Product Details

Saris Freedom 2-Bike

Transport all types of bikes with Saris’ Freedom 2-Bike hitch rack. Its innovative design adjusts to fit most bikes and sizes, including kids’ and even some recumbents, thanks to the adjustability of its center upright support. It uses quick-adjust trays and ratcheting straps to secure two bikes of up to 35 pounds each, and loading is made easy by the low tray height. The center upright support even tilts down to allow trunk access. Plus, the rack itself only weighs 21 pounds, making it easy to take on and off.

    Great Rack for Subaru Outback

          I needed a rack that I would feel comfortable driving to/from New York to Florida. After much research and having a trailer hitch installed on my 2014 Subaru Outback, I chose the Saris Freedom 2 as it is ideal for carrying different types of bikes securely without concerns for scratching or damaging the bikes or your vehicle. The rack fits snugly into a 2 inch hitch using the provided adaptor. This was one specific concern I had. I wanted a 2 inch hitch for more flexibility and thought a bike rack built specifically for a 2 inch hitch would be more stable. However, I found the Freedom 2 mounts easily and securely. Be sure to tighten the hitch pin with a wrench. I also purchased the Saris locking hitch pin and use a Schlage locking cable to secure the bikes to my hitch. I realize these are just deterrents to theft but provides the security I primarily need. Most important the bikes can be loaded quickly and the ratchet straps minimize bike movement. The only additional feature I would have liked was having the rack fold up more when not in use. I added some yellow and black reflective tape to the rack to add visibility at night. I would certainly recommend this rack.

                Bought about a month ago and it has worked perfectly. Only sugesstion is that it be designed in the future with a quick connect hitch option so one won't need to bolt and unbolt each time to install/remove rack. Maybe only requiring bolt when travelling longer distances for a more secure connection. Otherwise, great rack!

                      We bought our Freedom 2-bike about a month ago and it has performed well. Assemby was easy. It took a little time and a couple tries to find the best position (bike direction and wheel carrier postitions) for carrying the bikes. Now that we have the bike position on the rack set.... loading and unloading the bikes is easy. Mounting the rack on the truck and loading the bikes can be done in a few minutes. We just returned from a 800 mile trip and had no problems at all. The rack held steady and sturdy even over some pretty rough roads.

                            Takes very little time to install it to back of auto. Excellent design for securing the bikes on the rack. No movement. There is a swivel to the veritical components so you can access the back of an SUV, as example, without removing the rack, another favorable design consideration. The only initial challenge was the plastic insert for larger sized hitches. The plastic insert doesn't secure to the rack so if it falls off as you insert the post into the hitch it can be minor irritation. Ther Product came highly recommended from the bike dealership. They use the racks on their own vehicles so I got an immediate demonstration before purchase.

                                      The assembly was easy, the hitch looked good on the back of my fifth wheel trailer, if it wasn't for someone passing me on the interstate I would have lost one new Trek bike. The strap on the upright came undone, the frame is scratched and the chain guard broke off. Strap came undone on a 2nd trip but a bunge cord saved the day. Look on Craig's list for this one!

                                            Could not get 2 road bikes on it. Handbars hit, no matter how you arranged the bikes.
