The rack was very simple to assemble and install on my 2023 Hyundi Palisade. The ramp makes it so much easier to load my Electra cruiser bike. I have ordered an electric bike from EBC, and I can't wait to try loading it. I will try to follow up when I get the new bike and use the rack some more.



by:

Most e bikes are up at 80lbs.
Yakima
has been in the game for a long time and this unit is built like a tank.
The unit is heavy, but it speaks for itself.
If you are traveling any distance this is the most stable unit I have owned.



by:

Looks like it will work great!

I may change this to five stars after we use the rack a couple times. We were disappointed that it was evident this rack was used and returned. The parts were in a ziplock freezer bag. There is tar or some black substance on the rack. The instruction top sheet was torn off. The box is a tapped up mess. Just letting you know, I ordered a new rack.



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.



by:

This is a great product and works beautifully! The only issue was some sloppily made plastic turn knobs that were cross threaded on arrival. However, Yakima immediately shipped out replacements. It carries two large E bikes easily. They fasten solidly and are easy to load and unload!



by:

Arrived shortly after ordering and we assembled the same day. Carried our electric bike first time and with a few adjustments to decrease bike movement we should be good to go. Love how easily and nicely it folds up.



by:

Good rack for 2” receiver hitch. Seems to carry heavy e-Bikes well. I wish the vertical support was heavier gauge or an additional support



by:

Excellent bike rack. I had a very small issue trying to hook up the hitch part, but all went well. Also, I received excellent customer service from Sara. She was very helpful and extremely friendly. It was a pleasure receiving great customer service from Sara.



by:

I must say I have never had a better experience buying a product online! The videos comparing various ebike racks were every informative, candid and helped make an informed decision. I was amazed by the swift delivery - 36 hours after ordering the rack, it was at my front door. Tracking transit of the rack is extremely well integrated on the etrailer website. Yakima wanted $XX to ship their rack and etrailer shipped free. I wholeheartedly recommend eTrailer to anyone wanting a hassle free and professional transaction.



by:

We purchased this rack for our fifth wheel based on etrailer’s video and description that stated the rack’s load capacity was 66 pounds per bike. However, when we received the package, Yakima’s literature stated that the load capacity was only 40 pounds when installed on an RV. We called Dan at etrailer. He was very helpful in securing a return with a prepaid shipping label. Great customer service, just an unacceptable product for our needs.



by:

We love this rack. Both my wife and I use it all the time. I can mount and remove it in less than 5 minutes. I often transport 2 substantial ebikes. When we ride together, either of us is able to load and unload both of our bikes in less than 8 minutes. This is a solid rack and the price was definitely right. And when not in use it folds up neatly behind the bumper.



by:

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.



by:

Great company good product
I think Yakima
should supply a pin lock with the unit
It was maybe there on the order page
I didn’t see it Maybe add a drop thing like hey you may want to order this with your bike rack



by:

The tracks support wide tires, but clearly not for the offroad version wide tires that my Aventon bikes have and the ramp to load the bikes is completely useless as it is not wide enough for the tires so you just cannot keep the bike on the ramp. So, you have to lift the heavy bike up onto the rack and it takes two people, one to lift it in place and another to hold it while strapping it down. The center bar is not adjustable in placement and so very difficult to get two bikes properly mounted.



by:

The rack is well designed and easy to use. The ramp is a life saver for getting heavier ebikes onto the rack.



by:

This bike rack is very well designed and easy to use. The ramp provides a great option for easy loading and unloading. The design of the clamps that attach the bikes to the rack is excellent because it works on bikes of different sizes and brands. Whenever someone mentions getting an e-bike, I recommend this rack.



by:

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!



by:

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



by:

I would have given it a 5 star except for the ramp. I have Specialized Como e-bikes. The ramp is not wide enough to fit my tires (27.5x2.3) very well. It is a a little difficult to track the bike up the ramp. Otherwise it is a quality bike rack and works as stated,



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

I purchased this for a Quietkat e-bike and would love it except the tires on the bike are wider than the rake and ramp.



by:

In a Honda CRV, just finished a round trip, North Carolina to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and back, carrying an e-bike and road bike, over 3500 miles. Bikes were rock solid on back, no movement between bikes and rack. Heavy e-bike easy to roll up supplied ramp, road bike a simple lift. Super system! Being paranoid about theft, several different types of bike locks were used. We're soon off on a cross country to Washington State and back, and I am adding a durable cover over the bikes, protecting them from rain and curious eyes.

