Has anyone found a bike carrier that will fit on a Honda Odyssey? Not the type that goes in a hitch, I'm looking for something that will carry 3 kids bikes.

Sorry, no ideas. That is what we drive and we did a hitch mounted version. My brother in law drives one too and also went with the hitch mounted version. His holds 3 kids bikes very well.

Put bikes inside the Odyssey!
I put a tandem + single bike inside our '97 Accord Station Wagon.
Safer, less chance of theft/damage and keeps 'em out of the weather.

Why not a hitch mounted carrier?

Thanks for the replies, I don't have a hitch on the minivan and was trying to avoid that just to carry kids bikes, but looks like that is the way to go.

Late reply here, but we installed a receiver on our 2006 Odyssey since that's apparently the only way to go. We carry three bikes on our Hollywood Sportrider without a problem. The hitch is definitely heavy duty... 70 lbs empty, so it and three comfort bikes puts us at about half the allowed Class III tongue weight.
We have no trailer, so I didn't install the other Honda-recommended parts (tranny fluid cooler, power steering fluid cooler and air dam) since they would have added hundreds of dollars to the overall cost. If we decide to pull a trailer, we'll just add them as needed.
