Porsche Cayman S 981 Bike Rack – The SeaSucker Talon

Porsche Cayman S 981 Bike Rack - The SeaSucker TalonThe SeaSucker Talon makes an ideal Porsche Cayman S 981 Bike Rack. As mentioned in our previous post making a simple change like rotating the fork mount 180 degrees can reduce the bike rack footprint. This change reduces the footprint of the SeaSucker Talon by approx. 76 mm.

    What was the overall height with the bike on top? I’m slightly worried about clearance.

    1. Hi Winston,
      Unfortunately we don’t have any height measurements, the photos and feedback were provided by our customer.
      Having said this we can approach this from a different point of view.
      We do know that mounting a bike on the tailgate using a fork mounted bike rack like the SeaSucker Talon creates the lowest vertical profile.
      The only other bike rack setup that could further reduce the overall height would be a tow-ball mounted bike rack.
      That would require fitting a tow-ball to the Porsche Cayman which I would imagine is not ideal
      Therefore if we discount the tow-ball mounted bike rack the setup our customer came up a mounting location that minimised the overall height as much as possible.
      Apologies for not being able to provide actual measurements.

      Kindest Regards,

      Chris
