I use a Thule rack made for two bikes. I usually take the sweet seat off the bike, to help it balance better. Some nylon straps and a couple bungie cords keeps everything tied down nicely. Never had a problem.

I have a Yakima rack on my car and it works just fine for my Rans Tailwind. I just hang the bike upside down and use some extra bungees.

After spending endless hours looking for that special rack, I finally gave up and bought the one that was recommended to fit on the back of my car. I think any of the reputable br manufactuers will probably work.
