    Saris Bones

    I use the Saris "bones" bike rack, the instructions state that you should not drive in excess of 65 mph while transporting.

    Does this mean I have to avoid all highways and interstates while enroute to a trail?

    Also, my LBS set my rack up on my trunk, but they secured the bottom legs to my trunk as opposed to the bumper to maintain functionality of my trunk, but the instructions state it should be secured to the bumper, what are your thoughts?

    As always, everyone has great input, thanks!

    I used mine with the "hatch hugger's" on my Alero. Put 2 bikes on it and went 75-80 mph for a 4 hour drive to a race with no problem. When I put the rack on I always grab it and shake it. I know it is tight enough when the car shakes and there is no movement from the Bones.

    I secure my bottom hooks to the trunk as well....no problems there. I have also gone faster than 65 with no problems..... I've got the 3 bike rack and it has been great!

    When I lived in Germany, I would regularly drive 80-110mph (120-170kph) for 20-30 minutes with a single bike in my 2 bike bones.

    Your mileage may vary.
