Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saris owns best Price to Quality Ratio for Bike Racks Straps do not stabilize the wheel completely in the cups. At high speeds, my handle bars appear to wiggle back and forth a good amount.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Rack for e-bikes but need longer support straps Finally a rack that can handle heavy e-bikes. I was searching for a hitch rack that can handle e-bikes weight. I have two of them, one is about 54lbs and one at 62lbs. I could not get anything that can handle them. I found Freedom EX-2 that claims it can handle 60lbs per bike. Took the chance and bought it. I love that it came with locks for the rack to the hitch as well as locks to hold the bikes. Assembly was straight forward. Setting it up on my van was easy as well. I came in to a road block when I was loading my one bike with a mid drive motor. First, the battery was on the bottom tube so it was larger than the usual size. The strap was too short to wrap around it, even if I take the batteries out it still didn't fit. I ended up using a different strap to secure it. Now I have to spend extra buying longer straps for it. The other bike is a DYI so batteries are mounted on the down tube and is not too wide. Next was the mid mount motor sticks out a bit on the left side so I can only mount the bike on the chainring side leaning inside. It would not fit on the left side of the bike. I have not tried it on the other bike which is also a mid drive but that doesn't have the motor sticking out as much. Overall, I would say it's very stable on the highway. It sways a bit left and right but I think it will hold the two w/o any issue. I only road it for about 30 miles so can't judge it on long trips. A very well built rack that can carry heavier e-bikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent equipment, Easy to USE Only rough patch I had was trying to register my rack. Difficult to do as this was a gift and I did not have all of the codes required to complete the registration form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rack for E-bikes, low-steps, etc. I seldom rate products I've bought, but this bike rack has more than met my expectations. I wondered if it would really work with a new Trek Verve+ low-step (women's) and my Specialized Expedition Sport (men's) with a relatively low cross-bar. But I needed to try something different. On other racks, like those the bikes hang from, I had to purchase Thule cross-bar adaptors and our bikes often got scratched from contact during transport. Not this platform rack. It easily adapted to both bikes, including the heavy E-bike from Trek (45 pounds). This rack adapts nicely to whatever type of cross-bar you have, holds the bikes firmly in place, and keeps the bikes from coming into contact with each other. We just returned from a trip to Maine, a 5-hour drive each way, and couldn't be happier with this rack. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy to use. And very stable despite being a light-weight rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value for a hitch mount bike rack. Replaced my Bones 2 with the hitch rack. I painted the car and wanted better access to the trunk. This rack is sturdy and versatile. It tilts away and folds up. It is light for the strength. The bike lock deters the opportunistic thief. I'm getting a heavier lock to make it more difficult. Easy for one person to install and take off. I ride twice a week so the rack gets heavy use. I'm going to add some reflector tape on the bottom when folded up. I wanted the little american flag which is on the Freedom. I'll buy a sticker. This is the best priced rack for the strength and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Second Saris Rack My first rack is the Saris Freedom 2 rack. It's been a great rack, but after purchasing an SUV, I wanted something that tilted so that I could access the back. I looked at ZUAT racks, but couldn't see paying that much for one. I never had any issues with my original Freedom 2 rack, so knew going to Saris for the updated version that tilts would be a great purchase. I had the rack assembled within 30 minutes and it's just as solid as my Freedom 2. I like the fact that it has a built in cable to lock your bike. I will probably use an additional lock as the cable is thin. I like the U section of the rack that secures the frame of the bike. That's a perfect way to lock the bike to the rack.
