Bike rack for Bug??(3 posts)

Bike rack for Bug??JBurton
Jun 3, 2002 6:06 PM
I have a Saris Roof rack on my Cherokee. Unfortunately, my fiance' drives that car most days, including days that I would like to go places to ride. My other car is a 1971 Bug, which I love, but my other half refuses to drive ( air, smells like exhaust).

Any Ideas about a trunk (deck lid) mount bike carrier would fit a classic Bug? I have asked Saris, Thule, and Yakima with no responses. It seems like I have seen a Saris Bones rack on the back of a bug before.

It is sort of comical to think of putting $5,000 worth of bikes on a $1,000 car, huh? It is, however, quite a feat to take apart a bike to fit inside a Bug, not to mention two or three (road, mountain, friend's)...not much room left for me, much less a passenger.

I actually saw a rack in my LBS that was specifically for a bug. I don't remember off hand what rack it was, but I'll try and make a phone call or stop by this week and find out. If you're still interested, let me know and I'll forward the info on.
Thanks, man. That would be great. (nm)JBurton
