Size of Replacement SuperCush Cradle for Yakima Racks


I have a larger bike on a Yakima hanging style bike rack. The bars on my rack are 1-1/4inch and the frame of the bike is 2-1/8. Will this accommodate both my rack and my bike?


Expert Reply:

The replacement SuperCush Cradle, part # 8880598 will work with the bars on your rack, however, you may have some trouble with the actual cradle. I measured the width available and there is only about 2 inches of width that the SuperCush and ZipStrip can handle, so you may need to use an adapter bar like part # 64005 to carry the bike with the rack.

The adapter bar will connect under the seat and handlebars to give the bike an alternate contact point that will fit into the rack's cradles.

If you don't already have a locking solution, I recommend a cable lock like part # e98891 to add security to your rack. Either way, make sure that you are connecting to the bike's frame and not the adapter bar when securing the bike.
