ust got back from a lunchtime ride, and using the new superclamp rack for the first time.

This is the mother of all bike racks. It's a pleasure to use. Love the integrated lock cable for the bikes. I have to leave my bike on the rack while at work, and the locking features at the hitch reciever and the integrated cables for the bike give me peace of mind. The step pedal to raise and lower the rack is just awesome. In the up position it's out of the way. There's also a tilted down position that gets it out of the way so I can open my tacoma's tailgate completely without removing the rack. The arms and buttons are all so easy to use. This rack is really no bigger than our old Saris 2 bike rack and yet it can hold 4 bikes. Hey! We have 4 people in our family... Perfect! : ) I also like that the rack is both threaded and locking to the hitch receiver. The years of experience the company has in making bike racks is really showing. The old product was great, but it looks like they have thought of everything!

I feel that this rack falls short in a number of ways. First off, the hitch tightening system. It is simply a nut welded to a u shaped piece of metal that slides into the end of the rack before it goes into the receiver. However this does not keep the hitch tight from moving up and down only side to side. Also it will just fall out, either sliding into the hitch receiver or into the rack itself. Next , where the rack tilts either towards or away from your car, the hinge that allows the rack to do this is very loose allowing the back half of the rack to rattle independently . Meaning your bikes will rattle and bounce around no matter what. They wont rattle inside the rack but the whole rack will move around. The overall metal construction seems ok, but all of the plastic pieces feel cheap and you will have to adjust the wheel trays every time you put a different bike on because the trays don"t pivot. Made in the USA does not make up for terrible design and cheap plastic. The plastic strap system is a joke I got a great discount on this rack and I still don"t want it. I honestly feel that the good reviews for this rack on here, are from people that don't know any better and have not used superior racks in order to compare. Lastly, I am from Wisconsin, and wanted to support a company born and bred there, however the product falls well short of my expectations and I cannot justify keeping.

    Comments about Saris Freedom SuperClamp 4-Bike:

    No rack holds a bike better than this rack. Not only is there no frame contact, but the hook doesn't have to ride against the front brake. The arms themselves ratchet, so it doesn't have to cross the apex of the wheel. Better than Thule T2 Pro & Kuat NV. The only benefit on the other 2 is the cam locking system in the hitch - no tools needed. That's the only improvement left for the Saris Freedom Superclamp series racks.

    Comments about Saris Freedom SuperClamp 4-Bike:

    I've had the Thelma two bike for years and decided to upgrade to the Super Clamp 4 bike to accomadate our growing bike collection. This is the most thought out bike carrier. Pros... Carries 4 bikes very securely, easy to use except for the one rack closest to the vehicle. Really like the cable locks to keep bike secure on rack along with the hitch lock. Cons.... I have a really hard time loading bikes on the rack closest to the van and scratched my van in the processes. Also, make sure you push the cable locks in until you hear them click otherwise they are not locked. It's also very heavy so I'm leaving it on for the season and will need help getting it off and into storage. All in all, I would buy again! Heavy duty, well made and should last me a long while!

          Bought this for the 2016 road season and haven't been disappointed at all! The rack is the best one to avoid touching the bike frame. I don't worry at all with its stability and can fully trust this rack to hold my teams bikes, and trust me they didn't come cheap! Would recommend to anyone who needs a really reliable rack.

          Excellent product. Me and the lady travel every weekend to races and events and often need both road and cyclocross machines to go with us. This rack has added fun into packing and unpacking our equipment! So easy to drop our bikes and go...no more front wheels off, tetris the suv. We can add another rider on race day, or take 2 road and 2 CX to all our far away destantions. We have all carbon bikes and nothing comes in contact with the frames. Bikes our super stable. We just drove from Chicago to Nashville to going down in a snowstorm and returning in a rain storm, bikes were well protected and traveled like champs on this rack! It should be called the Freedom Super Champ!

          I bought this two weeks ago and out of the box noticed that I had five A tire holders and 3 B's. Not too big of a deal just packing error, I can let that slide.

          The one star rating is for the build quality. Two days into a five day trip I tried to access my vehicles rear lift gate by using the tilt feature and the lever to lower it broke. I'm not sure what the linkage for that lever is made from, obviously it's not something durable enough to handle bring pressed.

          I bought this rack for my SUV to take bike trips with the family. It's great to be able to lower it down and raise the tailgate because the young ones have a trail bike and seat that need to go in the back. The rack sticks out a few feet from the rear bumper, but is extremely stable and holds the bikes tight in place. I take it off after each use, fold it up and hang it on two hooks in the garage. One improvement that could be made for better theft deterrence is to weld the cross members to the main bar.

          I got this rack this summer and have taken many family trips filling the four trays. The rack is very sturdy and solid but the best feature is the clamping. The clamps hold the bikes tighter than any other rack I have had to date. I was able to fit everything from 4 Enduro bikes with 800mm wide bars to 4 road bikes on there. To say that I am happy with the purchase is an understatment

            I see two different/conflicting types of integrated cable locks on the super clamp in the literature. One where the lock is yellow on the end of one cable and locks to the other male cable in the air-(ie one male one female cable). The otber type is the lock is fixed to the frame and both ends of the cable have the male part. Which version does this rack actually have? (Is one newer?)
