The Yakima FrontLoader is the simpler and slimmer sibling of the HighRoller bike rack that BikeRadar recently reviewed. Many of the features that we loved with the HighRoller can be found in the FrontLoader, which wraps them up into an even simpler design.
The FrontLoader holds the bike by its wheels and nothing else. A two-part brace wedges the front wheel, which in turn keeps the bike upright. The rear wheel then straps in place for additional security.
The benefit of this rack style is that no matter what frame design, material, axle style or delicate paintwork the bike has, carrying it in the FrontLoader will never be a problem.
