Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.

Yakima SpareRide

The Yakima SpareRide lets you carry 2 bikes on your vehicle's factory spare tire. The rack features folding dual arms and SuperCush anti-sway cradles with ratcheting ZipStrip straps. It installs with a hand knob and universal mounting plate, and it includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.

SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradles with Ratcheting ZipStrip Straps

SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradles

The Yakima SpareRide has premium cradles to carry and protect your bikes during transport. The anti-sway cradles limit bike movement to help prevent bike-to-bike contact. Premium TPE padding protects your bikes' frames from damage by absorbing road shock and vibration.

Ratcheting ZipStrip Staps

The cradles also include ratcheting ZipStrip straps that make loading and unloading your bikes a breeze. Simply insert the strap into the buckles on the cradle and push it down until it's snug around your bike frame. The ZipStrips can be removed quickly by pressing the release levers on the sides of each anti-sway cradle.

Folding Dual Arms

SpareRide Folding Dual Arms

The SpareRide's dual arms provide excellent stability for your bikes during transport. The quick-release TriggerFinger control lever lets you quickly fold the arms down when you're not carrying any bikes. When you're ready to load the rack up again, simply lift the arms until they lock in place with an audible click.

Easy Installation with Universal Mounting Plate

SpareRide Mounting Plate

The rack installs on your spare tire mount with a plate and shank. The mounting plate fits over the lug nuts of your spare tire mount, and the shank extends from the plate through your spare tire's pilot hole. You can position this plate at 12 o'clock or 6 o'clock, depending on your lug nut pattern.

SpareRide Locking Hand Knob

Once the plate is installed, simply replace your spare tire, slide the rack onto the exposed shank, and tighten the hand knob.

Spare Ride Extensions for Oversized Tires

The system comes with a standard shank and 2 extensions shanks so you can mount the rack on vehicles with oversize tires up to 12-1/2" wide. The shanks swap out easily with the included Allen wrench.

Rubber TireTread Spacers

Rubber TireTread Spacers

The SpareRide features a pair of rubber TireTread spacers on the back of the rack. These spacers stabilize the rack against the spare tire and help protect the rack and your bikes from vibration. These spacers also guard your spare against damage caused by the rack rubbing against the tire.

Complete Security

SpareRide Cable Lock and Locking Knob

The SpareRide includes 2 keyed-alike Same Key System lock cores - one in the cable lock and the other in the hand knob. The cable lock wraps around your bikes, through the built-in anchor point on the front of the mast, and locks to itself. The hand knob tightens the rack to your spare tire. These SKS cores can be swapped out to make all your Yakima gear keyed alike.

Integrated Bottle Openers

Integrated Bottle Opener

An integrated bottle opener on the end of each arm allows you to enjoy a cold one after a long ride.

The quality of the Yakima bike carrier is excellent. When mounted, the spare tire holds it securely to my Jeep - the carrier does not move at all. It is very easy to load and unload bikes. etrailer’s customer support is excellent. The endcap on the bike carrier was scratched when it arrived. etrailer immediately shipped out a replacement. I will definitely be purchasing from etrailer again.

Jeep Wrangler

After a couple of weeks of researching which type of bike rack I wanted for my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK (hitch mount or spare tire), I decided on the spare tire mount. And after a 4hr (roundtrip) mountain biking weekend escape, I'm very happy with my decision.
What I like about the rack:
well built, very sturdy with bike(s) mounted (no sway or rattle), arms fold down and lock in place when not in use (looks slick), full access to cargo area without needing to remove rack, rack and bike cable locks included, economical, lifetime warranty and of course the dual bottle openers ; )
What I would improve upon or revise in a future model:
arms should be longer (even just an inch because bikes rub slightly so I had to add padding), more use of aluminum rather than plastic (thinking long term durability of the plastic locking teeth and arms)
Thanks eTrailer

Its been a year and Im very pleased with my decision on purchasing the Yakima Spare Tire Bike Rack. Its held up nicely and I get compliments and inquiries often. Ive recommended it and to all. Thanks again

2015 Jeep Wrangler

This bike carrier is great!

is very well made and is secured to the vehicle with a keyed lock. It comes with a locking cable for the bike as well. I can open the tailgate and access the trailer hitch while the bike is on the carrier.

