Yakima FrontLoader Roof Bike Rack Review – 2012 GMC Terrain – etrailer.com


On our 2012 GMC Terrain we’ll be test fitting
the Yakima FrontLoader Wheel Mount Bike Carrier, part number Y02103. Our vehicle is already equipped with the crossbars
and our bike rack is preassembled so we’re ready to go ahead and fit it to the vehicle. To begin, we’ll set the head of the bike rack
over the front cross bar. We’ll then bring the rear mount of the bike
rack to the rear crossbar and secure it. After securing it to the rear crossbar we’ll
move back to the front crossbar and using the wing nut on the head of the bike rack
we’ll tighten it down to the front crossbar. That now secures our bike rack to the roof
of the vehicle. We’ll now prepare the bike rack to load a
bike. We’ll raise the front hoop forward and open
up the rear tire strap. We can then set our bike on top of the bike
rack and roll it forward so that the front tire rear hoop comes in contact with the tire. We’ll then tighten down the red knob just
behind the front tire to secure the bike to the bike rack. We can then move to the back tire and run
the tire strap through tightening it down.
