Help! Bike Rack(3 posts)

Help! Bike Rackmethosage

Does anyone know of a bike rack that can carry 2 bikes (also accomidate different styles: MTB Road womens etc), attach to a 1 1/4 receiver hitch, and that breaks down to fit inside a medium sized trunk.

I have looked at the Yakima, Thule, Hollywood, and Seris web sites without much luck. I think the key problem I am having is finding one I can break down and put in my trunk.

The closest I can find is to get the Thule Space station base and then put on the expressway module. The problem is that I think this will be too heavy. Because I have a Class I hitch. Plus it would be a real pain to take apart and put back together the expressway module every time.

Thanks

would a receiver hitch lock help your situation?

Unfortunately not.

The problem is my wife doesn't want the rack left on the car. She's not a bike person and doesn't like the way it looks. Considering she drives the car 90% of the time (because I bike commute to work) I suppose she has some say in the matter.
