Show Us Your Shuttle Vehicle

I'm pretty sure a lot of you have bikes that cost more than your vehicle... I know that's been the case for me for a long time, until I recently picked up my YT Tues. I've had trucks, hatchbacks, sedans, etc... but this is by far my favorite shuttle vehicle / daily driver I've ever owned.



It's a 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX with 280K on the dash. Engine swapped with a 2004 STi, all terrain tires, 1.5" lift with heavy duty struts, etc... Currently only carries 2 bikes with my mega old Thule T2 rack (which I need to replace before it fails), but I'll soon have a roof rack for 3 more bikes. Might as well be able to carry as many bikes as I can people. Skid plate and bumper bar w/ lighting soon to come as well.

So, when there's no lift, what do you use to get your big bike to the top? We wanna see your whips!

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

I have a 2015 Ford Kuga 4x4 (in US known as a Ford Escape). Bike rack is german Uebler (http://www.uebler.com/portfolio-item/f22-f32-f32xl-f42/) - it takes up to three bikes and you can pack it into a bag and place it inside of car which is pretty handy.

My '04 Subie WRX loves twisty mountain roads! Anti-sway bars were well worth the dough. tracks like a beast on the twisty road out to Downieville.

Sorry bud, i'm sure one of us can give you a lift. Probably not the Abarth though, that thing is really fun, but i'm guessing 1 bike max.

Waiting for my turn to ride.

2015 Sprinter 144 Crew 4x4 High Roof. Factory bench seat set back one row to create a VW Westfalia style camper on steroids. ARB 12V fridge/cooler for beer/food freshness, 17- 20 MPG burning 98.8% renewable diesel. Room for whatever you want, seat belts for 5. Shuttled Mills with 5 bikes, 5 guys, full weekend camping gear and a Yeti full of beer and ice with great ease. Looking for a solution/replacement for the Yakima - the rear doors can't open with it on, even with a 6" hitch extension. Dream rig and daily driver: waited, saved and hoped for the 4x4 for many years. So far so good. Always worth it when you need it.

Top of an awesome run in the Pyrenees with Bike Valespir. Check these guys out if you're in that area or are planning a trip that way. Probably two thirds of my annual mileage is on bike trips, which is exactly the right ratio.

Top of Mont Ventoux

On long trip we use a custom rack, which holds the bike by the front axle. Can comfortably accommodate five bikes, sets of kit, spares and people.

I work on BMWs for a living, so i have a bunch of cheap older cars that need work all the time. The 540 wag serves as the long distance transporter (park city and down south) and the wife's LR3 serves as the fatbike hauler in the winter.
