The Yakima SpareTime bike carrier mounts right to your spare tire and carries 2 bikes—never leave your spare tire at home again.

    • Bikes can be centered on vehicle by offsetting the support arms
    • Cradle arms quickly fold down when rack is not in use
    • Universal mounting plate with extensions fits most lug patterns; mounting knob is SKS-lockable (lock cores sold separately)

    • Weight is 27.7 lbs.
