    29er Bike Rack for Car Trunks

    Anyone have any suggestions on bike racks that will mount on the trunk. Seen quite a few reviews saying most models with scratch the tubes and seat posts.

    I use an older version of the Thule Passage 2 and it doesn't appear to scratch my frame.

    On any trunk rack make sure to load the bike so your tire isn't close to the car's exhaust. Had a friend show up to a trail head with a hole burned through his sidewall.

    I've never had my Bones 2 scratch anything on my bikes but the top of the trunk did get scratched once because I forgot to wipe the dust off before mounting it one day.
