Product Details

Saris Freedom Spare Tire 2-Bike

Transport all types of bikes with Saris' Freedom Spare Tire 2-bike rack. Designed to fit all spare tires (left-, right-, or center-positioned), this innovative rack 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. Loading is made easy by the low tray height. The center upright support even tilts down to stay out of the way when not in use.

    Love my Saris Spare Tire Rack

          I have an FJ Cruiser and I wasn't going to go for the hitch type of rack and give up opening the rear door. The spare tire rack solved this problem very nicely. Easy adjusting for 2 bikes to strap on quickly and easily. The only negative I have is that, once on, the rack doesn't want to unbolt and come off. The bolt gets dirt on the threads inside the tire mount and won't unscrew. If the mount and the rack receiving port were a little beefier it could be locked on with a hitch pin making removal very easy. Overall, this is the best rack I have seen for this application.

                I've been using this rack a lot for the last 6 months for both road and mountain bikes - its survived some serious Colorado Jeep roads. Its strong and reliable and I give Saris 5 big stars for being the first (and so far only) to market with a tray mounted spare tire rack. Yes, installation is fairly easy - its also VERY easy to cross thread the mounting bolt into the spare tire plate. I give Saris 1 star on their wheel and frame ratchet strap design... the one piece molded plastic solution is a constant struggle. Also the spare tire plate itself seems to be a free-for-all as far as positioning. The spare tire plate on my old Yakima rack was much better designed (although the Yakiima rack itself was disspointing) Overall I recommend this rack - it gets the job done for us Wrangler drives that value being able to use our swing-gates... but the rack could be better. Folding would be great, and a non-fame attaching solution would be be even better.

                      OK, just got this and figured I'd be the 1st to review and hopefully this will help someone. Only used this once, but I really like so far. This is the 1st tray style spare tire rack that I've seen. I only want to use the tray type of rack and the spare tire is the only option I have since I don't have a hitch. I have a FJ Cruiser and was using a rooftop rack (so tired of climbing a ladder to get/load my bike). Once I rcv'd the rack, I had no problem with assembling and mounting it to the spare.Took about 15 minutes to configure it to my 29er, then off I went to the trail. Everything seems sturdy and I couldn't be more pleased. Overall, my 1st impressions are this is a solid rack and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Note to Vendor :I have a couple of suggestions. It would be nice to see it fold up toward the car or a better method of taking it off when not in use. Also, maybe some sort of security lock built in. Just sayin :)
