Back when I had a beater of a car, the good 'ol cheap trunk rack did the trick. But the bike whacked up against the back bumper, putting a few dents, the clasps scratched etc.
..but last fall I bought a new car, a 2012 Ford Fusion. Looking at the trunk space, it looks like it's potentially possible to forgo the clunky trunk rack and put the entire bike in the trunk somehow. I own a Trek 7.3FX model from a few years ago. Anyone have any experience with this? Is it possible/easy? Any tips, or should I just forgo this entire entirely?
