    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?

    I'm going to guess, yes. unless front wheels wasn't a typo.

    You could always take both wheels off.
    As with mud, life, too, slides by.

    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.
