It has been pretty stable when using the Saris Bones 2. A little bit of a learning curve to use, but once you understand, it is very easy to use. It is very well made and I am very happy with the quality of service from

Thank you Patrick, It is still working well. Bought a new car and it fits on it nicely. It is still rugged and sturdy. Thank you for your quality service!

It is well designed, relatively intuitive (the installation videos on their webs site are a great help), and very stable when mounted on our car (We have a Volvo station wagon). I wish it had better strap management. When mounted on our car, there are four long lengths of unused strap that need to be coiled and stored so that don't flap around. I don't want to cut off the spare strap lengths because that would preclude using it mounted on a conventional trunk.

Yes. It is simpler and easier to use than the roof rack I had been using. However, my grandson’s mountain bike has a curved down tube, leaving a very narrow space between the top tube and the down tube at the steering tube, making it difficult to get onto my Saris carrier.

This product works very well and is solid. The first couple of times I used it, especially the first, it was complicated to figure out. But now I really enjoy how it folds up pretty small to fit in my trunk. I recommend it.

Still good!

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.

Still holds on to my bike and stays on my car just as well as it did the day I bought it. Would still recommend today.

Clears the spoiler and keeps the bikes away from the car. I am totally thrilled that I bought this bike carrier.

The rack has not faded and is working perfectly. Im very pleased with this unit!

Not a secure bike rack for an Audi A5. The first was too loose to use.

This should fit the Convertible and Coupe 2018 Audi A5. The straps are made to tighten up against your trunk and the rubberize metal clips, clip into the trunk jam.

Disappointed in this bikerack. I got it specifically for my Prius, as the curved frame fits over the spoiler. Unfortunately there is no where on the trunk or frame of the card where the side straps can attach. The top strap and bottom ones fit tightly but without the tension of these side straps the bike rack will not stay evenly on the car. Almost lost my bike on several occasions After lots of gerryrigging, I discovered if I quickly slammed the trunk with the side straps hanging loosely in the trunk, I should catch the straps and tighten them. This seems to work. Also no matter how hard I tighten it, the center arm (which lies against the rear window) does not stay in place, but slides off center. The rack works fine, with lots of gerryrigging. But should be easier to use given the price. Also be aware, that if your Prius has a rear view camera, this will have to be disengaged eveeytime you back up with the bike rack and bike in place, or your car will automatically brake if you try to backup.

I reached out to Saris who advised that the Saris Bones EX part # SAR83FR
Saris Bones EX 2 Bike Rack - Adjustable Arms - Trunk Mount
would be a better fit on your 2018 Toyota Prius with the factory spoiler. It has a greater curved design that allows more room to accommodate the spoiler.

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.

by: Leahne05/10/2021

The bike rack is sturdy~ to reduce “sway”, be sure to secure all of the clamps as securely as possible~

It’s been WONDERFUL AND NO ISSUES AT ALL!! I was nervous at first putting in 2 bikes and driving down the highway, but this rack is SOLID and I still love it- even after owning it for a year!!

I have been using the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack Trunk Mount for a year now. It is so easy to use. It takes just minutes to put in on my car and load the bikes on. I'm very happy with this purchase.

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!

by: Joe07/02/2020

Bike rack fits just right on my 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback. Took a little longer for shipment with COVID but the staff at etrailer stayed in touch with updates on shipment and let me know of its status. I would recommend the rack and etrailer.

by: Lauren 11/04/2022

this is a very easy to use, solid bike rack. Up to this point I've only used it for one bike, but I'm sure it provides good support for two if needed.

by: Anna08/02/2022

I like it because it fits my car (2020 Toyota Camry Hybrid), which my old one didn't. However, in using it several times, I do have a few suggestions for a version two. I wish it were a bit lighter and folded up more easily for storage in my car trunk. I also wish that the pads resting on the bumper were a bit narrower because they get caught against the trunk and then the trunk won't close. Finally, the straps are a bit long. If they could somehow be made retractable, that would be better.

by: David M.12/13/2020

Just a follow-up message to an earlier review. Beautiful, warm December day; finally had a chance to take the bikes to a county park. The rack worked great!

by: Sigrid11/04/2021

I have used the Saris Bone 2 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms a few times. It was a little confusing initially to figure out where the arms and straps attach but, like anything else, the more I used it, the easier it got. The bike fits securely and I don't have to through the expense of getting a bike rack.

