My wife retired yesterday so we picked up our new bike carrier on Thursday night. It's going to be used for our biking across Florida and U.S. trips. We got the idea from another couple that bought one (red, without the rear seats) for the same purpose and they really have theirs set up nice. I'm going to follow what he did on his, as much as I can, in order to get this one ready for the road trips. I have to wait until the arm and shoulder are fully recovered before I can start the modifications.
Since this is going to be our primary vehicle (selling her car and my truck), the wife insisted on having the folding rear seats, which lessens the amount of space I have for the bikes. I now have to come up with some creative way of getting her recumbent trike in there along with my road bike. Lots of modifications to do on the rear panels and ceiling that will hold the cycling gear (shoes, helmets, tools etc.). Will post photos of the finished product when the project is done.
