MTBR Reviewed the Dr.Tray – and loved it.
Yakima is among the leaders in bike racks in the U.S. with their long history of roof racks and now hitch racks. Very few companies can produce roof racks because of the complexity of attachments that are compatible with the hundreds of vehicles available. But hitch racks have gained popularity among mountain bikers because of their ease of use, improved gas mileage, and less chance of a tired cyclist crashing their bike into their garage door roof.
Yakima has been very successful with their ultra-compact HoldUp rack that’s reviewed here. But for the new platform, they wanted tool free versatility and the ability to handle all tire sizes, including fat bikes. Their new effort is called the Dr. Tray, a two-bike system that’s easily expandable to three.
