i need rack recommendations
i have a toyota matrix wagon. there is no hitch and i would like to bring our bikes to the beach. i have 2 cruisers and a children's bike to lug around. please help.
I have an Allen 102D, which I bought for $55 at my LBS. Seems OK. Pretty much any trunk-mounted rack depends upon the integrity of the straps and the buckles, but that being said, it appears fine. I believe they have models that fit 3/4 bikes as well. If you buy this, I would suggest that you read the instructions carefully, ask your LBS to show you how to set it up, and take a few practice rides to get a feel before you do anything substantial.

Also, is $50 an ok price?
over the weekend i ended up buying a hollywood baja rack for 3 bikes and i'm satisfied with it. http://www.hollywoodracks.com/trunk.htm i would just advise that after u mount your bike on if it isn't stable. use some straps and bungee cords so the bikes don't move while driving.
