Day 325: Saris Bones 2 bike rack

24 11 2010

Today after work, we loaded the car, put the bikes on the trunk rack and headed out of town for Thanksgiving. Of course, Carrick likes to tease me about my packing skills. I always pack like we’ll be gone for a week (really we’ll be back home tomorrow night), but I figure you never know what you might need, right? Anyway, as we drove down the highway, it occurred to me how much I like our bike rack (and no, the company is not paying me to endorse their product. I’m just a happy customer). Last summer we bought a Saris 2-bike trunk rack. Before buying the Saris rack, we had a cheap bike rack and before long, realized you really get what you pay for. After the bikes almost fell off the cheap rack as we flew down the highway, we realized it was time for a new one.

The Saris rack is sturdy, secure, easy to put on the car and simple to adjust for either one of our cars. It’s nice to strap the bikes on and not worry about them falling off while driving down the road. The bikes have survived with no problems through various trips through several states: Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia, Virginia and Ohio. It seems like so often we all hear about how crappy a product is, so I thought it was worth sharing how good the Saris bike racks are. If you’re looking for a sturdy, easy-to-use rack, I highly recommend this one.

Tomorrow we plan to take our bikes over to Lexington to ride the Legacy Trail that I mentioned recently. Assuming the weather prediction for 62 degrees and 50% chance of rain. Today was cold and rainy.  Not my favorite kind of cycling weather.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you have a great day!

Life’s a journey. Enjoy the ride!

Thanks for visiting.

I’ve sold DOZENS of those Saris Bones bike racks over the years. They are popular for a very good reason, as you have discovered. They work. Well. Every time.
