Expert Answers about Saris

  • Recommended Bike Carrier For 2015 Honda CR-V
  • There are a couple different style bike racks that may work for you. You stated you want a bike rack that goes behind your CR-V and not on the roof. We offer trunk mount bike racks and the other style bike rack we offer would be a hitch-mounted bike rack. The trunk mount bike rack I recommend is the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier, part # SA805. This is an easy bike rack to put on and take off the rear of your CR-V. It uses 6 straps to secure it to the back of the vehicle and has an...

  • How to Carry a Womens Bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack
  • All you would need is an adapter bar to carry a women's bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack part # SA805BL. An adapter bar like the part # 64005 would attach to the seat post of your bike and at the steering stem to provide a horizontal attachment point for the bike rack. Check out the review video I attached for this product as well.

  • 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...

  • Will the Saris Bones Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a Honda CR-V
  • I you can tell me the year of your Honda CR-V I can make some specific recommendations. If it is a model that has a spare tire mounted on the back then we do have some spare tire racks that are likely to fit. And for models that do not have a rear mounted spare tire I am sure that we have trunk mount racks that will fit. The Saris Bones bike rack, # SA805, is listed as a fit from Saris for the 2012 to 2014 Honda CR-V. These models did not have the spare tire mounted on the back. I have...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Platform Bike Rack for a Step-Through Frame Bike and 2014 Subaru Forester
  • First, highway driving should actually be less stressful on the rack than surface road driving because there tends to be less curves, bumps, pot holes, and other similar things you would find on the streets. Any of the racks you are interested in should have no issues on the freeway. Stability: platform bike racks are going to move around. This is because of their design. You have long platforms extending out from the center of the hitch with weight on them. There is going to be some...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 GLA 250
  • We have a trunk mounted bike rack that has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Mercedes GLA that has a spoiler, but the Saris Bones that you referenced is not the correct one. Instead you would want the Hollywood Racks Over the Top part # HRF2 as it has been confirmed to fit you vehicle. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out...

  • Will the Saris Freedom SuperClamp Be Able to Accommodate 4 Full Size Mountain Bikes
  • The Saris Freedom SuperClamp # SA4026 is a great bike rack that can accommodate almost any bike since it is a wheel mount bike rack. As long as your bikes are within the specs for the SuperClamp then you will have no problem fitting 4 mountain bikes on it. The weight capacity for the 2 inner positions is 60 lbs per bike and the weight capacity for the 2 outer positions is 35 lbs per bike. The max wheelbase that the SuperClamp will hold is 48 inches with a max tire width of 3 inches (you...

  • 4-Bike Rack to use on the Back of Travel Trailer 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. We do have a somewhat similar 4 bike rack we have the Lets Go...

  • Comparing the Yakima KingJoe and Saris Bones Bike Racks for a 2013 Honda Fit
  • I recommend the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack, # SA805, for your 2013 Honda Fit. This bike rack has been confirmed to fit your vehicle and the injection-molded plastic construction makes it a great lightweight bike rack. At almost 10 lbs, this bike rack is easy for anyone to install or uninstall. It also has a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike. I have attached a review video of this bike rack for you to check out. The Yakima KingJoe 2 Bike Rack, # Y02619, is also a quality bike rack. Personally,...

  • Recommended Hitch Mount Bike Racks to Deter Theft
  • So sorry your bike was stolen! The Saris Freedom SuperClamp EX # SA4025F would be my choice because of the integrated stainless steel cable lock. It will secure your bike to the rack to deter theft. See the included video at the 3:55 mark. The Yakima HoldUp # Y02443 (see Yakima video at the 2:09 mark) and Thule T2 Classic # TH9044 platform bike racks are quite nice too. In addition to any of these bike racks, I would recommending getting a Deadbolt cable lock # CAB-10. The lock...

