Excellent e bike rack. I used a front mount hitch to use this unit. Wife and I bought EBC bikes to use on our trips. We have a 5th wheel that made me use this mount.

by:

etrailer: prompt delivery, fair price! Rack: It does fit my (2) Gazelle T10 eBikes. 1) I found I had to adjust every setting to get bikes to fit. Until you learn there are many adjustments, it does not seem like the center/vertical clamps will reach both seat posts. 2) The ramp is barely usable; my wheels are max it will fit and you must have at least 12ft of clearance on each side of car to get bike lined up with ramp. 3) My bikes have a "walk" feature, this is not usable as its too awkward to hold the walk button down and move around the rack. I found its easier to abandon the ramp and load front then rear wheel. I will rig up a wheel stop, on ends of each wheel holder so bike will not roll off while I strap it in. 4) Rack did NOT come with a lock for hitch pin; this is very disappointing as they say in manual this is an optional item. Every rack I have seen at least has a clip that would otherwise hold the hitch pin in if somehow the bolt loosened up. 5) The rack weight is the lightest I have found. 6) You must load the first bike (closest to car) from car passenger side. This will avoid you bike pedals hitting the vertical bar. That means you must load the 2nd bike manually as there is no way to get the pedals past the vertical bar. I will get used to this, I hope. 7) The rack is a few inches above the receiver (part that goes into hitch) so if you have a low hitch this might be an issue with ground clearance. With both bikes mounted up, it seems very stable and hopefully will be secure in travel.


Comments
Thank you for all of the points. The ramp length is 52 inches so it is important to have that space available to utilize the ramp. The hitch lock that secures the rack to your vehicle is sold separately at item # Y07235
Yakima HitchLock for Yakima Hitch Mounted Bike Racks - Same Key System (SKS)
$28.95
. There is about a 6 inch rise from your hitch receiver to the lowest point of the rack.

This bike rack is better than I expected it to be. Very well built holds our two e-bikes perfectly.



- Y36FR
by:

It should be Yakima asking for user comments. I used the on-ramp for more than 1500 miles of transport for two Gazelle C8 E-bikes. The off center vertical support post is a bit wobbly, and is not compatible with mounting two step thru frame style bikes. Additionally, an e-bike with typically integrated gram battery requires larger hold down clamps which this rack does not have. The second bike requires the use of a frame cross-bar to provide a clamping point. The included ramp is a welcome feature eliminating having to lift bikes. Although the rack is rated for the e-bike weight, I remove the batteries for transport as recommended by Gazelle.


Comments
The connection point in the middle turns and goes up and down to try and get the best fit for all kinds of bike frames. If you have a carbon fiber bike or an alternate frame, you may like the Kuat NV Item # BA22B
Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - Matte Black

better as it attaches onto the wheel instead. However, the ramp for that bike rack is sold separately at item # ANVBRB

works for my setup. I have 2 lectric bikes and it carried them no problem. My minor issue is my Outdoors RV Trailer is high off the ground and the "ramp" is much too short to be helpful.

Quick summary of Yakima On Ramp bike rack: Great service from etrailer.com, but in spite of Yakima’s claim that the rack is designed for bikes with up to 3.25 inch tires, when attached at a 45 degree angle as specified by Yakima, the tie down straps do not fit either of my bikes (27.5x2.4 and 27.5x2.8 inch tires).


Comments
For tires sized 3.25 to 4.5 the OnRamp FatStraps Item # Y23FR
Fat Tire Straps for Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack - Qty 2
$19.95
will need to be purchased.

The design does not work well with my Ride 1Up bikes. In order to mount the bikes so handle bars don’t rub, the need to be mounted facing away from each other. When mounted that way the support bracket strap is not long enough to strap around the battery. I have reached out to Yakima to see if different straps are available. I will probably need to return this unit.


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. I recommend removing the battery when using the bike rack. It would allow the strap to be used and allow the bikes to be lighter when using the bike rack.

With the assistance of the helpful staff at etrailer, we landed on the bike rack that works great for our needs. With an e-bike that is heavy to lift, it is nice having the ramp to load and unload and the frame supports are flexible enough to mount on both of our bikes without needing a bike adapter bar.

This rack is just what we needed for our new ebikes. We started off putting the bikes in the back of the pickup, but were getting tired of lifting the heavy bikes. The OnRamp was easy to assemble and mount on the vehicle. Loading the heavy bikes takes a reasonable amount of effort, and I think some practice will make the job fairly easy. It takes a little finesse to keep the fat tires on the ramp while loading and unloading. One of our bikes has 4 inch fat tires, so I ordered the longer wheel straps for fat tires. The specs for the rack said the maximum tire diameter they would accommodate was 3.25 inches. However the straps provided worked just fine on the 4 inch fat tires. Longer straps were not needed. Larger tires would require longer straps. I also ordered a lock for the hitch pin, but on our first bike trip with the OnRamp, I just used a piece of chain and a pad lock to lock the rack to the pickup while we were riding, and that worked fine. I also noticed that the provided cable lock is long enough to lock the hitch to the vehicle using the hitch receiver holes for trailer chains. I guess someone could steal the hitch pin if you were just using the chain or cable, and that would be inconvenient. We took a ride around the local wildlife refuge this morning, and were pleased with how well the hitch does its job. This one's a keeper! The etrailer customer service was outstanding! They noticed that one item I ordered was going to be delayed, so they recommended a replacement. When I accepted their suggestion, they took care of changing the order. Really helpful and on the ball! I will definitely shop on etrailer for future purchases.

