At the Trek Bicycle Store, bikes are our passion. We love riding them, working on them, talking about them and sometimes we love just staring at them. In our stores, you'll find a friendly and accommodating staff trained to put your needs above all else. We'll listen to you and do our best to send you home with a smile on your face.
The Trek Bicycle Stores offer a huge selection of bikes for the whole family. Whether you are looking for a neighborhood cruiser or a cutting edge race bike, or even a safe and reliable kids bike - we have just the right bike for you.
The Bike Beam connects to your bicycle's seatpost and stem to simulate a standard top tube. It allows you to carry unique bicycles including full-suspension, women's and children's bikes and those with oversize tubing on your trunk or hitch-mounted carrier.
After using the Saris Bike Beam one time, the bike seat clamp end wiggled its way out of the dovetail plastic piece that assists the two clamp ends in supporting each other when in the closed position. This meant that the weight of the bike on the seat end was really resting on just one side of the clamp closer end due to the way the clamp positioned itself under the seat.
Also, there is a nut that holds the clamp together that put a gouge after only one use in a plastic piece that is under the bike seat.
I returned the Saris product to the store and exchanged for the other brand they carry, a Yakima, that has a different design. Haven't tried it yet, but seems like it should fit our setup better.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
