Need a bike rack. Suggestions?
Hello all.

I am just getting back into the world of biking after a long time away. I purchased a Trek 2.1 Pilot a few weeks ago and love riding it. Now I am wanting to meet up with other people to ride with. I understand that if I get a carrier that clamps onto the bar there is a good chance it will rub my paint off. Not a good situation. :cry: I would love to be able to take at least 3 bikes in case my wife would decide to take her's along with my daughter and I.

Need experience in this. Help!

I've been dealing with just this issue. I was thinking about the Saris Bones. Looks like a good rack and has solid reviews. But then a friend offered me a set of Yakima towers with cross bars (free!). Hard to say no to that!

Saris Bones.

We use the Saris Bones and love it. Easy to use and can be put on or taken off the car very fast.

I guess that I left out one important statement: I'm looking for a hitch style rack. It didn't even dawn on me until I started looking at the Saris Bones series that I left this out.

Any hitch help?
