I'm looking for the Other Kind Of Trunk Rack. Not the kind that has two horns sticking out that you
mount your bicycle on sideways, but the kind that has fork clamps like a roof rack and your bikes
mount vertically, leaning forward over the trunk. I've seen 'em!

Mike,

Check out Draftmaster, www.draftmaster.com the model you are looking for is called Sport Flite.
Also, I just noticed that Performance now sells one of them online.
http://www.performancebike.com/shop/Profile.html?SKU=11604

I have had one similar to the one shown on Performance and I think they are an awesome way to
carry bikes.

There's a model made by (or maybe called) "En-Flight" or "En-flite." Haven't seen them for sale for
a number of years. That's all I can remember about them right now, sorry I can't be more help.

The leading brand of that style was "Elite". Haven't seen 'em lately.

Enflite is what I have, I bought it 10+ years ago, to the best of my knowledge it is now the
Draftmaster Sportflite. This was based on a search for enflite sometime back which led me to
draftmaster. It is a great concept which I think far surpasses traditional trunk racks. Much more
secure for bike are car.

Hello, Mike Elliott ! You wrote: I have a rack like you describe made by Rhode Gear. I don't think
they make them any more.

I apologize. As someone else noted that's "Enflite" .

As a relative newbie to biking, I'm also considering a trunk rack. What are the pros and cons of
racks that have the bikes mounted "vertically rather than sideways".
