Now the family bikes can ride in style. The FullSwing™has all the bells and whistles, from new ZipStrips™to fully padded arms. It also swings away with one touch, for easy access to your car whenever you need.
The handy installation guide is quite detailed and will get the job done. If you have experience with this sort of thing, you can probably skip the formal teaching lesson, but for purposes of this test I went step by step to ensure a proper, secure, and stable connection.
Some folks only need a rack for a bike or two. Bike enthusiasts who like to ride with friends could always use an extra spot for another bike. Carpooling it to a trailhead or meetup spot will save on gas, and can be a lot of fun as the pre-ride comraderie gets a headstart. Families! Oh yeah, families can definitely put this Yakima FullSwing bike rack to use.
Fork mounts make it easy to load and unload your bike and require you to remove the front wheel (which can be stored in your vehicle or on the roof with a wheel fork).
Wheel-on mounts allow you to load and unload your bike fully assembled, meaning it’s ready to go as soon as you get to the trail.
Hanging racks tilt or swing out of the way to access your vehicle’s trunk or hatch. They’re great options for carrying multiple bikes (fit up to 5 bikes), but be aware of the type of bike - anything without traditional geometry may need a top tube adapter.
Tray racks can carry virtually any type of bike (and fit up 2 bikes or 4 with an extension). They offer more spacing between bikes to minimize interference and can either tilt or swing (with an adapter) out of the way while loaded.
