Will the Saris Bones Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2007 Subaru Legacy with Spoiler

Question:

I have a 2007 Subaru Legacy with a factory trunk lid spoiler. Is the SA805BL the best 2 bike carrier for this car ? Can the right and left side straps be adjusted so they will not touch the spoiler ? Are there any other recommended parts for this carrier ?

Helpful Expert Reply:

If your 2007 Subaru Legacy factory spoiler is the low profile design with no gap between it and the trunk then you won't have a problem using a trunk mount bike rack such as # SA805BL. If it is the taller one found on WRX/STi models then there could be fit problems and Saris states that their racks will not fit.

If you do have the taller spoiler you could use the SeaSucker Komodo # 298-BK1910-GO or go with a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike rack. If you want to go with a trailer hitch you can use # 36334. Then you could use a light weight, inexpensive bike rack such as the BikeWing, # B01311.

I have linked some helpful videos for you as well.
