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.

            I previously had a hitch rack which had arms that the bikes hung from. This style is some much easier to use and more importantly easy on my bikes, LOVE it!

                      Only thing good is it is easy to assemble and install. I had a Thelma 2 which I really liked and someone drove into it and broke. I needed another rack and no Thelma 2's in stock. When I saw the Freedom 2 I thought it would be great as the clamps were all adjustable and I had trouble with the handlebar of one bike rubbing on the seat of the other so saw this as a solution. Wrong. I tried it with one bike and it was great. It may work well for two road bikes but is very poor for two hybrids. Have a small frame hybrid (my wife's) and a large frame (mine). The bikes fit too close together so it is hard to put on two bikes without playing with the cranks. I can't put on two bikes without removing the seat on mine, no way to adjust around it. One tire holder has a cut out for the strap, great design feature, the other three don't - mystery to me! So, I went from loving a Saris rack to being willing to return this in a heartbeat if the distributor didn't have a ridiculous 15% restocking fee and a no return policy on products that have been installed, which of course means no returns since you don't see the issues until after installation. They didn't say anything, saw it on the receipt after I ran into problems with the rack.

                          I really am happy with my bike rack. It is very female friendly and I like that I can manage getting my bike on and off by myself. The rack itself is not too heavy making it a great fit for me. I definitely would recommend it!
