    Taking road trip- bike protection?

    I'm driving 300+ miles in a few weeks and desire some sort of bike protection to ensure my bike doesn't take brunt of bug kills. What do you recommend? Also, I'm running thule roof rack- most bikes travel font wheel first- am I better off mounting rear wheel forward?

    there have been a couple threads on this and I don't think anyone posted anything up...seems like a good market opportunity for some sewing company.
    whatever...

    Blue painter's tape on the handlebar and fork legs. Easy peel off once you reach your destination.

    I have used stretchy "bike bras" purchased online from Performance (search category "Transport"). They protected reasonably well; got icky/gross after long, buggy trips. I am road tripping now with a beautiful new hitch rack for the bikes- no bugs!
