Source wrote:Yep, if you carry bikes very often it's nice to just toss them in with the wheels on. I can get two bikes in back and still have one seat down for a passenger. It's no speed demon, but doesn't handle too bad for it's height. And no carpeting, so no worries if the tires are muddy.

But how about 2 bikes?Source wrote:PT Cruiser - don't even have to remove the front wheel. Just fold the rear seats down, turn the handlbars to about 90 degrees, close the rear hatch and off we go. Easy!

You will not be able to put your road bike in the PT without removing both wheels from the frame and fork assuming you are anal about your road bike as I am about my mountain bike and my vehicle. If it is a small frame road bike and the seat is low, you "might" be able to position it semi-vertically without the front wheel but I doubt it. Put a 1 1/4" hitch on the back and buy a insert style bike rack and you are good to go.
