Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good fit on 2012 Prius While the Saris site says this will work on a 2012 Prius I disagree. First the included instructions recommend placing the lower feet on the top of the bumper but in that position the upper/3rd arm cannot be positioned over the rear glass. Their on-line fit advice (and their phone customer service) says to place those feet against the license plate - but the printed instructions say that's a bad idea. A bigger problem is that the metal hooks for the side straps do not fit securely around the edge of the Prius hatch. I also find the plastic straps used to secure the bike to the rack are hard to use and way too long. "REIService" has two posts saying it will work - I relied on that as well. Not true in my experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little too hard to use My wife and I are in our mid 60's, and this rack is too difficult to use for us on our Sienna minivan. The first problem is that the bikes have to be raised too far off the ground: it hurts my wrists and my wife can't lift them that high. The second problem is the plastic holding straps and buckles that keep the bike in place on the rack: they are very stiff, and require pulling away from me to tighten, which is rather difficult; seems like you could have come up with a better design for the straps and buckles. So this might have been an acceptable rack if we were younger, but it is not a good bike rack for us at our age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very secure I bought this last year at the beginning of the summer and used it all the time. Love it. It holds two bikes very securely. I have a Prius that it was not recommended for but I looked up on the Internet and found some one who had used it on their Prius and there was a photo of how it was placed. I did the same and it works great. ( the bottom arms don't rest on the bumper) I love that it is light, folds up well and that the straps are marked as to where they go! The only thing that can be a little tough is undoing the ratcheted straps that secure the bikes. It takes a bit of getting used to. But it does keep them very secure on the rack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Domane difficulties I am familiar with the Bones rack from my job at a bicycle shop. Customers are typically with the purchase. My complaint has to do with the frame design of the Trek Domane. It is difficult to secure the strap over the top tube near the seatpost due to the size of the top tube and the location of the exit of the rear brake housing from the frame. i recently had to use an extra strap to secure my bike because I could not get the rack strap secured. I was able with some difficulty to secure the other more forward strap around the top tube as well as the seat tube stabilizing strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and sturdy I have used our Bones 2 once. We bought it for a 1200 mile trip from Tennessee to Vermont. I installed it once the day before we left, and then again the next day. The second time took about 5 minutes at most. We then checked it throughout about 200 miles of travel. I tightened the straps a bit, just to reassure myself. They really did not need it. Eventually, I forgot about it. It did not move, and the bike was perfectly stable even after the 850 mile drive on the second day, which included gusty winds and very windy roads through the Adirondacks. I cannot compare it to other racks because this is my first. I cannot, however, imagine a better one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable, Sturdy, and Very Easy to Use I bought a Bones two-bike rack this summer shortly before driving across the country with an ancient, steel-framed bike firmly strapped to it. I have a 2007 Mazda 3 hatchback, and the rack worked like a charm. It fit just right, and the calibrated dials on the hinge meant that if I needed to remove it to get something out of my very packed truck, reattaching it and then the bike was no big deal. I never heard any wobbling, shaking, or flapping from the back, and the rack remained tight every time I checked it, even through snow and rain. I was afraid it the straps or posts might damage the spoiler or the bumper, but the finish looks as good as new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This rack was recommended to my by a fellow cyclist who works at my local bike shop. I ride a 29er hardtail and it fits this rack well. I also have a 26" mountain bike and have hauled them both together with no problem. Rack is sturdy. I use a velcro strap to cinch up the front tires and keep the bars steady. Once the bikes are in the rack you can focus on the road because they will not budge. The rack is adjustable for about any car. I have a small compact and a large sedan and it fits both perfectly. This is the only rack I will ever need. I can have the rack on in 5 minutes and off in 5 minutes making it easy to lock in the trunk when I'm on all day rides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does the job The product does what it is supposed to do. It does take a few minutes to set it up correctly. I also do not like how you have to tie the straps around themselves after you tighten the straps. The biggest design flaw that I've found, and it's honestly more of an annoyance than anything else, is tightening the rear-most plastic strap that goes around the seat tube. It is located in such a way that when you pull the plastic tab through, there's not enough space on the other side to pull it through without it getting caught on the rack itself. Other than that, it is stable, well-built and does the job it was intended to do.

Unfortunately Thule does not have a solution for any of their trunk mounted bike racks for your vehicle. Yakima does however have a solution. The Yakima KingJoe and QuickBack series will fit your 2014 Ford Escape.

Will this model work on a 2008 Honda Accord with a rear spoiler?

Asked by: ritagrams
The Bones 2 will work on the 4-door sedan, but the lower hooks need to be replaced with Hatch Huggers (available directly from the Saris web site). The 2-door will also work. The Hatch Huggers are not needed.
