Excellent, sturdy fit!

PostedOctober 11, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Purchased this for my BMW 3 series salon and fits very nicely on the back. The strap catches are covered in a rubberised material that will not damage the boot paint job and the foot of the rack is covered in very thick durable foam that rests nicely on the bumper. When finished it folds flat in 5 seconds to pop in the boot so dont have to leave it attached to the car when out in the countryside. The manual is also very clear and to the point. I give the areas of contact on the car a little wipe with a microfiber cloth before installing to prevent any unknown particles being stuck in between and cause scratching. Very pleased with the Saris brand and will serve well for many years I believe.

Does the job but not perfect

PostedOctober 16, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
Cons: fiddly to get stable
the rack does what it is designed to however it doesn't fit the car as well as I'd like and takes a bit of work to get stable on a fiesta 09 plate

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Excellent sturdy rack for use on hatchbacks and smaller vehicles. Easy to set up once you have read the instructions - possible to set up in 5 minutes. A great piece of kit for a cycling holiday or if you are fed up of taking your wheels off to fit your roadie on the back seats.

A decent product that does the job

PostedOctober 26, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
Pretty good bike carrier that works well. I have an Astra SRi XP 150 3 door sporthatch 59 reg and it fits really well. Fitted it quite quickly and with a bit of practice it will be rock solid. My mountain bike felt pretty secure on the motorway. Make sure the straps are tight and it will not move.
Good value.

Great product, easy to use...

PostedJuly 8, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Pleasingly simple to fit to by hatchback. Two of the fabric straps seems to be made fitting in an incorrect orientation, but this was quite obvious and easy to correct.
First journey was a bit bumpy, but soon learnt how to make the whole rack more stable. Second journey was great.
I do not have experience of other racks, but this worked very well and therefore I would recommend it to friends.

I purchased this as we needed to transport 2 bikes and I couldn't stretch to the roof carrier I wanted. After reading lots of reviews I opted for this Saris Bike Porter when it was on offer and am really pleased that I did.
It's very sturdy and really easy to fit to the car. The instructions are really helpful so I felt confident that I had fitted it properly, especially since when it was tightened up if I wiggled it the whole car wiggled with it!
We have a Mk1 Ford Focus and it fits great but it does obscure the number plate so we had to buy a spare, which we just cable tied to the cross-bar of the top bike once it was loaded on the carrier.
Was a bit nervous when we first hit the road as was having nightmares in case it fell off and took both bikes with it, but suffice to say the quality and fit of this bike carrier mean that both bikes were more than secure during transport.
Overall, I think this carrier is great quality and it does exactly what we needed it too. Plus Evans service was impeccable as always, next day delivery was spot on, it arrived in plenty of time for our excursion.
