Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Frontloader from Moosejaw is SUPER! I absolutely love this rack! Moosejaw got it to me super fast, it installed super fast, loading my bike is super fast. Needless to say, I think it's super! I love the fact that the rack can handle a variety of sizes of bikes and the SKS is super easy; even though it costs extra, but the Thule system does too and their install seemed more tedious. I couldn't be happier and just ordered a second one, because it's almost always more fun to ride with a friend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is the best bike cartop hauler if Moosejaw would have sent a complete rack. I already own one Yakima Frontloader and know that it is the easiest cartop bike rack to use. It attaches my 29er, Orbea Lansa, with only touching the bikes tires. No scratched paint. It easily adjusts to 26 inch bikes also and appears to adjust down to 20 inch bike. My suggestion is to buy from a more customer friendly company than Moosejaw. The Frontloader that Moosejaw shipped was incomplete and useless. Their idea to remedy this was to call Yakima to send missing parts. It was very obvious that Frontloader factory box had been opened and bike rack removed and then not repacked correctly before shipping from Moosejaw.

I having trouble finding a rack to fit a 2006 Lexus GS350. Can you suggest a brand/model? Thank you

Asked by: Gaye
Hey there, Gaye! You asked a tricky question, but we're always happy to do some research for our custies. We checked around, and found out that our friends at Yakima have an option for you. They recommend their Q Towers for your base rack: Tower: Q Towers 4 Pack Front Clip/Pad: Q5 Clips Rear Clip/Pad: Q34 Clips Crossbar: Small (48") RoundBar Pair (2 CrossBars) They said that any of their top-of-car bike racks would fit those bars. It's just a matter of whether or not you want to take the front bike wheel off. For wheel-off, you could do either the ForkLift or Highspeed. For leaving the wheel on the bike, you could do the FrontLoader or HighRoad. We hope this helps!

Can anyone tell me if it can mounted in a Thule aeroblade roof rack!

Asked by: Sam41
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to Moosejaw! The Yakima Frontloader will fit crossbars that are up to 4 inches wide. Also, the center to center distance between the bars will need to be 16 to 48 inches.
