Hello

I have a Saris Bones 3 that was a replacement for one that got damaged in a car accident, its brand new and unused, I have changed cars since the accident and this rack is no longer suitable.

Box has seen better days, the winter in the shed has not been good to the box.

the rack is perfect nick, and Its in funky purple.

Photos here:

£90 ono + P&P

Cheers Steve

I didn't think there was a car these couldn't fit! We've had mine on a hatch, a saloon, a mini and now my big ugly estate... :D

It says on there site they will fit a 06+ Honda Civic's, from what I been reading and have seen it isn't advised. LBS said there not really suitable for cars with glass hatches.

I would tend to avoid putting the feet actually on the glass, but unless the rear window's absolutely mahoossive... :lol:

Anyhoo, good luck with it, brilliant rack :D

edit
Just thinking about the Civic space rocket thingy, you may have found the only car it really wouldn't work with, gutted for you! :(

Still Im not sure that I would trust it, only really go back and forth Cornwall with the bikes, I want them to hang on for the 6hr trip.
Plus I want a tow bar for my other hobby lol
