Re: Best bike rack for a '14 FJ

I use a 4" drop adapter with my Yakima bike rack. Can open the rear door with down and it has good clearance.
And it clears the spear tire. Once I figure out how to post a pic i will.

Have you considered bike wheel keepers that mount to the hitch rack. That might leave room for a deer if you mount just one bike. You can buy the hardware in pairs.
Where did you find these? Googled bike wheel keepers but can't them. Thanks

Re: Best bike rack for a '14 FJ

I have the Fiamma carry-bike backpack 4x4. They are rear wheel mounted,the bikes sit on a rail and are held via the wheels and a cross bar clamp which is easily articulated for different size bikes. It carrys the bikes up high out of they way and they swing away with the door when you open it. The main reasons we opted for this type of carrier were, Fiamma have a great reputation with huge market presence with spares readily available also we transfer the carrier from the spare wheel of our camper trailer to the back of the FJ when we are away so its perfect for us.
I am not sure about world wide available here is a link to an Australian reseller for reference.

Re: Best bike rack for a '14 FJ

I'm happy with my 1UPUSA rack....I can't fully open the rear hatch with the rack tilted down/bike mounted but enough for me to get to the trunk if I needed but without a bike on and in the titled downward position the rear hatch opens with no issue. What's also nice is that I can go from my road bike to my 29er MTB without making any changes (takes seconds to secure the bike) and it'll expand to 4 bikes if I needed with additional racks. It's pricey to get started with but it's all aluminum (minus the bolts) and its mounted on my FJ from spring to fall with no issues. My only advice is to skip the black anodized one as it tends to turn brown over time.

Re: Best bike rack for a '14 FJ

I use the ROLA Dart Premium folding cargo rack.
https://www.amazon.com/59550-Premium.../dp/B00APY5WTA

It will hold 3 bikes with the optional bike mount adapters.
https://www.amazon.com/ROLA-59904-Bi...8D46ZPKTS2GJ5S

It is costly, but can double as a cargo carrier for deer or coolers, etc. Folds up when not in use. The down side is that it is heavy.

Re: Best bike rack for a '14 FJ

IF you want a lightweight on/off rack that holds two bikes and will allow you to swing out the rear door (with bikes on it) check this out. I have been using mine for several years, even off roading with my bike on it with no problem at all.....