2015 Honda CR-V

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.

Could not be more pleased with it.

2018 Ford Edge

I like the light weight and manageable size of this rack. It was a little confusing right out of the box but I had it figured out in a few minutes.
I have a 2018 Honda CRV and was concerned that the bumper is not as deep as most other vehicles - the rack legs stuck out over the edge. Also the "hooks" on the side straps kept sliding up and coming off. I used a 1/2" cork squeezed into the hatch "seam" on each side above the hooks to keep them from sliding. (therefore no 5th star)
I drove 60 miles day one and everything worked out fine!

The Saris bones 2 bike rack is working great on my 2018 Honda CRV. It fits snugly to the car with no bumps or rattles. Easy to attach and is light weight.

The illustrated only instructions were a bit vague. Was resent same instructions when asked for technical assistance with detailed questions and photos. Item was shipped with 3 side straps and 1 bottom strap versus 2 of each. I am working on a solution to resolve this with distributor, but now under a time crunch due to need for a trip

Look no further. Can’t wait to hit the open road this summer.

by: B08/12/2021

The rack doesn’t seem as a stable as it should be. I only use it locally as I’m concerned about what would happen when driving at highway speed. Every time after driving the bottom strap comes off even though I’ve tightened everything several times beforehand. It’s unfortunate bc this was the only rack I can find that’s “compatible” with my truck. I also don’t like that there’s no lock feature. I often wonder if it’ll be stolen after my bike ride.

Thank you for the review! I reached out to the manufacturer and they suggested trying to tighten up that strap that keeps giving you trouble after you have loaded up your bike or bikes as the weight from the bikes may create some slack and cause the strap to slip. I hope this helps!

  • What are the Differences Between the Malone Hanger and the Saris Bones?
  • One of the largest differences between the Malone Hanger # MPG2139 and the Saris Bones #SA805BL is that the Hanger can carry up to 3 bikes versus the 2 bike capacity of the bones. The Hanger also includes CAM buckle straps that are better quality than the nylon straps on the Bones. Lastly, the Hanger also comes with a security cable lock that is missing from the Bones.

The carrier works fine on larger (adult) sized bikes, but 20" kids bikes barely fit on the forks due to their spacing and their large plastic saddles and straps, and they only fit on the outermost saddles. This is probably true of most fork-type carriers, but customers need to be aware that the carrier won't fit more than one 20" bike on it. In general, I 'm happy with the carrier. One other note, after mounting it on the car and loading the bikes on it, retighten the straps holding it to the vehicle, and stop and do so again after driving a few miles, as they stretch a little under initial load.

Still very satisfied! I have several different vehicles and it is easily adjusted to mount on each of them as needed.

Excellent and prompt customer service!
I first ordered my product it wasn’t in stock— staff were quick to let me know and offered me comparable products.
I ended up waiting for my original order and shipping quick and they stayed in touch with ideas!
Thule: The instructions
could be a little more detailed. I ended up watching YouTube videos to help me instal.
Overall it was easy, and this was the first rack I’ve ever installed and I did it by myself!
I was surprised to learn the bike rack is in no way secured inside your vehicle, so.. I store it in my garage when it’s on.

I wish that the bar that secures “female” bikes was included. I also ended up spraying the metal clips with rubberized spray because it will scratch where it contacts. I transport a very heavy e-bike mostly, I’ve been extraordinarily happy with its performance, price, and it’s easy on, easy off style. Often recommend.

