An essential detail of bike ownership is figuring out how you are going to transport your bikes. Transportation is especially important because it needs to be figured out before the bikes arrive!
We do not have a pick-up truck (much to Tabb's dismay) so we need a bike rack for Meatball. (My car, a 2008 Kia Sportage, is named Meatball - after the NASA logo - because they are the same blue color, and I got my car right before driving it down to Houston for my summer NASA internship.)
This post has been in the making for a while. We bought our bike rack right after we bought our bikes, but it wasn't until now that I could post the finished product... installed on the car soon to have bikes in tow!
