We sell Bianchi, that was a delivery for a customer. Bicycle is a Bianchi Pista Sei Giorni.

It is a track bike but with a flip flop hub so you can run a single freewheel.

In my younger days I had a steel frame Bianchi as my daily rider. Smoothest riding bike I ever had. I miss those days

One reason we carry them, they still do steel(cr-mo) bike frames!

Very nice!

Is the white on the chain paint or powder coat?

The rack is an Apex 4 Bike. I got it for 25% off at REI. They have a Thule sale several times a year.

Here you can see that the hitch is almost undetectable.



I bought the hitch from and had it installed at a professional trailer/hitch place near me. About $230 out the door. Took them about an hour. This is the hitch:

Looks like a wrench only install, correct?

These Camaros are cool cars, but folks we're not talking about a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder here. These cars live in the real world. $30K Chevys will need to serve as mules once in a while.

I've debate over and over again if I should put a hitch on my Camaro. My biggest reason not to is self-control. Even if I am towing something, I might have a hard time staying off the pedal on the right

Overall, I think it would be much safer to get a beater truck or car to do my towing for me. Either that, or isn't that what friends and family are for??

This is interesting to me, I often take wheels off my road bike and put it in the trunk, it's a tight fit for sure. Yesterday I got a newish used roadbike so now I'm really interested in getting a set up like yours.

I'd like the rack to only hold 2 bikes, is the one they sell for 2 bikes going to fit that hitch?

If this ends up in my purchase, I'll enjoy not having to remove the wheels and re-install them each time, plus the potential to damaging spokes (on my new wheels)..I've gotten a few minor scratches on the frame allready and not to mention the inside of my car's orange paint near the trunk's hinge.

Thanks for the post, the bike shop I got it from looked on the website of the brand rack they sell but none were fits for the Camaro. So your post was a big help,,ignore the haters, they probably either don't ride or have other cars/truck to use.

Works great, use it for my bicycles and delivering customers bicycles!
Have over 100k miles on a 2011 and customers really like their bicycles delivered in STYLE.
Wait till the car gets wrapped and graphics get put on, ha, the howling will really start!
Ha, just noticed your tag is "BIKEDOC"..cool..and your from Michigan like me. I don't anybody else can see it, but the THULE brand (in blackswann's posts) does not appear to have brake/signal lights mounted on the rack as yours does.

It seems it would need them cause a bike might obsure or block your brake/signal lights.

I'm not against putting your bike on your Camaro...It's a car. I like to put my road bike in the trunk, if I fold down the back seats, my bike as well as all my gear fit perfectly

Yep. If you take your time and remove both wheels I can get two road bikes in my car. People are blown away by that when u show up, they assume I forgot my bikes!
