That Saris solo looks legit. Aslong as it works with my spoiler that's what I'll probably pick up. Thanks.

My thoughts exactly... plus the towing options that badazz talked about.

Dude the solo is a piece of crap. DO NOT BUY ONE. If you get a truck mount, get the Yakima Quickback 3 or the Saris Bones 3.

Guys, I work at a bike shop and I am a dealer of Yakima, Thule, and Saris.

I own a 2008 SES Coupe and I am ordering the Yakima roof rack system. YES, A ROOF RACK FOR A 2 DOOR. Yakima makes a "stretch kit" for 2 doors. I always encourage my customers to get a roof rack system because when you do, you have limitless possibilities -bike, skies, snowboards, boats/kayaks, heck we can make our cars look like they are about to go on a safari or a rally by mounting a roof basket on top with a tire mount. THAT WOULD LOOK SOOOOO COOL!

If you decide to purchase the roof rack and then sell it later, it's all good for the next owner because all they need is their own Q-tower clips for their own car. What that means for you is a bigger return on your investment.

If you guys decide to get a truck mounted bike rack, I recommend either the Yakima Quickback 3, or the Saris Bones 3. Both should fit over the factory spoiler (my Quickback3 fits perfectly. I just get sick of worrying about scratching the paint... whick is why I'm getting the roof rack in the first place)

Let me know if you guys have any questions.

If your getting the roof rack system, and want bike mounts get the Frontloader. It can hold bikes ranging in sizes from a little kid's 20" to the big 29er mountain bikes.

Here are some of the pros to this bike mount
-The mount can attach to many SUVs and wagon FACTORY crossbars: easy to sell afterwards
-Mount holds on to the bike's wheels: doesn't damage the frame's paint
-Don't have to remove the front tire
-SKS locks can be used on this rack: rack can't be stolen off of your roof

apparently you don't have friends... just jokin. The 3 will give you more room if needed, even when you are just transporting 2 bikes.
