Hi Gang, it's Brendan McRae, again, here for Mini Mania and today we're going to do a Demo. We're going to install the Saris, it’s a low cost Single Bike Rack for your subcompact Car.
We're going to put it on our MINI here. I'm going to show you how to do that. It's a very tiny,little Bike Carrier-it's probably one of the smallest you're going to see. It's extremely lightweight and it's very low cost. It’s cost competitive with just about any other Bike Rack on the market.
So let's put on the MINI and I'll show you how this thing works. OK, the first step. What we're going to do is when we place this on the Car, these top pads are going to sit on the glass and the bottom are going to sit, actually, on the metal.
We're going to make sure that this arch goes right over your Rear Wiper Blade, just like that. Try to get it centered and then we'll take the stripes and go up underneath the Spoiler, where it has these padded black Clips and then go right in the gap for the Hatch Back after we have it set on the car.
We're going to open up the back here and we're going to put our clips on the bottom and adjust our Straps. Just like that, get it nice and tight and just close the Hatchback when you’re done. I’m just going to take a second to take up the slack that's left from the Straps and I'm just going to tie a small, easy knot so these don’t flap in the wind. There you go, you’re all set.
The weight limit on the Bike Rack is about thirty five pounds maximum. This Bike is probably between thirty two and thirty three pounds, so it's probably right up to the maximum weight limit.
You’ll notice that you only have these two mounting points right here and it sits in a Cradle and so it really helps if your Bike Frame has got just the straight top bar.
You may have to use an adapter, if you have a custom or a different shaped Bike Frame. I’ll just show you how it goes on. You kind of want to center it, within the Straps and there you have it.
We like the Saris Solo Single Bike Rack because it is just about the most price competitive Bike Carrier that you can find in the market, and as you can see it is incredibly easy to install.
If you’d like to pick one up for yourself you can go to G2NMA3500.
