    Suggested trunk bike rack for a Racer X size L

    Hi guys,

    wonderig of any of you are carring your Racer X in trunk mounted car rack?...
    I just purchased a Racer X size large, and then my rack does not fit very well my new frame,...
    the Racer X size L has a support beam from the seat tube to the top tube that actually reduces the space between the shock & the top tube, available space is smaller than in a size M frame.

    The option would be to insert a rack's arm in the triangle created between the top tube, seat tube & support tube..but my current rack does not fit in that space.

    any suggestions????

    Yakima makes an adaptor for full suspension bikes to make them easier to carry on trunk/hitch mount racks. Here's a link:

    My hollywood rack does exactly that and works great. Can you trim/bash/adapt your existing rack to suit?
