Bimmer E92 – has anyone managed to stuff two bikes in one?!
should go in, wheels and pedals off and seat post out may have to loosen the the bars and slide them along a touch. Careful arranging the wheels so the cassette is not touching any discs.
as with njee an old blanket to go between the frames and a large plastic ground sheet underneath.Posted 5 years ago
Have you actually tried it? You clearly want your bike in the car, so asking for advice is totally pointless until you go and take 30 seconds with a clean bike.
I’d be stunned if you can’t. If you’re careful and buy boot liner/tarp/sleeping bag there’s no reason to damage your car.
Like I say, I know my BIL doesn’t have any issues getting a large road bike in, so I can’t see it being a massive issue. You can get 2 people/bikes/6 wheels and all their gear for a weekend’s racing into an Audi TT.Posted 5 years ago
Well it’s more that I don’t actually own two MTB’s currently, in order to test it.
I’m sure I can put one in but need to know if I can fit two in before I suggest driving myself and a mate on a weekend’s riding trip thingy…
He has a far more sensible car for the job but (as I’ve only just got it) I’d quite like to take my car on a bit of a trip.

Hmm, herein lies a problem… :-/Posted 5 years ago
+1 for the towbar & rack solution. So easy to fit & remove. We used this setup for a trip down to Verbier & back this July and it was faultless.
We’ve got a Westfalia bar with a detachable hitch & a Thule 908 rack. Found that the straps on the rack are pretty hard & could easily scratch the rims, easily cured with an inner tube & some zip ties 🙂Posted 5 years ago
So excuse my ignorance, how do these retractable towbars work then? I assume something is still permanently bolted to the chassis (do cars still have chassis’s’s’s?) ??
EDIT: £450 seems like a lot of money for a towbar that’ll only get used for a bike carrier, and then there’s the cost of the bike rack itself …Posted 5 years ago
