review is for the 2" HoldUp. Having used the rack for a month I agree with most of the advantages and disadvantages mentioned in the reviews here. It is expensive and based on the number of failures reported I expect something will break sometime. It is fast and easy to load and will accomodate my Townie. Since I take it on and off frequently I found a nice wrench to use: GearWrench 15/16" reversible combination ratcheting wrench Overall, there are not many choices for this type for rack and I am pretty happy with it.
