Saris Bones racks- any good?Jack S

How easy to set up and remove? Is it stable on the car? Is the 3-bike any more stable than the 2-bike? Thanks.

I've had a pretty decent experience with mine (2 bike model). I bought it because my 50 cm frame has such a tight main triangle, that most conventional racks won't hold it without damaging it. On the Saris, though, the width of the arms is a)much narrower than conventional racks and b)adjustable. I've not had any problems with putting it on/taking it off the car, and with just a few minor adjustments (i.e., I strap a piece of rubber around the seat-tube where it meets the rack to protect the finish, and I strap the front wheel to the frame to keep it from swinging) I've been very happy with it.
