Saris Bones Hitch Mount (3-Bike)

If you’re looking for a car rack that will haul your favorite 2-wheeled possessions with swagger and security, the Bones Hitch 3-bike has you covered. With arching lines and robust, American-made materials this hitch rack can be summarized in two words: beautiful simplicity. Weighing in at only 16 pounds, this 3-bike hitch rack is a full 25% lighter than similar racks—et just as strong. With integrated anti-sways and hold downs, the Bones Hitch is a fully functional piece of art.

- Carries 3 bikes (35 pounds/bike).
- Preassembled.
- Injection-molded arms are strongest in the market.
- Arms fold up and down with ease for quick storage and easy loading.
- Welded steel mainframe.
- Rack tilts down with pull of handle for easy access to rear of vehicle.
- Coated hold-downs and anti-sway straps provide soft-touch protection to secure and stabilize the bikes.
- Fits 1-¼-inch or 2-inch hitches.
- Hitch lock sold separately (Model 3022).
- Lightweight, steel construction weighs only 16 pounds.
- Made in Madison, WI.

      Haven't used this much yet but was easy to install and worked well on a 100 mile drive. Added lock helped me keep bikes on car overnight while traveling and at work!

      I can not get 3 bikes with the proximity of the fasteners. I believe that if I were able to carry my 2 bikes closer to the car it would increase the stability

      My only complaint is that the straps are really stiff and can be difficult to use. The teeth on the straps dig into my hand when I try to pull them tight. Would nice if they had a pull ring on the end of the strap.

        Worked well for a Florida trip when we took 1 bike down and loaded 2 more bikes locally when there. Had a flat tire on the car on the way down and much to my delight the rack and 1 bike lifted with the trunk lid without detaching, although this is not a recommended sales point. Held on firmly without wiggle at highway speeds with firm cross winds.

          it's a great product, but unfortunately the customer service is lacking. My Saris broke and the company was not willing to replace it free of charge. they would only give me a discount on purchasing a new one. so i am driving around with a broken Saris which doesn't let me open the rear door of my SUV.
