It depends if you have a hitch or not.I would go to e trailer and give you car information and by the way that is my car on there with instructions on putting on a hitch and a video with a non hitch bike rack.
I personally think getting a hitch is the way to go and a hitch bike rack.
I can load and unload our bikes in a couple of minutes with a hitch type bike rack.

I agree with Playthru1.

Installing a hitch and then getting a hitch-based bike rack is the easiest long-term.

The strange thing is the bikes or the rack did not mess with The sensors I had.I thought I would have to turn them off when the bikes were loaded.

What? I dont see a hitch spot on the cx3.. Anybody else have a bike rack that works?
Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms
Item # Y02634 Go to etrailer and check it out and it will work without a hitch.A hitch and a hitch rack is still the way to go.They used my car for this video as they were installing a hitch the same day.

Curt Hitch

Just installed, but also now have the benefit if needed can tow a box trailer.

Just also fitted is a Swagman G10 Hitch Mount Rack, very strong and very easy to load bikes, which weigh 12k+ each, plus the added benefit of now being able to drive into places without the worry of destroying the Bikes and Roof of the Car when they were up there.

I used to mount 2 x Mountain Bikes on Roof Rack Carriers.

Got all my details and ideas from e trailer, very good site with plenty of info.

Will try to get some pics up soon just waiting on some good weather over here in Sydney.

I always refer to the old saying of you get what you pay for, I certainly would not be putting a 6k bike on a $30 eBay rack, but that's me.

Nice Rack !!!!



I've got the hitch and thule 2 bike rack. Love it but definitely cost more then 50..
Bet you have never heard that one before, lol.:)

Nice set up, I have a Swagman G10 Platform on my Car, very sturdy easier to load than my old roof rack set up, and now don't have to worry about driving into places with low roof heights anymore.

Plus like most modern Racks they can tilt down for easier access to the Hatch.
