Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid equipment! This spare tire bike rack is one solid piece of equipment and I love that it is made in the USA! Installation did not take too long, although I did have to move the mounting plate around a bit before the rack would attach through the center of my spare tire (2004 Honda CRV). The thing that took the longest time was figuring out how to mount two bikes so they would fit in the tire cradles and so the center arm grips would attach effectively. I would recommend a couple of additional photos or a video that demonstrates loading options for two bikes of different makes/sizes. I think the extra examples would help other folks understand the flexibility of this equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my Saris Spare Tire Rack I have an FJ Cruiser and I wasn't going to go for the hitch type of rack and give up opening the rear door. The spare tire rack solved this problem very nicely. Easy adjusting for 2 bikes to strap on quickly and easily. The only negative I have is that, once on, the rack doesn't want to unbolt and come off. The bolt gets dirt on the threads inside the tire mount and won't unscrew. If the mount and the rack receiving port were a little beefier it could be locked on with a hitch pin making removal very easy. Overall, this is the best rack I have seen for this application.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from lack of competition? I've been using this rack a lot for the last 6 months for both road and mountain bikes - its survived some serious Colorado Jeep roads. Its strong and reliable and I give Saris 5 big stars for being the first (and so far only) to market with a tray mounted spare tire rack. Yes, installation is fairly easy - its also VERY easy to cross thread the mounting bolt into the spare tire plate. I give Saris 1 star on their wheel and frame ratchet strap design... the one piece molded plastic solution is a constant struggle. Also the spare tire plate itself seems to be a free-for-all as far as positioning. The spare tire plate on my old Yakima rack was much better designed (although the Yakiima rack itself was disspointing) Overall I recommend this rack - it gets the job done for us Wrangler drives that value being able to use our swing-gates... but the rack could be better. Folding would be great, and a non-fame attaching solution would be be even better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Almost, this product is cheaply made. Gave this rack a try but its going to be returned. Extremely challenging to put two full size bikes on this rack. Requires dropping seats and messing with the handle bars. Tire holders are way too small - looks like they built them to accommodate only road bike tires. everything that could be plastic on this rack is and will brake over time. Saris is trying to be like Thule but came up way short. Don't waste your time with this rack you'll regret buying it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good! OK, just got this and figured I'd be the 1st to review and hopefully this will help someone. Only used this once, but I really like so far. This is the 1st tray style spare tire rack that I've seen. I only want to use the tray type of rack and the spare tire is the only option I have since I don't have a hitch. I have a FJ Cruiser and was using a rooftop rack (so tired of climbing a ladder to get/load my bike). Once I rcv'd the rack, I had no problem with assembling and mounting it to the spare.Took about 15 minutes to configure it to my 29er, then off I went to the trail. Everything seems sturdy and I couldn't be more pleased. Overall, my 1st impressions are this is a solid rack and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Note to Vendor :I have a couple of suggestions. It would be nice to see it fold up toward the car or a better method of taking it off when not in use. Also, maybe some sort of security lock built in. Just sayin :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this rack! This really is the perfect solution for Fat Bikes. I have regular Mountain and road as well and with the additional fat trays they all fit on one rack. Might add that I had to work personally with Saris on a warranty issue from a previous rack. The way they handled it was stellar. Thank you Saris!

Is it easy to remove this rack when you aren't using it, but still leave the mounting plate in place behind the spare tire??

Asked by: hnschmidt
The rack can be removed with a wrench, leaving the mounting plate still secured behind the spare tire.
