I'm looking at a couple different Yakima rack options. The King Cobra looks good. I like not having to take off the front wheel. Just load and go. My Subaru has a low roof, so it's easy to get up there. Yakima also makes another model that allows you to keep the front wheel on, but I don't really want anything gripping my frame.
The other one that I'm checking out is the Viper.
My main question is if the tray locks to the rack on the King Cobra like the Viper does. I don't want someone being able to just bypass the cable lock on the King Cobra by unbolting it from my rack. Anyone have any opinions either way on these two? I'm looking at Yakima b/c I can get them cheap. Thanks.
