Transport all types of bikes with Saris’ Freedom 4-Bike hitch rack. Its innovative design adjusts to fit most bikes and sizes, including kids’ and even some recumbents, thanks to the adjustability of its center upright supports. It uses quick-adjust trays and ratcheting straps to secure four bikes of up to 35 pounds each, and loading is made easy by the low tray height. The center upright supports even tilt down to allow trunk access.

We got this right before vacation to go on our 2012 Honda Pilot. We brought 2 mountain bikes (men's and women's), a 10 speed racing bike, and a little baby bike with training wheels. They all fit great with no problems. The rack adjusts to any size bike with ease. The only think I don't like about it is the plastic knobs. They are hard to tighten and loosen. I feel a metal knob would improve the product a lot. Other than that everything was easy to use and quick to load and unload bikes. Bike did not move around and were tightly fastened. The rack folds upward when no bikes are on so it doesn't stick out so much. I would recommend this product. Worth the money. Sorry I forgot to take an image when the bikes were loaded.
Easy to put on vehicle and folds up nicely. Very durable.
This is the 3d Saris rack I've owned, and, like the others, it's great! Sturdy, simple to install, simple to use -- if the rack is on my car, I can have 4 bikes ready in less than 10 minutes. You do have to set it up for the bikes you are carrying - adjust the wheel holders and vertical supports, but as long as you carry the same bike(s) each time, all you need to do is lift the bike into place and strap in - no effort, little time. The bikes ride steady and stable. My only negative on the rack probably cannot be avoided - it is a little heavy and I live on the 2d floor, so must hump it down whenever I go someplace with my bikes. But, on the other hand, it probably could not be as steady or stable if it were not so heavy duty. There is little to maintain or tighten to ensure continued utility. I can't say enough and, given the opportunity, extol my rack's virtues constantly. Only 2 days ago another rider observed me taking our bikes off the rack and, impressed by the ease, gave me the opportunity to plug my Saris rack and Saris' great customer support.
Suer stable 4 bike rack. Really easy to adjust to fit any bike frame. I have a 29inch mens mountain bike, a 20 inch girls bike, a womens hybrid bike, and a 24 inch girls bike on mine right now. It fits all shapes. This is way easier and less noisy going down the road than my previous 4 bike rack that hangs all from the frame.
Easily fits 4 bikes: Mountain bike, women's hybrid bike, and 2 kids bikes (one with training wheels).
This is the sturdiest rack I have seen for 4 bikes. It is simple, strong, and durable. It provides the perfect amount of adjustability to accommodate all different bike types and sizes. Rating would have been 5 stars but one of the washers on the posts broke as I was tightening it during installation.
After YEARS of using racks from one of the big two (one rhymes with Tool and the other with, uh, Rackima?), and being somewhat disappointed, we decided to try something different. We were unfamiliar with the Saris brand and a little hesitant at first. After doing research and finding a whole mess of positive, we decided to give the Freedom 4 a try. The rack comes roughly 70% assembled and only requires the two cross bars and two uprights be bolted to the main beam. Fifteen to twenty minutes tops. As easy as assembly was, initial bike setup took considerably longer. Its not difficult, it just takes time to make sure all your bikes are where they should be. Once this is done, they can be put on and taken off the rack in a couple minutes (makes pre and post ride ridiculously easy).
I had a two bike rack from saris until my children's bikes no longer fit in the trunk. I now have the four bike rack and am just as pleased. Well made and stable. I would, and do, recommend them to anyone willing to listen to me.
Tighten this unit up so that it fits ALOT better inside the 2" receiver hitch. Too much play - even with their special part that is very hard to come by if you lose the first one... The minute you hit dirt; it bounces all around and the bikes become very loose in their saddles.
I have had my freedom 2-bike for a little over a year now, and I want to say that I really like it. It's worked well, I can open my hitch with it on (and no bikes loaded) which is why I wanted this model, and it overall gets the job done. I've used it a fair amount over the past year, and on it's most recent voyage something happenned that is causing me to rate this lower than I would like to. On the inside of the square tubing that goes into your hitch receiver there is a nut kinda maybe welded on. This is what allows the bolt to thread into it and secure very nicely to your hitch. On the last trip I went on (washboard dirt roads), that nut broke free from whatever was securing it to the inside of the tubing. Unfortunately what this meant was that I had no way to un-thread the bold, and consequently could not remove the rack from the car. It does appear that somewhere along the jostling the bold had cross threaded as well, whether that was my doing or the rocking back and forth of the rack once the nut broke free. I had to do quite a bit of surgery to remove the bolt without damaging either the hitch receiver on my car or the bike rack itself. 6 hours later, alot of blood and sweat, mission accomplished. I really like this rack, and I like how (when it's functional) it secures itself against your hitch receiver for stability, but the way it's designed creates some pretty ridiculous issues that are causing me to question if I want to try to repair this at all now, or if I just want to scrap it and find a new rack. overall, a little disappointed saris :(
