    Bike Rack Revisited

    Has anyone put a Saris RS or Bones 2 or 3 bike rack rack on a Prius?

    According to the Saris site neither will fit. However I spoke their with customer service and I was told the Bones racks will fit but there is a potential for spoiler damage from the side strap buckles.

    The RS is really sweet but for the few times a year I would use the carrier the more economical Bones 2 would be a better choice. Lane-----Lp

    They will work on the first generation Prius, '99 - '03, but not on the 2nd generation, i.e. '04 to present. The first generation had a steel body, which will support the weight of the rack plus bikes, whereas the 2nd generation body is a combination of plastic (fiberglass) and aluminum.

    With one bike, and a light bike at that, you'd probably be okay. Otherwise you risk damage to the 2nd gen. Prius body work.
