What is the best bike rack for the trunk? I was looking at the Bones 2 from saris.

I cant have roof rack due to my parking garage.

I use the Thule 968XT Thruway 2 (also available in 3). The Saris looks a little too curvy for my liking, and the Thule is built with purpose in mind (not to mention almost half the price). There are 6 anchor straps, and I use all (2 top, 2 bottom and 2 on the side of the trunk just above the taillights). It works really well and the rubber stops are high grade.

Nope, but I always make sure my trunk is free of dirt. I also have a piece of clear vinyl wrap on the top of the rear bumper (below the trunk) top protect it from things like the bike track, luggage etc. Bought it from here and cut it myself to fit.

The only gripe I have with trunk racks is that the pedals need to be placed strategically, otherwise they can easily dent something.

Also - the Thule can be easily dismantled to pack in luggage if you plan to rent a car and ride during trips ;-)

I have the Thule 9003 Raceway Platform 2 and love it. Sturdy, locks on the trunk and the bike and has a platform so there is no swaying. Absolutely no scratching but I do take care to make sure the spots are clean. Nor do I leave it on the trunk; it comes off when done.

So guys, I posted a little while ago that I picked up this:

Trek FX 7.2





Well, I couldn't resist and just picked up this special order:
Bianchi Infinito (excuse the drop bar position I was messing around with things)


This bike is absolutely amazing. The ride, aesthetically... I love it. Plan to enter a couple events soon with it. Anyway, enjoy.

That is awesome. I had considered that race as it would have been a nice getaway. Did you ship the bike or check it for your flight?

Do you compete in any events?

It is a nice get away. We got in the thursday before the race and stayed until the Friday after the race. Seems like that's the MO for a lot of racers as we kept running into them all over the island.

We use Tribike Transport when ever we can. It's just too easy. And if you get busted by the airlines they charge as much as $150 each way. So Tribike is about the same cost and you don't have to break your bike down for shipping. You take it to a local pick up bike shop about a week or so before the race. Then just pick it up the day before the race at the Tribike tent. Drop it off to Tribike after the race and it's home about a week or so after the race. The only prep for your bike is the shop removing and putting your pedals on. They are insured and you can ship your transition bag/gear with your bike. (no wetsuit packing for the cold swims)

I'm the official photographer when we go to races. So no, i don't participate. Her and her friends talked me into doing a sprint once. They all thought i was going to get addicted. No dice. Did the sprint and while it was fun, i was not addicted in any way. I like to bike and swim for fun, planting my ass on a bike for a 50 mile ride is not fun for me unless it's on a mountain and down hill the majority of the way. But her and her friends ride at least 40 every Saturday and then sit on the trainer for a couple of hours during the week. Doesn't look like fun to this guy.