I could not be more pleased!

It is working out fantastic! I am very pleased!

2012 Jeep Wrangler

1 year of use and I am extremely pleased with the Bike Rack. Installed easy, fits well, holds bikes very securely, easy and quick to put bikes on and off with the U shaped straps that click into place like a snowboard binding. Mounting lock and cable lock work great. I do use an extra bungee cord wrapped around bike frames and hooked onto bike rack to even minimize swinging of bikes more. Both men's frame bikes and women's frames with the add-on cross bar work well. Bikes clear Jeep body when swung open. Only issue was with the 2012 Jeep Wrangler 2 door. The metal arm that controls swinging open of rear door failed twice. It was due to the weight of the rack plus bikes overpowering the cheap little pins at the end of the control bar. Added my own strap from a boat trailer winch strap to limit door swing travel from going too far and breaking the arm again. See picture of strap and metal arm. Overall a great bike rack. -Fred O.


Easy to put on my 2004 Honda CR-V. I’m 57 yr old woman and did it myself. Very stable. I also bought the adapter bar for my women’s bike. Love it!

Love it. So easy to use. If I were taller, it would be even easier.

Toyota FJ Cruiser

1. Awesome rack, and cable locking
2. Great price from e-trailer (-$40 vs. Amazon)
3, Super sturdy and flexioble rubber tiedown straps make securing the bike easy
4. Had it installed on the FJ Cruiser in < 5 mins.
5. Doesn't stick out too far.

1. Wish the felt pads that protect the bike from rubbing against the rack were rubber instead of felt (one had already fallen off)
2. Blocks the back up camera on the FJ (this was called out to me prior to purchase though)
3. The way the bike hangs off the rack, it blocks the rear back up senser so it's always going off if it's activated.

2008 Toyota RAV4

Great bike rack. I had tried several for my Rav4, but none were quite right. This rack is solid, fits nicely on my spare tire. I am now able to access my trunk with my bike rack in place! Relatively easy installation, though had some trouble unscrewing one piece.

2007 Jeep Wrangler

Easy to install on my 2007 Jeep Wrangler. I used the short mounting bar. Looks great. Very light weight compared to the hitch mounted racks but, not sure about relative strength or stability with my bikes loaded, especially in off-road conditions. We'll see...

2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

These guys are top notch with excellent service! The Yakami tire rack fits my jeep perfect with no rattles, the bike is very secure. I would give etrailer and this rack a solid 10. Nice work guys!


The rack is a quality piece of equipment and I'm very impressed with it's workmanship. I installed it on my 2006 Honda CR-V and it went on without any problems. The entire installation may have taken 15 minutes. Two bikes fit very tightly.
Also, I ordered the rack on a Monday and it was delivered on Thursday. It went UPS ground (no shipping charge). I recommend it to anyone with a CR-V!


This is a sturdy bike rack. I like the security feature to lock/unlock the release knob to prevent theft. I have only used the rack for trips of about 10 miles so far but will travel over 200 this weekend (08/14).

Tip: Get something to immobilize the bike's front wheel so it doesn't swing freely.

My only complaint is that the instructions did not mention the need for a hex bolt head (nor the size) for a torque wrench that you will need to attach the rack. Luckily I found a square-shaped head that worked and prevented a trip to Home Depot. Other than this, the directions were very easy to follow.

Im very happy with this bike rack. Whether a short distance or 400 mile round trip, it holds up strong. Ive carried two triathlon bikes with no problem.
Derek K - 08/04/2015


Great rack and when set up right, it’s quiet!

John J - 05/25/2021


The bike carrier Yakima (Y02599) worked great on my jeep with LT 315/75R 16 tires. Easy to install. Looks Great. The customer service I received at etrailer was nothing but awaesome. Tory H is super to work with. Thanks for the greatest customer service I have experience in some time. I have attached a picture.

great product

Great Bike Rack. Easy to use.

2000 Jeep Wrangler

Ordered Yakima bike rack. Product arrived on time and as promised. Assembly
was simple. Appears to be a quality product.


