Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Saris Bones Hitch 2-Bike On Vehicle

The Bones Hitch lets you carry 2 bikes on the back of your vehicle. This sturdy steel bike rack has anti-sway cradles, a tilting design, and can fit both 1-1/4" (Class II only) and 2" hitches.


Adjustable Dual Arms

Saris Axis 2 Arms

The Bones Hitch has arched dual arms that ensure optimal ground clearance and provide better bike support than single-arm racks. They are designed to accommodate women's, children's, and alternative bike frames better. The arched design also allows your bikes to hang at different heights to prevent handlebars and pedals from tangling. These injection-molded plastic arms are extremely strong and are constructed of 100-percent recycled materials.


Saris Bones Hitch Arm Adjustment Knobs

The adjustable arms are mounted on a smooth horizontal tube with grooves at each end. To raise or lower an arm, loosen the plastic twist knob and slide the arm off the grooved section and onto the smooth, inner part of the tube. Rotate the arm to the desired position, slide it back onto the grooves, and tighten the knob back down to lock the arm in place.


Saris Bones Hitch 2 Folded Up On Vehicle

The arms also fold down when the rack is not in use.


Soft Cradles and Anti-Sway Straps Keep Bikes Stable

 Saris Bones Hitch AntiSway Cradles

There are 2 soft plastic cradles with dual-molded plastic ratcheting straps that secure your bikes to the rack by the top tube. The lower anti-sway strap pivots to grab your bike's seat tube or down tube to minimize lateral motion, preventing your bikes from hitting each other and your vehicle during transport.


Tilting Mast for Easy Access to Cargo Area

Saris Bones Hitch 2 Tilted Away From Vehicle

The Bones Hitch's mast can be tilted forward when your bikes are unloaded for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. Just pull the yellow handle at the base of the rack to tilt it away from your vehicle, providing clearance to open and close the hatch door. When you return the rack to the upright position, you will hear an audible click to confirm that the mast is locked in place.


Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin and Adapter Sleeve

Saris Bones Hitch 2 Adapter Sleeve and Hitch Pin

The threaded hitch pin helps prevent the rack from moving and rattling around in your vehicle's hitch receiver. And the included aluminum adapter sleeve ensures that the Bones Hitch will fit both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches. An anti-rattle hitch lock (SA3022 - sold separately) and cable lock (SA981 - sold separately) are recommended to deter theft of the rack and your bikes.

The Bones 2 bike rack is perfect for me ! It is easy to put together,very light weight , and the bikes fit well and secure on it . I have a bad shoulders and the other bike rack that I own is a four bike model . It is very heavy and I very seldom take more than another person with me . This Saris model is perfect and it meets al my needs . 390004

We’ve used the bike rack on our Ford Edge several times. Sometimes with 1 bike & sometimes with 3. It’s been easy to use & has held up well. I would recommend it. 617536

Once I watched the Setup Video provided by etrailer.com I was confident in my purchase. Upon receiving my bike rack I spent a few minutes reading the manual and then went out to my garage to install it. It took minutes. After reading the manual I realized that I would require "straps" to keep the front tire in place during transportation. Overall I am happy with my purchase and quick delivery. 145103

THIS PRODUCT SUITS MY NEED FOR WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. HITCH MOUNTING IS VERY LOOSE IN THE FRAME MOUNT. HAD TO MAKE SHIMS TO ADJUST FIT. TILT IS ALSO VERY POORLY MADE. MORE SHIMING INVOLVED TO SECURE BETTER. COULD USE A STRAP TO HOLD FRONT TIRE TO UPRIGHT POLE. I HAD TO USE A NUMBER OF VELCRO STRAPPING TO MAKE ALL ADJUSMENTS. BOTTOM LINE.. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.. 425960

I like the bike rack; but the rack seems to be made more for bikes with cross bars; my wife's bike does not have one and its a challenge loading her bike securely to the straps on the rack. I also wish there was a quick disconnect of the rack from the hitch. The rack comes with a threaded bolt, nut and cotter pin. I also purchased the security lock that locks onto the threaded bolt. However I don't keep my rack on the car all the time. When I reach my destination by car I take the rack off and lock it into my trunk. Threading and unthreading the bolt is time consuming; A quick discount to and from the hitch would be ideal for those times I lock the rack in my trunk; which is most of the time. 268259


Comments
I still feel the same about what I wrote a year ago. The only difference is I dont take the rack off my car as much. I like the rack overall. The difficulty of loading my wifes bike with no cross bar is still a challenge.
Courtland G - 07/10/2017

Thanks for the follow up. For easier loading of your wife's bike I recommend using an adapter bar like part # SA3040. This adapter will allow you to load her bike easily and safely.

