    Bike Trunk Rack that will fit DH bike

    I need a bike rack, the ones that you put on your trunk and tie down where the bike is behind the whole car. I need it to be able to fit a 2006 Specialized Big Hit FSR 1 and a Raleigh m80 Hardtail.
    Does anyone know any that will work
    Thanks

    Hitch mounted bike rack is the way to go. Specially if hauling a 40lbs+ bike. Trunk mounts will most likely always scratch the paint everytime you use it. Also they aren't as solid as a hitch mount bike rack is. Look into getting a hitch put on and a hitch mounted rack.

    Agree, but if you're set on getting a trunk mount, just get one of those Yakima adaptors that run from the stem to the seat-post. Problem solved. ( actually have one of these from when I had a trunk rack, but have kept it for the rare occasion that I need to hang my bike from someone else's hitch or trunk-mounted rack.

    BTW: the adaptor is usually around $30 and can be found at any LBS, REI, Performance, Dicks, (and probably walmart or target, but I dunno).
