Toyota Prius Bike hitch and rack

With the cost of gas the Toyota Prius is becoming a popular car. But the question is can you carry bikes around. Yes you can!

It is awesome! You get great gas mileage and can carry your bikes around.

We have a jetta tdi and can get 40mpg with bike inside the trunk with tire off or backseat down with tire on. But I prefer to just ride the bikes and leave the cars at home.

I love the fact that a guy named Ford is putting in a plug for Toyota.

That is kind of funny. Did not really think about that.

The Prius has been awesome and when I learned I could install a rack on the back is when I decided to buy it.

I hate putting my bikes on the roof of my car because all the bugs and keeping them clean. Buy putting the bikes on the rear of the car they stay nice and clean. I like to keep a clean bike.

Hey, could you post the link to the article you wrote for another website one more time?

Looking at your post history, some people might think you're shilling on BF for roadbikerides.com.
