Ok guys need a little help, who here is into mountain biking? I am and now that I got my riv back on the road running nice and smooth with new subframe mounts and tires I want to start using it to haul a bike or 2 to trails. I've been using my 3000gt for a while by folding the rear seats down but that car is too low for alot of the trails I like. Installing a hitch is out of the question since I'm running a big single exhaust coming straight out of the back bumper so my only option is really a trunk mounted rack. Anyone try one on their riv?

I have the Thule, no complaints. Riv trunk is tricky to fit but that's why you want a Thule - follow the directions carefully.

Can't go wrong with Yakima or Thule. These brands are popular when it comes to racks.

No, sorry. Thule has a nice web site, though.

Hello.  I use a Saris Bones on my 95 every day in my commute.   Easy to install and remove.  I epoxied a couple Simpson Strong Ties underneath the bumper to hold the bottom straps.  I also put some clear film on the body where the pads touch.  Happy with it.
