Saris Gran Fondo 2 bike carrier no. SAGF2
The Gran Fondo holds up to two bikes vertically on the rear of your car. This has a number of advantages:
- Does not obscure the lights and number plate
- More aerodynamic
- Better vision when driving
It fits bikes with 700c, 26" and 29" wheels. As the bikes are held by the wheels, not the frame, it can even take sensitive carbon frames.
A new way to transport bikes on the rear of your car!
The Gran Fondo cradles your bikes vertically - this has a number of advantages:
It has a lightweight, rust-resistant aluminium frame that attaches easily with rubber-coated hooks that protect your vehicle's finish.
As the bikes are held by the wheels, rather than the frame, the Grand Fondo is suitable for bikes with sensitive frames, e,g, carbon frames. It's also ideal for bikes with unusual shaped frames that can be a bit tricky to fit to a normal hang-on style rack.
All Gran Fondo components are 100% recyclable, although with the Saris "lifetime warranty" this isn't such a consideration as it might be.
Saris doesn't publish an up to date European application guide. We've used our best judgment in linking this product to specified vehicles where strap on racks are known to be suitable, but it's up to you to be confident about the stability before using the rack, and of course to read the fitting instructions very carefully, and to do as instructed. If there's doubt about the strength of the mounting for the Upper hooks - for example you must never hook them onto glass - then you should use the Saris Hatch Huggers, listed below. If we know that these are required, we have already selected them for you. This style of rack is not suitable for vehicles with plastic spoilers.

Delivery charges and arrangements:
We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.
For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).
There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.
Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.
We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".
If you would prefer not to pay online, or to pay by cheque, please phone us to place your order.
