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.

  • How Can I Carry A Carbon Frame Bike And A Bike With Fenders On My Car
    We recently had a the Saris representative on-site and one of my questions was about carrying bikes with fenders on a hitch bike rack with carbon framed bikes. He relayed his own experience with the same problem. He said the Saris MHS Modular Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Tilting, part # SAR73MR, will work with a carbon framed bike and a bike with rear fenders by clamping the wheels and not the frame. This rack may interfere with bikes with front fenders. I have included a product...

  • Wheel Mount 2 Bike Rack for a 2022 Airstream Atlas Class B Motorhome
    I have another option for you but the Saris MHS Modular Bike Rack # SAR73MR is not rated for use on any type of trailer or RV including class B motorhomes. For a bike rack that is rated for use on your 2022 Airstream Atlas and also a wheel mount style like the Saris you were looking at we have the Swagman Semi 2.0 Bike Rack # S64686. This isn't the modular style the Saris is, but it will hold the bikes by the wheels instead of the frame. The Swagman Semi 2.0 Bike Rack # S64686 can carry...

  • Is There A Platform Hitch Bike Rack That Includes A Ramp And Is Compatible With A Bike With Fenders
    You are correct. The Saris MHS Modular Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Tilting, part # SAR73MR, will not work with your wife's Blix Aveny because the rear fender will interfere with the racks arms. Another reason it will not work is because it is not compatible with travel-trailers. However, the Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount, part # Y36FR, is compatible with travel trailers. It also comes with a ramp to help you load the heavier ebike.

  • Recommended Hitch Bike Rack For My 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
    I have two hitch bike racks I recommend, depending on the bikes you will be carrying on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. My first recommendation is the Saris MHS Modular Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Tilting, part # SAR73MR. This hitch bike rack has a maximum weight limit of 60 lbs per bike. It is fender friendly, provided your front fender does not extend past the 2 o' clock position of your front wheel. My second recommendation is the The Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2 Bikes...