I have no hesitation recommending this when an e-bike is too heavy for a another type rack.

  • Super Heavy Duty Bike Rack For Two 60 lb E-Bikes
    Hello Don. Our best option for a super heavy duty bike rack is the Yakima OnRamp LX # Y88DJ. This has an 80 lb per bike rating which give you plenty of cushion. 80 lbs per bike is the max rating for any hitch mounted bike rack we offer, so this truly is the strongest rack on the market. It has a built-in ramp attachment which make loading heavy bikes easy. It will also accommodate larger tires- up to 5" wide. We made a video reviewing this rack and I have linked it for you below.

  • Solution for Lights on Yakima OnRamp LX
    Hi Kevin; the Yakima OnRamp LX # Y88DJ you purchased doesn't have a specific light kit designed to fit bike rack. The best option would be to add the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 which will stick on to the rack.

  • Can Yakima OnRamp be Used in Hitch of Flat Towed Vehicle
    Hey Patti, yes the Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack part # Y88DJ is compatible with vehicles that are being flat towed so it would work well for you. The ramp built into this will make loading the bikes quite a bit easier as well.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Carrying A Troxus Explorer Step Over And Step Thru E-Bike
    I looked up your Troxus Explorer bikes and the step thru bike weighs 81.57lbs and the step over weighs 83.78lbs. You will have to remove the 11.5lb batteries to ensure your bike is under the 80lb weight limit per bike of the Yakima OnRamp LX Bike Rack # Y88DJ. I feel this is the best option as it includes a ramp to make loading those heavy bikes into the rack much easier. The attachment arm also allows you to connect to the frame or seat post to hold your bikes in place. And should you...

  • Best Bike Rack For Cannondale Neo Allroad S Electric Bike
    Hey Sylvester, Thanks for reaching out and I found a superb bike rack for you to transport your Cannondale Neo Allroad S Electric Bike, which is a rack from Yakima: - Yakima OnRamp LX Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # Y88DJ There are a number of reasons I love the # Y88DJ for your Cannondale, stating with its ramp. Your Neo Allroad S weighs nearly 65 lbs like you said, and who wants to lift that much weight just to ride a bike? The OnRamp LX solves that problem by giving you an integrated...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Lectric 3.0 Step-Thru With Fenders
    The Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # Y88DJ you were looking at would actually be perfect. It looks like the Lectric 3.0 tops out at 64 lbs so the rack can handle the weight. It also uses padded clamps to hold it by the frame or seat post. This eliminates the problem of securing a bike that has fenders and a step-thru design. It will also make it easy to load with the ramps. Assuming you have a 2" hitch on both vehicles it will work for both.

  • What is New About Yakima OnRamp LX Bike Rack vs. Previous Version
    Hi Paul, The original Yakima OnRamp has been discontinued, and there are a number of different upgrades that come with the Yakima OnRamp LX Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # Y88DJ. The most important for most people is probably the capacity; while the original OnRamp had a 66 lb per-bike capacity, the LX has an 80 lb per-bike capacity. The load rating doesn't get higher than that, so it can be used for even the heaviest of ebikes. It will also work with wheelbases up to 54", which is 4"...

  • Solution for Lights on Yakima OnRamp LX Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes
    The License Plate and Tail Light Relocation Kit for Yakima EXO System # Y74VR is specifically designed to fit the EXO System. There would not be a good way to mount this on the Yakima OnRamp LX Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # Y88DJ. Although it would be lacking a license plate bracket and light, you could add lights to your bike rack using the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Two Trek Verve+ 3 E-Bikes
    Hey Connie, For your two Trek Verve+ 3 e-bikes I recommend the Yakima OnRamp LX Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # Y88DJ. It has a per bike capacity of 80lbs to accommodate your 54lb e-bikes. The rack does weigh a bit more at 70lbs but it's the best option because it comes with a ramp and has adjustable padded clamps that you can move around to fit the frame of the bikes. Most other racks will have issues with the fenders/rear rack and end up damaging them or just not getting a secure clamp...

