Roof Rack or New (used) bike?...
This is killing me... I drive an 08 Volkswagen Rabbit, it's a 2-door hatchback, so I have no issues putting my bike in the trunk. Though it's a little bit tedious because I need to take off my front wheel, and easily guide my bike into the car without scratching anything. So I told myself that by Christmas time I would buy myself a rack system for my car (I work, so I'm not strapped for cash, but I need to keep some on reserve for school bills and such). Well after adding up all the numbers I'm looking at a minimum
of $450 for the rack... I also really want to get into road biking come this summer, and $450 will buy you a very nice used road bike...
I don't know what to do! The thing about the trunk is I doubt I'll be able to fit two bikes in at the same time (ie road bike + MTB bike), but if I get the rack I would be able to do that, but I would only have one bike
