    Another reason for the Prius...

    Our road bikes each fit inside the hatch without taking the wheel off...one at a time of course.

    Well, your road bike may fit in the hatch, but my knees don't fit in the front.

    Yeah, folks seem to think....

    ... the Prius is a tiny car. It isn't. It's basically a tall-ish wagon... like a Matrix.

    Roof racks

    Is it a problem fitting the Prius with roof racks?

    One of our customers did a gas mileage experiment with the Prius with roof and hitch racks. Here's a link to the blog about it. Of course putting the bikes inside is the best of all options for gas mileage.

    Uhm, no it wasn't. It was a great attempt which was fully received and reciprocated... quoting directly from the episode you pulled that still from.

    Perhaps your memory is failing you.

    Gerald: You know, the emissions from a vehicle like yours causes irreparable damage to the ozone. I drive a hybrid; it's much better for the environment. [begins to drive away, with his eyes closed] Thaaanks.

    Kyle: Dad, can we go home? All you ever do since you got this car is drive around and show it off! [a quite-satisfied Gerald stops at the next intersection. Another hybrid car pulls up alongside him]

    Driver: Hey, is that a hybrid?

    Gerald: Oh yes. You've got one too, I see.

    Driver: Yeah, I like to be a part of the soluuution and not part of the probluuhm. Well, anyway, [sticks his thumb up through the passenger window] good for you!

    Gerald: [sticks up his thumb in return and begins to drive away with his eyes closed] Thaaanks.

    Are you kidding? The Prius has the lowest roof of any car I've ever driven. It's totally unlike a Matrix.

    Yes, it requires the C-clips though, kinda unsightly. I've seen many actually bolt some clean looking towers to the actual roof. Commitment, but very clean.
