Bumping this as I'll be buying a rack to use for an upcoming move to a new city and for road trips. The Thule and Yakima racks seem to be pretty popular, which CL vendors carry them? Is there a rack I can buy from Sewell maybe? I'd also need a basket for the rack as well.

My bike rack = trunk

Was pretty much end of season for riding with no snow , wife had suv and I was itching to get last non snow ride in so I proceeded to make my bike fit in my is350 trunk.

29er full suspension MTB ---had to remove wheels seat and handlebars--took me 5 mins to place in trunk which is not too bad...but not much room left for luggage if required.

too much work putting those bikes on the roof & I don't trust suction cups.

Nice bike! I had such a good laugh over this post I had to send it to my boyfriend. I ride a 29er and he rides DH. Neither bike will find its way in my trunk. That's what the truck and the Dakine bike pad are for!

Thanks I really have enjoyed the specialized 29er bought her in the spring.

Yes agreed much easier to use a truck or SUV ...but I just had that desperate itch---lol...I anticipated the last pre snow ride would be a mess --obvious in second picture picture so I had drop clothes ready for the post muddy mess occasion.

I'm surprised no-one at all has posted pictures of roof boxes. I've been considering getting roof racks to carry a set of track/autocross wheels.
