    Rated 5 out of 5 by Faultless on a 6,000 mile European road trip Recently took this rack on the back of my Ford Freda on a 6,000 mile road trip around Europe. Other than ratcheting up the cables one click when in Estonia I didn't have any concerns with this rack. I chose this rack for two main reasons, a) the security of the steel frame and straps both in terms of being able to survive long trips and improve theft prevention, and b) that when fitted to a campervan it located the bikes below the roof line which helped with aerodynamics and therefore fuel economy and allowed the overall height to remain below 2 metres for easier access on ferries and to car parks. It could be improved by using metal parts in the locks as I was concerned that the plastic parts in the locks could be easily tampered with. 15 September 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by The best rack ever I bought this rack about 8 years ago upon the advice of the bike store owner. It is simply one of the FINEST products of ANY type that I have EVER purchased in my life. It is so easy to place this on my car---I can be ready to take off in only a few minutes. It is solid and secure and I can put 3 bikes on it with complete confidence. I love it as much as I love my bike---and that is really saying something. 14 September 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Simple and robust We are new to biking world and this product was very easy to use and stable to use. 03 September 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Faulty from new out of box Promised my Grand children a trip to the park on their new bikes transported on my new Saris Bones RS3 bike rack, took the day of work to accomplish this, two very unhappy kids had to cancel due to faulty mechanism on bike rack unable to use brand new 1st use out of box, lost a days pay and kids distraught hence poor product rating. Awaiting replacement from Halfords Chilwell Retail Park Beeston Nottingham NG9 6DS fingers crossed, will be OK upon receipt will review product again hopefully with a much higher rating and recommendation. 07 July 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by We are delighted! This Saris rack fits the back of our 2013 Subaru Outback perfectly. It doesn't go near the back door glass window either. So secure on the car we can't believe it- a brilliant design. Easy to take off and on. Worth every penny! 07 June 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Many Bikes, Many Configurations I bought this rack to travel to Acadia National Park. The rack performed solidly, keeping 3 adult mountain bikes solidly locked in for the 6 hour trek. Over the week of biking our group had many different bikes from Cruisers to kids BMX to Adult mountain bikes on this rack all of which tightly attached and strapped on with ease using the the system of pulls and swivel stops. I love this rack. I never felt comfortable with my older aluminum rack which rested on the glass of my Toyota Hatchback. Be sure to latch the straps onto the hinges and not use the spoiler body molding to fasten the straps. There is a bit of play in one of the arms that bothers me a bit as it seems loose and shifts up and down a bit when not loaded. Once everything is on, the bikes rest solidly and the rack stays in place. Sweet piece of equipment. 19 March 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by "Flexible" Bones Rack I bought this rack about 5 years ago. I would buy it again without question. The rack is easy to use and located up on the rear gate of the car. The rack is great in that it does not have lots of straps that you have to keep tightening. The rack was not recommended for my 2010 VW Golf because of the problem with the upper straps coming over the little spoiler at the top of the back window. Apparently the little spoiler was not considered to be strong enough to support the straps. To work around this, I made two wooden blocks that were located at the top of the window and the base of the spoiler (see photos and pardon the dirt!). The straps go over the blocks and distribute a small amount of stress on the glass but most importantly allow the straps to clear the spoiler and not damage the paint. I have had no problems with any window damage. I have put down transparent mylar tape at any place where the wrack contacts paint. Two layers of mylar tape protect the finish very well. Saris has been very helpful in obtaining replacement parts for the horizontal bars and the tie-down straps for the lower parts of the bike. 17 March 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit! We purchased this rack last summer to hold two of our bikes. The fit is perfect and is easy to put on and take off! We would recommend this to users, esp those with a spoiler! 17 March 2015
