answer 1
The bike is quite close to the car, so it is possible it will hit the back of the car. You would need to use some king of padding to stop this occuring.

With regard to straps. There are no straps provided to stock the bike swinging.

answer 2
Yes it is and no there are not:
On my car a Peugout 106 I have to position the nearside pedal away from the body and wrap the crank and the front Disc with a thick cloth. You need to secure the bike once its on the rack. I bungee the front wheel to the the little towing loop (offside rear) on the car and bungee the front wheel to the frame to stop it swaying.

see my review..

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.

Altohugh it is not listed, I think this should fit providing you do not have any spoilers that might obstruct the fitting.

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.

Question

Fitting Saris Solo to VW Golf TDI 58 plate.

I Bonnell

I have just purchased the Saris Solo carrier. This carrier should fit my Golf TDI, but I cannot get the rubberised fitting brackets to fit into the gap above the hatch or below between boot door and bumper. They should fit in easily on my car. How can I get it to fit.

Many thanks.
