Typical superior Saris quality. These adapter rods are build like tanks and work exactly as expected. Highly recommended if you have odd shaped bikes that can't be mounted on a bike rack.

Excellent product for use in the bike rack. Great service by etrailer.

It is a great addition, however, I realized that I could have used my bike rack without it too. It definitely adds ease to the process though.

Item we ordered was back-ordered and they very quickly communicated this to us and provided us alternatives. Shipping was quick, too. Overall excellent shopping experience. Would definitely purchase through etrailer.com again!

Easy to use. I haven't used them while in transit yet. Makes the bikes easier to lift. I still can't get my daughters bike to fit but the problem is more the bike rake itself and not the beam. Looking forward to using them. I would recommend.

I purchased this bike rack for my wife and I. It is very well made and easy to install. I had it unpackaged and on my vehicle within 30 minutes. Ongoing removal and installation only takes me about 5 minutes. I purchased the Saris Beam Bike Frame Adapter for my wife's bike to make it easy to put her bike on the rack. I highly recommend it for transporting a woman's bike. Overall I've found this bike rack and adapter to be great products.

Bought Saris Bones 2 bike carrier for our new Honda CR-V to take our bikes to Florida for the winter. Also a support bar for my woman's bike. Received them in two days! Was really impressed not only with the speed of delivery, the quality of the product but also the email follow ups. Watched the etrailer instruction video on line which was most helpful.

Ask the Experts about this Saris Accessories and Parts

  • Is Saris Adapter Bar # SA3004 Spring Loaded?
    The Saris Bike Beam Bike Frame Adapter Bar # SA3040 uses a telescoping arm that locks into place to provide a mounting point for hanging style bike racks. Since it only needs to attach to the bike frame and is secured by the straps of the bike rack, you don't need any built-in tension or bungee cords to provide support. We do not offer any bike frame adapter bars that use spring loaded arms.

  • Weight Capacity for Bike Frame Adapter Bar SA3040
    The weight capacity for the # SA3040 is 35 lbs which is the standard weight capacity for these adapter bars. It's also the same capacity as nearly all hanging bike racks as well. If you needed a higher weight capacity you'd need a platform style bike rack like the # SA4025F which has a capacity of 60 lb per bike.

  • Is Saris Bike Beam Frame Adapter Compatible With Electra Townie With Step Through Frame
    Yes, the Saris Bike Beam Bike Frame Adapter Bar # SA3040 will work to carry the Electra Townie with step through frame on the Yakima KingJoe 3. You will need to lift the seat of the townie all the way up to give the bar space to hook to, the other side hooks to the handle bar stem and gives the bike a horizontal bar to hang from.

  • How To Use Saris Trunk Mount Bike Rack with Women's Bike
    In order to use a women's bikes on the Saris Trunk Mount Bike Rack you'll need an adapter which is what allows the bikes to be carrier level since there is no horizontal cross tube to attach to. The Saris Bike Beam Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # SA3040 is what I recommend. I have emailed you a link as well which lists all the manuals for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks.

  • Trunk-Mount Bike Rack Fit For a 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    There is a really nice option for a trunk-mounted bike rack that is a fit for your 2020 Subaru Crosstrek, which is from Saris: - Saris Bones 2-Bike Rack - Trunk Mount # SA805BL The Bones is one of the nicest options for a trunk-mounted rack because it offers a great value; it is more economical than similar options without sacrificing anything in terms of quality. There aren't any 1-bike trunk-mounted racks so you will need to go with a 2-bike rack but the Bones will work great with...

  • Recommended Replacement for Reese Q-Slot 4-Bike Rack
    I checked with the manufacturer and there are no replacement frame hooks for the Reese Q-Slot Platform-Style 2-Bike and 4-Bike Rack PS63138 so the best option is going to be a replacement rack. The most economical option is going to be a hanging rack, and for that I recommend the Thule Camber 4-Bike Rack # TH9056 because of its combination of ease of use and durability. It will allow you to simply place your bikes on the arms strap them down, and comes with a lifetime warranty. The...

