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.

          A good product overall with one missing feature

                This is a good product, very sturdy and holds the bikes firmly without any wobble. However, I did return this rack, but only because it stuck so far from my car. I was concerned about parking or someone hitting it from behind when not in use. I found a rack that folds up against the back of my car when not in use. If the Saris had this feature, I would have kept it. So if this isn't an issue for you, don't hesitate to buy it. It's a good product.

                      I bought the Saris Freedom 2 for a few reasons. My bike has a step through frame so it doesn't work well on a rack where the bikes have to hang. Also my bike has fenders so I couldn't use a rack that clamps up over the wheel. This rack works perfectly for me. My bike sits in the supports, the upright cups the bottom of the down tube and nothing moves, it feels very solid. Another great thing about this rack is the weight. It feels very sturdy but it's light enough that I can install or remove it myself. I am so happy with this rack, I will absolutely recommend it to friends.

                            I bought the rack a couple months ago so I could haul my wives low step and either my road bike or mountain bike.So easy to load and unload,and the bikes are very secure,we've been on rough roads, to interstates.I really like the fact they are supported on the wheels and snugged down with the rachet straps.Easy to adjust to fit any of my bikes,confidence going down the road.

                            Great Rack for Subaru Outback

                                  I needed a rack that I would feel comfortable driving to/from New York to Florida. After much research and having a trailer hitch installed on my 2014 Subaru Outback, I chose the Saris Freedom 2 as it is ideal for carrying different types of bikes securely without concerns for scratching or damaging the bikes or your vehicle. The rack fits snugly into a 2 inch hitch using the provided adaptor. This was one specific concern I had. I wanted a 2 inch hitch for more flexibility and thought a bike rack built specifically for a 2 inch hitch would be more stable. However, I found the Freedom 2 mounts easily and securely. Be sure to tighten the hitch pin with a wrench. I also purchased the Saris locking hitch pin and use a Schlage locking cable to secure the bikes to my hitch. I realize these are just deterrents to theft but provides the security I primarily need. Most important the bikes can be loaded quickly and the ratchet straps minimize bike movement. The only additional feature I would have liked was having the rack fold up more when not in use. I added some yellow and black reflective tape to the rack to add visibility at night. I would certainly recommend this rack.

                                        Bought about a month ago and it has worked perfectly. Only sugesstion is that it be designed in the future with a quick connect hitch option so one won't need to bolt and unbolt each time to install/remove rack. Maybe only requiring bolt when travelling longer distances for a more secure connection. Otherwise, great rack!

                                              We bought our Freedom 2-bike about a month ago and it has performed well. Assemby was easy. It took a little time and a couple tries to find the best position (bike direction and wheel carrier postitions) for carrying the bikes. Now that we have the bike position on the rack set.... loading and unloading the bikes is easy. Mounting the rack on the truck and loading the bikes can be done in a few minutes. We just returned from a 800 mile trip and had no problems at all. The rack held steady and sturdy even over some pretty rough roads.
