The spoiler on a street car is the undeniable victory of form over function.

This rack might work depending on how high the spoiler is. I had a '90 Eagle Talon with a wing back in the day and I just flipped the whole rack over so the curve was over the spoiler. Later I just broke down and got a proper Thule roof rack. Function won.


I contacted Bell Sports and complained about the lack of downloadable manuals. They said they are in the process of developing the website which will provide them.

It has some basic stuff about helmets and tire changing right now. Stay tuned and check it once in a while.

In the meantime, they sent me the manual for the Doubleback/Tripleback Car Rack in English since that was the one I used as an example.

If you post your email to this solution I will be notified and will send it to you.

What is the normal pulse for an 89 year old male?

There is a wide variation in "normal" resting heart rates. On average for you without knowing your weight or fitness, 70-80 bpm resting. If you have any concerns, get along and see your doctor, who can listen and feel for any abnormalities, and maybe recommend a few tests.

Will my class 1 hitch support a hitch mounted bike rack and bikes?

perhaps. It is always best to check with the manufacturer of the bike rack you will be using. Some manufacturers do not recommend the use of their racks with class 1 hitches. Those that have bike racks to work with class 1 hitches typically have very specific weights, specifications, and may even limit the number of bikes allowable. Just remember, when calculating the weight of your load don't forget to add in the weight of the bike rack itself. B&W Trailer hitches are great for this job.

Is there a weight limitation for carrying roof bicycle racks/bike

I wouldn't think there is a limitation, but I would be sure that it would hod the bikes and the bike rack too. Just be careful when you go thru McDonalds driveway. Lol. Hope this helps!?

Hi there i have a ZZR1100 1995 the bike is fantastic but when i take the bike above 80mph the front end feels light and the back feels unstable ??? it has had new boots no better and has a givi wing rack...

hi jason,the first thing that springs to mind is that the bike was not designed to have topboxes mounted to them,as the topbox will upset the aerodynamics of the bike and the weight distribution,even the honda goldwings with all of their hard luggagr have a warning from the factory about not exceeding120kph with hard mounted luggage,for the reason i mentioned above,however if you check the steering head bearing tension and compensate for the extra weight carried by adjusting the compression settings on your front and rear susspension,and lifting yourtyre pressure by a couple of psi front and rear it may help to aleviate some of the problems you have,hope this helps

1996 850 spoiler

You will obviously need a spoiler, but also a fitting kit which is available from Volvo. It fits onto the inside of the tailgate. Will take about half an hour to fit.
