Hollywood Boomer Bar Ladies Bike Car Rack Mount. This is an outstanding way to mount Full Suspension or Ladies Bikes to Car Racks. When you do not have a full length Top tube it is often really hard to install your bike on a car rack. The Hollywood Boomer Bar quickly adapts your bike to fit most rear racks. The Boomer Bar is padded where it touches the bike seat post and the handlebar stem to keep from damaging your bicycle finish.
All of the major car rack manufacturers including, Yakima, Allen, Hollywood, Thule manufacture a ladies bike car rack adapter. They all seem to do the same thing and mount the same way. Without these adapters sometimes it is nearly impossible to mount your bike to the rack.

Bumper Mount Car Racks are a lot like Trunk mount racks. The difference is the rack is not just supported by the straps holding the rack on the car but it also rests on the bumper.
Bumper mount racks are usually a little more expensive than the basic trunk mount but often they are a bit more stable. The bumper gives the rack a lower pivot point to hold the weight of the bikes and the rack. With a Trunk mount all of the weight of the bikes and the rack will be supported by the straps going to the top of the hatch or trunk.
Always check the manufacturers fit chart to make sure the rack will fit your car.
You can usually open your trunk with a Bumper mount or trunk mount rack on your car but not while the bikes are on the rack.
Both Trunk mount and Bumper mount bicycle racks are usually easy to mount and dismount after you have done it once or twice.
Many Bumper mount Bicycle racks will collapse to a fairly small size to store in your trunk or in your garage while they are not in use.
