Best car rack for its value

Pros We purchased the Bones rack for our Volvo XC60 and it turned out to be very easy to install and take down. It was study with our 3 bikes.

Cons with our 2 children's bikes, it ended up scratching the frame badly bc it doesnt provide enough clearance. Also only after a few times using it, the inner plastic on one of the bones has started to come off. I'm not sure if this will affect the use but it leaves doubts in my mind about the long term quality

Bad for long trips

This rack did not work well for a long road trip. With 3 bikes there was a lot of rubs on the bikes no matter how I adjusted them. Eventually I had taped some padding in between the bikes. I wont put 3 on it again. Also with the weight of 3 bikes it ended up pushing the plastic bumper skin of my subaru down about an inch and left a lot of rub marks on the trunk. If you get this I recommend only carrying 2 bikes. With 3 its spaced to close and weighs to much for the bumper.

I once had to borrow a bike rack from a friend, and it was this very model. I quickly purchased one of my own because of the solid feel and easy mountingdismounting of the rack. It also has the ability to fit three of my vehicles, Saturn Ion, Nissan Sentra, and A Nissan Pathfinder. A great rack at a very fair price.

The ease of use is what we like the best. The straps fit nice and snug so there is no worry when carrying our bikes.

A very convenient simple and efficient bike rack but it ruined my paint job on my trunk!!
by JGardner

The bones 3 trunk mount rack is a very durable rack. It is aesthetically pleasing, lightweight, very simple to mount, with many adjustments available for proper balance and stability. I use it for two trek cyclocross bikes (50lbs combined) and it hardly moved on a 700 mile trip in varying weather conditions,but it did move. I am a fan of this rack by theory and would almost still recommend it, but now the troubles. My paint job is ruined on my brand new black car. I say ruined meaning it is scratched and rub marks where ALL the attachment points were. Literally every point. The unfortunate thing is this issue is inevitable. The trunk flexes. I now am unable to use my trunk rack unless I want to sacrifice the beauty of my car. As a sidenote I drive a black 2013 kia optima.

The Saris Bones rack did just what i needed it to do,, very well.

I purchased the Saris Bones rack to ride GOBA. We took the wifes Toyota instead of my V10 F250 for obvious reasons. From Tampa, Fl to Dayton, Ohio and back with 2 bikes on the rack and not a problem. It was easy to assemble. After assembly (5 minutes) it only takes a few minutes to set up or collapse . At first I thought the plastic screws would not do the job. However after setting it up I saw that the teeth on the arms and barrel interlock. I realized steel screws were not needed. You don't need to over tighten the screws since the arms and barrel interlock and as such the arms won't slip out of place.

Would I buy another one, I don't think so. After using this rack I won't NEED to buy anoher one. I believe this one will last a long time. Would I recommend this product, absolutly. The designers put a lot of thought into this rack system.
