Can Yakima FullSwing Bike Rack Be Used to Transport only 2 Bikes


My needs are only for two bikes at the most - does the Fullswing have an option of a shorter arm for not as many bikes? And is this the right rack for and E350 Mercedes wagon where the trunk opens up like a hatch /SUV? And thank you!


Expert Reply:

The swing away bike racks like the Yakima FullSwing part # Y02465 are only available in 4 bike configurations. You can easily only carry 2 bikes with this rack though. The extra room would only make loading your 2 bikes a bit easier. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
