    Bike rack for a Honda CRV made in 2003

    The girlfriend is about to buy a fatbike (mukluk) and needs a rack for her car.

    Any suggestions as to what will work well?

    Bike rack for a Honda CRV made in 2003

    Fat bike trays are pricey. I'd get a Saris Bones, or maybe a Yakima spare joe or something would work on the spare tire.

    Hitch rack? Your standard hanging type will be cheap and should work fine. Or you get into pricey options like the Thule t2 or the 1up. Both should fit the fat tires.
    I use an old hanging style Yakima on my Jeep, and Thule side arm on the work truck.

    I have a 2000 CRV and use a Thule hitch rack to carry my Pug.

    I was gonna suggest a yak frontloader for the roof, but I am 6'2" and a stud and struggle to get my bikes loaded on top. I have a saris trunk rack I configured to mount on tailgate. I like it more than a hitch rack cuz I don't have to move it out of the way every time I need to open the tailgate.

    I have a 2006, same thing, and I do have a full Thule crossbar and bike rack setup on the roof, but I use a Thule Spare Me for my fatbike and cargo bike. It would be the cheapest route she could go.

    I use a 14' NRS strap running between the top tube and my rear crossbar for both peace of mind (and to slightly unweight the cargo bike) but for the fat bike it isn't necessary.

    Do not, however, buy a cheap spare tire rack! Get a Thule or Yakima.
