    Mazda3 (or similar) with T2...pictures?

    i'm curious to see what kind of ground clearance you guys have with a T2 (bikes loaded) and Hidden Hitch installed. i'm trying to decide if i want to convert my T2 to 1.25", or go with a roof rack on my 3 hatch. i have a steep incline getting out of the parking garage where i live. don't want the rack to bottom out.

    Get the roof

    I have a 2005 3 hatch. The hitch rack would be a problem because of very little clearance. If you want pics of my 3 hatch with my thule rack to see what it loks like I could attatch one. Let me know. Tim
    29ers are more fun!

    I'd like to see it, because I'm considering a 3 as my economical go-anywhere cool ride.
    yep...

    I had a 2002 Protege 5 with a hidden hitch, and the Sportworks T2 rack, and It works perfectly. I have taken the car off road with no issues. I even have the car lowered 1".

    I have the T2 / Drawtite hitch on an '05 WRX wagon which is similar in ride height to the "3", and I have no issues. I am really happy with this setup.
