    Hi, I want to purchase a bike rack for my 2005 9-5 saloon, but the options are confusing. Is there a generally accepted good buy? I don't have a towbar so I'm looking at roof or rear strap mount. This one looks ok - has anyone tried it, and does it obscure the tail lights/plate...

    Hi Has anyone tried a tow bar mount plus two bikes on an Aero Convertible 55 reg.....or is there a better way of doing it? Any help and advice appreciated. Also, any good ideas for a discreet iPhone mount - my dash is the slightly older one. Thanks, Billy

    Hi, I have p/n 12791386 (http://an online retailer/product_info.php?cPath=29_133&products_id=952) which used to be fitted to my 93 before I uptraded for the 93 convertible. It is a great bike rack and I loved the pneumatic lifting device that assists the bikes onto the roof. I got a lot of...

    I fished out my old (1990) Paddy Hopkirk bike rack today, but couldn't get it to fit my 2002 9-5 Linear estate. Does anyone have any recommendations for transporting two adult bicycles on my car, either with a rack on the boot or roof bars. BTW I don't have a tow bar on my car.

    Hi, Before I bother putting this on ebay is anyone interested in my 4 bike rack - I had it attached to the tow bar on my 2005 9-3. It's from the Saab dealer - all you need is the tow bar mount suitable for a swan neck bar - it comes with the swan neck and all the other bits. I only used it a...

    Whilst watching MotoGP recently, I noticed that the GP bikes have a gear change system that is reversed compared to a road bike. In other words, where a road bike gear change is "first gear down and the rest up", on the gear lever", a GP bike is "first up and the rest down". Does anyone know...

    Got a 9-3 Hatch coupe and need a bike rack. No Tow bar fitted, and bike stores don't seem to have one that would not catch the spoiler (standard). Has anyone else got one, or can you advise?

    Hi, I have a silver Sportwagon without roof rails and I want to be able to carry four bikes on the roof and so for this I need some roof rails. What does everyone think is the best solution? I believe the factory roof rails cost 264+vat / Fitting £50-70 Bicycle carrier 273+VAT - and this goes...

    I’m a little red-faced to say that I’m not much of an environmentalist. I recycle, my wife and I carpool most of the time, and I’ve installed a few energy-saver light bulbs. I’m pro-biofuels but I also love giving the car a bit of welly. And whilst I once enjoyed a bit of cycling, the mere...

    We've recently acquired bikes and I'm considering the options for transporting them on the wagon (it has the rear spolier fitted). There's the roof option, but I would guess this is very heavy on fuel, or a rear-mounted rack. Does anyone have experience/recommendations of either? TIA
