carrying a bicycle

I'm considering an '08 Clubman that has a sunroof, so it has not roof racks. How can I carry a couple of bicycles? Can/Should I get a trailer hitch mounted bicycle carrier?

Never mind. I think I found what I'm looking for. I found a shop near enough to me (Mini of Dallas) that'll install a roof rack base support system. it looks like a sunroof would clear it. From there, I can install just about any bike carrier I choose.

Silver Black Tuhle Mini Roof Bars / Fork Mount Bike Rack

I have a roof rack system made by Tuhle for Mini Clubman that works well with sun roof. Has fork mount bike rack as well. Great shape - used only one season this year and sold car. Anyone interested I can send picture. 275.00
