    Trunk mount bike rack

    Can anyone recommend a good trunk mount bike rack for a 2007 Honda CRV? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    rah

    I have a Yakima I got at REI, holds three bikes on the back of my Protege5 pretty securely. Can't remember the model, but it cost about $120. I've been using it instead of the car-top rack because it doesn't affect mileage so much (with two bikes on top, I drop from 34 to 26mpg on the highway).

    I got a Yakima Super Joe 3 at REI, $85 or so.

    Takes two bikes, works fine.

    +2 for Saris Bones. You can even get it in pink.

    Absolutely the best rack I've tried in the last 20 years.
