Saris Trunk Mounted Bike Fit for 2008 Mazda 3 Hatchback  


I currently drive a 2008 Mazda 3 hatchback. Will the Saris Solo 1 fit this vehicle or what type of bike rack do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

For your 2008 Mazda 3 hatchback the Saris Solo Trunk Rack part # SA102 is a confirmed fit that would work well. But it's not the rack I would recommend. Instead the Bones part # SA805BL would be a much better fit and would carry the bike(s) in a much more stable way due to it's adjustable arms and anti-sway cradles.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
