Hi all

I'm UK based, new to this forum and have just received my iX - it's a great car.

I occasionally want to transport bikes so just want a rear mounted bike rack (not least as they are far easier to store). Has anyone looked into this yet? In general, rear mounted ones fit estates / SUVs but none appear to have updated their car fit selectors for the iX (and not much point proxying with the X5 as that has a split tailgate). I don't want a hitch / tailgate fitting bike rack given the sheer size to store and expense for infrequent use. The Thule racks explicitly fit the X3 and some places say the Saris Bones racks fit the widest vehicles including the X5. Has anyone had any experience of this yet?

Many thanks

MikeB

It's only the hitch mounted ones which fold down I think. I have a hitch in my other car and use a bike rack on that, and the hitch mounted ones are excellent.
