Question

long term use

Hi

Can you tell me if this is suitable for long term use. I'd like to use it to carry the mountain bike to local trail centres, around 1-2 hours on the motorway. A little concerned by the manufacturers statement 'safely transport your bike to and from your local bike shop' would hope it's useful more than this.

Thanks

Hi - as I mentioned in my review, I reckon that 20 mins is about my limit!

The bike 'dangles' off the back of the car and you need to tie it in somehow or other. This puts pressure on inappropriate points and - even when you use the saris foam pad thingies - they work free.

I can't see this being ideal for either bike or car and would go with fork-mount roof bars without a doubt for long journeys unless you have a towball mounted carrier.

For occasional and brief journeys though these are brilliant: small, light, good quality and a breeze to fit in moments.

the only way would be to use a long lock or chain through a secure part of the vehicle through the bike frame. the rack cannot be locked in place.

It's a 2008 doblo MPV with a single flat upward opening boot. (not the double door van type)

Couldn't find a doblo on their website but a Citroen Berlingo is very similar and was listed as OK

Question

Will the Saris Bones single bike rack fit on the aluminium boot of a Mk 3 Mx5 , without damaging marking it ?

As the boot lid is Horizontal and the hatchbacks of most cars are near vertical; is this the problem; ie would the bike have to lay flat ? The Model years for a Mk3 are 2005 - 2008.

No, I'm afriad it will not, The Saris Bones (2 Bike) rack will. There is a fitting guide on the saris bones website that will guide you through other options.
