That would be a simpler, more elegant solution, but it may have a problem. The distance fron the top of the board to the roof of my car at the rear is about 7" - at that depth, the spokes of the wheel are wider than the tire and would rest against the wood. Would that be likely to damage the spokes? In any case, I think I'd want something to tie the rear down so it doesn't pop out - some kind of latch across the slit would do it, I think. It's something someone should take a crack at to see how it works - maybe collectively we can come up with a universally perfectimoneous design!