  • Trunk Bike Rack for 2010 Honda Fit Sport with Spoiler
    I do have a great option for your car, however the Thule Passage 2 Bike Rack is not a confirmed fit for the Honda Fit Sport. I can recommend another similar bike rack, the Saris Bones EX 3 Bike Rack # SA803. The Saris Bones EX 2 would also fit your car, but we only have the 3-bike version of the EX series. This bike rack is designed for more compatibility with other types of cars and spoilers. It has similar features to the Thule Passage, but I personally really like how the Saris with...

  • Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Bike with 20 inches Between Seat Post and Steering Stem

  • Can I Use the Inno Hang Over 4 on a Class I Hitch?
    The Inno Vertical Hang 4 # INH540 is compatible with Class I hitches, but it's not good to put more than two bikes on a Class I hitch. It's not about the weight but more of the distance and angle that the third and more bikes sit at will overburden the hitch. In these cases, I usually recommend a trunk-mounted bike rack, but the maximum they're built for is 3 bikes like the Yakima HalfBack 3 # Y02635. You could pair the trunk mounted bike rack with a roof mounted bike rack like # 298-BT1004...

The Saris Bones EX 3 Bike Rack # SA803 is confirmed to fit your 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback. This is a high quality bike rack that has soft ratcheting straps to secure your bike without scratching or scuffing the bike frame. While this bike rack claims to work for most women's bikes and alternative frame bikes, you still may want to look into an adapter bar. The # SA3040...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack For 76lb E-Bike With 53 Wheel Base
    Since your Radwagon Electric Bike with a 53" wheel base weighs in at just over 76lbs I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HLY84FR which has a weight capacity of 80lbs per bike and works with wheelbases up to 60". Since your E-bike has a alternative frame style you will need to use Adapter # S57FR if from the seat post to the handle bars is 25" - 31", or the # SA3040 if this distance is 19" - 25".

  • Can Rhino-Rack 2-Bike Rack be Locked
    The Rhino-Rack Hitch Lock # RRRBCA025 is not compatible with the Rhino-Rack 2 Bike Rack # RRRBC045; the best way to secure this rack is to use Cable Lock # e98891 and wrap it around the bike rack and the safety chain loops on your trailer hitch. There is a great option for a quality economical 2-bike hanging bike rack that you can lock, the Saris Bones 2-Bike Rack # SA882. This rack has arched arms to increase ground clearance, can tilt to make accessing your rear cargo area easer, folds...

  • Which Trunk-Mounted Bike Rack Should I Use On My 2021 Subaru Forester?
    The Yakima Half Back 3 Bike Strap Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # Y02635 and Saris Bones EX 3 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # SA803 will both work for your 2021 Subaru Forester without any issues. While both are excellent options, I would go with the Saris Bones. The Saris Bones has more customer reviews stating that it worked very well on their Subaru Forester. The Yakima will work just fine, but there is not as much customer feedback on this rack. Another thing...

The Bones has adjustable arms with anti-sway straps that keep your bikes stable during transport and will be able to carry 2 mountain bikes without issue.

    I do have a solution for you. While the Thule Raceway PRO 3-Bike Rack # TH9002PRO is not a confirmed fit for your 2011 Lexus RX 350. My recommendation would be the Saris Bones EX 3 Bike Rack # SA803. This rack is sturdy, capable of carrying 3 bikes at 35 lbs each and yet is still lightweight at 11 lbs which makes mounting to your Lexus easier. Saris provides a limited lifetime warranty as well so they stand behind their product quality. If you're transporting kids or alternative...

    The Saris Bones bike racks, like part # SA805BL, are confirmed to fit your 2015 Audi A3 and are decent bike racks if you are looking for something affordable. If you are wanting a really good bike rack for expensive bikes then I recommend installing a trailer hitch on your newer 2015 Audi A3 and using a hitch mount bike rack to avoid bike rack to vehicle contact, plus most of the hitch mount bike racks have more to offer.
