Bike Racks Done Right

Leave it to an Oregonian designer to come up with such a great bike-rack design.  The Yakima Super Joe Pro and King Joe Pro by James Owen are this years top-of-the-line racks.  High-clearance design met with ultra soft cushioning ensure your car is never comes in contact with your bikes. These racks are highly adaptable thanks to Yakima’s QuickTrigger Hub system- trust me, attachment easy as pie.

    Nice and detailed. I would have put the supports a bit further appart. Although the top support isn't carrying the weight of the bikes, If you hit a bump it might break your rear windshield.

    wont this put a lot of pressure on the car door glass? as 2 of its feet are pushing the glass
    awesome design!

  • I do like to buy it but how much ???

  • jose says:

    That is perfect for a traffic fine.

    I dont know if its allowed to cover the lights or the plate in other countries. I know that in spain is an expensive bill.

    Great design, but full of flaws, pressure on the glass, not good at all, plus, a design that covers the license plate is a no go, like jose said, you will get billed heavily if try to cover your license plate around europe, but that to me seems comon sense, dont understand how this got unnoticed…

    nice rack !!
    this is awesome !!
    It doesn't put pressure , I've used one of this type , the car windows ca support like 60 pounds , thats like 5 bikes , this is really good and functional!

  • arturo says:

    besides
    if it puts any pressure is in the lower part , not in the glass part … beacause you know gravity !!

  • Scott says:

    and when you hit the brakes the bike swings into the car (like other designs). What have you done to accomodate womens bikes with a dropped top tube?

  • My biggest complaint is that it doesn't look like the rack part with the straps can fold down with the support body. I ride my bike a lot and when I try to pass a car with a bike rack, it is quite scary because it sticks out a good foot from the rear bumper to accommodate the bikes, but when not in use it would be best if it could fold away with some locking mechanism.

    you can't cover up your license plate like that… fail.
