Video Transcript for Saris Bones Trunk Mount 2 Bike Rack Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Saris Bone trunk mounted, two-bike rack, in gray, part number SA805. This bike rack is also available in black, part number SA805BL. The arms and supports of the bike rack are made of 100% recycled material that is super strong and durable, and is rust-proof. The feet, here at the top and bottom of the bike rack are a soft rubber, so they won't damage your vehicles finish, as well as the rubber coated hooks, which are at the top, the side, and the bottom are also going to help protect your cars finish.The cradle straps here on the inside have a soft material to help protect your bikes finish. The straps are also ratcheting to further secure your bike to the rack.

The bike rack is also equipped with two anti-sway cradles, which is going to help prevent your bike from swaying while you're travelling down the road, and to come in contact with the other bike. This bike rack is made in the U.S.A. and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we've gone over some of the special features, we'll go ahead and show you how to install it. We'll first begin by placing the carrier up unto the upper tier of the rear bumper. We then need to loosen up this black dial at the top, which will allow us to swing the arm over up to the place where there's no grooves, and allows us to swing this arm up.

Then we'll make sure the bike rack is centered. We'll kind of get a feel of where this arm needs to be, and then we'll slide it back over in these grooves, then we'll tighten down that black knob, which is going to secure this arm in position. Now with all of our strap ends tied, the rubber coated hooks are labeled. This thick, fat one here it's going to go up to the top. This thinner one here is going to go at the side, and the skinnier one is going to go at the bottom.

This is designed to help you get up under the bottom of the hatch or the trunk. Now, we'll go ahead and put all these clips in place.Once we kind of get them in place, we'll just tighten down the straps just a little bit. This is going to help us give us support to hold the bike rack which we finish installing all the other straps. The vehicle that we have does have a tread plate here on the back of our bumper, so at times you may need to open up your trunk or your hatch to get this bottom clip in place. Then, we'll just repeat the same process for the other side. Now, one thing to keep in mind about trunk mounted bike racks is that depending on your application, your rear windshield wiper may not be used.

Now, with everything all tightened down and secured, we'll just go ahead and secure our excess strap. Next, we're going to go ahead and swing out our cradle arms. To do this, we'll loosen up these black knobs here, which is going to allow us to slide the arm off of this set of grooves, and swing the arm out. Keep in mind, the arms do need to be level or slightly angled up. Then we will just tighten down that black knob, and repeat the same process for the other side, making sure that the cradle arms are level. Now, with the bike rack installed, we'll go ahead and show you how to load up a bike. We'll first need to push in these buttons here, and undo our cradle straps. We'll then take our bike and place it into the frame cradles, and then we'll secure it with the straps. We'll bring the anti-sway strap around the vertical post of the bike and secure it. Again, this is going to help the bike from swaying back and forth, and coming in contact with the other bike. With that done, we'll then secure the other two straps around the top part of the frame. Then we'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the other bike. Now, with our bikes all loaded up, we'll go ahead and take it out for at test-drive to show you how it looks driving down the road. And that will complete todays review of the Saris Bones trunk mounted two-bike rack in gray, part number SA805.

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

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. 375956

Carrier is good buy for bikes with narrow or limited suspension space to put on bike carrier. Goes on easy with quick setup. No metal parts to touch car. Only drawbacks: 1. Antisway straps don’t cinch down enough to prevent bike sway when in motion. 2. Cinch straps are somewhat difficult to loosen when taking bike off carrier. 512539

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. 328873

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

The 2-bike SUV carrier 2 model is a sturdy, easy to use product. However, it is made for male bikes only, and using the top bar on the male bike is crucial to using this carrier. My wife's bike does not have this top rail, making it difficult to mount both bikes. This distinction was not mentioned in the advertising information 242378

So far so good but I haven't used them that much. We are using them on a Honda CRV (in combination with a bike rack we also purchased from here); it's a little awkward setting the system up but once it's in place they work great. It may be me, but we needed to use these on the bottom of the hatch not the top as indicated but we made it work. Secures nicely. We drove from New England to South Carolina without a single problem. Actually the only problem was the rear wiper on the car that apparently won't shut off and got snagged on the rack itself. Otherwise 100% happy with the product - can't fault the product for the car issues. 418762

