The Solo is small enough to store in a trunk or closet, so it's as easy to store as it is to use.

Great but the instructions are missing a key thing

At first I was ready to chuck this rack in the trash because on longer trips my bike started slowly slipping lower and lower. I nearly had a panic attack imaging my bike scattered all over the freeway. Even though my bike is well under 35lbs, the metal buckles weren't holding the straps tightly enough to keep them from slipping.

But I called Saris support and they gave me great advice: Tie a knot in the two upper straps directly below the buckle and they won't slip. The knot is too fat to pass through the buckle so it'll keep everything in place. Apparently this advice is in the manual for other Solo racks, but not this one. Maybe they wanted to keep the little instruction card dead simple, but this tidbit made all the difference for me. Now I love the rack and feel totally confident using it.

I bought this rack for my 2005 Scion xB. Wanting to center the rack on the hatch, I mounted it so that the two upper contacts were on the rear window and the two lower contacts were between the rear wiper and the license plate. To what I attribute to the effect of having no side straps to prevent lateral movement, the lower contacts have created marks on the paint that I going to try and buff out. I was hesitant to mount the racks will all four contact on the rear glass, but I don't want any further damage to the paint. I use the rack for my carbon fiber road bike so I don think the weight should be an issue. My main hesitation is that the rack does bounce a bit on uneven roads and potholes that I try my best to avoid, but not all are avoidable, and I don't want to risk breaking the rear window. For that reason, I give the Solo 2 stars.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

All of my bike carrying chores to date have been solved by a Saris bike rack that mounts to a frame mounted receiver. However, my new car, electric, does not accept a receiver mount because of the battery. The Solo solves the problem. It is easy -- well straight forward -- to install and holds a single road bike rock solid.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was extremely worried that my bike was going to hit my car (I have a 2014 Jetta sedan and didn't see to purchase the buffer pads until after the fact). The pedal hits the license plate (no problem for me), and the tire touch point is the brake light, so no bike to car paint contact -- phew! Super light and small -- easy for me to stow in the trunk when not in use. For the price, highly recommended. Definitely tie knots close to the strap buckles to prevent slack.

I bought this for my wife (X-mas) and she was hesitant about it on her Rogue. The straps do fit over the rear wind draft spoiler and it is light weight not to put undo stress on it. She had trouble the first few times loading it up, but it is an easy to learn system. Perhaps velcro strapping instead of plastic, we'll see how the wear-and-tear hold up over the season

I am a working mom on the go whose SUV needs to be ready for kids, clients, or every so often - some me time in the form of a bike ride - all at a moments notice. The Solo fits perfectly in the back of my SUV, or on the back of my SUV - as needed and also at a moments notice. It's compact and stows neatly yet in a few moments can be mounted perfectly with the adjustable straps on the back of my car quickly and easily, with pedals safely away from my car.
