    Looking for a cheap rack that will fit the spoiler on my car.

    Does anyone know where I can find a cheap rack under $50.00 that'll fit my trunk with the spoiler? I was thinking of getting a roof rack but it would cost me over $200 at least. I have provided a picture of the exact model of car I have. Thanks

    I just got back into mountain biking and was in your boat not too long ago. I found a deal on a used Thule base rack system and then a 1 Up USA bike rack. I'm positive you can find a used rack for $50 or less for your car or a new one for slightly more.. After a quick search I found a Saris Sentinel 2 bike rack for $75.00 at their website. Good luck!

    Trunk racks will damage the car, bumper, trunk, over time. Is that what you want? I would suggest saving up for a receiver for that car, there are several that will fit. Apart from that, the saris Bones 3-bike rack is one of the better, more stable, etc. versions of the "trunk type". It costs a bit, but I really wouldn't recommend any of the cheaper ones, they are just too cheap to justify the damage to your car, bike and poor security.

    I tried a trunk rack on an old car of mine with a spoiler. Never fit right. Hitch rack is the way to go. Call around to junk yards to get a used one, or pony up the $110 for new. Better than damaging the spoiler, plus it adds some versatility for hauling around a lightweight trail with a water ski. Used hitch racks abound on craigslist.
