Can Saris Freedom Bike Rack Fit with Trek Verve E-Bikes


Will the Saris Freedom 2 bike rack # SA4412B hold two trek verve e-bikes?


Expert Reply:

From what I can see I believe the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4412B will be compatible with your two Trek Verve E-Bikes as long as they are the Verve+ 2. Since you'll need to remove the battery during transport I believe the rubber cradles will fit with that middle frame section, but since the battery for the Verve+ 3 is integrated into the frame I kind of doubt the cradles will fit even if you remove the battery.

If you do have the Verve+ 3 bikes then the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 Electric Bike Rack # HLY74FR is a cost-effective version that works because it uses hooks that come down on top of the frame to secure the bikes. If you have a Lowstep version then you'll likely need to use an Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO to have a place for the hook to rest.

The ultimate bike rack for your Verve+ E-Bikes is the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 because it uses clamps that can be adjusted in various orientations to accommodate bike frames, plus it uses clamps that don't have to necessarily go all the way around a frame. This bike rack also comes with a ramp to making loading and unloading easier.
