storing bikes in a car sedan?

Is the weight of the frame and the backwheel heavier than the fork,handlebar and front wheels? if u can only fit the back half in your open boot?

You could always take both wheels off.

I would bet the rear end's heavier - you have all that gearing there too.

If your car is that small, perhaps you should consider a folding bike?

Otherwise, the back half of the bike will be heavier due to the gears.
