    On month 3 of a VW Sportwagen TSi 4MOTION starting out with 000,52 miles or so.

    Liking the room and utility and have the Yakima 4-timer set up as 2 only for now. It's a swift-feeling turbo with better than advertised mpg. I went this versus a bigger wagon like Volvo or Audi, and found the normal 'hatch' cars too cramped. Perfect 'tweener for my needs and decided last minute to go awd. So glad I thought of VW. Mine isn't the highline features so I have a few niceties as Nav, heated seats/mirrors/washer nozzles, DSG trans is a lot of fun, sport mode and paddle shifters. It's lineage at Car and Driver as a 10 Best for a dozen years has some driving-enthusiast flavor. Leather 'type' seating and pano roof missing,, no problem'o. (Pano leaks abound apparently).

    Damn that thing is clean! And it looks like the Midwest, what sorcery is this?

    My '18 Stache rides on an original Hollywood tray rack on my Honda HRV when I need passengers, or inside when it's winter. Gotta love a bike that's inches wider than the car it's on..

    2008 Subaru Impreza Hatchback. I've put my road bike in the back with the rear seats folded down, and I can carry two bikes on the roof. the car has great traction, good handling, and is quite comfortable.

    Overall, it is a great first car, especially for a mountain biker.

    The site won't let me upload a picture right now, but I will keep trying to.

    sweet! I sort of wish I had got the FJ Cruiser when I had the chance....I went with a RAV4 b/c it was more in my budget at the time and I felt like the FJ would be more than I wanted to drive around day to day...but, I think the FJ would be cool for the places we go in the summer now for biking/camping

    now THAT is a real Grand Cherokee...the new ones are nothing compared to what they came from...around here in the 90's, you probably saw more of these at the trail heads than any other kind of car...

    The FJ is a great adventure truck and has loads of character. As a DD not so much. Big blind spots, sucks gas, handling is what you'd expect. It does ride a LITTLE better than a wrangler, but you'll never be fooled into thinking it's a unibody lux SUV. But again, great for getting out there.

    yeah, the last thing I want is a luxury anything...I would expect, and honestly prefer, a rougher ride. More like an old Jeep. My RAV rides sort of like that. It is the Sport model. People get in it with me and are surprised that it is not silky smooth. Now that you mention it, I can see the issue with blind spots, and the gas guzzling thing as well.

    Would really like to have an old one...like a 60's era one...speaking of gas guzzling

    With trails close to home, I rarely have to haul my bike with a vehicle. If I do need to take a bike, I will often take it on the back of my car (posted earlier in the thread).
    However, when camping where 4WD is necessary or when going on a long road trip where the extra security of interior storage is required, we'll take my wife's 2003 Ford Explorer. With the front wheels off and saddles dropped, I can fit 3 bikes upright in the back and still have 3 usable seats or room to sleep 1 person along with the bikes. It works well for getting several bikes and riders to one spot, too. I can fit up to 6 bikes across the roof and another 4 on the back.
    It has 225000 miles and is still running strong. We used it a couple of weeks ago to shuttle Porcupine Rim.

    Nice and sporty looker , sweet wheels too.

    Later day plan for me is the first carpool in the Sportwagen with the 4-Timer rack, three bikes loaded for camping as we are still doing fitness riding, and gear/pack testing, etc... recipe calls for a 29er loaded, a pugs loaded and my plus wheeler.
    My car will either do wheelies or break in half. We will park behind Broadmoor, explore fire roads and find some trails back to the car, then hot tub epilog.

    Not sure if you mean the bike or the car either way, I'll take it.

    Here she is with the rack. 4 days from car purchase to rack install. I'll have to do better next time.

    Car wheels look nice. I like the gunmetal color and the style of that wheel and it really is set off by the car color IMO.

