So while at work today a guy pulled up with a white NSX with a bike rack on the back. All I could think about is WHY?! I would never put a bike rack on a little sports car. So I was wondering has anyone ever seen a bike rack on a Fiero? Funny thing about it is my buddy I work with told the guy "nice car". The guy responded with "watch my back". my buddy said "what about the car?", the guy said "they can take the car all I care abouts the bike".............. WHY???

Those bicycles are expensive. I can't tell the exact model, but I think it's somewhere in the $5-10 K range. Plus, the bike is more rare than the car that's carrying it.

I could be wrong[probable], but I think I read somewhere that Specialized builds carbon fiber bikes[light/extermely expensive]. Although it's probably not as expensive as the car, it's probably more difficult to repair or replace

While I haven't put it on the Fiero yet, I admit I bought a hitch for the car and a bike rack for it. I just wanted to combine my summer activities. Why have to take the winter car to go bike riding in the summer when I can put a rack on the Fiero and take the summer car to do summer activities?

Wouldn't mind having the bike. The rack he can keep though, I like mine better.

Yep several Fiero's with bike racks. Nigel's 86GT had a special bike rack and he loved it, drove his Fiero up to the Sea Wall in Stanly Park (Vancouver British Columbia) and would bike the entire Sea Wall. Its about a 30 min drive from here. If you have a Fiero and other interests, you can find good uses for Trailer Hitches. I tow a trailer behind my 88GT and my hitch also doubles as a bike rack receiver if I want to put bikes on the car.

To be honest I'd rather drive a sports car out to the park to go riding, then drive a minivan.

To me that is like finding a very beautiful girl then putting an ugly tattoo across her breasts. If you can afford a car and bike like that, you can afford a a more suitable vehicle to pull it with. It happens every day.

I can't afford a car like that, nor a bike like that... that's why I put my 15 year old Giant mountain bike on a bike rack on my 88GT.
