How Much Movement Will Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Rack Have During Travel


Can you please tell me how much does the Yakima Fourtimer wobble up and down and side to side? I have ready/seen video of some people having concerns with the vertical movement of the Fourtimer. Before I purchase something at this price point I want to make sure it will be very, very stable. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

The Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Rack # Y02469 referenced in your question is a really nice carrier that can support 4 bikes of up to 45 pounds each. I have attached a test course video on this bike rack that you can take a look at. As you can see in the video, even with 4 bikes loaded, the carrier experiences very little movement when going over speed bumps and making turns.

This rack does have a really stable connection at the hitch during travel, as it includes a couple components designed specifically for this purpose. The anti-rattle hitch lock will not only secure the carrier to your vehicle to help deter theft, but the threaded pin will also drastically reduce movement inside the hitch receiver. The carrier also features 2 stabilizing straps that will be used to secure the bikes to prevent any further movement.
