Ive been looking to replace my trusty 147..with another 147..but then I had an epiphany: The GT has a hatchback style boot and not a saloon style boot. So, although I wouldnt mind another 147, I wouldnt mind something a little bit different, my question is: will my bike (and !eeek! occasionally 2 bikeS) fit in the back ?
In the 147 back seats down, front wheels off both mountain bikes, one bike backwheel towards the engine, a dustsheet over the top and then another bike backwheel towards the boot. Easily goes in.
Its not like I do this every weekend (if i did I wouldnt even entertain this even with the 147; im not pretending its a picnic and that the neighbours arent
at me). Ive checked the specs and had a look at some pictures, I THINK it will take 2 bikes, and Im almost 100% it will take one.
So, anyone done this? As I say Im not expecting it to be easy, but like i say its not like I do this every weekend.
From other bits Ive read there isnt a roof rack or bike rack readily available so I wouldnt have a plan B if I took the plunge with the GT. I can picture the missus' face now......
