Hi i was wondering if any other spider owners are cyclists and what they do to transport their bikes?

I can fit mine in if i take the wheels off and put it behind the seats, but its a pain in the *** having the roof down when the weather is not desirable.

Has anyone come accross any bike racks etc to suit?

I haven't done this with the Spider, but when I had a Reliant Scimitar I had a tow bar-fitted bike-rack which worked quite well. Depends on whether you want to spoil the appearance of your spider by having a towball...

I just use my bike rack. It's an old Halfords one, originally designed for a hatchback - fits on my boot nicely, and is high enough so that it doesn't obscure the number plate (unlike on the hatchback!).

Sorry, don't have any pics at the moment as it's at the back of the shed ...

on a slightly off topic note....... the OP reminded me of something i saw at the weekend - a B*W 3 series cabrio, with the roof down and a 50" LCD tv sticking out of the top! nearly PMSL!!

Hi Alex,

Do you know if they are suitable for carbon fibre frames?

Do you think they would fit a spider?

Thanks
