    in car bike shoes?

    i got a rack for me and my wifes bike and i hate it... i would really prefer to just put the bikes in the car nicely. does any company make like a bike shoe that can be mounted in a car somehow... has anybody made anything on there own maybe. i know i will have to take the front tire off to secure it and i am fine with that.

    Not quite that easy. We'd need to know more about what you're trying to put the bikes in. Most cars do not fit bikes upright in the back. Are you considering upright mounting? Horizontal? Need more infos!

    my fault i thought the bike show kinda explained it....i want them to mount upright and try to use the front fork to stabilized the bike... i think it is the same way they would go on a roof rack if i remember right... one car is a ford focus and they other is a ford escape. the focus is a hatchback. i have fit my klx110 in they with ease so i think the mt bike without the front tire on it should fit... if not they will fit in the escape for sure.

    If I understand you correctly, this is what your looking for

    What most people do is buy something like this and mount it to a 2*4 and put that in the back of the car.

    Been there, done that...

    You want one or two fork mounts bolted down to something (2x4, plywood, etc.) I mounted a few to some plywood which I outfitted with some grip-tape to keep it from sliding on the carpet. Here's my setup - worked out well on a biking vacation to Utah. You can just see the fork mounts and plywood on the floor. Since I have a large bike, I had to remove the seatpost to get my bike in (and this was a rented Mitsubishi Montero - fairly big).

    Make sure you make several sets of mounting holes to get the right spacing and angles.

    I'm using the Sette Hitch-It Bike Mount which work great. Should work on any fork with 9mm quick release.

    makes me wish my Jeep was 5 inches longer. I'm stuck with the flopping around inside.

    Dremer03, have you tried putting the bike in at an angle to gain more room?

    I can get bikes in no problem. The simple fact is that with my seats down my bike is to long with the front tire off to sit perfectly straight. When I put 3 bikes and 3 people it just doesnt work. I can check at some point but I dont think the mount would work in my jeep. If it does then I would probably get some.

    are you using a hitch rack? its by far (many times over) the best solution for bike transportation if your car will accept a hitch!

    +1 ... get a hitch rack and pile your gear in the back of the vehicle
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me
