How far apart are the cradles on the Ridgeback?
The cradles on the Yakima Ridgeback are spaced 5 1/2" apart.
Is the HandCuff locking cable for the RidgeBack worth it over a standard bike cable from a bike shop?
As a theft deterrent they are pretty similar as they are both cables after all. However we believe the HandCuff locking cable has some convenience benefits that improve the experience of using a locking cable with this rack. For starters, the HandCuff is installed fairly easily into the mast of the bike rack, once it's there it's always with you when you need it. No need to pull the bikes off the rack to access the cargo area of the vehicle and grab a cable. Just pull out the cable from the rack, route it through the frames of each bike, and into to the arm of the bike rack. Then use the exact same key as your bike rack uses thanks to Yakima's Same Key System (SKS) and your bikes are secure.
