Replacement Cradles for the Yakima Ridgeback


Will these fit a Yakima Ridgeback Rack? I am trying to decide between these and the original style ratchet down style that broke.


Expert Reply:

I have a solution for you, but the Replacement Cradle Set for Yakima DoubleDown Hitch Mounted Bike Carriers # Y8890177 is only designed to work with hanging racks with 1-1/4" diameter arm tubes; the Yakima Ridgeback # Y02458 has 1-1/8" arms. The replacement cradles that fit the Yakima Ridgeback are the Replacement SuperCush Cradles # 8880597 which are the original ratcheting style cradles that came with the Yakima Ridgeback models produced after 2016.

If you have an older model Ridgeback, you can measure the diameter of your tubes to determine which one is going to provide the best fit.