I purchased this for my son to be able to transport his bicycle to and from college with his Ford Taurus sedan. It was just what we needed and provided safe and durable transport. This email is in response to etrailer's follow-up one year after purchase. I really appreciate the concern their customer support puts forth in making sure the customer is pleased and well cared for. I would highly recommend this product!

by: Alexandra07/28/2021

My Thule bike rack has worked well over the past year mounted on my Hyundai Elantra GT. Pretty easy to mount whenever I need it, and I do appreciate how the carry arms can be folded down. I will say, however, that as a woman rider it is extremely annoying how bike racks are only made for grown men. So women and children are left struggling. I only use my rack for me and my kid, and it is super challenging to load the bikes onto the arms (and an adapter works for my bike but not for a kid's bike).

by: Michael J06/17/2020

The product is well thought
out and works for a wide range of automotive vehicles. It comes with interesting dampers that i think work.
Instructions seem to be translated from another language, but are quite good, accompanying pictures make installation straightforward.
A test drive over speed bumps shows that the rack will support the bike for all travel needs. It can be disassembled , collapsed and stored in the trunk.
The rack is made for the classic triangular shaped frame: horizontal cross bar, "male" bike. For bikes without the horizontal bar, mounting is a little less satisfactory. Such a bike can only be mounted on the outside mounts. Cannot use the damper on one side. Picture shows the mounting.

as to a design solution, maybe brackets could be replaced with smaller profile, some adjustability? however, as it is, vibration control is good and adjustability with smaller profile would have vibration concerns.

Hanging style bike racks like the Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier and others like them do require the use of an adapter bar like part 64005 to properly hang bikes with slanted cross tubes. The adapter bar gives the bike a horizontal surface to hang from.

2015 Ford Edge

Ordered online, it shipped the same day. Received it 3 days later. There is a little assembly, but, pretty simple. It took me less than 15 minutes to install and no tools were needed. It is adjustable to be used on many different auto types, but, the instructions were very clear about how to adjust it to fit my 2011 Ford Edge.

I have used it twice so far to transport my bike. There are a couple of items that are inherent in the design, not a flaw, but, you need to be aware of them. First, you can't use rear window wipers. Second, the back-up alarm goes nuts because it registers a bike less than 6 inches behind you (I tolerate it for the few seconds it takes to back out of my driveway or out of a parking lot). Third, there is a little flexibility, it is held on with straps and clamps, not bolts, so, it bounces a little when you go over bumps or make sharp turns, however, it holds the bike fast to the frame and stays on the car. I use mine to transport my bike on short trips around town to bike trails. On a long trip I would suggest checking that the straps remain tight from time to time during the drive.

I have a 2013 Edge. Have you had any problems with the rear spoiler. I am scared it might crack or get damaged. Any problems or concerns since you have been using the rack? Thanks,Bryan

I am thoroughly impressed. My chosen product was out of stock when I ordered it. Someone immediately contacted me with options, with a no pressure option of just waiting for my chosen rack. I just received it yesterday and it's great. I got the Thule Passage II and it's a perfect fit for my Buick Encore. It took 10 or 15 minutes to install and it's very stable.

One year update! Still loving this. Its super stable on my trips from long island up to the adirondacks and hasnt failed me yet. The straps hooks are still practically new and the rubber clampy strap things are still super tight. I never worry that my bike is going to be loose. Well put it this way- if I had to buy another bike rack, Id buy the exact same one and Id Def purchase again from etrailer.

This bike rack fits well on my 2016 Nissan Altima. It is very difficult to fit two my two mountain bikes on it at the same time. The bike mounts on the rack are to close together making it a struggle to get both bikes mounted securely.

I recommend looking into using a bike adapter bar as it can allow the bikes to hang more evenly giving more room between the bikes.

2017 Buick Encore

After a bad experience with a previous bike rack in high winds (not a Thule), we were very leery about bike racks. This one passes every test! We live in a state with high winds- this rack weathered 50+ mile wind gusts with ease. It was easily installed on our Buick Encore-VERY pleased with this rack! I have no qualms about taking this bike anywhere we go! Thanks!

by: Sebastian S.09/04/2017

Outstanding bike rack for the price. Clear setup manual, parts do not feel cheap, works exactly like it is supposed to. Put my bike on it, did not even hear a sound of parts struggling keep up the weight. No squealing, no scratching noise at all. One thing to look for is when you tighten the straps with no bike on, make sure you tighten the side and bottom ones again after you place the bike on, as they will come loose as top straps will be holding all the weight. And be ready to sacrifice using your rear wiper since you will not be able to. One thing I wish it came with would be some kind of small Velcro fasteners to secure the loose ends of the straps with. But I just did with duck tape, works just fine, too. Also, outstanding customer service from etrailer folks!

