King Joe vs. Bones

I am in need of a trunk bike rack and unsure if I should get the Saris Bones or the Yakima King Joe. My lbs has the King Joe on sale this week for $119.99 while another has the Bones for $124.99 next week. Both are supposed to fit my car, a 99 Saturn Sl2. Is there a real difference between the two and if so what?

Bones

Just got a Saris Bones 2 this week. I was nervous putting it on my car, but it works great!! Very stable, and easy to use.

That seems to be the consensus around here. I'll probably be getting the Bones 3 today. Was just wondering if anyone had any experience with the KingJoe. It's hard to find reviews for that rack.

I just wrote up a short review of the KingJoe 3 at the mountain bike forums. I used it on my 95 Saturn and currently use it on my Subaru Legacy. I say go with the Saris. The straps on the Yakima have a tendency to loosen up while driving.
