Product Details

Saris Bike Porter Trunk 2-Bike

Saris’ Bike Porter Trunk 2-Bike rack is 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.

          I have had no problems with my rack thus far and feel confident within my purchase. I drive a 2012 Mazda Mazda 2 and given the awkward (and small) shape of my hatchback, I think that my Saris rack fits perfectly. It's easy to adjust and easy to take on and off. No complaints over here :) Completely worth it!

          Purchased the Porter 2 as i had read some great reviews about it, One thing that was not accounted for is a rear spoiler. This makes for a difficult fit and some fiddling.. I am currently in communication with Saris support regarding this. The rack is still not on properly as per the instructions, the user manual does advise to refer to the website for special need fits if your vehicle contains a spoiler but i could not find anything at all covering this. If your vehicle does not have a rear spoiler i would definitely recommend this rack as it is solid and stable and does what they say it does. Just be cautious if your vehicle has one.

                I particularly like how well the rack cradles the bike & holds it steady. Also like that although a little awkward, I can still open my trunk, even with a bike mounted on the rack (not so sure it would still work w/2). Only improvement I would like to see is a convenient way to manage the long straps after they are secured - I just tie them off, but it looks klutzy & I don't want to cut them off, because I might need longer straps for my next vehicle - definitely minor in any case!

                      If you are not carefull the bike can rub against the car's bumper. The tie downs that attach to the lower trumk are difficult to keep tight. They come loose and whip around in the wind.
