Pros Lightweight, fits a wide range of vehicles, does not require front wheel removalEasy tilt release function, durable, fat bike compatible, tool-free installationReasonably priced, highly versatile, solid construction, user-friendly tilt release, comes with locksLightweight, simple, foot pedal tilt mechanismLow loading height, easy tray adjustment, lightweight, tool free removal
Cons Difficult to adjust, direct contact with frame, all plastic construction, no access to rear vehicle compartments, no security features, not intended for speeds over 65 mphHefty, priceySits slightly closer to vehicle than some, some assembly requiredLacks versatility, expensiveHigh price, sticky tilt release handle, cable locks are difficult to use
Bottom Line The Saris Bones 2 will fit a wide range of vehicles, with its adjustable design, but lacks locks or other security featuresThis is the best hitch rack we have ever testedThis rack combines solid performance and a reasonable priceAs the lightest hitch rack we tested, the Sherpa was a favorite for its good looks and simple designA lightweight alternative to other hitch racks, with great adjustability
