    Need a "ride on" type rack

    Hey everyone. I'm new to the sport and looking for a rack for my GF and I's bike. Her top tube doesn't come down like mine does so I can't use a rack that uses the top tube to hold the bike scure.

    Here is her bike (link wasn't working)
    Specialized Bicycle Components

    So I need a bike right like Kuat Sherpa. But after spending close to 2k I don't have alot to put in to this sadly. Any help but would much appreciated

    Try something like this. It will allow you to use most Trunk/Hitch style racks

    Thanks!...looking for a rack (with in reason) that will not allow the bike to hit one another and damage them while transporting. I didn't know if there was a brand that was just as good as the Kuat, thule, sairs

    You'll have to put something between the hook and your frame to prevent scratches (a sock works well) but they'll hold a bike as well as anything.

    Insert the hook in to the sock or wrap the sock around the bike's frame? I honestly was looking at this. It would be great if they had one or something that would go in the bed of the truck (don't have a hitch on mine, this is for the gf's car)
