would you mind posting a pic of your bike rack??So I have a rear mounted bike rack on my hatch. Clips to top and bottom of hatch with rest points on the glass and lower part of the door. Very happy with it except for one thing.
Have to be very careful not to use the wipers when backing up as the rear wiper can't complete a wipe so I'm concerned it will burn out the motor trying to get that one wipe. Forgot Sunday and had to pull over to remove the rack.
Thanks Jazz!Rear Mount Thule Raceway3

I got a simple trunk rack from a thrift store for $2 https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/vfzfhn8FY1ONGFDcWNTNiw?feat=directlinkI have contacted Yakima about this and they are working on getting their new Whispbar system ready on the 2012 Ford Focus. I am waiting for this. I have their old system (Q-Towers and It is very good and stable but doesn't look right on the Focus. It needs a more refined look, not bulky like the Q-Towers.
Im assuming most hitch racks have this feature. but my dad has a hitch rack for his truck and there is a hing on the rack so you can lower the rack to open his tailgate or say our hatchback.Has anyone tried a hitch-mounted bike rack on the hatchback? I have a Thule bike rack I used with my previous car, but I'm wondering if it'd be practical as im afraid it would obstruct use of the hatch door.
