    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for (my) purpose They should rename this the Saris Bare Bones... Thought £40 was pretty cheap when I bought it but it feels like no more than £10 worth of kit. Surprisingly fiddly to fit on a Mercedes 220 CDi estate. Wouldn't even attempt it without heavily covering the contact points with electrical tape. When mounted, the carrier fouls the rear windscreen wiper and the bike itself obscures the number plate to an extent that I would think is illegal. While I don't doubt that the 'physics' of the thing mean that it works, every component feels very flimsy and potentially snappable - for example, if fitting in a hurry having removed it at a service station or whatever. Whole structure felt wobbly with a 7.5kg carbon road bike, so I dread to think what it would be like with anything heavier. Would I use it to take a kid's bike to an MTB track five miles away? Probably. Would I use it to take my carbon road bike from Kent to the South of France? No.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Damage to car Its cheap and cheerful but... and trust me on this. It will damage your car no matter what you do. I followed the instructions to the letter and even listened to other users reviews about tying down where necessary but the fact is it does have some movement on the black pads which sit on your paintwork, there is no avoiding this. Your paintwork WILL get damaged, don't say you were not warned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No fuss single bike rack Once set up very straight forward to take on and off. Fits the Ford Fiesta 2003-2008 model ok (less spoiler) just remember to pop out rear wiper fuse just in case!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for your bike Great easy cycle carrier, if you just want to get out for a ride. No messing around attaching to your car. Mine fits perfectly on a DS3.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Saris Solo 1-Bike carrier Bought this model as I had a need for a single bike carrier for short journeys and to be honest after over a year of using that is all it is suitable for. Its good points are ease of attachment and ease of storage off the car. It's fairly stable on the car but has a tendency to move around and the mounting pads do lift away from the body of the vehicle. This I think is due to the fixed format of the carrier body. Extra bungees or straps are advisable to stop the bike moving and scratching your car and with these fitted it is fairly usable. Wouldn't buy again having experienced it however.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bike carried 280 miles so far This product is reasonable for occasional use. To ensure my pedal did no hit the bodywork of my car I had to remove the pedal nearest the car. On my first journey I had to leave the motorway once to check that the bike and rack were secure as one of the black pads lifted off the car in response to a strong cross wind. However all straps were still tight. You need bungees to wrap around the front wheel and main bike frame to stop the front wheel and handlebars from hitting the car. Also a bungee on the pedal and frame can stop the crank from rotating when you are on the move. When the Saris is off the bike it doesn't take up much room. So this product is for the occasional use only , it is pretty affordable, time and care is required in setting it up on your car with the bike to avoid damaging your car, and it packs away without taking up too much space.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this product! I'm really impressed with this bike rack. It took sometime to install it initially as we took someone else's advice and used gaffa tape to protect the paintwork where the hooks attach. But once we had the bike on and tightened the straps, it looked good. I was a little nervous driving for the first time (I live in the hills, lots of windy roads and pot holes) but the bike was SOLID on the back of the car. It did not move. I attached it to my Skoda Yeti and it fit perfectly (but don't forget to turn off your automatic rear window wipers!).
