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.

                      Let me say first that it's a solid, well-made, quality product. The only thing I want to point out is that when I drive at highway speeds, I noticed the bike and rack swaying up, down and sideways as I went over rough spots. My friend was driving in front of me, and his rack was rock-solid. I didn't see his bike move at all, no matter what the road conditions were. He has a Yakima, and the difference between mine and his is, mine has one padded stability cushion (the "lower foot pad") resting on the fender, whereas his Yakima has one resting on the fender and one on the trunk. The "upper foot pad" on mine seems to be undersized. It should have been a wide, thickly padded support like the lower foot pad, not just an arm resting on the trunk. By the way, I had the straps cinched as tightly as possible. I was pretty anxious driving at 60-65 mph. and looking in the mirror and seeing the rack and bike bouncing along. Maybe I'm not used to it yet, and need to make adjustments. Overall it is a very well engineered product.

                            I purchased 1 month a go for a Lincoln MKZ. Fits well and sturdy. After 1-2 set-ups, now easy to take on/off. Based on short mileage trips, would assume could withstand longer trips as well. There is extra length on the straps and I purchased cheap velcro straps to bundle the extra so they are not dangling. Very good value for the money.

                                  Selected this since I am only an occasional cyclist. Not very easy to install, and didn't work well on my vehicle since the trunk edges are all curved. Ended up with deep scratches all around my car because the brackets are metal. Took it off and will return. (And buy touch up paint. Ugh.)

                                        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 constantly use the rack for traveling around Puerto Rico. Is great that this rack is so lightweight.

                                                    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!

                                                          Mounted easily on a 2007 Honda Civic on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning set off on a three day drive to Washington State. Checked the stabilizer straps as recommended and only had to tighten them slightly during the drive. At first wasn't quit sure about adjusting the horizontal carry bars to a full horizontal position and had to readjust to achieve that configuration. Very stable laterally. Very pleased with performance.
