Why We Like The HoldUp Bike Rack

The trails around home will always be special, but sometimes you’ve just gotta throw your stallions onto the Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack and get out to ride some new dirt, ya know? Whether you’re rallying out to PNW loam, desert slickrock or New England roots, the HoldUp’s padded StrongArms will lock down your wheels (provided they’re between 20 and 29in), and you can slide the trays away from each other to make sure your bikes don’t bang together on washboard back roads.

Forgot the snacks in the back? No worries, just tilt the HoldUp down, even if it’s loaded, and fuel up for the second leg of the journey. The included Single Key System (SKS) locks secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to the car, so you can stop in for a worry-free cup of Road Trip Blend to fuel you on the second leg of the journey.

Broken 2X in less than 10 Years

I've put it through the wringer

I've owned this rack for about 9 years. It's broken twice--the arms develop a wobble and get loose. The first time Yakima warrantied/replaced the arms after my LBS said they proactively sent out new arms. The second time, Yakima won't warranty them over the fact that I don't have my receipt. Moreover, they've been condescending about it my not having a receipt (which is odd because they don't have a record of sending my LBS new arms). Anyway, it's a rack. It develops a wobble so bad the arms will fall down in the folded down position and drag on the road. Also Yakima won't stand behind their product. Beyond those issues, it's not great for modern 29" mountain bikes--even with 2.35 tires.

Great Rack

I've used it several times

Love it! Easy to install and is quiet, (no rattling). Works great for all bikes. Keeps my bikes safe and secure.
