The Yakima WheelHouse universal front tire wheel holder is used to carry the front wheel of your bike on your roof rack when your bike is being carried in a fork mount bike rack. The Yakima WheelHouse utilizes the SpinVice Clamps to fit on nearly any crossbar on the market including Yakima, Thule, Whispbar, and most factory installed crossbar systems. The WheelHouse is compatible with wheel sizes up to 29" in diameter and up to 3" in width.
Double retention system
The WheelHouse features a double retention system which holds your wheel by the axle and also by the rim. A single ZipStrip is also used to keep your wheel from spinning while travelling.
Folds down when not in use
Once you have removed your wheel from the WheelHouse you can fold the carrier down so that it does not stick up as high when not in use.
Universal mounting hardware
The WheelHouse uses SpinVice clamps to attach to nearly any crossbar option including Yakima RoundBars, Thule square bars, aero style bars, and most factory installed crossbars.
