Suburbans & Bicycles?

I need to figure out the best way to bring our 5 bikes on trips. I sure other Suburban owners have faced this before, what's user friendly? What are you using?

Thanks in advance.

Cary

We haul six..

We have a Safari 30 and a 3/4 ton Suburban AND four girls. So when we travel we haul six bikes, on the roof. We use a Yakima system with the 84" bars and 'raptor' series tracks. The only bummer is hauling the youngest ones "china bike" as it does not have quick disconnect wheels.

I tend to set the rack towards the rear and load the bikes standing on the rear bumper. Luckily most all of the bikes we have are very lightweight, I cannot imagine loading heavy steel bikes.

Let me check...

I may have a pic on my old 3/4 ton, let me see....

I forgot to mention that once you have got the Yakima cross bars you then have many other options for your hauling needs. I also use mine for hauling bikes/canoe, bikes and cargo basket. The cargo basket is handy for a bundle or two of firewood, and onetime a stinky generator that I spilled gas on the outside.

I will post what pics I have.
