I'm interested in getting a bike rack to transport my new CTY 1.1 step through (XS) bike. I was thinking of getting a trunk mounted rack that would attach to a Civic Hatchback. How do I find out what models will be compatible?
@RHoward great question! Here are a few considerations:
How many bikes do you want to carry? Just yours, or another 1-2?
For a step-thru bike, you'll need a top tube adaptor - these work on bikes up to 45lbs (this is plenty for your bike)
Make sure the weight of your bike is covered by the rack you choose (again, your bike is light enough for the trunk mounts we carry)
You can use our vendors' fit guides to ensure compatibility between your car the bike rack
Here's a curated list from REI.com of trunk-mounted bike racks; you'll see a link to the Thule and Yakima fit guides at the top. From there, you'll identify the type of rack you want (bike rack for the trunk) and enter your car's information (year, make, model); this will provide you with options that are compatible. Hope this helps!
