    I'm looking to buy a rear bike rack to carry one, sometimes 2, racks on the back of my "3. Does anyone know of any potential problems (scratches, weakening hinges, etc) and how these might be avoided/which rack is best to purchase.

    It's for a Specialized FSR so the fit may be a bit particular.

    Thanks in advance

    MPB,

    I bought one from halfords about 6 months ago, It's made by a company called Saris and the model is called bones,it cost me about £65 I think

    It was good for what i needed as it can take 3 bikes if needs be and can be folded down easily, plus it has rubber feet so it doesn't scratch the car.

    If you do get one, the only tip I would give you is to take some pieces of cloth to put between the clips / feet and the paintowrk just in case.

    Hope it helps

    Halfords also sell some clear sticky plastic to protect the paint where the hooks fasten the rack to the car. Made by Foliatec, does a good job of protecting your vehicle.
