Nice. Sorry I didn't keep up with this thread

I think I'm gonna go with the Saris, Pretty inexpensive too only 135$ for two bikes. I have the low rise spoiler. How does it feel? Pretty secure?

I don't think I'm going to be getting the rack right off the bat. I can deal with taking the wheel off but down the road. SO for now Ill definetly wrap it in a blanket or sheet. Kinda have to after hitting up a trail.

Yeah It feels great on there. I always watch it in the mirror when I go over railroad tracks and what not. It's a great bike rack. I put folded up little towels under the 3 arms that touch the car though because I dont want any marks. Learned the hard way =[

My Saris Bones 2 Rack. For the most part seems to be pretty sturdy, its a little wobbly but a little play isn't such a bad thing. I have the bike pretty close to my car and the pedal is rubbing on hatch so i put a was cloth over it to prevent it from doing damage.

Re: Bikes in a TIb

Whoa sorry the pictures are so big, should have resized them :/ My bad.
I think Ill get the Saris Bike Cable lock. They are about 8 feet long and that owuld be plenty to possibly secure the bikes rack to the rack Probably run it through the spoiler back over through the saris rack's hole thing, around the frames and possibly even the wheels if it permits.

Re: Bikes in a TIb

Twice I have put a bicycle in my Tib. Just fold the rear seat(s) down and push the passenger seat forward. Done. No need to remove a wheel or anything. Put the front of the bike where the passenger seat is and the rear wheel at the end of the hatch.

Re: Bikes in a TIb

I have a hitch on my car (was already like that) so I can get a bike rack and put it there!

In your case, the bike rack that attach to the trunk is a good option, but put some piece of rubber where the bracket will hold to the car because it can scratch the paint really bad (it happens to my GF's car).

But, I was able to put my mountain bike (22" wheels) in the car without removing the front tire. The hatch was closing perfectly. Just put the front wheel at a vertical position between the folded back seats and the front seats... I don't know if you understand what I mean, but if you do it that way, it is the same thing as if you were removing the front wheel.