Excellent quality. Easy assembly with clear instructions. Stable attachment to vehicle. The bike(s) are secure on the rack.

The Thule Trunk Bike Rack installs like a charm. Being a solo, senior woman, the installation was challenging the first time, but isn't everything the first time. This bike rack gives me more options to enjoy nature and the outdoors in my area.

by: Melissa09/04/2022

Out of the box, this rack looks and feels very sturdy. Assembly is pretty straightforward and the instructions are clear. The buttons you depress to swing the arms down for storage can be a little tough to manage, but the process is quick and simple. Unfortunately, this rack did not work for the geometry of my XS road bike. The arms are fixed and my frame could not fit over the cradle that supports the bike near the head tube. Adding a top tube adapter would not have resolved the issue (it would have resulted in an even tighter angle than the original frame). This seems like a solid product, but probably only suited for 'average' and larger size bikes. Ended up going with another brand rack that was adjustable and offered more versatility for smaller framed bikes.

by: Andrew 08/13/2021

Easy to set up. Works perfectly. I chose this model because the design of my car only allows this "trunk" type of rack. I worried that it wouldn't be as sturdy or secure, but it's great. Even with two bikes, visibility out the rear is still fine. I have no complaints at all!

It’s about a year later and my Thule bike rack is still in perfect condition, perfect working order. I have no hesitation in recommending it. Again!

Fits my 2014 Prius well. I used an e-bike for it and it handled the weight well. I took the battery off to help. The one thing that bothered me is the rubber straps seem to come off a little too easy. Other than that it's great and holding on to it for regular bikes.

by: Lauren 09/06/2022

Easy to put on and off the car after you assemble it and put it on the car the first time. Easy to fit two bikes at a time and the straps fit snuggly, which makes me feel confident that they'll stay attached and not bounce around unecessarily.

by: db09/02/2022

Fits my 2018gti well. Extra care with the straps is always wise with these types of carriers, but I've not had any problems. I do take the rear wiper off just in case. I've only used it with 1 bike. I'm not sure how I'd feel about two on it, but that's just me.

by: Phil L.05/17/2016

I had no problem with the installation as the instructions were clear and easy to folow. After simple bike loading and quiet road testing at speed with the bike installed, I am happy with the carreir. The Thule is a quality product. Thank you for your prompt service.

by: John01/19/2022

I used once and I had to install it incorrectly to make it work. In order to hold the rack in place there are hooks that must be inserted on both sides of the trunk in the opening between the car body and the trunk lid. There was sufficient space on the left side, but not the right. By not able to insert the right hook, the rack could fall off. The rack design is good if there is a space on both sides of the trunk lid.

You mentioned that there was not room on the right side of the trunk for the hooks. I wanted to see if you would be willing to send pictures?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 01/26/2022
I even tried to grind down the hook to fit the right side. I still could not it on the right side.
-- comment by: John - 01/26/2022
I did tentatively reach out to Thule about the bike rack. My contact there wanted to make sure that you do have the dial set to # 8 for your 2011 Infiniti M37. Also, a suggestion that was given was to open the trunk just a little bit to get that extra clearance to get the hook on. It may require two people to do this though. I wanted to see if you had already given this a try?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 01/26/2022
I double checked and my setting is in #8. Not sure what that has to do with ing the side hooks. Opening the trunk was first thing I tried. Again the narrow space on the right side did not allow me to close the trunk with the hook in place.
-- comment by: John - 01/26/2022
I did reach out again to Thule and they had one more tip: You only want to have the lip of the hook to grab the edge of the trunk. If this not helpful, then they would like to see a short video of trying to the hooks into the trunk.

  • Thule Passage vs. Thule Gateway Pro Trunk-Mount Bike Rack for 2011 Subaru Forester
