I use a Thule Speedway bike mount on my Patriot. It's cheap and easy to install. I have the 3 bike model and use it to transport 2 hybrid bikes (the spaces are narrow so realistically, if you're looking to carry 3 bikes, make sure they're road bikes). The only downside is that you can get scratches on your gate where the metal part of the side straps rub up against the car (easily solved by attaching foam pads). I drive 70-80 on the highway and haven't had any problems. Just don't whip around turns!
To you from failing hands we throw the torch. Be yours to hold it high.
