Nashbar Saris “Bicycle Truck Rack”
Today on our 2014 Kia Sorento, we're going to be test fitting the Saris Freedom SuperClamp 2-Bike Platform Style Rack 4-1/4" and 2" hitches part number Sa4025. We'll begin our test fit by inserting the shank of the rack into the hitch of our vehicle. With that inserted, we'll go ahead and line up the hitch pinhole. We'll then take the included anti rattle hitch lock and thread that into place. You may have to wiggle your rack around to get it in the right position so that the threads grab on. Once you have that hand tight, you can go ahead and tighten it down the rest of the way with your wrench. This helps to take any extra play out of the shank of the rack. With that tightened, we'll go ahead and snap the lock on to the other side. Now with the rack in this position, the closest point of the rack to the vehicle is going to be right here on the wheel cradle. That measures about 7-1/2" from the rear of the vehicle. The closest point of the ground, to the ground, excuse me, is going to be the shank which measures about 12-1/4". Overall, we've added about 24" to the rear of our vehicle. With the rack in this position, we can easily open our rear hatch to access our cargo area. We'll go ahead and prepare to load our bike.
