    Just wondering if anyone has used a saris bones 3 on a 2000-2002 Honda Accord?

    If so, did it work well?

    Also did you mount the bottom legs to the trunk or the bumper?

    Any insight would be much appreciated!

    The bottom legs should go on the bumper.

    I have seen the bottom legs both ways on vehicles. The potential issue is the plastic bumpers on the accords. That's why I am asking for user feedback.

    I've got a Saris Bones 3 and the instructions are clear that the bottom legs should be on the bumper.

    Thanks to all of you for your feedback.

    I have decided to buy the Bones RS.

    Much appreciated!