    Road Trip in a Cayman with Two Fat Bikes ( Thank you Sea Sucker )

    Road Trip in a Cayman with Two Fat Bikes ( Thank you Sea Sucker )

    So a buddy and I are going on a road trip and we are going to be taking my mid-life I beat cancer for the 2nd time car. Thank you to my wife for not killing me when I bought the car and didn't tell her.

    Currently I can get one fat tire in the back of the car and since I own the Sea Sucker it gave me a crazy idea. We built this just to see if it would work and it looks like it does and there is still a few parts that need to be built before I call this complete.

    The plan would be to make a bracket that came up the single leg that had a foot rest for the wheel and a velcro strap to stabilze the wheel. Most likely will only be made to transport one wheel on the back glass.

    Next up is to get 9/16 rod thread it on the bottom and the smooth the top similar to my wheel studs.

    Great car! I got my wife an Alltrack with DSG and it's a hoot to blast around in, especially in the snow. I'm a staunch stick shift driver but am very impressed with the DSG. Super fast shifts makes it a blast around back roads.

    I have a '15 GTI that I love but am tempted to be more practical and trade it in for a 4motion 6 speed Golf Wagon. German, turbo, AWD, 6 speed wagon. Basically the perfect practical car.

    Yeah, the Alltrack is a hot item now. Not sure I can explain it but something about the plain-Jane look of the 17 pre Alltrack clicked with me and yet the AT style is very smart - upscale looking. I hope your wife likes/appreciates it's too.

    Handling and darting around in these is it's own brand of driving. Even my wife noted (as passengered this morning to breakfast) "this really has a nice ride". I think she was more commenting on my ease of navigating traffic and the car size being very effective-efficient. Her DD is a 4300# leather-bound CUV.

    This is one of my current haulers. Or occasionally the '17 Tundra, but the Mini is more fun on the weekend!
    I've been tossing around the idea of a mid- '70's Datsun 620 p/u if I can ever find one. Maybe some day.

    new hauler

    Picked up a 2019 Ford Edge last month and got out on the first ride of the year on 1/1/2019, and also experienced my first time hauling my bike with this vehicle.

    I just traded my GLE AMG 63s for a GLC AMG 63s. I used a 1up on the GLE but no hitch for the GLC and I don't want to add one so trying out the Seasuckers.

    Not my normal bike hauler, but I did just move my 2019 s works stumpy up to our mtn house in Reno in this....2015 Audi RS7. Beast of a car, and with the front wheel off, it can take a bike and other stuff for a weekend of riding.

    Depends which car I'm driving at the time.
    Bit easier with the 340i and can take 3 bikes.
    M2 Comp is much more fun on the drive to the trails.

    I sold my 2008 Honda Element, traded in my 2010 Ram 2500, plus $3000 = a 2019 Tacoma plus more room in my garage.

    a Tacoma is definitely in my future...will probably buy used, but I still love these trucks. I have 3 friends who own them so I am convinced...I just got a RAV 4 though - well, 5 years ago - so I have to convince my self that a new vehicle is justified since I usually get 10-15 years out of 1 car

    Yeah, I'll be keeping this truck for awhile. I'll be retiring in a couple years, so I'm getting ready to have more time for adventures, and this is the perfect vehicle for those. My wife has a 2011 Rav4, can't go wrong with those.

    My current car. Not to insinuate that I change up things often, I hold on to things forever. Soon there will be a 2006(?) Jeep Grand Cherokee at the great price of $0. It's for my son who doesn't have his license yet and legally it'll probably be in my name, so....

    I though you were gonna say "Hey! wash your bike while it's on the rack" cuz that works well with a 1-Up. Free-spinning drivetrain access is good too.

    Recent 1-up cult member - still on the kool-ade. The ratchet system is kinda ratchet tho.

    Didn't like having the bikes on the front so moved 2 bikes to the ski. Looking into a double hitch setup next so a bike rack can mount on the back of the truck along with the trailer.

    What do your rides ride?

