Product Description

Product Description

Easily carry up to two bikes whether driving across the country or simply heading to the trail with the Yakima Holdup two-bike hitch-mount rack. The Holdup is equipped with premium StrongArm technology, which not only protects your bikes but also makes it possible to load each one in 10 seconds or less. No more fussing with the bike rack for several minutes while the family waits impatiently in the car. In addition, the Holdup folds up when not in use thanks to the premium pin release, which also folds down to give you access to the rear of the vehicle. Finally, the Holdup's adjustable rear straps let you carry bikes of any size, type, design, color, creed, or flavor right out of the box. Other details include best-in-class wheel straps, a LockDown security cable, a RocSteady hitch tongue for greater stability, and an integrated bottle opener. Designed to fit 2-inch hitch receivers, the Holdup carries a limited lifetime warranty. Fast and easynot compliments if you're a lady, but ideal when you're referring to the Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack. This platform-style rack fits into standard two-inch (2) hitch receivers, and secures two bikes using Yakima's patented, ratcheting StrongArm bars. The StrongArm system is favored by everyone from downhillers to road bikers for its speed (about ten seconds per bike) strength, and frame-friendly over-the-wheel grip. The HoldUp is fully adjustable to accommodate all bike sizes, folds up when not in use, and even has a bottle opener built in for post-ride refreshments. Need more space? Attach the Plus 2 Add On Kit (not included) and double your bike-hauling capacity.

The Yakima Hold-Up 2 is considerably heavy, 60 lb., giving it a beefy reputation. Though it has a few design flaws that make the owner of expensive mountain bikes (me) go hmmmm....

First it's easy to assemble and mount to your truck. It's even easier to mount bikes on taking little to no time at all.

The Design Flaws:
1.)Plastic components on criticle pieces, one being the ratcheting devices on the wheels to hold the bike down should've been made of metal and the strap that feeds it should be high tension rubber, not plastic as the ratchet can slip on the teeth freeing the tension on the bike.

2.) The 'strong arm' that holds the bike down on the front wheel can come loose. It too has very shallow teeth in which to grab (stamped into metal)again using plastic on metal.

3.) The MOST critical piece that did in fact fail more than the above metioned flaws is the pin that keeps the bike rack level. It only goes in just over a quarter of an inch. As the bike travels any bump frees the pin, it catches when it comes down and essentially ratchets itself free causing the rack to drop. It doesn't drop to the ground thank goodness but why even have it drop any? It should bottom out when level and a pin should go all the way through with a cotter pin of sorts to keep it in place. There is a hole on the other side, so I drilled the pin side out and put an eight grade bolt with locking nut on the other side.

4.) The two bolts that hold each platform are put in upside down, along with the bracket,,..wtf? It should mount on top. Another thing is that in about two minutes you can unscrew these with a wrench and take the bikes along with half your rack. Not a good anti-theft system.

The rack is super easy to put bikes on and off of. Unfortunately, the rack rattles like crazy when driving down the road without bikes (folded up).

Also, after about one year of use (not on car during winter) the rack is rusting at many spots, especially around welds, making it look like crap.

I purchased this rack about 2 months ago and I am very happy with it. Mounting my bikes on it is very easy and quick. Bikes are held tight and secure. Removing the bikes is also fast and easy.

The reason why I held from giving this rack 5 stars is because when folded up it covers the license plate from view. I was stopped by the police once and given a warning so now my rack is always in the extended position even when no bikes are on it.

Other than that the rack is awesome.

This is a great bike rack. I can load my bike in a matter of seconds. Plenty of room to still get into the trunk of my Civic and it easily folds upright when not carrying bikes. This rack is especially good for hauling carbon-frame bikes where you don't want to put pressure on a single point of the bike frame. Because it loads into a hitch receiver, there are no tie-down straps or rigging to mess with. The only shortcoming that I noticed was that the lock cable was a few inches short of being able to thread through two bicycles no matter how creative I got with how I threaded it through the frames/wheels. I bought a separate, longer cable and lock to deal with this situation. Your results may vary. To avoid having to buy a hitch receiver adapter, make sure that you buy the model that matches the size of your hitch. Overall, very pleased with this rack.

Fantastic easy to use product that makes loading your bike so simple and quick. Either my wife or I can load our bikes and be ready to go in under 30 seconds. Super stable when driving even at higher speeds. The only thing to be aware of is the weight of this item will make it difficult to put on and off.

I love how easy it is to load my bikes and the way it is to fold it back up when not in use. The locking cable system is extremely innovative and ease of use is awesome. The only disappointment was the need to get an extension for my Jeep to get a proper fit and it is heavier than I would have expected. But the quality of this product makes up for that. Well worth the extra money compared to others available.

This is a great rack for your car, suv etc. I love the easy mounting of the bikes, and it does drop down so you can open the lift on an suv. I have used Yakima products for years, I have a roof top rack that is easily 25 years old and still functioning with all original hardware. I have used it on many vehicles with just purchasing the correct pads for the vehicle. A VW Beetle, A Dodge Caravan, A Jeep Patriot, and a Ford Escape. Same rack, new pads for each vehicle but still functions. Purchased the rear rack to increase my bike carrying capacity and also because at 64 the roof rack is too high for mountain bikes that are rather heavy. Great Rack

I use this rack all the time. It is very simple and quick to take the bikes on and off - i would recommend to anyone. A few negatives they could work on the next model:
- it would be nice to have a lockable quick-release to either take off or change to another car. Right now you have to get a wrench out and undo the bolt to take it off.
- there is some play in the receiver and therefore there is a "wobble" to it. Nothing that will hurt it or the bikes, but can be a little noisy.
