I am looking for a rear bike rack for our Odyssey. Has anyone heard of any? I heard of the Bones Rack which holds 3. I really need 4 but 3 will do. I really don't want to get a hitch but I realized I might.
Thanks

In the "Tech" section there's a page for the Yakima bike rack.

Thanks for the reply. I would rather not install a hitch. I was quoted $500 then I would need the bike rack. So I am still looking for one that goes on the back without a hitch.

Rose-

I bought a hitch and 4 bike hitch rack for under $275..

Bike rack is a Yak. Big Horn 4 bike for a 2" receiver from http://www.ageebike.com/

I just checked their site, this rack is selling for $159 with free shipping. Plus you'll get $31 to spend on whatever.. I got the part that allows you to strap the wheels down which I would recommend. (don't know what it is called)

Then I bought the hitch from http://www.thehitch.com/ for about $100 or so. It was easy to install since there is no need to install the wiring harness, just 6 bolts to attach to the frame. Here are the instructions I used to do this.

I have been very happy with this setup and it is a quality rack. The fact that this is the only setup I will load my $2000 road bike on speaks well of it I think.

My other car is a VW Jetta so I get lots of mail from VW. Take a look at this bike rack that VW sells for it's minivan.



Maybe something like this will be made for the Odyssey.

I'm not sure if anyone manufactures a rear bike rack for the Ody or other minivans.
I ended up buying fork mounts from an online store for only $15/ea. Mounted them to the under side of the third row. 3 bikes fit perfectly even with the second row seats.
