I may be selling my van, reluctantly, but I'm the only one in my family who drives it on occasion and Vanagons are increasingly costly to maintain so I really can't justify keeping it. However, I use it to haul my bicycle around.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a bike rack or carrier for the New Beetle? Mine is a 1999 model.

Thanks!

VW sold their own line of racks that went on the roof; from their genuine VW accessories line. Other options are the type that connect on a hitch on the back of the bumper; connecting with a removable hitch system.

I guess you have decide how many bikes you want to haul and which position you prefer. I'm thinking the rear hitch system would be more user friendly and less wind resistance.

Bosal, makes some really nice bike rack systems:
