    Been riding my bike more and more lately and I think it is finally time for me to purchase a way for me to take it with me even when I need to drive places.

    I only need a 2-Bike rack for now and have been looking at this one:
    Graber 2-Bike Trunk Rack

    Since this would be my first, I have no idea what I am looking for necessarily. It will be going on a 2001 Intrepid, so it will have to rest on some awkward curves in the trunk/bumper.

    Just want some opinions and user experience on these things before I go out and actually buy one.

    And I'd like to stay under $100, the more the better. Also not opposed to buying used, just need to know what to look for.

    Thanks.

    Well, went down the street to a garage sale and got lucky.

    Best Garage Sale Ever.

    They had a Graber Guardian 2-Bike Trunk Rack that didn't fit their car and they lost the receipt. Had it for a year and were selling it for $25. They let me try it on my trunk before buy and it works like a charm.

    Still interested in people's opinion on bike racks and things I should look out for while driving around with it on.

    Thanks.
