Riding bicycles is all about freedom. But loading and unloading your bikes to and from cumbersome bike racks can make you feel like a slave. So free yourself from the racks that bind with the Saris Freedom Hitch Mount Bike Rack. Featuring a tray design, the Saris Freedom is easy to load and unload. And Saris' proprietary Cuscino (Italian for pillow) rubber-lined frame cradles baby your bikes while holding them secure.
What the name doesn't tell you is that it means all bike types and sizes fit—even recumbents (requires Long Wheelbase Bar, sold separately). The easy-to-adjust hold-downs and ratcheting straps keep bikes secure, while the rugged injection-molded wheel trays keep bikes safe and damage free.
Designed to work with 2" standard hitch receivers, the Saris Freedom hitch mounted bike rack easily slips right into your hitch. The rack features a foot-pedal that tilts it away from your tailgate for easy cargo access, and folds it up to the vehicle when not in use. And for added confidence, Saris builds your Freedom Hitch Mount Bike Rack in the USA, and they back it with a Lifetime Warranty.

Solid rack for hauling a variety of bikes. Easy to use once set up for your particular bikes. Initial setup was time consuming, as position of each bike is related to the position of adjacent bikes. Careful not to over loosen the sliding wheel trays-nuts are not captured and will fall out the bottom. Handles HEAVY old ladies Schwinn coaster, full squish 26" MTB, 24" girl 7sp, and 20" boy coaster with no bike-bike contact.

Before i had a regular 3 bike rack, always a mess to put them on, the bikes were rubbing at each other sometimes scratching the frames. Now with the Saris Freedom 4 bike, I can fit 4 bicycles perfect!!, no wobbling, super sturdy design and according to other reviews it is lifetime warrantied!!. My only concern is about the length of the rack, do I need to add small tail lights?? So far I installed reflective lights.

Just returned from a bike riding trip with friends and the Saris Freedom bike rack was the hit of the trip. Many others wished they had shopped around and discovered this great bike rack before purchasing less expensive bike racks. Other racks required the use of a $30.00 pole for each bike. With this rack there are no surprise add-ons. However, I would recommend the hitch lock and bike lock that secures the bikes to the rack.

After much studying of all the bike racks out there, we found this one to be perfect. We have new "Electra Townie" cruiser bikes. One of them has fenders and both are lady's style which made most of the racks available not work without adding an adapter bar. This rack works with both our Pick-up and our Rav4 that has the spare tire on the back. It is super easy to install and load the bikes on. We couldn't be happier!

Fit and finish are very nice. Assembly is a snap. Getting it set up just right so both bikes fit right took some time, now that it's done it works well. The main reason we went with the Freedom is my wife has a drop-frame bike. I would have liked to go with a SuperClamp, but this was half the cost.

I bought this as it seemed conducive to my recumbent. It works well with only a bungee cord for back up due to the frame holder on the center not touching the frame. However, the box was missing the 3 nuts for the three bolts. Auto anything replaced them.
