Yeah I was looking into a roof mount for bikes (ended up going with seasucker; 100% happy btw) but the thin roof metal made me wary. If you can't fit the wheels into the trunk/rear seat area because other stuff is occupying that space (or don't want your car to smell like rubber), you could always look into a hitch and pull a small tire trailer.

I transport my surfboards by simply reclining the front seat - I use a board sock so as not to get wax or sand on my seat.

I race cyclocross and can fit my 58cm bike with room for a spare wheelset too.

If I didn't have the mazda3 hatchback I would definitely get racks.

Do you race the so-cal cross series?
Do you remove both wheels? I ride a 56 and it is a very tight fit. How do you get it in? front of bike first or?

Only a few So-Cal series, so a lot of trips up north for me from San Diego. That said, for fun, I enter XC mountain "rides" on my SSCX.

I have to load my bike through the front, with the passenger seat completely forward. I have to remove the seatpost and insert it tail end first.

This looks like an easy install.

Yup if you run the towers out to the ends and play with the adjustments.

On my wrx I have a 2" hitch that I use to haul trailers. I don't know if you twin owners have tried hauling with a trailer yet. I'm interested in getting a hitch for the twin when the time comes.

They talk about the hitch about 1:40 mins in, seems like a relativley simple install. I've thought about doing the same but have gone with transporting my track wheels/tires in the car instead.

If I had the money for some of those cars, I'd be hauling them with a Ram

Snowboard rack



Here's my winter set up I brought up to the snow this past weekend.
Thanks for the info from OP. Drove like a charm no fuss at all.
