bike rack for SUV..NON hitch mounted


where can i get one that will work well and isn't a zillionty five dollars?


ok, upon further evaluation, i do not have a hitch
i assumed since i had a monster gas sucking V8 SUV, it would have a hitch. i was mistaken.

do i need to buy a hitch and then a bike rack, OR is there another way to put a bike on the back of an SUV.

They have some at Dick's, but I've heard a lot of the hitch ones are kind of rickety, so I haven't really looked at them much as far as price and what not.

yakima kingpin 2

I have one and love! Many dont fit snug but this one does and has a bolt to tighen through so it does fit snug. Had tilt lever at base and arms fold down too.

They are about $150

What kind of SUV? Does it have an exterior spare? Does it have roof racks already built in? Two doors or four doors? Too many variables without info.

Go to http://www.yakima.com/ and see what you need. Click "Fit My Car" at the top.

If you have a SUV, drop the seats and throw it in the back. If it's a nice bike, buy a frickin' hitch.

Are you sure you don't have one? Some of them are covered with a plate on the bumper, like so:






I know its a small pic, but you get the idea.

Yeah, even one of those girly 1 1/4 receivers is usually on an SUV.

I bought a hitch from Honda for my CR-V and threw a Yamika hitch mount bike rack on the back and its the best thing I've ever done. People don't tailgate me anymore and it kept my bumper intact when a drunk frat guy ran into me on Highland one night.
