Will Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack Work With Lowstep EBike


I am considering the bike carrier listed below for my forester: Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes Am concerned it wont work with my bike, a trek verve+2, which has a low step frame. If this carrier wont work, can you recommend another? Thanks. And thanks for taking the trouble of producing all those videos, have been very helpful over the years. Really excellent customer service! I dont know of anyone else, in any field, who goes to the trouble.

First, thanks so much for the nice words, they are really appreciated. And I have good news for you as your Trek Verve+2 Lowstep bike is absolutely compatible with the OnRamp, which is the following part number:

- Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches # Y36FR

The reason why is the OnRamp's clamps can secure a bike by its seat post (so it doesn't need a top crosstube), and can be adjusted up and down as well as turned from side-to-side so your bike doesn't have to be positioned directly next to the clamps.

So you'll definitely be able to use the OnRamp # Y36FR with your Lowstep bike without issue, and this is a really nice choice for a rack as it is will be easy to load your bike via the ramp. The only other thing I wanted to mention is that while the rack does come with a cable lock for your bikes, if you want to also add a hitch lock you need the Yakima HitchLock # Y07235.
