The Yakima FrontLoader Bike Rack provides a universal fit to most kinds of crossbars, including aerodynamic factory bars. This makes the FrontLoader Yakima's most versatile rooftop bike mount ever. It goes right from the box onto your car rack system, and then to a very special place in your heart. One easy-to-reach knob controls retention, adjustment and release. Super securely locks your bike to the bike mount, and the bike mount to your car rack system (2 SKS Lock Cores sold separately).

This is our first roof carrier and I did a LOT of research. The fact that it mounts to most any roof rack cross bar was huge, who has the time to be worried about having some special cross bar system!! The rack itself never touches the frame, and you never have to take your front wheel off to lock your forks on to the rack. Your frame does not get scratched, your cables to not get pulled and tugged on, and if you are even are an occasional rider with less expensive bikes you know how frustrating that can be. Both road bikes and mountina bikes fit secure in the trays the rack grabs the front wheel and the straps that gove over the rims give you three points that the bike is secured on to. Can not go wrong with this rack.
Very sturdy rack. Easy to install and adjust. Received it quickly from Austin Canoe & Kayak.
