    Mach 6 on bike rack?

    Hello,
    I have a Mach 6 on order and was just thinking about fitting it to my Thule bike rack. The bike rack is one of those hitch-mount versions that have two horizontal bars that you strap the top tube onto. It looks like the rear shock of the bike will really get in the way, anyone have any luck mounting this bike to a similar style bike rack?

    Thanks

    The adapter usually connects to a seat post, which is a problem with dropper post. Honestly, with the amount of money you just spent on a Mach 6, you really should get a platform rack. Cradle style racks are fine for city bikes or bikes you don't care about; not so much for multi thousand $$$ carbon rigs.

    Ugh, the wife won't want to hear about that! It is a good point though.