    2012 Pathfinder. Big, rough ride, and crappy MPG

    But itís paid for, reliable, has space for the family and gear, and I donít worry about dings and scratches!

    Iím getting closer and closer to the ďbike worth more than my carĒ cliche!



    And it tows!

    Got out for a ride today (finally), beautiful fall day, trails were perfect, thought I'd snap a post ride pic.

    2019 Kona Honzo ST (surprising clean )
    2017 Kia Sportage LX AWD

    I love both of these rides.

    2016 Accord Sport. I picked up this Saris Bones 2 trunk rack from some lady on FB for $20. She was just trying to get rid of it since she didnít have a bike.

    that is exactly the Tacoma I am looking for....access cab TRD...is that the Off Road TRD model? Did you have to special order it? I dont' want the extra full cab, and want the bigger bed, but also want the TRD off road package

    sweet...I got my RAV4 used, and fell in live with Toyota's. Looking to go the pick up truck route for camping/adventuring purposes and really want the Tacoma...hard to find the access cab TRD Off Road used around here though. All I find are the full cab ones, and the beds on those are not big enough for what I want

    My girl and I dig loading it up with bikes and boards and hitting trails and a lake nearby. Get sweaty from the ride, hit the lake and float around with beers in tow!

    Took it to Key West from Raleigh. No prob.

    It also easily handles moderate 4x4 trails. Great offroad trailhead accessibility.

    It's been a great rig. Very versatile.

    I would say mostly nothing, and sometimes trains. I happen to live in the central area of Vienna.
    That means couple of things:
    -Taxes on cars, parking, and gas are all very expensive.
    -Public transport is very good, and many people do not need or own a car.
    -Trails are situated just outside of the urban city area, and getting there with a bike is actually a nice warmup.

    Just picked this up.

    08 Audi A3. Six speed manual. Needs a bit of cleaning up...but good to go. Motor and clutch feels good. First thing is to install the hitch. Finding a manual was harder than I though.

    After years of trucks and SUV's I bought a van in 2015, "the van to rule all vans".

    I've had a Sprinter, it was a RWD and it was nice as long as the roads were dry, but it sucked scrotum if it was icy or snowy; no chain was enough to get that thing traction.

    Then the Fiat Ducati replaced the Sprinter, coming to 'merica in 2014 as the Promaster. I waited a year and scored a "short bus", 118" low roof, FWD, beautiful in white, diesel (best mpg 28.6!!), 6sp auto/manual. This van is my daily driver and trip mobile.

    I just ticked 85k, it runs like a top, build out is always ongoing, just added a 6k btu catalytic propane heater and tank vault, folding dinette, bench seat, sunroof, full auxiliary 12v with lights, fan, and a cooler. Space for two bikes inside, swing out arms to secure when bed is up, fork mount when bed is down, and more bikes can hang outside on the hitch rack.

    Typically I keep my bike and gear with me year round so I can ride from work. I love having air, heat, power, light, at my finger tips, a convertible bed, and a nice little bench to sit at when getting changed. There is nothing better than coming back from a ride to a house on wheels. Often my wife will nap or read while I ride; she likes the cooler cuz it's got beer!

    Folks say FWD in a van is no good for hauling, not good enough for snow, yadayada. Well, let me tell ya, I've pulled 6k worth of excavator, 4 k of rock, I drove this thing all over WA State, lived in snow country, then moved to Nevada and drive all over the Sierras on snow, and it's a friggin' beast mobile! It's also been offroad a fair amount, Gooseberry Mesa no problema

    Who do you have your insurance through? My carrier informed me that a new Promaster would have to go under a commercial policy, even with the Snoek's conversion to make it a crewcab. Searching the web, seems to be a common problem because there isn't a factory passenger version.

    Kid hauling, camper hauling, bike hauling(inside), enough room for my fun sized self to camp in with the second row up, lots of space for tools when I'm volunteering with my local IMBA chapter and trail teams... Plenty of clearance for mild trails, plenty of highway passing power for traversing 285/I-70 with the 454.. Hard to beat for $4k.

