Sure, you can pull apart your bike to squeeze it in the trunk, or sling it over the back of your pickup truck. The Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack 2in, however, makes it easy to transport your bike, in one piece. The HoldUp fits into a standard 2in hitch receiver. It sits low so that not only is it easy to load, but it also hides behind your car, helping to maximize fuel mileage. It holds virtually any bike, with the exception of tandems or recumbents, from 20 to 29inch wheels. The HoldUp comes ready to cradle two bikes, but may be grown to a four bike carrier with an optional add on. An included six foot SKS security cable deters theft while you run into the store for post ride suds, and an included bottle opener makes opening those brews a snap.