This is quite a nifty rack for a quite small car (I have a Mazda3). It even folds down and fits in the small trunk of my car. Initially I was worried it would be time-consuming to take it out, set it up etc but it's pretty quick and the straps are labelled. I worry a bit if I would try to take 2 bikes on a long trip involving freeway. While it is "pretty" solid, obviously you don't want bikes coming loose at 70 mph. The other real frustration, and it's not just hypothetical, is the stupid cheapo plastic roll straps that cinch the bike tightly to the rack. They simply don't work as intended, very hard to explain, but look at the rack photo. See the circular straps. They have teeth on them and a side button that should allow you to tighten or release the teeth. But that whole apparatus is quite flimsy and the button doesn't work. Bike shop, kids, everyone notices this flaw. Otherwise, and despite the strap, I'd buy it again- it does what I need it to do. 468164

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

It took a little while to get the arms where they needed to be and straps for the first time to make sure it was secure. But now that we have it set we just put it on tighten the straps and off we go! It's amazing and sturdy a little pricey but it's worth the money, I don't feel like our 2 bikes will fall off. I love It! Just make sure u get a bar adjuster for women's bikes or kids. Etrailer is the way to go, free shipping and it was here in 3 days! 398506

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

Fits well on my 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Nice, well protected strap clamps for my mountain bike. I really like the two additional stabilizing clamps for the bike to prevent swaying. Light and strong rack. No rust possibility either. Bike holder extensions swing out of the way easily allowing garage door closure without removing rack. 609197

Beats an $800 hitch. Sturdy and easy to assemble after you have fit it to your car the first time. Fits a 2016 Honda CR-V perfectly. It's true that you won't be able to use your rear wiper, but I don't usually cycle in the rain anyhow. The available online videos are the best way to do your initial fitting. 538799

I used it on my 08 Saturn Vue (a small SUV with a spoiler, which seemed to be problematic for some other bike racks) to carry my bike from AZ to IL. I was careful to make sure I didn't go over 80 mph, per the manufacturers instructions. Worked like a charm. 514173

Review from a similar Saris Bones in Trunk 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

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

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

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

Review from a similar Saris Bones in Trunk Bike Racks


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.

Review from a similar Saris Bones in Trunk Bike Racks


Used the Saris today for the first time. My previous carrier was a Yakama that slips into the trailer hitch. The Saris is a big improvement in my opinion. I hauled my one to the American River bike trail. There was. O swaying or movement when turning or going over speed bumps. The bike is easy to fasten to and remove from the rack. Once the bike is removed, I loosened the top and side straps and it was easy to remove and reattach. I recommend this carrier over any other carriers I have used. 369536

Review from a similar Saris Bones in Trunk Bike Racks


We use the SA801 rack on our 2016 Honda CRV. It fits well, stays secure and is relatively easy to install. The straps that hold the bikes onto the rack are a different story. They are hard to insert into the buckles due to the stiffness of the strap and buckle. We basically gave up using them and went to bungees. Perhaps we are missing something here. I would still buy another one and recommend it to others, but the tie-downs could be re-thought. Pete & Karen Brown 453918

  • Can you Open the Trunk when the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier is Installed on a Mazda CX-5
  • If you need truck access often, I have a solution for you, but bike rack manufacturers do not recommend opening the rear hatch or trunk with a bike rack installed. The door hinges are not designed to hold the extra weight and the rear door could come down on whoever is underneath. There is also a chance that the bike rack could fall off and scratch the paint. If you need to access the trunk often, I suggest a hitch mounted bike rack which can fold down, giving you access to open the...

  • Saris Bones 2 vs Saris Sentinel 2 for Honda Civic 2011 or 2012
  • The Saris Bones bike rack part # SA805BL that you referenced is the top of the line trunk mounted bike rack that Saris makes.
