Loading and unloading bikes from the rack can get so exhausting, you may not have any energy left for the ride. But instead of hiring a dedicated girl on Friday to help you with your steeds, enlist some help from Thelma—the Saris Thelma Hitch Mount Bike Rack. Featuring a platform-type design, the Saris Thelma is one of the easiest racks to load and unload. So easy in fact, it's like having your own personal bicycle attendant loading them for you!
Carrying 1, 2 or 3 bicycles of most any shape, weighing up to 35 lbs each, the Saris Thelma 3 also handles a wide variety of tire types and sizes. The unique wheel trays handle whisper-thin road tires all the way up to super fat downhill knobby meats. And, it holds fast to 700c, 26" and 29" wheel diameters. Best yet, your Saris Thelma bike rack does this without ever contacting the bike frame, and no wheel removal is required.
Mounting to 1.25" and 2" standard hitch receivers, the Saris Thelma easily slips into any hitch. The rack is designed to fold up when not in use, and it weighs only 26 lbs, so it's easy for one person to load and unload from the vehicle. What's more, Saris builds your Thelma Hitch Mount Bike Rack in the USA, and they back it with a Lifetime Warranty.

Works well. Easy to install. Upgrades for Saris; the rack should be able to adjust down when loaded so you can access hatch area and the scoops that hold wheels should lock in place when flattened. Nervous they might swing forward and hit back of vehicle under hard braking.

Saris makes a quality bicycle rack. I was looking for something I could trust not to damage my car and my bicycle. This rack does not come into contact with either other than the hitch....Excellent product.

We wanted a platform rack that was affordable, easy to use, and would protect our expensive road bikes from bike to bike contact. After reading reviews and seeing what was available we chose the Saris Thelma with three bike option so everyone in the family could take a bike. The rack was easy to assemble, is lightweight and somewhat compact. The bikes fit well and are pretty stable. We have used this bike rack on a couple of 3 hr trips and haven't had any problems.

Really like the wheel attachment on this rack 'cause it allows bike transport without scratching up frame. To this point, we've only hauled 2 bikes (have the 3 bike rack) and each trip went smoothly. Both bikes and rack are stable. BTW, instructions for putting the rack together were well done!

It is the best investment I could have made and right from the start! The ordering was simple and shipping was quick! I had to put it together with my daughter, but no problem. Definitely a 2 woman job, though. It sits close to my car, doesn't extend out too far. And is so simple to use. I live it! Katherine, Madison, WI
