    Default Rear fit bike carrier for an estate?

    As title. Been doing some more far flung bike rides of late with "team midlife crisis" and this usually involve digging out the rear kids seats folding down the rear seats and plonking a couple of bikes in the back. But as the bike are getting more expensive and the constant in out of kids seats is getting more of a pain I'm looking at getting a bike rack for the old bus. Anyone got one or recomend one for the VXR body kitted estate?

    Cheers in advance.
    Ken-tec FTW.

    One of these should do you fine. The bottom bar will sit on the top of the bumper against the boot door, and the middle bar on the rear windscreen.

    I use the same one on my SRI, and it works a charm. Only down side is you have to remove the whole thing to access the boot.

    This one is much the same, but a bit more expensive.. but it gives you a good idea how it will sit on an estate car
