Whale tails and bike carriers

My 156 has got a great big spoiler on the back however I want to get back into mountain biking and I've got a feeling that the two don't mix too well.

I'll need to get two bikes on the back - anybody know if this is possible? Any suggestions to bike racks that work would be great!

Re: Whale tails and bike carriers

I stock Thule racks in my bike shop and they don't have anything that fits the back of a 156. (Thule are very specific and have tested all cars they say yes to). I went for roof bars and carriers which are easy to use and very solid but reduce mpg a fair bit.

The best option is a towbar, but they don't look great and can de value the car so it's a tricky decision.
