On the bus rack or underneath in the cargo bay?
New to the fold here! I recently bought a Bike Friday and am about to start commuting with it when the weather permits. This being November in Denver, that could be hit or miss. Anyway, RTD buses here all have bike racks on the front. My bus is a Greyhound-style, with a cargo area underneath, too. I have never seen a folder on one of the bus racks. You squeeze a handle, the rack comes down, you put both tires in a narrow slot and bring a padded arm up and over the front tire to secure it. It looks too big to me for a 20" tire, but I don't know. They also let you stow the bike below, but it's a corrugated metal box and I can just see my shiny new BF sliding and banging around under there. Has anybody tried those particular bike racks? Thanks!
