Hitch mount Bike Racks from Yakima for your MINI Cooper with a Hitch Receiver.  Most will fit both 1.25" and 2" receivers.

Choose from different styles and budget.

The LiteRider and Ridgeback are the standard frame mount bike rack (fits 1.25" and 2" receivers).  It is easier for bikes with the horizontal frame between the handle bars and seat post - not 'required', but it makes it easier.  If your bike doesan't have the horizontal bar, the Yakima Tube Top will make it easier to mount the bikes.

The Holdup (fits 1.25" only) and TwoTimer (fits 1.25" and 2" receivers) are 'tray type' bike racks where you simply set the bike on the trays.  These are MUCH easier to load and remove the bikes, taking less than a minute per bike.  The Bikes on these holders are supported by vertical supports that swing up and lock onto the tires - 'no touch' on the frames!

If you need to add a hitch on your Mini, see our Mini Cooper Hitch Application Guide.

Glass Hatch Hooks are alternative straps for trunk mounted bike racks where standard hooks cannot be used.  One Pair.

The standard straps have a hook at the end that catches the edge of the rear hatch or trunk.  In some cases, the angle of the hook or the gap between the hatch / trunk and body is inadequate to securely hold the hook.  In these cases, these Glass Hatch Hooks can be used where you feed the strap thru the gap from the inside of the rear / trunk and let the barrell become the anchor.

Question:
Do you sell a hitch that would fit a 2017 MINI Cooper Clubman JCW? Hitches I have found elsewhere for the 2017 MINI Cooper Clubman specifically say that they do not fit the JCW model.
Answer:
The Hitch for the F54 MINI Cooper Clubman will fit the JCW model fine.
Here is a note from the installation instructions:

"As there a few versions of the rear bumper used on the F54 model your rear bumper may look different AND the location of the square hitch cover plug may be a slightly different place depending on if your MINI is a base model, S model or JCW."

Question:
I have a Cannondale ebike and I wanted to know which bike rack would be the best fit for this type of bike??
Answer:
Not knowing anything about that bike itself, we want to take into consideration the weight and style of the bike.
A hitch mount option like THESE is likely the best available as they can typically take up to 60lb bikes and the hitch itself will handle up to 200lbs. This, of course, requires the installation of a hitch - you can see the available options for those HERE

Question:
Could these "Glass Hatch Hooks" solve the r55 Clubman issue with trunk-mounted bike racks? Could I mount a regular bike rack on the barn doors with these straps?
Answer:
Hello,

Yakima says none of their trunk mount bike racks are compatible with the barn doors on the R55 Clubman.

I think the issue is trying to attach the upper, lower, and side hooks to the barn doors at the same time. I suppose it may be 'technically' possible to attach the rack if you removed the straps from the rack, taped them to the doors and closed the doors, you might be able to attach the rack to the straps (not something we have tried)...  But there may also be a safety issue that I am not aware of.. So we have to follow the manufacturer's recommendation and say it is NOT compatible.

We suggest the hitch with a hitch mount bike rack or go with the roof rack solution.

Question:
Hello. I'm looking at the Gen3 Mini Cooper (2014 F56 2-door, hatchback) bike rack: G3NMA1180 and the Yakima G3NMA1194 TwoTimer bike rack My bike is a fat tire (4") e-bike: the RadRunner5. With the battery it weighs 70 lb. Would either of these work?
Answer:
Do you currently have a hitch on your 2014 F56 Hardtop? The G3NMA1194 rack will only work if you have the hitch. I believe the photo on the product page shows a 'fat tire' bike on this rack.

The G3NMA1180 bike rack mounting system should work with your ebike, neither the Raptor Aero or the Front loader is compatible with the 'fat tire' bike...

If you get the hitch and this Dr Tray rack, that would work for your ebike.
