The bungee cord, twine, and tape system you've devised to attach two bikes to the roof of your car really is pretty ingenious, but the hourlong setup and tear-down might be cutting into your ride time, you know' It's probably better to upgrade to Yakima's TwoTimer Hitch Rack, which is way easier to use, sleeker, and more secure. The security comes from the two ratchet straps, one of which secures each wheel, and the padded arm in the middle that locks in over your top tube to keep your rig secure at highway speeds and over back road bumps. This holds true regardless of your discipline of choice; the wide trays of the TwoTimer carry road bikes, trail bikes, DH sleds, cruisers, and even fat bikes (although these need special ratchet straps to secure the wheels). Versatility is the name of the TwoTimer's game. Not only does it carry pretty much any bike, but it fits both 1. 25in and 2in hitch receivers, and it locks in place with Yakima's Single Key System. You can swap out lock cores for any other Yakima offering, too, if you want all your racks and roof boxes to operate on a one-key system. Need access to the hatch' All good, because the TwoTimer folds down even when it's loaded, so you can get at the snacks, and it folds up when empty, so you don't accidentally back it into your friend's truck when you roll up to the trailhead. There's also an integrated bottle opener, so a post-ride cold one is always easy to enjoy.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
