Description

Rear-mounted spare tires make changing out a flat easy, but they get in the way of most hitch-mounted bike racks. You can't exactly leave your wheel behind, but you can put it to good use with the Yakima SpareJoe Bike Rack. This innovative, affordable Yakima Bike Rack connects to your spare, dishing up the ideal platform for carrying up to 2 bicycles.

Whether you've got a standard spare or a paddle-tread mud bogger, the Yakima SpareJoe Bike Rack adjusts to fit nearly any spare tire. Even if your spare is offset mounted, you can fine-tune the fit of your SpareJoe, making it right in the center.

Strength and stability are the cornerstones of the Yakima SpareJoe Bike Rack design. For superhero-grade muscle, Yakima built the SpareJoe from bomber steel. One its arms, you'll find anti-sway cradles to keep your 2-wheelers firmly planted in their seat. What's more, the arms fold flush against your spare tire when not in use. Lifetime Warranty.

I purchased the Yakima SpareJoe Bike Rack as a replacement for another brand I had for 15 years which finally rusted out. I am very disappointed with the Yakima in that it has Velcro fasteners. My old rack had rubber fasteners that really held my bike in place. I certainly can't trust velcro to do that. I removed the velcro fasteners and replaced them with the rubber strap fasteners from my old rack. It also was a hassle adjusting the rack for a center tire.

Pleased with 1st choice

This is the 1st carrier we've purchased and am very happy with it. It took the weight of our two Schwinn Sidewinder Mountain bikes, which aren't light, with ease. It mounted to our 01 Tracker spare with no trouble. The service from AutoAnything was outstanding. Thanks, R & V

this bike rack fits well on my suzuki grand vitara. the bike doesnt extend past either side of the car. it sits low enough to not interfer with the view from the rear view mirror. it is easy to fold down the arms when not carrying a bike. i recommend locking the rack thru the spare tire (since the cover needs to be off) and then onto the bike when it is on.

Easy to install, though a little big for my Honda 2000 CR-V. Seems secure for 2 bikes. Haven't tried it yet but will soon.

Good for the price.

Nice small unit and a good buy. It should have more adjustments to fit any spare tire though. Easy to put on but doesn't fit most of the newer bikes with slanted cross bars. I felt the cost was very fair but would spend more money next time to get a heavier duty unit that I can lok on the spare. Service from Autoanything was great will use ther service again. Stan
