    Adding A Bike Rack

    One of the few things we need to add to our new Reflection 303 is a good bike rack to carry our fairly heavy hybrid bikes. We know that we cannot do anything that mounts to the frame. Has anyone added a bumper mount bike rack? What should we look for and what should we avoid? I would prefer a rack that let's the tires sit in the rack, rather than a tube bar. Thank you for any help.

    Re: Adding A Bike Rack

    I couldn't find a rack to carry our Beachcombers.
    So I made one.
    If you are worried about twisting your stock bumper, I would recommend getting 2 receivers...

    Mount them as close to the frame attachment points on bumper.
    Remove center tube on rack and add 2 tubes on the outside edges.
