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.

    Poorly designed rack

          I really wanted to like this rack but the fact that my bikes won't fit makes it difficult. The brackets for the wheels are excellent but the upper clamp is a terrible design. No matter how the clamps are adjusted, the upper clamp always hits the water bottle cage. Am I supposed to remove the cage every time I want to transport a bike?

                I have been using this rack for several months now and appreciate the ease of use to load the bike, lock the wheels in place and then unload. IMO, it is the perfect rack for hauling 2 bikes. I have a FS 26er and a HT 29er and both fit with no issues thanks to the adjustable wheel trays.

                      I love how securely this rack holds the bikes. I switched from a top hanging style, and am do glad I did. I also picked up the locking lynch pin and the aluminum adapter for 2" hitches. I would definitely recommend both, particularly the aluminum adapter. Great rack at a competitive price!

                            Very well made product. Comes with minimal effort to assemble and get on the hitch. A strap was broken on the item I received. I called customer service. They were very helpful. A few days later I had a whole new SET of straps in my mailbox. Thanks!!

                                  I needed something to carry my new carbon fiber bike. I used to lay the aluminium one down in the bed of my truck. I didn't want to hang the bike so this one works well and I can open the tailgate by folding down the vertical support. Goes on and off pretty easy as well.

                                        I bought this rack for my two new bikes what a great investment. I am not concerned about over tightening the aluminum frame of the bike with majority of the weight resting on the wheels and only a minor snug needed on the frame to keep it from tipping over. If you are looking for a two bike rack this I would highly recommend.

                                              I was worry about any rack on my Passat, you always see the bikes on SUVs or tracks. But this rack is amazing, easy to install on your car, and the bikes are again very easy to set.

                                                                I decided to get back into biking a few years ago and wanted an easy to use bike rack to take our bikes camping when the car is filled with gear. I used it on both a standard size hitch with adjuster and a smaller hitch without adjuster and it was simple to install and sturdy. The bikes are strapped in there and I felt confident they would not fall off. I could easily wrap a standard bike lock through all the bikes at once and through the rack to secure them when we went places with the bikes. The hitch allows for a padlock so this thing can secure your bikes. The arm swivels down to the left or right and we could easily get in the back of my Chevy Equinox when the rack wad attached without bikes on it. The bikes do not move at all and the hitch has a tiny sway but it is very solidly attached to the car. Getting the rack on and off is a cinch.
