Can Yakima SpareRide 2 Bike Rack be Adjusted for Offset Spare Tire  


Hi, I notice that the product pictures differ from the three pictures of the product mounted to the White Honda CR-V. I need to adjust the product for the offset spare tire on my 2005 Honda CRV as in the picture with the white CRV. Does the rack adjust to accomodate the offset tire? The product on the Honda CRV looks slightly different. Thanks

I do have a solution for you, however the Yakima SpareRide 2 Bike Rack # Y02599 cannot be adjusted for offset spare tires. The customer image referred to in your question shows an older model of this bike rack.

I recommend looking at the Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack # TH963PRO. This carrier will hold up to 2 bikes at 35 pounds each and is designed to fit any vehicle with factory rear-mounted spare tires. The rack can be repositioned to center your bikes on vehicles like yours with offset spare tires. Locks are also included to secure the rack to the vehicle and your bikes to the rack.

I have attached a video review on this bike rack for you to check out.

If you plan on carrying any children's, woman's or alternative frame bikes, you may also need an adapter bar like the Kuat # UB01. This will provide a horizontal attachment point for level transport and improved ground clearance. I have attached a demonstration video on this product so you can see exactly how it works and why it might be needed.
