Yakima Dr. Tray

Yakima’s new Dr. Tray is designed to accommodate anything from road bikes to fat bikes. All aluminum construction keeps weight to a svelte 34 pounds.

With wheel and tire sizes varying so widely these days, Yakima went back to the drawing board to design what they believe to be the ultimate hitch mounted bike tray rack, the new Dr. Tray. The rack is compatible with wheel sizes from 26 to 29er (and 700c), and able to accommodate tire widths from 23mm road rubber to massive 5-inch fatbike tires.

Flipping the dual QuickChange levers allows for tool free adjustment while bikes are loaded. This helps avoid bike-to-bike contact.

It also offers a host of new features aimed at enhancing the user experience when toting bikes to the trail. The Dr. Tray is available in two hitch sizes, 1.25” and 2” and retails for $579. Press play to learn more.

Squeezing bikes onto trays can often be problematic, especially now with wide bars and boost spacing becoming the norm. The Dr. Tray solves this issue by allowing the user to adjust the spacing of the trays without the use of tools.

Like other Yakima products the Dr. Tray utilizes the SKS lock core system, meaning a single key secures rack and bikes.

Flipping the dual quick releases allow the user to adjust tray spacing and should a third bike tray be required, it can easily be slid on.
