    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.

    SeaSucker OWNERS, Do you agree with the MTBR Review of the Mini-Bomber?

    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.

    I dislike the rear velcro strap. I am going to look into some sort of replacement.

    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.

    Apologies for leading you astray but struth....

    Ps side point, I like this idea for cars with limited cargo space.... But seriously on a "pickup" I thought that's what they were for!
