"I've had cheap cycle racks in the past but I'm glad I spent 10% more as the Saris rack works well. Easy to assemble (many aren't) and with clear instructions, well made, and strong enough to carry 3 bikes, it has so far done the job well. Only criticism is the clips come without any rubberised protection for your car's paint work, which is a let-down. But it only takes a few minutes to add some gaffer tape and you're ready to go. A big plus is that it folds down easily and goes into the boot while you're riding, so it'll still be there when you come back. Worth waiting a couple of days for delivery to nearest Halford's store."

Pros: light weight, easy to fit, will fit most vehicles, sturdy
Cons: straps slip, will not carry oversize tubed bikes
"Good sturdy product, was apprehensive carrying 3 bikes with it being so light weight but it is very strong and rigid and easily carried 3 bikes."

"Does the job well considering how cheap it is. My only gripe is that the metal clips that attach to the car are not covered in a protective foam meaning they will scratch the car paintwork- I have had to wrap them in gaffer tape to protect it. Other than this it is a solid rack that folds and fits in the boot easily. It should be noted 2 people are needed to attach it properly."

Pros: fitted a saloon car
"Spent a long time researching the best bike transporter to fit my alfa romeo 159 (saloon). I didn't want a roof rack, as our bikes are too heavy to lift and I didn't want to spend a fortune.
This carrier fitted the bill - it's good quality and the instructions were easy to follow.
I felt confident driving with one bike on the carrier, would have for two, but we struggled to get 3 on.
The carrier came off easily and left no marks.
Overall a good purchase and once we get new lighter bikes I'm sure we'll be using it for all 3.
N.B. Great delivery service from Halfords, arrived within the 5 days timescale given."