Very study and solid product. Easy to install and pull down when accessing the trunk. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because it is a bit tricky to get the newer thicker middled mountain bikes inside the straps. 797044

I’m very pleased. The rack is very well made and exactly what I needed for my Volvo XC 90. Also liked that it was easy to set up. I’m 72 and like “easy”! 495890

Seems like a good product so far. Easy installation. However I don’t like the plastic screws for the rack arms. The first rack I received was damaged due to poor packaging. The plastic screw was easily broken during shipment. However etrailer was very efficient and accommodating. They readily resolved the problem. They sent me a new rack immediately. Lastly, the bike sways a lot. You will need a cable to stabilize the front wheel. 446780

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


Nothing but good things to say. Minimal setup time. The product is extremely well made, easy to use and rugged. It was strong and light and very easy to install. Also after shopping around, it turned out to be very reasonally priced. Last but not least, it is made in the USA so I can be proud to own it. I would not install anything else on my Chevy truck. Thank you Saris for such a high quality product, I will certainly recommend it to my other bike riding buddies. 613816

I like this rack. It's solid, and with a little practice it's reasonably easy to take bikes on and off the rack (and the rack on and off the car). It fits comfortably on my 2012 Subaru Forester. 721324

Holds 3 light bikes comfortably. Adjusting semi rigid straps a bit difficult for me, depending on angle. Hitch rattles some tho I imagine it needs this amount of "give." Recommded by a friend I trust. 366583

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


The Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier is a great product. It took some maneuvering to get the right hold on my 2002 E39 BMW, but it sits and rides well. The product is well designed and should hold up for a long time. My only concern was the feet might rub on the paint, but the rubber endings do a good job of preventing that. I tie the excess ribbon from the straps to additionally secure the bike's wheels and pedals, but I'm also going to get some Velcro straps to keep them from flapping at high speeds. Great Product. 196400

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


This has turned out to be a superb product. After pulling it out of the box, I was a little concerned about how long it would take to attach to my CRV. Turns out, it didn't take long at all. I have a 2015 Honda CRV, with a spoiler, and I was able to attach it and not have a problem. I have to lift the tailgate to attach the lower clips, but it connects just fine. I'll give it a test on the road this weekend with a 3 hour drive, but I'm pretty confident it'll do the job. Very pleased with the purchase. 254736

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


The item was shipped within minutes after the order was placed online. (Thanks etrailer.) When the bike carrier arrived and I took it out of the box, admittedly I was a little intimidated by all the straps, etc. But after looking it over and reading the instructions, it was a snap to assemble, mostly because of the large and clear-to-understand images. The Saris Bones 2 bike rack with optional hatch hugger straps fits my 2016 Honda CR-V snugly and exactly as advertised. I'm very satisfied and ready to ride. 235601

Arrived in just 2days. Product seems to be sturdy and well made. I installed onto my 14 Chrysler 200 in just a few mins. I did put tape on the hooks so it didn’t scratch my trunk . I put two bikes a full size hybrid mountain/road bike and my sons bmx bike. It worked great would recommend to any one needing a bike carrier. 560593

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


I love it! What an amazingly clever design. It feels solid on my Honda 2008 CRV and looks very smart. The materials are of excellent quality and well made. I feel very confident this happy purchase will carry my grandkids 3 mountain, bikes as designed safely with features easy for use. It was a breeze to attach to my vehicle and not heavy and awkward with my arthritic granny hands. Watching the video for my CRV helped install quickly. Questions with customer service were handled with courteous, friendly, helpful speed. It was a pleasure doing business with this most professional, responsive company. Sorry no photo. Will supply later if you still want? 539228

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


While getting a bike rack for a sports car isn't ideal, I really wanted to transfer my bike with my own car instead of borrowing my friend's pickup truck. After hours of trying to find a bike rack that would be good for my 07 Mustang, I decided to give this one a try and I gotta say, it has been pretty good so far. It fits very well over the factory spoiler. One of my biggest concerns I was worried about when ordering a rack for my Mustang was ruining the paint, but the feet on the legs haven't left one scratch. I have used this to transfer my bike at freeway speeds (up to 80 mph) on car rides that typically last an hour and my bike was perfectly secure throughout each ride. For extra security, I wrapped both bike wheels with a ratchet strap so the wheels and pedals wouldn't shift in transit. So far, I am very pleased with this bike rack for the price and quality. I would highly recommend this if you want a rack that is affordable and durable. 694044

