Apparently this guy didn't read the manual.

It fits in the back seat. I removed the front wheel, covered the seat with a thick pad or towel (also the chainring) and slid her in. It's not a perfectly roomy fit but the rear wheel does clear the door when shut. I've only done it twice because the velodrome is way too far of a ride at night, but I don't think I will do it again. I'm paranoid of the interior getting gouged. I suppose I could get it in the trunk but I would have to remove both wheels and the bars/stem...maybe even the seat as well. But whats the point? I should be RIDING my bike and not driving it around.jano said:Jordi, where are you fitting the bike? Into the back seat or the trunk?
Hi jano.jano said:I cannot fit my bicycle into my e500, even when removing the front and back wheels. A number of bike racks exist, but they all leave the bike too close to the paint which I don't want to mar. The best bike racks seem to be those that attach to a hitch. Fleabay appear to have a hitch for w124s, at about $300.. seems a bit steep. My gf's dad welded a hitch to her car, but I won't let him near mine - I want something removable.
Is there an oem hitch available for the w124's? I've seen the occasional jab here in the forum, and believe me, I'm embarrassed, but it is for a good cause My e500 is a DD.
