Yakima StickUp 2 Hitch Bike Rack Review – 2012 Ford Edge – etrailer.com


Today on our 2012 Ford Edge, we’ll be test
fitting the Yakima StickUp 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Bike Rack for both 1-1/4 and 2-inch
hitches, part number Y02420. Now to begin our test fit, we’ll simply slide
the bike rack shank into the hitch, line up the hitch pin hole, and install and tighten
down our anti-rattle bolt. And with the bolt tight, our bike rack is
secured to the vehicle. We’ll now go ahead and give you a few measurements. Our ground clearance at the bike rack is 11
inches and from the closest point of the bike rack to the back of the vehicle is 2 inches. We’ll now go ahead and unfold the bike rack
platform and open our cargo door. And as you can se, we can gain full access
to the cargo area, opening the door completely with this bike. Now, to load our bike, we’ll need to bring
the vertical bar up on our bike rack. We’ll pull the pin, brign the bar up, and
allow the pin to lock the bar in place. We’ll then need to make sure that our top
bar clamp is fully extended and that our wheel loop strap is undone and out of the way. We can then place the bike into the bike rack
and bring out top bar clamp down over the top bar of our bike.
