We think that the Ridgeback 4 bike rack from Yakima is pretty ingenious. It allows easy access to the rear cargo area of your vehicle even with a swing away carrier installed (see photos below). Simply put: There's no better bike system on the planet.
• 4-bike carrying capacity
• Compatible with 2" and 1.25" receivers straight out of the box
• New UpperHand™ lever tilts rack down for vehicle access
• Folds flat for storage
• New ZipStrips™ secure bikes to the rack and are fully removable
• Tool-free SpeedKnob™ quickly tightens and locks the rack to your car
• Anti-sway cradles eliminate bike-to-bike contact
• Integrated bottle opener
NOTE: Bikes must be removed from rack before tilting downward.
Easy installation. And a rousing "thumbs up" from GoWesty employees.
