    Choosing a bike rack for VW Jetta

    Hello. This forum has been of great help to me so far. I was just wondering if anyone could give me any advice on the best bike rack (Functional & stylewise) for a VW Jetta (03)

    I've never had to transport my bike in the past, so this is all new to me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    If you are looking for trunk mount rear rack, try the Yakima Loco Joe rack. It will hold 3 bikes and this is solid with top, bottom, and side straps. Got mine on sale at Sierra Trading Post for $39.95. Found lpcally at $79.95. Tried a roof rack years ago, never again.
