Why We Like The DrTray Bike Rack

The ultimate bike tray for your hitch, the Yakima DrTray Bike Rack easily carries road, mountain, and fat-tire bikes with wheels between 26in and 29in and tires up to 5in, from Point A to Point B. With 18” between the trays, bike clearance is downright spacious, and making it even better, the bike tray spacing can be easily adjusted without tools via its QuickChange lever while the bikes are already loaded to virtually eliminate any issues with bike-to-bike interference. Putting convenience right in your hand, the RemoteControl tilt lever and lightweight, aluminum design makes raising and lowering the rack incredibly easy, while the tool-free locking SpeedKnob securely and safely installs the tray to your vehicle. Then, peace of mind comes to you in the form of the burly SKS cable lock system that secures each bike's wheel and frame.

  • A rack that fits all types of bikes from mountain to road
  • Fits on vehicles with 1.25in & 2in hitch receivers

Nice try but fatally flawed

I've put it through the wringer

After less than 3 months using this rack the thin metal box that is the tray cracked around the area closest to the front hook base due to the following forces: - torque applied during the act of securing front wheel - torque applied releasing front wheel - driving down any road - riding over rough pave, potholes, speedbumps etc The bikes never liked to stay put no matter how carefully you tried to secure them. The inherent flexibility of the structure hooking the front tire causes metal fatigue and the wobbling you see at first gets steadily worse until failure. At this time replacement parts even if they become available will not solve the lack of engineering, so good luck.


This issue not being addressed is Concerning.

Looks like a defective unit. I've had a 1st gen dr tray since mid 2017 and it is not doing that despite hundreds of hours of use about 10 months out of every year. Out of curiosity did you have an e bike on it? Most of them exceed the 40lb per bike weight limit.

This rack has it all!

I've used it several times

This rack is so well thought out that not a detail has been spared to make your life easier. -- The basics are completely taken care of with an easy to load set-up for two bikes. A single person can load their bike without problems. Furthermore, it's super secure and the locking feature is well designed. It's strong and easy to use and if you're not using it, you hide it away so you're not tangling up cords or etc. The details are well thought out on this piece. Now you can lower the bikes, even when fully loaded to access inside the hatch of your car. Also, obviously the rack folds up so when you're not using it, there isn't a ton of wasted space. Overall, this is a great purchase and reasonably priced for all it does!

Nice rack!

I've used it several times

Very sturdy, solidly build rack. Taken bikes on long freeway trips with cross winds (SLC to St George), and on bumpy dirt roads (to Gooseberry Mesa). Holds most bikes securely. I have had some issues with 29" wheel bikes slipping backwards (towards the bike's rear wheel). I think the higher tire profile keeps the arm from being able to limit the movement of the bike from front to back. This is easily fixed with a cheap velcro strap securing the front wheel to the tire tray on the frame. Lateral stability is great.

Doctor; Doctor

I've used it several times

long story short id just like to leave a pros and cons to this rack. Pros: -easy install to vehicle -adjustable so bikes will never touch (front back and side to side) also if you own a truck (when tail gate is lowered you can adjust so the tailgate wont hit the rack. -additional bike (option to buy an add on) -comes with locks -bottle opener on rack (key for after the ride) -holds almost all bikes, minus 20in bikes -bash guard for underneath the nob that tightens into the hitch. (drainage's and other off road obstacles have been known to really take a beating on hitch racks yakima put a steel fin below the nob that tightens the rack to the hitch to insure that you dont just blast off the nob) Cons: -locks stowaway system is left to be desired. -when bikes are on rack it has a little bit of play -long enduro style bikes sometimes dont fit the greatest becasue the tray itself isnt terribly long so the front tire doesnt always sit in there with great confidence. longer trips i will Voille strap the front wheel into the tray as well just in case. All in all i would suggest it to other people, there is still some small improvements to be done but Yakima thought this one out for sure

This is a great rack!

I've put it through the wringer

I bought this to go on the back of my new vehicle. It is about the best rack I've used. It's easy to put on and take off the vehicle, and it's easy to put the bikes on and take them off. I also like the fact that you can lock the bikes. I wouldn't trust them locked up overnight, but it's definitely enough that I feel safe leaving the bikes on the rack to go in to a restaurant and grab something to eat and drink after a ride. I highly recommend this rack.

Expanded capabilities

I've used it several times

Being a longtime roadie, I was convinced recently to buy a fat tire bike. I had the Holdup which I had used for many years happily, but it doesn't accommodate the 4" and 5" tires on these bikes. Yakima recommended the Dr. Tray that has turned out to have several advantages over the Holdup. Besides being able to carry the wider tire bikes as well as my road bikes, the rack has a superior mounting/locking mechanism, can adjust in two planes in order to help fit different bikes, and even has an improved bottle opener. I also like the new lighter construction. Great rack
