Product Description :
So close, yet so out–of–the–way. Gear of the Year recognized by Outside Magazine, the Cycle–On series of racks raises the bar in the industry by lowering the rack platform. From road bikes to full–suspension mountain bikes, no more will you have to wrestle, heft and hurl your sweet ride onto awkward and ill–designed roof–racks. Simply wheel it up to the rear of your vehicle, lift it a few inches off the ground, and set it in the secure wheel trays which accommodate 20″–29″ tires. Cycle–On takes care of the rest, so you can take care of more important things–like mapping out your next ride! We raised the bar in another way with the Cycle–On Series, by giving you a ratcheting arm that secures your bike in one simple motion, without touching the frame. The ratcheting arm easily holds the front wheel in the contoured trays, while the rear clamps wrap around the rear wheel to keep it steady and perfectly immobile. Plus, no part of the rack makes contact with the bike frame, so there’s never any rubbing or chipped paint to worry about. And when not in use the rack can be folded flat against your vehicle. With the Cycle–On you get the added peace of mind of an integrated locking hitch bolt and locking bike cable, so no matter where you take your bikes, you know they’re coming home with you. Like everything we build at Saris, the Cycle–On series of racks is made in the USA to be tough, safe and stylish. Strong enough to hold up to 60 pounds, the rack is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. And with an optional add–on kit that increases the number of bikes you can carry from 2 up to 4, the Cycle–On rack really can meet your needs for a lifetime. The only thing it can’t do is help you hide the smile on your face as you watch other people struggle to get their bikes on a roof rack. Maybe you should let them in on the Cycle–On secret..

PRODUCT REVIEWS :
Bought the 2 bicycle hauler for a trip behind my bus RV to Niagara Falls, NY from Central Florida. Had it opened and installed in about 1 hour (I’m a little slow when I do things)…..Put My Specialized bicycle and my wife’s Giant onto the hauler without a hitch, everything fit perfectly. Put a cover purchased here locally out of Florida over the two bikes…Made the trip to Niagara falls and back without ANY problems….Highly recommend this product!
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. I have owned my Cycle On rack since September 2003 . I needed to get the bike off the roof and make things easier toload AND safer for my garage door. Putting a bike on the rack takes about 10 seconds. The rack is so easy to install in the 2″ reciever, it takes one bolt and a 3/4″ socket wrench and under 5 minutes. I usually leave it on the truck during the Spring,Summer, and Fall , but I only put it on in the Winter when I go riding.
The only issue I have ever had was leaving it on for a few Winters when I first got it. I never took it off. The road salt corroded the small torsion springs inside of the quick release buttons, and the arms wouldn’t lock down any more. I had to buy the entire locking arm assemblies from the local bike shop (still, it was cheaper than a whole new rack.) I also have stripped and painted the wheel trays because my muddy MTB tires rubbed the coating off. I just primed and painted them black and good to go.
In all I would definitely buy this rack again if I had to. I would love to see a tempered aluminum version so it is lighter. The 2 bike carrier does have some weight to it. It’s strong.

It carried 2 bikes to the Iron Man competition in Coeur d’Alene with no vibrating,
easy access, and total security. Really — THE BEST THERE IS!
