Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor ingredients - too much weak plastic I bought this about a month ago. At first I was really excited as I thought it would let me take my bikes wherever. After 3 uses, the plastic teeth started to fail in the sliding arms that hold the bike in place. Now they do not stay in place. In fact, I just got a new bike, and as I start to put it in place at the bike shop, the hook on the vertical arm slides down onto my bike. Somehow, the plastic at the tip (past the soft foam) manages to put two large scratches on the frame my brand new bike! This is not user error, I've asked other folks to see if I'm doing it wrong - I'm not. It is now no longer reliable that it will stay in place, and it has blemished my new bike...and I've only used it three times

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I Need 3 Hands! I am a single woman and wanted something that didn't require my lifting the bike up high to get it on a trunk type rack. I found that this hitch rack is extremely heavy and I struggle to get it inserted into the hitch. I drive a sedan so I don't leave it on the car all the time as you might if you had an SUV. I also found that I need three hands to secure the bike on the rack. One to hold the bike in place, one to pull out the button to raise the arm, and one to actually raise the arm. So, I end up leaning the bike against the car while I manage the other two maneuvers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great for daily use I think this rack would be fine for the weekend warrior. My husband used this daily for several months (he commutes home via bike), and after 4 months, the center hook that secures the bike stopped working. Plastic teeth on metal slots don't hold well. The spring that holds the plastic teeth against the metal slots is woefully weak. Thanks to REI's satisfaction guaranteee, we returned this rack & got a Kuat NV 2-bike rack which is much sturdier!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.5 Stars - Solid tray rack for a reasonable price Good, solid tray rack. I purchased the rack from REI in early June 2015 and it performed well on recent trip to the NC coast (approx. 500 miles with 2 bikes on the rack). I bought this rack to replace a Thule 970XT Helium hanging style rack as it provides faster and easier loading and unloading of bikes. So far I am pleased with the purchase. I would give the rack 5 stars if the tray clamps held the trays in place even when the rack is driven around in the storage position. Pros: * Cost - "sweet spot" for me between low-end, low-feature racks and higher-end racks with options I don't consider necessary. * Ease of use: Bikes go on easily and securely. * Solid build: Rack is well built and good design. Independent arms hold bikes in place via frame (contact points well padded). Trays will hold even the fattest fat bikes (larger straps sold separately – standard straps easily handle normal mountain bikes). * Other: Bikes can be set up with handlebars facing the same direction or opposite directions. Compact design. Fairly light-weight. Hitch lock included. Sliding trays adjust easily to accommodate different size bikes. Hitch can be tilted down (slightly) even with bikes loaded to access trunk, hatch, etc. Cons: * Tray adjustment knobs do not lock down tightly without bikes loaded. The trays will shift around if the rack is driven around in the stored position. (Note – the end stops will not allow the trays to fall off – it just means you have to reposition them when reloading the bikes.) * The rack only tilts down a small amount when loaded. Depending on the width of the handlebars, the hatch may not be able to open fully. * Cable and lock for securing bikes to rack must be purchased separately. * Design does require frame contact (may be a con to some riders). Photo note: I modified the post for the frame arms to wrap the bottom with an old tube. This is expected to prevent damage from pedal strikes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It seems ok I bought the first one the store had and had to return it because the teeth on the locking arms were broken right out of the box. They provided a new rack and it was easy to install and seems to be working fine. The only problem is the bikes are close together. So when we put the bikes on, one of the bikes needs to have the seat lowered so it doesn't get hung up or hit the brake or shifting levers of the other bike.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible quality, broke first use Poorly constructed, especially at cost. Ratchet/lock broke during first use. Tried to order replacement part and Yakima customer service was horrid... Opted to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use We purchased this bike rack two weeks ago. My husband installed the rack but was out of town the first time we needed to use it. I had no problem working my way through the system. It took me maybe 20 minutes to get both bikes on and ready for the road. It will be faster next time now that I know the system. It was a six hour trip and the bikes rode well. No noise, rattling or loose bikes when I reached my destination. I appreciated not having to lift the bikes overhead to get them on the rack. It is a great rack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Nice Rack Yakima makes some top-quality products, and this rack is no different. It attaches reasonably securely to any 1.25" or 2" (wth the included adapter block) trailer hitch and supports 2 bikes weighing up to 60 lbs in total. I say reasonably securely because even with the included hitch pin bolt tightened all the way down, the rack still sways a bit when driving or going over bumps. This is with the adapter block in place for my 2" hitch, so I can't speak for using it with a 1.25". When not in use, the rack folds up to reduce its footprint on the rear of your vehicle, but in practice this has proven useless as it blocks the tailgate or hatch of your vehicle from opening. Just remove it when not in use. The attachment points on the rack hold the 2 bikes tightly. The tire straps use a lever ratchet to hold any size tire, from skinny roadies all the way up to fat bikes, which is nice with their rapidly gaining popularity. It works like the ratchet straps on old roller blades, and is very effective. The bar that hooks over the top tube to stabilize the bike has an easy-to-use ratchet mechanism. There is a loop of metal welded to the frame of the rack for those worried about leaving their bikes on the rack when away from the vehicle. Besides the swaying, the only other issue I have with the rack is that one of the arms holding a wheel cup fell off my vehicle while driving. I had thoroughly tightened all the bolts down when assembling it (they use wingnuts you tighten with your hands), but apparently the lock nuts on them don't hold very well. If you purchase this rack, check frequently that the bolts are tight. Overall, this is a pretty nice rack for the price. Beats the heck out of getting mud or road grime all over the inside of your vehicle after a ride. And best of all it has a bottle opener attached to the end of the rack for an after-ride beverage of your discretion, a must for any serious cyclist.

Does this rack sit far enough away to accommodate the spare tire on a Jeep Wrangler?

Asked by: Alwsabo
We recommend measuring the distance from the center of the mounting hole on your hitch receiver to the end of your spare tire. If the measurement is equal to or less than 7 inches, the rack will not interfere with your spare tire.

Will this rack carry a fat tire and a mountain bike at the same time? We usually carry one of each. Thank you.

Asked by: curlygirl
Yes, the TwoTimer can carry bikes with any size tires (for both bikes). The Yakima Fat Straps are needed for fat tires. These straps can be purchased directly off of the Yakima website.