  • Trunk-Mount 2-Bike Rack for 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
  • For the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Saris has not yet completed test fits to confirm compatibility of their Bones 2 trunk-mount carrier # SA805BL. The rack DOES fit the 2017 coupes and sedans so odds are good it will also work on the hatchback; this just has not been confirmed. Thule has not confirmed trunk rack fits on the 2017 Civic hatchback at this time either but Yakima does show their Fullback 2 # Y02634 and Halfback 2 # Y02636 as confirmed fits. Videos for both are included for you.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 2017 Honda Civic Coupe
  • We only have one bike rack that will fit your 2017 Honda Civic Coupe EX-T. It is the Saris Bones and is available in 2 bike like the # SA805BL or 3 bike like # SA801BL. It is a very simple design and yet the beauty is in its simplicity. It is injection-molded plastic so it is durable and rustproof. It has rubber feet and vinyl coated hooks so it won't scratch your car's finish. It also separated the bikes on different levels. It is available in different colors too (black, gray, yellow,...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 2-Bikes on a 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid with Spoiler
  • The only 2-bike trunk mounted rack that will fit your 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid with spoiler is the Hollywood Racks # HRF2. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches. But honestly it is the nature of the location of the rack and the elements it encounters while on the road. Dirt and debris will get caught by the rack and then rub against your paint....

  • Recommended Bike Rack that Will Allow Rear Hatch to Open on a 2015 Honda CR-V
  • I do have a solution for you but when using a trunk mount bike rack such as the Saris Bones # SA801 or any other trunk mount carrier you will not be able to open the rear hatch on your 2015 Honda CR-V. There are a couple of reasons for this: The hinges aren't designed for the extra weight so it could fall. The hooks of trunk mount bike racks are meant to install with the trunk/hatch closed. When opening the trunk/hatch it will pinch the hooks and can bend the metal of the vehicle....

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Best Ground Clearance
  • The rack that would give you the best ground clearance and bike wheel protection would be the Saris Freedom part # SA4414B. This rack has an angled shank that angles up soon after the shank exits the hitch opening. The bikes are also loaded higher and higher as you get further away from the back of the vehicle, whereas the other racks don't have that feature. Where you will see ground clearance issue the most will be the portion of the rack that exits the hitch opening. On the # HR1400...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Mounted 4 Bike Rack for a 2007 Honda Element
  • Because the bike racks are effectively universal in terms of hitch shape, we don't custom-fit to each vehicle individually. An exception is of course if the vehicle has a rear mount spare tire. Since you don't have one, you don't need to worry about this. The bumper or body elements of a vehicle can sometimes get in the way, and if you're worried about this, you can simply measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge plane of the bumper. I've included a video of our installation...

  • The Saris Freedom SuperClamp EX 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # SA4025F will fit your 29 inch mountain bike tires. I reached out to my contact at Saris to confirm and the clamp will not be an issue. It will fit and secure your bike properly.

  • Will Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier Interfere With Back up Sensors On 2017 Subaru Forester
  • When you use any hitch mounted accessory like a bike or cargo carrier in your trailer hitch, it will likely set the backup sensors off. If the rack does not set the sensors off, the bikes probably will. You may have a setting that allows you to mute the sensors when you are carrying bikes. When choosing any accessory for your Forester you want to make sure you have enough clearance at the back of the vehicle. I have attached a helpful article that explains how you can measure to make...

  • Will the Saris Traps Fork-Block Bike Rack Hold Through Axle Bikes
  • Saris Traps Fork-Block # SATRK34-BLK3 is designed to hold bikes with 9mm axles but not through axle bikes but we do have several truck bed bike racks that will accept through axle bikes, see link. One of the more popular options is the Kuat Dirtbag # DRT15. I have included a link to a video of this product for you.

  • Saris Superbones vs Thule Raceway Pro Trunk Rack Bike Rack Comparison
  • Between the two rack you mentioned I would go with the Thule Raceway part # TH9002PRO only because the pads that the bike rack touches the vehicle with are much larger on the Raceway which would give you more surface area to spread the weight of the rack and bikes across. Aside from that the two racks are very similar and excellent options. The frame cradles of the Raceway are a bit more padded and use a strap design that I like better than the Saris. Either one would work well for you...

