Product Description

Product Description

Support more than your bike with the cause-conscious Saris® Bones 3-bike trunk track. For every pink rack purchased, Saris® will make a donation to support breast cancer research. The Bones rack features an arched design that fits practically any vehicle, and the exclusive anti-sway straps and articulated rubber feet protect both your bike and your vehicle.


Form and function collide with the Saris Bones three-bike trunk mount rack. Conceived by famed designer Fabio Pedrini, the Bones is more than just another rear-mounted rack. Rather, the gallery-worthy rack is a testament to style, design, convenience, and durability, with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating from Bicycling Magazine. An efficient bike rack needs to be more than just a way to transport your bike from point A to point B. It needs to be easy to use, easy to install, and easy on two of your most prized possessions: your bike and your vehicle. Fortunately, the Bones meets the above conditions with room to spare, with ratchet straps that keep your bikes secured to the rack arms, exclusive anti-sways, and articulated rubber feet to protect the finish on your vehicle. As a result, nothing will get damaged in transport, including your nerves. In addition, the Bones is a breeze to install, with vinyl-coated hooks that strap securely to the car with spring buckles. And the arched design fits practically any vehicle, from sedans to minivans, and even most cars with spoilers.

The Bones 3-bike rack fits on almost any vehicle.
Constructed from heavy-duty, 100-percent recyclable plastic, the Bones rack is the strongest and most rack on the market. The injection-molded arms and legs will never rust, and are capable of supporting up to three bikes with ease. Plus, the arms separate the bikes on different levels to ensure that they won't rub or touch during transport. And because it's a trunk-mounted rack, your bikes are always accessible and easy to put in place. No overhead lifting, twisting, balancing, or hefting required, letting you save your energy for the actual ride. All Saris bike racks carry a lifetime warranty.

Note: The pink and purple cause-conscious racks let you support more than your bike, as $5 from the sale of each rack goes toward either breast cancer research (pink) or research into the cures for leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma (purple).

Easy to install and a very sturdy bike rack.
I've had my share of crappy bikes racks, so it was nice to get this model and feel like it was a real upgrade even though it isn't top-of-the-line.
Bryn Goates
With adult male bike frames, this isn't a problem.

Google the reviews of this rack and be impressed. No worries about corrosion or rust. Very stable. I got the 3 bike rack even though I have 2 bikes just to make sure I had enough room between the bikes. Easy to install, but one caveat - make sure you do NOT tighten the locking knobs for each leg too tightly or you will strip them and they will be a little loose - not a huge problem, but for peace of mind you want them snug and not loose.

I can also say this for Saris - EXCELLENT customer service. I called to get some replacement knobs, and an extra stabilizer strap since my bike is an oddball and needed an extra length of strap to secure the seat-post tube. I was expecting (and had no problem with) paying for these items. Guess what? No charge - very nice and quick shipping.

I purchased this rack to use on a new PRIUS. Works as it should. Lightweight, well padded and strong. Carried two bikes without a hitch (pun). No problems with the padded feet on the rear glass.

Good, solid rack for shorter trips. After the first time you install it, it becomes very easy to install and remove (3 to 4 minutes to install and less than 1 minute to remove). On a sedan you can leave it on, but on a SUV you have to take it off to get access to the back. The instruction talks of S-Hooks, but the two I've bought do not have S-hooks, which makes it harder to remove the hooks after installation. If you want to take your bikes across country look at hitch-racks.

Also, when I bought this rack there was one other review in this space and it was negative. 3 days later and that review has been removed!!

It would leave a bad taste in my mouth if I thought Amazon was removing negative reviews just to sell more products.

So I bought this rack a few months ago. After doing plenty of research on the various rack options for my Jetta Sportwagen,(roof racks, hitch racks, trunk racks) I ended up with the Saris.

I went with the 3 bike as opposed to the 2-bike for no reason whatsoever, except I knew there might be a day where putting 3 bikes on would be nice. It has 2 upper and 2 lower bracing points, as opposed to 2 lower and only 1 upper joint for the 2-bike setup.

So far, I have only used this for my road bikes. Multiple trips (~30 miles or so) with just one road bike. It has worked flawlessly. Took me about 15 minutes to initially set it up on my wagon. The great thing about the Saris is the flexibility of the design. I have it mounted so that I can still open up the hatch when it is attached. That is a big plus for me, as I haul stuff around quite a bit and need access to my cargo area.

This past weekend I put the Saris to the test. 3 road bikes, 600 miles of high speed (75+ mph) highway driving, bad roads, and gusting winds.

Putting the Bones on the car once it is adjusted correctly is a breeze. 3-5 minutes at most. I tie a few of the longer straps together in a bow to keep them from whipping around during the drive.

Three bikes was no problem for the Saris. With a bike on the last mount (farthest from the bracing) I did notice the arms flex slightly in the wind with the weight of the bikes. This is going to happen with any plastic material like the arms are constructed with. But it was slight enough that I never worried about my expensive frames crashing to the road into a billion pieces. So many parts would have to fail simultaneously for anything to ever happen to the rack.

I would recommend this rack to anyone who needs a small, lightweight, and removable bike rack. The price is a little higher than other racks, but it is worlds better. You get what you pay for.

After much time spent looking at my options (I drive a 2001 Honda Accord 2-door with a ridiculously short trunk), it became painfully obvious that my only options were the Saris Bones or a roof rack.

I decided to go with Saris because it was significantly less expensive and when I changed cars it would be a sure thing that the Saris would work.

The Bones system arrived disassembled, but putting it together was a snap. The instructions were almost unnecessary, but should you find yourself confused, just head over to [...] and look for the video on how to put it together.

The main piece of the Saris system is an aluminum cylinder with ridges. The ridges basically determine the height of the clearance and the travel distance for the rack. For example, if you have a spoiled on your trunk, you adjust the base accordingly and a standard rear spoiler can be easily bypassed.

The base arms and the arms that carry the cycles are made of some kind of plastic composite. Personally, I think that the composite is kind of lame and it doesn't inspire a lot of confidence (because of this I've not tried carrying three bike). I did, however, carry two bikes a number of times without any issues. If Saris ever makes an all aluminum system I'll be all over it.

There are three straps that tie the system down and they fit my car without any trouble. The Saris also includes bike straps on the carrying arms, as well. They are well made and easy to use.

The reason the Saris bones system is so easy to use is because it is extremely flexible. You can adjust the height of the clearance AND you can adjust the horizontal travel of the support arms, which comes in handy if you have a bike with weird geometry.
