    Vehicle v. bike fit question...

    Okay, who has a vehicle, other that a minivan or crew cab truck, that can fit a 29r (mine is a medium pivot429) in the back with the 2nd row seats UP, not folded flat. Other than something like a Suburban or Tahoa, which I'm really not interested in, I'm not aware of any. In the alternative, what about a medium sized (54-56cm) road bike behind the second row seats? All of this is with BOTH wheels on.

    My current ride is a Saab wagon and the roadie fits behind second row with only the front wheel off. It's getting long in the tooth and needs to be replaced soon.

    Thanks in advance!!!!!!

    You sure about that??? It only has 25 cu.ft of space behind the 2nd seats, and that's a lot less than the 37 behind the 2nd seat of my Saab and I need to remove the front wheel.

    Good suggestion if you are not in a hurry to be somewhere fast. The FTC is functional, has standing room, and there are conversions available.
    Some pain is physical and some is mental, but one that's both is dental.

    Looks pretty slick, but I need it for everyday driving as well. I'm looking hard at the Mazda CX-9, Honda Pilot and the Acura MDX. I just haven't had an opportunity to see if the bike fits in the back of any of those vehicles.

    Sorry, I didn't test fit a bike when doing a review of the CX-9

    Photos were shot when doing road tests for CarReview.com.

    If they offered it in the US with a manual transmission it would be on my very short list of potential replacements for my RT4WD Honda Civic wagon. Diesel would put it very close to the top (unless Subaru brings their diesel over as well).

    The amount of room inside for such a small vehicle is impressive.
