Does Yakima BackRoad 2 Bike Rack # YA64FR Have Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin


does yakima backroad 11/4 hitch 2 bike rack have positive tightening of rack to hitch?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the hitch pin of the Yakima BackRoad 2 Bike Rack # YA64FR is threaded so it will tighten to the hitch tube on your vehicle and remove play and rattle. This is typically referred to as an "anti-rattle hitch pin." Based on this feature and the tighter clearances of the moving parts on the rack it would be a very quiet and stable rack on the road.

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.
