I love my Thule and it fit on my Fiesta, as well as the rental focus with very little effort to make the change.

Saris "Bones" is by far the best. It has the easiest adjustable straps to tighten up your bike plus the added bonus of an extra strap to stabilize the bikes. I got mine on line at Dicks with a coupon for about $140. PLUS it comes in many colors to match your car. I bought the red one.

I have been really happy with my Saris rack. It adjusts to different cars very well--I've mounted it to a sedan and station wagon and to an SUV without encountering any problems. It hasn't even damaged the paint.

Here's a link so you know what it looks like. As always, I encourage you to buy from your local bike shop. That way if you are having issues with getting it adjusted you can take it to them for some help.

Hi Ladies,
I was just wondering if anybody has suggestions for the best trunk mounted bike carrier?
I have a Toyota Corolla and I can take my front wheel off and put it in the trunk but that is a pain and it causes issues with my bike.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Becky
