Wondering if anyone knows whether a trunk bike rack is compatible with 2022 Civic Hatchback's composite liftgate?

Considering a Saris Bones 3 or Yakima Halfback 3, but neither of their websites or Thule show any Trunk Racks compatible (which could be due to the newness of the car).

Thule and Yakima have both advised that they will have roof rack options available in the new year. Would imagine the same is true for the trunk rack options.

Yes I read the earlier thread about the Hitch or Roof Racks Help. However, I already have the 2 trunk bike racks I mentioned and use them with my 10th Gen 2016 Civic EX-T Coupe (as I did with my prior car). As I was only considering an 11th Gen Civic Hatchback I was wondering if the structural integrity of the composite liftgate (which sounds like it was used as a weight savings measure) would be sufficient to hold a trunk rack's top and bottom hooks with the weight of a couple of road bikes.

Welcome to the forum @Imagination04
Like what @Snoopy said, those brands should eventually have a truck rack. If they don't come out with one soon enough, would you go with a universal rack?
