Easy and quick to load bikes. Holds bikes securely.Was looking for a bike carrier that my wife could load her bike by herself. This one definitely does the job. It is easy to load and keeps the bikes separated so they don't bang into one another like my other bike carrier allowed them to do You don't have to worry about the peddles banging into your spokes. It also locks the carrier to your vehicle and the bikes to the carrier so you don't need extra cable locks. Great job Yakima!!!

Spend the extra $75 and get Kuat NV 2All of my friends have the Kuat NV 2 and it is literally the best hitch mount rack out there. In terms of both features and QUALITY. I have been impressed with Yakima (whispbar) products in the past and based on the features of the Holdup I decided it was a good choice and it had everything I wanted that the Kuat has. Installation was easy and straightforward. I am not going to go over what I like about it since I like everything. It is the quality I have an issue with. The paint job is terrible if you look around you will find a lot of under spray. The under spray is so bad in some areas that it will rust very quickly. The rack to hitch connection is bomber, however at the pivot point of the rack where it rotates up and down is total crap. The hole where the pin locks into is way to big, in both the down and up position. It is so bad that i get a 1/3 inch of play! I took the rack for a ride with my bikes on it and the noise and wobble were unbearable! The bikes were bouncing! Refund?
