    Review of Yakima HoldUp Hitch 2 Bike Rack

    Love this product ! Assembled very easily to back hitch of car, although you have to pay attention to how the bike brackets go on. It would be easy to get them reversed. Pay attention to the Yakima stickers and they will clue you in. Rack needs to say Yakima on back (to be read by a car behind you) when down holding bikes or up and folded out of they way for non bike transport. Bike clamp instructions said don't use on bike with fenders. I had to, no choice, so I put a small washcloth size towel over the fender and clamped the holder down over the towel. Worked fine for my trips. Guess Yakima has to say that kind of thing in their assembly instructions to relieve some type of liability. Great rack, love it well worth the extra money. I had a cheap $ 49 type rack I bought on Amazon and it worked but scratched my two new bikes up quite a bit. No scratch problems with the Yakima rack. A good buy.

    Hi Karl,

    Thank you for sharing your review of the Yakima HoldUp Hitch 2 Bike Rack! It's great to hear that you found it easy to assemble and that it doesn't scratch your bikes like your previous rack did. It's also helpful to know that it's important to pay attention to the bike bracket installation and to the Yakima stickers on the rack for proper use. Thank you for your insights and recommendation!

    Works great with 2 Pace ebikes

    Our 2 Pace 500 ebikes both fit fine on this 1.25 rack without the battery well within the weight limit. The CURT 18050 61-Inch Bike Rack Support Strap and a velcro strap around the bottom back wheel are very helpful. Our Pace 500's have traveled thousands of miles with this rack.

    Hi Timothy,

    Thank you for leaving a review! We are happy to hear the rack has met your expectations! Ride more, be happy!

    Easy to assemble

    Watched many YouTube videos about this rack before purchasing and saw the quality and easy functionality for holding ebikes. This rack was very easy to assemble and is well packaged and protected during shipment even though exterior box looks like it was worn out a bit, the contents inside were in brand new condition. Yakima is a quality name in racks and equipment and has been around for long time.

    Thanks for the review! We're happy to hear that the Yakima HoldUp Hitch 2 Bike Rack was easy to assemble and meets your expectations. Happy trails!
