    Question Anyone ever had a bike rack...

    Hi all,

    So anyone ever used a bike rack on their astra?? if so what kind did you use. I'm a bit worried that a boot mounted one wouldn't be suitable because of the spoiler? I have a 2002 hatchback.

    I really need someway of transporting my bike as i'm gettin fed up of takin out the parcel shelf and rearanging my sub and amps to squeeze the damn thing in.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Cheers guys

    I looked at all the racks for carrying our bikes but decided the best way for me was to stick them on the roof, i bought a couple of roof bars from thule and 2 bike carriers and have travelled all over europe with 2 bikes up there and had no problems at all. The only down side is i do notice a decrease in fuel economy.

    Have a look at www.roofbox.co.uk.

    go to halfrauds and but paddy hpkirk roof bars and cycle carrier, thats what i use, have carried 3 bikes on roof, no scraping of bikes or bodywork, also no restriction of rear view.

    If you have a boot mounted cycle carrier and it covers your lights and number plate legally u have to have a lighting board!!

    Amazingly, if I take of both wheels and the seat off my mountain bike, I can get it all in the boot of my coupe without putting the seats down. I can even get two bike in the boot, bar two wheels which can go on the back seat. Coupe boots are huge!!
