Hey, so I was out cycling today and I remember seeing a thread about bike racks, so I decided to take some pictures for you. I used to dissassemble my bike and fit it in the car and then reassemble it at the trail. This rack made things easier. The good thing is that I can put it on and take the rack off when I need it.
Here you go! and the bike is my Trek Fuel 70, Great bike!

I just bought a curt hitch for my gs from the for sale section. I can now put on the 4 bike swagman hitch mount that I just purchased. Once my car is back from getting repaired from a recent hailstorm, ill post some pics.

ToM, think I've got a box for it now, just need to get rid of what's in the box (a G4 Elite folding tonneau cover to install on my truck). Hopefully can get it installed this weekend and free up the box.

I think one of the new things I bought (and found when I was gathering parts) that I never used was a fairing. On my old car at highway speed the bars did make a bit of noise, so think I wanted it to use on the Lexus to cut down the sound. I may be wrong because its smaller than I expected it to be... must fold in half.

The thread says it was a Yakima Bike Rack.

Thanks. That's my car... I have painted the roof black and the rack blends even better on it

Here are some more old pics before the black roof







Speaking of racks, I just bought a roof mount for my turbo

- You're talking about the rack right? Chea, I don't like it either, it hangs off the back and bounces a lot. I have a roof rack too but never thought of putting it on my GS.

Yeah I think he means the rack. I was given one of those kinds you attach to the trunk and I tried it on my car and did not like it. Go with the roof rack
