Customer Reviews – Yakima HighRoller Rooftop Upright Bike Rack
Yakima HighRoller Bike Rack – I love this bike rack. It is easy to use. Before buying this i did a lot of looking online. I saw reviews that said that their bike moved around a lot and it looked unsafe etc. I am happy to report i have no such issues. I have a road bike with 700×23 tires. It holds my road bike in place perfectly. The only movement i can see is with the truck and no the bike its self.
That being said i was kind of disappointed when i went to try and install this. I had to buy the Yakima might mounts. These where not recommend thus i did not even think about it. The picture also lead me to believe that the mounts that came with it where the might mounts. This is not the case and i had to buy the $40 add on mounts. Also something to think about. This rack does not come with the SKS lock cores. If you want to be able to lock the bike rack to your cross bars and lock the bike to the rack you have to buy these. I was very disappointed that i had to pay a good amount for this rack, the “high end one” and it does not include these things. I will buy another one of these. I guess i know for next time.
Great Bike Rack, – Works great. Easy to mount and un mount bike. Great rack and worth the money. Wait for 20% off sales for Yakima products which a least one seller has every other month.
Excellent!! – After reading reviews on this rack from various websites, I decided to give it a try. This may not be the cheapest rack for your bike, but considering the price of a nice mountain bike, it is well worth it.
Nothing beats arriving to the trails and only taking 5 minutes to get the bike off my roof and gearing up for the ride.
The high roller keeps the bike very secure to the yakima roof rack system.
My only concern is that if someone knows how one of these works, it is fairly simple to steal it right off the top of your car.
Great rack – I have two High Rollers mounted on Yakima round bars in my 4-door sedan. For some additional safety, I purchased and installed lock cores on the bars as well as on the High Roller racks (to secure the bike to the rack) and accessory lock housings to secure the rack to the bars.
* It is easy to put the bikes on and to remove them
* The rack does not touch the bike frame
* The rack itself is easy to install and remove when you do not need it.
* As with any bike roof rack, you lose clearance. I have to place and remove the bikes from the rack outside my garage.
* With the bikes on top, in windy conditions on the highway, you can feel the car buffeted by the wind.
* If the bikes I carry were any heavier, I would be in trouble… luckily, my load consists of lightweight road bikes. To put a bike on the rack, I grab it by the seat tube and the fork (to be able to direct the front wheel).
* If I was shorter (I’m 5’7″), it would be much harder to place the bikes on the rack.
* Placing and removing smaller bikes (say a 48cm road bike) can be tricky sometimes due to the clearance between the front wheel and the crank set.
I wish there was some sort of cover for the front end of the bikes (bugs get stuck to them), but it is a sharp an sturdy solution if you do not have a hitch.
