Product Details

Saris Thelma 2-Bike

Safe, secure, and easy to use, the stylish Saris Thelma 2-Bike is the time-saving hitch rack you’re looking for. There’s no need to take your wheels off—the front gets strapped into the stiff crescent moon tray while the rear gets buckled down with Saris’ ratcheting strap. Your frame never comes in contact with the rack. The front wheel trays fold down so you can access your trunk, while the entire rack folds up out of the way when not in use. You’ll be able to carry all types of bikes—two of up to 35 pounds each. Plus, the rack itself only weighs 26 pounds, making it easy to take on and off.

          Bikes fit great and seem very secure while travelling (other racks I've used dont seem to secure bikes as well). Also, you dont have to wrap the frame in cloth like i have with other racks (some press on the brake cables and can scratch the bike) since there is no frame contact.

          This is a great bike rack. It holds the bikes securely without touching the frame. It is easy to load and unload the bikes. My only complaint is that I can't open the rear lift gate on my Subaru Outback when both of the bikes are on the rack. I would highly recommend this bike rack, it is well constructed and it is easy to use.

                I have owned Thelma for 4/5 years, travel a lot and think this is the greatest rack ever. Couldn't have made a better purchase.

                      This rack seems stable and beefy enough to support two mountain bikes or two lighter road bikes. It is easy to use, attaches firmly and seems very stable - we use on the back of a Wrangler and take it on some pretty rought roads! One issue we have: the width between the two bikes could be a bit greater. The handler bar and seat hights are approximately the same on both our mtn bikes. In order to keep the seats from rubbing on the bar/brake levers, we need to loosen and turn the seat(s). Other than that, it works well.
