    Rack for VT?

    I am looking to buy a rack and had the Saris Bones 2 recommended for the VT in the General forum.

    My question is with a trunk based rack like that how can I avoid getting the underside of the top tube all scratched up by cable rub on a rack like that?

    I am kinda tapped after the new bike purchase to afford a roof rack.

    Thanks,
    C

    Thule 982 Frame Adapter

    or similar item. It's a bar that attaches to your stem and your seatpost so you can hang that on the rack rather than through the frame. It's necessary on some FS bikes like my Warp. You can get it at Performance, $27. Here's the link: http://www.performancebike.com/shop/....cfm?SKU=14511

    i got a thule clip on rack and it works fine with my VT....

    although the clip ons only seem to work with wagons or hatches.. not sedans

    i got a golf so it is no prob.....

    i love my rack, so easy to fit on and off and sit very very securely
