    Bike in a Soul

    I am thinking about buying the Soul or a Honda Fit. If I lay down the seats in a Fit, I can fit one or possibly 2 bikes. Can I lay down the back seats and fit a bicycle inside the Soul. I could buy a hitch, but sometimes I like the security of having my bike sitting upright in the back of my car like this.

    You could measure the length and height of your bike without the front wheel and then go to a dealer and see if the Soul is big enough.

    I have layed my bike flat in the back with the front wheel removed. And it's a big frame as I'm 6'3". I'm guessing you probably wouldn't be able to have it standing upright as you show in your picture though.

    I haven't seen how she stores it, but I have a friend that bought a Soul (leaving behind a 5-series Beemer) specifically because it would hold her bike inside.
