Is anyone considering how they will haul a bike?

I would like to put a trailer hitch style rack on the back if possible for my road bike.

I plan to use my existing rack which does not need a hitch.

Bike rack that does not require hitch looks like this and many more types of similar models.

I'm hoping Yakima will come out with mounts for a roof rack, on which to carry bikes, surfboard etc using our existing crossbars and accessories.

I am thinking they will like they do for any new model car. It would just be new clips and maybe the towers too.

Kat,

Any idea if the Thule 961XT Speedway 2 Bike Trunk Rack will also fit a Prius?

Thanks,
Mitch

Not sure, Mitch. I just posted a picture of that one to illustrate a trunk rack that needs no hitch. But I have something very similar and I have used it on all different kinds of cars. I just adjust the straps to fit the type of car.

Has anybody who has a leaf found out if they can mount a receiver hitch? I have two bike racks and they both mount onto receivers. I had a receiver mounted on both my gen 1 and gen 2 Prius and my fiancé has one on her Kia soul. Anyhow I'd like to install one on my leaf once I get it and was wondering if anybody has already done some of the legwork finding a way to install one.

My car is being measured by Yakima so they will likely have something soon.

So far I have been folding down the rear seats and throwing the bike in the back. Kind of a pain.
