My husband and I are looking to buy a new car. We test drove and loved the Hyundai Genesis Coupe. It is the next best thing to cornering on a carbon fiber bike!
So far we've been breaking down our bikes and laying them flat inside his spacious Mazda 3 hatchback with the rear seats folded down. FYI: hatchbacks work really well - we can fit 2 bikes, numerous bags for bottles, shoes and helmets as well as luggage for trips to go on tours.
The Hyundai dealer claims he can put a hitch on the car but will that really hold up the bikes? This is what the car looks like: http://www.hyundaiusa.com/vehicles/2012/genesis-coupe/
Does it look like it would securely hold a bike rack on the back? If so, what kind of bike rack? It would be for 2 bikes.
A part of me likes being able to keep my bike protected from traffic, the rain and unsavory individuals. So I'm torn about putting them on a rack. This is San Francisco after all. Couldn't somebody steal them? Is there a secure bike rack from theft? Or instead is there a car with a really spacious interior or cargo space perfect for bikes?
If you have answers to any of these questions we'd greatly appreciate it!
