Are you kidding me? If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Not everybody has enough money to buy another car to tow their stuff around. They work with what they got. And in his case, he uses his Camaro. Bonus is that he can take it off when he is not using it and he is back to riding normal.

What's the problem here?

It's a car, not a statue.

I lot of people like to say what other people do is wrong because it's not what they would do. Time to realize we all have different reasons for doing stuff.

I like it. Better than trying to shoe-horn the bike in the trunk or using a roof rack.

I bet most the haters just sit in front of the computer all day. My bet would be you could probably use a good bike ride.

Interesting. I too would like to see what the bumper looks like without the rack on.

Which Thule hitch mounted bike rack do you recommend? (for my suburban)
Added a photo to the OP. I got an Apex 4 Bike. I got it for 25% off at REI. They have a Thule sale several times a year.

Hey OP, that looks awesome. I actually admire people using their cars for multiple uses.

I gotta ask, what trailer hitch do you have? I see all the links for the bike rack but noen for the hitch unless I missed it. How much was it, how hard to install? Can you use it with an actual trailer?

Sorry for the 21 questions... haha
