Product Details

Saris Freedom 2-Bike

Transport all types of bikes with Saris’ Freedom 2-Bike hitch rack. Its innovative design adjusts to fit most bikes and sizes, including kids’ and even some recumbents, thanks to the adjustability of its center upright support. It uses quick-adjust trays and ratcheting straps to secure two bikes of up to 35 pounds each, and loading is made easy by the low tray height. The center upright support even tilts down to allow trunk access. Plus, the rack itself only weighs 21 pounds, making it easy to take on and off.

    Best Bike Rack Ever!

    By audiomaster66

    from Port Huron, MI

    About Me

    Pros

    • supports from tires not frame
    • Light weight
    • adjustable

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Carbon Fiber Frames

      Comments:

      This style of rack is frankly the only type to use for carbon fiber framed bikes. The support is all under the tires. The upright attachment is just to keep the bike in the upright position. Just remember to always always always make sure the upright attachment is fastened, especially for the outside bike. Otherwise if you go down the road the outer bike could end up tipping and being dragged. Oops. I did that once. But that is on me, not the design. I can't tell you how many people have said to me that they love my bike rack and wish theirs was like mine. They love it almost as much as I do. Way to go Saris. Thanks to ACF for carrying a great American made product.

        Comments:

        Of all the bike racks I have struggled with this is the first that holds the entire bike frame, tires et al firmly without any wobble or bumping into each other. It was the easiest to install, load and unload in 5 minutes tops! It is very sturdy while still being light enough to handle. I recommend it highly!

            This rack rules! It works with mens, ladies, kids bikes- full suspension, no problem- fatbike- with adapter. Easy to install and remove (20 sec.) so others complaints about interference with liftgate not really an issue (pro tip** remove rack, open liftgate, put rack inside, go for ride- it fits in a prius!!)

              This will hold most bikes on the market today. Now given that I don't own a fat bike I cannot speak for that! But I have had my TT bike on there, road bikes, Cruisers, MTN Bikes and they all work fine given that you can adjust the height for the clamps and the wheelbase. I would not trust any other bike rack to carry my pride and joy, so this is legit!! Oh also, since it is "hitch" based, it works on my car and on our family's truck.

              Comments:

              I purchased this because two of my bikes have fenders and most racks won't work. It is very stable after the bike is secured, and it is lighter weight than many other racks I've used. The clamp that is shown attached to the downtube of bikes in the videos and photographs is secure once attached, but I had to improvise and clamp to the seat tube or top tube of bikes with water bottle racks mounted, making the attachment a bit awkward. Consider this when selecting a rack. It's not a deal killer, just a bit disappointing - would be OK the clamp was easier to adjust.

                  I use the Saris Freedom rack on my SUV sag vehicle for many bicycle events. Fits most styles of bicycles. Less clunky than the other brands. Appreciate that it is Made in USA. Price is very competitive with the other brands.

                  It's a great rack, but it has its downfalls regarding fit on my vehicle. I have a Jeep Liberty with a spare tire mounted to the back. I can only put one bike on the rack since the spare tire is in the way. I also cannot open the back gate with the rack mounted. I have tried a hitch extender and it lets me mount a second bike, but I still can't open the gate. Besides the fit issues it's a super secure and easy to use rack. I have a roof rack and a different hitch rack if I need to carry multiple bikes.

                    Excellent rack. I prefer the racks that hold the bike up from the tires as opposed to the ones that hang the bike by the frame. Seems more secure to me and can accommodate various frame designs. So far I have had nothing but positive experiences with this rack and I am very happy with it.

                      I have been very pleased with this rack. I use it on my CRV when towing behind motorhome. Very stable and reliable. Lightweight enough for me to easily hook up and go. My friend even likes it better than his heavy rack.
