Any thoughts on mounting a bike rack? I'm pretty sure I don't want to install a hitch. It's already pretty low in the back. I was thinking on something like this. Any ideas?

I think I'd like a roof rack. Idk how that would work with a sunroof tho.

I am all about the Thule!

Nevermind the WRX in this picture... ;)


Another really good brand is Yakima. Seems like there are always some out there on Craigslist.

I would personally buy the fit kit for the Fiesta, and then see what I could find out on the internets! A rack system can add up quick.

I WOULD NOT trust the "stick on" racks with both my car, and my bike, but that is just me.

The Sea Sucker rack actually works really well! But, it can flex on a longer hatch roof (like on my Scion pictured below) which is why they often show it attached to the glass. I think I'll be doing a Thule roof rack once I get my own personal FiST ;)

Sounds good! A group of us at COBB usually ride on Tuesdays after work and on the weekends. The only problem is that carbon bike parts cost almost as much as car parts and we can't prevent ourselves from modding things...

How does a thread about a bike rack get started and have traffic in the "performance section". I guess if stickers add power a bike rack can too.

I would think the best way with a seasucker would be to hang it off the back, like shown on the first post. A friend of mine did that on an suv with no problems. I have a Yakima on my evo and it scratched the paint, where it clamps on. Just my 2 cents.

Yeah, racks should at about 10whp! LOL...
