Recumbent - Car rack for Giant Revive?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes.

Does anyone know of the best type of car rack for a Giant Revive semi recumbent?
I would prefer a hitch type (that goes into a trailer hitch).

Does your LBS stock anything? I have a Graber, and it's worked well on both my DF and then my lwb bent.
Do any of the Graber hitch mount racks work, or only the trunk mounts?
The catch 22 is since I have no rack I cant take the Revive to the local store very easily because the ride is very long and through heavy traffic, and the guys there are not sure if it will work without actually having the bike in hand...

Saris Cycle On racks work. They hold the wheels not the frame. Also Giant makes a trunk rack specifically for Revive. Check at the shop where you bought your bike.

Check at the shop where you bought your bike.
Good idea. If you can't do that, find someone that can give you and your bike a lift to the LBS.
That Saris cycle on looks outstanding- anyone here use it? I am tempted to order one today! (thanks for the tips)
I just called Saris and they said the Cycle on will fit a maximum wheel base of 46 inches, and I measured the Revive at 48 inches...
Has anyone actually used the Revive on the Cycle on rack????

The revive fits perfectly on the sportsworks mod series bike rack. You can put 1 bent and 1 DF on this rack, easily. Revive goes closer to the vehicle. A light weight vehicle uses a 1 1/4" hitch and it will handle the revive and one DF. If you have a 2" hitch, you should be able to carry 2 revives.
Just make sure you get a bent module for each revive you want to carry.

Sportswork is better and easier to load
