    Got the bike. Now I need a bike rack.

    When I picked up my new Salsa TJ a few days ago, Jason noticed that I had a Saris Bones bike rack on my VW GTI and shared that he didn't think it was suited for the car. I'd had it for a few years and I guess never checked when I got the VW. Turns out he was right. I recognize that roof and...
