Frequently asked questions

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for? Reach out to our customer support team.

I have two FrontLoader bike racks on my roof rack currently, but when I try to load my mountain bikes the the handlebars make contact with each other and I am not able to load one of the bikes properly. Is it safe to mount the rack backwards and carry a bike with the rear of the bike facing the front of my vehicle?
There should be no problem mounting the rack backwards and transporting the bike in that position. This is a more common issue than you might think with the wider bars found on modern mountain bikes. Many owners of roof mounted bike trays mount them backwards to squeeze a third bike on the roof.
Is the cable lock on the FrontLoader usable without purchasing Yakima Lock Cores?
Without the Yakima SKS Lock Cores the lockable cable on the FrontLoader doesn't have much purpose unfortunately. It certainly is possible to route the cable through the frame of your bike, but it wouldn't offer any security without a lock inserted to engage the mechanism in the cable.
