I've seen a trunk-mount rack where the bikes are mounted side by side, vertically, front wheel up, rear wheel down, instead of horizontally, stacked one behind the other.
I can't remember who makes it. Does anyone know, and is it any good?

I ahve one at home, I don't believe it's a Delta. I'll check it out when I get home, I'm at work. I also don't use it, it could be had for cheap.

I have one in my basement too. Its a Rhode Gear rack. I bought it about 6 years ago, but I don't see it on their web site anymore. It worked pretty well for a trunk model with straps (though I like my Saris Bones better), it just wouldn't fit my new car.

Will sell cheap too. :)

I have one...it's currently on my brother's car 120 miles away. It adjusts to fit nearly any vehicle. Mine has been on everything from an Explorer to a Galant.

rhode gear used to make one called the euro shuttle. FWIW its a POS... Save your pennies and get one for the top of your car...