    Our 2000 Land Cruiser -- awesome off-roader. Rack is an old Thule, NOT off-road rated but it does OK on desert dirt tracks if lightly loaded. Lifted by the usual 2.5 inches, ran it for years with 285/75-R16 tires, now back to 265/75s because gearing.

    Been awesome!!!

    The bed breaks down and comes out so I can get 4x8 sheets of stuff in there. Right now it is set up to haul two bikes, but three would fit (though it would make getting to the shelves far more awkward).

    State Farm. Not commercial because itís used for personal transportation.

    Same with any vehicle, trucks, etc ... unless itís a commercial use, it ainít commercial.

    Not the most reliable...

    Terrible off-road.

    Awesome gas mileage though.

    This would be perfect for me and my wife (empty nesters, don't travel too frequently and could work with our existing vehicles). Is this a self-done custom trailer, or did you have a company do it? Would love some more details about your setup. Looks awesome!

    I added some cross bars to the back of my pickup. They're made from unistrut or similar and are connected via L-brackets to the factory bed rails. On these I have 3 1-up "car top" racks. This allows me to carry 3 bikes on top of the bed and throw our gear under. Every once in a while we have 2 more people and in that case I have a hitch rack. I really like the 1-up racks, I have tried multiple brands and these are the best.

    I used to hold the bikes in the bed, standing up (I have one in-bed rack plus I would just strap the other two to the bed sides), but when we got more modern, FS bikes, they would no longer fit with the tailgate closed. This is the extended (not crew) cab tundra with the 6.5' bed.

    Nice. I have 2011 E150 with a similar set up. I'm slowly making it more camp worthy but used it every wknd this season. One thing I'm growing to appreciate going back to a full size Ford is parts availability, cost, and how easy they are to work on.

    It's a Falcon 23TH, pretty standard toy hauler set up. Toy haulers are used to carry quads or side-by-sides to your camping destination, then serve as a regular RV once unloaded. Relatively common, nothing custom.

    Here's the one that bikeCOLORADO has:

    I agree though, I'd love a toy hauler for bike trips- I'd much rather have the flexibility of the open space inside!

    Tundra TRD 4x4. Drives like a truck, noisy cabin, outdated V8, terrible mileage, too wide for some off-road trails. But...I love this truck! Perfect for my lifestyle.

    My custom ride

    I really wanted a dedicated vehicle to haul my mountain bikes in. It didn't need that much towing capacity since it was only going to haul mountain bikes. And I wanted to get better mileage as I am always driving around to new places to explore. I came up with a Nissan NV200. Being a Californian, I had to customize it. Paint, carpet, interior paneling, custom electronics (radar detector, 16 speakers, AV receiver, etc.). Placed a carbon fiber dashboard (like the bikes!), and the best part was the license plate I was able to secure from the DMV! I am very happy the way it turned out and for what it is intended, its perfect.What do  your rides ride?-van1.jpgWhat do  your rides ride?-van2.jpgWhat do  your rides ride?-van3.jpgWhat do  your rides ride?-van4.jpgWhat do  your rides ride?-van5.jpgWhat do  your rides ride?-van6.jpg

    painted and sprayed it myself.
    Built the bike stand - comes out when needed
    full aluminum 6x10, weighs under 1000lbs, carry 2000lbs, 4 bikes weigh 125lbs
    my trucks fuel mileage went up 50%, but doesnt matter if i bring 6 bikes, 2 inflatable paddle boards, two tents and camping gear for 8 teenagers!
    makes for a great Sunday picnic/ride with the kids.

    future plans are to add a platform above the bikes for use as a shelf/bed.

    that might be a thing to look into for me....especially building a second story for bedding etc. This would be a decent option to the van thing if you didn't want to drive a van for an every day car

    better get a hitch lock though!
