    Just wondering if anyone has a car bike rack?

    I'm looking for a bike rack to go on the back of my Focus hatch so that I can cart my Downhill bike around. I had a look in Halfords today and they seemed to have two kits, one that was about £36 and held two bikes and another much more expensive one which could hold three but required a fitting kit which is car dependant.

    I don't want to spend that much and the place I use my mountain bike isn't that far away, but I'm fed up of removing my front wheel and having to wedge it into my boot. Anyone used one of these? Are they safe?

    I never had a problem with them, but that was a few years ago, was a halfords one too, seemed ok. Now we just picked up by a mate who has a truck that has a 9 bike bike rack ;).
