Bike rack to borrow?
POSTED: 7/02/09 11:33 AM

Hi,
Does anyone have a trailer-hitch mounted bike rack that I can borrow for tomorrow?

I'm planning on driving out to Sandy Point tomorrow with my gf to get a swim/bike in, and I have a zipcar pickup truck but on the way back I need to swing through Baltimore to pick up some furniture, and am worried our bikes wont fit with the furniture in the truck bed.

Thanks!
Matt

furniture or bikes? I think we know the answer to this. Btw, your gf should be totally cool w/ holding 2 sets of wheels for a one hour's drive.

also, not all trucks/suvs have hitches installed. Mine didn't but it's not a fancy zipcar, either.

If you end up with an SUV instead of a pick-up, I have a trunk mount that would work on an SUV gate that you are welcome to borrow. We're leaving town around 8am tomorrow morning, though, so we'd have to work out the details today or early tomorrow.

Keep me posted if you think this might work.

Travis, that would be great - would the rack fit on a Honda Element?

If so I'll just change my zipcar order. My email is matthew.longley@gmail.com, send me a note and where you are, I can pick up the rack at whatever times works for you tonight.

thanks!
