I'm looking for a bike carrier for our family travel car so that I can take my bike on trips, especially to the in-laws in Iowa City where I hear there are a couple good mountain bike trails. The vehicle I'm trying to fit is a Honda CR-V. We went cheap on the CR-V since we were buying new - no towing package (so no hitch) and no roof rails. A hitch would be $150 or so plus the cost of the actual carrier. Honda makes a bike carrier specific to the CR-V, but first I'd have to pay $250 for the roof rails and then another $100 or so for the carrier. The biggest complication is the fact the the spare tire is mounted on the rear of the vehicle, offset to the passenger side. Everything I've seen so far that straps to the back of an SUV doesn't show the carrier going over a rear-mounted spare. I saw one carrier that mounts directly to the spare, but since the spare on the CR-V is way over on the passender side, the bike would likely be hanging way out on the passenger side. Has anybody seen a strap-on bike carrier for SUV's that will accomodate a rear-mounted spare tire? I'd like to keep the solution under $100 if at all possible. I'm aware that Duct Tape is a possible solution, but the wife will veto especially since it's "her" car.
