Bike Rack?

Anyone have or know specifically what bike rack will fit the cube?
Is there a roof mount one available?

Re: Bike Rack?

Yamika does not make rear mounted - I dont know about roof racks- but they will send you to a custom shop for installation. I am still looking for a bike rack and will let you know if i find one....

Re: Bike Rack?

What if you have a Cube with a spoiler on it? Would the straps put to much pressure on it, or scratch the paint?

I would not recommend using the saris with a spoiler. I'd look to Yakima, and their roof racks if I were you.

I think i'm going to wait until they make a trailer hitch for the Cube and get a hitch mount bike rack.

Just got an email back from Curt Manufacturing and they are working on a hitch now.



We are working on a hitch for the CUBE right now. We actually hope to release a this hitch within the next two weeks.

Thank you,

Does the bike hanging back there set off the sonar or do they only work when your in reverse?

Sonar is going haywire when there is a bike on the rack.. its pretty useless at that point. but no biggie..
