Pivoting Upright Arms with Adjustable Bridges

Saris MHS pivoting upright arms

The MHS has pivoting upright arms that grab your bikes firmly by the wheel, so it won't scratch or scuff the paint. These upright arms allow you to rapidly load and unload your bikes. Simply set your bikes onto the trays and pivot the upright arms against the tires. Ratchets hold the arms in place, so once you squeeze the arms against the wheels there's nothing left to do. To unload your bikes, press in the gray lever on each arm to release the ratchets and raise the arms up.

Saris MHS pivoting upright arms

Each arm has a bridge that is pre-marked for various bike tire sizes to ensure a perfect fit. To adjust, simply remove the pin, slide the bridge to the indicated tire size, and re-insert the pin.

Grooved Wheel Trays

Saris MHS wheel traycable locks

The MHS doesn't have cradles for the wheels like many platform-style bike racks have. Instead, it has wheel trays with grooves that accommodate narrow 18c road bike tires up to 5.0" fat bike tires. A wheel chock at the front of each tray prevents your bike from rolling, and a sliding ratchet strap on each tray adds extra security so your rear wheel doesn't bounce while you're driving.

Front-Mounted Handle for Easy Tilting and Folding

Saris MHS front-mounted hand levercable locks

The rack tilts down with your bikes loaded. So, whether you're at the trail or the grocery store, you don't have to remove your bikes to access your cargo area. It also folds up when not in use. This leaves a smaller footprint, so you can keep the rack on your vehicle to park in your garage. And if you want to remove it, it doesn't take up as much space to store it.

Saris MHS folded away from vehicle

To make tilting and folding easier, the MHS's release lever is mounted on the front of the rack. This means you won't have to reach through or around your bikes with one hand to reach the lever, while supporting the rack's weight with the other, when lowering the rack. Instead, you'll be able to hold the rack with both hands the entire time.

Complete Security

Saris MHS loaded on vehiclecable locks

The rack includes a threaded hitch pin that serves as an anti-wobble device to eliminate rattle in the hitch receiver during transport. A lock on the hitch pin secures the rack to your vehicle. It also includes integrated cable locks that thread around your bikes' frames and insert into the locks that slide along the cables. The cables store inside the wheel trays when not in use. The locks are keyed alike, so you only need to use 1 key.

E-trailer was great, rack showed up on time. Just know this thing is massive. It came in 4 large boxes. But was very easy to put together and understand. Have yet to use it as it is a Family Christmas Present. We have 3 big E-bikes so this is one of the only racks we could find that worked. E trailer was easy to work with!! Let hope for the best!!


Delivery time from date of purchase to actual shipping was a stretch of time but kept me posted.Arrival of package was in great shape.Super job guys

  • Weight Capacity of Kuat Transfer V2 3-Bike Rack
    No, the 40 lb per-bike capacity of the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # KU24FR means you have to stay at 40 lbs per bike. It does not have a 120 lb total weight capacity, only a per-bike capacity. If you wanted to put two 60 lb bikes on a 3-bike rack, you would need the Saris MHS Modular Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # SAR35MR.

  • 4-Bike Platform Bike Rack that Can Carry E-Bike and Work Behind RV
    At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. So, the RockyMounts rack you referenced was not rated for the...

  • Recommendation For Carrying 3 Bikes Behind a 2009 Honda Fit Sport Hatchback
    First you are going to want to have a EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7286 installed on your 2009 Honda Fit Sport. As you mentioned you are not very handy you can use the link I put near the bottom of the page to search for installers near you.

You should also have them install a 4-Way # C56011 as you will most likely need to run Auxiliary Lights # C53201 behind the bike rack. I recommend...

  • Is There a Loading Ramp Add-On for the Saris MHS Modular Bike Rack
    I have an alternative solution for you but as of right now (July 2022) Saris hasn't come out with a loading ramp for the MHS modular bike rack. For a wheel-mount bike rack that has an add-on ramp available we have the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # BA22B-BA02B which is compatible with the Access Ramp # ANVBRB but the weight capacity is reduced to 40 lbs per bike with the 4-bike setup. The Kuat NV 2.0 Base is definitely a solid choice in a bike rack but the MHS is a specialty...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Tandem Bike on 2016 Ram 2500
    Thank you for the information. I see that your Buddy Bike Sport is 43 lbs and has a wheel base of 58.1 inches. For your 2016 Ram 2500, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65063 which has a 500 lb vertical load capacity. The Curt # C31015 is only a fit for 4WD models and has the 500 lb vertical load. The Draw-Tite option does not require fascia trimming and will also give you better ground clearance. This will allow you to use the Hollywood...
