    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.

    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.

    North Shore NSR-4, just installed about an hour ago and I haven't had a chance to test it yet. I will get to try it out Sunday though.

    My '08 Accord Sedan EX-L with my 1Up USA rack (black - to go with the black car and black bike). ‹

    I love my Accord and I love my rack!! It works nicely with the low clearance of Sedan + hitch rack. I love that I can just have the 1-bike rack (which is what I use 95% of the time) that doesn't stick out as far. But if necessary, I can add the extension for a 2nd bike.

    If you're planning on carrying two or more bikes just get either a roof rack or a hitch carrier, whichever you prefer.

    Anyway I am looking for a way to haul my 29er. Have you ever tried to flop the seats down and stuff a bike in the trunk? Not very practical but maybe in a pinch it would fit.
    I am not sure if a trunk mounted rack is best for me or something like that Yakima on your red one. Corse I'll have to ditch the sunroof deflector..no biggy.
    Do you have a sunroof? Does the rack alow you to open it in the up/tilted position?
    Thanks

    I have a 29er and had a trunk mount on the black civic up there. My car is lowered and the front wheel was roughly 8" off the ground.

    Im gonna throw a hitch mount on it and go that route.

    I dont like the idea of beating up the car or bikes so this is the best option.

    Haven't tried to put my bike inside the trunk yet, but I think it will fit as long as you take the front wheels and squeeze it in. For the roof rack, yes I have a sunroof and it's not really blocking it, I'll take a picture when I have a chance. If you decided to get a roof rack, I recommend also getting a stretch kit because our cars have shorter roof clearance specially if you have a 29er bike. Here's a Yakima link so it will help you decide what bike rack you're getting. Yakima Dealer InfoLookup

    Thanks for the info!!
    Man I was checking out that "Seasucker" thread and that product shure looks simple and sweet. I like the idea of "flying with bike and rental car rack". Or the simeple fact I'm not confined to one car.
    I plan on getting something soon but need to save a bit $$ first..so the research continues..

    Honda Fit fits XL 29er.

    Just bought a 2013 Honda Fit. I found several pictures of bikes in the Fit, but the problem is I am 6'5" and ride a XL Setta Razzo 29er. Most of the pictures were 26 inch or a smaller frame than I use.

    The seat is at the height I ride it at, I had to do a bit of maneuvering to get it in there. I can lower the seat, but there is no quick release so I don't want to do it unless I have to. With the seat at it's current height I was not able to get it to stand upright.

    I was not able to get the bike to fit with the front tire on. The passenger seat was scooted forward a little bit, but maybe with some more wiggling I could get it to fit without moving the front seats.

    I think in a pinch it would work. I still have a 96 4RUnner that I can fit the bike in without lowering the seat, or taking any of the tires off. I think I will use that for ease of use, but it is nice to know I can fit my bike in the Fit without too much work.

    I have given up on the rack. Thule helium POS. Pretty much take both wheels off and chuck it in the back.

    95 Civic ESi and 2001 Civic EX on Saris Bones 3

    Hi guys. I`m new at the forum, I`m from Buenos Aires, Argentina. My rack is a Saris Bones 3. It fitted perfectly well on my 95 Civic ESI, it fits like crap on my recently acquired 2001 Civic. The worse of all is that the tutorial on the Saris web is done with my exact car on the exact color, but it doesn`t fit that good.

    I'm not hauling bikes here but you couldn't tell because two bikes will fit inside easy.

    Here is a pic of my wife's Odyssey with the new Kuat we got last week. I'm very pleased with the rack, thanks to the posts on here, and my anxiety about scuffing the interior is much less now!
