Yes, fits pretty much any car, you need something like a bungee tie to hold the bike still though, small flaw in the design means the bike can swing back and forth freely on the back otherwise!

Dont let that put you off though, 99p solves the probelm and the rack is small and easy to store in the car for those impromptu bike carrying occations.

The Saris Bones solo is not compatible with your car. Racks that are compatible are the Saris Bones 2 or 3 also the Saris Sentinal 2 or 3. These rack will obscure you number plate.

Hi

I think even when mounted at the highest point, the bike will still obscure the lights and plate. Legally you should have an secondary one to place on the bikes.

Thanks

I've fitted my Saris Bones 3 to a few different vehicle and sure it will fit your BM. Would highly recommend it. Will need some adjustment but use the stickers once it is set up as a guide and it should be a doddle to fit.

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.

Question

will this rack require a lighting bar on a Y reg Fiat Seicenti Sporting 3 door model? And would it need a add on (cross)bar for a ladies hybrid bike?

I would guess it would hold it high, away from the plate and lights, you can essentially set it as high as you need to within reason by adjusting the straps.
I don't think a ladies bike (sans crossbar) would sit properly so unless there is some way to securely add a cross bar (and it would have to be SERIOUSLY secure) I don't think this would suit a ladies bike..sorry..
