The Yakima SteelHead Bike Rack's long throw locking skewer and tool free installation make it the most popular fork mount rack around. The design of the locking skewer is such that it can not be fully unscrewed when in the locked position. As long as it is in place, the skewer prevents the "clam shell" from opening. The Steel Head will safely fit bar spreads from 16" to 42", however spreads of 16" to 18" are limited to two bikes. The Steel Head carries just about any bike with a quick release wheel skewer. However, there are a few exceptions where one of our other mounts should be used instead. These exceptions include, but are not limited to, bikes with triple clamp forks, forks with dropout spacing (the distance between the forks at the tips) other than 100mm, bikes with front disc brakes, or forks where the dropouts are above and forward of a suspension linkage.
