I've been searching my triathlon and cycling forums for a cover and I'm not finding much. Anyone have a good cover they use?
Why not bring a mountain bike? You couldn't tell the difference after riding it 10 miles anyway!

Any room to put it in your toad?

Beware if your road bike is carbon fiber, I read that carbon fiber should not be exposed to heat and if your driving a diesel pusher there is some heat coming out the back if you have a rear radiator.
I will put my mountain bike on the back but the road bike I remove the wheels and put it in the underneath compartments

Interesting thought. As I stand behind the coach with the fan on it is hot, but if I can take the heat I think the CF bikes will be able to as well, it's hard to believe a manufacturer would build a bike that would fall apart from heat before the rider burst into flame....if not I'm due for a new bike anyway. That one has 21,000 miles on it. Wow, I just thought about that...both the MH and that bike were new in 2008 and the bike has 5K more miles on it. LOL
