      EBike friendly

      We carried two fifty pound eBikes (50 lbs each). Loads easy, very secure, locking cable for added protection. Five years used and still happy. Had someone back into us in a parking lot and damage the rack. We promptly replaced it with the same model with the insurance money, A testimony to how happy we are with it.

      Installed myself!

      I just received the hitch a few days ago and as a single female I was worried I wouldn’t be able to install it on my own. But after watching the installation video I was motivated and thought I’d give it a shot and I was able to do the install no problem! I haven’t rode with my bike in yet but it definitely seems like a solid rack. It’s super easy to get my bike in and out and I can even open my civic trunk when it’s in its folded up position!

      Straps are cheaply made and brittle

      Just assembling rack onto vehicle and a wheel strap broke into 3 pieces as I unhooked it. So the rack is useless until Yakima replaces strap; which I fear will be as cheaply made. So disappointed.

      Great except for clearance on chunkier 29ers

      Everything is great except the limitation of tire sizes. The arm really struggles to make it over my 2.4” 29er front wheel at around 25 psi. You’d think they’d play it safe and give more room given the range of tires available and prevalence of 29+.

      Have only used once. Beware that does not work with front fender. Much easier to use than my older bike rack.

      Reliable and stylish

      I purchased in 2017 and in 2020 this rack still wows me! I chose this model based on its design. I was tired of having to disassemble the front wheel of bicycles to fit in the backseat of my car and later SUV. I had a trunk mount strap-on rack that hadn't failed but was always paranoid that it might tear the trunk off or the bikes would go soaring off in a head on collision. The Yakima HoldUp solved both of those issues. It allows the bicycles to be mounted without disassembling the bikes, and its 3 point locking system--ratcheting lockdown arm for the front wheel, ratcheting strap buckle for the rear wheel, and a wire with keyed lock that can wrap around the bike frame--keeps the bicycles securely attached to the rack. The bike rack goes above and beyond. It fits so well behind my Outback that I often forget that it is there when driving. It makes no noise, no additional rumbling and creates no apparent drag. The bicycle rack has another keyed lock at the hitch point so that it can be secured from theft. That the lock has a plastic cap to cover the keyhole. This has been key (pun intended) in keeping it free from moisture and corrosion since we use a lot of road salt in the Chicago area during the winters.
      This rack has proven itself against user error twice so far. Once while carrying one bike, I forgot to secure the second empty bike rack position and the carrying arm of the empty rack got loose. Another driver warned me that it was dragging along the street. Despite having dragged for at least three miles, it was undamaged besides the plastic on the wire lock and carrying arm being moderately worn away from being dragged on the road. Yet everything still functions perfectly. Another time, when carrying two bikes I didn't secure the carrying arm well enough on one of the bikes, and after completing a drive, I discovered that that bike had gotten loose. However because I secured the bike at another point, the ratcheting strap on the rear wheel, the bike was saved from being lost or dragged much to my relief although it was tilting precariously.
      Before you think this is all praise, there are some things to get used to in owning this fine piece. Much of its reliability and workmanship is due to its weight. It is heavy; it leaves marks on my garage wall where I lean it and generally takes time and patience to install and remove from the vehicle. It blocks the backup camera when stored in the up position but I got used to going old school and using the mirrors when reversing. The plastic ratcheting rear wheel strap is flexible and worries me that it may be the first thing to break but as described above, it did not fail when I failed to secure my bike through not using the other two points on the rack properly.
      In summary, this rack is reliable and stylish (check out how I made it my own in the photo attached!). It travels locally frequently and has traveled from Chicago to as far as Upper Peninsula Michigan and to middle Kentucky carrying two bicycles without any additional or significant fuel usage that I can tell. I am excited to bring it to North Dakota later this month. Thank you Yakima!

      Do not buy!

      I thought this was a good rack since my Dad has used it for several months. This week we went on a simple 1-hour drive to go on a bike ride. On the way back, my bike was violently launched from the rack and is now lost forever.
      Do not buy this rack, unless you hate it and want it to be destroyed, then it would be perfect.

      Yakima holdup

      High quality components, easy to assemble and easy to operate. Wish it stuck out an inch more then my hatch would clear the rack without moving it but that’s just with my Allroad. Can’t fit every vehicle ideally. Super easy to load

      Great Rack

      Tired of hoisting my road bike up to the roof of my SUV. Just what the doctor ordered. Couldn’t be easier! Should have done this a long time ago.

      Bad for 29er, doesn't tip enough, too high

      I spent a lot to get what should be one of the nicer racks. While it IS well made and sturdy, it is NOT well designed.
      It BARELY fits my 29x2.3 tires, like I have to muscle it over them. I want to go bigger on the front tire so this rack is useless. Also it barely even sits in the nonadjustable rear wheel trays because they are designed for smaller bikes.
      It comes up too high from the hitch so, even when empty, I can't open my rear door because the wheel holders are in the way. Tipping it does not help.
      The tipping feature...is useless. You get what I'd call, about 5 degrees of tip which gets you NOTHING. And the place it pivots from is way too high. The pivot should be down low and move at least 40 degrees.

      1. This hitch rack fits your vehicle with a 2 inch hitch. Extra straps are not needed.

      1. Yes! This hitch rack can accommodate a bike with 20-inch wheels.

        Helpful?

      1. The ratcheting StrongArm design for the HoldUp must grip the tire in front of the bike’s fork to secure it properly. Since the Neo bike’s fenders are in the way, we recommend choosing a hitch rack that secures the bike's frame instead of the front wheel.

      1. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The bike is secured to the rack at the point of the tires, not at the frame. We will update this detail shortly.

      1. To lock the bike to this rack, find the lock cables that come out of the top of the pivot arm. Begin by wrapping the locking cable around the bike frame, then insert the pin from the pivot arm into the hole at the end of the locking cable, then lock the lock core using the key.

      1. Yes, you are still able to use this rack, however, we recommend using a towel in between the wheel and fender to act as a buffer and prevent the fender from breaking.
