Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.Rated 5 out of 5 by Jigby saris Gran Fondo 2 Really happy with this product I've had bike racks before that hold bikes across the back of the car but this is the first one I've owned that I have felt really confident that the bikes are safely attached to the car. The rack feels firmly stuck to the boot hatch and the bikes are very solidly held in place. Did the journey from Manchester to Dorset last week with two heavy mountain bikes on it and I felt able to concentrate on driving without constantly checking out of the back window to make sure they were still there. Fits on both my Golf Estate and the family Peugeot Partner van. 04 August 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Anon1966 Great product for 2 bikes Great product. Fits VW Tiguan perfectly. The only issue is that it only takes 2 bikes. 24 July 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Greddymatt Great product, be carefully during assembly This has to be the best bike rack I've ever owned, it's perfect for my stumpjumper evo full susser and other bikes which have odd shaped frames as the wheel mounting negates those contact issues altogether. Need to be very careful doing the bottom crossbar nuts up as they spin easily in the plastic mount so use a flat blade screwdriver to hold them in place till tight. 04 October 2015Rated 5 out of 5 by FoxPigs Fits a Mercedes Sprinter Campervan I bought one of these for my Mercedes Sprinter Campervan. It fits nicely on the left door meaning I can still use the other for access. I did change the top straps to hatch huggers to take the pressure off the metal door frame. I use a SeaSucker Trunk Cable Anchor to get around the security issue. Bikes do move around a little but nothing to worry about. Great build quality, I would recommend. 05 August 2015Rated 4 out of 5 by Taido Good but some quality issue Good : attractive design; adaptable for whole range of different cars Bad: Parts dos not apporar to have been well assembled.us manufacturer makes impressive quality claims but could be better assembled (in Italy). Mine has a deffective knurled hand screw. 23 July 2015Rated 5 out of 5 by jflvcc Worth the money I recently changed cars to a 2011 Ford Fiesta and found my old carrier couldn't go on the hatchback properly. The Gran Fondo is much better as the bikes go on perpendicular to the back of the car, so there's no risk of metal on metal scratches. Once the carrier is put onto the car it's very easy to put the bikes on it - just stick the wheel in and do up the cable tie. The bike will flex a little from side to side in the wind, but don't worry - it can't fall out. 11 June 2015Rated 4 out of 5 by helva From Equinox to Prius Got this rack because it fit both a Toyota Prius C and a Chevy Equinox. i know! I was amazed too. Easy to put on both cars. Hangs on garage wall otherwise. Looks cool and get lots of comments. Yes the bikes sway, but they are secure. Only negative is when larger framed bike on rack on Prius and going up sudden steep grade (driveway and parking lot entrance), I think the tire may have touched! YIKES, so if you can demo it before purchase, do it. Also, zip locks securing the bike wheels to frame have been cut into by spokes on tires...worried it will be weak there and finish tearing. Also worried the plastic material of the zips is that which easily becomes fragile and breaks.(had snowboard bindings do so at the top of a run, start of the day. :-( ) 23 May 2015Rated 4 out of 5 by Marcia Good rack, with minor alterations I use this rack on a 2009 Toyota Venza. I had trouble finding a rack to even fit my car (as I have no trailer hitch) that would carry two bikes, and this fits the bill. I am pleased with the rack overall. I did have to purchase a separate part from Saris to use with my Venza. You can't use the metal clips on the window on the side (there's no metal around the sides of my rear window), so I had to buy different straps with little foam cylinders to go inside the window. It would have been nice if those had been included. As another reviewer noted, no matter how I crank down those bottom straps, they keep coming undone from the bottom of the hatch and flopping around. I don't think it makes the rack less stable, because it's really being held in place by the top and side straps, but it's really annoying. The other modification I had to make, and this isn't really the fault of Saris, is that, because I have an Electra Townie, it doesn't fit perfectly in the rack. Because it's a pedal forward design, the bike has a longer base than a regular bike. It rests _almost on_ on the bottom holder but the included strap wouldn't quite fit. I bought a small nylon buckle-style dog collar, and it works well. My car is kind of tall, although it's not as tall as a regular SUV, and I'm 5'5". My bike and my son's bikes are not super lightweight, and it took some time before I was very good at getting those bikes up there. It can be kind of unwieldy and a bit of a knuckle-buster, especially for a woman, to load. I think I've gotten pretty smooth at it now, and it's a good opportunity to work on that upper body strength, but if you've got a bad back, you want to think twice. I don't want this to sound like a negative review...it's not. I do like the Gran Fondo, and I don't know what I would have done without it. Not have a bike rack at all, I guess. It looks cool, it fits my car, I feel confident that my bikes aren't going to fly off the back of the car on the highway, and I can load it myself. But it wasn't pop it on the car and done. 25 July 2013
