Gary, just go to a good bike shop and pick up either a Yakima or Thule rack - they're both excellent pieces. And definitely go with one that uses a fork mount rather than a clamp to the downtube on the bike. That's how I always carried my bikes when I was racing (other than when I drove a minivan) and never had problems, even with 3 bikes on the roof of a BMW going 90mph!

Im just worried that the clamps will compresseon the hood and make indentations on the roof. I have a Yakima rack I used with my Grand Prix and after a few years when the rack was removed you can see the marks on the roof. p.s. Bill, I can't use the rear rack due to the fact I have a Xenon spoiler. Gary