  • Recommendation for a Lightweight 4-Bike Carrier
  • Our lightest 4-bike carrier is the Saris Bike Porter 4-Bike Rack, # SA404B, at 23-1/2 lbs. This is an entry-level bike rack with basic features. This bike rack will fit Class II and higher trailer hitches and you can add a hitch lock, # SA3022, and a cable lock, # SA981. Another bike rack that you may be interested in is the Hollywood Racks Traveler 4-Bike Rack, # HR8500. This is a more economical option, but it does come with anti-sway cradles to keep the bikes from moving when you...

  • Recommended Trunk Mount Bike Rack that Won't Scratch or Dent 2015 Mercedes-Benz 300C
  • Let me begin by saying that anytime you have a piece of equipment strapped to the painted finish of a vehicle, the potential for scratches or dents exists, no getting around it. This being said, the risks can be minimized by putting as little weight as possible on the racks and by observing the racks weight capacity, by installing the rack exactly as described in the instructions, and by keeping the surfaces where the rack and vehicle touch absolutely clean. A good coat of quality car...

  • Availability of Saris Traps Fork-Mount Bike Carrier for Single Bike
  • We do indeed offer a single track version of the Saris Traps bike carrier system that can be used with their Fork Mount Bike Carrier # SATR1BLK. Saris offers a 47-inch single track, part # SATRK14. A shorter 35-inch Triple Track is also available, part # SATRK33. If you want to choose a complete system you might consider # SATRK33-BLK3, which consists of a 35-inch triple track and three fork blocks. No 2-block version is offered. Since this system is not vehicle-specific you will...

  • Which Trunk Mount Bike Carriers Fit a 2015 Honda CR-V LX Model
  • Currently, only 2 Saris trunk mount bike racks will work with a 2015 Honda CR-V. They are # SA805 (2 bike carrier) and # SA801 (3 bike carrier) and the weight capacity is 35 pounds per bike. Please note that when installing either of these bike carriers, you will need the Hatch Hugger # SA3035. They replace the lower hooks or place the lower hooks inside the trunk. Thule and Yakima hasn't been a confirmed fit as of yet, but a few of the Hollywood trunk mount bike racks have been confirmed....

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe
  • Sounds like a trunk rack would be your best option. These are great for occasional use and they don't make you install a trailer hitch to install either. The Saris Bones 2 part # SA805 has been confirmed as a fit and would work well on the 2015 BMW 428xDrive Gran Coupe if you end up getting it. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal...

Written installation instructions and a review video are included for your reference. The Bones 2 uses an arched base to allow it to clear most trunk-mount spoilers and offers a 35-lb-per-bike weight capacity. The Bones 2 carries a limited lifetime warranty and is USA-made.

  • Best Bike Rack for a Womans and Childs Bike on a 2012 Volvo XC60
  • I went out to our test fit garage and tried out a few racks with one of our childs' bikes with fenders and a women's step through mountain bike to see if we had a good fit. In testing the Saris racks like the Freedom Super Clamp, part # SA4025F, the trouble I came across was that the child's bike (A 12-inch wheel bike with 24 inch wheelbase) was a little too short for the Saris' mounting devices to reach. This means that the bike would be riding freely in the cradles and have a chance...

  • Platform 4-Bike Rack Comparison, Thule T2 vs. Saris Freedom SuperClamp vs. Kuat NV
  • All three of the bike racks you mentioned are great options. Since you mentioned ease of installation I would recommend going with the lightest option of the three as that will make the biggest difference there. The Freedom SuperClamp part # SA4026-FB weighs in at 63 lbs, the T2 part # TH9044-TH9046 weighs 85 lbs, and the NV part # NV22G-NA22G weighs 82 lbs. Between those three I would go with the SuperClamp because it is considerable lighter than the other two. But honestly these...

  • Bike Rack to Fit 2016 Honda CR-V
  • Trunk mount bike racks are not considered to fit on a 2016 Honda CR-V by most bike rack manufacturers because of the automatic rear windshield wiper. Your rear wiper will turn on automatically when the front wipers are on and the car is put into reverse. Even if the rear windshield wiper is turned off. This can be an issue if you have a back rack mounted to your car. I would check with Honda to see if there is a way to turn this feature off, or how to best avoid the situation. With...
