Blue-blooded royalty are used to opulent handling, and your bicycle deserves the same. For the most regal way to move your 2-wheelers around town, equip your ride with the Yakima KingJoe Bike Rack. This crown jewel in Yakima’s trunk-mount lineup delivers the best padding, the fastest installation, and the most compact storage.
Like a plush throne, the Yakima KingJoe Bike Rack’s feet are triple padded for maximum cushioning on your ride’s finish. Even the metal buckles have a thick layer of padding to safeguard your paintjob from scratches. And, the 6 straps ensure your KingJoe won’t shift while you drive.
Mounting the Yakima KingJoe Bike Rack is a breeze. It’s crowned with a QuickTrigger Hub that lets you dial in the perfect tension. The StableCradles grip your cycles securely for a wobble-free ride, and the narrow arms work with the widest range of bike frames.
When the ride is over, the KingJoe Bike Rack’s arms fold down for easier storage. And, you can pick between a 2-bike and 3-bike carrier—both come with a Lifetime Warranty.

I got this rake to assist my son in transporting his racing bike to triathlons. It took a few times to get used to install the rake on my car. Once I got used to it, its now a breeze to use. We are now planning to getting a SuperJoe for my son's can.

Just used my King Joe 3 bike rack for the first time. Brought our bikes to the beach (approx. 200 miles) on the back of our 2005 Malibu. Must admit I was a little nervous about it when we started out on our trip, but the King Joe came through like a champ. Still have the return trip to do but I'm not near as anxious about it now. I give it a thumbs up!

Installing the rack the first time required two persons because the straps were flopping all over the place. However, once the right tensions were achieved the rack snuggly held the bike to the car. This style rack is not as easy to use as the other bike rack that I have that fits into the trailer hitch receiver on my mini-van, but compared to other racks of similar design that I have used, the Yakima KingJoe rack is by far the best I've seen. I would highly recommend it if you don't have a trailer hitch installed on your car.

Sadly I have to return this item because it will not fit my vehicle (after reading the "fit guide" that came with the rack). I'm very disappointed because this site said it would indeed fit.
