- 4 blokes & 4 bikes in a Mondeo hatch. Possible?
Three blokes and three bikes is the max I reckon, two on the rack, one in the boot – with the 2/3 seat portion down.
Possible you could get three on the outside and one in the boot if dismantled and if you didn't have much luggage. Think you're looking at two cars really though.Posted 8 years agoDougMember
3 Bikes on a towball rack and one in the boot with it's wheels bungied to the bikes outside with a bit of padding to stop them rubbing.
3/4 on the roof and one in the boot using the same wheel trick.
2/3 on the roof and 1/2 on a normal boot rack.
If your going a long way take the forks and mech off the one in the boot to get it to fit across rather than folding a seat.Posted 8 years agoI_AcheMember
3 bikes and 3 blokes with way too much kit (including food and 3 camping stoves) in a Focus hatch so I would at least give it a go. Oh and full face helmets with a bit of armour and changes of clothes.
Mondeos are a fair bit wider than foci so depending on the bikes you could possibly get them all standing or lying in the boot. The wheels could fit on top and on the back seat if you kept the kit levels to a minimum. Obviously the kit would go on laps and in gaps around the bikes.Posted 8 years agojoolsburgerMember
It's dead easy if you have a sealed headset just take the forks/wheels and seatpost off. Frames on boot floor, wheels standing on frames, everything else where you can fit it. Depends where you are off to but putting it all back together will a few minutes and you can tank along the motorways no worries.Posted 8 years agosmegMember
Did a Les Arcs road trip in a mondeo this year, 3 of us & 3 bikes in a Mondeo hatch. Pedals off, wheels off & bars turned & the bikes took up surprisingly very little room, the wheels were the biggest pain. Also had a roof box for luggage.
If you've got a roofbox to put wheels & luggage in then reckon you'd do 4 + 4, wouldn't do it for a long journey though.Posted 8 years agospooky_b329Member
I've not found the unsplit bench seat to be a problem, the seat back will fold almost flat over the seat cushion.
If you could tilt the seat cushion forwards you'd get a few inches more height, but you lose the space in the footwell which is ideal for bags/shoes/helmets.
In my old car the backrest couldn't physically fold forwards over the seat bench, but with the bench folded forwards the boot was too short. So I ended up unbolting it and chucking it in the loft 🙂Posted 8 years agojamesMember
With a boot lid/tow ball mounted rack I reckon It ought to be doable
Fold one rear seat down and try to get two frames alongside (with wheels/seatposts removed). I've done it in a laguna hatchback
Then Two (complete bikes) on the back perhaps with 2 wheels from one of the inside bikes
Luggage plus 2 wheels in the remaining boots space
Else 3 complete bikes on a rack and one frame/fork on the one folded down seat?Posted 8 years ago
