Hitch racks are bomber and roof racks are reliable, but the former is expensive (especially if you don't already have a hitch receiver) and the latter ruins your gas mileage and requires all sorts of parts. When it comes to ease of use, efficiency, and affordability, it's tough to top the Thule Gateway 2-Bike Rack, which attaches securely onto the hatch of almost any vehicle, holds two bikes safely, and folds up for easy storage when you're not using it. Thule's FitDial adjustment system ensures that the nylon straps will cinch down to your hatch to prevent slippage, and the Cinch Lever system allows you independently adjust each arm, which means you can carry bikes with unique frames. The Stay-Put cradles and anti-sway cages keep your bikes from banging into each other or into the car--you have to keep that candy-apple paint job fresh, after all--and the curved arms provide enough clearance to clear most small spoilers, so you don't have to give up downforce on the road (because you definitely need all the help you can get to keep your jalopy stuck to the pavement).

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
