Does the Yakima Frontloader Fit on My Crossbars?  


will the yakima frontloader bike rack work with my brightlines crossbars for my 2019 honda crv?


Expert Reply:

Yes, your Brightlines crossbars on your 2019 Honda CR-V are similar in shape and design although a little bit smaller than the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425. This means the clamps will fit around your crossbars. It also looks like the Brightlines has a T-track system in the middle.

Have you considered getting the Yakima HighRoad Bike Rack # Y02114 instead? It has more of a weight and wheel capacity. It also uses the newer TorqueRight knob to secure your bike. The Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 is also a great and slightly lighter bike rack which is ideal if you're looking for simplicity. However, since they both have such a similar design and function, I recommend the HighRoad # Y02114 due to its more modern features. Like how you can mount it to crossbars with T-tracks using the T-slot mounting kit # Y02122.

Either way, both bike racks are compatible with your Brightlines crossbars on your 2019 Honda CR-V, just make sure they have the correct crossbar spread. The Yakima HighRoad # Y02114, for example, requires a spread of 18" - 36."
