    The LBS recommended Sardis Bones, so I bought it. I like it. Lightweight. Easier to adjust to 2 cars (the big reason I bought it). Doesn't mark the car. Mine holds 3 bikes. A 29er with wide bars, a 26er, and 24" just barely fit. Consider your needs - a 2 bike holder is a lot cheaper than a 3 or 4 bike holder. I don't think it's recommended to put carbon fiber bikes on a rack that holds the top tube.

    Ok. Thanks a lot. Does it have a lock on it to lock the bike up like the top racks?

    there is no way to lock the Saris Bones rack to a car or lock a bike to the rack ... you may also consider a 1.25" hitch rack like these
