    PM ProEdgeBiker or visit his website. He's one source of many but I believe several users here have bought from him.

    Jaja thank you for the link but, as you said, there is no boxster pics. I have write to seasucker guys asking if it is possible to mount Talon in the rear trunk of the boxster before buying, cause rear trunk is very short, and Im just wondering what about rear wheel, any way to lock it to the rear bumper or something like that? case is simmilar to this one:

    Is there a reason you want to lock the rear wheel and not use the sucker with the rear wheel strap? I see no reason why a talon wouldn't work on your Porsche boxster. Are you in the USA? Shoot me an email.

    Its just that rear trunk is very short to incorporate the two talon suckers and rear bumper is curved surface, so I think I cant use sucker with wheel strap in it, please tell me if Im right.
    Im from spain, but we can email if you prefer,

    Thank you so much and sorry for the inconvenience.

    SeaSucker recommends a weight limit of 45lbs/bike. Just keep in mind that each sucker has a rating of 210lbs.

    Here is a quick review of My Seasucker Hornet. More pics are on my blog

    Name:  Gryphon+On+Jeep.jpeg
Views: 10177
Size:  47.7 KB

    I was looking for a rack to use on my Jeep Liberty. My needs for a rack where simple carry one bike to the trail head with out damaging the bike or the vehicle, and if possible I prefer to keep the front wheel on the bike.

    I didn't want to go with a roof mounted system as the Jeep is fairly tall and it would be a chore to mount a bike on the roof after an exhausting ride. I also didn't want any rack that holds the frame by the top tube, which eliminates most Trunk mounted styles and all the lower priced hitch mounts.

    I currently do not have a hitch on the Jeep (and that's not a deal breaker to get one just the added cost) There are a lot of good hitch mounted racks out there.
    But I wanted something that wasn't bulky like a Yakima or Thule (Both great racks and would buy if I needed to carry multiple bikes all the time) I looked at the Saris Thelma, and I just couldn't do it. The Bike rack I almost bought was the 1up USA Single Bike Rack. It looked clean and not overly bulky, The 1up rack is $299 plus shipping and I would need to get a hitch installed $179 plus tax. So I was saving up $500 for this project when I stumbled across the Seasucker Hornet.

    I had eliminated the Seasucker racks from my search early on, It had nothing to do with my faith in there suction technology but all the 2012 designs required you to take the front wheel off. When I came across the Hornet I was immediately curious about it. I Read some reviews and found there website helpful.(SeaSucker Hornet)
    and at $175 it seemed to be a bargain!

    Another feature that sold me and I didn't think to add as a requirement is the flexibility to use on several vehicles (Between me and my wife we have had 6 different vehicles since 2009!) This little rack would work perfectly on My Jeep and Her Honda (which has since been traded into a Chevy Spark which the Hornet still works with!)

    I have used the Hornet at least ten times already, no super long trips yet, but I have had it a freeway speeds for 50 miles and taken it on some bumpy road and on real severe train track and it hasn't budged! It easy real easy to keep an eye on your bike while driving by using your rear view mirror.

    It looks like there is nothing holding the seat or rear of the bike in place. Does it sway from side to side at all?

    There is only a little movement and its at slow speeds, the air hitting your front wheel applies down-force to keep it still

    Yeah, but wouldn't bumps in the road cause the seat to smack into the vehicle itself though?

    The weight of the bike alone causes it to minimize the movement but yes, you're correct, there are times where a bump will cause the seat to bounce.
    I have had a few people who have bought the Hornet also buy the 4.5" rear wheel holder that they use to strap their seat with to stop all movement.

    Quick question to all you SeaSucker owners... Do you remove the rack components and store them in your car when you're out riding? And is this much of a hassle?

    Another quick question: would I need to use a fork adapter for my Santa Cruz Tallboy?

    Edit: I guess the fork is more important than the bike itself. It's a Reba RL (through axle).

    I have both the hurricane and the rocky mount. Prefer the rocky mount because it fits both 20mm and 15mm thru axles. Only thing is you have to tap one hole a little bigger and make it fit, but the ease to latch on is better IMO that the hurricane. If needed I can show you how I did it. Oh and I have the Mini bomber.

    Yes, an adapter is needed for Lefty, 15mm or 20mm forks. We carry Hurricane Fork-Up adapters.

    Anyone have any experience using the Hornet on a 2006 Honda CR-V? I'm assuming the spare tire would present a problem...

    isnt the spare sort of on the right side of the vehicle? if so, place the bike on the left side.

    Back to the pics. Taken the other day by my buddies son heading home from the trail while doing 80 on the highway. Looks like I am parked. His cellphone takes some pretty damn good pictures. I got a LOT of looks that day. I usually get some, but everyone that I either passed or passed me was staring. It must be kind of crazy. I am used to seeing it so it doesn't affect me.

    Like you, I get inquiries and camera pictures all the time. From both fellow bikers and drivers. It's not every day you see a bike on the back of a Z. FYI, I've gone 90+ mph (recommendation is not to exceed 85 mph) with no issues. One of the best investments I've made.

    The Sucker looks like it was almost designed for your car. Really wish that I could run my bike comfortably facing forward like that.

    I wondered if you could do that with a ute.
    Did it move at all?
    Do you think it would move if you had gear in the back which lifted up the back end of the bike so it was level with the sides?

    It holds extremely well...the back wheel doesn't seem to move at all, and I have ran it through some pretty rough testing.

    The other day I had a cooler under the front of the bike, and the back tire was up on some fire wood, granted I only drove about 12 miles of country road like that it seemed to work just fine.

    That's pretty much the reason I bought the rack. It is really versatile, and can save a lot of bed space when your bike is back there.

    No. Only thing in that review I agree with is the velcro strap. I wish it did have a ratcheting strap but honestly you can snug that velcro strap down really good. I saw that review and could tell he was totally biased. The price isnt any higher than a normal roof rack in fact it might be cheaper once you throw in bike trays and such. you could tell the review was negative since the beginning even though he notes that the two faults he had were user error.

    The review is harsh. The front fork mount is a little awkward but not a deal breaker. The rear Velcro is fine IMHO. The ability to carry a bike on my 135 convertible is awesome. Great idea and the product works. 100% secure at highway speeds.

    Far as I could find, this is the only rack that you can use on a Crown Vic.

    Well, I had my first issue today. I sold my mountain bike on a local mtb forum. Went to load it up today for the final time to meet the guy, and my rear cup for some reason would not vacuum to the roof. I have attempted it several times and never had an issue. I was pressed for time, so I had to improvise. 30 minute highway drive at 65-70 mph. I do NOT recommend this to anyone considering it.



    It held, but I was worried the entire time. I could feel the resistance from the bike at the angle it was on there. It was rocking as well, and I was very worried that I would lose it. I guess I answered any questions I had about how it would work sideways or at an angle.

    I stopped at the local shop on the way home and picked up a new cyclocross bike, and of course, the rear cup vacuumed just fine to the roof when I went to try it. I run mine backwards because I don't feel like the roof is solid enough to mount the front 3 cups to. Now that I have a much lighter bike, I may try it and see.
