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.

                    Had a trunk rack and decided to get a hitch rack. Best decision I made to switch. Seems to be more secure and easier to load the bikes and remove. Best of all can lock the bikes to the rack should I need to run into the store quickly. For the price of this rack you definitely can't go wrong.

                      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!

                          Very easy to install and remove. Secured bike on trips from 30 to 300 miles, on back roads and interstate highways. Light weight. I've only used it for one bike.

                            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.
