Great for self-loathing bikers, the Flex-Fix feature on European Opel Antara and Corsa cars carry two bikes but hide away when not in use.

How it works: the rear extends out from the bumper far enough for you to mount your ride, which afterwards neatly folds back up and into the body so no one's the wiser. You technically have to have two license plates in your car in order to show when the rack is out, but it's much more elegant than mounting the bikes on top of your car. Not to mention easier.

This is an excellent idea. I hate those stupid 3rd party bolt on bike racks that people insist on leaving on their SUV's when they don't have bikes on them. The extension the bikes hang off of is usually at exactly the right height to crack someone in the skull as their walking through the parking lot. Talk about a concussion looking for a place to happen.
