Re: Platform style hitch bike rack

I have a Trek dual sport, nothing too fancy. I use it more as a road bike and it works pretty well for me. Now I may need to upgrade my bike with the new rack though lol.

Re: Platform style hitch bike rack

Anyone riding on 27.5" wheels, I have a 29er and enjoy how it handles up hills and obstacles, just wanted feedback on the newest edition to the endless amount of options already available

Nice, is that the cycle on pro? I was considering that one too but it's not listed on the Saris website, looks nice though! I wonder if they discontinued it?

Have the same Saris. Yes, it's been discontinued. Yes it weighs a ton. Wish it would have drop down option like the newer racks have.

Look at the KŁat video - the rack will actually tilt about 15 degrees down to allow opening of the lift gate/tailgate with bikes on it. Not a big deal if your lift gate glass opens, but on the '14s that was eliminated.
