    Stable but with three considerations

    By Carta

    from Madison, AL, United States

    About Me

    Comments:

    The Freedom SuperClamp 2 is easy to load and the bikes appear very stable as you drive. You'll be confident that the bikes are secure while your car is moving. But this rack has three considerations: a cheap cable lock, the need for a tool to install or remove it, and the inability to fold up to be more visible and less vulnerable to other drivers. The cheap 1/4" integrated cable lock will make you think twice when you pull over for a pit stop. Instead of having the visual and physical deterrence of the more common 1/2" cable lock, the integrated cable has little gravitas. You'll want to purchase a second cable or other lock, adding to the price of the rack. To use this rack with a car, you'll need to get down on the ground with a 3/4" wrench to work the locking bolt securing the rack to your hitch receiver. That's not a problem if you drive a vehicle with high ground clearance or leave the rack installed full-time. To leave the rack installed full-time, you'll need to be comfortable with it sticking out behind your car and staying low to the ground in daily traffic and parking. On a Honda Civic, the rack jutted out about two feet and sat a foot above the ground. With no bikes attached, I wasn't confident that other drivers, or even pedestrians in a parking lot, would see it easily. That, and the inadequate cable lock, convinced me to return the rack and shop the competition.

    Easy, but odd

    By DelRay226

    About Me

    Comments:

    I've owned this for a little over a month and I must admit this is the easiest way to secure bikes to a vehicle I've tried. I ride a 29" MTB and it is quick and intuitive to get bikes on and off. I am a huge fan of the tire touch only method of fastening. I am highly critical of the system that secures the rack to the hitch. I would much prefer a system that allows a simple third party lock to be applied to the receiver to retain the rack. Using a pass-through bolt as a locking mechanism does allow for SARIS to state they provide a locking mechanism, but it also means that I need to carry extra tools, and the security of the rack, and my bikes, is at risk when the bolt stretches over time. The locking mechanism is the main reason I would not recommend this rack and would encourage another model or another manufacturer.

    Just Great

    I have used the Freedom SuperClamp 2-Bike hitch rack about five or six times and am amazed at how easy it is to load and unload our bikes. Just adjust the wheel holders the first time you use the bike rack and you are set. Also, I no longer need an adapter bar for my wife's bike. I have not used the integrated locks for the bikes yet, but that feature will be nice once it is needed. Great job, Saris!

    Very Difficult to Mount the Bike Rack

    By Bryan B

    from Export, PA

    About Me

    Comments:

    My Freedom SuperClamp 2-Bike Hitch Rack has been fantastic to use in regards to loading and unloading the bikes. However, I have installed the bike rack three times and had much difficulty in doing so. In particular, the Locking Hitch Tite threaded bolt was difficult to tighten. On my third attempt to mount the bike rack, the threads "stripped out", making it extremely difficult to remove the bolt. My only option is to have a machine shop drill a new 1/2" hole, and then use a 1/2" pin and clip to secure the bike rack in my receiver. I used a Thule trailer hitch bike rack for over fifteen years, and mounted the bike rack hundreds of times, all without a problem. I am very disappointed with my purchase.

    Great product. Be aware if you have your spare tire outside you will need a hitch extension (2002 Jeep Liberty)

    Great quality, features, and value!

    I bought this a couple of months ago, but with the winter weather finally disappearing, today is my first day using it. I drove nearly 30 miles with one 30 pound 26" full-suspension MTB and experience zero rattling/shaking during my mostly highway driving. I also enjoy the peace of mind from the two built in locking systems.

    EZ on, EZ off

    Comments:

    This is my first bike rack, so I don't have anything to compare it to. However, I did a lot of research and found a lot of negative comments on cheaper racks so I decided to make a good investment for my Trek bikes. This hitch rack installs easily to my SUV, it's stable, and even for a novice like myself, I'm able to load up each bike in about a minute. Best of all, the bikes feel very stable and the included cable provides extra security.

    SO easy to use!

    By Dee Dee

    Comments:

    My husband bought this rack for me last year so I could transport a bike without someone's assistance to get it on and off the roof of the car, I lack the upper body strength. Love the yellow tabs to easily move the height to secure and release tires, built in lock, and is adjustable for different sized bikes. The rack itself is too heavy for me to remove but my husband can do it easily. Only thing that would make it better - if I could swing it out to get items out of the back of my car without having to remove bikes, fold down and maneuver around to reach truck items. It's the only rack to have!

    Easy to use

    I bought the Freedom super clamp-2 about a year ago. I love it. We have a bones that works well, but hard for me to lift my bike that high. With the Freedom super clamp I am able to put my bike on and go. The rack keeps the bikes secure and is so easy to use. Also I like that it locks to the hitch and has a lock for the bikes. The cable for the bike lock could be a little longer, but works. This is a perfect rack for me.
