Conventional bike carriers grab ahold of the frame, but that spells disaster for your downtube. No matter how padded the cradle, it can still scuff up your finish, kink your brake lines, and rub away decals. For maximum frame protection, set your cycles in the no-contact Saris SuperClamp Freedom Bike Carrier.
The frame-free stability of your SuperClamp Bike Rack boils down to its ingenious design. It features front and rear wheel hooks that press down on your tires, keeping your bike firmly planted in place for a bump-free ride. The hooks adjust to work with almost any kind of bike, and the built-in locks deliver a stiff line of defense against bike bandits.
You won't throw out your back loading the Freedom Super Clamp Hitch Bike Rack onto your ride. The SuperClamp 2 Bike Rack weights in at just 29 lbs and fits both 1.25" and 2" receivers. If you need more capacity, go with the SuperClamp 4 Bike Rack that fits 2" receivers. Both models come with a locking hitch pin for an added layer of security. What's more, they're built with pride in the USA and backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

The Freedom Superclamp is a great bike rack. First the assembly, there are two bolts to attach the rack to the support tube, and two of the wheel cradles need to be slid onto the ends of the rack beam, quite simple and took a couple of minutes, an allen wrench is provided but a wrench will be needed for the two hex nuts. Second, everything is easily adjusted. Set the bike in the wheel cradles, adjust the upright retaining arms, drop the wheel bars in place, the bike is secure and ready to go.

The Saris Freedom SuperClamp is a great bike rack. It mounts securely and holds the bike to the rack very tight. I have noticed after a long drive some of the clamps loosen up on the tires. I also wasn't a huge fan of the way the hitch ping is threaded requiring a 3/4 inch wrench too take on and off rather than using a quick disconnect pin like a typical trailer. I do like how compact it is for storage and it is light and haven't had any issues with it yet.

Saris freedome superclamp is super easy to use. Takes seconds to load bikes bike are very secure and don't move at all. Its nice to have an integral bike lock, not the most heavy duty lock. But works good. Plenty on room between bike and vehicle. I love this bike carrier.

First time I've felt totally secure carrying multiple bikes on the back of my Accord EX sedan. Easy to install, kept the bikes steady for 700 miles at turnpike speeds. The extendable cables, wheel straps and ratchet type push button adjustments are just great for quick on and off. Wish I'd known about Saris bike rack sooner. Would have saved me horrible trip to Fl. last year with a well known name brand but one that wrung apart enroute.
