    Any Mazda CX-5 Owners?

    Hey all

    Time to start looking for something to replace my Fusion. I am 90% leaning towards the CX-5 but want to see what the experiences here have been with regards to bike transport.

    Can I fit a 29er or a roadie inside with seats down and front wheel off? What is the cleanest aftermarket hitch? Anything else I should be taking into consideration with a CX-5

    While I don't have a CX-5, I can tell you that I can get my 29er in the back of my Mazda3 with the front wheel off and my road bike in the back without taking either wheel off. 29er is a Large Evil Following and road bike is a 56cm Cannondale Evo. The CX-5 should have no problem if my smaller 3 can fit them. I have a hitch now but I used this setup for a number of weeks and it wasn't an issue.

    Thanks. Good to know. I plan on using a hitch rack most of the time but there are some occasions when I know the bike will be sitting outside for a while when it would be nice to have the security of the bike being inside the car.

    I have a CX-5. With front wheel off, the bike can stand up. Might have to lower the seat if you have it high.
    Or you can lay the bike on its side with both wheels on. Its roomy, but not quite as roomy as my Element.

    Thanks. My brother has an Element, so I have seen how great of a utility vehicle those can be.
