The adventures we have in these cars are just awesome. The "duathalon" concept is just another fantastic excuse to hit the road!

It's a 58 cm, so it's a big bike... I remove the fork to get everything real compact, but that's not totally necessary. I like to find covered parking when I head for the mountains, in case I have to set up/dismantle in the rain.





After the ride, I love driving some of the sections I just rode!

911Jetta - You have that duathalon worked out well! I did not think a bike would fit in the back seat but I will have to try that out after seeing you do it.

I have used the SeaSucker on the GT3 (but would not want to do any spirited driving) and can fit a bike (wheels/saddle removed) in the passenger seat of a R8 as the foot well is very deep.

Give it a try jj99c2! I wanted to share the pics because it's possible, and great way to combine my passions (bikes, cars and photography). That said, if I had your bike, I'd definitely wouldn't mind using a roof rack so everyone can see that beast. My bike is old and ugly, it deserves to be tucked away. I do love roof racks on a 911 though...

My mountain bikes are too big to fit inside.



(sorry for all the random pics, done)

Nice pic of the TREK on the roof. How do you like it jj99c2? I see nobody ever mentions anything about TREK'S, are they not that popular or worth the cost? I have one and love it.

Mooty, any previous experience with them?

process? Bring every color chip and pick the coolest ones and 100s of txt messages later the pallet is chosen.

Bronson - I really like the Trek Madone 9. It has some aero properties but its still a very comfortable bike as it has a system that decouples the seat post from the frame. The downside is it makes it a little heavier - mine is 7.4kg set up with enve 3.4 clinchers/DA9150 di2. The bike is a little complicated as all the cables/wires are fully integrated through handlebar/stem/frame. I have not had any problems with it though.

I agree Trek is not as popular - most of my friends are on Specialized.

Mooty - I have not tried the SeaSucker with a film -- my xpel stops on the hood so the roof is painted.

5.95k with your tarmac? Are those tubs or clincher wheels? That is amazingly light....I have been thinking about building up an Emonda in a lightweight config as the new frame is 640g...but I did not see a way to get it below 6kg with clinchers.
