Bike in rear of clio

Recommended Posts

Hi guys 

I'm close to buying a Clio RS cup IV, coming from a VW golf. I usually put mymountain bike with the front wheel off in the rear of the golf.

Assuming id do that again with the clio, does anyone know if a mountain bike will fit in the rear, with only the front wheel off? 

 

Thanks

I had a 90tce Clio IV and managed to EASILY fit a fixed gear bike in the back with 700cc rims , largish sized road bike frame etc.. and front wheel off....   I think you'd have no issue fitting a mtn bike in the back.  Seats flat down, etc.    I had a pic but couldnt find on old thread.

I used to fit a 29" duallie into the back of a VW Up!  Mind you, the front passenger seat was all the way forward and tilted towards the dash (unusable).  Now with a Clio, I can fit the same bike in the back with the passenger seat in a normal position.  So it's easily done.  Front wheel off, obviously.

@Jake , don't the new MK4 Clio's have a roof rack holders? , my MK3 has special things on the roof that raise up and you can use that i am sure to put a roof rack of some sort on it. never tried and i have no idea the official name for what i am referring to but happy to take pic's.

if its the case with the MK4 like my MK3 just put it on the roof?

Clio 4 has threaded holes for mounting roof rack. They are covered by door's top seal. Easy to see when you open the door

Thanks for all your replies everyone!

Yes I think they do have the roof rack mounts, i just dont trust myself to not drive under my garage and write both my bike and car off! Haha

@Jake to be honest mate , you would be more likely to get rear ended and your bike and car written off at the same time in sydney in direct comparison to the chance of your scenario happening 😂 😂 😂
