    Anyone know of a bike rack that will fit a 06 Dodge Magnum

    The title says it all. I've looked and it seems like a bike rack hasn't been developed for this car. Its a company vehicle so I can't make major changes... Does anyone have any suggestions on a rack system for this car???
    Thanks

    Buddy of mine drives an 05 Magnum wagon and it is also his company car. He has a hitch mount, do not know what brand, but it is the type that the bike sits in the tracks and has the spring loaded bar that goes over the front wheel to hold it in place. I haven't heard no complaints about it and it gets alot of use. If you would like, I'll give him a holler an find out what it is.

    I have an 05 Dodge Magnum and use the Sportswork Transport T2, which is now sold by Thule. I bought the OEM Dodge hitch receiver and the separate 2" receiver, 2 different peices 2 different part numbers. This set up is pretty cool because when you are not using the 2" receiver, you can actually remove it and you can hardly tell that you have a tow hitch. I like the Transport T2 bike carrier because it's very easy to put bikes on and take them off. I don't have any pictures of this set up right now, but can take some this weekend.

    according to Thule, there is no roof rack for your car if you don't have a factory roof rack.

    there is a hitch mount option here:

    Talked to my buddy on the phone 5 minutes ago. He uses a Sportworks, which I think now is Thule, T2. He told me he uses a 1.25" hitch, because that is all that will fit under his Magnum. I see that Konnichiwa says that he is using a 2" receiver, but either way, I'm sure if you get a hitch put on your car, you will figure out which one will work. He really likes it and says the only problem with it is that it does sit low to the ground, so you have got to be careful in places that could cause it to drag. He did say that there is an accessory that supposedly raises it up a couple inches.

    Here is what it looks like http://www.go-ride.com/prod_racks_sw.html

    Oh yea, as Brian mentioned, you do have to watch out as the rack will be sitting pretty low. Here is a pic of my set up.
