    Yakima Raptor question

    I can't seem to stop my front tire to stop wobbling back and forth while on the rack at highway speeds. I've tried the bungee thing but it doesn't work. Does anyone know how to keep the front tire from wobbling so much?

    are you using the TWO wheelstraps you get with the Raptor...one for the front tire, one for the rear?

    Mine doesn't wobble at all...I just tighten both straps down as tight as possible, and tighten the knob as tight as possible. I've driven quite fast and for considerable distances with no problems on my Raptor racks. If I were you, I'd double check all the install bolts and make sure everything is tightened down.

    Yes I'm using both straps on the rack. It may be that it's a 29er, I don't know. It's annoying to look up through the sunroof and see the tire wobbling but it works. I'm thinking about selling it on CL and buying the Cobra, I think that will solve the problem.
