Carbon Bikes safe on Buss Racks?

Hey there,
I live in Vancouver, and I'll be riding to a ferry terminal, where one part of the ride is through a tunnel only accessible to cars and busses.
I'll be riding my Norco Valence Carbon.
My question is, does anyone put their carbon bike on the bus? I'm a bit afraid. The rack holds it in via the front tire, I'm just worried about it knocking around. Am I being paranoid?

Thanks!

Not a problem. I have a couple of S-Works carbon bikes (Tarmac and Tricross) and put them on the bus racks frequently. It's a solid rack and shouldn't cause any problems for any type of bike.
