Let’s admit it: bike racks aren’t usually all that exciting. Getting your bike to and from the trailhead is a nuisance at best and most of us are just looking for something that gets our bikes there in one piece. Fortunately the folks at Saris have put a lot of thought into their bike transport racks and have incorporated some cool features in keeping with the latest MTB and economic trends.
Bigger wheels: The Saris Thelma is a lightweight hitch mounted rack that features an adjustable wheel cup for standard or 29er wheels at the flip of a switch. The universal hitch mount fits 1 1/4″ and 2″ receivers which is great for folks with smaller vehicles.
Heavier DH rigs: The Saris Cycle On is a heavy-duty rack that can hold two bikes at up to 60 pounds each! The wheel grabs are 29er-compatible and slide to accommodate longer wheel base bikes. Both the Thelma and the Cycle On are a good choice for bikes with sloping top tubes.
Thin and versatile is in: the T-Bones is a lightweight hitch rack that weighs just 10 pounds for the 2 bike model. Since it’s lightweight it’s easy to bring the rack inside where the rack doubles as a home storage system using the optional stand. In this economy, multi-function is in and the T-Bone gives you a transport and storage rack system that works!