Great Rack - Very Happy! We just purchased 2 x e-bikes which weigh about 52 lbs each. Was debating between this and the Thule. Chose the Yakima because fo the positive reviews I read and very happy I did. Assembly and Installation wasn't difficult but it did take some time to get everything adjusted correctly. But once I did, it's only about 10 minutes to load / unload the bikes. The rack is very sturdy and transported our bikes safely and securely. In addition, service from etrailer was fantastic. Communication was awesome and delivery was great. Both the Yakima OnRamp and etrailer.com highly recommended!

We installed it this afternoon. I am sure with practice loading the bikes will get easier. I do need to get the Yakima Fat Tire Straps Y23FR, at least two sets when they are available. Really appreciate the advise from etrailer personnel. Top Notch.



- Y36FR
by:

I was amazed at at how well built this bike rack was put together. It took me 10 minutes to assemble and the instructions were easy to read.My only issue is that my E bike has large tires on it and there should of been some provisions made for E bikes that have the mountain bike/beach bike type tires.None of the straps will work because they aren't long enough and I am going to have to pay someone to make cradles for the tires/wheels to sit in because the factory ones are to narrow.

We needed a solution for folks in their 70's when carrying an ebike on the back of an RV. The bike is a bit heavier than our old manual bikes. This rack has a ramp that my 100 lb wife can use to get the bike on/off the RV. I am too busy with a Margarita to lift it in place. The rack is light, sturdy and easy to use. A perfect solution to our dilemma.



- Y36FR
by:

Once I got things figured out it was great. Rack holds my 2 Lectric bikes very well. Ordered the extra long straps but they are on back order. Recommend loosening the wheel strap holders and the trays to adjust once the bikes are loaded. Also depending on your frame may need to purchase bike rack cross bar tube. A little iffy on the loading ramp. Yakima is a very good producer of bike racks.



- Y36FR
by:

I was amazed at how versatile it is. I can’t believe all the adjustments that are possible. We have 2 lectric e-bikes ,they fit great on the carrier along with the covers. Great product.



- Y36FR
by:

The rack looks great and was easy to set up with clear instructions for adjustments for our ebikes. Securing our make of ebike was a bit difficult however as the is no crossbar; I had to make several changes to the platform wheel-base to accommodate securing to the frame.



- Y36FR
by:

This is a great bike rack. We use it to carry two e-bikes and have had no issues. One bike has fenders and the other is a step through - the adjustable clamps and wheel cradles make it easy to secure the bikes. One has balloon tires, and just fits inside the wheel cradle, so I’m not sure how a fat tire bike would work. The ramp is awesome, can be placed on either side, is long enough to be helpful, and short enough to stow. When the rack is folded up, it fits snug to our vehicle.



- Y36FR
by:

Seems to be all it was advertised, works well for our 2 stepthru frame ebikes on motorhome and tow vehicle. Nice high clearance,loading ramp works better than I expected, reccomend for people looking to use with RV especially



- Y36FR
by:

The spec information from web site said ramp will take up to widths of 3.25" but the tray is only 2" and will not work! The main reason for buying was the ramp feature so I did not have to lift my bikes one of which is 60 lbs. I still have to lift them, not happy!


Comments
This is a little silly and confusing. The ramp tray is only 2 inches but the manufacturer says this can fit 3.25 to 4.5 tires with the OnRamp FatStraps Item # Y23FR

Alot of ebikes are fat tire. I think its crappy of Yakima to call this an ebike rack but then require you to buy straps to make it work. Additionally the ramp is to narrow for most fat tire bikes



- Y36FR

Waiting to actually take our Ebikes on our first trip. Received my Yakama ramp the other day and like the way the bikes feel mounted to the car. After a long wait for delivery the rack was delivered and looked great the way it was packaged. Other than the very first step in the instructions showing an error in hole alignment for attaching the rack to the tongue, things were easy to follow. It took quite a bit of time to adjust everything on the rack to fit my particular bikes but now that we are set it looks and feels good. The weight of the rack is a bit more than I anticipated but it feels solid.

My experience was 5 star. The purchase was a Yakima bike rack to accommodate e bike and approved for 5th wheel travel trailer. The review videos are extremely helpful and information about the product was thorough. The rack shipped within days. Another plus. In my general search for the rack I was happy to see etrailer as a seller. I have done business with you in the past. Always satisfied.



- Y36FR

I really like my OnRamp Bike Ramp. Although not terribly difficult to mount on the trailer hitch, wish it were a bit easier. To get a "snap in", "snap out" mount, one is going to have to pay a lot more. The OnRamp is good value for the money.

Box arrived partly open, am missing one adjustable Frame clamp and who knows what else. Will not know until we put it together in a couple of days when my son can help me. I expect the missing part will be replaced, who knows if it was on the rack when mailed or stolen in route. I hope other parts are not missing since no parts list was enclosed. Will repost if I can get service for replacing the missing part and it can be found in stock. Hopefully this will get posted.
