Designed with everything in mind.

With ratchet straps that keep your bike secure to the rack arms, exclusive antisways and articulated rubber feet to protect the finish on your vehicle, Bones ensures that nothing gets damaged in transport. The vinylcoated hooks strap securely to the car with springbuckles, which makes installing Bones quick and easy.The arched design fits practically any vehicle-from sedans to minivans-even most cars with a spoiler. And because it's a trunkmounted rack, your bikes are accessible and easy to put in place. No overhead lifting, twisting, balancing or hefting required, so you can save your energy for the ride.Constructed from heavyduty, 100% recyclable plastic, Bones is the strongest and mostenvironmentally friendlyrack on the market.Injection-moldedarms and legs will never rust and can support up to two bikes with ease, separating them on different levels for the ultimate assurance that they won't rub or touch during transport.All of our racks are built in Madison, WI and we're so confident that this is the only rack you'll ever need that we've covered it by a limited lifetime warranty.We thought of everything when we designed Bones.

I bought this bike rack with very high expectations after returning a
cheap bike rack I got for Christmas and went to the bike store to get
something I knew would work. If your having trouble find a bike rack
that doesn't sit on top of your spoiler and fits over it with ease this
is the rack for you!

Easily adapts to any car with minor adjustments. I can take it from my car then put it on the wife's car within a few minutes.

It comes with stickers to put in the adjustment cogs to remind you where the legs and arms need to be placed for your vehicle.

My
car is a 1999 Grand Prix Coupe. I had issues getting the side strap to
mount up near the spoiler because the straps would keep sliding. Upon
researching I found my car is not found on the Saris website for being
compatible with this rack. This is not the case. I just moved the straps
off the top of the trunk down near the tail light area and all is well!

The
instructions are just a suggestion on how to mount the rack to your
car. Sometimes you got to think outside of the box and mount it the way
the rack is most secure.

If you have a 1997-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix do not hesitate to buy this rack it will fit great!

_______________________________________________________

One
suggestion. Buy a stretch-lock bungy strap to secure your wheel so it
doesn't flop around like
this.http://findnsave.charlotteobserver.com/Product/7220533/24-in-Stretch-Lock-Bungee-Cord

Also
suspension bikes, women's bikes, and some other bikes will require a
additional piece that attaches to the stem to the seatpost to secure the
bikes to the rack. Called a Bike Beam available at Saris.com or any
dealer that sells Saris products.

Price Payed: $133.00
Recommended? Yes
Pros: Streamline, easy to setup and adjust, well made,fits over my spoiler unlike most of the cheaper bike racks.
Cons: Was kinda hard to figure out where the side straps needed to mount on my car.
Synopsis: Awesome Universal Bike Rack That Really Will Adapt To Any Vehicle.
