I use the Thule "Raceway Pro 2" rack. It fits the Bolt well and is nice and secure. Beware, however, that it (like other racks I assume) will drop your highway mileage substantially. If you can throw the bike inside, it's much more energy efficient.

I use Thule Vertex 2 and it works fine for me without any obvious reduction in mi/kWh.

My comments on it are on this thread elsewhere.

Draw-tite 1.5" hitch with the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Hitch Rack. Very stable, tip down allows rear hatch access (at 10:10).

My wife's road bike fits inside our new Bolt with the rear seats down and without removing the front wheel. I promised her that it would based on using a measuring tape prior to buying the car :shock: . What a relief! :D