  • Can Yakima OnRamp be Used with Highlander and Truck Camper
    Hey Barbara, yes the Yakima OnRamp # Y88DJ can be used on both your camper and Highlander. It's a really great e-bike rack that is RV rated and if you wanted to add the swing away adapter you can too with the part # Y02483. It's not super hard to remove or install but it does have a bit of weight to it.

    While we do have a review stating our etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e33AR did fit a 2022 Kia Niro PHEV they did mention having to do some additional trimming. I do see EcoHitch does make a custom fit receiver for your 2021 Niro PHEV but we are not allowed to carry it yet. Be sure to check our the Yakima OnRamp LX Bike Rack # Y88DJ for carrying your bikes. I like this rack as it can hold the bikes in place by a seat post, frame or steering head. It also has a ramp to making loading...

  • E-Bike Rack for Jeep Wrangler that Allows Rear Door to Swing Out
    Hey Wayson, so our best option that covers everything you need is going be with the Yakima OnRamp bike rack part # Y88DJ and the pivoting hitch adapter part # Y02483. This will give you an e-bike rack that will clear the rear spare of your Wrangler and when swung out will allow you to open the rear door.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Carrying 2 E-Bikes with 4" Tires Weighing 75LBS Each

It has a ramp for making loading your bikes easier and the bikes are held in place with tire straps and a frame mount which you can attach to the seat post, frame or steering head.

  • Is There a 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver For a Bike Rack On a 2021 Buick Encore GX?
    We do have the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C93VV for your 2021 Buick Encore GX. This has the 2" receiver opening for a bike rack like the Yakima OnRamp # Y88DJ. This particular bike rack can carry bikes up to 80lbs with up to 5" wide tires. I really like it for heavy bikes as the ramp makes it much easier to load and unload your bikes.

  • Is There a Bike Rack For Front Hitch on Truck
    Hey David, The call on the Hollywood Racks Destination E-Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # HLY66ZR not being approved for use on a front mount hitch is entirely the manufacturer's due to the increased instability at the front of the vehicle. You can do it, but the warranty will be voided, so just take note. The option we have that will work that is the closest to the Destination in that it is a platform rack that can carry heavy ebikes and also grasps the bikes by their frames is the Yakima...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Carrying 2 E-Bikes Behind a 2011 Toyota RAV4
    So we may have an issue if your 82lb e-bike weighs that with the battery removed. Our heaviest capacity racks are only capable of carrying bikes up to 80lbs. For your 2011 Toyota RAV4 I recommend the Yakima OnRamp LX Bike Rack # Y88DJ with the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y02483. This way you will be able to swing the bikes out of the way should you need to access your rear storage area. The bike rack includes a ramp for easier loading and unloading, and is capable of carrying...

  • Swing Out Bike Rack Recommendation for Jetson E-Bikes
    Hey W, I would recommend the Yakima OnRamp e-bike rack par # Y88DJ with the BackSwing pivot part # Y02483. This will give you an e-bike rack that has the higher weight capacity you need that has the ability to swing out with bikes loaded (to passenger side) like you are wanting and also has a ramp setup to make loading and unloading the bikes easier. For a bike rack cover then you'd want the part # S24FR but you'd only be able to use it when the rack is used behind the motorhome since...

  • Is There E-Bike Rack that Can Fit Bike Wheelbase of 52 inches
    Hey Freddy, so the Inno lists that the max wheelbase of the Inno bike rack part # IN25RR is 51 inches which my gut tells me a 52 inch wheelbase bike is probably going to fit but it might be a little harder to deal with so it wouldn't be my ideal recommendation for you. The Yakima OnRamp e-bike rack part # Y88DJ instead would work better as it has a max wheelbase of 54 inches.
