- Golf Mk VI TDi 2 bikes inside?
Can anyone the above care tell me if it is possible to get two bikes inside the car, bike upright. Either across the back seats or by putting the seats down flat? Bikes are a Cotic BFe (small) with 140 fork and Trek Remedy with Talas fork.
I know the real answer is to get a towball mounted rack but I haven’t got time before going on a Lakes/Scottish road trip at the weekend.Posted 5 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Why bother putting them upright?, go to a carpet warehouse or similar place and buy off cuts or samples and lay it on top of the lower bike, i can fit 3 bikes/6 wheels in the back of my Mk2 golf this way but i have removed the rear seats as i don’t carry passengers, i don’t see why you couldn’t do the same with two bikes if you lay your seats down flat.Posted 5 years ago
The problem with laying flat is where do I put all the other kit, for two, that will include a couple of rucksacks and North Face duffle with cycling and climbing kit. I thought upright bikes would be more efficient use of space.
Problem is I don’t have the car to experiment with. Pick it up Friday evening and once done so the dye is cast as it were.Posted 5 years agoFlapjackSubscriber
I have had bikes in the back of every conceivable model of Volkswagen over the last 15 years (I work for a VW dealer) and am pretty sure that I have only ever successfully been able to get bikes upright (with wheels off) in the back of the current Sharan and probably Touran, maybe the Tiguan with the forks compressed. Incidentally, if they won’t go in a MkV they won’t go in a MkVI as they are principally the same car albeit with a facelift – and they sure as hell won’t go in the new MkVII which has a much lower roof line.Posted 5 years ago
Thanks all, looks like lay flat is the only option with some karimats between the frame and imagination for the other kit.
I did a week in Wales with 2 bikes and full camping kit in a Ford Ka with bikes flat so should be a p*ss easy in a Golf. I’ve been spoilt over recent years with a Mondeo Estate where these sorts of issues don’t arise.Posted 5 years ago
