Wow! Thank you for all of the suggestions (and I'm sure others benefited as well).

 

Tested the Hyundai Santa Fe (extended) over the weekend and my 56" Felt B16 fit standing up, but partly because there's a space between the 2nd/3rd row to drop the fork down into. I'd be happy with that configuration (front wheel off).

And the Honda Fit works as well! Didn't see an available saleperson, so I just put my bike in!

Going to look at the Acura MDX, GMC Acadia, and Dodge Durango soon. Anyone try those?

cpzone - 2013-04-08 5:41 PM Mini hijack...so how does everyone keep the bike stable while standing upright?  Maybe a dumb question, but I've never even thought about this since I'm usually traveling with just one bike layed flat.

Get a pack of bungie cords and you can loop them around the frame and hook somewhere on the door / inside of the vehicle.

Bungee cords work well, but I've also seen people use old bike tubes.
