View Full Version : Best "Trunk Rack" for Honda Accord??
08-21-2007, 04:37 PM
My GF is looking for a trunk-fitting bike rack for her 2006 Honda Accord. I have looked at all three "big" brands (Saris, Thule and Yakima) and I was wondering which rack is the most user friendly and is easy to take on and off...The Thule model appears to have a ton of blue strings while the Saris model looks pretty simple (bones model). Anyone have any experience? I would appreciate the help!
i recently picked up the yakima little joe 3 here: http://www.backcountry.com/store/YAK0157/c4/s11/Yakima-Little-Joe-3-Bike-Capacity.html?id=7pN4RiDI
a friend of mine bought the super joe 3, which is more expensive cause it has those bumpers to set the bike frames in and the top arm is more adjustable, but i actually like the little joe better since you can slide it into the smaller sections on some of today's frames (and thus avoid having to hang you bike where the cables run). Ended up needing it for our recent road trip and shuttle runs and it was surprisingly bomber for such a little rack. looks like it's on sale right now too.

The Saris Bones RS is the most stable rack I've ever seen, it's also the easiest to set up once you get used to it and it locks to the car.

Yea, like gravitylover said, get the Saris Bones. Reliable, and easy to: use, secure, store, and very little or no impact on bike or car. Some frames however, may need the "bike beam".

It's the new RS that I really like. At this point I have setup down to under 2 minutes on just about any car.
