  • Installing a Saris rack...

Description

Don’t waste your weekend! Go explore with Saris’ Bike Porter Trunk 3-Bike rack. It’s outfitted with adjustable features to fit a vast variety of vehicles. Constructed of sturdy, durable steel, the rack’s frame has 15 different easy-to-adjust positions. It’s held in place by foam-padded legs and four straps, each with a smartly coated hook to protect your car’s finish. The bikes are held down with ratcheting, anti-sway straps and rest in protective, grooved rubber cradles, which allow the shift cables to slot down underneath and away from the top tube.

Doesn't fit right and is difficult to use

Pros:
Lightweight
Cons:
Weak Construction, Doesn't Fit My Car, Unstable
Best Uses:
This product I am very unhappy with. I have a Ford Escape and it fits very poorly. Every time I need to fold the arms down the entire rack collapses so basically I have to re adjust the whole thing, and its the same process to get it ready for a bike. I have to loosen all the straps uncollapse the rack and then tighten it all over again. It is a pain and time consuming. Also there is NO WAY this will fit 3 bikes on it. None of the holders are adjustable at all. Lastly, two of the nylon straps that are supposed to be held tight with the teeth...decided to no longer work. So there goes that stability.

Great Product!

Pros:

Best Uses:
This rack is perfect for a couple or young family. Holding 3 bikes it's great for traveling to vacation destinations.. a couple beach cruisers and your road bike to stay fit while on vaca. We love it so far and will eventually upgrade to something larger to accommodate a growing family ;)

Versatile, compact way to transport 3 bike.

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
We use this rack on a hatchback (Pontiac Vibe). It is fairly easy to set up and use and holds the 3 bikes very well. My one complaint is the mechanism to adjust the angle of the rack is sometimes hard to move because the "teeth" don't slide out easily. But once it is set for the angle you need there is no need to adjust again. This is an affordable rack with a lifetime guarantee and it works on many different types of vehicles. I have loaned it to my brother and it works well on his Honda Fit.

Great all-around bike rack!

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
I purchased the Porter for use on my Toyota Prius 2 years ago, and it has been serving me well ever since. I am able to set it up quickly, and I appreciate knowing that my family's bikes will be securely attached for both long and short car rides. I would absolutely purchase another.

I purchased this product this past summer so that my son and I could transport my granddaughters (including his & mine adult bikes) between our two homes. I have a compact sedan and he has a crossover SUV. This bike carrier adjusted to both vehicles with no difficulties. It is was easy attach to both and feels extremely secure.

I would buy this carrier again.

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
I only started road biking in early February 2013 and was previously putting my bike in the back of an SUV.I was unsure about a carrier at this point as I had one in the 90's to carry moutain bikes and the bikes never felt secure when we were driving. The carrier also left dents in the car. At riding events I looked at what people were using and then talked to the staff at the bike store and decided on a Saris 3 bike carrier. After reading the instructions and taking some advice from the salesman at the bike store, the Saris installion was quick and easy.I am very happy with this product and ready to ride anywhere.

For the price, this is the best

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
Very compact when folded. Easy to install. Sturdy when installed. However, it is not compatible with bikes with non-horizonatal top tube (e.g., "ladies" bikes). It requires purchasing an extra device.

not happy

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
Mounted this on the back of my camry and took our 3 bikes to the beach. When I returned, the area where the bottom of the rack was touching the car had been pressed in by the rack. I don't know if other cars have stronger sheet metal, but I am currently looking for a replacement. I noticed too that it was pretty wobbly on the road and it gave my heart quite a tough time each time I drove over an uneven patch of road. At one point, one of the straps actually came off during a turn and my car got badly scratched by the inner most bike. Putting on the bikes is also a pain, with little space available for each bike.

Not as good as my old Grabar Rack

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
Loved my old (20 yrs) Grabar rack. Arms folded easily,and rack was well made. This rack is made more cheaply I don't think it will last even 10 yrs.

Very satisfied

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
Installs in a few minutes and removes just as quickly. Bikes attach easily and are held firmly in place. On first use the top straps needed tightening after about 100 miles, but were not loose enough to be in fear of loosing the bikes. Very happy with this rack, would have preferred the bones, but did not fit my car!

I would recommend it to friends

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
I use it to tote my bike an hour and forty minutes on I476 to the Poconos as well as locally to go on casual rides with my Friends. It is truely easy to use, light wieght and can be pretty compact to store when not in use. The only negeative thing for me was that I had to pay an additional $39.99 for a bar to hold my bike so that it would sit properly on the rack. And I have to buy another bar for my wife's bike.
