    you might as well just key your car while you're at it.

    Put it in the back. Remove the wheels and seat if you need to.

    You would seriously damage your roof even if you put towels under the bike.

    By taking wheels off, I put my Heckler in the back seat of a Ford Focus. Just use towels or tarp to keep oil/dirt from soiling the upholstery. Otherwise, just buy a $60 trunk mount that can hold 2-3 bikes.

    Yup... that's how my bike travels inside my VW Golf MKII... Actually, perfect shuttle for two riders, two bikes and gear.


    My bike in the back seat, the other resting on the space between front and back seats. Wheels in the trunk and gear all over the place...

    Use some blankets to cover the seats or your wife will piss at you.

    I actually like it, does not affect fuel economy, you'll never total your bike when entering a garage and as long as you keep the car closed, they're safe from thieves.... oh, and you'll not get your rack robbed either!

    cut some holes in your car for the pedals and handlebars.

    convenience cost money..............
    but I have seen some pretty cheap racks.
    I would strongly advise against Macguyver'ing outside the vehicle.
    PITA, and prone to catastrophic consequences IF something goes terribly wrong.

    Buy some training wheels and a rope. Tow it home.
