I have a Trek remedy and need to know what is the best boot mounted rack to go for, I've got one of these at present http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stor ... yId_165477

Which is ok for traditional diamond shape frames but not ideal for full sus bike such as the remedy. It needs to fit on the back of a lexus IS, and if possible doesn't need a degree or 4 hours to take on and off. Help

Had a similar problem with the top tube being too short on a friends GT to fit the width of the arms of the bike rack.

I've never tried one, but I think you can move the arms of the Saris bones closer together: http://www.saris.com/en/bike-racks/vehi ... racks.html

I bought a Saris bones - easy to fit, secure, multi adjustable, easily takes my Orange 5, fits on the back of a BMW 3 series with no problems, so you should be OK with one of those.
