        Comments about Yakima SpareTime Bike Spare Tire Carrier:

        This was purchased just before a recent road trip. Did 25+ hours of highway and city driving without any problems.
        Sturdy construction, easy installation (less than half an hour; plan on getting your hands a little dirty), and easy to use. Bikes can be locked in place with included cable lock (or other lock), which is a convenient feature. Carries two bikes.
        So far, I'm happy with the purchase and have no complaints.
        BTW, I have it mounted on a 2005 Honda CRV. The product has an offset feature, since not all spare tires are centered on the vehicle. This helps, although the carrier is still a bit off-center, but not enough to matter.

          The installing was so incredibly easy. I did not understand how the bottle opener worked, but not a big deal.

            Comments about Yakima SpareTime Bike Spare Tire Carrier:

            Instructions were idiot-proof, installed in a flash. The only thing I'd suggest is that if you are installing this on a spare tire mounted to your tailgate (I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler) just remember to close the tailgate when putting the spare back on!

            Great bike rack!

              • Q:

                What is the width of the carrier arms? I need to know it will fit in the width of my cross tube on my smaller bike. Thule definately does not fit, too wide.

                  You would have to remove the cover of the tire to use this set up.
