See here. And she got a Cannondale too... sweet. They were easily the first to do the most with aluminum.

If you guys are looking for a rack, the Saris Bones 2 is flipping amazing. You can mount that thing on any car, van or SUV. It's so ridiculously sturdy and solid and elegantly simple. My local shop recently had them on sale for $99. When you go where bikers park, I can guarantee that nine out of ten of the racks will be this one (or the 3-bike model).

Thanks for the encouragement. The bike shop didn't have a rack that fit the Grand Am. Luckily we don't need one now to enjoy them. But thanks for the recommendation; picking a brand is probably the hardest part.

All the Saris models "don't work with the spoiler option." Her spoiler isn't that big so surley they will fit. We may have to try one at the store.

Huh? The Bones racks *do* work with spoilers. I've had mine on a car with a spoiler, no problems.

Every rack for an '04 Grand Am has "Does not fit with spoiler option." The options for my car do not have the warning listed. I must conclude that Saris racks will not fit properly on Beth's car.

Well that's odd. I wonder why that is. Must be the routing of the straps.
