    No, no, no....you're still doing it wrong, the front wheels stays ON the bike.
    One thing I love about my Element is that the wheel can stay on. Wife wants to trade it in for a Passport. We only have 4 people in our family. You think she's hinting at something?

    Let's keep this thread alive guys, If you have a Honda vehicle and use it to haul your bikes it doesn't matter if you have a rack or tuck it inside then post your car and bike here. Acura's can post also as they were built by Honda too.

    Borrowed my sister's Element for a BC road trip 2 years ago....absolutely perfect bike hauling vehicle. As you see, it's pretty good at hauling other important stuff too.

    I get to borrow it again in August for a PNW biking roadtrip. Can't friggin wait.

    First Honda...98 Civic DX with various upgrades as things broke. 191k on the clock when it went.

    Second Honda (current)...99 Prelude SH, mostly stock. Only 110k on this one :-)

    You can fold the rear passenger seat and fit one bike but for two bikes I don't think it will fit.
    If you're planning on carrying two or more bikes just get either a roof rack or a hitch carrier, whichever you prefer.

    I used to fit my mountain bike in the back of my Honda CRX Si. Loved being able to drive the canyon roads and go ride up the mountain. Might have to post up some pics later...

    I have a 2002 Honda civic si. It's the bastard child of the civic si line. It's heavy which is the number 1 violation of the si philosophy. On the plus it has 140k on the stock clutch and fits 3 bikes inside the hatch. As much as I love it I see a mustang cobra or a Subaru wrx in the very near future.

    Wow that's a big change!
    I went from my CRX to a CR-V, mostly because my wife and I just had twin boys and needed something bigger. On the plus side, with a roof rack on top, I'm able to take the bikes when we go visit the in-laws. Maybe when the boys are older, I'll see into getting another manual 2 door Civic or Prelude...

    I have a 1999 Accord Coupe, four cylinder, with a Thule T2 rack. I bet at least two of my bikes are worth more than my car.

    I always laugh when I see a Jeep or another SUV commercial showing their vehicle parked at the trailhead while the owner rides up on his mountain bike.

    In order to get to that remote trailhead in the middle of the mountains, you need to drive hundreds of miles on paved roads and highways, and I much rather get 30+mpg, a comfortable ride, and good handling; than some automobile ad man's concept of freedom.

    When I do get to that trailhead, I'm not there to go four-wheeling. I'll park my car, unload my bike, take out my tent and gear, and I won't be stepping back into my car until it is time to go home.

    1999 Honda CRV 4wd 5sp manual. I consistently average 30.5 mpg here in NH, I can fit two bikes in the cargo area standing up, plus cases and cases of beer.

    I love it! I've owned a Hyundai Elantra, Golf GTI, Mazda RX8, Two Mazda RX7's, a subaru impreza 2.5RS, and a 1993 Accord Wagon.

    This is by far the best vehicle I have owned, outside of the RX8, but that's for a different purpose!

    Here's mine with my Canfield nimble9 on top. It is a 1990 civic hatchback with a B series swap and a decent mod list. It drives like a go kart:

    Great bike! I have the same one. Only difference is I still have the craptastic SR fork, and am running SPD's and Nevegals.

    And why doesn't Honda still make a 3door Civic (at least for US consumption)??

    The sedan is ugly, the 2 door is useless. A 3 door (or 5 door) like the Si that mrmas posted would be perfect. I don't even like Honda, but I'd still be interested in one of those.

    Today somebody rear ended my wife's 05 Honda Accord in a parking lot and then hauled a$$. She was pretty shaken up. My Brother is going to try and help me fix it this weekend but it may be wrecked. Oddly enough this will not be the first time this rack has seen the welding machine as it has been hit before.

    I just ordered a Northshore NSR-4 for my '06 Honda Pilot, I've been eyeing one up for a while and finally pulled the trigger on it.