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


Purchased this Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack approximately one year ago. It continues to work perfectly for my needs (transporting one or two high-end road bikes). Bikes have been transported for thousands of miles without issue. The vertical piece on the rack can occasionally become slightly loose at the bottom, but cab easily be tightened with an appropriately sized socket and hex wrench. 565789

Ask the Experts about this Saris Hitch Bike Racks

  • Does Saris Bones Hitch Bike Rack Attach to Trailer Hitch or Ball Mount
    The Saris Bones Hitch 2 Bike Rack # SA882 installs directly to a trailer hitch and would not need a ball mount at all. Since there is sometimes confusion on which part is the "hitch" and which is the ball mount I attached a picture of this bike rack installed in a hitch plus a review video for you to check out. If you need a hitch for your 2011 Mazda CX-7 you'd want the Draw Tite part # 75512 which is a confirmed fit.

  • Storing the Saris Bones Hitch Rack in Garage
    The arms of the Saris Bones Hitch 2 Bike Rack # SA882 fold down to make it a bit easier to store. Looking at your picture it would probably be best to put the rack in the right corner of the garage floor with the shank pointed at the rear of the garage. We don't really have a great way to hang the rack on your wall so it might just be easiest to have it in the corner on the ground leaning on the right wall with the arms folded down.

  • Can Rhino-Rack 2-Bike Rack be Locked

  • Is Adapter Available to Carry Childrens 16 Inch Bike with Kuat Sherpa
    Even with Wheel Adapter, # PN2024, the smallest bike that can be carried on the Kuat Sherpa, # SH22G or the Kuat NV, # NV22G, is a 20 inch bike so this rack would not work for the 16 inch kid's bike. Good news is I do have a solution. Take a look at the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 2, # HR1000Z.

  • Bike Carrying Options on Keystone Passport Travel Trailer
    Most of the photos I've seen of the Keystone Passport show a rear-mounted spare tire that would interfere with mounting a bike rack in a rear mounted hitch. If you don't have a spare tire, the Curt # 13703 would work for you. A rack mounted on the rear of a trailer will be subjected to more bouncing and jarring that it would were it mounted on a passenger vehicle, so you'd be want to be sure to use a bike rack that's rated for use on the rear of a trailer, as not all are.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2017 Mazda 3 Hatchback
    First, for your 2017 Mazda 3 hatchback, you will need a trailer hitch. I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24914 because it does not have any special requirements like the Curt option does. For a bike rack the Kuat Transfer # TS02G, is a popular option. It holds the bikes at the wheels so it is compatible with many bike styles. The U-shaped rack frame makes loading and unloading the bikes easier. I have included a link to a video review of this rack for you. If you prefer the hanging...

  • Which Hitch Lock Fits Shank of Saris Bones Hitch Bike Rack
    The Saris hitch lock part # SA3022 and the # 63147 are totally different hitch locks/anti-rattle devices. The part # 63147 is designed to fit hollow shank accessories and the # SA3022 is designed to fit shanks that are threaded. For the Saris Bones # SA882 that fits trailer hitches it would require the # SA3022.

    I looked at the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24908 that you have installed on your 2017 Mazda 6 and compared that to the Thule Apex 2 Bike Rack part # TH9024XT. The opening of the hitch which is 1-1/4" and size of the shank which is also 1-1/4" will fit into one another however, the folding mechanism of the rack has the potential to interfere with the rear bumper due to the recessed hitch pin hole. Therefore, I do not recommend using this rack on your vehicle. Instead,...

  • Best Bike Rack for a BMW 3 Series?
    The Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack, Part # SA883, is an good choice for the BMW 3-Series. It is capable of holding less than 3 bikes. Given that the BMW 3-Series only has Class I hitches, if you go this route, I would recommend keeping the bikes in the closest two positions to the rack to decrease the amount of stress put on the shank of the rack. A third bike will cause leverage to be applied to the shank and make it bend, damaging the rack. If you'd rather not take the risk, I'd recommend...