The product is excellent. Fit my car easily and it has never come loose. I did add Blue Locktite to the threads(just a dot - not too much) and have taken it on and off just twice in the year. The other modification I made was to spread the bike mounts a little further apart on the rails. This meant I had to use a screwdriver to remove a single screw on each and drill new pilot holes about an inch out from the factory ones. This had made it much easier to mount two mountain bikes although I wish I had another 2 inches. Very pleased overall as I don't mind modifying gear a little to meet my needs. Other note - Car Washes such as Mikes won't let you through with this rack. I just go elsewhere.

2008 Jeep Wrangler

Ordered and it came the very next day, even though I picked standard shipping. Received multiple e-mails from etrailer updating me on the status of my product. Installation would have been really easy except the bolt attached to the short tongue (I needed to use the medium tongue) was screwed in so tight I couldn't get it loose. I ended up taking it to a local hardware store for a very big, burly man to use a bolt-cheater to get it undone after he put in quite an effort (I felt validated that it took him some force to get it off). I called customer service about the tight bolt and they offered to send another if I couldn't get it undone. I have a 2008 Wrangler Unlimited soft top and the attachment plate had to go on upside down compared to what the directions say, but that was no problem. Already used it once and it was a tight fit for both of our hybrid bikes, but we managed to get them secured, using additional straps to help cinch the bikes tight during transport. Seems like a great product so far.

Toyota RAV4

I have no quarrels with the product whatsoever. It is built to withstand The Bomb. My bike rides very steady and seems to withstand all road experiences.

Because of the way my bike is built, I had to buy a cross-piece to make it sit level. This piece is VERY heavy and it is all I can do to lift the bike onto the rack. (I am tiny and old.)

If I had to do it over again, I would continue putting the bike in the back of my RAV4 because the frequency of use doesn't warrant my expense.

2012 Jeep Wrangler

It works exactly as described. Fits 2 mountain bikes easily - one of which has a larger frame. Holds everything tight and worry free. We really like the bottle opener accessory too!


I needed a bike rack that won't interfere with towing. This rack is the PERFECT choice! The package arrived in extremely poor condition. I worried parts would be missing but everything was included. I like the locking feature to the tire and they also include a nice locking cable for your bikes.


The mountable bike rack works well. Sometimes getting the hold down straps in place is tricky, but overall this is quite a good rack.

Pontiac Trans Sport Van

I am very satisfied with my Yakima spare tire bike rack. I am able to transport my two bikes without having to install a trailer hitch. The rack is well made, and installed easily.

No complaints. Seems to be a good product
Bob Z - 09/09/2014

Jeep Wrangler

Great rack and pretty easy installation. Secures bikes really well. Very easy to use once you find the ideal configuration for bikes. The directions could definitely use some clarification. A WORD OF ADVICE TO 2007-12 JEEP WRANGLER OWNERS: Based on the stock tire size on the Jeep (P255) the instructions will tell you to use the medium-sized tongue. If you do this, the rack WILL NOT tighten down all the way and will jiggle and rotate on the spare. Use the short tongue that comes pre-installed on the rack system. I had the rack assembled according to the instructions and it was way loose. Had to take it all apart and put back on the short tongue. Other than that setback, assembly was a breeze.

Just got mine today for my 2009 wrangler. It was very loose then I read your post. Thanks for the advice!

Thanks, had the same problem. Good to read your comment prior to disassembling and reassembling...

2015 Jeep Wrangler

The bike rack is great! I mounted it on a 2015 Jeep Wrangler which had the stock Bridgestone tires on it. It was very easy to install. One bike works great. Two bikes are a little more of a challenge to mount but they do fit (both mountain bikes and road bikes). I used product information and installation videos before I purchased the bike rack. I would highly recommend anyone considering buying this rack to do the same. The videos and the tips they provided were very helpful and saved me a lot of time and hassle. Ordering was easy. Shipping was fast. It was a great experience! I highly recommend the product and etrailer!!

2015 Jeep Wrangler

Absolutely Love It !!! I liked it from when I saw it on the website. I paid for the 3 day shipping and it arrived on time. 15 minutes later that baby was on the Jeep Wrangler and ready to rock n roll ! I have 30.50 x 15 tires and required the middle size extension piece. Excellent product! My only advice is Keep the key in the vehicle, don't leave the key w the bike in your garage should you have a flat tire on your Jeep.

Good tip about the KEY!! Thanks . . . The Girlfriend
